We spent a few nights at this lovely site at the end of May. We chose the site because we wanted to visit Lindisfarne and Berwick and the site is ideally located. Reading the reviews we knew there were no shops close by so we went prepared and planned our visits around when we would need to shop. The only thing we found a little disappointing was being asked to pitch our tents in the walled area, there was quite a slope in this area but we soon got used to levelling tables off and so forth. While we were pitching our tents a man came round to cut the grass, we wondered why as we had pre booked so they knew we were coming and we arrived later as we had made our way over to Holy Island first.
The facilities were well cared for and personally cleaned by the owner, consisting of a pot washing room, one male and female toilet with hand basin, shower and a lovely unisex wet room with shower, toilet and sink. It doesn't sound much but we never once had to wait. The information room was a nice touch with all the leaflets and guides on the area.
My 5 year old Granddaughter enjoyed exploring the farm, going to see the cow's and the pond. We went prepared with balls, kites and thing's to keep her happy, she particularly enjoyed exploring the rock pools on Holy Island and we took her back when the tide was in so she could see the island surrounded by the sea.
Our camping trip was enjoyed by all, we had a lovely time and I can recommend this camp site
I can honestly say that this was the most beautiful site that I have camped in. We stayed for three nights, right out in wonderful open country, not even overlooked by the lovely farm and cottages. At night there were carpets of stars. If a small, quiet and natural place to holiday is your thing, you will love it too.
Another of its great bonuses if that it is only 10 minutes driving to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, where campers are not allowed to stay nights.
The little facility block is charming and well kept with a washing-up room, a separate ladies and men's loo, a shower and a wet room, a little room for information (including all important Lindisfarne tides time-table), plenty of hot water and no extra charges. Plenty of electric hook ups too.
Although there are no handy 'walking distance' pubs for a meal out, there are plenty of lovely villages in easy driving distance for little shops and pubs etc.
If we ever manage to return to beautiful Northumberland we will stay at West Kyloe Farm again, that is for certain!
I stayed a night in August and thought it was a lovely site. If you want a site with lots to do and very organised and busy, then don't go for this site. However, I like to feel close to nature and I loved the site. Whilst its true you can't see the sea from the site you can see far away fields and a lovely pond. There are nice walks all around.
I thought the facilities were enough, however, if the site had been full there may have been queueing for things. Some of the field was a bit sloping and the area for motor homes was a bit restricted, and if it had been busy we might have felt a bit squashed. But if you like the countryside and walks and peace and can go slightly out of season then this site is perfect.
Stayed for 5 nights with a small caravan. Found the facilities very dated and no lights at night meant that it was practically impossible to find the toilet block! The toilet were very clean but very old fashioned. The grass on the site is kept very short but they do not collect the clipping. Therefore by the time that we left our caravan was full of damp grass. I am not sure if the site would drain very well in heavy rain. The pitch around us was very soft. However I do appreciate that this year is not normal weather. It is a very peaceful site but was not for me.
We stayed here for the Jubilee week. It was booked some months before, and I was asked for a £20 deposit, which was fine. We paid £20 a night.
Site was very easy to find, five minutes drive from the A1. On arrival we followed the signs which directed us to pull up by the cottage to sign in. Mrs Smalley was very helpful and directed us where to pitch, I had asked on booking to be in the field rather than the walled garden area.
The site is small and sheltered with nice views, they have made a feature of the mill pond with nice planting. You would need to keep an eye on young children. They had obviously had a lot of rain as the grass was really wet.
The pitches are a bit uneven, you will need levellers (and a brick under the jockey wheel in our case!) but nothing onerous.
The facilities are limited but clean, but this is a small site. There was one ladies loo, one gents loo, one shower and one wetroom/bathroom. One point, there is no handbasin in the shower room which is annoying unless you brush your teeth in the shower! There is also a small information room, showing walks from the site (of which there are several) as well as local attractions and eateries. No playground, but it's not that sort of site, the kids will make their own fun.
This is a working farm, so you expect some animal noise. However, the bulls were in overdrive and extremely noisy, for hours at a time and in a field just a few feet from the van. Maybe just the time of year but it did get wearing over the week. Not the owners fault, I know.
As I said, we were there for the jubilee and one of the beacons was lit on a hill above the farm so we walked up to watch Mrs Smalley do the honours! A lovely occasion and nice to be part of the celebrations.
Overall, this is a nice little site in a lovely area, lots to see and do and close to the borders too.
Our one gripe, and it did come close to spoiling our stay, was the grass! Usually we prefer a grass pitch but the field had been mown, and the loose grass, and lots of it, left all over the field.
For a site of this size, and on a working farm with all the expensive farm machinery, I don't think its too much to ask that their sit on mower has a grass collection box! Within five minutes of arrival, on setting up the inside of the van was covered with wet grass. And it was a constant battle to keep it out of the van and awning during the rest of the stay.
As I say, this is a lovely little site, in a lovely area, and we would probably stay there again. But please, buy a grassbox!
