 Brilliantly kept quiet adult only site,

Excellent facilities always kept clean and tidy even the showers had what felt like underfloor heating and had shower units that you didn't have to keep depressed to enjoy a lovely shower

Facilities included a laundry room (coin operated) and an additional TV lounge with a table crammed with local information leaflets and personal recommendations from previous customers

 Top class site others should take note,

Immaculate grounds and facilities.

3 unisex toilets and 2 showers as well as much more

Excellent for cycling

No drive over grey waste for large motorhomes but we just used our hose which was fine

Definitely be back.

 What a gem of a site

Very quiet and adults only and also dog friendly

Great facilities, toilets & showers very clean

There is also a great TV room with selection of Dvds books & magazines

The owners work very hard to make this site such an excellent place to stay

Will definitely be returning

 A fantastic little adults site. It was great see that no signs were up saying toilets would be closed for cleaning for two hours, the facilities were always immaculate and must be cleaned when people not about.

Pitches were adequate size and it’s not unusual that you park in front of caravan to avoid being on the grass.

Patrick the owner was always helpful and on the end of the phone if you needed anything or at his house.

Close to Paxton house and pub in Paxton village is lovely.

Site is central for visiting lots of places from Cheviot Hills to Holy Island,

Highly recommend walk around St Abbs and also visiting beaches nearby.

We’ll definitely back as the area is excellent and site is perfect

 Nice location next to the River Tweed, unfortunately the chain bridge was still under repair so not usable but there are walks along the river.

Level hardstandings, although some are a little tight if you have an awning as you then have to park in front of the `van (no parking on the grass).

Facilities are spotlessly clean with an information centre, laundry room and common room with books/TV/DVDs.

A couple of negatives - the grey water disposal point doesn`t have a facility to wash out your grey water container, and we were plagued with `fridge alarm going off in the evenings when the site was full. This was due to the voltage drop (I measured 192 volts which was enough to upset the `fridge) and also seemed to affect the microwave.

 Lovely small adults only campsite in a stunning location for walks,

Beaches and touring the area. The site feels a little congested at full capacity due to cars having to park in front of their caravans, however it is really well looked after with well tended shrubs and flowers. There is some noise from visitors to the Honey Farm but it's happy noise so that's fine!

The facilities are clean with extras like washing machine, microwave and loads of information about the area.

Now to the niggles - the access door to the showers is small and as an arthritis sufferer I struggled to get in and out easily and it was quite disconcerting to be plunged into darkness after a few minutes and have to exit the shower to get light, also the shower was not warm enough for me or my husband.

 This site is located in beautiful countryside far from busy road noise or anything else likely to disturb. The downside of that of course is that if you are in a Motorhome getting to shops becomes a bit inconvenient.

On arrival we were met by a pleasant lady who made sure we were ok and offered assistance should we require it. That was the last time we saw anyone from the site owners /managers. No big deal but a visual presence occasionally would have been nice.

As for the site itself we found it to be below the standard we have experienced on other Tranquil Park sites for the following reasons:-

The chemical waste point supplied water through a very short, leaking rubber hose. Consequently touching said hose risked contamination. The fact that there was no cleansing facility provided was disappointing.

Grey water disposal could be a health hazard due to the provision of a mucky, soaking wet rope to be used for raising the cover…Yuck!

Several external light points were out of order or making movement during darkness risky without a torch.

Toilet facilities looked tired and cheap, the showers cold and cramped and overall there appeared to be a lack of attention to detail. There was no apparent notice of any cleaning regime indeed I saw no evidence of any such activity during our stay.

Overall the site is not that bad but in terms of value for money it falls well short of the mark.

Would we return…No

Nice well positioned site

Easy to get too

Adult only

Beautiful area



Good clean facility

Full serviced (nearly)

Right next to the Tweed and the historical Chain Bridge down the hill

Other side of the bridge is Scotland


Service pitch does not include grey water so need waste master

No close dog walks just a road down the hill to the bridge

Very poor communication

Never received a single text or acknowledgment

Found had given away our pitch on our last day which they admitted totally their fault as recorded our departure date wrong, sorted but left a bad taste in our mouths

Would we come again NO

 Chainbridge caravan site

An average site

16 pitches - we were on pitch 1 which I would deem to be the worst pitch on site, the better size and open and sunnier pitches being 6 - 16, allowing awnings and car to have sufficient space, so if you are thinking of staying try to get one of these, although there are no guarantees.

Our pitch (north facing front) was surrounded by high hedging thus the awning stayed damp and musty most of the day, due to lack of sunlight to dry it out.

Car had to be parked along the front of the caravan adjacent to the driveway in, as there is insufficient space to the side to park.

The pitch is not wide enough for a standard caravan and 2. 4m awning.

Also as the pitch widths 1-5 are narrow the neighbours awning encroaches on the fire safety distance for sites.

Constant noise from adjacent road and visitors to the neighbouring honey farm, plus the ongoing works to Chain Bridge do not make it a quiet stay in comparison to other tranquil sites we have used.

Facilities are minimal 2 shower units and 3 wc’s for 16 pitches, thus possibly 32 people, you may need to queue, this number of units would be ok if there was grey water waste at each pitch, but there is not.

Cubicles are small approx 950 wide with sliding shower doors opening width approx 450.

There is no ambulant disabled facility and in fact the corridor in the facility block is sloping and uneven along its length with approx 7 deg cross-fall near entrance, thus being a trip hazard.

There is a tv room and dishwashing facility in the block as well 2 sinks which we did not use plus washing machine and dryers.

The grey waste disposal has a concrete lid openable by a length of rope. Wc waste is by the common metal box and liner. Be aware, There are no sanitising stations near either of these.

There are separate skips for general waste and recycling.

Apart from arrival we did not see or speak to the owners.

Berwick on Tweed is the nearest large town for shopping.
