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.

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.

Autumn stay

We called here for a couple of nights in July on our way home from Skye and were so impressed we promised to return. The site is tucked in the corner of a pleasant village with enough facilities to keep the cupboards and fridge well stocked. The site itself is clean and tidy and the washrooms spacious and clean. Everyone is friendly and helpful on the site and in the village.Some great walks direct from the site which suits our 3 dogs. We didn't try the pub even though it is dog friendly its pushing it with 3 large dogs. Lots of history in the village and surrounding area with tower houses, castles and ruins. These last 6 day passed too quickly and still didn't get to see all so looks like we will be back. Can't wait.

Unfortunate incident ruined our stay!

Lovely well kept site in a good location on outskirts of village which has butchers, shops, pubs and cafes. Great area for cycling and walking. Site staff were very friendly and helpful. Toilets/showers were very spacious and clean. Sadly we were pitched adjacent to some social housing that backs on to this site and one evening someone decided to shoot an air rifle over the caravan site and our caravan was damaged! Police were called and turned up the following day! We were unfortunate but because of this distressing occurrence, we would never visit again - you could try asking for a pitch on the opposite side of the site.

Fabulous find and will visit again.

We booked this site when we couldn't get our favoured site and we were so glad we did. The access roads were fine, the welcome was warm and the pitches are all flat and a good size. We ended up on a fully serviced pitch and for a 3 night stay cost us about £65 which we thought was extremely good value. The toilet/shower facilities were spotless every day (with a hand drier that actually blew hot air fast) and the site is really well kept. Lidalia is set in a nice picturesque location surrounded by woods which were great for busy dogs. On one side there is the rear fences of houses but this did not distract from our stay at all. The worst thing about this site was the birds calling out from daybreak (noisy crows) but will not put us off from staying again. The site is in close walking distance to local village shops and pubs. We visited 'The Grapes' pub which is dog friendly and had some very nice food at a reasonable price. It may not have a play park for kids or anything like that but it is peaceful and has some great dog walks direct from the site and a river a short distance if the dogs like a swim. We didn't have any TV reception from our caravan ariel so we were loaned an ariel by our hosts free of charge. We were a bit disappointed that we had to leave and will definitely return.
