Beirhope is rurally located in the Kale Valley, within the Cheviot Hills of the Scottish Borders. Being surrounded by five Iron Age forts, Roman roads, Border Reiver trails, magnificent rolling hills and some of the darkest skies in the UK, it has allowed us to develop a successful business around nature, with slow travel and responsible tourism at the forefront of our approach.
Our aim is to encourage visitors to Beirhope, both from the local community and the wider market, to get closer to nature; to slow down and immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of the countryside. Encouraging them to take some time out to enjoy the great outdoors, promoting healthy activity and positive mental wellbeing.
