What a wonderful, peaceful site.

We arrived on Friday afternoon, our name was on a chalkboard on our pitch so we could get set up without hunting around for anyone.

The sound of sheep bleeting, cows mooing and singing birds definitely offset the occasional tractor and farm sound.

Site was close to beamish and tanfield railway, and with plenty of shops and eataries local, we didn't feel out in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks for a wonderful Easter.

A lovely Camping and Caravanning Club Certificated Site. Stayed here for three nights on this occasion which is our third visit to this site, as stated in previous review it is a lovely clean, slightly sloping site on a working farm with grass and hard-standings.

There is a small and extremely clean and adequate toilet block (gents and ladies each with a shower) The site is located within the working farm it is very peaceful and offers great views over the valley.

The entrance road to the farm is initially on a well surfaced road followed by a rougher and more sloping road/track, easily negotiated down into the site.

The site is located on the edge of Gibside, which is a must visit, and is within close proximity to Newcastle.

Visited here for 3 nights from Boxing Day, fab little site on a working farm, it was suggested by Suzanne to go up by the shepherds hut as although there is hard standing you need to go across grass to access it, this was helpful also as it sheltered us from the wind as we were there the same time as Storm Barbara!

One Toilet and shower per sex although this didn't appear to be heated but once in the shower was OK, although I did get dressed very quickly.

Visited Beamish and although we had visited before we saw things we hadn't seen, and the next day walked to Gibside from the site (NT) which was beautiful on a cold frosty day, did the skyline walk on the way back and was lucky enough to do it at sunset so had fab views.

Was asked to move down to beside the cow barn on the last night ( we had been warned this could happen so wasn't a problem) and can't believe how peaceful the cattle were overnight, not a peep out of them until they heard the farmers voice in the morning.

There is a pub about a mile away but on a fast unlit road with no path and didn't want to take motorhome out so didn't use it, although looked like nice play. A beautiful site and hope to return again.

A gem of a site. Stayed here for three nights on this occasion, as stated in previous review it is a lovely clean, slightly sloping site on a working farm with grass and hard-standings.

The owner is very friendly and helpful, there is a small and extremely clean and adequate toilet block (gents and ladies each with a shower) Although the site is located within the working farm it is very peaceful and offers great views over the valley.

Will definitely return.

Visited Cut Thorn Farm at the beginning of the month. Lovely clean farmyard and portakabin for showers/toilets. Because of the previous wet weather the grass was very soft and we got stuck deep trying to get onto pitch.

Farmer couldn't have been more helpful. He brought tractor over and when we discovered we had no tow eye (new van, hadn't checked) he tried to find one to suit and actually ended up welding us one.

What wonderful service. Walk to the Pack Horse pub for bar supper about a mile along very busy road but taxi is only about 6. 00 so safer to do that. Would recommend for a quiet night or two.

Stayed here for two nights, a lovely clean, slightly sloping site on a working farm.

The owner is very friendly and helpful, there is a small and extremely clean and adequate toilet block (possibly new) (gents and ladies each with a shower) Although the site is located right in the working farm it is very peaceful and offers great views over the valley.

The entrance road to the farm is initially on a well surfaced road followed by a rougher and more sloping road, easily negotiated down into the site. On the edge of Gibside and close proximity to Newcastle.

Would definitely return.

This is a working farm with space for 5 units. A Camping and Caravan Club certified site. There are also yurts to rent in a separate wooded area.

Accessed via a rather bumpy off road drive pass the farm house - signposted from the main road.

Quietly friendly owners - obviously getting on with dealing with the farm so just seen to take our fee on arrival.

There are a couple of hardstanding areas and some grass pitches situated between a large field and the rear of the cowsheds. There are electric hookups, a freshwater tap and an Elsan disposal point. There is facility to get rid of waste water but difficult to access in a motorhome.

1 toilet and separate shower in a small portacabin like shed near one of the cowsheds. Shower coin operated. There is a sink in the shower side to wash hands separate from the toilet. We preferred to use our own shower so can't comment on efficiency of the shower. Some local tourist info leaflets were on display in the shower area - with guided walk leaflet to Gibside included.

Pitch a little sloped but not enough for us to bother with chocks - some did.

Pitch overlooked field of sheep and lambs with cowshed a few yards behind with cows and calves - occasional cow noises but they were surprisingly quiet through the night! Site felt a little exposed - on a hill - windy during our stay.

A nice walk through a field and woods to the National Trust property Gibside. There are suggested walks around the estate which are interesting. On Friday evenings 6-9pm there is a bar at the Potting Shed cafe near the walled garden at Gibside. There was a hog roast on the Friday evening we visited. I think the bar is open Friday and Saturday evenings in high season. Uphill walk back!

A good site to visit if wishing to take full advantage of the Gibside estate - there appeared to be quite a few activities aimed at families with children - playgrounds etc. On a nice day with weather kind you could spend the whole day there.
