really lovely site

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.

can't wait to go again

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

Fantastic views but don't follow the directions!

Spent 11 nights here in October and the views are fantastic. However, the directions to the site bring you through the centre of Alnwick and through the Hotspur Tower, which is probably not a good idea when towing a full size caravan. Luckily, I always check the routes to a site on Google maps, so found an alternative. When we told Mike about it, he said that the Club wrote the directions and, despite him informing them a couple of times, they have failed to correct it. There was peace and quiet most of the time, but if Mike went out without his sheepdogs, they spent a lot of the time barking, not ideal! The toilet disposal is into a pipe in the ground not much bigger than the tube on the toilet, so you had to be very careful to make sure you got it into the pipe every time, it could be with being improved! Other than those niggles, our stay was good, there are a lot of walks, but some are overgrown or through fields full of animals, so care is needed.

Very Good CL

Stayed a few nights in August and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Busy working farmer but always available on mobile. Some sloping sites on left of field on entering but easily rectified with blocks if necessary. Good water supply and waste disposal and plenty of hook-ups. Pleasant walking mostly on narrow lane from site - some footpaths but not used in places and overgrown or through fields with cows and calves. Would be happy to stay again.

Great CL in Beautiful Spot

Lovely view all around this well kept site, quiet except for birds and lambs in the next field, which was great for us.   Wonderful fresh eggs from the farm.  Lots of wildlife.  Drove to Seahouses to get boat to Farne Islands and saw the Puffins and Seals, excellent day.  Berwick on Tweed is lovely, walked around the Bastions, good views.  Thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights stay in May.
