Why stay here ...

Nestled in a beautifully landscaped setting, Lidalia Club Site is also within easy strolling distance of the quaint village of Newcastleton, a Scottish Borders settlement in the heart of Liddesdale. The site offers a peaceful, unspoilt haven for a great family holiday getaway. The site also boasts being number one for the famous 7 Stanes - a must for any mountain bike enthusiast.

Lidalia Club Site gives you the opportunity to relax in beautiful natural landscapes as well as experience the charms of Newcastleton. Once the scene of many bloody battles between the Scots and the English, the village is today best known for its traditional Scottish Music Festival which is held in late June/early July and also the Holm Show held on the last Saturday of August. For walking and hiking enthusiasts, the caravan park offers the challenge of endless rolling hills and anglers will be delighted to while away their time fishing in the nearby rivers. The caravan park is also conveniently close to many interesting historical sites. There is Hermitage Castle where you can be transported back in time to when Mary Queen of Scots met her lover, the Earl of Bothwell. Jedburgh House is where she is reputed to have stayed. Just across the border is Carlisle Castle and Hadrian's Wall where you can imagine the echo of Roman soldiers.

Beautiful Site

Lidalia Caravan Club Site
This was an over night stop for us after spending time in Scotland and whilst it is not the easilest are to get to it was a superb site when we arrived. We were late arriving but the Warden made us very welcome and directed us to our pitch. She fully explained the layout and gave us instructions which were very comprehensive. Clearly the owners are Caravaners and the Toilets were amazing with small rooms nothing less than En Sute facilities. We had a good walk around the site and spoke to several caravaners staying there all of who expressed the same opinion as us, what a wonderful site. The area is not a normal hoilday area and we are not sure what we would have done had we stayed longer but we understand that it is easy to access Carlisle by Bus. If in the area we would certainaly stay again and would recommend the site to others

Rather disappointed

Lidalia Caravan Club Site
We chose this site because we wanted to visit the general area which is very attractive and this site is located on the edge of the village of Newcastleton with off road walks for the dog nearby. We were also influenced by very good reviews for the site but we felt the site in general and our pitch in particular ( 15A ) left quite a lot to be desired. Contrary to other reviewers, I did not think the pitches were well spaced out and ours was quite crammed. As it’s number implies, it appeared to have been squeezed inbetween two other pitches to increase the site’s capacity ( something which seemed as if it might have been done elsewhere on the site ). The ‘squeezing in’ of extra pitches affects the electricity supply. Ours went off at 6am on the first morning whilst my wife was using her hairdryer. This has happened before on sites with low amps and can be easily rectified by flicking the trip switch back up in the electricity box supplying the site. However, the box next to our site could not be opened - it was locked. The warden’s office did not open until 9am and although the site information sheet included an out-of-hours telephone number, we could not get a phone signal anywhere on the site so that was no use. In the end I managed, with brute force, to prise open the door of the electricity box sufficiently to reach the trip switch and re-set it but the episode left me distinctly unimpressed. When I reported the matter to the warden, she said there is only a 10 amp supply to our pitch which I told her people should be made aware of before they are given the site. Anyway, I would advise anybody visiting the site to avoid pitch 15A. On the plus side, the site is well maintained and is certainly a convenient location on the edge of the village although the village’s facilities are a bit basic. There are also good walks direct from the site into woodland although the path from the middle of the site goes up some steep steps and then requires a scramble up a very steep and sometimes slippery slope to reach the main woodland path. My wife could not make it up the slope and I think others would also struggle. There is an alternative path at the northern end of the site and which also leads down the river where there is a bridge leading to other walks on the other side of the river.

Very pretty and well laid out grassy site with hardstanding

Lidalia Caravan Club Site
Very pretty and well laid out grassy site with hardstanding, ponds and views of lovely hillsides and woods. Amazing rookery in nearest ridge of trees, and get a rook "murmuration" in evening. Small Spar minimarket in town, plus 2 cafés, 2 pubs/hotels for evening meals. Great walks along the Liddel river, and old railway, plus out onto the moors to the superb Blackburn Falls. Lovely drive down Liddesdale form the north.

lovely place

Lidalia Caravan Club Site
Stayed for 4 nights from the 19th Sept. The site is very nicely laid out, and is very well kept. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities are excellent and were always very clean. The village is only a short walk from the site, and has all the essentials that you might need for a short stay. We can recommend the Olive Tree café in the village. The coffee, cakes and ice-cream are very good and the service is friendly and efficient. There are plenty of easily accessible walking and cycling routes direct from the site suitable for all levels of ability. The site reception sell a local walking guide for £2.00, which is well worth buying. Definitely deserving of another visit sometime in the future :-)

Fab site marred by noisy building work, and barking dogs...

Lidalia Caravan Club Site
Stayed here twice before, and had really good experiences, but this one was marred by noisy builders. You are allocated a pitch, and on arrival, after paying, was told, 'we've got a really good pitch for you!'. And it was, overlooking the pond, but what we weren't told, was that a few yards away, over the boundary fence, builders were putting in drains. We arrived during their lunch break, so were unaware, until the mechanical diggers started up. This continued all week. The owners also need to get to grips with noisy dogs. On a pitch near us, every time someone walked past, the dog went berserk. After a child started crying, a lady had a row with the owner, who said; 'he only does it when someone walks past.' So, apparently, the answer is not to walk past the pitch, rather than the owner control their pet.
