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 location, lovely site

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site
We stayed here twice to break up journeys to Edinburgh. Lovely welcome from site staff on both occasions. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Site itself is nice and quiet however there is a school and sports field nearby. This site is in a lovely location within easy walk of Melrose Town centre with a small number of restaurants and bars which makes this a great all year round site. Well worth a visit and have already booked to go back there next month.

Highly recommended.

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site
We had a wonderful stay here for 21 nights, late September/October. Upon our arrival, we had a lovely welcome from Maggie, who with her husband, work very hard to keep the site and it’s facilities in excellent order. The site is within the town of Melrose, which has a Co-op at the entrance to the site, and amongst other shops, an excellent butcher, and an excellent bakery. Melrose sits in a beautiful area with other lovely towns, and other interesting attractions nearby. Highly recommended.

One of my favourite sites

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site
Stayed there in October 21 for 5 nights. As usual, really nice and friendly wardens and the site is maintained impeccably. Spotless facilities which were never really busy despite the site being full when I stayed. A co-op on the doorstep, and Melrose has a cracking traditional High St with some great shops, certainly enough variety for anyone. On the friday, there was even a senior game on at the Rugby ground across the road which can be watched from the pavement. Great walking (with the dogs in my case) direct from the site along the Tweed or up the nearby Eildon Hills. Just a fantastic place to stay.

Excellent site

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site
We stayed at this site for three nights at the end of a tour of Scotland. The site was very busy with few spare pitches but we were very happy with the one we chose. Warm welcome from one of the friendly wardens, spotless facilities. Good area for walking and places of interest nearby. We hope to return.

Always excellent

Melrose Gibson Park Caravan Club Site
9 day stay at the beginning of September. Extremely welcoming and friendly wardens. Site is always busy, and rarely not full, so early booking recommended. Facilities are always immaculate. Loads of walks from the site, and we highly recommend a trip to the local charity shop on the left just down from the site, which stocks a book on local walks from Melrose (extracts can be seen in the info room). This has some lovely walks along the Tweed or up into the Eldon Hills. As everyone has said, the site is on the edge of the town, opposite the historic rugby club. The are plenty of pubs and eateries, but the Kings stood out for us this trip, being under new ownership since our last visit. Very friendly with excellent beer and food. The only slight annoyance was that balls were frequently kicked over the hedge from the adjacent school field, on occasion bouncing off outfits. We are not talking beachballs here, and the Club should perhaps negotiate with the school to erect netting along the hedge to prevent this. During our stay it was pretty much a daily occurrence. There is also some inevitable noise at playtimes and PE sessions, plus some noise from the adjacent recycling bins in the car park. Overall however, this is always a very good site, and we will be returning.
