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.

We decided to try the tent out before the season began & chose this site because of the area which we love. On arrival the ease in which we were booked in was great. Our pitch was large & made more private because of the hedges marking the pitches out. Each pitch had a picnic bench and a hardstand for Bbq's. The only down side was the ground which was quite stony in places.

The toilet block & shower facilities were second to none, with the added bonus of having a key fob entry for extra security. They were spotless every time we used them. The dishwashing & laundry facilities were superb.

Everyone on site was so friendly & helpful, & always had a smile on their faces. The bar area was quite busy on a night time, but there was always seating to be had & the service was quick & easy.

The surrounding area has so much to offer, whether you enjoy lying on the beach, or visiting places of interest. (although the weather wasn't right for sunbathing). All the amenities you need are just in the village, including pubs, restaurants, convenience stores etc.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Crosslaw. We tried booking straight up for Aug Bank Hol but unfortunately was told it was booked up already. Try earlier next year I think!

I have stayed here in the past and always rated it highly but I was a bit disappointed this year. Not so much with the facilities but with the people it now attracts.

This seems to be a child friendly campsite and particularly families who let their noisy children run loose at all hours. So bear this is mind. There is in theory silence after 11 pm although not everyone seems to follow this. With electric hookups available, there were several loud TVs too.

The toilets and showers are very good, which is what I like about the site. There is a washing machine and dryer. Tokens from reception. The washing up sinks take forever to dispense enough hot water. There doesn't appear to be a freezer for ice blocks.

The site is well set up for caravans but tents seem more of an afterthought.

The pitches are large with plenty of space for one large or two smaller tents and a car. A small picnic table is provided, which is nice.

There's a cafe bar on site which serves drinks. No shop but the town has a convenience store.

WiFi is available in some areas.

This was our first venture out in our new tourer, so we decided to go somewhere that we had been and enjoyed before with our tent.

When we arrived we were welcomed by a nice young lady at reception, who got us promptly organised.

This is a well kept park located in a quiet village. Eyemouth is a short drive away and Berwick is only 11 miles away.

Last time I left a review I had a rant about the toilets. Although the toilets and showers are of a good standard they could just do with having the floors mopped a little better I feel, as they always look as if mud has been dragged in.

Bearing in mind that Sunday is a busy day for going home I felt a bit uncomfortable to have two females from the cleaning contractors trying to mop a floor at 8 a. M. This morning whilst

There was myself and another two gents trying to get showers and a wash.

Maybe toilets should either be cleaned before 8 am. Or after 11. 30 am. Once the weekenders have all gone home.

A nice and well kept park with some lovely scenery roundabout and a lovely village only 5 mins walk away where you will find a couple of pub's and the local Spar shop. The area is home to some fantastic coastline.

We will return again for another weekend in the near future.

We are just back from a three night Easter weekend stay with our tent at Crosslaw Caravan Park.

The caravan park itself is situated in the small village of Coldingham, which is about five miles outside Eyemouth.

The park itself is very nice and the grounds are very well maintained.

We booked in at reception by a friendly chap but didn't have much explained to us. For e.G. We weren't told how to obtain drinking water or where the bins where situated.

The tent pitch was a very good size although not totally flat. But the picnic bench that we got was welcome and the hedge separating the pitches made it more private.

The toilet block was warm. The toilets and sinks where very clean. However the floor always seemed dirty with outside muck being dragged in, even in the shower area.

The showers were hot, although having to keep pressing the button every ten seconds to maintain a hot water flow was a bit of a pain.

All in all we found the staff very helpful and answered a question when asked.

Just a pity that maybe the toilet block wasn't cleaned more often during the day than the once that we witnessed. This may help the look of the floor.

We found it a very relaxing and quiet venue and we will return again sometime in the future.
