Lovely site marvellous views over to Holy Island, lovely track down to the causeway which is scooter friendly except for when you first go to get through the gate coming of the road quiet a big drop from kerb. This is our 2nd visit they have enlarged it now have 14 motorhome/caravan sites lovely planted area in middle, looks as though they might be making some more improvements which hopefully will be separate toilets and shower curtains would not come a miss to stop drying area becoming wet. Would be nice if it was possible to have a walking map from the site as we noticed some people were walking down the farmers field and round and any other walks in the area, so you know the farmer would be alright with you on his land. Had a meal in the Bothy Bar 1st time we came very good this time we booked for the restaurant and had our own SCARLETT from am a celebrity get me out of here look alike, the staff were all very friendly and helpful hope to be back some time soon.

Stayed one night. I liked the choice of whether or not to have hookup; we did as it was a little chilly but wouldn't bother later in the year. (10 deposit for key to unlock the ehu).

Hard standing was fine for our campervans, others were bigger and needed for motor homes with awnings. Staff helpful and explained that the gate is shut at night but not locked if we were going out. Shower block lovely and warm but fixed at an odd angle so it sprays the toilet area. There are also new showers which I didn't use.

We were there Saturday and booked a meal, restaurant is very popular and we saw 4or 5 lots of people turned away who hadn't booked, not just campers. Interesting menu and a friendly helpful waitress.

Easy to cycle to Lindisfarne and Berwick (on a cycle path).

Would certainly use again.

On arrival, I went into the restaurant to register, as instructed. I was asked to leave a 10. 00 deposit for the key to open the electric hook up which would be returned when I returned the key at the end of our 2 night stay. I was not given any information on what to do next or where any facilities were.

The 'campsite' is actually in a large car park where a bus drop off point is situated. The 'campsite' was used regularly by people in cars either turning around or parking up - 1 person stayed parked up for over 8 hours, just sitting in the car.

The hard standings were level but very small, we have a short wheel base van and only just fit on.

The fresh water tap is very close to the chemical disposal point and there is no hose on the chemical disposal point tap - this made cleaning the area extremely difficult.

The showers and toilets were clean, however, there is only one toilet / shower for women and 1 for men. The shower and toilet are in the same room which could be difficult when the site is busy. There was plenty of free hot water, a little too hot at times with no way of regulating the temperature. There was nowhere to put toiletries other than the floor and no shower curtain to prevent the water splashing through into the toilet area.

The worst part was that a bikers rally was being held in the barn next to the 'campsite' and they belted out heavy metal music from 8 pm until 1 am on both nights we were there - needless to say we didn't benefit from the peace and quite we had expected and sleep was rather difficult. If the owners had informed us of the rally at the time of booking or even upon arrival, we would not have booked or stayed. I would recommend anyone considering staying here to check in advance whether they are hosting a rally or concert - the noise was so loud we could hear it on the Causeway!

Overall, I feel 20. 00 per night is too much to pay for this site. I do not feel the owners have any real interest in their campsite or their camping guests.

The views of Holy Island were lovely, the cycle paths were good and we enjoyed some lovely coastal walks from the site. Coffee and cakes were acceptable but not great.

This is a great, newly refurbished site.


Stunning views over Holy Island and a great base for exploring the area. Closest site to the causeway.


On site there is a cafe, gift shop and restaurant - all of very good quality, with nice outdoor seating. Only one shower and toilet for each sex but they were of a very high standard.

Great site!

We loved the peace of this campsite and it's proximity to Holy island. There were great views across the sea.

The cafe is very good, with free wifi and yummy cake. We had an evening meal (Fri and Sat only) and the food was superb - not cheap but worth it. Staff were all cheerful and helpful.

It isn't really a campsite as such, more somewhere with a bathroom that you can pay to park (15 a night when we were there, which is relatively expensive considering the facilities provided. ) We parked in the coach park for the time we were there. There is no hookup. The water is in the adjacent car park from the sink taps which are not shaped to make attaching a hose easy. We didn't use black water disposal after finding out it was under a manhole cover in the floor that need tools to lift.

The bathroom was great when the site was sparsely populated but would be a problem in high season, the heating was intermittent when we were there but the water was piping hot.

It could do with a non slip mat in the shower area.

We arrived back at 18:45 one evening and discovered the gates to the whole place were shut. We worked out how to open them in the darkness, but it was a bit disconcerting.

Beautifully situated site (Lindisfarne causeway is only 2 fields away!) and fantastic views to get up to. Plus easy to find/access other areas.

As others have commented. The shower/toilets are an issue. To the point it would put me off returning if not sorted out. We stayed for 3 nights and as there were more than 10 tents (most with children) the showers/toilets were rarely free/without a queue. Even at 5. 30 one morning I ended up using the mens'! I really hope they do sort this out as I would love to go back!

Nice play area if you do go with children!
