Why stay here ...

Brandon Ford CL is situated right on the edge of the Northumberland National Park in the Breamish Valley in a quiet and peaceful corner of an otherwise busy, working family farm. The River Breamish is less than 20 metres from the CL and is perfect for paddling or a spot of birdwatching.

The surrounding area is perfect for all kinds of outdoor pursuits particularly walking, cycling and exploring the countryside. 

The Pennine and Sandstone Way cycle routes run past the CL. Over the river is Branton Nature Reserve where there are two large ponds which attract lots of wildlife, there is a bird hide too.

A short distance away in Powburn is a convenience store and post office, and there is a lovely café just one mile further up the valley at Ingram.

Brandon Ford CL is family friendly, and accepts 2 dogs per pitch.

All pitches are hardstanding and have individual EHU, water and grey water drains, all within the hardstand.

Great stay.

Brandon Ford
Great CL. Friendly and very helpful family run site. Location is ideal for walks and cycling. Being there in spring is something special on the farm with all the lambing and calving going on. Ideally located to get to the Northumberland sites of interest. Can’t wait to return. ( not forgetting Jess’s home made specialty food deliveries 👍)

One of our favourite sites

Brandon Ford
There's nothing really to add to what everyone else has said - this place is a gem Its a well kept site in an great location. There are some lovely walks directly from the site and its a good starting point to explore further a field. There is a shop at the petrol station at Powburn 1 Mile away, the Bosk is .5 a mile away by foot and serves food Thursday to Sunday, and Ingram cafe is open every day until 4 and is avout 2 miles away. Would definitely recommend this site.

A simply excellent CL, period!

Brandon Ford
Just spent the last 3 nights here and, (in my humble), the site is superb. The site is easy to find and very well situated for many local attractions, from Newcastle to Berwick-upon-Tweed and all the North East Coast in-between, including Lindisfarne. The Northumberland national parks are all around and if you like astronomy, then the park has an excellent 360 deg vista with fabulously dark skies. OK, now for the site itself. Every pitch is flat and the hard standings are fully serviced, so no need to go out in your slippers in the rain to re fill your water barrel. The site is exceptionally clean, very well maintained and manicured and the gentleman my wife spoke to was very personable and was pleased to help with local knowledge. As has been mentioned, the site is split into West and East fields, holding 5 vans each. At the gate leading from West to East, I noticed that the site also had a trust cabinet which was stocked with a few cookies jam's and grenola, with pricing and a jar for your money, (a simple but nice touch). If you do have dogs, the site is on a working sheep farm and for obvious reasons it is important to keep them on leads. However as previously stated, there are ample walks right out the gate. If your dog/s love water, as does ours, then the ford across the river is 2 minutes walk, excellent for letting them have a plodge. There is a large lake approx 10 mins walk, with a footpath right round, its part of a nature reserve, excellent if your a keen photographer. Would I recommend the place, i'm reluctant to say, because i want to be able to get booked for the next time, lol. But absolutely! Yeah I would....... Kind regards, Kevin and Ann

What a little gem

Brandon Ford
What an awesome little gem of a place this is. Stayed just one night but we wished it had been longer. The site has a west side and an east side. We were on the west side and had lovely views of the hills and surrounding areas. By the way, do venture out of the site as right on its doorstep is the most amazing nature reserve surrounding a lake which you can walk right around. The site is situated right near the river Breamish and to get to the nature reserve just cross over the little footbridge right outside the site. Honesty box is full of homemade delights from the owners, easy access to and from the site and oh, and did I mention the dark skies? get out in the dark and LOOK UP!.. When we visited, Lady Aurora was dancing in the night sky which was a bonus to our stay. In the morning as we were about to leave, we discovered that our Motorhome would not start, Callum the site owner came to the rescue sorting us out with a jump a start that got us back on the road, so friendly and helpful and which was greatly appreciated. We will return and most definitely will recommend the site to others.

Best CL we have stayed at

Brandon Ford
We booked to stay here for 5 nights, having stayed previously at the River Breamish Club Site and loved the area. This is a very tidy well run CL. With all fully serviced hardstanding pitches. There are many great walks of all abilities directly from the site, with the Brandon Ponds nature reserve right next door. There is a good shop at the petrol Station at Powburn 1 Mile away. Can't fault the site. We would certainly return.
