Our first time camping after 35 years was a success due mainly to the choice of campsite. In a lovely area and tents only.

The site itself is mainly in a walled garden and mainly individually mown pitches (small, medium and large). The facilities block had male and female toilet and washing facilities leading to mixed shower block. All hot water was free. Dish washing facilities were provided undercover, and included oven, fridge, kettle, microwave and boot washing.

The running and maintenance of the site was second to none and management were always around to solve any problems or give you advice on the area. There was also shelter in case of inclement weather in the large green house or the communal hub. An excellent site run by people who understand campers. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Possibly the best campsite in the world! The owner and managers think of absolutely everything you would need. Everything is of a high quality. The showers are spacious and immaculate and there was never a queue. The kitchen was useful both for cooking and meeting fellow campers. There were numerous fruit trees and lots of wildlife. It's a great area for walking and cycling. We will definitely return.

Camping doesn`t get much better than this!

The site is in such a beautiful area, rolling green countryside with lovely walks and cycling.

This is a review for the field camping within the walled garden. The site also has camping in the woods.

Park your car in the car park, load up the trolley provided and wheel it to your pitch which will not be far away if staying within the walled garden. The pitches are well marked with lovely wild flowers and grasses bordering all pitches so no chance of anyone encroaching on your pitch. The site is so neat and tidy, grass in lovely condition. Woodchip paths snake around the site to make sure people do not walk over your pitch.

All the facilities are in The Hub which is a large barn structure with huge open fireplace and round wooden tables and benches. There is a small kitchen area with 2 washing up sinks/boot wash and a fridge for your use (only 5ft fridge without freezer so will be full when campsite busy so do not rely on being able to use it at busy times). There is also a microwave and kettle. The washing machine was broken during our stay. There was a rotating washing line thingy also.

There are 3 ladies toilets/4 sinks (presume same for men). 4 showers in unisex shower block all within Hub. Push button powerful and hot showers with small changing area in each one.

We have a 4 year old boy who had a great time. He made friends and enjoyed exploring. I think this site is more suited to younger children (under 10). There is a flat play area about the size of a bowling green and another area in front of the greenhouse. Games are provided in the greenhouse eg. Giant jenga / croquet / boules / giant dominoes for your use. Wi-Fi also available in hub for free and phone / laptop recharging point.

You can use your own fire pit or hire one with logs and BBQ grate for £5. Quite a few midges and horseflies around during our stay so having a smokey fire was a godsend. There was no noise after about 10pm.

We are looking forward to a return visit to this well run family friendly campsite.

One of the best campsites I have ever visited. Amazing location, quiet and green with lots of trees and yet only a short drive from Denholm and Jedburgh. Pitches are very spacious. We loved the huge barn with open fire and tables. Very handy communal kitchen with all appliances, great when the weather is bad. Clean, new toilets and showers. Some of the pitches are within a walled garden with views over a very charming conservatory. Staff very helpful and available. Great idea about safe facilities to light individual fires. Great area for quiet walking, just across the border from Northumberland and not as busy as Peebles.

Just back from a weekend at this fantastic site. It has good sized pitches in a fantastic setting. The kids loved all the games available in the Edwardian greenhouse and the huge play area in front of it. There are also woods behind the campsite which were great for them to play in and build dens or be explorers. As cars aren't allowed onto the site, its really safe for little ones to run about by themselves.

You can hire a fire basket which comes with logs etc and is fantastic for warmth and keeping away the midgies! The hub has picnic benches round a large fire and undercover which is great for when its wet and the small kitchen area has a kettle, cooker and microwave. Though I didn't really see anyone use the cooker and microwave. There is also phone charging and we had full signals and internet on our phones.

The toilets/ showers were always clean and are lovely and warm due to their underfloor heating. The couple who run the site are very friendly and helpful and always willing to give you pointers on things to do. They also want to ensure you are enjoying your stay and if there is anything you need. Initially when booking, I did think it was slightly expensive but having been there, I'd say it was worth every penny.

Just returned from a wonderful site. Pitches are a very good size, owners very helpful. The grounds are beautiful, although alittle boggy. A woodland behind the site with lots of wildlife. Beautiful victorian greenhouse complete with vines, if you want to go and have a quiet read.

The facilities are second to none. Brand new toilets and showers very clean and very warm. A lovely hub area with tables to sit out of the rain. We needn't have bothered taking our stove or cool box as a microwave, cooker and fridge are provided, as long as other campers are considerate and don't hog the facilities, you should have a great time. 10 minutes drive from Hawick where there is a Morrisons, Iceland, BM bargains etc. Fire pits are available for £5. 00 night.

As the site is quite small- not sure how many tents it will take it would benefit from having stricter rules about noise, as it does carry right over the area, and possibly a comment book for guests to leave feedback. Some good walks around the site, also, probably not suitable for dogs although they do take them- they might frighten the hens!
