Since our first visit in 2010, we try to be regular visitors to this site because it is one of the loveliest on the network, The wardens are as friendly and supportive as anywhere. All in all a perfect experience. Which is why following our first visit this year we hope to stay maybe another three times this year. The site is ideal for both a short break to relax or for a longer holiday. There are lovely quiet - albeit undulating - roads for cycling, whether for "serious" hard work or a more leisurely experience. And numerous offroad trails for walking and running, starting with the immediately adjacent and beautiful nature reserve (take a camera) or slightly further afield (but still starting from the site) along the river and into the hills which can be as strenuous as anyone would want for running. The site is perfectionally positioned on the edge of the national park, but also within quite easy reach of the Northumberland coast by car, or (in my case) by cycling. I can't recommend this site strongly enough.
