A Warm Welcome and a lovely stay!

Potland Farm Cottage
Access is very easy, hard standing pitches for the car and caravan/motorhome, with well mown/drained grass for the awning with plenty of space between pitches. Lovely outlook onto open fields. Access to a WC but no showers. (as stated in site details) Mike is a very friendly owner who has time for all of his guests, he has plenty of knowledge of the surrounding area & ideas of where to visit, he even provided a map. Lovely free range chickens wandering around the site. The weather was lovely while we were there. Northumberland has so much to see, we stayed for 5 nights, we visited Walkington, Cragside, Holy Island (check tides!) Bamburgh, Druridge Country Park & Druridge Bay which has miles of beautiful beach to walk your dog! There is a woodland path quite near the site which takes you towards The Plough Inn in the nearby village, (approx 1.5 miles - 40 minutes stroll with a sniffy Beagle), we didn’t eat there but the food looked good & there’s a nice beer garden. We’ll certainly be back for another visit soon! Well recommended!

Love spot in beautiful countryside

Potland Farm Cottage
We spent 3 days here last weekend and it was a very relaxing place to stay. The toilet was very clean. The owners were lovely and Mike couldn’t have been more helpful when we developed a problem first with our caravan and then with our car. We’d definitely go again.

Peace and quiet in lovely surroundings

Potland Farm Cottage
We were here for five nights just after the site opened post the strict Covid lockdown. Primarily to spend some time near to our daughter, we were pleasantly surprised by the natural beauty of the area around the site and the far reaching views across farmland from our pitch. Immaculately presented, the site and facilities were spotlessly clean with good supplies of hand wash and wipes which we found reassuring. Kind and caring owners as others have found along with the very friendly hens. Access around the site to nearby areas including Newcastle and Tynemouth are easy as the road network is excellent. We cycled into nearby Newbiggin from the site one day and while you are on busy main roads much of the way, it still felt safe enough for adults but I wouldn't do it with children. Morpeth was a real gem, only visited because it was so close and we'd never been before, we will certainly return. Very tempting to stay much longer, a relaxing and rejuvenating break in a great setting, we will hopefully be back.

Very friendly welcome on arrival from owners Mike & Sam who proudly maintain this immaculate site (one of the best in Northumberland). Extremely easy access to site from very tow-friendly roads Excellent and safe exercise area for our energetic dog and Mike kindly printed-out a map of local dog walks close to the site for us to explore. Lovely spacious, level hard-standing pitches with good amenities on site. Excellent location for exploring Northumberland's beautiful offerings - beaches, walks, castles and scenery etc. Ian, Rachel & (Peggy the dog)

Excellent three night stay.

Potland Farm Cottage
We recently spent three nights in our motorhome at this lovely CL with our two springer spaniels. Communication prior to arrival was great and the directions to the site were spot on. On arrival we topped up with water which is easily accessed whilst still on the roadway and then parked up on our hardstanding. The views across the fields are lovely and there is an amazing, huge exercise area adjacent for the all important morning and last thing at night dog exercise. Mike gave us some leaflets and spent time explaining about local walks. A recent reviewer said this CL is not great for dogs as you need to walk along the road. I couldn't disagree more! Yes, you have to walk a short distance up the road but it's a very quiet road and the verges are very wide to enable you to get out of the way of the odd vehicle if you need to. After that there is a brilliant 'round robin' walk most of which can be done off lead. We also walked from the site, across the fields to a fabulous beach and then had a meal at the local (dog friendly) pub on the way back. This is a very good CL for dogs! 4G and TV signals were both excellent. We met Mike, his lovely wife Sam and their delightful son who were all extremely friendly and helpful.
