The site itself was good: toilets were clean, the fishing was fab, walks were peaceful, and showers were hot! Great local facilities, and peebles is just a short drive away.
The issue we found were there were a lot of duke of edinburgh groups which we were not informed of, and these too stayed on the camping field. Some of the groups were fine, courteous, polite, quiet and respectful: others not so much: screaming, shouting: falling into the tent playing rugby: so if you stay round this time, do check this prior to booking! Also, it appeared as though a couple of the static caravan residents found this annoying, and they tried to drowned it out with loud music. Not great when you want a quiet break: after all tents are not sound proof!
That being said, the site is great for touring, but do check for the groups! We will in future!

In general this site was a bit rough and ready. Grass could have done with a cut, pitches were small, and positioned in a way that some would have been a challenge for big units, not a problem for us with a 5 metre campervan. A popular site it got quite busy at the weekend. Toilets were simple but clean. Site is on the banks of the river tweed on a cycle track so great for cycling and walking. There is a nice looking play area for children. It is a 15 minute walk to shops through a housing estate. The on site pub served great pub grub, nothing fancy, steak pie, fish and chips Mac and cheese but beautifully cooked and tasty. At £16 per night it was good value. I would go back.

We have used & reviewed this site before. This time we took a grass tent pitch with hookup. Again we were impressed with this site & found toilets & showers even cleaner than in the past. Even with the site being busy due to a nearby major MTB race & participants using the site rather than roughing it at the basic race venue.

Hook up is paid for with pre-paid cards to the value of £1. We used nearly £4 worth using a fan heater over 2 evenings. Overnight & morning, small LED light & coolbox.

If eating out in Innerleithen I highly recommend the No:1 cafe down near the Co-op.

We have just left after three weekends stay. We were able to store the caravan during the week for only £10 which was ideal.

We have only had our caravan for a year and have been to various sites some with fully serviced pitches. This site is by far our favourite so far. We are actually considering getting a permit. Even though they don't offer fully services pitches the excellent price of £16/night with electricity makes up for that. The facilities are well kept and clean. There is also an on site bar 'Tow Bar ' which serves a good pint and food.

The site is set in a stunning location next to the river amongst the hills. The best thing about this site is the clientèle it attracts, everyone is super friendly unlike some sites we've been too. It's only a short walk into Innerleithen which has a great coffee shops and restaurants. Peebles and glentress are also very accessible as there is a cycle path that is far away from the road following the river. Takes you direct to both ( about 6 miles each way ).

I'm struggling to see how people have left anything but positive reviews for this site. I think some people can not be pleased. For example glentress charge £24/night for caravans, so unless you want to have 8 showers a day this site is way better value for money. Also I'm confused by the comments re washing dishes in the toilet facilities. These facilities are merely under the same roof in a separate room to the toilets and showers. We have never been bothered by any noise however I guess this could happen at any site.

Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will be back.

The Forsyths !

We've used this site a couple of times now & will continue to do so as it's so close & handy for the MTB downhill tracks.

Tents have their own small field. No hookups but I guess you could camp in the main part of the site if required - check first.

We noticed caravaners sometimes let their children play in the tent area despite 'no ball game signs'. This has never caused us any annoyance & I guess can be dealt with easily if it does.

Access to riverside walks via gate in camping area. Facilies are clean but showers are extra.

Nearby mini-market a short walk onto neighbouring housing estate. More in town plus good eats.

There are contractors use the site & the warden is aware of previous bad review. They will act if noise etc is brought to their attention. We've not experienced any noise.

There is a bar on site but we've not tried it yet.

We only stopped one night as we were attending a function locally and were then heading south.

The owner was very friendly when we arrived and we had booked an 'electric inclusive' pitch. It was level with plenty room for us. There were other pitches which had 'payment by card' arrangements for electric.

We did not spend much time on the site but certainly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.

I can not comment on the toilets/showers as we use our own facilities.

The only slight negative is the access through the housing estate with cars parked on either side of the road but it did not cause us a problem with a large caravan.
