This is a lovely site. I almost don't want to review it in case it encourages too many people to visit! I camped there on my own, and found it perfect for my needs: peaceful, safe, a helpful but not intrusive owner, small enough to feel cosy but not too crowded that you couldn't have privacy. Areas of tree planting and wildflowers create little bays and screens around the different areas of the site, and the old railway building adds character.
The site is surrounded by farm fields, to the south giving lovely views of the Garleton hills. Gullane has a great selection of shops, and is about 2-3 miles away, while Aberlady itself is walkable. The site is very handy for the Aberlady nature reserve.
A little bothy provides a hob, fridge, spare cooking utensils, microwave and kettle, all of which meant that I didn't need to use my stove if I didn't want to. There were 3 women's showers and two unisex showers, and I never had to queue once; indeed, I was usually the only person in there. There are quite a lot of stored caravans on site which some people might feel ruins the appearance and makes it look a little untidy, but I quite liked the homely feel.
Overall, I found this site perfect for my needs and will definitely be back. If you're looking for entertainment, or want to sit around late into the night being noisy, this isn't the site for you, but if you want a quiet place to ramble, walk the dog and enjoy the peaceful outdoors in a safe but not too regimented atmosphere, then this is for you.
