Reviewer: Kevthewev 1 review from this member

Site is located on the outskirts of Coldingham and is mainly full of static caravans with the tourers and tents tucked away in a corner field next to the main road. This of course means that you are subject to a lot of road noise as vehicles are either slowing down or speeding up depending upon if they are leaving or entering the village. The reception is within the clubhouse, which is a sizeable, relatively modern building. The staff were all friendly and we were quickly settled onto our pitch. It wasn't level but that was easily sorted, it is fully serviced but the grey waste is emptied from the caravan into a pipe coming out of the ground so make sure you have a long enough, flexible pipe to shove down it!

Our pitch was very close to the play area which is roughly in the middle of the field, this is also where the rubbish bins are kept. Unfortunately this was a magnet for children of all ages and the noise was ridiculous going on until 11pm most nights, on top of all this one of the swings was badly in need of some grease as it squeaked on every ascent/descent.

The shower block was a couple of minutes walk away and was generally kept clean however one morning in the mens section someone had locked one shower cubicle from the outside and had emptied what looked like half a beach full of sand in the other and the water drain cover was broken too with all the sharp pieces exposed. I complained but was told that it was quite common for the children to use the showers as a play area at night when they were less frequented.

This isn't a quiet, peaceful site so if that is what you are after look elsewhere, but it is in a great area, just a shame that the owners let minor infringements spoil an otherwise good park.

We have just visited this site, but must say that the road noise was too much to stay for the week. The area is very pleasant and worth the visit but this is more a site for caravans as the noise when they leave the site bar is unavoidable in a tent but not with the insulation of a caravan.

The facilities were clean and tidy but the early hours which they were cleaned was obtrusive as this happened between 7. 00 and 8. 30 am every morning.

Although the weather wasn't good at the beginning of our stay the site was quite pleasant. As we had a fully serviced pitch we used the showers in our caravan as there were only two showers in the facilities. The facilities were clean and tidy. There is a club house where you could go for a drink and entertainment

A short walk from the site took you into the village where there were two pubs, a shop and a bus stop where you could catch a bus to Berwick and local villages. A beach was about 1 mile away and there are coastal walks into Eyemouth or over to St Abbs Head and beyond.

We chose to stay at the Crosslaw Caravan park, and we're so glad we did. The park is well maintained, with a good sized pitch for our caravan, complete with picnic bench which was a bonus. The toilet facilities were clean and kept locked, but you are given a keyfob to use the toilet block, which in my opinion is a great idea, keeping the facilities for guests to a good standard.

The clubhouse is very welcoming, nice and airy with bar and a pool table and darts area. There is also a small soft play section for the younger children, great for young families. There is plenty to do in the village and St Abbs beach a very short drive or a nice walk away. All in all a really nice relaxing break, and I look forward to coming back again very soon.

Stayed for 2 nights on a large pitch with picnic table and slab for bbq with hedges giving some shelter and privacy. The tent pitches had electrics which we didn't use. Key fob entry into showers and toilets which were exceptionally clean all day long. Plenty of hot water and plenty of hooks in shower cubicle to hang clothes along with a shower tidy to put your shower gel etc in. Indoor wash up area and laundry were very good and clean. All in all a nice site and friendly people. 10. 25 per person per night in September seems quite high but by judging by the loads of statics on well manicured grass it may be that they don't really want tents on site. Beach close by and shops pubs etc close. St Abbs fishing village is well worth a visit and the food in the old school house is fantastic.

Checked in with no problems and was directed to an allocated serviced pitch. I was on pitch 25 which backed onto static caravans (hidden by hedges) and faced the tent pitches. Access to the toilets/showers is via a main door which then leads to both male and female separate facilities. Both were clean at all times, there didn't appear to be any time that the toilets closed. There is a small play park and abar on site but I didn't use it. A few of kids and dogs on site but after about 9 it was pretty quiet.

The local beach isn't too far to walk but I would recommend taking the car as it is uphill all the way back which is fine but with all your gear it may be tricky. The beach is lovely, went there 3 times. There are public toilets, an outside shower, a small shop selling ice cream and some snacks and lifeguards on duty until 6pm. There are lovely coastal walks from the beach, we went to St Abbs, a small fishing village just over the hill. We also visited the Holy Island which was about a 40 minute drive away.

A couple of points to note

The road between the pitches was wide enough to drive through with the caravan but was tight to reverse onto if the pitch directly across has a tent pitched.

Each pair of touring pitches has the electric and water point between the two pitches on a shared bollard. It was fine for me as the water was the right side for my caravan, but if your caravan is the other one unless you have a very long hose it may not connect to your water butt.

If you don't have the pipework for the pitch's draining point and use your waste container instead a point to note is that drain for the waste water containers is at waist height which proves very difficult to lift if it is full.

Access to and from th touring field is through the statics on a single track road which is fine if you are off for 12 and no one arrives before then. As I was about to leave at 11:30 a caravan arrived on site, glad I didn't meet it on the road.

I liked this site and am thinking about returning next summer. The points I've raised are not complaints just things to be aware off.
