As previous reviews this is a spotless well maintained site, through out all the facilities. The playgroud is a large adventure style climbing frame with the mini golf behind it £2 pp(with a £1 deposit returned) its not the best but what can you expect for a £1.

There is a variety of pitches to suit families or couples, but you have to request them, all pitches are a large grave base so beware if you are putting up an awning, the whole site seems to have good drainage as it poured down through the night but in the morning everything including the park was in good condition still.

The on site bar was nice and they serve food (which we did not try, but sounded nice)there is a soft play in the family room but it is basic and would only suit smaller children and the site camping shop is full to bursting with everything you could possibly need for camping and very well priced.

The site cost us £20 for up to 4 persons and electric, so is a real find for us, we will return, but you have to pre book as we had tried to get on this site in the past but was fully booked.

Very nice site situated a 10-15 minute walk from the charming walled town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. There’s a pub 5 minutes walk from the site entrance. The majority of the site is taken up by “static”, but this gives it a more “community” feel. The pitches are set out well – the one we had was fully serviced with water, waste and a TV socket. The sanitary block is very clean and well equipped – there’s even a bath tub!

The staff were very friendly and gave us a whole load of maps and information about the local area.

The coastal cycle path to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a beautiful trail (12 miles each way) – but check the tides before you go! Would recommend the site to others as a base to explore the local area – there’s tonnes of castles and beautiful countryside to explore.

We stayed here for an overnight break on a weekend. Staff very friendly and the site is spotless. Toilets and showers are clean and warm with free showers etc.

Ideal location for walking into Berwick town centre which is about 1 1/2 miles way on a lit footpath. Nice park for kids on the site and we stayed in a quiet walled corner in an old orchard.

Would definitely stay again!

Great Site, would go again, camping/caravan shop brilliant, has all the little bits you would need,

Staff are brilliant and polite, playpark is great for kids, we were there for 4 nights and my kids played there all the time, and they are 9 and 6, also great football park,

Walk to tesco is 10 mins, for all your needs,

We were in D section, no problem getting in, pitch had water, waste, satellite and tv connection (fully serviced).

Toilets and showers were spotless, great dogwalk, never used the bar but no noise after 8pm, great to get kids to sleep

We stayed here for a weekend and were accompanied by friends in a separate tent.

The facilities were excellent, with a well stocked camping equipment shop on site and a small general store just outside the site. I even passed about 20 minutes in the games room!

Toilets were spotless as were the washing facilities. We stayed on pitch J5 in the orchard area. While the seclusion provided by the hedges gave a nice intimate feeling, we were plagued by the 'end of season' wasps due to the amount of greenery around us.

Our friends' 10 year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed the play park and one key attraction for all the kids was collecting conkers - all harmless fun. We had hoped to play the crazy golf, but didn't get time, so possibly next time.

The site staff were helpful and friendly, providing a wealth of information about what was on in the surrounding area over the weekend, and in general. As there was a food and beer festival in Berwick, we took a taxi into town (about £4.50 each way). This meant that we didn't manage to try out the clubhouse on this occasion.

We have made a few attempts to book this site and they are very busy in the peak season, so book early or accept an off-season break.

Would definitely recommend a visit.

Great site

we stayed in the D area bit tight getting tourer onto pitch but with help from GOOD neighbours no problem

Toilet and showers spotlessly clean. Site well maintained. Staff extremely helpful

Excellent accessory shop. Well run family pub with good food. Shop outside site entrance for basic needs

1 1/2 mile from Berwick. 1 mile to Asda. New Tesco opening approx end of sept 1/2 mile away .

If there is a negative there is a bit of a walk to empty the porta loo from the D area

So over all 8 out of 10

Nice site, but massive, our pitch was in the orchard close to the children's playground, but you cant have it all. Pub on site ok. Showers toilets etc clean and tidy. Great dog walk around site with loads of bins. There is a camping shop on site which sells just about everything you will need for camping/caravanning. There is a shop just across the road which sells the essentials if you run out of things. There is is a pub down the road 10min walk, went here one night, very nice and friendly. This site is not really my cup of tea, even so its a nice site with great facilities with kids in mind. Oh forgot to mention take some extra strong pegs and a lump hammer the ground in the orchard is like concrete, no I think it is concrete normal steel pegs would not go in bent loads.

We had 6 nights here at the end of august. 2 adults and one 7 year old girl.

Facilities are excellent - plenty of toilets / showers /washing up sinks - all spotless and never busy.

Good kids play area, nice bar with a family room, pool tables, play area.

Good camp shop on site that sells everything - reasonably priced too.

Good little shop over the road from the site. Asda 5 mins drive away along with an M & S food shop.

We didn't notice too much noise at night.

The staff were constantly tidying up and they were all really friendly.

One thing to bear in mind if you are a camper is that this is really a 5 star caravan park and there are hundreds of statics on site. I always feel that these type of parks lose a bit of camp site atmosphere and this was the case here a little bit. Our pitch was fine though and large enough for an 8 berth, however we didn't see the sun from approx 3.00pm due to the woodland behind our tent. I think our pitch was D9.

Local places to visit include banburgh beach, seahouses, (a cracking little beach near seahouses called beadnall beach), chillingham castle was worth a visit for 1/2 a day - the most haunted castle in britain apparently!

We visited Chain Bridge honey farm which is free and well worth a visit - we really enjoyed that trip.

'pot a doodle do ' is just down the road and you pick a clay pot of your choice and then sit down and decorate them. For the 3 of us, it was £40 which was ok. You have to pick your pots up 2 days later after they have been in the kiln so ensure you leave enough time in your trip to pick them up.

There are many many other places to visit but we didn't get chance but the area as a whole is excellent.

All in all, a nice site but not really what we would look for. I wouldn't go again but only because its more of a caravan site.

I would go to the area again though - excellent.

The site is large and has very good facilities.

The play area footy pitch and clubhouse are very good,the tent pitches while small in number were fine.(some are quite small so a large tent (like ours)could be a problem.Luckily our pitch was fine.

The site is well situated to tour berwick and the coast. And an asda is only 1 mile away.

The park staff were friendly and toured regularly.

The toilets were clean but not sure the key entry system is needed.

Shame there wasn't more tent pitches but overall

8/10 we would return.

Bamburgh castle and beach is a must. But the fish and chips in seahouses is both over priced and poor quality.

Craster and dunstanburgh castle very pretty.

We didn't venture too far but berwick is ok.

Next time we plan to visit the aviation museum nr edinburgh.

Reviewer: Ladyt75 1 review from this member

We have just arrived back and this is the first time I have felt strongly enough to leave a review of any site. This site was excellent. We have twins aged 7 who didn't want to leave. There is a large playground with equipment suitable from approximate age 4 up to 12, a crazy golf course, a table tennis table, a large football field and a small wooded area the kids spent a lot of time playing hide and seek in.

The shower block has everything you needed. There are 8 toilet cubicles in the ladies with baby changing facilities all of which were kept very clean. There are 4 showers in a separate room which again were kept spotlessly clean. Each shower cubicle had a fold down seat and 2 hooks (a big gripe of mine being that they never have enough hanging space).

Also 2 family rooms at the rear of the shower block were so useful. Each contained a double shower and a bath which made keeping the kids clean a lot easier than trying to cram into 1 shower cubicle. My only small disappointment with the showers was they were not very powerful and if somebody was running a bath in the family rooms the showers turned unto a dribble. I was very impressed though with the piped music being played into all the toilets and shower rooms.

We stayed on pitch c4 which was spacious with hard standing with electric and was in front of the playground so the kids were in view all the time. All in all a fantastic site, great base for attractions such as Lindisfarne, Bamburgh and Spitall beaches, plus easy access to nearby leisure centre with great pool, and shopping and food outlets in the town.

The site also has a great shop selling caravan gear with very helpful owner, small amusement arcade area, mini cafe and shop selling basic food and cleaning items.

These is also a club house/,pub selling food which we did not sample but looked ok.

Great site for a great family holiday !
