General

  • Well-maintained eco-friendly park in a wildlife haven
  • Fully-equipped indoor barbecue hut and hot tub on site
  • Friendly owners and spectacularly scenic location

There's a lot you could say when you see Strathmore Caravan Park at Berwick-upon-Tweed, but you'll probably kick things off with their onsite hut, Chatterbox Folly. All sites should have one of these, you'll likely think: an indoor and cutely decorated space for campers to meet and toast the marshmallows thoughtfully provided by the Strathmore Caravan Park owners.

Chatterbox Folly is just one of several astute little additions added by the owners at this friendly park in the village of Fishwick, where you'll also find a picnic area, fishing rod stand, bike rack, dog walking area, book swap and information points. And a cute little shower and compost toilet housed in rustic wooden huts (fret not if you've never used an eco-friendly compost toilet before; it works like any other toilet, just without the flush).

You'll also probably be somewhat impressed by the Strathmore location, set in an area of spectacular countryside scenery and within easy driving distance of Borders towns and villages, Northumberland, Berwick-upon-Tweed and quite a few historic sites and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You might want to book for more than a couple of days...

    Everything was excellent. The grounds were well kept and the facilities immaculate.

    The chilling hut with free marshmallows in lovely and was a great place to meet and talk with other campers.

    Everywhere you look you find a nice extra touch from the solar powered lights as you walk through to the hut, to the wigwam in the forest.

Very friendly owners. Site clean and different. Good value. 31/08/2016

  • Electric gravel touring pitch (no awnings)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Owners, pitches having water and grey drainage, the meeting hut with fire and marshmellows, quercky toilet and shower huts. Site was quiet during the night. Big fire pit would have been great to use, if we had been in a group. Toilet and shower kept clean though out the day, with plenty of loo roll suppied.

    Disliked: 

    Disliked is hard hard word to use, maybe an other toilet would have been good, or an engaged sign, to stop people trying to get in when you was on throne.

    Loved the quirkiness & the enchanting chatter room. I'm not going to spoil it for anyone who hasn't been. Loved the Honey Farm a few miles away. We were given lots of information about places to visit in the area. Very helpful and lovely ladies who ran the site.

    Lovely quirky site, just outside Berwick. There is a bus service but it's a good walk to find the bus stop. That being said taxis into Berwick only cost about a tenner. So it's a tossup on uprooting the motor-home or a taxi. Very friendly and accommodating. There is a BBQ area and meeting hut for an informal get together of an evening, it's very inclusive and charming.

    Well, the children loved the bbq Hut and marsh mallows. Space to run around and the hide and seek areas

    Great location, safe and secure with space for kidd to play and meet safely. Fantastic location for Bamburgh Castle, Seahouses, Lindisfarne and Farne Islands and much more. Welcoming friendly owners. Community spirit, with special Hut with open fire and complimentary marshmallows to promote people to meet, talk and come together, if they want of course. Top site.

    Disliked: 

    Not too keen in the economy composting toilets, however, they are neither as bad, nor smelly, than envisaged.....so not a negative at all really.

    No WiFi ot decent mobile signal, but sometimes that's an advantage.

    This is a very well thought out site, the Chatterbox Folly is a fantastic idea, every site should have one, by law. The site is extremely clean and tidy, the pitches are a good size, we had pitch 5, which is a grass pitch with masses of space around it, electric, water and grey waste seemed to be on most of the pitches (all had electric).

    There are lots little touches around the site, that have obviously been well thought out, for example people with dogs there are dog waste bins with poo bag dispensers alongside, and a little dog walk in a wooded area for the dog to sniff about in, the lights, garden ornaments, benches and picnic tables are a lovely touch, the outdoor fire pit, tee pee for the kids, the star of the show the chatterbox folly to name but a few. Very safe for the kids, as the whole site is surrounded by a fence, and the main gate is electrically operated.

    I have seen a few comments about the eco toilet, don't be put off, it is absolutely fine, no smells, clean and as good as a conventional toilet.

    If you are staying in this area, book here, you won't be disappointed, you will not find a better site, and at such a reasonable price

Directions


From Edinburgh
Take the A1 south to Berwick-upon-Tweed and at the Morrison's roundabout continue on the A1 south to Newcastle. At the bottom of the hill, turn right onto the B6461 signposted Paxton/Kelso and continue on this road for 5.3 miles. Strathmore Caravan Park is signposted on the right-hand side.

From Newcastle
Take the A1 north, following the signs for Berwick-upon-Tweed, and go through two roundabouts taking the A1 towards Edinburgh. Cross the River Tweed and take the first left onto the B6461 signposted Paxton/Kelso. Continue on this road for 5.3 miles. Strathmore Caravan Park is signposted on the right-hand side.

Please note that satnavs tend to turn people off the B6461 at the wrong point to Fishwick Mains. (We are actually in West Fishwick.) Please only leave the B6461 on seeing our signs at the top of the drive with a white bungalow set back from the road.

Local attractions

This is a beaut area of the country, set close to the coast and with heaps of countryside attractions too whether you're ready to relax or up for adventure, or feel like some local River Tweed fishing, golfing, hiking or biking.

Within five minutes' drive are Paxton House and its 80 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland walks by the River Tweed; Norham Castle, a significant part of the England/Scotland skirmishes in days of yore, and the Chain Bridge Honey Farm to pick up sweet souvenirs.

Several other castles are in the region: Dunstanborough, Floors, Lindisfarne and Bamburgh are all well worth a look; Border Abbeys, Abbotsford House, Alnwick Gardens, the Ford and Etal estate and Bowill House and its country park are all close by for fans of historic houses and green green gardens.

Both Berwick-upon-Tweed and the coast at Spittal Beach are within a ten-minute drive and naturally we're going to recommend a day at both… Ancient Berwick-upon-Tweed is quite the pull for history buffs, with its old old ramparts to walk around and the oldest barracks in Britain; take a snap of the historic railway viaduct too.

And if it's nature you're after, have a day seeing the seabirds at the spectacular St Abb's Head National Nature reserve on the Berwickshire coast, where you'll be able to spy thousands of flutterers including guillemots, kittiwakes and razorbills.
