Lovely site

Well-run site in a great location. Walks direct from the site. Great for dogs. Good local shops in the village (ie walking distance). Drove up to Hawick which is a friendly small town with a lovely park and museum.

Excellent......

Stayed on site end of June. Site well situated, with plenty to see and do. Good birdwatching ( Hen Harriers regularly seen on nearby Langholme Moor ). Scenery amazing. Site kept in immaculate condition by helpful and friendly site staff. Toilet blocks with individual cubicles kept spotless. Horse riding fairly close by, recommended by the site staff, and was round the forest. Village facilities good, with small Spar, excellent butchers ( opens at 06:00hrs!! ) and choice of hotels. Fuel ( petrol & diesel ) available in the village at reasonable prices. Beware the black cat who will be in your car / van given half a chance - it nearly got a lift to Kent on the day we left !! Would not hesitate to recommend the site, although may be a little quiet for those with younger members of the family

A fabulous year round site

Visited here in mid January 2019. The site is in a lovely village, with a couple of hotels, shops, and an excellent butcher.The Community has recently added fuel pumps and an electric charging point. The site has all hard standing pitches with several service points. The toilet and shower blocks are very clean and warm ( essential during the winter). The welcome is very friendly and the wardens will always go out of their way to help . The site is peaceful, with some owls at night. This is a great place for wildlife. There are Hen Harriers on Langholm Moor (only a few miles away); deer and foxes in the forests; badgers can be seen at a hide in the forest; wild goats on the Langholm Moor, and of course the delightful owls on the site. For the outdoor lovers this site has great walks in the hills and forests. The area is a Mecca for mountain biking, part of the 7 Stanes network. Road cycling also has several great routes. For star gazers it is superb, as this is in a Dark Skies area, and only a 30 minute drive to the Observatory at Kielder. Highly recommended.

Great location for exploring the Borders anytime of the year

Helpful site manager, good all weather access and facilities, including for wheelchair user. Centrally situated in the village, but very quiet and peaceful. Great range of local walks straight out of the site. All amenities available within village (including 24/7 self-service fuel station); The Grapes Hotel is especially friendly, welcomes dogs, and serves great food. We had one night of snow/ice, but the main roads are well gritted and remained passable with care, even in our rig, which has very little traction. It's such a nice village, being snowed in would be no hardship anyway! Well placed for exploring the Borders - we managed Hadrian's Wall, the Solway Coast & Kielder Forest in the three days we were there, and look forward to going back. Will take mountain bikes and canoes next time too - loads to do if you like the great outdoors.

Lovely site

We stayed at Lidalia for nights in July. It is really well cared for and the owners seem to be constantly busy keeping it this way. In the ladies there are 4 individual large bathrooms with excellent showers, sink and loo. These were a lovely treat after a long day out walking. You can walk directly from the back of the site into the woods where it is perfect for dogs to run off lead which ours loved. There are a couple of pubs in Newcastleton and a few shops. We bought the small brochure from reception with local walks in which was handy and explored some beautiful areas. ///

Very Friendly SIte

We stayed here for 5 nights using it as a base for a motorcycling holiday. The site and facilities are excellent, Newcastleton village is a 2 minute walk away and there are shops and a good pub for food. Pitches are spacious and flat with ample service points for motorhomes. Site staff are very welcoming and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definitely be going back there.

A little piece of heaven.

We have just had a 3 night stay at Lidalia on our way up to Berwick on Tweed and enjoyed it so much we called in for another night on our way home, booking in was a pleasure and we were given a great choice of pitches, toilets and showers plus waste etc are top class, hosts are very welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble, if you like peace and quiet and watching the rabbits and pheasants etc you will not be disappointed here, we can recommend the Grapes pub for excellent reasonable priced food etc, also the Olive tree café just further on from pubs, all within easy flat walking distance, will definitely be going back in the not too distant future.

Autumn stay

We called here for a couple of nights in July on our way home from Skye and were so impressed we promised to return. The site is tucked in the corner of a pleasant village with enough facilities to keep the cupboards and fridge well stocked. The site itself is clean and tidy and the washrooms spacious and clean. Everyone is friendly and helpful on the site and in the village.Some great walks direct from the site which suits our 3 dogs. We didn't try the pub even though it is dog friendly its pushing it with 3 large dogs. Lots of history in the village and surrounding area with tower houses, castles and ruins. These last 6 day passed too quickly and still didn't get to see all so looks like we will be back. Can't wait.

Unfortunate incident ruined our stay!

Lovely well kept site in a good location on outskirts of village which has butchers, shops, pubs and cafes. Great area for cycling and walking. Site staff were very friendly and helpful. Toilets/showers were very spacious and clean. Sadly we were pitched adjacent to some social housing that backs on to this site and one evening someone decided to shoot an air rifle over the caravan site and our caravan was damaged! Police were called and turned up the following day! We were unfortunate but because of this distressing occurrence, we would never visit again - you could try asking for a pitch on the opposite side of the site.

Fabulous find and will visit again.

We booked this site when we couldn't get our favoured site and we were so glad we did. The access roads were fine, the welcome was warm and the pitches are all flat and a good size. We ended up on a fully serviced pitch and for a 3 night stay cost us about £65 which we thought was extremely good value. The toilet/shower facilities were spotless every day (with a hand drier that actually blew hot air fast) and the site is really well kept. Lidalia is set in a nice picturesque location surrounded by woods which were great for busy dogs. On one side there is the rear fences of houses but this did not distract from our stay at all. The worst thing about this site was the birds calling out from daybreak (noisy crows) but will not put us off from staying again. The site is in close walking distance to local village shops and pubs. We visited 'The Grapes' pub which is dog friendly and had some very nice food at a reasonable price. It may not have a play park for kids or anything like that but it is peaceful and has some great dog walks direct from the site and a river a short distance if the dogs like a swim. We didn't have any TV reception from our caravan ariel so we were loaned an ariel by our hosts free of charge. We were a bit disappointed that we had to leave and will definitely return.
