Motorhomer - perfect for Holy island

A long drive in along road with lots of potholes. Parked up behind barn so if views important to you this might not be for you. Perfect overnight stop for us very close to the causeway to Holy island so you can make the most of a day visit here. Although quite close to mainline railway no disturbance at night. Notice up on arrival telling us where to park, had paid by card on booking. Didn't see anyone other than other visitors but only there overnight. Facilities all easy to find and use.

Nice site

Lovely site, very easy to find, private Drive to it but well kept. Covid precautions taken, toilet available, clean tidy, level hardstanding, 5 mins from the lindisfarne road, we cycled across from site and a sustrans path there to avoid busy road. Beautiful walks and not far to berwick on tweed which is well worth a visit. The train line is close but we did not find it an issue, view is farm buildings. Not the site for someone who wants a great view however its well kept, clean, well serviced, easy booking. An ideal base site.

Another wonderful stay.

Our second visit to this site and we enjoyed it as much as the first, lots to see and do locally then come back to peace and quiet, good tv reception and 4G internet, really good for checking tide times at Holy Island. Had both dogs with us and lots of places to walk them. All in all a very good base to see the north east and the Borders a great little cl site, well kept and tidy.

The site is very clean and looked after toilets were clean and tidy it’s a small site which was just what we wanted and would certainly go back again enjoyed the time we spent here

Quiet and peaceful?

Brockmill Farm reviews are somewhat misleading. I read the reviews, looked on google earth and spotted the East Coast main line ran close by and was ready for some noise intrusion. However l was not prepared for the total lack of view, atmosphere and traffic that runs past the pitches. Or the noise. The site is approached via a long dusty potholed track, roughly three quarters of a mile. Drive past the farmhouse leads into the site which is very small by normal CL standards, all hard standings but-unkempt. One tap a toilet disposal and a toilet. It is surrounded by tall hedges so no view there. The track continues past the vans to the house behind and the fields. Monster tractors go by several times a day. Some of the buildings have collapsed and been left. All in all not good. The view from the van was of a solid barn front. Now for the noise. The East Coast main line runs along side the farm roughly 300 meters away. Trains run every fifteen minutes or so at speeds up to 115 to 125. Those coming from the north sound their air horns on approach, those from the south when they pass the farm. There is a set of points just to the north and the trains make a real noise going each way. Trains run from about 5.30am to about 11pm. That said the site is ideal for visits to Lindesfarne, roughly 4 miles away and other local attractions at Etal, Heatherslaw and various castles. Berwick on tweed is fascinating with its walls and fortifications. We never saw the owner. Several members left after one night echoing my comments about noise etc and in one case having paid for four nights. At times there were 6 units. Not at all impressed. The listing shows a cost of £13 a night, we paid £14, not a problem. The listing says four night minimum July August.

Lovely CL in glorious Northumberland

We visited this site in late Spring, and were the beneficiaries of beautiful weather for our weekend stay. This CL is easy to get to from the A1, and it is great to see that the road leading to the CL has been repaired. The site is very well sheltered from prevailing winds, and is very quiet. It is in walking distance of both a bar/restaurant in Beal, and in the other direction to a busy pub on the A1 itself. Highly recommended if you want to visit Lindisfarne (Holy Island) and the local sandy beaches.

Nice quiet basic site.

Nice pitches and of a good size with gravel base. Warm, heated toilet room with a selection of reading and information. No showers. Very close to Holy Island with some good local walks. For a short stay was great.

It is what it is.

We have just done an overnight stay to familiarise ourselves with a new caravan. The sight is as described by other reviewers but the key thing is that this is a working farm and therefore anyone staying here should not expect the same as a dedicated site. The access road does have pot holes but they are not large or deep and simply reducing speed makes them easily navigable. We did not see anyone from the farm but it was not necessary as everything you needed was where you would expect. From aspect of scenery, or views, there isn't any as such from the pitches, just buildings and hedges but a short walk will give access to fields where my dogs were able to exercise. Some signage would have helped to avoid huffing the owners? Would I stay there again, probably.

OK for a few days

My comments would echo what others have said, after a week we have still not seen the owners, views from the site are restricted by tall trees and old farm buildings, so if you want stunning scenery, this is not the site for you.  Access to Berwick and the Scottish borders is excellent, with trains from Berwick taking you to Newcastle or Edinburgh in around 40 minutes. Some of the signage on site could do with refurbishment as it has faded over the years, never did identify the dog walk. Pitches are rather small and close together, but are good and flat.

It grew on us......

Main disappointment for us was that we stayed for 5 night and still didn't know who the owners were by the time we left.  It was our first visit to a cl and it would have been nice to be greeted and shown around, however we didn't see anyone during our visit.  You have to look at the board to see which pitch you are on and where all the facilities are, however we never did find the dog walk area!  The lane is quite bad in parts and care does need to be taken especially with a caravan.  You can hear the train that runs near by but it's not very intrusive.  The 5 pitches over look a barn and there are tractors going passed your pitches at times as it is a working farm.  Having said all of that we didn't want to leave, we loved the peace and quiet and how accessible the Northumberland coast is to it.
