Blackadder Caravan Parks
Blackadder holiday park sits within fifteen acres of manicured grassland, in the foothills of the Lammermuir Hills. Centrally situated in the village of Greenlaw, just 37 miles South of Edinburgh.
The site takes its name from the local river which meanders through its centre. Blackadder Water, and the wildlife it supports, are the star attractions here and, our riverside pitches provide the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the view.
The Caravan Park is Designated by Scottish Natural Heritage as a special area of conservation (SSSI ) noted as supporting the presence of Atlantic Salmon, Otters, Sea, River and Brook Lamperey, all threatened species in a European context.
Herons frequently feed from the river, and Otters are occasionally spotted frolicking on the banks and in the water.

More About Blackadder
The Blackadder Holiday Park is ideally situated for touring the Scottish Borders. The Border towns of Kelso, Melrose, Peebles, and Duns are all within easy striking distance of the site, as are the famous castles and gardens of Mellerstain, Floors, Traquair, Thirlestane and Abbotsford – the home of Sir Walter Scott.
The nearby Rhymer’s Stone marks the site of the Eildon Tree under which, legend says, Thomas the Rhymer met the Fairie Queen and was spirited away. When he returned, he had gained the gift of prophecy and the inability to tell a lie. Today, the Rhymer’s Stone is visited as a viewpoint from where there are excellent views of Leaderfoot and the summit of Black Hill.
Our varied regional landscape allows all types of cyclist to enjoy their favourite terrain: fast downhill off-road stretches, strenuous road climbs, or relatively flat country lanes for all the family. Mountain-bikers also enjoy the thrills, and possibly spills, to be had at Glentress Forest, near Peebles.
