A peaceful haven in the Scottish Borders.
If you’re wanting to explore the Scottish Borders or on the way to or from Scotland, our Jedburgh Club campsite is the ideal stop off. Located close to the pretty border market town of the same name, this campsite is also perfect for walkers.
Jedburgh is a small campsite – just fifty pitches – catering for all types of camper including backpackers. Tent campers have their own separate tree-lined, level area and there is a recreation field beyond. Facilities include toilets, showers, laundry and a wash up area.
There’s a lovely riverside walk into town, if you’re lucky you may spot some of the local bird and wildlife. Once in Jedburgh you can follow a two-mile historic town trail which takes in some of the local landmarks – Jedburgh Castle Jail, Queen Mary’s House and Bonnie Prince Charlie’s House.
More seasoned walkers will enjoy the campsite’s proximity to St Cuthbert’s Way and the Borders Abbey Way. Jedforest Deer and Farm Park just south of Jedburgh as well as lots of animals to see, has a falconry centre and a wooded adventure playground. Jedburgh is also handy for visiting more border towns including Duns, Kelso, Coldstream and Galashiels.
The 250 square mile Keilder Water and Forest Park is a short drive away, offering a range of activities including walking, cycling, star gazing, sailing and canoeing. Jedburgh is also ideal for anyone wishing to experience the unique common ridings – a spectacular display of horsemanship commemorating the centuries old patrolling of the border country.

The Carters Rest food not to be missed Eyemouth fish delicious. Service excellent
The Railway Tavern is a must do back in time experience with great locals.
Dogs total heaven with park facilities.
Would recommend for passing through but not for longer stay. Facilities. OK if you liked school showers, but kept clean
Wardens friendly but site let down by facilities.
Would recommend for position only

Jedburgh is well worth a visit and though the site facilities are a bit dated, they were not any the less functional. The national company shops opposite the entrance catered for coach parties and was very dated and not worth the visit.

We had passed by many times on our trips to Scotland but had not stayed at the site - though we had used the garage across the road for diesel and also the retail outlets. We decided to stay for a couple of nights and were very glad we did. The welcome was warm and staff provided a map and were informative about the various attractions including the Castle Museum and Prison and Mary Queen of Scots House, both of which are free admission but appreciate donations. The 50p audio guide at the Prison is well worth the money too. The abbey is impressive but there is an admission charge.
The riverside walk in to town recommended by the site staff is much more pleasant than going a long the main road would be and it brings you out at the bottom of the High Street, at the top of which the Simply Scottish coffee shop had outdoor seating and brought fresh water for the dogs before we had even sat down! There were also some places near the Abbey that had outdoor seating too.
Belters Bar allows dogs in and does food (mainly different sorts of burgers or steak) and is at the bottom of Castlegate.
Butcher on the High Street does nice pies and we bought a haggis which is in the freezer for later.
We were down the bottom of the site near the football pitch and it certainly felt more open and pleasanter than some of the pitches along the road which looked close together and narrow. Facilities much as described by others: rather outdated but kept clean and the water was nice and hot in the showers. Would we stay again? - very possibly.

Totally agree with the previous comments. Whilst the lady was most welcoming,the place was in desperate need of a refurbishment that would bring it at least into the present day. The managers had, it seemed, made a great job with what they have been given but having clean loos is not enough I am afraid as that should be a given. We spent all night sweeping out the van as every time we went out to walk the dog or nip to the loo we were bringing in gravel and dust. This was because the pitches needed regrading...awful...would recommend Jedburgh but not this site I am afraid, glad we only booked 1 night as we would have asked for our money back. The field at the side was good for running our dogs but the site is altogether very disappointing. There is a world of difference between "secluded" and "depressing",
