 The site is well organised for holiday campers.

The facilities are good for washing, fridge freezer and clean showers.

We did not use on site kitchen or pizza kiosk.

The pitch was large without electric for our tent with enough space for car.

It is good that the site is quiet at night. The nearest shop and pub is in Belford Village.

Well located for Bamburgh castle and village.

 Peaceful secluded site, surrounded 360d by trees so well protected from the weather. Woken each morning by the sounds of the birds and the babbling stream along one side of the site.

Good size pitches, shower/toilet block good, hot water every time. Washing area with fridge freezers to use.

Very clean tidy site.

Shop could be better stocked, especially as no shops/bars nearby.

No Wi-Fi on site, which was an issue for us due to work, but great to get away from it all.

I would recommend it for couples mostly, though there is a lovely play area for young children at the beginning of the site away from the vans/tents.

 Good level site with both grass or hard standing pitches. We had asked for hard but given grass! As it was pouring with rain we asked to change and it was no problem.

Good toilet and shower block and great indoor washing-up area! Large rank of fridges and freezers for free use by campers.

Large area for recycling and clear labelling for disposal of waste.

Short walk from the coast as on Coastal Path with great views, birds on mudflats.

Also on bus route to Berwick or Alnwick. Short drive to Holy Island, and Seahouses is great for eating out and sea views.

 We arrived on a Sunday during a bank holiday weekend, the site was really busy with families etc. We were shown a grass pitch with EHU which was large enough for what we needed.

The nearest toilets were behind us in the reception area (these close at 9pm and reopen at 7. 30am). After that the toilet/shower block were on the other side of the campsite - these were always clean and plenty of hot water.

The site was quiet after the weekend, so there was never a queue for the shower.

Staff were friendly and there was a small shop which stocked some basics provisions, and the nearest shop was off the A1.

The area was peaceful and not far from Budle Bay - which is a nature reserve and mud flats, the nearest beach is Bamburgh, which was stunning and is either a short drive or for the more active a 3 mile walk along the coastal path. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again!

 Super nice campsite. Very safe and quiet.

But I did think it was pretty pricey and kinda stiff with rules and even though the place was at maybe 30-40% capacity we couldn’t choose our pitch and after paying an extra £7 for a river spot (making it over £40 total!), we got given the worst river pitch with no view of the stream.

Plus the pitches were all really close together when we could have all had some space.

Bonus points though for feeling like I was in a 90’s teen movie and if I was a teenager I would have had the best summer of my life there.

 Lovely site. Good location. Quiet.

The facilities were clean and sufficient. Site well set out. Welcoming staff.

Friendly campers.

The ‘dark skies’ claim is the only aspect that doesn’t quite work since the lights from the washing block tended to be on most of the night.

Missed the use of a washing machine, so this is one area they could consider augmenting. But otherwise, really enjoyable stay.

 The campsite itself is very nice and green.

It's surrounded by trees and there's a river.

It's a very relaxing spot.

The minus I have noted is: there's no locks in the toilets.

 Very tightly packed campsite. I know it was half term and bank holiday but there really were too many units on site.

Some pitches had no space to sit outside. Lots of noisy dogs too, some people exercised their dogs around the tents, which one of the wardens thought acceptable! Not if the dog pees on your tent!

Cold showers all week as there was a problem. To be fair the wardens tried to get this resolved but not until the end of our stay.

Shame really as the site is in a lovely location. Won’t be going back.

 The best thing about this site is it's location. It is a short drive to the coast and Bamburgh.

The pitches are very tight. We visited over half term and it was very busy, we barely had enough room to peg out the tent. There are too many pitches for the size of the site.

The facilities were clean but the shower was unreliable running hot and cold.

I felt the rules were applied too heavily, I understand they have to keep the peace but I have never been at a site before where they seemed to love so many rules. I prefer a more relaxed attitude/ atmosphere personally.
