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.

Great site, right in town

Compact site, but still with good sized pitches, and lots of screening hedges. Stayed here for 3 nights (2nd week in May), started with two separate bookings as no single pitch type was available for all 3 nights when we booked. Warden jumped through hoops to combine our two booking so that we did not have to move pitch during our stay. Every kind of shop, restaurant & pub you could want is withing easy walking distance, and there are lots of signed walking trails around too. As it is right in town, there is a little background noise, but nothing intrusive. Will be back for sure! As always on CAMC sites the site was well kept with immaculate facilities.

Compact Site on edge of Town

We stayed for seven nights first week of May. It is a compact site, well organised for it's size. Great location on the edge of Melrose town, with easy walking distance to High Street and attractions. Good dog-walks from site and plenty of off-lead opportunities; whilst the on-site dog-walk catered for the necessities. There are numerous "eateries" within easy distance and many are dog-friendly (check the list in the info office). There is a school adjacent, where play-time can be noisy; the rugby club practice on the adjacent playing field; which can also be noisy - but both are intermittent. The site has all that you need, right on the doorstep - you wouldn't have to drive anywhere ..... unless you choose to! I can recomment the Harmony Garden (free entry, with donations box) and Martin Baird Butchers in Market Square do wonderful steak pies!

Great site

We stayed here for 6 nights on a fully serviced pitch. The site is well cared for with friendly and helpful wardens. Location is excellent with all the local amenities of Melrose on the doorstep. Our only complaint, and it’s a small one, was the number of dogs that were wandering, sometimes running, about not under control or leads. Maybe more signs are needed!

If you want to get out and about, this is the ideal location

Stayed for a couple of nights whilst out biking and walking in the area. Very close to town which has some nice shops. Tennis courts next to the site, plus a large park for the kids. Those that want a bit of a hike, can highly recommend doing the three hills that over look the site. Takes about 3 hours and some stunning views from the top. Site was well maintained (like all the sites), everything clean. Perks of being a member, is knowing no matter where you go, you are going to get a warm friendly welcome and some clean facilities to use. Takes the worry out of things.
