 Friendly site close to the shore, good bird watching.

Facilities closed because of the COVID pandemic when we visited.

But had a nice tour of the area.

 We've stayed at this site a couple of times now - both times for a single night out-of-season while passing through the area. It's not the best site in the world but it's fine for that or as a base for a couple of nights exploring the area.

The warden is friendly and very accommodating when we were a last minute booking.

The site seems to be mostly given over to seasonal caravans but there are spaces for tourers and tents. When we've been, out of season, it's been very quiet despite all the vans.

The toilets & showers are ok - a little tired (the push taps need a bit of tlc) - and the pot wash feels a bit bolted on but does its job.

One issue we have isn't with the site itself but a small warning: there aren't any good places to walk dogs nearby. As other people have noted, the road back to Bamburgh is busy/fast and there isn't a footpath, and anyway the beach is more of a marsh mudflat than a sandy bay.

 Tent pitches on a slope which was good considering the amount of rain we got while there. Site would feel crammed if full.

Toilets and showers clean and all working.

Plenty of water and electric points.

Excellent area to explore Bamburgh castle and Holy Island.

 Pleasant site. Helpful owners, level pitches, good sized facilities, although they were a little tired and not as clean as some places, probably due to the number of people using the site.

Some things seemed a little unfinished, but that didn’t stop us enjoying our stay.

Reviewer: Sue Paul 78 reviews from this member

 Arrived to a nice welcome by a warden and offered numerous pitches.

The site is scruffy, no hiding that fact but, it’s clean and tidy and the facilities are good. I thought toilet waste going down the Grey waste wasn’t good though.

The new concrete pitches are good, with electric and water easily to hand but the outlook is rows of scruffy seasonal pitched Caravans with all the junk they have around themselves.

There is nowhere to exercise Dogs unless you leave the site and this site has tent pitches just everywhere so it would be crazy when and if it was filled.

There is a great walk over the fields to the Pub or another around the boggy bay (after walking along a busy road with no pavement) to the castle, that’s a fantastic walk each way but quite a way.

For say Two nights it’s ideal, any longer unless you have a car, I think not.

 Really friendly. After that it all went rapidly downhill.

‘200m from mudflats’- yes, but you can’t get to the coast at all there. Very narrow road. We tried to walk alongside but it was too dangerous.

‘Tranquil’- tiny pitches so we could hear the people either side and behind.

‘River’- litter filled stream

‘Play area’- closed

Toilets- broken today.

‘Showers’- single jet. Went scalding as button needed repressing. 3/5 broken today.

Awful smell coming up once I got a semi-working shower.

Grassy areas were cut but the wet cuttings were just left so we were treading it into the van.

Overall- felt overcrowded and dirty.

Never done this before but we’ve just paid out for a different campsite as couldn’t face going back tonight.

Reviewer: Rachel10 5 reviews from this member

 Level pitch. Bit of a trek to toilets. Site a little untidy as new facilities not fully completed. Close to A1 for stopover but no shops nearby.

This was not a wow site but fair value for money with facilities of acceptable quality.

You can walk to coast very easily but it is not a beach.

It was quite stressful having a strict deadline to arrive by as it is quite possible to be seriously delayed on motorways these days if travelling some distance.

 I stayed here 21-24 May 2018 in a tent with EHU. A great little campsite, the facilities have been recently refurbed, so immaculately clean as new. Plenty of hot water, the showers are powerful, though no temperature control, the cubicles are a decent size to get changed in, though no curtain to save your clothes getting splashed, just keep the shower nozzle facing down! The tent pitches are level. Handwash provided at the sink, the hand dryer is a bit low powered but does the job. Could do with a few more mirrors at the sinks in the gents to get shaved with, had to share the couple that are available.

The owners and staff are very friendly and welcoming with plenty of tips on local knowledge for walks and places to visit. An ideal base for exploring Bamburgh and for visiting Holy Island of Lindisfarne.

I am hoping to return later in the summer. A great place, I had a great time.

 We got to this site after touring the Bamburgh area and finding most other sites not yet open.

The site is flat, with good hardstandings, really necessary specially at this time of year.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities good but getting better as there is a lot of upgrading underway (I assume the site had only just opened for the season).

The site is well placed for this lovely bit of coastline. The owner directed us to a great beach walk to view an enormous seal colony via 2-3 miles of dunes and beach (each way). It was a great experience.

Reviewer: BivvyBoy 24 reviews from this member

 We took our 8 berth tent out for it's first trip, and used an EHU for the first time too. It was a five day family holiday, so we really got to know the area.

The site was great for us - may be because it was so quiet and all we heard were geese flying over - but because it just felt right. The facilities are fine - the hot water it hot, the loos don't smell, and everything is clean. It's not brand new, maybe 30 years old, but is all we needed for a week.

I won't give anyone a reason why Northumbria is a great place to stay let's just say we never had a dull day with places to visit.

The thing that sums the site up for me is this: just before we arrived, our 10 year old threw up with car sickness, all over himself. Think of the Exorcist. The site does not have laundry facilities. But the warden said he'd pop up to his place and wash and dry his clothes for us. Nothing was too much trouble, and that was truly appreciated!

Thank you!
