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.

Jedburgh is a good centre for exploring the Scottish Borders, but investment by the club in upgrading the toilet facilities is long overdue.
The public access road through the site will always be headache for those managing the site, but there is little that can be done to lesson the impact caused by cars travelling through the site on their way to the football and rugby pitches.
- Location: Town
- Suitable For: Older couples
Positive: A most convenient site for touring the Borders e.g. Kelso, Hawick etc.
Very helpful, polite staff who interact well with campers.
Less Positive: A public road runs through the site to sports fields which means non-camper traffic travelling through the site.
To have a larger pitch you have book use of an awning but don't have to actually erect one during your stay.
Overall: Clean and convenient but not particularly peaceful or scenic.

This was our second time away with our caravan so we are still learning the ropes.
This was a easy site to find with open, unrestricted access to both the entrance and the pitches. We had a lovely warm greeting from Adrian and Mary, who on finding that we were new to caravanning, could not have been more helpful. Adrian even gave me a lesson on how to reverse with the caravan as I had never done it before.
They both gave us good, sound advice on setting up and regularly popped past to make sure we were alright and to see if we needed help with anything.
We had reasonable weather for the majority of our trip, although the day before leaving it rained hard all day so our awning was soaking wet. On mentioning this to Adrian and Mary, we were informed that the next days weather was forecast to be warm and bright so we were told not to hurry off the site unless we needed to and to let the awning dry as they knew from our discussion that we had no way to easily dry it when we got home.
This we thought was above and beyond what would be expected from the club and very thoughtful of the management team.
The facilities, although dated were immaculate. My only suggestion could be the addition of a privacy booth for those that do not like to get washed in front of others.
If I had to pick a fault with this site, and this really is nit picking....... It would be the public right of way which is the driveway through the site which leads to the local rugby and football club but this really isn't a problem as the people using it were respectful and considerate.
We will be recommending this site to others and will use this site frequently.
