Braeside Retreats – Bespoke Luxury Holiday Pods in Caithness Braeside Retreats – Bespoke Luxury Holiday Pods in Caithness

Pick a pod

Here at Braeside Retreats, we are offering truly bespoke accommodation.   Hand crafted by local tradesmen just a mile from the site, our pods are far more spacious than your average camping pod!  Each is fully equipped to ensure true comfort and luxury to our guests.  Relax into our kingsize beds and comfy sofas, unwind in your private hot tub and take in the view whist you sip a glass of wine on your private terrace.  Entertain the whole family by walking down to the Braeside Retreats play area, complete with large trampoline, swings, slide and sandpit!  Ideal for little ones and big kids at heart.  Or why not take a stroll down to the communal fire pit area where you can build a fire in the evening and toast marshmallows!

Two of our pods, The Stable and The Byre, are dog friendly, we would love to welcome your four-legged friend to the site!  Please take a look at our Pets Policy and if you choose to bring them, they will receive a welcome treat on arrival.

As animal lovers on a  working farm, we felt it only fair to include the animals when we were designing the pods. All the pods at Braeside Retreats will provide the same stunning views, amenities and are all finished to the same high standard BUT each pod has its own very special, individual identity – which one will you choose? Have a browse and pick your perfect pod.

On arrival at your pod,  you will find tea, coffee and sugar with some yummy local bakers biscuits to get your holiday off to a great start.  On top of this we can offer you some truly special touches should you wish to sample the rich larder of local produce we have available here.  When booking, you can choose to add in a luxury breakfast pack to make your stay extra special and care-free!

Local Butcher’s Breakfast Pack – 8 rashers of unsmoked back bacon, 4 pork link sausages, 2 local black pudding slices, free range local eggs, a loaf of bread from a local baker, butter, milk and some delicious Caithness Jam.    £22



The Byre

Join the highland cows as they bed down for the night in their cosy byre (the traditional Scottish word for cowshed).  With a striking print “Gone with the Wind” by Edinburgh artist Tori Ratcliffe hanging over the bed, draw the thick tartan wool curtains and snuggle up in The Byre with a cup of tea or glass of wine.  This is a dog friendly pod.
