Excellent site, very well looked after. Our granddaughter loved the park, and the ice creams! Friendly staff to greet us, Kevin met us and showed us our pitch, he was very helpful. We will return, thank you.

Great little site with excellent staff and great facilities.

The lovely Joan checked us in and gave all the information we needed to start a few days break with the grand kids 1, 6 and a 7 yr old

Kevin directed us to our motorhome pitch and again he is a lovely fella who goes out of his way to help.

The motorhome pitches are hard standing and are well looked after so no worries there.

The toilet blocks although dated are kept very clean and have a good supply of hot water, in fact all of the facilities are obviously well taken care of and all worked as they should.

There are a few rules in place but this helps to keep the sight user friendly for a peaceful holiday(no banging music and late night rowdiness)

There are a couple of parks just outside the sight gates and our kids absolutely loved it sand, swings, slides and water great fun had by all.

The sight has a little cafe/shop which comes in very handy even though just up the hill is a small village with a good selection of shops Tesco, Londis etc a chippy(top of the hill) and also a couple of restaurants along with a social club.

This is a nice quiet sight in a great location with excellent staff and all at a good price. Many thanks see you again soon

I'm not sure that I'm on the same Derwent Park as the previous reviews as I found that at 25 a night this site did not meet my expectations. The pitch that we were allocated was that close to the caravan at the side of us it was impossible for them to hitch up without manually pushing their caravan to an angle. The pitch itself was so uneven that even with full air-suspension we could not get level! The showers were not clean and the shower curtain in the gents was covered in black mould. The water pressure was non existent and an air of seediness permeated the whole camp-site.

The only positives I could find were that there was a good bus service to Gateshead/Newcastle outside the site and the Red Kites were a pleasure to watch.

This site is not worth 25 per night.

This was our first time in the area. Despite being close to the A1, Gateshead and Newcastle it is a beautiful part of the country. The site is situated in a valley and ideally situated for touring the area. It is small, quiet and peaceful. It is well maintained and yes the toilet/shower block could probably do with a facelift but it is spotlessly clean with soap and hand drier. The hot water both to the basins and showers was always hot and not timed or restricted. The washing up area was always spotlessly clean.

There is a Tesco, Chinese takeaway, fish and chip shop, Italian restaurant and pub within a short distance. We ate at the Red Kite pub and it was excellent. Yes there are rules but only common sense and common courtesy to other site users. We did not find them any different to other sites.

We had a 4 year old with us and there were several other children nearby but we did not find any restrictions and the playgrounds and large field next to the site was an added bonus. There is a small shop serving teas/coffees, hot and cold snacks and ice creams next to the site. We found everyone very helpful and friendly and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We stayed 6 nights and will certainly return. We found the site excellent value especially as site fees included electricity and showers. We have paid much more per night at other sites in the Midlands.

Stayed for two nights last week at Derwent Park. We're welcomed by Kevin who directed us to the shop where Joan booked us in. Kevin and Alan directed us to our pitch. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. The pitch was brilliant, a concrete base, and the facilities were all nearby. Wildlife in abundance, wonderful. Watched from our motorhome door, red kites and goldfinches, what a treat. The facilities were all kept beautifully clean and the campsite was quiet. There is a bus service nearby which you can use for Newcastle or the Metrocentre. This site is a little gem.

My wife and I visited Derwent for two nights as we were attending a wedding in Newcastle.

We found the site to be quiet, well manicured and the staff could not be more helpful or friendly. There are rules about dogs and children but we have neither so they didn't bother us. Whilst the facilities block could do with updating it functions perfectly well and was immaculately clean, no timers on the showers either, bonus, the washing up area was also clean and in good order.

Everyone has different requirements, for us, peace and quiet, a level pitch, electricity and good shower block with warm water were ours and they were met, the helpful and friendly staff were a bonus.
