Why stay here ...

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan 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 Caravan 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.

winter seasonal

Have used this site for many years. we had a go at a winter seasonal the first time ever. Melrose is a great base for the winter nights. lots of places for long walks at night with the dogs. enjoyed the Christmas parade around the town and the carol singing at the tree. town was very festive. a great bonus with the co op opening at the gate. Site was empty and quiet. Only down side was when we came one weekend to use our motorhome it had been damaged by a air rifle thus we now have large dent. So no more winter seasonals for us.

Why not Return !

Visited July 2016 for about the sixth time and will continue to do so. What a joy this place is, a delightful site which is beautifully maintained and with the welcome of the flower display.Everything about the site is good. What could be better than an early morning stroll into the town for breakfast, or collecting the papers or taking the dog down to the river. No wonder the site is always full.

Great Site

Just stayed for 1 night to try out our new motorhome. Apart from it being absolutely freezing, we had a great time. Good site, so close to the centre. Very clean facilities and very helpful people at reception. Would definitely stay again.

Always a pleasure!

We've stayed in Melrose many times and really enjoy it's proximity to the Town and all of the facilities there. We spent last Christmas there and despite the weather, enjoyed a peaceful and relaxed holiday. This time we ate out at the Kings Arms, getting a 10% discount for being members, and found the food and service excellent. The site has a dog walk though we rarely use it as there are numerous places to walk your dog outside the site especially alongside the river Tweed. Wardens, as ever, were friendly and helpful. Not the biggest site but perfect for those wanting to be close to facilities.
