We turned up without a booking, no problems lovely lady in reception had us booked in and on a pitch in minutes.

Its a short 10-15 minute walk into the town and the outlet village. Further onto the original Blacksmiths, probably another 20-30 minutes walk. Nearer the campsite there is a few shops, small supermarket, takeaways etc - all about 5 minutes walk.

The campsite itself is well kept, seemed very secure, barrier key used during the late evening and night for which you pay a £5 deposit. The site is close to the road but we weren't bothered by road noise at all.

The site has free wifi, although they said a basic service we thought it was really good signal.

There is plenty to do in the area in terns of the borders and the coast. For us it was a one night stop heading North but would use the site again if we were in the area for longer.

September is still high season so £21. 50 per night for 2 adults with ehu, showers 20p extra for several minutes.

We decided to visit Gretna on the way to Hadrian's Wall and so glad we did. The tourist information suggested this caravan park and what a lovely park it was. Really quaint, which is what we like, the owner was really friendly and helpful and the toilets/showers were immaculate. We did not use the showers as we have our own in the motorhome. We were able to walk the dogs offsite which was fine and the park was close enough in walking distance to the grocery store and takeaway. I would recommend this park to anyone thinking of visiting Gretna.

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.
