There is an abundance of things to do on your doorstep, some of which are a walking distance from Thirlestane Caravan Park. The Scottish Borders is popular due to the sheer range of activities packed into such a small and accessible region – castles, historic festivals, arts and crafts, delicious local produce and miles of rolling hills, beautiful valleys, and the Berwickshire coastline.

Fantastic site! Just been camping for the weekend, so peaceful and quiet, showers and toilets very clean and well looked after. Friendly and helpful staff.
Even the locals in the village of Lauder were very friendly, would recommend this site to anyone its great.

Lovely caravan site, beautiful areas, clearly well looked after by owners and staff. Plenty of animals nearby and a lovely little stream just off the tent section.
