Stayed at this really nice campsite for 2 nights with my young son for our third camping trip since we started this summer and what will probably be our last now till next spring.

The manager was very helpful - suggesting we pay initially for one night and see how we went before committing to two! Despite being very windy on the first night, the weather was actually better than on our two previous camping trips in July/August.

It's in a great location on the site of an old station, with a small shop stocking essentials, a bothy (not used) and a couple of shower/toilet blocks. Those nearest us were a couple of hundred yards away from our tent and very clean.

The site was busier than I expected for late September, but we had plenty of room and had no issues using the facilities.

Aberlady is great for Aberlady Bay and the East Lothian coast and Museum of Flight as well as being only 30 mins from Edinburgh.

We wanted a coastal site, close to Edinburgh, not too big.

Drove through Aberlady last year, thought it would fit our list.

It's a great site, the old railway station, a victim of Beeching's cuts.

The way is has been turned into a campsite, whilst still incorporating some of the old infrastructure is inspired.

There are even pitches along the old platform.

The site is not very large and there is some seasonal storage there, but it doesn't intrude.

Andrew and his dad are really nice and welcoming, always working away on site, keeping it lovely and tidy.

The facilities are a little on the old side, however, kept clean and supply everything you need.

It's very good if you have dogs, as there is direct access to acres of walking directly from the site.

We were lucky enough to see deer in the field with us.

It's minutes away from a nature reserve at the coast and there are several, great beaches within 5 miles.

We are going back next year

I camped as a bike plus tent solo. Superb camping location on the platform of the former Aberlady station. Toilet/Wash facilities very clean. The 'bothy' was a godsend for the lightweight camper with full cooking and washing up facilities (and TV). The guy was very friendly and advised about facilities in the village. Highly recommended!

Great place. Took the tent when the sun came out for a couple of days and headed East from Glasgow. The site used to be an old station so the kids enjoyed exploring the place. The facilities were all in order, the owner relaxed and sociable, and there was plenty of space. Within safe strolling distance is Aberlady, a lovely village with plenty of history, access to beach walks and the surrounding hills, and a couple of great pubs and even a curry house.

Had a great 2 days stay in June15. V tidy and friendly owners on site. 1/2 from Aberlady where busses go to either Edinburgh or North Berwick - we went to the latter and had a great day on the sandy beaches there - v nice cafes etc.

Aberlady is great for coastal walks and meals/drinks etc.

Will use again

Had been wary, given some iffy reviews, but no need. We quickly warmed to this site and we'd be happy to go back. The dog loved the direct access to farm tracks around arable fields that surround the Gosford Estate (its farm shop is worth driving to). The welcome is warm and the atmosphere is relaxed, a choice of hard stand or grass pitch (both 20 with EHU), with a late departure at mid-day. It's well maintained - the old toilet block is just that - old, but it's clean and freshly painted. The unisex heated portacabin by the grass pitches has 2 toilets & 2 showers (free), and is spotless. A chunk of the site is given over to storage, but this does not intrude into any views or affect any pitches. There are a few seasonals spaced along the old railway platform (interesting photos of the station, plus a TV and camp kitchen including fridge, microwave etc, are in 'The Bothy'). We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and the sunny south-facing views to the Hopetoun Monument, and came home relaxed and rested. Aberlady is 10 mins walk, the first short section has no pavement but the few drivers are considerate: the Indian take-away / restaurant there was highly recommended by our neighbours. Plenty to enjoy in North Berwick, Gullane, Dunbar, Haddington, Lennoxlove Castle, bird-watching nature reserves along the coast and lots of golf courses to suit every pocket. Nearest Tesco at Haddington, bigger one at North Berwick. Bus to North Berwick (6. 30 return) or to Edinburgh (cost unknown) from Aberlady.
