We stayed at Sweethope Lough for 4 nights in mid September 2012.

As the previous reviewer has stated, the site is fairly isolated but it is well set up with long terraced hardstandings, electric hookup and a dedicated water point to each pitch. No awnings are permitted, probably due to the narrow pitches and the boggy nature of the grass dividing strips between pitches. Views across the lakes from the pitch are stunning whatever the weather.

There are short walks around the two site lakes although, during our visit, the fishery & boating businesses were closed, so it was very quiet. Great Wanney Crags are close by where you may encounter some ”crag rats” attempting some quirkily names climbs such as Nosey Parker, Broken Wing & Willing to Sin! Some of the footpaths in this particular area were a bit of a quagmire giving us wet trousers, socks & boots!

The nearest shops appeared to be the hotel/filling station at Knowesgate on the A696 crossroads which is probably 3. 5 miles away.

We didn’t get to see the site manager at all, so we left our site fees in the fishery “returns” box at the entrance building.

Nice small site situated in Northumberland, a couple of miles off the A68, aboout 8 miles south of Otterburn. The site is very isolated and you have to travel by car for shops and pubs, which adds to the character of the place. It is set in the grounds of the Sweethope Lough fishery, which has two popular and well stocked lakes.

There are no toilet or shower facilities, but the pitches do have electricity and water supply. Views from the pitches are excellent, overlooking the lake and surrounding fells. There are two pubs on the A68, within about three miles of the site. We tried the The Gun Inn, which served good pub food.

Overall, excellent site, would certainly return.
