Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping: Camp in the wild wood or in fields of green... the choice is yours

General

  • Site inside a pretty Edwardian walled garden with a wild woodland area
  • A five-minute drive to Denholm and 15 minutes away from Jedburgh
  • Kitchen, wifi, indoor common areas, flower garden and games lawn

My, my is there much to see and do at Ruberslaw Wild Woods Camping, a 500-acre site inside an Edwardian walled garden and woodland setting in the Teviot Valley Special Landscape Area of the Scottish Borders. At this pristine park, chances for walking, cycling and relaxing really are all around…

Helping you with the restful element of your hol is the common Hub with its undercover courtyard and open fireplace (get wood from reception) as well as the peaceful Edwardian vinery where you can play giant Jenga or curl up with a novel.

When it comes to walking, that’s a cinch too as you can wander past pond terraces, a flower garden, games lawn and old orchard without setting foot off site; head to the wild wood edging the manicured landscape to see smaller animals like hare and shrew as well as bigger creatures such as the badger, fox, weasel, ferret and roe deer among the trees.

If you’ve got your sights set on cycling, you can take on a 10-mile warm-up trail to Bonchester Bridge (almost seven miles away) from the park and return via the other side of the Rare valley. Mountain bikers can head to the summit of Ruberslaw or over the hill and through the woods, and the Jeddart Justice Trail is within easy access for keen riders too.

When back on base after muddy escapades make a beeline for the boot-washing facilities to get cleaned up then pick up local produce like burgers, bacon and sausages from the on-site shop to cook in one of the firebowls. You could also head over to Denholm (just over a five-minute drive away) and refuel at one of the two pubs, Italian restaurant or café.

A well-equipped kitchen is also on site for making meals; other amenities include showers, toilets and washing areas with underfloor heating.

    What a fabulous place. A great chance to get back to nature.

    It's not cheap ... but as with most things in life you get what you pay for.

    The wild camping pitches are amazing, and were for us surprisingly midge free.

    There are just enough by way of facilities in the woods to make it pleasant from a practical point of view.

    The hub facilities which were a 10 minute walk away allowed us to feel like we were not "on a campsite", which is just what we were looking for.

    We'll be back.

    How peaceful it was. The walled garden area was very well kept and provided a safe place for the children to play. The addition of the hut area was a lovely unexpected surprise.
