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.

Arrived and left.

1 out of 5

Melrose has been one of our favourite sites for a good few years. We arrived on Sunday 10th July, to be greeted with you only book for 1 person there are 2 of you. Genuine mistake on my part. Next crime I had booked on line in Febuary! We were booked in and payed. I thought price a bit more than I expected but due to greeting didn't say anything. We drove around realised that the only 3 pitches left were unsuitable for us, either backing onto the tennis courts or the housing estate. Both areas are no no from previous visits. Needless to say we were given a refund and we left. As we were going we were then informed some of our preferred areas would be free the following morning. On working it out I realised why I thought it expensive I had been overcharged £25!!! Not only does the lady need to treat people arriving for a holiday with a little more curtisy but she also needs to learn to add up. In the 16years of membership we have never met so rude a warden, the male warden didn't say a word just stared fron behind the office door frame. We found an affiliated site and it is a gem.

 

Message from The Club:

We are very sorry your expectations were not met on this occasion and wanted to clarify re the alleged overcharge, it appears that in-fact the £25 was not an over charge, it would appear that there was some confusion with 2015 & 2016, pricing as follows: 2015 pricing for STDHA for 2 adults was £23, this breaks down as £7.40 per adult with an £8.20 pitch charge = £115 for a 5 day stay. Prices for 2016: for STDHA is £28 based on 2 adults, which breaks down as £8.50 per adult and a £11 pitch charge =  £140 for a 5 day stay, giving the price difference of £25.

On the subject of the warden being rude, this is certainly not what we have experienced from the staff on Site and generally we receive encouraging and positive comments in relation to how the staff fulfil their duties, which is reflected in the positive reviews and feedback we receive from members who visit the site. We welcome you to contact us if you would like to discuss your experience further.

Quality of facilities excellent. Very well maintained camp site. Welcome and advice given by wardens was good. Ideal for Motorhome and was a good stopping off point on our way up to Scotland. Very close to Melrose centre just a short stroll to the High Street for provisions and meals
