Quiet and Peaceful Site

Longriggthorn
We stayed 5 nights at Longriggthorn during our walking of Hadrian’s Wall. We had it to ourselves for the whole time! The site is accessed down a lane, but it’s mostly straight with places to pass other vehicles. A lovely mown grass site surrounded by hedges and some trees. A quick walk round the site to find the water point and the toilet disposal point (behind a hedge in the corner). No swarms of flies in July and it was very warm. Chris, the owner is very friendly and helpful. Brampton is a few minutes drive away for essentials and eating places. Hadrian’s wall is less than a mile away. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful site away from it all then this is a great place.

Lovely quiet field with plenty of wild flowers

Longriggthorn
Welcomed as we arrived as friendly owner cutting the grass. Good views, trees and hedges but open aspect. Toilet emptying in top left hand corner as you enter, near style. Not obvious as hidden behind hedge. No swarms of flies at end of May. Very quiet. Part sloping, we did not need ramps. Now £7, still good value compared with similar sites.

Quiet peaceful site

Longriggthorn
Friendly welcome from the owners on arrival. Wide access gate and plenty of space in the field. Could be difficult to manoeuvre in wet conditions. It was very quiet and peaceful all the time we were there and we had no problem with flies in mid July. We did a good circular walk from the site which took us along some of the Hadrian’s Wall path. Don’t use post code to find this site, it takes you some distance away.

Rural and peaceful

Longriggthorn

We were looking for a local non EHU site to test our new caravan so decided to explore the local CL sites prior to our stay in the next week or so. During our travels we met the lovely owner of Longriggthorn who was extremely friendly. So much so, we actually decided to stay the following day for a couple of nights. As we could arrive any time we were there around 10 am. It is a lovely, tranquil, spacious CL site with nice country walks. Unfortunately, we were plagued by flies which sadly shortened our stay and, as a result, we returned home the following morning. There was only one other caravan there who was positioned next to the hedge on their first night but the following morning moved their caravan to the centre of the field in an attempt to alleviate the problem with the flies. They did say they had visited the site before and had not experienced any problems previously. (Suggest this may be a rare occurrence.) We would definately consider revisiting the site at perhaps a different time of year as excellent value at £6.00 per night.
