Gilsland Caravan Park is situated in the pretty Scottish harbour town of North Berwick in East Lothian and offers a family friendly and relaxing camping and caravanning site for all ages. Caravan Park offers holiday home ownership for those who fancy having their very own bolt hole by the seaside and also a choice of holiday accommodation from our luxury and fully equipped rental caravans to our unique and fun camping cabins.
Gilsland offers you the opportunity to enjoy and share wonderful holidays and time away with family and friends making memories that will stay with you for a lifetime. Our luxury modern caravans are fully fitted with all modern conveniences to provide you with all the home from home facilities you require. We have both 2 bedroomed holiday homes sleeping up to 6 and 3 bedroomed holiday homes, sleeping up to 8 available. Our 2 bedroomed holiday homes have either a double bedroom and a twin or some have 2 double rooms. Our 3 bedroomed holiday homes have a double and 2 twin rooms. Both 2 and 3 bedroomed holiday homes also have additional sleeping in the lounge.
The trend for glamping or "posh camping" is on the increase and we are sure you won't be disappointed in Gilsland's unique take on the camping pod. Our cosy cabins sleep up to 4 people with a double bed and a set of children's bunk beds. Inside and out they offer more luxury and convenience than their competitor "the wigwam". They are equipped with lots of luxurious little extras that you wouldn’t take when camping and there is also plenty of storage for food and clothes. Other little extras include a kettle, toaster, radio, TV and DVD player.
Outside is your private, decked area, where you can enjoy al fresco cooking and dining. From your deck you will enjoy magnificent sunsets over Fidra and the Firth of Forth. There is also a play area close to the cabins allowing parents to supervise kids playing whilst relaxing on the deck and enjoying the views.
We also have Puffin Lodge our fabulous new self catering accommodation complete with your very own hot tub. It sleeps up to 6 people and provides a perfect base for either a family holiday or golfing get away.
Two serene sofas, a traditional cream electric wood burning stove and a wooden coffee table trunk, makes the Lounge at Puffin Lodge the perfect place for putting your feet up after an invigorating day exploring the beaches and countryside of East Lothian. A cushioned armchair set in the corner is the perfect place to get lost in a book or simply sit, French doors wide open and enjoy views of the Firth of Forth and beyond to the Lomond Hills. The large open plan dining room beckons family and friends to gather round enjoying a feast or a game of monopoly or trivial pursuit. With its rustic cedar clad wall the kitchen is beautiful, sociable and fully equipped to cater for a romantic meal for two or a family feast, with all the necessary appliances to make life easy. The master bedroom has a king size bed, bedside cabinets and a dressing table, a walkthrough wardrobe area leads into the En suite shower room. The second and third bedrooms are fitted with two single 3' wooden bedsteads, bedside tables and wardrobes. Please request at the time of booking how you would like the 3rd bedroom made up - choose from 2 x twins or a king size bed. The family bathroom has a full sized bath with a shower where you can soak and relax
North Berwick is an attractive and bustling seaside town, with safe, sandy beaches with rock pools and a yachting pond which make for great family days out. The castles of Tantallon, Dirleton and Hidden Hailes are all there for the exploring. For those seeking a relaxing retreat you will not beat the quiet walking available along the coast and the countryside through sleeping picturesque villages or rambling through the Lammermuir Hills. Golf enthusiasts will be spoiled for choice with the number of golf courses, from the new modern golf courses and clubhouses to the old, steeped in history - all with fantastic views. For the energetic and adventurous, East Lothian is great for all sorts of cycling, water sports, sailing, surfing, wind surfing and diving.
With all this on your doorstep, you may rarely feel the need to leave North Berwick or East Lothian but for those of you who also like to explore the bright lights of Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh is a mere 30 minute train journey which will take you straight into the heart of Edinburgh.
