Site easy to get to, sited just of the A1. Berwick is a twenty minute walk away and a Tesco just two minutes from park. Staff are very friendly and clearly maintain the very high standards. Excellent play area for kids and dog walk encircles the park Toilet block is spotless and has laundry etc. Quality club house which serves lovely meals, soft play area for kids. A first class park which provides a relaxing holiday experience.

It took a while to 'check in' here; we arrived just after reception had closed and had to find the elusive 'red button' to call the warden. He finally showed up ten minutes later and other than showing us our pitch he seemed solely focused on getting another 10 from us after which he left us to it, without giving us any further information about the site. We were given one of the D pitches which was in the old Orchard area; this was perfect as motorhomes were definitely in the minority in this site used predominantly by static caravans. The ground was not level but this was easily rectified with blocks under our wheels. We were very close to the play area which the children seemed to enjoy.

A while later, a lady turned up with some information booklets which we were apparently supposed to have been given! As it was getting late for the children, we decided to eat at Maguires' which despite its less than salubrious appearance afforded a reasonably priced, decent quality and plentiful meal. We were pleasantly surprised.

We were thrilled to find spotless baths, as well as showers, in the wash areas and we certainly enjoyed this luxury although in terms of decor, the area was certainly rather dated.

Although wifi was 'free' we found just one tiny spot where it could be accessed!

Berwick is a short drive away and although a little run down, is certainly worth a peruse due to its interesting historical context. For fantastic cheap, fresh fish, visit the harbour; the lobster is more than fresh, being alive and awaiting your selection! The following day, having driven to Beal, we cycled over to Lindisfarne and had a fantastic day on the island.

Having visited this site a few times over the years with our tent we decided to treat ourselves to one of the wishbone lodges, a little bit of glamping as they say. The pod was roomy with bunkbeds and two camp beds and a wee heater to keep you cosy at night. As always the toilet and shower block were immaculate, the grounds are well kept and the play area for younger kids is fab. All in all a great base to see all the lovely places the area has to offer.

Just returned from this wonderful site. We were allocated pitch A4 which seemed to be on the main drag of the park. Lots to watch including slightly irritating young children back and forwards on scooters and bikes. Toilets, showers and prep areas all in one block. Nice and clean and an abundance of hot water in the showers but occasionally luke warm water on offer to wash up your dishes. Fantastic dog walking around perimeter of the park with plenty poo bins. There's even a very lovely garden of remembrance for beloved pooches which we found very touching. Clubhouse is lovely with something for everyone broken into three sections - sports bar, dining lounge and finally a room with pool tables and soft play. Altogether a great weekend, with fab weather too. We are returning in August. Whoppee.

We live an hour up the road and chose here to try out the awning we bought for the caravan and do a shakedown for the season. We had stayed here before many years ago and were keen to see what had changed. It still is a fantastically clean site with great play park for kids. Touring pitches are mostly hard standing and its refreshing to see tourers near the Clubhouse not pushed to the back of the statics like allot of other sites. Good dog walk and plenty of room for the kids. The on site bar and restaurant is lovely with entertainment at weekends. Food is decent pub grub and good portions and reasonable prices. Berwick is only 5 mins drive away, it is walk-able in 30 mins There was an on site camping shop when we were there that was thinking of closing down. I hope it didn't as the staff were brilliant at helping me get the spares I needed for the season ahead. I got all the gas fittings for the Propane and awning spares that were missing. Staff at the Maguires reception were very helpful

We decided to head out for a couple of days and normally stay near seahouses but the site we use was closed so we headed north as I realised Ord House is open all year. Arrived at 6 pm so it was nearly dark. Found the office and a nice couple said we could stay in area E on any pitch. The pitch had its own water supply and waste point and the showers were just over the road as we were near the entrance. Have to say we had a great time at Ord House. The walk into Berwick is an easy 20 minute stroll and the town is steeped in history and has great walks around the walls of the fort. We found the club house closed but the local pub is worth a visit The Salmon we had a meal here on the second night. Highly recommended. We took a walk around the site and found more touring areas so its got a pitch to suit all tastes and we would be back this year. The caravan Shop was open and the people who run it are very nice and helpful. I imagine its a great atmosphere when all the full timers are on site and the club is open. All in all we loved Ord house, good location well run by nice people. I would say its a good site for kids if you have any as good play parks etc etc.
