A wonderful site

Shipley Smallburns Farm
We aren't usually bothered about having electricity, but this site was exactly where we wanted to go. What is lovely is that there are no regimented rows or hardstandings. You can pitch where you want, obviously showing courtesy to other users. For those worried about grass length, the whole site was cut very short. Plenty of room for five caravans/motorhomes and a neatly fenced-off waste disposal, with the water tap a little further away. The turn into it is sharp, but easily manageable by small to medium outfits and motorhomes. Within easy reach of Alnwick with its superb castle. There are places to eat there, and an out of town centre with various supermarkets. Not far to drive to Craster, Dunstanburgh and other coastal delights, with plenty of coastal paths and cycling routes. Cragside is another fascinating place within easy reach. A little further to the Cheviots with all the walking and cycling which can be done there. The views of those from the site are rather lovely. Very, very peaceful. The farmer was welcoming and friendly. Really recommend this site as a sheer delight.

Very welcoming with Peaceful tranquil views

Shipley Smallburns Farm

Just been for a second time had another great holiday. Mr Coxon is very friendly and welcoming, he leaves people to enjoy their holiday but is always friendly to chat to if you see him around. The site is away from the main road so is peaceful from noise with great views of rolling country side, with great walks around the area as well as great locations to visit only a short drive away The field is well maintained with the grass is always kept tidy.

Looking forward to going back in the future Andrew and Kirsty

Excellent

Shipley Smallburns Farm
Very peaceful and restful 5 nights spent on this site in August 2020, 1st time out this year. Friendly welcome on arrival from Mr. Coxon. Good 16 Amp EHU so boss lady had no problems with hairdryer. Field well kept, grass cut neat and tidy, slightly undulating but ramps soon sorted that. Only 1 issue, (and in no way do I criticise site owners with this comment), which was a dog owner not keeping their dog under control, the dog came running toward me, jumping up, thing was when dog owner eventually came out of their caravan to see what fuss was about she didn't appear to be at all concerned, really good thing it didn't happen to my wife as she is petrified of dogs and would have been screaming. Dog owners please remember not everyone wants to play with your dog, if you don't wish to keep them on a lead at least please keep an eye on them so they are under your control. Having said that it really didn't spoil our stay and we would certainly return to this CL. Thank You for a well kept site in a beautiful part of the country.

really lovely site

Shipley Smallburns Farm
This is a lovely, quiet site with wonderful views across the Northumberland hills. It's very spaciuis with grass that is kept is a good state. I agree with all that has been said about the site with the exception of the nit-picking comment about the waste disposal point being "a hole in the ground". It is a perfectly acceptable waste point - this is a CL, not a CAMC site! If you want a great site on a Northumbrian working farm - this is for you. We,ve just had 10 wonderful days here.

Shipley Smallburns Farm

We came to this site as we had always wanted to visit the area and oh boy we we weren't disappointed absolutely loved the site and the chance to see such a beautiful coast line.Bamburgh ,Warkworth Alnwick and Lindisfarne in fact we were all castled out !!! The beaches were amazing all along the coast .Stopped at Alnmouth and Amble where there is the best seafood restaurant called the old beachhouse so good we went twice,of course had fish n chips at Seahouses the neptune,the one place we couldn't get inn was the treehouse at Alnwick castle gardens .Needless to say we are both on diets now.The site has plenty of space with no traffic noise and is well kept.The direction we used (google earth road ) got off at denwick straight over from the slip road to Eglingham just past the old stables tea room roundabout follow b6341 berwick past a plant hobberlaw plants on left 100 yds turn left into smiley lane only a short distance turn right at end on to b6346 go past riding stables on right a short distance turn at sign Shipley Small burn .hope you have a good a hols as we did
