Alan Rogers Review
A peaceful, friendly small park, suitable as a night stop, Crossburn is on the south side of the A703 road, half a mile north of the town centre. The entrance has a fairly steep slope down to reception and the shop which also sells a very large selection of caravan and camping accessories. Passing the caravans for sale and the holiday homes you might think that this is not the site for you, but persevere as the touring area is very pleasant, with attractive trees and bushes. Of the 40 pitches, all have 16A electricity, 20 have hardstanding and eight are fully serviced. There is also a sheltered area for tents.
If you decide to stay longer, the area has many places to visit and things to do. From historic homes, abbeys, woodland walks, fishing, horse riding, golf and canoeing – it’s all there. Edinburgh is only 40 minutes drive. Perhaps the night halt may turn into a longer visit.
Main toilet block has washbasins in cubicles, free hairdryers and spacious, controllable showers. A second older block has been refurbished. Kitchen (key at reception) with free use of an electric hot plate, kettle and fridge. Shop. Adjacent is a large games room with snooker table and games machines. Good play area on bark chippings. Riverside dog walk. Card operated barrier (£10 deposit). Glamping style wooden camping lodges to rent.
