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!

Beautiful scenery overlooking Holy Island. Small site but with plenty of room-you park your car on the car park behind the site but only 50yds to carry your kit. Only one male and one female toilet/shower which may prove a problem when site is full. Lots of hot water and the showers are free. The setting is the draw for this site being only 1 mile to the causeway. The site is situated in the grounds of a café-which looked lovely but we didn't eat there so cannot comment on the food.

We had a lovely holiday here with friends. The location is beautiful and peaceful, and we had some great days out exploring castles, beautiful beaches and a trip to the Farne Islands.

The toilet / showers are a real issue - they really need to put some separate WCs in as the facilities were not sufficient when busy. They also need to clean them thoroughly at least once or twice a day as they are in constant use.

The restaurant is lovely, and contrary to an earlier review they will freeze your ice packs for you in their catering freezers so they come out properly frozen.

We booked at last years prices and think that this represented good value for money, but I do not feel that the facilities warrant pitch fees of over £20 a night which they are asking now for a mum and son in a six man tunnel tent with no hook up.
