Date of Visit: August 2019 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Nights stayed: 7 Travelling as:  Mature couple
Reviewer: Blueroan 3 reviews from this member

 Wonderful site for trailer tent in superb weather - 29 degrees on Aug Bank Hol. Pitched on grass by side of gurgling stream - we were given the option to choose our pitch.

Wash block all good, site quiet except naturally when the BH arrived it filled up.

Staff very unobtrusive once we were pitched they kept themselves to themselves. Several Chalets on site too.

Lauder is a great little town - no pretensions, no tourist fuss, just take it as you find it. Good Co-op, Deli, bakery, hotel, stately home and lots of walks.

Train line from Stowe either to Edinburgh or south towards Galashiels. Surrounding scenery of Lammamuir hills is fantastic.

We were disappointed the site didn't open in 2020 - hope to return one day.

 This is a small but perfectly formed campsite, next to a pretty little stream with lots of birdlife.

The toilet block building is a bit tired, but the facilities inside are clean, tidy and warm. (There is no keypad, so I wonder if the other reviewer stayed elsewhere. )

There is a small selection of books and DVDs to borrow in the laundry room. There are lots of leaflets with info about stuff nearby. The staff were very friendly.

We cycled to the National Trust Printing works in Innerleithen, which was very interesting. NB you can only enter as part of a tour, so check the timings. Innerleithen is a mecca for cyclists, both road and off-road.

 We used the site as a stopover. I can't see us basing a long trip here because it's not in walking distance of a town with plenty to see & do, unlike other sites in the Borders. Lauder has an excellent gallery / coffee shop (Fat Cat) but not much more - and it's a drive away, despite the name of this site. If you're visiting Edinburgh, there are sites up there. However, if you're a walker or cyclist (and you have a 1:25, 000 map), the local minor roads and hill tracks let you explore deep into the Lammermuir Hills and we did enjoy taking the dog up the valley, though our 1:50, 000 map wasn't detailed enough to leave the minor road.

The site is in a large grass open sunny field that was largely empty because of there being relatively few hardstands. The toilet block looks dated from the outside but inside the facilities were modern, bright & clean. The keypad was a nuisance, you do wonder if it's needed. The dedicated dog walk on site is ok for a comfort break, no more. No motorhome service point so you'll need a grey water canister if you stay for more than a few days.

The nearby A-road noise is intrusive - it stops in the evening but starts again early for commuter traffic.

There are large new houses to either side of the site and loose dogs from both houses came into the site - one was large & boisterous & a real nuisance: the site managers could only chase it away with choice language. The 4 managers were working hard to spruce up the site as we left, filling potholes & mending fences.

Reviewer: PedroPete61 22 reviews from this member

 A quiet site on the outskirts, the area is kept well and the view from the van is worth a few days without tv as along with the phone is poor ( it must be the 2% the phone companies are on about, )but plenty of places to walk with or without a dog. 


Date of Visit: June 2018 Unit:  Tent
Nights stayed: 2 Travelling as:  Solo traveller
Reviewer: Ayrshireman 22 reviews from this member

 A convenient site, just off the main A68, with a large area for tents, away from the motorhome/caravan area. Facilities, like many C&CC sites, older but clean and well maintained.

Unfortunately, I had rather forgotten about the regimented nature of these sites. "The corner of your tent needs to be lined up with the marker. You'll have to move it" - about two feet in fact. I wouldn't have minded so much if there had been tents in the pitches next to mine.

Oh, great food in the hotel next door!

Nearby Lauder is a smart town and we cycled from there down to Melrose which is lovely too. The A68 is a busy road, but there are alternative routes to cycle on.

Reviewer: Catarinabod 58 reviews from this member

 Used as a 2 night stopover returning from the Highlands over the Easter school hols with daughter and dog. Excellent clean and warm shower facilities. Good information available. No phone signal and wi-fi expensive. We prefer not to use the camper once set up but there didn't appear to be too much choice regarding walks from the door. Staff friendly and helpful. Very quiet while we were there. Small dog walking area by brook. Didn't use local pub (which I don't think is dog friendly).

Reviewer: MalcolmR 35 reviews from this member

 A very nice site, easy access, nice location for touring the area, and friendly staff. The toilet block was always fresh clean and tidy, also heated. The pitches were nicely set out easy pegging on the grass, choice of sunny or shaded pitches. TV reception was non existent in the lower part of the site nr the trees, but better in the more open areas.

We had a look at the nearby Jedburgh site and much preferred this location and site layout. We would certainly return and recommend this site, Our party was two adults and a old dog in a caravan.

 Well maintained site with dated but very clean toilet block. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Help yourself to herbs, yes herbs, and lots of local wildlife info available. Lovely location with a stream and pleasant dog walk bordering the site. Quiet site handy for Edinburgh. Not much for young children but easy hill walking access.

Reviewer: Harleyboy60 1 review from this member

 Just back from a lovely weekend break at this site. Helen and Brian could not do enough for us. The site is a little gem, being very quite and in a lovely location. It is close to the town of Lauder and also there is a cracking pub which is a short walk away and does very good food.

I would recommend this site.
