Set in the tranquil foothills of the Cheviots and on the edge of Northumberland National Park, The Palace is a beautiful four star detached self catering holiday cottage with a fascinating history. Kirk Yetholm, a small conservation village set in the Scottish Borders, was regarded as the home of the gypsies of Scotland and Northern England for over 300 years and The Palace is famous the world over as the home of the Gypsy Kings and Queens and is known as the 'Smallest Palace in the world'.
The Palace has been thoughtfully furnished and fully equipped to a high standard while retaining its unique, charismatic charm. With its log burning stove, well equipped kitchen, stylish bathroom and relaxing summer house, combined with magnificent views and set in its own mature garden, Gypsy Palace makes an idyllic year round holiday retreat, sleeping up to four people.
Downstairs accommodation includes a comfortable lounge, a small dining room (with its unusual 19th century arched window), utility room, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.
Upstairs, both the master bedroom and the second bedroom offer the most breathtaking views - south, over the Bowmont Valley and north across to the church, Town Yetholm and the valley beyond.
