 Very quiet. Immaculately kept. Flat, quality pitch.

Very friendly owner.

Would definitely return. Facilities closed due to Covid so cannot comment.

Great base for everything in the area.

 This is a lovely, clean and friendly site. We enjoyed our stay very much, we will return again.

They were very helpful when we had car trouble.

It's a lovely area for site seeing and we had several good cycle rides from the site.

 This was the only site we could find with availability on the Aug BH weekend within 100 mile radius! Not sure why as it is a little gem.

Beautifully kept lawn, borders and hedges - like camping in a garden. All hard standing pitches large or even larger and level. Water point at each pitch and electricity at or very nearby.

Unsure how much of the booking / check in process was altered by Covid but we were delighted with it. Paid by BACS prior to arrival. Board at entrance clearly informing us of our pitch number (there are only 16).

Facilities were closed but with access to own water point it was easy to use the Motorhome as it is intended - first time in 7 years we have used the shower!

Chemical toilet disposal next to grey water drain and bins. Drain a little tricky to access with bike rack on back and so those with longer vehicle or with outlet in the middle of their van would need a hosepipe.

Location is stunning. Beautiful view from entrance down to River Tweed and the union Chain Bridge. Easy 1 1/4 mile walk along the river to Horncliffe. Not quite so easy 5 or 6 mile walk in the opposite direction to Berwick. Would suggest walking as far as the single track road then taking that to the roundabout. Once you cross the main road cut back down for the last 2 miles of the riverside path. (The middle section is overgrown, full of nettles and pretty slippy. )

Lots of easy cycle routes along the many single track roads to choose from. Go over the chain bridge to explore the Scottish side of the borders or stay this side of the Tweed and visit Ford and Etal.

The campsite backs on to the Honey Farm which, although closed, was obviously still producing honey judging by the number of bees on our van when we returned on the sunny Sunday afternoon. Not sure what had attracted them as there were no flowers nearby. They all seemed pretty lazy so maybe nearing the end of their lifespan?

This is the 5th site we have stayed on since lockdown was lifted and the 3rd with closed facilities. It is the only site that offered a reduction because of this. Much appreciated, thank you.

We will definitely visit again

 Pros: This is a nice tidy site which has electric and water on each pitch. The owner is very friendly. There are lots of wonderful walks from site which we enjoyed with our two labs.

Cons: This is not a quiet site despite it's claims to be. The site is boarded on two sides by a large area apparently owned by the Honey Farm and seems to be owned by someone who collects antique/clapped out commercial vehicles, tractors and machinery.

These are VERY noisy and he and his mates kept driving them around for fun. The noise continued on and off, mostly on, from the time we arrived on Friday afternoon until we left Monday morning. (Started at 9. 20 sun morning) In between they were left idling.

A couple in a caravan said this had been going on for the 2 weeks they had been there so it was not just a one-off weekend thing. Needless to say we will not be revisiting.

 Chainbridge adults only caravan site horncliffe berwick is a lovely place to visit, My wife and myself and angus our westie enjoyed our 3 night stay on route to york,

We could not fault anything about the site even though the facilities block was closed for covid 19 reasons,

The owners of the site are very polite cheerful and very helpful in every way and the site itself is just perfect,

The surrounding walks outwith the site are very scenic and peaceful, Berwick upon tweed with shops/cafes/pubs and walks is very nice and is only 10 mins drive away,

We hope to return to this lovely place, Bob/Alison and Angus Clunie.

 Lovely little site. Beautifully kept. Pitches are large level hardstandings with grass to the side.

Water and electric points on individual pitches. Decent free Wi-fi.

No facilities open this season due to COVID but we always use our own anyway. Plenty of disinfectant left at strategic points for your use.

A short walk to the river and bridge.

Highly recommended.

 Superb, quiet, adult only/dog friendly site that is well maintained and clean.

The 'facilities building' is probably the best we've seen on any small site - Nina & Patrick have supplied campers with a lovely on-site building that has various rooms housing a sitting area with tv & free WIFI, a kitchen area with microwave and 2 washing up sinks, washing machines & tumble dryer plus ironing facilities, 2 superb showers (not on an annoying timer or present tempreture) & with sliding glass doors so the dressing area stays dry and also has a chair to use so no slipping over getting dressed on one leg ! plus 3 separate toilets.

There are only 16 pitches and most (if not all l) have hook up and close to fresh water tap.

Nina (the owner) is friendly and on hand if needed. She has supplied plenty of touring literature inside the facilities building including a parking permit for visits in to Berwick (which has tons of free 24 hour parking sites including space for motorhome parking in the car park next to B&M).

Only downside was not knowing we needed to pay by cash but luckily we had just enough on us.

The site has great views and is next door to the Honey Farm with a really interesting exhibition, visible/working bee hive (glass display so you're protected), sales of honey etc and a fab cafe set in an old double decker bus offering a superb spread of cakes to have with your cuppa. Across the road is a lovely walk along the river for dogs & their humans (although a bit muddy in wet weather).

Superb stay which we wish had been longer.
