Home grown organic eggs are usually available on-site too. The site enjoys excellent 4G mobile phone network coverage – Ofcom lists it as full 4G coverage on EE, O2, Vodafone and Three.

The location is an ideal base providing easy access to explore the Northumbrian Coast and Countryside direct from your door with direct access onto to the Northumberland Coastal Route which passes the site and makes a good walking or cycle route to local attractions including several listed below.

For other shopping and leisure needs Berwick upon Tweed (15 miles) and Alnwick (17 miles) are vey good, both can be reached directly via the A1 Trunk Road.

Great Site & Location

Easington Farm
Booking was easy via email and arrival was self check in with payment via the envelopes provided to pay cash or by bank transfer. A few days before we had received an email letting us know which pitch we had been allocated. We were on pitch 5 which was ideal as it was a little away from the other pitches so very private. This pitch came with 2 choices of where to pitch. The views were beautiful, despite having a road between us and the beach. There was very little noise from the road. The owner provides lots of walks on their website but unfortunately we tried twice and were unable to find the coastal path. However there were great views from the walks around the farms and the coastal path was easily picked up with a short drive. The chemical point was not the best we’ve used but it was sufficient. The best part about this site is its location. We walked from Budle Bay to Bamburgh, Bamburgh to Seahouses and around Holy Island. This is definitely a site we will return to.

Lovely site and owner

Easington Farm
We had the choice of any pitch. Pitch was completely level so we had no need to do anything but stop. Great view of Lindisfarne in the distance. Well located for visiting Lindisfarne and Bamburgh castle Our last night happened to be that of Storm Arwen so it felt more like being in a small boat in the Atlantic than a motorhome and we certainly didn't get any sleep but our first two nights were peaceful and pleasant. Owner was pleasant and helpful. We couldn't fault it.

Could be better

Easington Farm
As some other reviews have said the pitches could be better we were on pitch number 1 which was made up of large stones so we had to go right to the edge to put our porch awning up which put us too close to the next caravan as it happened they didn't have an awning up and put their car on the other side, we also spoke to another caravaner who also had problems putting his awning up as the ground at the side was higher than the hardstanding as were several other pitches, there is also no lighting if you need to empty your water or toilet at night, the site is lovely for views and ideal if you are not putting an awning up, also the access is very good.

Would I visit this site again? -YES!

Easington Farm
Would I visit this site again? YES. and I intend to do so next year. It is a very well kept site, very quiet with lovely views of Lindisfarne and close to Bamburgh Castle. No hassle from the owner, in fact we never saw him. Paid for our stay over the internet or could have left the pitch fees in a honesty box on site. How many places are left in the UK were you could do that? One slight word of advice - If you intend to pitch an awning, place your caravan on the hardstanding almost at the edge on the grass. We failed to do this and found that when trying to knock our awing pegs into the gravel, it was very deep aggregate and the pegs had nowhere to grip. We subsequently had to reposition our caravan right at the edge of the hardstanding. This in no way spoilt our stay but it would have been good to realise before we started. Hence this not a criticism but a word of advice to others. Overall a very enjoyable place to stay and we will be back.

Perfect Location.

Easington Farm
Firstly the good bits. The views from the pitches are superb looking out towards Lindisfarne and Budle Bay. It's nice to have both electric hook up and water at the pitch, the grass was cut short and cuttings collected. Very peaceful even though you are just a short distance from the road. The location is ideal for visiting the superb north Northumberland coast and Lindisfarne. The waste, recycling and chemical disposal facilities were more than adequate. Communication was good and I was contacted by e-mail four weeks ahead of our arrival with our pitch allocation. Now the "maybe" not so good bits. Yes if you were on pitches 4,5 or 6 six then you would struggle with an awning, we were on pitch 4 and only had a canopy so it wasn't an issue for us. At times there were 6 vans/motorhomes on site but only for the odd night so didn't find it a problem. While the access to the shepherds huts are between pitches 4 and 5 there was very little movement in and out which never bothered us and I think previous comments were nit picking! I also agree that the hardstanding's were not perfectly level but I've been on far worse. So if I were contemplating another holiday in the area would I return to this CL? I would have to say yes as the positives far outweigh the negatives.
