Stayed here for three nights in mid August 2015. Wish we had booked longer. It is in a secluded located next to Rosslyn Chapel - as in The Da Vinci Code with Tom Hanks. It is at the end of a quiet lane yet only 2 minutes from Roslin itself.

The site is small and secluded and green and peaceful. We arrived an hour before the 2pm arrival time and no one was in reception. A quick call to the mobile number and the owners arrived with no issues about us arriving early.

The owners are very pleasant and the site is well kept. There was a problem with the showers when we were there but only at peak times. Never caused us a problem. They were modern and very spacious and very clean.

The bus is only 3 minutes away and its 1. 50 each way to edinburgh and 70p for kids. Excellent value.

When I booked I didn't realise the Fringe and the Military Tattoo was on. WOW. What a bonus. Edinburgh was buzzing.

Behind the site is a country park to walk the dogs or to exercise. It has a very clean brook at the bottom and the dog loved it.

The village has a co op with a cash machine and a post office. The one and only pub (The originak Rosslyn Inn) is superb. Great bar and great restaurant with excellent priced quality food. I had the home made burger, very tasty 10. 95.

I just wish we had booked this site for longer. Great site, great location. Shhhhhhh. Keep it a secret.

We have stayed here for three nights every August for the last three years. The site gets better and better. Really friendly owners get the balance right between easy going and properly managed. Always feel safe and yet relaxed.

Toilet blocks recently upgraded and look great. Loads of hot water and spacious showers. The only draw back is that during the Edinburgh Festival when the site is full there is often a small queue for showers. We used our own one day but that wasn't a problem.

The site was completely full when we were there but the atmosphere was great and still quiet. Some enormous RVs were on the site so clearly they can manage big units.

Fantastic for access to Edinburgh and excellent information given on arrival with plenty of leaflets in the office.

No playground but our granddaughter came to visit us and enjoyed playing on the grass and watching the comings and goings on site. Good playground in Roslin itself.

If you haven't seen the famous Roslin Chapel this site is right next door and a must see.

First visit to this site during the Bank Holiday weekend and certainly not the last. This is a wee cracker of a caravan park, where you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the surroundings. The pitches are well laid out and the toilet facilities are immaculate. Pam the owner was very welcoming and helpful.

The site was popular with motor-home owners from Europe as well as the natives, probably visiting Roslin Chapel. Well worth a viewing. As stated previously, the local hotel serves delicious grub and opposite you can enjoy a breakfast roll at Dolly's Tea Room.

As to negatives, I cannot think of any, except the lack of play facilities for children. Looking forward to our next visit.

If you want somewhere near Edinburgh this is perfect. The site is only a few hundred metres from the amazing Roslin chapel which is well worth a visit. The site sits in a favoured position in a small gentle valley with trees around and, while being open, there is also good protection from the wind. The facilities are first class and the owners are simply delightful. We would love to go again.

Lovely quiet site, owner very helpful. Facility block has been upgraded over the winter months and is really nice. A new bus service into Edinburgh has started. The 37 now stops in the village every half hour and costs 1. 50 per journey per person. A day rover ticket is also available at 3. 50 pp. The 37 bus runs all day & all night so if you want to take in a show in Edinburgh you can still get a bus back to Roslin. The night bus fee is 3. 50pp. As well as the pub in the village there is also a British Legion club that makes people most welcome & the beers cheaper than the pub.

Took advantage of three for two night stay, 40 for three nights.

Well set out park, handy for electrics and water points. Good hard standing pitches with plenty of space between each pitch.

Shower block is a bit cold and looks like school shower block, but is functional and plenty of hot water gents showers.

Wash up area good for dishes etc, again plenty hot water.

Host was very good and friendly on arrival and every time met.

Plenty of wildlife and walks around the site, history a plenty to see. Dogs didn't realise they could walk so far by the end of the break.

Over all would recommend the site due to location and amount to see and do around it.

Peaceful at our visit apart from one workman using site with van to go to work at seven am and slamming van door etc.

But apart from that would use again.
