 Lovely site but a bit pricy for what's there is here. £63 for 2 adults and a dog for 2 nights.

Bar not open and cafe/ restaurant limited opening with coffee and cakes.

Toilets clean. A little disappointed. Had planned to stay longer but chose not to because of cost.

 Brilliant site, overlooking Holy Island. Large, level hard standing pitches and decent facilities.

Excellent bothy bar and cafe on site.

Short drive to Holy Island, Berwick, Bamburgh and Eyemouth.

Lindisfarne Inn, 1 mile away, does good food abs drink.

 Beautiful views across the bay to Lindisfarne and surrounding area. Spotless facilities on a code access. As previous reviewers have said, the hard standings are very close together and both nights we had neighbours who liked their radio on quite loud even at 7am.

Information about the area and where we could walk was sadly lacking. We had to take a chance and hope we werenít trespassing when we walked down to the causeway and circled back up to the site.

The restaurant looked good but the menu was very limited and the bar is only open at weekends.

A beautiful, well cared for and presented site but lacking any personal touch. We had no contact with anyone throughout our stay. I know COVID restrictions are still in place but a word of welcome or a check to see if we were ok would have been appreciated especially as this was the most expensive site we stayed on during a two week trip which included Edinburgh.

Check in is 3pm which is much later than anywhere else we have stayed and we had to waste several hours before our arrival. Irritatingly, whilst we were there, other people were turning up from around 1pm.

Iím not sure we would go back but the views make it well worth a visit.

 Quite an expensive pitch for £25 (plus £3 for the 2 dogs) but you do have a great location with views over to Lindisfarne & Bamburgh castle with chance of a spectacular sunrise.

We'd go back. Vans all get a concrete hard standing with grass to the side & all have hookup included in the cost whether you need it or not.

Facilities were spotless & on a keycode. Fresh water & waste disposal in the van area. It was mid week mid October & there was 1 tent & 12 vans on site.

No noise or rowdiness as mentioned in early reviews. Very peaceful. We had breakfast in the restaurant & it was excellent.

Covid-19 measures were exceptional, including a contactless temperature test on entry to the restaurant.

 A lovely site, perfectly positioned for views of Holy Island & the coast. Lovely, adequate facilities & also a lovely Bistro too.

The site is small but lovely.

However it seriously needs a warden.

The curfew or quiet time is 11pm but drinking, noise, music and even a fire etc. Was going on into the early hours.

People with little or no regard for others.

I asked my female neighbour to please be quiet at 2am!

Only to be told to F++k Off!

Not good.

I did report this to the campsite managers the next day - as no-one is there at night, and they immediately blacklisted this poor excuse for a person.

However, if there was a warden or a manager present after hours / at night - this sort of thing would not occur.

Having said all the above - it is a lovely, perfectly positioned site with a lot to offer.

 We spent New Year at Beal and itís a great little site.

Itís been updated with modern showers etc.

Closest site for access to Holy Island. Views from the site are excellent.

Bothy Bar and cafe are lovely. Lindisfarne Inn, 20 minutes walk away, is also a great pub.

 Fantastic site with great views overlooking holy island. The road can get a little busy depending on tide times. (Manuel) kept the showers toilets and area round the pitches spotless. Great location for exploring Northumberland coast.

 One of the best situated sites in the UK!

A new site that has had plenty of money spent on it in a thoughtful way.

You can walk alongside the road to the start of the Holy Island causeway and you are behind a hedge, so out of the traffic. It is approx. 1 mile to the start of the causeway and then around 2. 5 miles into the village itself but unfortunately this part has to be shared with the traffic, which is generally very considerate of pedestrians. The site is dog friendly as is the ĎBothy Barí offering good pub style food and a well-kept cask ale. The toilets/showers are new and professionally done with good attention to detail. Pitches are small but adequate and access onto the site is very easy. The whole site has large steel gates which are closed overnight and seems secure, with a key code to use the facilities. There is no dog walk on site, but the route to Holy Island starts just outside the gates and this is well surfaced with grass verges.

During the day the restaurant doubles as a cafť and there are many picnic benches on the patio with glorious views across to Lindisfarne.

The owners were happy for us to vacate pitches early and leave our vans in their large car park. It took around 1. 5 hours to walk from the site into Lindisfarne and then we took the shorter ĎPilgrims Wayí path across the bay. Obviously you have to check the safe crossing times. We walked barefoot, as in places it was almost like quicksand and boots would have been soaked. The way is well marked with posts along the route and itís fantastic to think you are following a route thatís been used for the best part of 2, 000 years!

A lovely atmospheric site with a magical location that we will certainly return to.

 Lovely location with fantastic views from every pitch and excellent shower facilities. However, we would only visit in low season as we felt it would feel very claustrophobic if the site was full. The pitches are far too close to each other and you would struggle to get an awning up on most of them. Your pitch is allocated so if you want to face onto Lindisfarne ask for pitches 11-14. When we arrived on a Thursday afternoon the place was empty, so it was fabulous. However, on Friday afternoon another three units arrived and we were all allocated pitches alongside each other so were all on top of each other. There are 14 pitches in total and it would be much better if there were only 10, with more space between them. Or even if the layout was changed. The footprint is massive but all the pitches are crammed together with a huge space in the middle.

If this doesn't bother you then you'll be more than happy with the site as we had nothing else to complain about!

 Spent a few days here. Lovely campsite with fab views (weather permitting). The Barn does lovely food but isnít dog friendly. The Bothy Bar is but only open at weekends this time of year. It looks a lovely bar though. The site is spotless and the staff friendly. We will be back.
