I was with my wife and two children (10 and 12) and was looking for a wilder camping experience, Ruberslaw gave us a taste but allowed access to modern conveniences.

Their hub site was a 10 minute walk from the wild camping area, the hub area is a brilliant site for families with small kids, flat site, lots to do and the 'hub' makes for a safe haven if raining etc. Also no cars in the camping area feels safer for littlies.

We were wild camping and needed our gear taking to the wooded area as it was too off the beaten track for the car. This added to the feeling of being in the wilderness.

The site is a little wooded area with communal fire pits available, all very clean and quiet. Lots of birds and insects and one sighting of wild deer. There is water delivered, the efficient Thunderbox toilet and no other nods to civilisation. We all loved it, particularly looking up from the orange glow of our campfire to the patterns of stars through the trees surrounding us.

The owners are very helpful and friendly and run a tight ship. I was impressed with the entire set-up and would recommend this highly for anyone wanting to get a bit closer to nature than most campsites allow.

The site was central to the places we wanted to visit (Lindisfarne, the national park etc. )but beware of your sat-nav. Often we were taken down tiny windy 'shorter routes???'

I would thoroughly recommend this site for families with younger kids or families wanting a bit more adventure. A lovely time had by all

Our first camping effort for over 20 years and couldn't have chosen better. Facilities and maintenance of the site are excellent and Ali & Alan are constantly available to help with any queries and impart local knowledge.

Neatly mown and defined pitches in the walled garden supported by spotless washing facilities and amenities are all you could possibly want.

Will definitely return and recommend to friends/family (already booked for May 2015).

Gorgeous, rustic little camp site set in a walled garden. We were there sans kiddy hoping for a nice (and very rare) coupley break in peace, but it was still the tail end of the English summer holidays so the place was pretty busy and overrun with kids. Our stay was anything but serene as we still had to listen to children whinging, crying and shouting even though we'd left our own little treasures at home. The site is small and there was no escaping them. Ended up a bit of a busman's holiday for us unfortunately.

Would definitely go back but either with our own kids in tow or outwith the school holidays.

The facilities were excellent and the staff very pleasant.

Our first time camping after 35 years was a success due mainly to the choice of campsite. In a lovely area and tents only.

The site itself is mainly in a walled garden and mainly individually mown pitches (small, medium and large). The facilities block had male and female toilet and washing facilities leading to mixed shower block. All hot water was free. Dish washing facilities were provided undercover, and included oven, fridge, kettle, microwave and boot washing.

The running and maintenance of the site was second to none and management were always around to solve any problems or give you advice on the area. There was also shelter in case of inclement weather in the large green house or the communal hub. An excellent site run by people who understand campers. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Possibly the best campsite in the world! The owner and managers think of absolutely everything you would need. Everything is of a high quality. The showers are spacious and immaculate and there was never a queue. The kitchen was useful both for cooking and meeting fellow campers. There were numerous fruit trees and lots of wildlife. It's a great area for walking and cycling. We will definitely return.

Camping doesn`t get much better than this!

The site is in such a beautiful area, rolling green countryside with lovely walks and cycling.

This is a review for the field camping within the walled garden. The site also has camping in the woods.

Park your car in the car park, load up the trolley provided and wheel it to your pitch which will not be far away if staying within the walled garden. The pitches are well marked with lovely wild flowers and grasses bordering all pitches so no chance of anyone encroaching on your pitch. The site is so neat and tidy, grass in lovely condition. Woodchip paths snake around the site to make sure people do not walk over your pitch.

All the facilities are in The Hub which is a large barn structure with huge open fireplace and round wooden tables and benches. There is a small kitchen area with 2 washing up sinks/boot wash and a fridge for your use (only 5ft fridge without freezer so will be full when campsite busy so do not rely on being able to use it at busy times). There is also a microwave and kettle. The washing machine was broken during our stay. There was a rotating washing line thingy also.

There are 3 ladies toilets/4 sinks (presume same for men). 4 showers in unisex shower block all within Hub. Push button powerful and hot showers with small changing area in each one.

We have a 4 year old boy who had a great time. He made friends and enjoyed exploring. I think this site is more suited to younger children (under 10). There is a flat play area about the size of a bowling green and another area in front of the greenhouse. Games are provided in the greenhouse eg. Giant jenga / croquet / boules / giant dominoes for your use. Wi-Fi also available in hub for free and phone / laptop recharging point.

You can use your own fire pit or hire one with logs and BBQ grate for 5. Quite a few midges and horseflies around during our stay so having a smokey fire was a godsend. There was no noise after about 10pm.

We are looking forward to a return visit to this well run family friendly campsite.
