What makes a stay at Alpnhaus unique?
As snug as a ski lodge with bespoke interiors of natural materials. A super kingsize bed with European bedding so that you can luxuriate for as long as you wish. Surrounded by beautiful views that you can enjoy from inside too. Peaceful and joyous.
A wood-fired hot tub filled with fresh Scottish spring water is prepared for your use every evening.
Alpnhaus is placed on a rugged hillside surrounded by hills and valleys with streams and waterfalls. Singdean 'garden' has a large wildlife pond that attracts so much wildlife - from frogs to dragonflies to herons and wild ducks.
Deer, foxes, stoats and badgers are also frequent visitors. Resident barn and tawny owls to accompany your evening. And just beyond the garden, there are otters.
350 above sea level in the grounds of Singdean which dates back to the 14th Century, in the Cheviot hills in Europe's largest Dark Sky park. Alpnhaus has been made with masses of local larch, a large pinch of creativity and a heap of dedication.
