Disappointing

On the plus side this is a good location for visiting local places of interest such as Cragside- a must see. The pitch was flat and hardstanding which is always good. However there are some negatives. The welcome was anything but warm. On arrival we were greeted by a huge sign saying "Keep off the grass" with another by the service point saying "No parking". I had to go looking for the owners to pay and received a very gruff greeting of "Is that your motorhome on the top? " When i confirmed that it was I was told "You're here for 2 nights then. That'll be £28". The worst part for me though was the chemical waste and grey waste point- yes they are one and the same. It's a flat concrete area with a hole in it where you can see the last bit of waste floating on top, with a very low single brick surround. You need to use the brush provided to sweep your waste into the hole while directing water from the hose to wash it away. Although as I said the remnants float to the top and sit there waiting for the next user. Great care is needed to avoid splashing chemical waste over your feet. A very unpleasant experience. We were very happy to move on to our next stop..

Great CL, we will be back!

We stayed here recently, owners very friendly and we loved the site. All pitches were level which is a bonus, we found the site quiet and very pleasant. We had no problems finding the CL, as it was well sign-posted and no problems with access either. There is a Co-op and a Spar close to a McDonalds within easy walking distance (10 minutes comfortably). There are cash points at the Spar and also outside Sainsbury's. Sainsbury's is about 15 minutes away, we also walked into Alnwick quite a few times as the weather was good, it took us about 35 minutes. Barter Books is a "must visit" too, it's around 30 minutes leisurely walk and has a great restaurant with reasonably priced meals or cake, teas and coffees if you prefer. It's a book lovers dream and the big roaring fires are a delight! We will definitely stay with Mr and Mrs Weddell again and look forward to visiting Alnwick again, it has a nice atmosphere and we found shop staff very friendly indeed. My only minor criticism of the site was when emptying waste water and having to lift over a lip to empty it, as mentioned also by a previous reviewer. But all in all, the site is very well kept and we are glad we found it!

Favourite local CL

This is a great CL, very handy for touring the local area. It’s about a 35 minute walk at a decent pace into Alnwick, where there is lots to see and do. Dogs seem to be particularly welcome in Alnwick, most shops seem to have water bowls outside and many of the pubs and cafes allow dogs inside. There is the most amazing walk directly from the site into a local woodland. Can’t recommend highly enough. CL owners really friendly.

Return visit in the summer (last time winter)

All hardstanding so ideal for winter visits, however they are a bit tight without a caravan mover. Also driving in and out is on the tight side. There is so much to see in the Alnwick area that we came back to see more. I would agree with the review about the annoying lip on the waste water disposal point. Perhaps a ramp could be built up to it? Nice to see it in the summer and go for some walks.
