    I can attest that Kirkfield campsite in Town Yetholm is superb in all respects.
    Small but perfectly formed. Spotless shower and loos. Very handy for two good pubs and a village shop.
    £10/night for smaller tent ... utter bargain.

    Ask for pitch 14. (In the corner under the trees)

    These little gems are good to know about. I hate big commercial sites.

    It's only one pitch but you could get a couple of bikes and tents on it, out of the way in the corner.
    You just need to be aware of the shop opening hours, its not 24 hours
    Good for vans as well

    Which pub did you prefer Dave?

    Both good but very different.
    I think I preferred the Plough. It's a bit rougher but I generally prefer to drink where the locals drink.

    Sounds like I should have gone there with the Himalayan rather than Kielder! I'll bet the midges were fewer or even non existent?

    Usually travelling I've used and can recommend...

    Bruce's Cave Caravan & Camping Park at Lockerbie

    Lauder Camping and Caravanning Club Site at Lauder (obviously)

    Bellingham Camping and Caravanning Club Site at Hexham.

    All the above charge around £10 for a biker.

    Ive used these several times, and i will be at Lauder again in 2 weeks
    the Lauder site has a large pub at the entrance that does great food
