Stayed here 5 nights. Found pitches were hardstand with plenty of room. Toilets and showers kept clean. They said there was a small shop selling milk, newspapers but never saw it. Our pitch was beside a couple of swings for the kids bit annoying when kids were cutting through at back of our caravan to get to themm might be a good idea to move them over in the corner away from pitches, wooler town centre just a 10 min walk away with pubs, take aways and gifts. Would go back if touring in that area again

Excellent site. Showers and toilets cleaned regularly and never had to queue to use them. There’s a laundry on site and a good washing up room.

There’s plenty of space for the kids to run and cycle and some swings and a slide for them, but not so much room to set up a cricket or football game. It’s a big site for them to explore – there’s a massive field for tourers and seasonal pitches and then another large area with statics, but all very safe and comfortable. There are lots of ducks to entertain the children and they wander the site without being a nuisance.

The units are fairly packed in - I would have liked a bit more room around us, but it's a very busy site. Unfortunately, we were right next to two very loud families, who disturbed the otherwise peaceful site most of the day. Everyone else was fine and the site mostly was very quiet from around 10. 00pm. Lots of dogs on site, but all well behaved and never once saw any poo!

The lovely village of Wooler is less than 10 minutes walk with a well stocked Co-op, two excellent local butchers, bakers, cafes, pharmacy and post office.

Also a fantastic Italian called Milan behind the Black Bull pub - make sure you book though – we had to wait an hour on a Tuesday evening! Great Fish & Chips at Foulis - 2 portions will feed 2 adults & 2 children! Disposable BBQs can be bought on site for £3.

Good central site for Alnwick, Scotland and coast (although a bit of a winding drive). Be warned - the ground is very stony in places – we went through quite a few tent pegs!

There are no freezers for your picnic freezer blocks, but the owners will freeze 3 for 60p per day. Maybe the way forward would be to put a couple of small freezers in the information room for everyone’s convenience.

Excellent site – will be back again.

What a beautiful site very open and well spaced out. Lots of elec hookups if needed good parks for children and dog friendly. The Lady who booked us in was very friendly. Amenities were absolutely spotless and cleanliness was amazing showers on site were wonderful. Good washing up areas and chem loo points clean very good value for money Will visit again but with more midgy spray I was eaten alive. Thankyou very much for a wonderful stay andy n helen and k x

Spent 4 nights here from 18th. Reception was friendly and effective - 'Go find my husband, he's doing the bins & he'll show you the pitches'. Lovely open site, we chose a site lower down near some trees. A bit too close to the stream and kids play area!

Site was stony, but ok, electric pickup, & close to hygiene block. The best equipped and cleaned block we've seen since pricey French sites. Timed, hot showers, included in price, and lasted too long for me. Cleaned daily, never overwhelmed by users.

Site close to village of Wooler. Handy for a stroll into pub before cooking evening meal or using cafes, pubs, or restaurant in village - Milan.

Close enought to Alnwick, Bamburgh, Scotland - Kelso and Jedburgh. Great stay.

This is a lovely site with plenty of pitches with and with out hook ups and the grounds are well maintained. Despite it being the summer holidays we did not feel too crammed in. There where plenty of other tourers and campers but in general the site was peaceful, probably as there are no on site facilities like a club house and this suits us just fine. There are a couple of play which the younger children enjoyed. The owners are relaxed and friendly and the cost is very reasonable. However our one criticism would be about the toilet blocks. On arrival they appeared quite clean and whilst not very modern they where better that some I have seen. Sadly though, the showers where disgusting. Firstly I am not a fan of the push button operation as you can not control the temperature. My main gripe however was the filthy floor in each shower cubical which I or any one else was unable to clean out as the only mop was a dirty broken thing that did more harm than good. The result is that you can not put anything on the floor and getting dried is a balancing act to prevent stepping in to a puddle of mucky water. This is such a shame as a proper mop and a bucket of disinfectant water does not cost much. This would not stop me going again but I would think it would put many people off.

Been to this site a few times now. Firstly in tents, but the last time in a caravan. This is what I would say your traditional caravan / camp site. Toilets & showers I would say are average. Pitches are fantastic for tents if you have EHU but can be a bit awkward for tourers as there is a lot of uneven ground. Prices are fair, if the toilet facilities were better I would have said the price was reasonable. Nice views from high pitches. Pleasant 5 - 10 minute stroll into Wooler with its dog friendly pubs. The owners of this site are pleasant and friendly. One thing that really let's the site down is the electrics, they really need upgrading, even with light use the units trip so you need to keep going out to reset them, there are 4 users on each unit so if you have a neighbour who uses loads of electricity your unit will keep tripping
