Site in peaceful spot a short drive from Ancrum/Jedburgh. Friendly owner greeted us & offered a choice of pitches, suggesting hardstanding may be best as rain was due so best not pitch the van on grass.

The shower/toilet facilities were rather in need of updating. 50p tokens (lasts 5 minutes)per shower. Must take your own loo roll with you or buy from the owner. Pitch cost 15 per night including electric. You could say you get what you pay for, but it did feel like the washrooms needed some attention to bring up to speed with the 21st century.

Too far to walk to Ancrum from the site (2 miles) where the village store is open 6. 30 am - 5 pm.

All in all a good stay but could be improved.

This site is a particular favourite of ours, been going for 10 years now. Nice and quiet farm site, with electric hook up, lovely scenery with walks near by. Only a 10 minute ride into Jedburgh by car. Edinburgh not much more than an hour away. The facilities are basic but very clean and are more than adequate, its got everything you need if tent camping. Friendly site owners is a bonus too.

A very rural site, a farm, about 9km from Jedburgh. Coming from Jedburgh, don't use the postal code for navigation otherwise you will end up on a steep rough track like we did! Just stay on the B6400 that passes Ancrum until you see the campsite sign. The simple, a bit outdated facilities are in a separated part of the barn. But they were o. K. For us. The remote site is very quiet and has nice views.

Had a lovely few days here meeting up with friends. Spacious, flat, well maintained camping field with some hook up pitches.

No walks from site, but plenty to do/see in nearby villages.

Facilities fairly basic - 3 toilets, 2 with showers, 1 with washing up sink (?) and one separate washing up sink. No toilet rolls or soap are provided which for a tent camper with no facilities is inconvenient. The owner said it was because people take the toilet rolls (do people really do this???) and it helps to keep the price down. 10 per night for 2 adults non electric I would have thought could cover soap and toilet roll. Showers are 50p (token) for about 3 mins - too short a time and shower temperature ranges erratically from scalding to freezing.

We really enjoyed our stay - I don't mind basic facilities but as I have none of my own, having to remember my toilet roll and being unable to wash my hands would deter another visit I'm afraid.

Site is in a lovely peaceful location with plenty of biking and walking potential. The grass is beautifully maintained and the owners were very friendly allowing us to park the van on the hardstanding track inside the field so we were near grass for the children to play.

However the toilet and shower facilities whilst cleaned were very run down and as the lights were turned off and there was no light left on you have to fumble around in the dark for the switch (and find the right switch) after dark so torches and toilet rolls are essential.

At 5 per adult, 2 per child and 3 for electric, it is reasonable.

Biggest problem for us was that in my opinion the elsan point and fresh water tap were too close to each other and rinse water for the elsan point was on the same pipe as the fresh water tap!

Used this site as a 1 night stay when travelling back down South.

Friendly owner when enquiring on telephone and on arrival. We were offered the hard standing area opposite the barn with hook up (clearly an area for vans etc) but the annoying thing was that there was a Duke of Edinburgh or something similar group camping and although we had no trouble from the teens their parents inconsiderately parked alongside our unit as if it were a car park!

Otherwise the site was quiet, friendly but basic. Toilets etc were clean but basic, need your own loo rolls as owner states he does not put any out as people take them, he will still sell you one for 40p. As previously mentioned - book swap and lots of local info / leaflets about the area provided.
