 Has possibilities but too expensive for what it is. Toilet is a tiny shed and it's take your own toilet paper.

Emptying your own toilet looks basic but works well. Water on site. Dog friendly. Very uneven drive in and our car bottomed.

Wylam is great though and a good few walks around. Near to Close House Golf Course.

Electric system is weird at moment but expect it to be sorted. It takes more vans and tents than stated. There were 10 tents around the toilet shed one of the days.

 First the positives. This is the perfect location for walkers and cyclists, being within a few metres of walking and cycling trails and a 5 minute walk from the railway station from where there is a regular service to Newcastle but also direct trains to places like Carlisle, Whitby and Morpeth.

It is a spacious site and has lovely views. The toilet is clean and there is EHU, chemical disposal and a drinking water tap. It is also very relaxed and we were largely ignored by the owners.

However…given the £25 per night price tag (up £5 from 2020 and not on the website at the time of booking), I would have expected rather more in the way of facilities.

The single toilet was housed in a flimsy shed and had only cold water with no soap or sanitizer. This might be adequate if it was only being used by the 5 touring vehicles but caravans are also stored here and several owners had overnight stays while we were here (not sure this is in keeping with the site’s Camping and Caravanning Club’s certified status?) as well as tents, putting a lot of pressure on that one loo.

There is electric hook up but for some reason the pitches are on the opposite side of the field from this so extension leads are provided. Unfortunately, this means that cars are regularly driving over the leads. And the policy for getting rid of grey water is to let it out onto the grass, which I guess is their problem, not ours but seems unusual!

My overall feeling is that, although we enjoyed our stay, we did feel we were being taken for mugs (a view shared by several other campers we spoke to) and that our £25 fees were helping them complete their Forest school project, rather than on the upkeep of the site.

As regular campers, we would expect to pay no more than £15 for such a basic site, with an additional payment for EHU so £20 max and even that’s a bit steep. And if the price was published, you do at least know what to expect.

 I agree entirely with the previous June 2021 review.

The location of the site is perfect. Easy access around the area by train & lots of very good walking & bike routes.

It is a spacious site with lovely views & right by the river & also the Wagon Way walking/cycling route.

There were definitely more than 5 caravan/motorhomes on the site plus tents so 1 toilet housed in a shed not adequate & also against certified status.

Most of the occupied caravans (there were a few unoccupied which I think are used at weekends) were on the opposite side of the field to the electric supply. This meant long extension leads had to be used trailing across the middle of the site. Also, the electric was low wattage because it tripped twice when we had water heater on with low wattage kettle or toaster.

We have never before visited a site where there is nowhere to empty grey water. Letting it out on the field is not very hygienic (especially with Covid) when other people/children might be sitting/playing on the grass after we left.

There were no signs to the site & we found it very difficult to find, initially turning into the old entrance & having to turn around. The entrance was over quite rough ground.

We chose this site as we were visiting relatives 2 miles away. Consequently, we were usually only there overnight & first thing in the morning. It was just as well as in the day there was noisy building work going on. Also, there was quite a bit of noise from the Forest School run by the owner.

We thought the cost was extortionate @ £20 + £5 for low wattage electric. The next site we visited had proper electric & a fully serviced pitch for £15 per night!

 Excellent site close to many places of interest in Northumberland with a regular train service to Newcastle City Centre. Entrance to field is now a few yards down a narrow unmade track. Large level field with electric hookup.

Grass cuttings are left on ground which get walked into motorhome. Toilet is very basic with no toilet paper, soap or sanitizer. We used our own facilities.

Water and chemical disposal next to toilet. No sanitizer provided.

Village has 4 pubs, a small Co-op and a Spar/Post Office.

£15 per night plus £5 per night for EHU. Friendly owners.

Reviewer: Peteji 1 review from this member

 Site staff were very friendly polite and genuinely nice people. I wouldn’t recommend the site if travelling in a tent. There was no Toilet paper, soap or hand sanitiser.

All of the site use the same water tap and no Covid/ cleaning appeared to be in place.

I wouldn’t recommend people using tents.

 Lovely family friendly run site in a perfect location to visit places such as Hadrian's Wall and Chester's Roman fort and Museum.

Our third time staying now and we hope to be able to return again soon.

 Nice peaceful campsite in an ideal location in Wylam village, a good walking distance to 4 pubs and a couple of shops.

The toilet needs improvement though as one toilet for the whole site is not enough and was very basic.
