Situated right on the Scottish Border, Chainbridge Camping and Caravan Site is the ideal base from which to explore this historic and beautiful part of the world.

berwick upon tweedThe nearby town of Berwick upon Tweed is a real gem for the lover of history and architecture. Fought over for centuries by the English and Scottish monarchy because of its valuable port on the River Tweed, the town is now “Officially” part of England – although you’ll tend to hear a distinctly Scottish accent on the streets.

The coastline here is dramatic – with rugged cliffs and small islands. A little way up the coast is St Abbs Head, A National Nature Reserve and a must dive spot for scuba divers.

The nearby Scottish Border towns of Kelso, Coldstream, Melrose and Jedburgh are all within easy traveling distance. As is the Scottish capital of Edinburgh with it’s plethora of shops, restaurants and galleries.

alnwick castleStaying on the English side brings the delights of the ancient county of Northumberland. Startling beach vistas with miles of golden sandy beaches. More castles and fortified houses than any other English county including those of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Warkworth and Alnwick. As well as some spectacular attractions such as The Alnwick Garden, Cragside House and Gardens and the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall.

The campsite is situated just on the River Tweed which makes it ideal for keen anglers (or committed paddlers!) and the Chain Bridge Honey Farm visitor centre is just down the road.
