This genuinely is the PERFECT place for a couple looking for a romantic get-away-from-it-all experience. Perhaps a honeymoon, special anniversary or birthday? Tucked away into the South Scottish Borders, Alpnhaus is an off-grid experience like nothing I've ever seen in Scotland before. Yes this is a gorgeous gorgeous alpine style lodge in stunning scenery - but it's more than that. Christa and Del, the very stylish and lovely owners have added understated luxury here with the finishings and extra services that are provided. For example, they carefully tend the wood-fired hot tub to get it to the exact right temperature for you at 7pm, so you can star gaze while you soak away life's stresses.. imagine the bliss of your own fresh spring water hot tub with a glass of bubbly and the smell of wood smoke from the fire. They also come and arrange a fresh breakfast for you in the morning on your table, so you don't have to think about it. The quality and care here is outstanding, it's not just a cabin thrown up in the hills, it's an award winning architect designed large mountain chalet which Christa and Del dreamed of creating for many years. It is very obvious to see that they have poured a massive amount of love and hard work into this project. They also own a shop, 'DASALPi' selling quality crafted Alpine inspired products, many of which you'll find in the cabin along with a king size bed with German down duvets and the best quality natural Belgian soft linen to help you have a deeply restorative sleep. The cabin is even scented with a special mountain pine essential oil to help you relax even more - how wonderful. Should the sun be out, there's a large south facing veranda to make full use of it. In the winter months, the stars and Milky Way can astound you. You are situated next to Europe's largest Dark Sky Park, with no light pollution at all, WOW! Or you may even get to enjoy the feeling of sitting out in the hot tub with fresh snow falling silently around - you are 340m above sea-level here. Of course, nature is all around too - the owls, birds of prey, even the local friendly badger likes to get up close and personal with some guests if you're lucky. This is an exclusive experience just for two. So if you have them, leave the children at home - this will help you make the most of what Alpnhaus is all about - sinking into Alpine cosiness and relaxation. Heavenly.
