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.

Noisy, sandwiched between a busy school playing field and backing on to a housing estate!

In my humble opinion this is a pop by site, its fine for stopping off on onward journeys, it's close to a walkable town with restaurants but you either have to pitch backing on to or looking at a rather ugly housing estate, just the kind of view you don't want when you open the blinds or like us park back on to a busy very noisy floodlit playing field. The overly lit site itself seeps into your caravan through every orifice never mind the noisy over lit playing fields being mown and tended 1st thing. We stopped over for few nights, sadly with hindsight we wish it had been less. Otherwise nice helpful staff, well maintained. It's horses for courses and depends on how you like it.

Lovely site for stopovers to and from Scotland

This is a great little site within a few minutes walk of the town so easy access to shops & eateries. We stayed for 3 nights en-route to Scotland and they were very busy and only had tarmac hard standings available which were fine as we didn't need our awning. The normal pitches are large and level so if you prefer an awning pitch, book early. As with most CMC sites, the facilities were spotlessly clean and the site itself well maintained.

A Gem of a Site

This was our second visit to Melrose. As before we found a first class site, well maintained, and in a convenient location. Staff friendly and helpful. Lots of lovely walks around without having to drive. Good for dogs.

Summer Holiday 2019

Stayed at this site for two nights towards the end of our holiday. First time here and impressed by the location and closeness to the town of Melrose. Being a motorhome owner we look to visits sites with good facilities and public transport links nearby. This site has this in abundance, the town has numerous interesting shops pubs and good eating place nearby. The local co-op is just outside the site entrance with good opening times. We were there the last day of the open championship and I spent 5 hours in the Ship Inn watching it on Sky Sports and chatting to the locals in the pub. If you like tennis there is a club close by the site and they welcome visitors to make use of the excellent three courts there. Having only stayed two nights we were limited in what we could do but we will certainly visit again. Our one comment would be the toilet block could do with upgrading to the new club standards we experienced on other sites we visited this trip. The shower area is quite cramped and still has the white square stools which are not as common on club site now, for this reason only we gave it a 4 on the facilities option.
