Brilliant site, quiet, clean and comfortable. The owners are very friendly and helpful. If you need anything they are there to help but are not laying down the law with signs and rules. Everyone on site were all nice and considerate. As it an adult only site everyone got on with there own thing and it was mainly couples, the peace was heaven. Facilities were great never had to queue for toilets or showers. Brilliant to have a book swopping section and tv.

We went to some lovely places while we were in Berwick its worth going to lindisfarne, Paxton house and walking the walls around Berwick.

Please be aware that you can walk along the river bank to Berwick it's around 7 miles but if you go down the camp side of the river it tapers off to a very narrow path and you have to be extremely careful in one area as it is close to the banking I wouldn't say it's safe for dogs either. If you want to walk the other side of the river go over the bridge towards Paxton house look for a small gate to the right of the bridge. This walk is longer and we struggled a bit to follow the correct path and it took longer but was safer and ok for dogs. We got the taxi back which cost 10 but I felt I didn't want to do either walk back but we are not seasoned walkers and the walks took between 2 to 3 hours.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at this site and felt we needed to share our views. This is a wonderful site, well laid out and very quiet, having only 16 pitches. The site is easily accessable from the A1, just follow the brown tourist signs to the Honey Farm, the site is next door. The pitches are a good size, most of them fully serviced with water and waste and it is only a short stroll to the bins, chemical disposal and amenities. The amenity block is housed in a converted out building and consists of a TV room, washing up area with microwave oven, showers (the best we have come across) and toilets. There is also an information area, books/magazines to borrow and necessary items to purchase such as eggs, milk, bread, home made cakes (yum yum), this is not a shop but is run with an honesty box. The owners are friendly and helpful, there is no reception area and don't worry about going to find them to pay they will find you. Overall a fantastic site, and wonderful area to explore.

The site is located close to the Union bridge which crosses the river tweed into Scotland. There is a 2 ton limit on the bridge with bollards at each end allowing cars only.

The site is very peaceful as it is situated in a rural setting away from main roads. The facilities are kept very clean. There are 3 toilets with sinks and there are 2 separate showers. I didn't have to wait to use the toilet or shower.

There are 2 washers and 2 dryers which can be used by inserting money into coin operated slots.

There is not a shop on site but there are eggs, bacon, milk, bread etc located in the facilities block and these are paid for by putting money into a honesty box.

Patrick and Nina will do everything to make your holiday enjoyable.

Hope to return next year

This is a little gem of a site, we have been twice to this park and found it very clean and well looked after. There is washing facilities and a few home made goodies which adds a special touch. It is not far off Berwick, a lovely little town, Seahouses and Bamborough. Will definitely return to this site.

What a beautiful site. We did encounter a problem getting to the site, as we approached from the north and could not get across the actual chainbridge, to reach the site, which was at the other side of the bridge. We had to back track and follow signs for the Honey Farm, which is next door to the site.

Each pitch is serviced with only a short walk to the facilities. The showers are the best we have used and the owners provide everything you could need, washers, dryers, washing up facilities, a small sitting area with books, television and radio. Providing free wi fi is a thoughtful touch. As there is no reception, we had to find the owner to pay, who was very friendly.

As expected on an adult only site, it was very peaceful.

Unusually for us we booked this site back in January (we are normally a bit more last minute). There were only 2 pitches still available which was a bit surprising, but having been to the site we can see why.

Chain Bridge is a small site - only 16 pitches - and many of the people there were 'regulars'. Despite this it wasn't at all cliquey and everyone was very friendly. The owners are very laid back and we hardly saw them during our visit but they are around if you need them. This suited us and wasn't at all a problem, but if you are used to a 'meet and greet' approach you may find it a bit disconcerting. We also liked the lack of signs setting out the 'rules' of the site. It was nice to be treated as an adult and everyone treated the facilities and other campers with respect without being told to do so!

The facilities as a whole are very good with the showers rating as FANTASTIC! The previous reviewers weren't exaggerating! There are only 2 shower cubicles but we'd never had to queue. The pitches are a really generous with water and electric to each and there is a good space between units so you don't feel at all crowded.

The site itself is only 2 miles or so from the A1 but if feels as though it is a world away from the hustle and bustle of a busy road. It does make it a really good base from which to explored the North Northumberland coast and the northern tip of the National Park. Edinburgh was only 45 minutes to the park and ride.

If we had to nit pick this site would be even more perfect if there was a pub within easy walking distance. There are some very good pubs in the area, but a visit involves driving. Also the one area where the signage may need to be improved is in the laundry. We ended up putting our washing through 2 cycles (at double the cost) because the instructions weren't entirely clear.

Overall however this is a really great site. If you are thinking of visiting the area then we would thoroughly recommend it - just make sure you book early!
