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.

Pitched up for the weekend in my new caravan. The lady on reception was very friendly and explain the site lay out well to us. Was informed that they normally provide meals but chief on his Holiday.

We had plenty of room on our pitch. But this helped because the site was about empty. Think it would be a bit tight if the park was busy. The toilet block was not as modern as some. But kept very clean. £1 for showers, never tried them as used our own.

There was a very popular bar on site which seem quite nice. Having a pool table and slot machine. Nice pint. Also a small handy shop.

The fact that there was some empty spaces were static caravans used to be. Made the place look a tad messy. But maybe being filled for next season. Also a small playground.

What really liked about this site and what would make me return. Was it was right near the river. Which was great for dog walking. Also a nice flat path for cycling. My youngest of 4 managed a round trip almost to Peebles 11 miles.

Within cycling distance you had the world famous 7 stanes Mountain bike trails. Also a new GO APE at Glentess.

Last year we stayed at this site in a tent for one night during a bikepacker tour. There was some kind of domestic going on from the contract builder/roofers site attached which kept us awake most of the night. So for this years spring bike tour we thought we'd stop in one of the Pods which would be quieter. So this April we stopped in a pod for one night which has a wall mounted heater and carpeted floor. The price (£35 last years price) was way over the top for what is provided. The showers which were spotless and well lit are £1 each visit.

The site itself looks onto some beautiful hills that surround it and are awesome when the sunrise hits them. Innerleithen itself is a great little place with everything a camper would need for groceries and takeaways that are delivered to the site. On the site there seems to be a lot of contract builders and roofers who have there own shower block and facilities. At midnight on Tuesday we had the pleasure of country and western played at full blast coming from one of the contractors range rovers, at 12. 30 when I had to take a look I realised why the music was playing so loud, it was so the other 20 or so people having a BBQ could hear the music. This went on till 01. 00 when to the sound of Dolly Parton I passed out. The 60 mile bike ride next day was tough to say the least. We wont be going back. There seems to be lots of empty spaces appearing which is a shame.
