3 yurts are currently available to book, with further releases coming as soon as possible. There is a 2 night stay minimum which is GBP158, with each additional night being GBP79.

Their cosy yurts, each with a wood burning stove, are perched on a hillside with incredible views over the Firth of Clyde and Isle of Arran. This beautiful site is nestled beside a burn and is perfect for a romantic weekend escape or equally as good for tiring out young children! The glamping site features an eco-friendly design, which includes logs that were felled on the estate, solar powered lighting and a compostable loo.

Each Yurt can sleep up to 4 people (1 double bed and single roll mattresses). Each yurt comes with all bed linen, tables and chairs. No crockery or utensils are provided. The communal kitchen in the facilities block will have basic crockery and kitchen utensils. There are picnic tables for each yurt as well as a fire pit. A fire starter bundle is included (wood, kindling, firelighters). Further wood bundles can be purchased at the office.

There is no electricity in the yurts. Each yurt has a small solar panel powering 2 internal lights. A glass fronted communal building is located on the site, with toilets, showers, kitchen facilities and seating. Plug sockets are available in the communal building, for charging electronics. A compostable loo can be found beside the glamping site. Parking is available at the site, with overflow parking available at the country centre. Sorry, but no pets are allowed in the Yurts.


Want to go camping but don't want to pitch your own tent?

Kelburn Castle Estate can do this for you with their spacious Bell Tents! They have a set of incredibly spacious (5m diameter) Bell Tents for hire, which they can set up for you before arrival, in their campsite.

These are ideal for families where squeezing the tent in the car as well as everything else is just not possible! Equally save yourself the hassle of storing a tent for its annual outing and use one of their lovely soulpad tents to add quality to your experience.

Groups can also enjoy these tents - they have 5 available for group hire. Perfect for special occasions!

Why not add exclusive use of the campsite to your group stay? Price on enquiry.

Each Bell Tent can sleep up to 5 people. Bell Tents are unfurnished so please remember to bring your own bedding! There is a small car park so you can park close to your tent. There are fire pits dotted in the campsite, as well as picnic benches. The campsite is a short walk from the Toilet block which includes a shower. Sorry, but no pets are allowed inside the Bell Tents.

All prices include access to the Country Centre during opening hours (please see our website, link above)

Kelburn Castle and Estate Yurts and Bell Tents are located within one of Scotland's most beautiful woodlands combined with one of its most interesting castles.

The estate features dramatic walks, breathtaking gardens and many features of historical interest. One of Kelburn's most outstanding features is its glen. The Kelburn Glen with its waterfalls and deep gorges is regarded as one of Scotland's most beautiful woodlands and leads to spectacular views over the islands of the Firth of Clyde.

There's always something to keep the kids occupied at Kelburn. Our most popular attraction is the Secret Forest, a complex of woodland paths and raised walkways with surprises at every turn, including our Giant's Castle or Fairy Village. Then, there's our famous Adventure Park, our fortress-style Wild West Saloon, and our Playbarn, a softplay maze of tunnels, slides and dens.
