Hello! You’ve found us. 

Welcome to Singdean, a secret gem in the wild landscape. Over 1000 feet, 340m, high. A cosy warm hideaway with a big heart. A friendly and informal remote retreat. Ego free. 

After a twisty drive in the hills and woodlands, you may think you’ve taken a wrong turn. Then, nestled with her back to the world, you see Singdean.

Alpnhaus is in the foreground, and Singdean in the back.

Here at Singdean we have just two bedrooms - you can stay in Alpnhaus, the award winning private chalet, exclusive use for two with personal outdoor wood fired hot tub. Or Singdean Suite, your own private part of the stone house (used to be the barn) with your own entrance, a personal outdoor wood fired sauna and hot tub. Or book them both for a special occasion with friends or family. 

So the most amount of guests at any one time is just four adults. Plus us two with our dogs Milka and Alpi (although they tend to stay in our private area). 


No matter how much you love you children, there are times when you need the peace and quiet of a child free environment. Singdean is that getaway you need and, as such, is child free. 

For those of you leaving children with loved ones, you are welcome to leave our land line number in case of emergencies as there is not much, if any, mobile coverage.


Although we don’t take kids, we do take dogs with prior arrangement. (Not at all strange!) And at no extra charge. Maximum of 2 dogs.

There is a magical stillness to Singdean.

One that calms the busy mind and refuels the aching soul.

Thank you Christa and Del, you are the perfect hosts and congratulations on your relaxing and tranquil retreat.

….until next time. October 2018

Here you can see us, tucked into the remote Cheviot Hills and forests of the Scottish Borders close to Northumberland. A total getaway from it all, a romantic retreat, an escape. A chance to recharge your batteries. Leave your straightening irons at home and enjoy the freedom. We’re a bit of a secret you’ll not want to share. And we’re totally off grid. Who knew being off grid can also be so luxurious...

We are surrounded by the beautiful natural Scottish Borders landscape. Which also means wildlife. You may see the comings and goings of vole and stoats outside. Or spot the Red Squirrel in the garden. You may even see deer in the garden. You may hear the hooting of our male tawny owl and the screeching of the female tawny owl. And see their baby owls. You will probably see our resident buzzards and see the Sparrow Hawk. Or the pair of Eagles if you’re lucky. 

You can just about see Singdean and Alpnhaus on the brow of the hill.

Whether it’s a stop over or you have a special occasion, such as a birthday, anniversary, honeymoon or you just need to getaway, we hope to see you soon at Singdean.  

Christa and Del

Snuggled in with her back to the world, you can see Singdean.
