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.

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.

I can't rate this site highly enough. Brilliant

Wow. Location, location location. But so much more. The staff are brilliant, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The facilities are brilliant. The pitches are a good size and well laid out. The site really is on the edge of the town but when on site you could be anywhere. The walks are amazing and I would recommend the purchase of the local walks book from reception which is so easy to follow. There are superb walks in this book including the Eldon Hills. The Abbey is well worth a visit. The station Hotel is great for a drink and is dog friendly. A fabulous site. One on our list to revisit again. Thank you

Nice site

Having read other reviews I thought I would add my thoughts It’s a nice little site - toilets and showers are clean but showing their age. Noise comments come as your ins town next to a school so playtime is clearly heard but was never really a problem and school hours are not 247 Would I stay again - yes without hesitation- you even have a co-op on your doorstep and Melrose towns lovely shops a minute away.
