Wonderful small campsite with limited spaces. The pitches are mainly in a beautiful walled garden. There is a covered 'hub should you need to eat when raining. Unfortunately it did rain. You get a fire pit too so you can barbecue away. Two small issues- showers were brilliant but a tad too hot especially if you had younger children. Also feel that number of toilets could be higher- 3 female toilets for whole camp. Facilities were beautifully clean though. The checking in process was straightforward and there are plenty of staff to guide you. All in all a great experience. PS bring midge repellent!

Ruberslaw was recommended by several sets of friends and didn’t disappoint. We stayed in the Walled Garden, a stunning setting for any camping trip. The staff were friendly and welcoming and happy to help on the few occasions we had any questions. Writing in May 2021, it’s worth pointing out that the Covid controls on the campsite were second to none. A lot of thought and effort had been put in providing sanatiser stations in common areas, good ventilation and online booking/site information. We’ll definitely be back. Thanks

We stayed in Red Squirrel Ride safari tent for 3 nights early October and so lucky with the weather. The tent is in the woods with views of the fields and Ruberslaw hill. It is a good 15 minute walk to the tent from the hub and your kit is transported for you as included in the safari tent price. The best tips I can give is bring head torches and pack as light as possible. There are 2 gas hobs in the kitchen area so cooking in pots and pans only. There is a calor gas heater inside the tent and an open fire pit outside. It did not rain during our stay so the fire pit was blaring every night. The showers at the hub are spotless clean and lovely and warm. The staff here are so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Just booked again for next year and can’t wait!

Having stayed previously with a large group of friends, this time was a family trip with our four-year-old. We stayed in the Woodland Escape safari tent, nicely close to the hub but still feeling remote and isolated. It’s like having your own forest for the whole weekend, and our son loved it! We got the odd lost camper wandering up the path so didn’t feel too alone (the other campers were all lovely with kids around our son’s age) and there’s a gate into the sheep pastures behind, which gave our boy ample chance to chat with the very friendly farmer! After kiddie bedtime, we lit the fire and enjoyed a glass or two as night fell. It was clearly a busy weekend at the site, but up in our tent we didn’t really notice, and the staff are, as ever, just lovely. I booked two nights and really wish I’d booked more. Ruberslaw is just the perfect place. Next time we’ll stay longer.

Absolutely fantastic campsite. It was busy because of so many people on staycation at the moment, but everyone still had plenty of space thanks to the terraced campsite layout and somehow the toilet/shower facilities never felt overwhelmed. The walled garden and nearby trees offers great protection from wind and also a helpful way of containing youngsters. This is one of those campsites that is stocked with everything you could need (a shop selling firewood, charcoal, food and drink, a communal microwave, kettle, freezer, etc) and that is kept impeccably clean. From the campsite you're able to take a range of walks, including straight up Ruberslaw itself. Also you can expect to enjoy seeing all kinds of farm animals and wildlife. It's well connected by road to the borders area and even Edinburgh, whilst having the tranquility of being off the beaten track. We would definitely return and perhaps even try out a safari tent. Thank you!
