Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site is nestled on the edge of Melrose in a peaceful setting that is overlooked by the beautiful Eilden Hills, once named Trimontium by the Romans. A short walk from the caravan park are the charming shops, lovely restaurants and pubs and historic buildings of Melrose, including the famous ruins of Melrose Abbey, the resting place of Robert the Bruce's heart.

Walking enthusiasts will be delighted when visiting Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site - there are 1,500 miles of footpaths to explore along the banks of the Tweed or by hiking up into the High Country to view the Borders' picturesque, rural patchwork. The caravan site also gives you easy access to excellent cycle routes as well as fishing in the River Tweed. Nearby Gibson Park has 60 pitches for golfing enthusiasts and if you are a fan of rugby, the second Saturday in April hosts the annual Melrose Sevens Rugby Tournament. Another event not to be missed is the colourful Melrose Festival, held in mid June each year. There is plenty to see and do in the local area and the site is also well placed for exploring the Scottish Borders.

Visitors to Melrose Gibson Park can now take advantage of the new railway line that connects the Scottish Borders to Edinburgh. The site is around 1.5 miles (30 minutes' walk) from Tweedbank Station, and the train can get you into the heart of Edinburgh in just 55 minutes, avoiding the traffic and park and ride.

Tent camping

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site welcomes tent campers and has tent pitches available to both members and non-members. Pitches can be booked online or by phone - to do this and to find out further tent camping information, take a look at the Melrose Gibson Park tent camping.

Always keen to return

5 out of 5

Recently returned from another visit to Gibson Park and as always thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location is perfect with shops etc. a short stroll away plus many fine walks to suit most abilities. The site as expected is kept to a high standard by the friendly and helpful wardens. On this occasion I have only awarded four stars on "Facilities and cleanliness" cleanliness is absolutely fine but in my opinion the facilities are starting to show their age especially compared to many others in the club and with only three washing up sinks situated in an area where the wind whistles through and this on a site which is open all year is not ideal. Obviously an extremely difficult call for the club as to how and when any update would take place.

Return visit

5 out of 5

We enjoyed our return visit to Melrose and very lucky with the weather. Unfortunately some building noise due to. we believe, a supermarket being built. Fortunately it didn't spoil our stay as we were out most days and the builders gone on our return. Always a well kept site and friendly wardens. Thank you

Direction Signs

5 out of 5

As usual we thoroughly enjoyed our recent 16 night stay at Gibson Park. However, I have one, hopefully constructive, comment to make. As on many sites there is a one way traffic system in operation at Gibson Park. Unfortunately, due to the fact that it is not practical to erect permanent NO ENTRY or other directional signs because of the requirement for units to manoeuvre we have witnessed many times on our visits vehicles going the wrong way. This is often not the fault of the drivers but lack of visibility of signing. I would suggest that NO ENTRY and other directional guides be painted on the roads at the strategic points. Incidentally, I have been on the same pitch as 'Captain Nog' (pitches 1 & 2) a few times, and for more than one night, and the incidence of tennis balls coming across is very minimal.
