Planning Bid Submitted for Glamping Site With Hot Tubs in Scotland

A proposed glamping site north of Westcote Farmhouse offers eight mobile accommodation units and would include composting bathrooms.

Drew Glendinning of Westcote Farm submitted the application to the Scottish Borders Council.

It will add to the existing accommodations already set up by Westcote Glamping, established in 2018.

Aitken Turnbull Architects, Glendinning’s agents, says that the grounds have accommodations that are within a short travel distance from across the English Border, Edinburgh, and beyond, “thus being suitable for weekend trips and short breaks.”

Their statement also highlights the benefits of the site to the region’s tourism industry.

“The site is in a secluded setting while also having good accessibility from the nearby A698. The short distance from the A698 also means that there is little to no traffic passing neighboring properties on their way to or from the glamping site.”

“The location allows occupiers to enjoy the surrounding tourism assets, including many walking and biking opportunities, castles and heritage centers, and lots of food and drink opportunities in nearby Border towns and villages.”

“The guests generate income for the local economy, everything from taxi businesses, takeaway businesses, local restaurants, particularly Cross Keys in Denholm, retail shops on Hawick High Street, the distillery, and the newly opened Great Tapestry in Galashiels.”

“Special attention is made in drawing attention to visitors and encouraging them not to just pass through the Scottish Borders but to stop and explore and extend their stay here, all to help the local economy which at this time is more important than ever.”

Naked Flames Eco Tubs, a Huddersfield-based company, supplies these hot tubs. These luxury hot tubs are wood-fired, handcrafted from three different premium types of wood with stainless steel.

The company supplies the tubs commercially and to the general public.

All of the tubs are produced from either Spruce, Larch, or premium Thermowood.
