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 savings on days out

I have read all the good reviews for this site and it certainly is extremely convenient for the town centre and the supermarket, but it very much depends on where you are on site! We have paid the same price as others with awnings, but have had to accept a pitch on tarmac which backs on to a car park with a bottle bank. We can only assume that Melrose residents are keen recyclers, but even better drinkers. The noise from parents parking in the carpark just over the fence, banging doors, children shouting from 8am needs to be highlighted . In short…do book a pitch with awning space. We weren’t able to,despite booking months ago. We can’t comment on the wardens as we haven’t seen them.
