Just passing through the area and wanted to stay a night at Budle Bay Campsite but it wasn't open so decided to try this site.

It is on top of the hills and is a static, tent and touring caravan site with lots of facilities including a bar, restaurant and pool. Not my usual thing but the staff were great, the place spick and span and the views over the coast would be awesome on a sunnier day. It is close to beaches and Bamburgh Castle though it is at the top of a climb if you wanted to walk there.

I had a good nights sleep as the place was very quiet being the time of year it is.

All in all a nice place if you want a song and dance type campsite.

This was our first stopover for two nights on our way back from Scotland. It was very quiet as there were only 2 other units on the touring site. I would imagine it would be very busy in high season as this is a lovely park with good facilities. Not too sure about the proximity of local pubs/shops as we had already been into Seahouses (15 minutes drive away) to buy supplies. The toilets/showers were impeccably clean and we found the staff in reception and the shop very friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant one night and found the food good value for money. We wandered around the site and found a beautiful small nature reserve with fantastic views to Lindesfarne. The coastal walk is signposted nearby and it's only a 15 minute walk down to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and wished we'd booked for longer instead of driving further south to another park for a further 2 nights. We loved the location and will definitely be coming back.

We stayed at waren mill for two nights and it was lovely.

Was my sons first time camping and he really enjoyed it.

The shop on site was well stocked and a very pleasant lady on the till.

The reception staff were very helpful.

The playgrounds were lovely for the kids however not great for toddlers (my son aged 22 months) as was full of older children hogging everything and not many things he could play on but wonderful for older kids.

Lots of space and I really liked the separate area for tents as it was quieter.

Only downfalls were the pool on site was great in theory but water was freezing. My son and nephew literally dipped in it and couldn't stay in too long.

The bar area is good, clean and spacey however they didn't serve breakfast till 9. 30am and food times were not great.

The shop closed at 5pm on weekends and there isn't many shops nearby unless you drive into seahouses which is 10mins away.

We were also told that a member of staff would come and check everything is ok when we were pitching our tent. He never actually came to say hello or see if we needed anything although I did see him helping and welcoming other guests :-s so this was a bit disappointing and the only time he did say anything was to give a bit of attitude when I parked in someone's spot for five mins as ours was taken by another car and we had a large tent that had to be erected.

Overall we did enjoy our stay thank you.

Wonderful site! My family and I (2 adults, 3 children) stayed here for 5 nights during a really hot July.

The site is ideally located a couple of miles off the A1 in a beautiful area of the UK. The views were truely stunning and the campsite was clean, well maintained, friendly and relaxing.

The site comprises of 2 camping fields, a static caravan park (away from the camping fields), at least 2 playparks (and other little ones), a restaurant, shop, heated outdoor pool, games room immaculate toilets, showers, laundry area and washing up area.

I was worried that the site might be like one of those parks with cheesy entertainment but it wasn't at all. It has the facilities of those type of parks, but much cleaner and well maintained.

We were given a pitch. It maybe would have been nice to be able to choose, but our pitch was good anyway. The grass was of good quality and the ground was flat.

The toilets and showers were the cleanest I have seen at a campsite. There were also 6 family shower rooms. One of them even had a bath. The water was nice and hot and the pressure was fine.

The pool was great. There was a shallow splash pool (suitable for our 2 year old) and then a little slope, like a slide into a deeper pool that you could swim in (suitable for the rest of us).

The games room was full of lots of arcade games and a pool table. We didn't use it as the weather was great.

The restaurant and bar overlooked the pool. I did feel a bit self conscious when in the pool as it was so overlooked. There wasn't many adults in the pool and I think that was the reason. However, on the flip side, it was nice to enjoy a drink and watch our older 2 having fun in the pool.

The food in the restaurant was cheap to buy but of surprising good quality. They had lots of deals on for different nights. We ate there on a Wednesday night and the kids all ate for free.

The playparks were good and there was something for all ages.

There was also a walk you could do all around the park which was lovely and we enjoyed lovely views on it.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. On our first day a very helpful lady in the reception recommended lots of places to visit and gave us vouchers for some places.

The lady in the shop was also very nice and helpful as well and a credit to the park.

I really can't think of any real negatives, and if you read other reviews I have written I usually can comment on a few!

By the end of the holiday I really felt like I had had a holiday. Just wonderful as I am a busy mum with 3 youngish children and a hubbie too!

Just returned from 2 nights on this camp site after reading the reviews on this site, and we hated it.

the site was packed when we arrived even getting to the site reception was difficult with kids riding bikes with little or no road sense. 10mph for cars but any speed if your a cycle.

check in was easy and directed to our pitch on the ADULT only section. The pitches are very small and tight. to call it a adult only section is a bit of a laugh, this bit of the site is situated just above the main campsite and play area and is a shortcut for all the kids and there were plenty of them, going to and from the main bar and pool areas as well as a additional play area.

this site has an 11pm curfew for noise but there were still small children running around our tent at midnight. Tripping over and pulling out our guide ropes 2 even tried to take a shortcut through our tent.

the toilet and shower block are small for the size of the site 4 male and 4 female showers for 250 pitches. However we did find them always clean and well kept.

over all this is a family site with most people being in large group in 2 or 3 large tents allowing their kids to run around the site unchecked until what ever time they want.

the people who run the site seemed happy to allow this to continue.

will not be returning

Stayed here as a stop over for 1 night and really had a great time. Facilities and site are excellent and staff are very friendly and helpful.

Toilets are spotless, and they have the play park in the middle of the campsite so kids are able to be seen from most pitches.

Seemed a very safe and child friendly site.

They have an outdoor swimming pool although we never tried it as only there for 1 night and it was very busy. Good well stocked shop located at reception.
