Stayed at this site for two nights. Hard standing pitches with 16amp electric and water and waste right at our caravan. Very tidy site with well kept grounds which are a pleasure to walk round.

The hard standing pitches could do with a bit more greenery as they are a bit like a car park.

The toilet block was a bit dated, however kept very clean and my only grumble would be that there was a bad drain smell.

Reception staff could have been a little more friendly as we had to ask all the questions about pitch, toilet etc.

Lots of static caravans which all seem very well kept and at the time of staying the site was very quiet.

Good swing parks around the site for children and the children that we did see were having a great time on their bikes cycling around all the pathways.

The site is near a lovely river walk and the surrounding area is beautiful. Kelso itself is a beautiful wee town and a visit to Floors Castle is well worth it.

There is a large field next to the site which holds many large events and staying at the caravan site would be well worth it if you were going to one of the events.

I would like to go back to this site for a longer period of time as there was lots in the area to see and do and we simply ran out of time.

Loved this site from the moment we arrived. As previously stated, all pitches hard-standing with hook-up, water and waste. Toilets very clean with individual cubicles containing shower, toilet and wash hand basin.

Lots of statics surround the tourer area but are not too close and are sited in such a way that lets everyone have their own space. When you check-in, you are then left to pick your own pitch from the 20 available.

A great riverside walk is accessed directly from the site.

Kelso town centre has a good variety of local shops and a new Sainsburys is being built.

We will definitely return to this value for money site(20/night inc. Hook-up & awning), so do give it try, but book ahead due to the limited number of pitches.

Stayed at this campsite primarily because it was close to a horse event we were attending.

The site seemed quite busy when we arrived but we had a choice of pitches, there is an electric hook up point, water and grey waste for every 4 pitches. The pitches are huge. Facilities are close and are of the highest standard, despite the site being almost full there was always a shower available. The showers were hot and powerful.

There were several children on the site when we stayed but due to the site having good play areas available, there was never a problem with children playing near the pitches.

Once dusk descended the site became very peaceful and quiet, with very little noise other than that of a couple of owls in the nearby trees.

Plenty of walks from the site - was a great site to take the dogs to.

My only criticisms would be the elsan whilst being well out of the way is quite a walk away from the pitches. Also the staff in reception whilst really helpful when questions where asked could have been a bit more informative about where the facilities where ( waste water and elsan etc) when booking guests in.

This site is definitely one we would return to, 3 night stay was too short.

Not having been in this area before, I wasn't sure what to expect of Kelso or this site. But what an outstanding site.

Marvellously spread out with mature trees and shrubs, it's split into various sections. It's mostly statics down at the front, but they're all nice fresh units nicely arranged, not crammed on top of each other like at many sites.

Tourer pitches (just a few by comparison) are towards the back of the site, but large, neat, tidy and superbly maintained.

Washrooms and dishwashing facilities are close by and are exceptional. EHU, fresh water supply and grey water drain at each touring pitch.

There are a couple of play areas for kids - the new one looks like it was pretty expensive.

We only staying for one night, but this would be a lovely site to return to each evening after day trips exploring the Scottish Borders or Northumberland.

I saw a pheasant and a fawn with it's mother on the site, and you don't get that often on a campsite.

A lovely site, mainly statics with 20 touring pitches. Pitches all hard standing and loads of space - we got to choose which we wanted.

Staff friendly with good tourist information.

About 15 minutes walk to Kelso - got a taxi back for 5.

Toilets lovely - separate cubicles with shower, basin and toilet and spotless. Dishwashing room.

Small children's playground.

Would recommend.

Spent three nights on this site over Easter Holidays. Site is mainly statics with a small area for 20 tourers, all hard standing pitches with electric hook up.

Site was lovely, well laid out, plenty of room on touring pitch for caravan, awning and car.

Childrens play area was well equipped and well used, good grassy areas for ball games which were also well used.

Toilet and shower facilities always clean and never closed.

Site was right next to the river and it was a pleasant walk along, river was really high and fast flowing when we were there, saw several canoes.

Kelso was a 10-15 minute walk away with local shops, small swimming pool and several eating places. Can recommend The Courtyard for good food and good value, family friendly and staff were excellent.

While walking through the site one evening we spotted a few young deer and they crossed the road right in front of us, closest I have been to a deer, it was a lovely experience.

Would definitely recommend and would return in the future.
