Escape before lockdown Mk2!

Very friendly welcome from Mr Charlton who was always happy to chat and help out if necessary. Good site, lovely views. Facilities all very convenient and easy to use. Good centre for visiting a number of local attractions. Despite torrential rain during night(s) we had no trouble at all getting on or off the site. We parked our car on the entrance driveway to avoid damaging the grass and to avoid potential problems. Our 5 night stay during storm Aidan and just before the 2nd Covid lockdown was most relaxing.

A great site for a peaceful holiday

We stayed for 7 nights at the end of August (2020). We had a friendly welcome from the site owner who was very helpful in every aspect of our stay. The site is very clean and well kept. It is surrounded by lovely countryside with some great National Trust properties to visit nearby. Overall, it is a great site for a peaceful holiday. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend this site for a countryside holiday.

Great site

Stayed for 5 nights after the site was reopened after the lockdown, very friendly welcome and the site was in good condition. Relaxing time with easy access to Bolam Lake, (just a 2 min drive) and great for walking the dog

A beautiful CL

Our stay 11/8/2020 to 19/8/2020. Good roads on approach to the site easy access onto site well sign posted. On arrival a great reception from John who made us most welcome. John and family very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. The site is reasonable flat, easy to pitch, grass well maintained, drains quite well after a few down pours. Gate and taps cleaned daily. Bins emptied every day. No issues with electric, never tripped out. Chemical waste point located on the field with easy access and all on one level. Definitely recommend a stay here. We will certainly be back at some point in the future.

Slightly disappointed

We recently spent 8 nights on this site and unfortunately it didn't quite live up to our expectations after reading other reviews. Despite the site being approx an acre in size the pitches were all along one side which was also the lowest point and after a days rain the area behind our van resembled a quagmire. The grass although cut was still long enough to cover our shoes and not that tidy. Added to this we were unfortunate enough to have a family of 7 , yes seven, in one caravan on the pitch next to us over the weekend. By the time they left both my wife and I and our dog were left traumatised by the experience so peaceful and tranquil it was not. On the plus side the site is fairly well situated for visiting either the Northumberland countryside or the coast.
