Why stay here ...

LOW 10% refundable deposit & FREE cancellations*

Melrose Gibson Park Club Campsite 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 Campsite - 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.

Excellent Site

Melrose Gibson Park Club Campsite
Well located site midway between Edinburgh and Newcastle in lovely borders town. 100 yards to bustling High Street with cafes, pubs, eateries in abundance. 2 small but well stocked supermarkets in easy walking distance. Lots of walks from site with excellent walking guide to purchase available from site shop. Very dog friendly locality, feels very welcoming. One of our favourite sites.

Not reviewed in a long time.

Melrose Gibson Park Club Campsite
This is a site that we use a lot, mostly at weekends because it only takes about an hour for us to get there. We love it here being right in the town centre you have everything you need at hand, there are plenty of places to eat and have a drink if that's what you like. You have a supermarket right on your doorstep to get provisions. There are lots of good walks whatever direction you go in when you leave the site. Our last weekend for this year was 2nd/3rd of December, the wardens on were Mark & Sam who were very friendly/chatty. Mark had his work cut out trying to keep the water pipes flowing as had frozen up due to low temperatures. We have always found the wardens approachable which ever ones have been on duty, the permanent or relief.

This is a yearly visit for us which we have done for seven years except for covid. We park up and don't really have to move again. Everything you need is close by. The butchers and bakers are excellent, dog friendly pub and a co-op just a short walk from the site. Great walks to the River Tweed for the dog and our daily exercise. The site as people have already commented about the toilet block needs a little refurbishing but it is clean. The Wardens Mark and Sam are really nice and friendly. Mark had his work cut out with the weather conditions. He constantly battled to keep the service areas running, keeping the site gritted and he did it all with a smile. I would definitely recommend this site.

First trip to the Scottish Borders

Melrose Gibson Park Club Campsite
My stay at this site was 3 nights from the 3/10/23, as part of a Roadtrip I’m doing with my dogs. I chose the site because of how it fitted into the road trip but must confess wasn’t expecting a great deal due to many of the negative points throughout lots of reviews. Yes there is noise from the school but only during “playtimes” and not really a problem to me. I also would not consider this as a family site either. The other negative that always comes up is the facilities block and I would certainly agree. They are kept as clean as possible but they are no better than, at best, a 3 star facility. Screws and many fitments missing, the overall look and feel is “very tired”. An example, in the men’s facilities there are 2 handbasins to use after visiting the toilet - they are so small you cannot actually wash your hands in them! The facilities block is well beyond the need for a total refurbishment, however there in lies the Clubs problem. Clearly this is a popular year round site and to do such a refurb may need the site closed for many months - financially does the Club want to “take the hit” of lost revenue? However, the positives. Melrose is a lovely Border town with a variety of coffee shops and eating establishments as well as other shops. Lovely Abbey with lots of significant Scottish History within. A fabulous, practically flat, circular walk incorporating the glorious River Tweed. You can also extend the walk into going either side of the River for as far as you wish. A well sized Co-op store practically at the entrance to the site. Also a “big up” to the girls who run “Coffee Inc” from a converted horsebox at the entrance to Melrose RFC, serving freshly brewed coffee and some homemade “treats”, ideal at the end of your walk 👍
