Reviewer: Grumpy D 3 reviews from this member

 After having this site highly recommended, we decided to travel to Coldingham Bay to check it out.

We were allocated a pitch in the top corner. Not my preferred choice but it was OK. All the pitches (as far as I could tell) had electric, water and waste.

There is a (slightly dated) shower block that dies the job. The elsan is located on the same building.

At the time of writing, there wasn't any entertainment facilities on site as construction on the new building was nearing competition.

The beach is a short 5 minute drive or a long 15 to 20 minute walk.

The Coldingham beach is a popular area for surfers. There is a seasonal cafe on the beach but there is a permanent shop which offers hot and cold drinks and some snacks next to the carpark, just as you approach the beach.

 We stayed for one night and there was no hot water in the toilet blocks and my wife said out of the three toilets, two of them was blocked with paper and waste

Other than that it was ok

Reviewer: Johnnys149 2 reviews from this member

 Decent sized pitches, all fully serviced. Some of the pitches are a bit tight to reverse into. I have had to unhitch and push the caravan in once or twice.

Small kids play area in the middle of the touring area.

Coldingham Bay beach is a short drive away. Excellent for days out on a sunny day, and there are lifeguards on duty at busy times.

Onsite club serves snacks.

Eyemouth is close by and has a couple of good restaurants and takeaways. Berwick is around a 20 minute drive along the A1.

Reviewer: Stuart l 90 reviews from this member

 Not really our 'cup of tea' type of site, but was convenient to come and see family at Eyemouth. 50 pitches on the edge of a large static holiday park - but we counted 22 at least as being long term sites. Site was quiet during the week, but filled up on Friday evening.

Facility block at bottom of site with adequate toilets & showers, washing up and elsan disposal. Generally clean although not always fully equipped with toilet rolls!

Static park has a lounge bar which serves some basic food - but not inspiring.

Two pubs in the village = the Anchor was the better of the two.

Eyemouth has small selection of basic shops and is a pleasant little port town. Berwick on Tweed is only 20 minutes drive with much more facilities.

Plenty to explore in the area - but do be prepared to travel.

Would we go again? Yes if necessary - but at 30 a night, we won't be rushing. 


Date of Visit: July 2016 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Kevthewev 1 review from this member

 Site is located on the outskirts of Coldingham and is mainly full of static caravans with the tourers and tents tucked away in a corner field next to the main road. This of course means that you are subject to a lot of road noise as vehicles are either slowing down or speeding up depending upon if they are leaving or entering the village.

The reception is within the clubhouse, which is a sizeable, relatively modern building. The staff were all friendly and we were quickly settled onto our pitch. It wasn't level but that was easily sorted, it is fully serviced but the grey waste is emptied from the caravan into a pipe coming out of the ground so make sure you have a long enough, flexible pipe to shove down it!

Our pitch was very close to the play area which is roughly in the middle of the field, this is also where the rubbish bins are kept. Unfortunately this was a magnet for children of all ages and the noise was ridiculous going on until 11pm most nights, on top of all this one of the swings was badly in need of some grease as it squeaked on every ascent/descent.

The shower block was a couple of minutes walk away and was generally kept clean however one morning in the mens section someone had locked one shower cubicle from the outside and had emptied what looked like half a beach full of sand in the other and the water drain cover was broken too with all the sharp pieces exposed. I complained but was told that it was quite common for the children to use the showers as a play area at night when they were less frequented.

This isn't a quiet, peaceful site so if that is what you are after look elsewhere, but it is in a great area, just a shame that the owners let minor infringements spoil an otherwise good park.

Reviewer: Rosegarden 3 reviews from this member

 We have just visited this site, but must say that the road noise was too much to stay for the week. The area is very pleasant and worth the visit but this is more a site for caravans as the noise when they leave the site bar is unavoidable in a tent but not with the insulation of a caravan.

The facilities were clean and tidy but the early hours which they were cleaned was obtrusive as this happened between 7. 00 and 8. 30 am every morning.

Reviewer: Patbill 11 reviews from this member

 Although the weather wasn't good at the beginning of our stay the site was quite pleasant. As we had a fully serviced pitch we used the showers in our caravan as there were only two showers in the facilities. The facilities were clean and tidy. There is a club house where you could go for a drink and entertainment

A short walk from the site took you into the village where there were two pubs, a shop and a bus stop where you could catch a bus to Berwick and local villages. A beach was about 1 mile away and there are coastal walks into Eyemouth or over to St Abbs Head and beyond.

Reviewer: Mozchops 1 review from this member

 We chose to stay at the Crosslaw Caravan park, and we're so glad we did. The park is well maintained, with a good sized pitch for our caravan, complete with picnic bench which was a bonus. The toilet facilities were clean and kept locked, but you are given a keyfob to use the toilet block, which in my opinion is a great idea, keeping the facilities for guests to a good standard.

The clubhouse is very welcoming, nice and airy with bar and a pool table and darts area. There is also a small soft play section for the younger children, great for young families. There is plenty to do in the village and St Abbs beach a very short drive or a nice walk away. All in all a really nice relaxing break, and I look forward to coming back again very soon. 

Date of Visit: September 2014 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Leeds Loiners 7 reviews from this member

 Stayed for 2 nights on a large pitch with picnic table and slab for bbq with hedges giving some shelter and privacy. The tent pitches had electrics which we didn't use. Key fob entry into showers and toilets which were exceptionally clean all day long.

Plenty of hot water and plenty of hooks in shower cubicle to hang clothes along with a shower tidy to put your shower gel etc in. Indoor wash up area and laundry were very good and clean.

All in all a nice site and friendly people. 10. 25 per person per night in September seems quite high but by judging by the loads of statics on well manicured grass it may be that they don't really want tents on site. Beach close by and shops pubs etc close.

St Abbs fishing village is well worth a visit and the food in the old school house is fantastic.
