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 Penine 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 cafe just one mile further up the valley at Ingram.

Brandon Ford CL is dog and family friendly, with 4 hardstanding pitches and a large area for grass pitches. All pitches have EHU, water and individual grey water drains.

Top Class CL

Immaculate CL. Grass cut prior to our arrival & once during our stay clippings collected. Fully serviced hard standing level pitches that are Excellent for walking with or without a dog direct from site. Also excellent for cycling direct from site. Easy access and directions. If you need it 4g signal (EE) was good as is TV signal. Recycling on site including bins for BBQ ashes. Free range eggs for sale when available. Cameron very welcoming & not intrusive. If you like peace & quiet this CL is ideal. Seeing how busy the site was I would say advance booking is essential. Website was informative but for those that don’t have it perhaps an information area would be beneficial. Thanks for an enjoyable stay. Next time we are in Northumberland we will be checking in with you.

Exactly what a CL should be

Just back from a 3 night stay at Brandon Ford CL. This site has level hardstanding pitches, each with their own water, drainage and EHU, The site is very well maintained with cut grass and well managed bins/recycling and waste disposal. Access is easy as the road between the site and main road is still quite wide. The area itself is excellent for walking/Cycling and visiting the surrounding area. It is in my opinion what a CL should be in that it is quiet, rural, essential services, without adding unnecessary extras. I would recommend this site to anyone visiting the Northumberland/Alnwick area, and would like to return to explore some more.

Perfect

I can’t think of a bad thing to say about this site. Each pitch was hardstanding and fully serviced. The views were amazing, and the site’s presentation was immaculate. We had a long bike ride into Wooler but there are more local rides as well as beautiful walks nearby. As I say, perfect.

What a gem

We stayed here in early July 2020 immediately after sites reopened. We had stayed at the Club site nearby previously and once when out walking from there we noticed this site and it looked so attractive we decided that we would like to visit it, even though it had no toilet/shower and we have in the past preferred sites which have such facilities. However, in the new post-lockdown situation, we decided to rely on our own facilities which is made easier if the pitches are fully serviced which all are here. The pitches are on a grass field which is regularly cut and very attractive - it looks like a garden. All the pitches are well spaced out and level or near level with a gravel base ( completely free of weeds ). The site is superbly placed for walks straight from the site. The River Breamish is literally just outside the site and great for dogs to paddle around in. The road outside the site leads westwards up the Ingram valley which is very attractive but there is a superb walk straight from the site northwards on the Northumberland Sandstone Trail - see Northumberland County Council’s website for details of it - into completely peaceful rolling hills.
