A large family orientated site with good facilities.

Typical club standard and open plan. We arrived fairly late but caught the shop and were made very welcome despite the small revenue we offered for one night.

The toilet blocks and washing area were superb standard and highly cleaned, even late at night. There is a large central play area for children where you can pitch directly opposite with a touring unit. The camp area was ok, slightly sloping ground but nothing too bad.

We never used the on site bar but it looked great.

The only issue I had from this site was a small lack of vegetation in my opinion, a few more trees would have been nice otherwise a perfect family site.

Spent a long bank holiday weekend on this site, it is in an excellent location with great views, relatively easy to find and access with a caravan, (use directions on their website) and a short drive from Bamburgh and Seahouses. I would recommend the Copper Kettle in Bamburgh for lunch or afternoon tea.

There is a restaurant/clubhouse on site, but this was very busy in the evenings so we did not try it.

There is generally a large field for tents and a large field for touring caravans, sharing a toilet block between them. This is a big site, but the vast majority is given over to static caravans on the rest of the site. Although not the largest toilet block for the amount of people staying on the site we didn't have to queue at all, and the block was regularly cleaned. Water in the showers was just about hot enough for me, but in the sinks it was extremely hot.

Only a few fully serviced pitched with water and drain, but plenty of water taps and drains for the rest of us and good clean waste recycling areas around the site.

A very well stocked shop on site, too. Amazed at the things they had there, including a wallpaper flattener :)

Good facilities for kids - we didn't use the splash pools but there were lots of swings, climbing frames and a zip wire in the main area which was the main attraction.

The only downside to this site is the amount of touring caravans they try to fit on. As this was a bank holiday weekend it was busy with nearly all pitches full it was quite interesting trying to get to our pitch and maneuver the caravan into place (no motor mover). There was just about enough room for the 'van on hardstanding, the awning on the grass beside and the car at the front, other pitches were really struggling for room, leaving cars to block access routes.

The staff were good in asking if we needed help to get onto the pitch, and advising where to park the car so a fire engine could access the site if required, but this all seemed to go out of the window by the Sunday night with cars parked everywhere.

Although a busy site it was quiet from 10pm onwards, and we would return to stay there if in the area again.

This was a half term trip with our two kids and our first towing with a tourer. Amazing location, excellent site.

Facilities excellent, very clean and well kept. Location is superb, beautiful area also with fantastic nature walk on the site. Couldn't fault the service and the value for money great. Full service pitch Easy to access. Very family friendly. For a family new to caravanning, this was a perfect start. Will certainly be using this as a benchmark for future trips. Overall an easy 10/10.

Lovely campsite and perfect for families. The pitches are nice and flat and have stunning views out to sea. The shower and toilet facilities are the best we've had; music and a heater in the main ones and also there are family bathrooms which are great. The owners are very thoughtful and organised a teddy bears picnic for the kids, and even though this was rained off they made the effort to give out the picnics they'd made to all the kids which was a nice touch :-)

The best thing is definitely the play facilities for chikdren. Massive central football field, two playgrounds including a wooden obstacle course and a zip wire. Our boys (4 & 6) loved it and were hardly at the tent!

We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was great. A bit pricy but worth it for the convenience.

Location-wise it's brilliant. You can see Lindisfarm and Bamburgh Castle from the site, and it's a short drive from the area's tourist attractions.

Overall, fantastic family site which we would happily return to :-)

A really great site, the best we have been to in three years of touring.

The location is brilliant for exploring the area, 15 mins north and you are in Berwick, or Holy island and the same sort of time south and you are at Craster, with Bamburgh, Seahouses, Beadnell and Low Newton on the way. All the beaches are fantastic and the quaint little villages have plenty to do with good pubs, restaurants, castles, boat trips and some great walks.

The site is perfectly clean and really well laid out with an earth mound covered in trees shielding the pitches from the sea breeze. In the centre of the pitches is a good kids play park easily visible from your pitch so the kids can be supervised, whilst letting them have a little bit of freedom that isn't always possible at home.

The touring facilities were always clean and smelling of zoflora (or similar) good sized showers with loads of hot water and plenty of cubicles so even at the early morning busy time there was no queues. Half a dozen family wet rooms are fantastic, the missus said showering our two young girls was an absolute doddle compared to anywhere else we've been.

Whilst here we encountered no problems and didn't have to call on the wardens for anything, but they were friendly and spoke on passing. The site was lively throughout the day, but very quiet after dark and we all slept really well.

The larger site has more parks for the kids, one with an amazing view point covering half of Northumberland.

The shop is a little bit expensive but the small well thought out range covers everything you might have forgotten.

The bar is good with a decent range, nice seating and a good patio, overlooking the lovely kids pool.

We didn't eat at the site but the food looked good and was a reasonable price.

We will definitely be returning early next year!

Brilliant camp site, we are just back from a 3 night stay here with our 2yr old son. The site is big and caters for campers & caravans

All the toilets & showers were very clean and well maintained which helped a great deal with a wee one and a wife who was not keen on camping before we went.

The staff are all very friendly & helpful especially the lady in the shop who went out her way to get me ice from the bar as there was none in the shop.

There are male & female toilet/shower blocks and a family area which has rooms with showers & toilets & one room has a bath (key available from reception for a £5 refundable deposit)

There is a bar which is reasonable for a holiday camp - a pint of Carling was £3. 05, Smirnoff £2. 60

The bar also sold food, we had takeaway one night from the bar which was ok (if you don't mind paying £6. 45 for a chicken burger & chips - but we had missed the shop so had little other option) and we had breakfast one morning which was very good

The 2 swing park areas are good and kept our wee boy amused.

Berwick Upon Tweed is 30 mins away north up the A1 and is good for a trip (a market on Wednesdays), we also went to Seahouses which was only 10 mins south on the A1 and found The Bunker soft play area for kids which was great to pass a rainy morning

I cannot rate the cleanliness of this site high enough, it really was a high standard considering how busy the site was during our stay

We will definitely stay here again however I think we would go for electric hook up tent pitch as a small heater would have been nice as it got quite cold quite quickly once the sun went down
