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.

A great location

Rarely do you find a site so close to a town - Co-op not even a minute away. The most amazing restaurant, Marmions, five minutes away. Lovely shops. And the viaduct, 5 mins drive away is amazing. Enough dog walking local too. The only downer is we fell the Caravan Club are being too draconian about allowing visitors. Not this site’s fault. We know how to manage risk and having a friend for dinner in our MoHo would not affect anyone else. A moan at CAMC not at this site.

As always, excellent, but slightly spoilt by inconsiderate few

Site wardens are excellent and friendly, and the site is superbly located within the town, with equally superb selection of eateries adjacent. The Covid safety provisions were clearly explained, and were very straightforward, with simple rubber band system for accessing toilet block, with very clear signage. Sadly on our stay there were a few who disregarded this, not simply one-off mistakes, but regular offenders, who when challenged, it was clear their misplaced sense of self-importance was matched only by their selfishness and disregard for fellow members. Given the demographic was in the main 55+, the most at risk group, I was somewhat staggered by this. Similar issue with dogs fouling on the grassy area adjacent to our awning. Not had this problem on this site before, so not sure why on this occasion a small number of members were somewhat more inconsiderate than is usual on Club sites. This said, the plusses very much outweigh the negatives, and we will most certainly visit again.

One nighter in August

We stayed here for one night at the end of August. Site was nice and tidy and the Warden was very polite and helpful. Bathroom facilities were restricted and only allowed two in at a time - by way of wristbands - this seemed to work well unless someone forgets to pick up their wristband on the way out (giving the impression that they are still in thee facilities). Site was very well located with a Co-op at the entrance to the site and only a couple of minutes walk from town centre. Would definitely come back for a longer stay to explore a bit further afield.

Great site

We had a great week at Melrose with other family members, even though it rained every day! The site is in the middle of the town, and has a Co-op store just across the road from the main gate. There’s some nice pubs and restaurants in the town, but we would thoroughly recommend The Provender restaurant! The food is to die for! The shower block is very clean, apart from when some people can’t be bothered to use the squeegee after they’ve showered!! However, the showers do have a look of being somewhat tired and worn now. We stayed on pitch no.19 which flooded at the back during the heavy rain. Consequently, the back of our awning was under about an inch of water for a good part of the week. It could do with being built up. Overall, we had a great time at Melrose Gibson. It’s perfectly located in an area with lots of hiking and cycling opportunities. We will definitely be staying again!
