Just lovely!

We really enjoyed our recent 5 night stay at this lovely CL site, which is perfectly situated for exploring the pretty little town of Melrose and the beautiful countryside around it. Others have mentioned road noise but we hardly noticed anything...all we could hear most of the time were the birds singing and the sheep in the neighbouring fields. We stayed on one of the two level grass pitches at the bottom of the site...it’s a little way up the hill to take/collect water and waste, but the trade off was the beautiful outlook and feeling of peace and tranquillity. Sadly we didn’t get to meet Pam, the owner, as she was shielding due to Covid, but she does an excellent job of maintaining this brilliant little site, which is a real credit to the CL network.

Smashing CL

Lovely tidy organised CL. Very friendly owner. Just outside Melrose with lots of places to visit. Two hard and three grass pitches, grass mown and collected. Good dog walk from site. Very peaceful. Just a short 3 night stay this time as on our way up to the Highlands. Highly recommended.

Excellent Base For Exploring the Borders

Having dogs, we usually base our choice of CLs on those which have a decent dog walk direct from site. This was ideal in that there is a farm track right next to the site which was rarely used by vehicles so was great for walking the dogs. After a shortish distance the track turned into a nice grassy track by which you could walk to a neighbouring village. We like visiting historic houses and castles so this was perfect being on the Big Houses Trail which were ideally spread around the site so there wasn't too much driving involved. To name a few within easy reach: Floors Castle, Manderston House, Paxton House, Mellerstain House, Bowhill House, Traquair House and Abbotsford House and Estate. All the places welcomed dogs on the estate trails and gardens plus they all had nice cafes for lunch. Visited all the abbeys; Kelso, Dryburgh, Melrose and Jedburgh which also all allow dogs in the grounds and ruins. Leaderfoot Viaduct was interesting and there was a nice walk along the River Tweed. Melrose was a lovely town with a couple of small National Trust Gardens and had a decent Co-Op. Kelso was nice and had a large Sainsburys where we went to buy some shorts as it was so sunny and hot whilst we were there. The owner is very friendly and lent us some walking books which came in very handy as there are so many lovely places to walk in the vicinity. The site is very well kept and had lovely views over farm land. We had the pitch nearest the road so with the windows open you could hear vehicles but it was not intrusive and only busy during commuting times. We would certainly recommend the site and will certainly be going back.

A very Lovely CL

Just spent 6 nights here when the lovely weather arrived in early March 2019. Owner very helpful and site very tidy. With usual facilities clean tidy and easy to use. Lots to do from site, nice walks and plenty of wildlife nearby. Good area to cycle from with a choice of routes from short to all day rides. Eildon hills nearby and very make a very pleasant to walk. Will visit again soon.

What a super CL!

We've just had yet another wonderful few days at Springlee and, having holidayed there for a number of years, we just can't recommend this site highly enough. It is so peaceful there , the views are wonderful (the Eildon hills, Smailholm Tower, rolling countryside, sheep munching away in adjacent fields). There are many local and further-afield attractions (it's just a mile or two from the A68) and we just love the early morning and evening sunshine (ok, you may not see that every day). The site is always well maintained (I wish I could keep our hedges as neat!) and, on top of all the above, Pam, the owner is so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Another reviewer mentioned some traffic noise - there is but, in our experience, it is short-lived and never detracts from our enjoyment. You just can't go wrong at Springlee - give it a try.

What a Gem of a CL

What a Gem of a CL. Mrs Spink (Pam) who runs this CL on a working farm makes you feel like a friend not a 'camper'. It is situated in the country less than 4 mls off the A68 and the scenery is brill, rolling countryside that you can see for miles, but handy enough for touring all the local towns like Melrose, Jedburgh, Galashiels, Selkirk and also being just a hour1/4 from E/burgh it couldn't be handier, or if you just wanted to 'chill'out the site is great for that too. This is great CL and the very friendly welcome & interest Mrs Spink shows to all her guests is very genuine. We have no hesitation in recommending this site to everyone and will return again. Thank you for all your help during our stay, it is greatly appreciated. Bob & Evelyn Stuart Aberdeen

Extended stay.

Lovely peaceful site with magnificent views. Warm welcome from owner with lots of advice on walks etc. We had to extend our stay due a brake problem on the caravan, Pam was very understanding and her husband most helpful in resolving the problem. The extended stay to be honest was a blessing in as much that it gave us the opportunity to explore the border area more thoroughly. Highly recommended.

Lovely site in lovely area

We had a warm welcome and were provided with walking ideas, which was really helpful. The site is well-maintained , with good quality water, waste water and chemical disposal facilities. We had a problem on the morning we were leaving, having had heavy rain the evening before, but were really pleased and relieved to be quickly 'rescued' and towed off our grass pitch. The views are beautiful and the surrounding area is lovely - plenty to see and do. A highly recommended site with super-friendly owners.

Good and convenient

Springlee is easy to find off the main road and there are plenty of great walks that can be done from the site. The owner, Pam, was really helpful and loaned us some walking guide books of the area during our stay. This is a great base to explore the Borders region with plenty to see (we have stayed in this area before). There is some road noise but mostly during the day but this doesn't detract from this lovely site.
