Just spent four nights at Holmside and would describe the site as excellent. Local shops in Gosforth are only 20 mins walk with a lovely beer garden in the Gosforth Hall Hotel. There is a breakfast menu available with afternoon teas delivered to your pitch and we experienced a horse riding display. Local produce is available in the information summer house with books and games to borrow and the best toilet and shower facilities we have yet experienced. Their 2 border collies and 5 horses were a delight. The owners were friendly and very helpful. Definitely be back! Thank you!
