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.

We arrived late afternoon, nobody at reception so called the mobile number given to be told go to the barrier and call Al. It wasn't until we got to the barrier that we thought 'how do we call Al' So we sat in our van until a fellow camper walked by and we asked them. Fortunately they informed us where Al was, and we went to find him. Al showed us to our pitch and gave us a key to share for the toilet block. May I suggest a cordless doorbell for Al. The toilets were clean but had wooden seats which are a pet hate. The showers were small and the water pressure was a bit feeble although hot. My partner stated that there are large gaps at the bottom of the dividers between the shower stalls and as the shower trays are sunken, this may cause a lack of privacy. The whole appearance of the toilet/ shower block was a little rundown and tatty. If you are going to put fake flowers in a toilet block at least give then an occasional dust. There are some odd signs in the toilet which are a little disturbing, what has happened in the toilet facilities in the past? One sign tells me 'not to steal toilet paper' which I would never do and leaves me feelings insulted, but I'm sure that if you are the sort of person who steals things, a sign telling you not too will be ignored anyway. Get rid of these signs they are offensive to your good customers. There is a chinese takeaway and Italian restaurant to the top of the hill, bear left. We ate in the Italian and had a lovely meal at a very good price. This site is fine as a stopover but it is a little drab and needs modernising. Shabby without the chic. The best thing about this site turned out to be Al and his dog, who were charming and friendly.

We stayed for 4 nights and would definitely recommend.

The site is clean, secure and quiet. Perfect location for using public transport. Easy access to Newcastle by bus every 30 minutes. There is a chip shop, Chinese, Indian, tesco and bank all within walking distance.

The toilets are clean and the showers are clean and very hot (with a hairdryer that's more efficient than mine!). The wash up area was also clean and tidy.

The owners are friendly and welcoming and the staff on site were extremely helpful and friendly.

Lovely clean, tidy and quiet site.

The owners Ivan and Joan are very friendly and extremely helpful.

The shower blocks and washing up areas are clean and tidy.

There's a small Tesco's nearby and a nice pub called The Red Kite not too far away where you can get a fantastic Sunday lunch. There's also a small shop on site for tea, coffee, soft drink snacks and ice cream on site.

There's a couple of parks and a large playing field just outside of the park for the kids and you've also got the Derwent walk nearby.

It's also handy if your visiting the Metrocentre or Newcastle.

We will definitely be going back soon.
