Why stay here ...

Gallowslaw is situated on the eastern side of the Scottish Borders with easy access from the A1. It is a short drive/cycle from the coast and a great stop off for those travelling further north in Scotland

Gallowslaw is a quiet and peaceful site with wonderful views of the surrounding farmland and sea to the east. Being in the heart of the countryside means you will be able to see roe deer, hares, buzzards and tawny owls from your van.

Gallowslaw is a large (¾ acre) spacious grass site, with plenty of room for awnings with no extra charge.A recent new hard core, all weather thoroughfare has been added for ease of access and egress.

Families are welcome, along with dogs. There are plenty of great dog walks in the area and a farm track runs along the front of the site with wonderful views and wildlife along it.

Gallowslaw is a great base for:

  • Coldingham (3 miles away) with its historic priory and beautiful coastline. In Coldingham you will find 2 pubs, a garage, shops, a post office/cafe as well as a really good fish and chip shop and a great beach which is protected by life guards in the summer. 
  • St Abbs (4 miles away) is a picturesque fishing village and nature reserve which is a haven for local sea birds and wildlife. There is great walking around the reserve and along the coastal foot paths. 
  • Historic houses; Paxton, Manderston and Floors Castle. 
  • Edinburgh; lots of our visitors spend at least one day in the city. If your visiting in August make sure to catch the Fringe Festival. 
  • Many more seaside towns such as Eyemouth, North Berwick, Berwick-Upon-Tweed and Dunbar- each
  • with great local beaches to visit. Local Shops in 1.5 Miles.

Love this CL!

Basic but fantastic! We stayed here for 4 nights in August and wished it could be more as it was so peaceful (admittedly 2 of the nights we had the whole site to ourselves!). Great field in front of pitches for children to run around on. Well kept, though we never saw the owner, and everything we needed. Sloping (hence the funny photo) but there are levelling blocks should you need them. Our children (7, 5 and 4) enjoyed the museum's in eyemouth, st abbs head walk and coldington beach.

Perfect CL site

We stayed for a week at the end of June '19, and have no complaints at all. There are now 2 hardstandings with a hard driveway through the site, as opposed to the photos which show just a grass field, and a neatly stacked pile of levelling blocks by the information boards. The owner came round just once, and was very pleasant, seemed like a nice man, and wasn't intrusive, insisting we still used the honesty box, when we offered to pay him while he was with us. The approach road is fairly rough, but not very long, and low gear and a gentle attitude will get you through! We were sited on the hard standing at the top of the site, and had the field to ourselves for most of the week, and even when the other pitches filled up towards the end of our stay, there is enough room not to feel "invaded". There was no disturbance from the working farm road, which is the approach road, and we only had evidence of a lorry going in and out daily to a shed up the road because we have wildlife trap cameras set up, and saw it on there. There is a sign on the board with a map of the owners land which you are welcome to walk round, which we did, and plenty of wildlife to see. We easily filled our week staying here with visits to St Abbs Head, Banburgh, Berwick etc and have no reservations about giving the site a 5 Star rating. PS. The chemical toilet disposal point is a work of art! so don't complain about it. It's basic but it works.

Super CL

Stayed for 6 days walking the coast path. This site met all our wishes for a basic quiet site with views and electrics. Very well maintained with short grass and a good hard core road up the field meaning no worries about getting on or off. 3G and tv reception good. No contact from site owner but available at end of phone if required. The rough access track is only 200 metres and fine if taken slowly. Would highly recommend this site.

Peaceful Suntrap

Just spent a very enjoyable weekend at this lovely site. As previously mentioned you just turn up, pitch where you like and put your payment in the honesty box. The owners don't bother you at all but there are contact details on the information board should you need them. The site is very easy to find provided you use the club directions rather than satnav, (which will send you to the wrong place). The final approach to the site up a private road is quite a bumpy ride, with a couple of potholes near the start but it is okay as long as you take it slowly. The site itself is a sloping field surrounded on three sides with hedges and lovely views over fields on the other side. One pitch at the top of the field is level but for the others you will need levelling blocks, (we couldn't find any supplied by the site). We were pitched at the bottom of the field and had no problem getting level and putting an awning up. It was dry and sunny whilst we were there though and I think in heavy rain it would become quite waterlogged and therefore very easy for a heavy rig to get stuck at the bottom of the site! The water tap is at the top of the field and had very good pressure. The waste disposal was at the bottom screened by fencing. There are recycling facilities. The TV and mobile signals (Talk Talk & Three) were excellent. The site is approximately 5 min drive from Coldingham, where there is a butchers, a Spar and a couple of pubs. We ate very tasty food at The New Inn, which was incredibly full so booking in advance is recommended. We also did the Coldingham to Eyemouth coastal walk which was great for our dogs who could be "off lead" virtually the whole way. In summary we really enjoyed our stay and at £10 per night, (no extra charges for awnings etc), it was a bargain. We would definitely return.
