Great site close to home.

Warden a really friendly guy who will help you with anything. The site has a mixture of statics and tourers, some tourers are seasonal.

Showers a little dated but always clean. Great park for the kids next door to the site and a public car park. The good thing is the site always looks locked and secure even though its right next to a public playground, The play park is locked off late at night and there are council wardens patrolling the park area to make sure there is no trouble.

In Rowlnds Gill is a small tesco, but a few miles away is the Metro Centre for all your shopping needs.

The site is great for seeing Red Kites, The birds of prey.

The camp was very well secured, you received a key fob for entering the gate and a key for the toilet / shower blocks. The camping spot had mixed tents and caravans and also had pick nick benches dotted around and a paver to put BBQ's.

The shower blocks were very clean / tidy, there were 2 normal showers and a disabled shower, and the same for toilets and about 6 sink basins and a urinal for the mens (not sure what facilities the women's had, but didn't hear any complaints!). There was also a washer / dryer that could be used (didn't look closely, just looked like the one there, that was operated using coins)

There was an on store shop / cafe (basic sandwiches available) / reception on site. Then at the top of the site there was a fish and chip shop and a bookies. A ten minute stroll up the road there was a post office, off license, sandwich shop, tesco, Lloyds TSB, and few other small shops.

Right next to the site there was a lovely walk leading up to a national heritage kept grounds that contained monuments and historic buildings etc.

All in All a great little park, would recommend.

The cost was 12.50 a night for our tent (which was a 4 man, but just two of us in).

Easy to access site, close to the A1 and major shopping centres. Ideal for Tynemouth which is 20 minutes away and why we went to the site. 16amp hook up. Lots of hot water available in older,

Well cared for, roomy enough shower rooms. Good TV reception if you want it. Nice owners. Reasonably level pitch, no blocks needed and enough room for larger units with an awning.

Other reviews cover local facilities and child friendliness. This site is barbecue friendly, quiet by 11pm. Small shop on site for snacks and ice cream. Possibly a little overpriced compared to the three others I have been to this month but then it is very near major cities.

The site is next to a lovely little park and handy for visiting Newcastle\Metrocentre with a good bus service.

We found the reception staff helpful, and Frank who shows you to your pitch is a font of knowledge. There is a good chippy and a CIU club at the top of the bank - the site have an arrangement with the club to allow campers in. We went there for a drink and it was friendly place with a good pint!

The toilet block was clean and there was a hot water whenever we tried. There was proper undercover dishwashing facilities and a laundry with magazines and books to borrow.

A couple of 'glitches' - the toilet block is on an automatic lighting timer which doesn't work if people are in the shower! Consequently unless someone else comes into the block when you're in there you shower half in the dark as the light goes out! The water pressure was poor and the showers not really big enough to get dressed without soaking yourself.

However, it's in a good location, ideal for a short stay and we would use it again. It's a bargain for tents as well - 10 a night. We visited the Italian restaurant a short walk away and it was excellent.

After a short stay on this site, I feel I must add, this site is, well to be fair, brilliant.

Shower blocks and toilets are spotless, plenty of hot water for a shower, no matter what time of day. A local community playground is only a minute away on foot, with football fields and bowling, crazy golf too.

Plenty of local shops, Tesco, and a post office is only half a mile away, with only a short drive to some spectacular views and history.

I don't feel the need to criticise this site as it is one I will revisit without a second thought.

Absolutely lovely site,very clean toilet & shower block, site & nearby park very well maintained. Owners extremely helpful and friendly as are the more permanent site users I met. Everything you need either on site or within 10 minute walk, Tesco, fishshop, booze shop, shop on site sells hot & cold sandwiches, ice creams etc kids were never away. We decided to stay an extra night we liked it that much and we will certainly be returning very soon.
