Why stay here ...

Our CL at The Bairnkine is situated on our working farm of almost 1100 acres, nestling below The Cheviot Hills. Adults, children and pets are welcome and we encourage you to take a walk on the farm using our established walks deer, duck, squirrel and badger walk. You can also walk to some of our ponds and watch the wildlife and birds.

The site is located just off our farm drive and offers two hardstanding and three grass pitches, all with electric hook up and space for awnings. Wifi is free. There is a water point - please note our water is from our own private supply.

We are situated approximately an hour's drive from Newcastle, Carlise and Edinburgh; so a great base for exploring the Scottish Borders. Jedburgh is only three miles away with Mary Queen of Scots house, Jedburgh Jail and Jedburgh Abbey and some lovely coffee shops too. Other Border towns which have lots to see and do in are Kelso, Hawick and Melrose.

There are lots of activities in the area including fishing, mountain biking, walking or horse riding. We can help you organise these activities.

Come and stay with us in the Borders and relax doing as little or as much as you want!

Quiet but quite sloping

This was a typical farm CL, basic and tidy. The grass round the pitches was cut and collected, but not collected on approach to water and waste and bin areas, so cuttings clung to footwear when grass was wet. The site has a double slope - front to back and side to side so a lot of levelling blocks required and on our pitch the back of the caravan was almost touching the ground with the front high in the air. The owners were very busy silaging etc so were not met, and I had to go to the house to pay or probably wouldn't have seen the owner, Lucy was friendly and helpful when we did meet though. It was peaceful and quiet with minimal farm noise with many sheep in the adjacent field - how many? - I fell asleep at 118 !! A good site for a short stay to visit the local towns and walks. Certainly worth the £12 pn fee, and recommend, though you must take alternative pastime to the TV - no signal whatsoever.

Excellent CL in beautiful setting

We enjoyed a super break on this quiet, well run and tidy CL. The waymarked walks on the farm were excellent in addition to walks direct from the site into Jedburgh and surrounding area. We were given a warm welcome by the owners who were friendly and knowledgeable. Remember to read the notice board on arrival which gives useful information about the site. The views from the site were superb. We will definitely return to this site when next in the area. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Fabulous CL Great location

What a fabulous location 3 miles from Jedburgh, great views, lots of wildlife and walks a plenty once lambing has finished in late May. Two hard standing pitches and rest to grass with EHU, water and refuse facilities together with a brick built bbq for visitors use. Birdsong is the main noise heard with occasional working farm sound added to stunning open views are the sites main positives. Lovely warm welcome from Lucy and as we were there in May only main farm tracks available for walking, this still gives plenty of choice but better when wildlife walks are open after lambing finished. I saw Deer, Hare Rabbit and many birds even with dog walking alongside me. Farm mainly sheep with some cattle gives plenty to look at, site well maintained and in good order. Good strong WiFi included in the price. Plenty to do locally our first time at Jedburgh which is a gem of a town with castle dungeons, abbey and Mary Queen of Scots house. Easy MH parking in town too. Good access from A68 too
