My husband I arrived on Friday and are staying until Monday. We have found the park wonderful. Nice toilet and shower block, with lovely large cubicles and kept to high standards, albeit the light must be on a timer and goes out after a short period. Scotties, Crails and Crofters Bar are all clean and tidy and excellent service. Mallard touring park, where our caravan is parked is lovely and tidy and the pitch we are in, number 23, is ideal for a walk to Coldingham Bay. We will definitely return to this delightful park and it's well worth a visit.
Stayed on this site for 2 nights (Friday Saturday) the site was very quiet and we could select our own pitch. The site is located just outside a small village which has 2 pubs a spar and an antique shop, the beach is also close to the site about a ten minute walk and have to say is very clean. The site is well kept and the locals who we met in the bar were very friendly. The only down side was that the shower room was cold so it was a case of in and out within a flash other wise overall a pleasant trip.
You will see that I previously submitted a review of Scoutscroft in 2010. Albeit I gave the site an average assessment, the locality drew me back and I pitched my caravan there all season 2011. My overall opinion of the site has not changed dramatically but I did enjoy staying there and will be doing so again this season.
However, I can now give some more opinion of other aspects of the site and area.
The pitches are big, mostly level but desperately lack a mains water supply. I believe there is no intention to change this in the foreseeable future.
Creels Restaurant on the site offers good value, tasty meals in pleasant surroundings. The on-site chippy was excellent early in the season but declined by the end. Two fish in your supper reduced to only one and the taste and quality became poor too. Do not be tempted to try Mackays in Eyemouth for a fish supper. Awful!
Scoutscroft staff continue to be helpful and courteous.
Locally, there is now a nice gallery in Coldingham and the New Inn is highly recommended for dinner, although does not match Creels for value.
The Indian restaurant in Eyemouth serves some interesting and unique dishes.
If you are a golfer, you must play a round at Eyemouth. A stunningly located links course with an amazing 6th hole played over the ocean!
Berwick Upon Tweed is a nice town with all the shops you could hope for (Marks & Spencer Food, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda, Co-op, WH Smith, B&Q, Halfords, etc). As I said in my last review, the Cannon chippy is the best.
The winner in this area is Coldingham Bay. Lovely sands, a surfers paradise and a reasonable little cafe (when it can be bothered to open!).
To conclude, Scoutscroft has retained my business for another season but only due to its locality. I still believe it could do so much better but, as I thoroughly enjoyed last season, I have given it an additional star in this review.
Just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday at Scoutscoft. We were not supposed to be there but a hitch in our holiday plans meant that we spent time here and I am very glad we did.
All staff on site are very friendly and very helpful. Touring pitches are electric hook up only, but that did not deter us. Our pitch was huge and the kids had plenty of room to play.
An aerial is provided for the TV and you have to pay a £10 deposit.
Toilet block was accessed via a key which you pay a £10 deposit for. Showers were clean and plenty of hot water.
Coldingham Bay Beach was about 10 minutes walk down a lovely lane, scenic from the start to the end, where the dogs are also welcome. Beach was beautiful!
On site there is a chip shop, (fab place to eat), Scooties Bar, an arcade and soft play area for the kids and a bar/lounge for adults/kids. There is also Creels Restaurant. Can't comment on any of the food apart from the chip shop, but spoke to others who said it was lovely.
The kids loved the entertainment at night, quizzes, kids Bingo, and for the adults, Bingo, quizzes, karaoke, race nights, etc, but the children are all welcome as it is a family lounge area.
We had a brilliant time, kids loved it to. Would recommend it to anyone.
Just returned from a weekend at this beautiful site. Grounds well kept. Toilets / showers clean. Short walk to Coldingham which has a Spar shop and a few pubs / restaurant.
Short walk to lovely beach. 5 minutes drive to Eyemouth. The entertainment lounge was great. Kids played at the Tarzan swing for ages.
There is a games room/amusements for kids. TV cable supplied for Digital TV. Also a restaurant and cafe and takeaway chippie on site but we didn't use any of these so cannot comment. Can't wait to go back.
