Our Story

Told by owner Chris Gregg

Our vision of re-establishing a caravan park for Coldstream finally became a reality last year. Twenty-three years ago, I realised that one of Scotland’s most iconic towns did not have a Caravan Park.

We were finally able to pursue this vision two years ago and I am absolutely thrilled that Coldstream Holiday Park was given the green light. As experienced Berwickshire operators, who have successfully run Blackadder Holiday Park in Greenlaw for the past 25 years, we were naturally delighted to get the go ahead for a new holiday park for Coldstream.

This major new tourism development, which consists of holiday caravans, luxury lodges, touring pitches and a range of new glamping accommodation, enjoys a stunning riverside location looking south towards the Cheviot Hills.

Our exciting development had the unanimous backing of local councillors, but the decision was a long time in the making. Local councillor Donald Moffat first spoke with me about the benefit of re-establishing a caravan/camping site for Coldstream in 1997.

And the views of local people were sought, resulting in a town action plan which strongly recommended the need to re-establish a park being presented to Scottish Borders Council.  With the kind support of Jill and Colin McGregor of McGregor Farms, a suitable site was identified two years ago.

We are working with Historic Environment Scotland to evaluate, preserve and promote a semi circular crop marked feature likely to be an iron age settlement “of late-prehistoric or early-historic date”, visible on aerial photographs of the site. This is scheduled as a prehistoric domestic and defensive settlement by HES, of national importance. To create an asset for Coldstream, in a unique and positive way: “The association with the Regiment, its heritage and culture, places Coldstream as a world famous Flagship town for Scotland.”

We look forward to building a vibrant 21st century business which will encourage many, many visitors to visit and return to this lovely and unique Border town.

Green Credentials

Our touring Caravan, Static Caravan, Glamping and Camping Pitches are laid so as to reduce the visual impact and orientated to fit the natural slope of the site. This creates a highly attractive parkland setting within a high quality location, near to the River Tweed, the Hirsel Garden and designed landscape. This was borne from a landscape and visual appraisal, tailored around the general principles of a master plan, so as to provide a high quality development that ‘fits’ into the local townscape and respects the landscape setting.

With layers of woodland, structural, specimen tree and shrub planting: Our landscape framework creates pockets of pitches allowing caravans and tents to be readily absorbed and linked through a thoughtfully screened range of formal and informal open spaces.

The Landscape Framework Soft Landscaping Schedule consists of :

LOW WOODLAND MIX to sections of the Eastern border and the central open corridor

WOODLAND EDGE MIX to the inner East and North boundary and inner sections of the central open corridor

AVENUE / STREET / FOCAL TREES, STRUCTURE TREES & ORNAMENTAL SHRUBS

In addition to general grassland there will be amenity grassland and areas managed as wildflower grassland around the scheduled ancient monument.

Planning for
Ecological Harmony

Ecology surveys have been carried out by an Ecologist, with over 30 years professional experience in researching, assessing & evaluating Scottish ecological data.

Desk-top data collation & field surveys have been carried out consisting of a habitat survey of European and UK protected species. This included a daytime roost risk assessment for bats and incidental wildlife recording e.g. birds and invasive non-native species. Any required buffers for otter, water vole and badgers etc. will be catered for.

Beetle banks, runs of wild nettles & brambles, bird, bat and owl boxes, ‘bee bricks’ and other insect homes, will be strategically placed.

Low level lighting is preferred to minimise glare to aid night sky viewing.

“We appreciate the value of the park for wildlife and follow environmental legislation and approved codes of practice. Consider the environmental impact of all current and likely future operations. Monitor and control pollution and waste produced and the consumption of all raw materials. Invest in training in environmental matters.”
