Very handy 1 night stop over on our way north. The site manager stayed late to let us in after our long drive into Scotland and the site is very close to Gretna.

A Co-Op and a chip shop are handy and just a 5 minute walk away.

The site itself is well laid out and the facilities are perfectly adequate, with plenty of hot water for our showers.

Would happily return again for a stop over.

Nice clean site. A mix of residential caravans and tourers. Facilities are clean and perfectly adequate, 20p per shower. A ten minute walk to pubs and restaurants. Large retail outlet within a mile. Friendly owners are very helpful.

Another visit for us and little has changed in the last 12 months.

Still a warm and friendly welcome, quick book in and on the pitch. Showers and loos still kept pristine - we did find the ladies not so in the morning but that was due to other campers and the mess they left so not due to the site. Later in the morning once cleaned they were back to their usual high standards of cleanliness.

There is a brand new Coop supermarket less than 5 minutes walk along the road, still several other small supermarkets and general shops within the area.

We find this a perfect stop off travelling North or South, its just a few minutes off the motorway, straight through the town with good access to the site.

We paid £21 for 2 adults with ehu and incl wifi - showers are etc. Would not hesitate to use again.

This site was in a perfect location for us to break our journey North, being easily accessed from the motorway. Check in was easy and the people there could not have been more helpful. It was wet when we were there but the hardstandings were still good and firm. There is a really useful information hut from where we discovered a pleasant local walk down to the river. It is a short walk to Gretna, with its shops etc and not much further on a traffic free route, to Gretna Green. The facilities on the site are a bit dated but are kept clean and are perfectly adequate. Access to the site is via a barrier and key card for a £5 deposit and its operation appeared a bit hit and miss. All in all, we would most certainly use this site again as it was perfect for what we wanted.

We turned up without a booking, no problems lovely lady in reception had us booked in and on a pitch in minutes.

Its a short 10-15 minute walk into the town and the outlet village. Further onto the original Blacksmiths, probably another 20-30 minutes walk. Nearer the campsite there is a few shops, small supermarket, takeaways etc - all about 5 minutes walk.

The campsite itself is well kept, seemed very secure, barrier key used during the late evening and night for which you pay a £5 deposit. The site is close to the road but we weren't bothered by road noise at all.

The site has free wifi, although they said a basic service we thought it was really good signal.

There is plenty to do in the area in terns of the borders and the coast. For us it was a one night stop heading North but would use the site again if we were in the area for longer.

September is still high season so £21. 50 per night for 2 adults with ehu, showers 20p extra for several minutes.

We decided to visit Gretna on the way to Hadrian's Wall and so glad we did. The tourist information suggested this caravan park and what a lovely park it was. Really quaint, which is what we like, the owner was really friendly and helpful and the toilets/showers were immaculate. We did not use the showers as we have our own in the motorhome. We were able to walk the dogs offsite which was fine and the park was close enough in walking distance to the grocery store and takeaway. I would recommend this park to anyone thinking of visiting Gretna.

Located just a few minutes walk from Gretna so ideal for proximity to registry office if you are marrying in the area. Shops and take aways also close by and Gretna Inn about 10-15 minutes walk. The Gretna Inn is dog friendly and food very good with friendly staff. The site is adequate with good toilet/shower facilities (showers 20p) and quiet considering location. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and walked off site - this is strictly enforced. Staff did advise of a location we could take our dog to for walking off the lead (about 10 mins walk away) otherwise not really a good area for dog walking.

We booked here as we visit Gretna every year for our anniversary, and this is our 1st year with our caravan. We had a service pitch which was fantastic the site is lovely and clean and friendly there is plenty of birds and rabbits to see, it was just so nice to be able to take out 2 westies to there home countries, we went to the Gretna inn pub at the end of the road it is about 20 minute walk and dog friendly we had some lovely meals highly recommend the haggis topped steak, we visited the blacksmith shop where we got married and there was lots of weddings taking place Gretna is a lovely place to visit and we will be back to braids next year 😀

We used this site as a stop over on the way home. It's easy to find, £17. 00 per night £5. 00 deposit for the security gate & toilet key. Reception was very nice clearly explained where everything was & also offered discount vouchers for eating out. Toilets were clean, 20p for using the shower the ladies hair dryer was out of order. Good area for washing dishes. There are warnings about over loading the electric but if your sensible (not plugging everything in at once) then it works fine.

Gretna shopping outlet is a 10 minute walk from site & plenty of places to eat. We used The Gables Hotel right next to the site (10% discount voucher obtained from reception) food was good & good price.

We couldn't fault this site for a stop over it's great & will hopefully use it again.

Probably not suitable for kids as no playpark.

Stopped overnight on our Scotland tour. Showers good and clean, 20p in meter allows plenty of time. Pitches a little small but adequate. Reception very helpful. Gretna 10 minute walk, and Gretna Green about 3 mile away. Wouldn't stay here for long as little to see, but would certainly overnight again.
