Why stay here ...

Melrose Gibson Park Club Site is nestled on the edge of Melrose in a peaceful setting that is overlooked by the beautiful Eilden Hills, once named Trimontium by the Romans. A short walk from the caravan park are the charming shops, lovely restaurants and pubs and historic buildings of Melrose, including the famous ruins of Melrose Abbey, the resting place of Robert the Bruce's heart.

Walking enthusiasts will be delighted when visiting Melrose Gibson Park Club Site - there are 1,500 miles of footpaths to explore along the banks of the Tweed or by hiking up into the High Country to view the Borders' picturesque, rural patchwork. The caravan site also gives you easy access to excellent cycle routes as well as fishing in the River Tweed. Nearby Gibson Park has 60 pitches for golfing enthusiasts and if you are a fan of rugby, the second Saturday in April hosts the annual Melrose Sevens Rugby Tournament. Another event not to be missed is the colourful Melrose Festival, held in mid June each year. There is plenty to see and do in the local area and the site is also well placed for exploring the Scottish Borders.

Visitors to Melrose Gibson Park can now take advantage of the new railway line that connects the Scottish Borders to Edinburgh. The site is around 1.5 miles (30 minutes' walk) from Tweedbank Station, and the train can get you into the heart of Edinburgh in just 55 minutes, avoiding the traffic and park and ride.

Enjoyable Stsy

We decided on a trip up to Scotland on the Friday and checked in on Sunday afternoon. Lovely welcome from the relief wardens. Site is close to town so lovely meander to the shops. Co Op at the gate. River walks were very nice and very peaceful. Easy distance to Kelso and Jedburgh great for a wander. Site well maintained and although you are close to the school its not to obtrusive.

Great local goto site for us

It's only 60 miles from our house but could be a million miles away in terms of a relaxing, easy going break. Our stays vary 2 - 5 days and we generally head there 4-5 times a year. This visit was up to the usual high standard - Relief wardens in the office but a warm welcome as always. Our usual serviced pitch was open so yay - right in there. Facilities warm, clean and usual high standard - never appeared busy despite the weekend being pretty full. Local amenities and shop in Melrose excellent - Chest Heart and Stroke shop has got to be one of the highest value shops of this kind - all sorts of expensive goodies at low prices. Strangely same could be said of the town whisky shop where I managed to land a very good malt at half of the advertised prices in other shops- result. Only advice is book early, on rugby weekends Melrose is a busy place and pitches go quick.

Little gem

Lovely little site right on the edge of Melrose town. The front street has all the shops you’d need, butchers, fishmonger, bakeries, fruit&veg and if you can’t find it there, there’s a coop at the entrance to the site. There’s lots of walking either along the riverside or up the hills, can’t really go wrong if you visit here ... it’s a great place to explore.

Melrose Gibson - Excellent

Just returned from a week here at Melrose Gibson Park. What an absolute gem of a site. After a 371 mile drive it was so easy to book in and select our pitch. The staff were so helpful and genuine, a rare attribute in many other sectors, thanks. For visiting the Borders and the lovely train trip to Edinburgh, it was ideal. Would we go again? Most certainly, but the only problem is it is too far away from where we live, as it would rank as number one for our choice for a lot more visits, shame. Not a lot for children here, but that suited us.

Excellent site - Faultless

Just returned from 5 days on this lovely site. From the minute we arrived, the booking in and friendliness of the wardens could not have been better. As with previous reviews it is hard to pick fault with anything. Pitches were of a good size - we were on a serviced pitch (No38) with everything to hand and also benefited with a nice dividing hedge to keep the cold wind at bay !!. Toilets and showers were spotless and warden was continually on the go keeping the site in pristine condition. We reported that the light on our power column was not working to reception on the way back from one of the great walks from the site and it was attended to before we got back to our van !!!. We have 2 Golden Retrievers who had a different walk from the site each day - no need to travel anywhere with our car. Melrose has everything you require and some nice eateries with beer gardens when the sun shines. We will definitely return but for a longer stay the next time.
