'A Unique Scottish Hideaway'

Set in the foothills of the Cheviot hills and on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, Gypsy Palace is a beautiful self catering cottage that can sleep up to four people and it has a fascinating history. Situated in the Scottish Borders at the most northernly point of the Pennine Way, the small village of Kirk Yetholm was regarded as the home of the gypsies of Scotland and Northern England for over 300 years; Gypsy Palace is famous the world over as the royal residence of both Queen Esther and her son and heir, King Charles Faa Blythe.

Our cottage is perfect for exploring both the Scottish Borders with its stunning moors and quaint market towns, and Northumberland with its spectacular beaches and many castles. Holy Island, Alnwick and historic Berwick upon Tweed are a short drive away while Edinburgh is just one hour away by car.
