Why stay here ...

Ashieburn C.L. is a quiet site set in the beautiful borders countryside. Beatrix Potter, Sister of Bertram who farmed here, loved to come for her holidays because there she could watch Peter Rabbit and his friends in the garden and nearby stream. The burn flows into the Ale water and river Teviot (fishing available)

The site itself is located within 20 acres of land. The pitches are grass with electric hook ups.  There is a W.C. with hot and cold water. We have a lovely woodland walk, which leads, down to the river.

We are just over a mile from the village of Ancrum, which has a shop and pub with restaurant, and 6 miles from the town of Jedburgh. Within Jedburgh there are a choice of restaurants, shops, a golf course and a range of attractions, including, Jedburgh Castle, Mary Queen of Scots house, swimming pool and tourist information. The charming border towns of Hawick, Kelso and Melrose are also within a 12-mile radius. Edinburgh is located around 46 miles to the north.

Amazing CL in the Scottish Borders

If you like pitching up in a tranquil, tucked away, well maintained CL then book this one. Plenty of room all everyone and superbly maintained. All the usual facilities with an additional WC. Look out for the bird footprints in the concrete floor. If the host does not visit you, then you get a chance to see their beautiful gardens when you go to pay. Note: if your rig is lengthy (ie 40 ft) then take care at the road entry/exit. Stone gateposts can bite!

Great All round site!

This is a beautiful, tidy and well set out cl. Lawned grass frequently close cut and collected. Water, waste and chemical waste area central, all excellently set up with rinsing etc. Spotless toilet area. Slight slope to wonderful view of river and wooded bank. Great for wildlife, kingfishers etc, with manicured formal garden adjoining and wildflower meadow in front. Nice walks from the site, down to a river and beyond. Good Dab radio and Talk talk phone reception, moderate 4g. Much to see in the area, tourist friendly towns with good quiet cycling roads adjacent and plentiful. We recommend the Woodside garden centre nearby with it's great cafe, and the Greenhouse cafe in Melrose. The Harestanes centre nearby has a fantastic play area for younger children ( maybe take a picnic?). Overall one of our top sites!

Lovely peaceful site with amazing views from all pitches

Absolutely stunning scenery ,we saw hares and a fox in the adjacent field. Roomy pitches. Close mown. Nice clean toilet. Relevant local information leaflets by the bin and honesty box for payment in case any difficulty contacting the owners. Nice area with plenty to do. Definitely recommended.

A cracker

Stayed 2 nights as a stopover on way to north Scotland. A lovely neat site with cut and collected grass Quite a slope on the pitches - ok if no awning- levelling blocks are a necessity. Clean large toilet, good views of fields and woods from pitches. Very secluded and quiet, very dark at night with no site lighting. Tv good but no mobile signal (Three). Will certainly go again but for longer than two nights!

Excellent site

A lovely quiet site with good short dog walks down to the river on site. Owners away when we arrived but good info in centre of site plus friendly welcome from gardener Alasdair helped us settle in rapidly. Owner Diane met us on her return and was also very pleasant and helpful. Well placed for access to Jedburgh, Melrose. On the doorstep is Ancrum with active pub and friendly local shop and the great Harestanes Visitor Centre with a range of short/medium walks and craft/food/cafe outlets. Excellent value at £12.50 per night plus clean loo block.
