Located just a few minutes walk from Gretna so ideal for proximity to registry office if you are marrying in the area. Shops and take aways also close by and Gretna Inn about 10-15 minutes walk. The Gretna Inn is dog friendly and food very good with friendly staff. The site is adequate with good toilet/shower facilities (showers 20p) and quiet considering location. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and walked off site - this is strictly enforced. Staff did advise of a location we could take our dog to for walking off the lead (about 10 mins walk away) otherwise not really a good area for dog walking.

We booked here as we visit Gretna every year for our anniversary, and this is our 1st year with our caravan. We had a service pitch which was fantastic the site is lovely and clean and friendly there is plenty of birds and rabbits to see, it was just so nice to be able to take out 2 westies to there home countries, we went to the Gretna inn pub at the end of the road it is about 20 minute walk and dog friendly we had some lovely meals highly recommend the haggis topped steak, we visited the blacksmith shop where we got married and there was lots of weddings taking place Gretna is a lovely place to visit and we will be back to braids next year 😀

We used this site as a stop over on the way home. It's easy to find, £17. 00 per night £5. 00 deposit for the security gate & toilet key. Reception was very nice clearly explained where everything was & also offered discount vouchers for eating out. Toilets were clean, 20p for using the shower the ladies hair dryer was out of order. Good area for washing dishes. There are warnings about over loading the electric but if your sensible (not plugging everything in at once) then it works fine.

Gretna shopping outlet is a 10 minute walk from site & plenty of places to eat. We used The Gables Hotel right next to the site (10% discount voucher obtained from reception) food was good & good price.

We couldn't fault this site for a stop over it's great & will hopefully use it again.

Probably not suitable for kids as no playpark.

Stopped overnight on our Scotland tour. Showers good and clean, 20p in meter allows plenty of time. Pitches a little small but adequate. Reception very helpful. Gretna 10 minute walk, and Gretna Green about 3 mile away. Wouldn't stay here for long as little to see, but would certainly overnight again.

We spent one night on this very convenient site specifically to visit The Devil’s Porridge exhibition in nearby Eastriggs. We would not class Braids as a holiday destination in itself, although several caravans appeared to be there for the season, but as a functional site, useful for activities in the area or as a stopover in transit to elsewhere.

Having said that, Braids provided everything we look for in a good site: an electrical connection, very clean toilets, showers and washing-up facilities, quietness and pleasant staff.

Thoughtful touches included site and local information leaflets in English, French, German, Dutch and Italian in addition to a range of brochures from nearby attractions.

Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed here for one night in order to have quick access to the M6 on the way home. It is within walking distance of the town centre and is within a residential area.

The main pro for this site is its shower block facilities (although showers were 20p). They were very clean, modern and well maintained. Each cubicle had its own sink area which gave you privacy, and there were ample surfaces and mirrors.

The pitches were fairly close together but this is a town, not a country campsite. Lots of electricity points and good washing up area.
