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.

A fabulous year round site

Visited here in mid January 2019. The site is in a lovely village, with a couple of hotels, shops, and an excellent butcher.The Community has recently added fuel pumps and an electric charging point. The site has all hard standing pitches with several service points. The toilet and shower blocks are very clean and warm ( essential during the winter). The welcome is very friendly and the wardens will always go out of their way to help . The site is peaceful, with some owls at night. This is a great place for wildlife. There are Hen Harriers on Langholm Moor (only a few miles away); deer and foxes in the forests; badgers can be seen at a hide in the forest; wild goats on the Langholm Moor, and of course the delightful owls on the site. For the outdoor lovers this site has great walks in the hills and forests. The area is a Mecca for mountain biking, part of the 7 Stanes network. Road cycling also has several great routes. For star gazers it is superb, as this is in a Dark Skies area, and only a 30 minute drive to the Observatory at Kielder. Highly recommended.

Great location for exploring the Borders anytime of the year

Helpful site manager, good all weather access and facilities, including for wheelchair user. Centrally situated in the village, but very quiet and peaceful. Great range of local walks straight out of the site. All amenities available within village (including 24/7 self-service fuel station); The Grapes Hotel is especially friendly, welcomes dogs, and serves great food. We had one night of snow/ice, but the main roads are well gritted and remained passable with care, even in our rig, which has very little traction. It's such a nice village, being snowed in would be no hardship anyway! Well placed for exploring the Borders - we managed Hadrian's Wall, the Solway Coast & Kielder Forest in the three days we were there, and look forward to going back. Will take mountain bikes and canoes next time too - loads to do if you like the great outdoors.

Lovely site

We stayed at Lidalia for nights in July. It is really well cared for and the owners seem to be constantly busy keeping it this way. In the ladies there are 4 individual large bathrooms with excellent showers, sink and loo. These were a lovely treat after a long day out walking. You can walk directly from the back of the site into the woods where it is perfect for dogs to run off lead which ours loved. There are a couple of pubs in Newcastleton and a few shops. We bought the small brochure from reception with local walks in which was handy and explored some beautiful areas. ///

Very Friendly SIte

We stayed here for 5 nights using it as a base for a motorcycling holiday. The site and facilities are excellent, Newcastleton village is a 2 minute walk away and there are shops and a good pub for food. Pitches are spacious and flat with ample service points for motorhomes. Site staff are very welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definitely be going back there.

A little piece of heaven.

We have just had a 3 night stay at Lidalia on our way up to Berwick on Tweed and enjoyed it so much we called in for another night on our way home, booking in was a pleasure and we were given a great choice of pitches, toilets and showers plus waste etc are top class, hosts are very welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble, if you like peace and quiet and watching the rabbits and pheasants etc you will not be disappointed here, we can recommend the Grapes pub for excellent reasonable priced food etc, also the Olive tree café just further on from pubs, all within easy flat walking distance, will definitely be going back in the not too distant future.
