Lovely CL

Spacious and tidy CL in a well maintained field. Warm welcome from Mr Charlton who helped us (3 children aged 7, 5 and 3 and 2 adults) discover more of the fantastic local area. When we stayed it was very wet so we had slight difficulty getting off site. Only slight gripe, a but expensive for no wc. Would still stay here again if back in area.

Friendly Welcome

Very friendly welcome to site, flat pitches and easy access to local attractions. It's a shame the coffee shop recommended by other visitors no longer exists.

Exactly whate CL's should be like.

The title says it all really ….. a fantastic CL run by a lovely friendly family. This CL has so much appeal!! The site is well kept with the grass always kept neat. The coffee shop adds a dimension and it is nice to see the cyclists and other visitors pull up for their well earned refreshments . The pitches are a good size and the amenities are adequate. John run's the booking system very well and always responds to enquiries. This site will be busy on many weekends because as well as being a great CL it is situated close to the fantastic NT Wallington Hall (take your bikes if you have kids) and Bolam Lake. If you are not local to the North East then the site is an ideal spot to visit Newcastle, Alnwick or anywhere in the North East really. One area that could be improved is the chemical disposal point . It is adequate but a bit close to the coffee shop. I am sure this could be done relatively easily. We have visited twice this year already and we will definitely return again as I said this is what a CL should be like and many CL owners would do well to take a look and follow the example of this CL Thanks John and Kathleen and we will see you again Jim and Isabel Hall

A Little Gem

Lovely CL, very warm welcome from John & Louise, who are always on-hand to help or ask any advice or questions ref the beautiful local area/walks etc. Spacious, easy to level pitches and good amenities on site. The Stables coffee shop on site is a delight and well-used by cyclists, walkers and returners. We have returned 3 times over the last 12 months and will continue again & again & again. A little piece of relaxing and exploring heaven to us! Thank you.

A piece of heaven in Northumberland

We have just returned from a two week stay at this site, the second time we have been there. We cannot rate this site highly enough, being a very pleasant rural CL with wonderful views over the Northumberland hills and yet quite close to all the amenities you may need (( a very comprehensively stocked shop is only two miles away). The grass is kept well cut and the field is more level than most CL's I have been on with no problem in finding a level area to pitch on. We enjoy all the walking that can be done straight from the site as well as visiting a National Trust house less than three miles away. John and his family make you feel very welcome, nothing is too much trouble, and to cap it all, at weekends, there is a fantastic coffee shop on site!
