As we were walking the borders way in very wet weather we were disgusted to find only 2 Showers. Operating one being for disabled same with toilets no hair dryer and no laundry facilities to dry our wet clothes staff very unhelpful the warm welcome is being taken to we're they want to park. Only then to inform you that all filling and emptying facilities are way down other end of site

The site is close to the town so well worth visiting.
The facilities need some attention. Only some of the heating was working and most of the showers and toilets were out of order. The laundry was out of order. None of these problems were clear to me on the website when booking.
It is a level site and in a beautiful area so worth a visit.

We can't describe the welcome as warm. When we arrived we felt that we were disturbing the staff by arriving; but we were shown to our pitch. The hard-standing is so hard that even rock pegs would not penetrate the surface.
The toilets and showers were poorly maintained. In the gents the first morning there were two showers available but one of them did not have a rose so all I got was a deluge of water from the pipe. There was no way of controlling the temperature. The next day this shower and most others were locked leaving only one available shower. There is electric heating in the toilets and showers but only some of this was switched on in October. Anne said that the situation in the ladies was the same with most of the doors permanently locked.
The laundry was out of order as well. It seems that most of the facilities are out of order which is a pity as the site is in a great situation only a short walk from Jedburgh and if it was looked after by friendly caring staff would be a great site. There was no indication of when the poorly stocked reception was open, I did not see a notice or any details in the site leaflet.
We will go back next year in the hope that the facilities will have been cared for and the staff will have learned how to smile. I am also concerned about the electric supply as it seems that all the trip switches are in locked cabinets so it is impossible to reset these in the event of a fault.

I have stayed on many Camping and Caravan club sites and this is by far the worst one. The welcome was non existant, we felt like the poor relations! We were not offered the empty large pictches, which remained empty the following day and happened to be near the wardens pitch. We had to have a narrow pitch and try to park avoiding the mud, same price as the larger ones!
The facilities were basic but very clean.
I would not recommend this site to anyone, unless I didn't like them!
DATE STAYED: September 2012
the site was clean and tidy, the toilet/ shower block was in need of updating. The waste disposal point was quite a distance away from the main pitches. when we booked our pitch through the club site we booked a serviced grass pitch. when we were escorted to our pitch we were allocated a hard stranding pitch with a grass area, we erected our awning on the grass but was told that we were braking the 6 metre rule so the only way we could erect our awning was to use steel pegs, so please note if you are going to this lovely quiet site remember to take your steel pegs as trhe hard standings are HARD.

The site is a short & pleasant walk (about 10 to 15 minutes)from the town centre, and Jedburgh is well worth a visit. The site staff are friendly and the site and facilities are clean. The only down side to the site is the toilet & shower block. It needs updating, I felt like I was back atschool and just come in from a rugby match to the gym shower room.

Site situated in a narrow strip of land between a river and an embankment on the outskirts of the town and within easy walking distance. Some of the pitches are a bit tight. Toilets a bit old fashioned but ok and always kept clean.

Stayed here for 7 nights on a 7 for 5 deal so a really in-expensive break. The site is well situated for walking into town, about 20 minutes along dog friendly riverside walk. There is a excellent cake shop and cafe 2 minutes from site along this walk. The site amenities however do need some upgrading as no heating on in toilets or shower block, laundry out of order and hair-dryer not working in ladies.Otherwise a nice time was spent here and would come back.
this site gone like a cavavan club not camping and caravan club
just to let every one know this site has 4 grass pitches with electric near the tolets ..
the grass pithes is at top end of the site where you come in and the tolets are at the other end of the site ..
it very muddy on there and staff was not freindly
there are a lot of new hard standing for cavavans and campervans.
there should be more tent piches near the tolets then putting cavavan and campervans near them
The welcome we received was friendly and helpful, nothing was any trouble. The site field we were situated in was extremely level. Plenty of space to move the caravan with or without mover.
The shower block, although not modern, was very clean and adequate for all needs. Jedburgh was in easy walking distance. A nice stroll beside the river from campsite to the town.The site is next to a football field which has access through the site. There was no excessive noise whilst we were there. Thanks for a relaxing, peaceful and enjoyable stay.

My wife and I have stayed at this site 4 or 5 times and have always been impressed by the friendly, helpfulness of staff (we even stayed on the last night of the season 2009 - only us on the site and the greeting was just as warm). The site is spotless and the facilities good. The centre of Jedburgh is only a 15 min walk along a lovely waterside pedestrian way. It is steeped in history and has superb shops, cafes, butchers etc etc. Can not recommend a stay here too highly.

Nice site, friendly helpful staff. Peaceful enough to relax and town close enough for supplies. enjoyed the stay and will go back.
DATE STAYED: August 2011
First and last visit I will ever make to this site...loo's were an old football changing room, it was hard to visit on a match day... no shop..no place to find a good shop without a 20 min walk...rates far to high for what it is...a waste of time and money.
SUITABLE FOR: Active break
A very pleasant surprise on entering the site from the main road into Jedburgh. Quite a hidden gem although, as it is separated from the main road by trees and hedgerow, there was quite a bit of noise from the road. Could do with an onsite shop selling the basics at least as it was quite a walk into town on a wet day. Tent pitch was completely flat - perfect, and the general tidiness/cleanliness was first class. Staff were excellent. Definately would go back.

The site was well located and easily accessed. We had a warm welcome and were given a hard pitch when all around us was water-logged, nothing was too much trouble for the "Trevors"!! The toilets and showers were kept immaculate and there were plenty of them. The town is a pleasant 20 minute walk away beside the river on a good path. A good site for dogs except for an occasional rabbit, which proved very frustrating for our dogs.Thank you for a lovely stay.
A very friendly welcome and an excellent location for visiting the Scottish Borders. The toilet block and showers are perhaps a little outdated and could do with modernising but they are spotless clean and 'do what it says on the tin'. It is located on the edge of town off the main road which is quiet at night. There is some noise very occasionally from the industrial units that it is situated behind. Jedburgh is a lovely town - Mary Queen of Scots House and the town Castle & Jail are worth a visit. Jedforest Deer & Farm Park just south of Jedburgh is well worth a visit with lots of animals to see and walks around the surrounding countryside to do. The chicken, haggis & peppercorn sauce pie from AJ Learmonth butcher on the High Street (winner of Best British Savoury Pie 2009) is delicious! Useful to have the sports field next door for energetic children to run around on and let off steam.

We stayed here for one night in July 11. It was a last minute booking, and they were very accommodating. We were told we might have to take a pitch that we couldn't park directly beside, but when we got there we were shown to a different pitch that we could park beside.
Lovely clean facilities, not the most modern but could not fault cleanliness. Quiet site, beside main road but we didn't hear much noise at night. The only thing that made any noise at night was the pigeons cooing!
Would recommend. Seems to be mainly couples and families with older children but would be ok for families. No shop on site but there is a garage nearby. 15 min walk into Jedburgh.
My wife and I travelled to Scotland for the first time this year and used Jedburgh as a 2 night stop over. On arrival at the site we were given a very friendly welcome and even though the rain was coming down like stair rods the warden walked in front of the car and shown us to our pitch. I found the showers and the tiolets were clean and warm. What more does one want. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer. I will certainly be going back to Jedburgh and this time staying a lot longer. Why people moan about this beats me, they've probally nothing else better to do.

We have just enjoyed a 4 night stay over the Easter period, our party consisted of two caravans with 4 adults 3 children and 3 dogs. The site manager and warden gave a warm reception on our arrival and both keep a clean and well presented site. I agree traffic entering the football/rugby pitch could cause concern regarding small children playing, however a sign is posted at the top end warning motorists and whilst there we saw nothing to give concern.
I disagree that the amenitys are out dated they were quite adequate and suited our needs.
I would recommend this site if you wish for the easy life in a peaceful location, there are some fantastic walks around this area from I mile to 8 miles they are well signposted and you can get these as a PDF from the Internet or from the local tourist information, the town is easy walking distance of the campsite via the riverside walk, just a main road to cross at the bridge. Jedburgh Abby and Mary queen of scots house is well worth a visit along with local shops, butchers, bakers etc. Parking in Jedburgh is free and you can also access free wifi.

I had booked this site prior to reading Club Member Mr Tolson's review and after reading it I thought about cancelling my visit. However, I decided against cancelling and thank goodness I did. The site has a good location on the outskirts of Jedburgh with easy access by public transport to the neighbouring towns. The facilities are slightly dated but are spotless and perfectly adequate for a pleasant stay. The wardens could not have been more helpful and the maintenance of the site is excellent. I can imagine that the proximity to the football pitch and their use of the site road for access could annoy some campers but it did not affect my enjoyment. All in all a very pleasant break.
This is a small site just of the main road; about a mile from the site is the town of Jedburgh which is a small town but quite pleasant for an afternoon stroll , Jedburgh castle jail museum is on the town border and is well worth a look and as the bonus of being free ,across the road from the site is a couple of cafÃ©s belonging to the obligortry Edinburgh woolen mill chain, back to the site this is the first site I have been so disappointed with and left early ,How the caravan and camping club can take top rates for this site is beyond me , the facilities are the worst I have seen EVER , the shower and toilet block were out of the Ark and the toilets you had to squeeze in to close the door , and I am not that big ,they were in fact old football changing rooms from the football field next door , which when there was a match on teams and supporters had to access through the campsite , the top part of the campsite was just a tarmac car park , with units on ,and they called these Hard standings , the holiday site managers were lovely and did their utmost to make you welcome , but you canâ€™t change the basics of this site , this is one site the club needs to spend money on or reduce the rates significantly for
