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.

Perfect start for our first outing, except for the storm. Good winter venue

Selected this site as we were looking for somewhere open in February and not too far from home for our very first campervan adventure. The site is small but perfectly located in the very centre of Melrose with easy access to pubs and restaurants, and the supermarket. The owners were lovely and extremely helpful. When they learned it was our first time out and with a toddler they bent over backwards to help us settle in and give us the advice we needed. They even russled up an old gas canister we could use to get on the exchange. Storm Ciara meant we didn't get the chance to enjoy the surroundings but we did enjoy the pubs. Recommended for a winter location.

Quality all round

Great site right in the heart of this lovely, upmarket little town. Locals are very friendly and seem to genuinely appreciate having visitors around spending money in their shops and cafes. Can’t fault a thing.

Great winter break site

We regularly visit this site in Spring, Autumn and winter as it is easily accessible from the NE of England. The town is compact and has lots of interesting facilities and places and is a few minutes walk from the sile. There are lots of good walks directly from the site and Abbotsford House is well worth a visit - about a 3/4 mile walk.

Ideal location for walking

Recently returned from a 4 night stay at Melrose. I've been here many times before, and the walks direct from the site or just a short drive away are fantastic. The circular route across the chain bridge, then along the banks of the Tweed is excellent, as is the route out to Newstead and return by the Tweed. Good local shops and a co-op 2 mins from the site. Good friendly staff, and a the usual first class facilities. Yes, you can hear kids playing at the school next door, and the floodlights for the tennis courts outside the site also illuminate an area of the site really brightly. Only suggestion I have is that the staff should be equipped with a means to grit the entire site, and not just around the facilities. The ice on the roads on the site was 'lethal'!
