A cute little site

This site is small and tucked away from the Farm Park. It has great views to the south and is sheltered from the north by woodland. Depending on how the vans are parked it would be difficult to get 5 on the hardstanding but there are close mowed patches which could be used. We found it very quiet. Yes some folk walk their dogs past the vans to a dog training area a long way off. We found it fine for a three nights but two vans were there for 2 weeks. There is no toilet nearby, just a scruffy one near the entrance to the Farm Park. Having paid at the Farm Park we were not bothered except for a chap cutting the grass areas and a tractor emptying the bins.

The worst "site" I have ever seen

It is no wonder there are no photos of this disgusting space! We had paid for 2 nights in advance and as far as I can see, this would be the only reason anyone would stay here. We looked around and decided immediately that we could not stay here, a layby on the road would have been preferable. Take my advice and go to one of the many other wonderful CL's that are up and down the country. ( I have given a 1 star rating only because this is required to submit a review, the true rating would be - 5 )

A very nice site

This is a lovely little site. No-one bothered us at all. We paid in advance and were told to just pitch up when we got here. We didn't meet any staff members. The site is within a sort of farm-cum-zoo place so there's lots of strange beasts to look at. There are a lot of little businesses as well, a monumental mason, a brewery, a café, all very interesting. The TV reception is excellent because you can just see Pontop Pike transmitter to the south, and all the pitches have a clear view of the Astra satellite, despite the trees, which in fact are to the north of the camping area. There were lots of people walking around with dogs (some sort of dog training was going on I think) which was rather jolly. The only complaint I have is that the taps are hopeless for attaching a hose so I had to bungee the hose on to fill my tank.

Absolutely Awful

If we had not paid in advance we would not stayed. The site is extremely untidy, cramped and noisy with what appears to be a builders yard which the caravans must overlook. The road running through the CL is used by commercial vehicles and staff from the Industrial Units nearby. The rubbish bin is an eyesore and could have easily been hidden away. As for your question "welcome" ? my answer is what welcome ! Would we go again...never in a million years ! This CL should be inspected by CC without delay.

Recent stay:5th August 2015 for 3 nights.

Not quite what we were expecting having been to several CLs. Interestingly no image on this page.Vehicles very close together on ground, wouldn't call it a site, near to industrial units.Loo is quite a walk away and wouldn't want to venture out during the night. It was busy though, it is cheap, staff friendly and good base for getting out if you have your own transport. Can see why families like it as lots of animal interest for children.Great Park and Ride at Newcastle does not have access for motorhomes but we managed to park on land close by. Not ideal but it was OK. North East is amazing but probably choose a different site next time.

Working farm cl

We took the kids here recently for the weekend. The cl is small but gets 5 vans in snug.  We thoroughly enjoyed it here.  Early morning walks down to see the goats with the kids. Watching the farmers harvesting made the kids weekend. Show your caravan club membership card on entry for a discount to the farm. If asked if we would go back the answer is a definite yes. Ideal location to visit many northumberland towns from.

Not the Best CL

We had a good couple of days at Whitehouse farm as we have two young children (3 & 4). The CL was somewhat disapointing. The site is very small so thankfully we did nt want to put our awning up for the two nights. The ground is hard standing but has clearly been neglected and in dire need of a few hours spent on it to generally tidy it up. There is a road which runs through the middle of the CL and although not used that much it did have commercial vehicles (from adjacent industial unit) passing through. I feel that this CL runs the risk of falling below the acceptable standard for the CC. On the saturday evening a car pulled up on the site directly in front of the water/waste point. A man got out wearing camouflage suit and carrying a large rifle with telepscopic sight (not an air rilfe). Whilst we appreciate that shooting may be part of country life, there were plenty of other places to park in order to gain access to the fields. In any case he was only in the field for about ten minutes. This is not what we have come to expect from the club CLs. We were given a substancial discount on our entrance to the farm as we were staying on the CL and we are grateful for that. Would we stay again? No I dont think so and I would invite the CC to inspect and to require that the site be kept to a better standard and made safer.

spare bit of ground

This site is never 1 acre barely 1/4 acre the site is triangular and uneven. There is hard standing but more by chance than planned. The toilets are quite a walk away and you wouldnt want to go at night. However if you can avoid your neighbours windows the out look is great, stunning views and animals although sited on a childrens petting farm this no way intrudes on the caravaners
