Acres and Acres of farmland set deep in the gorgeous Scottish Borders..... A woodland field with hooting owls and the scent of honeysuckle on the breeze.... And in the distance, the soft green peaks of the Lammermuir Hills....

Airhouses is more than an award-winning holiday escape - it's an experience you will never forget. Choose from a five star self catering lodge or romantic glamping pod, each with its own private hot tub. Then explore woodland walks, hiking trails and the peaceful village of Oxton (plus Edinburgh is less than an hour away). And don't forget to say hello to our friendly animal family of alpacas, donkeys, goats, Shetland ponies, sheep, rare breed cattle and more.

Additional Directions Information

By Road

The simplest way to reach Airhouses is by car and there is plenty of parking. If you put in our postcode you will be taken the wrong way. If you put in the post code TD2 6PY you will come up the road straight from the village of Oxton and as the road levels out, you will see a purple sign. Turn right at this sign, over a cattle grid and follow the farm road for 1 mile.

We are situated 2 miles off the A68, half an hour south of Edinburgh. The nearest village is Oxton, and the nearest small town is Lauder. Directions from the North and the South from the A68 are downloadable from the bottom of the page.
