 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.

 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.

 Great little site close to pubs, there was a couple of different ones, we went up the road about a mile to the lambs arms, great scran. close shops and a beautiful walk to the river and park, what the kids loved.

We got electric hookup with easy. kids loved the rope swing as we sat round the fire pit

Not a bad little site at all, will defo go back.

Reviewer: Chrisandsandra 40 reviews from this member

 Based on the reviews on here we booked 4 nights on this site.

Sadly it did not live up to the reviews and in our opinion, and that of two other couples who we talked to on site, it was a huge disappointment.

The village itself is very nice with 4 pubs and a Co-Op. The excellent Wylam Waggonway cycle path passes just outside the site and there is public transport (bus and rail) to Hexham and Newcastle a very short walk from the site.

On arrival we were pounced upon at the gate and immediately asked for the full payment, with no real greeting or customer service. We were told to set up anywhere we wanted, with no advice about distancing etc. No other information was given and we had to ask where the toilets, water etc was (it was not obvious).

The site itself is basically just a flat lumpy field but it was adequate.

The 'facilities', such as they were, left a lot to be desired. They consist of a single toilet with an old stone sink in a brick built shed that was not cleaned for the whole 4 days that we stayed there. There was toilet paper on the floor, the flush handle was gaffa taped together and there was old ingrained dirt everywhere, including on the first aid kit. The single sink was being used for handwashing, a washroom and washing dishes. There was no hand santiser or any means of cleaning the surfaces anywhere on the site, nor any way of drying your hands.

There is a fresh water tap and a toilet emptying facility, a brick built hole with an old dustbin lid on top as a closure, next to this.

The waste bins were full to overflowing and not emptied at all during our stay, with notices saying 'Please take your rubbish home. Handling it is a risk to us' - hard to do if you are touring.

During our stay the entrance to the site was changed from a flat farm gate access to a steep ramp with unprotected sides, made up of what looked like hardcore, at a 90 degree angle to a narrow farm lane. There were no barriers to the side of this and it was unlit. In our 6m van found the turn sharp but exited ok. However a couple of large caravans really struggled.

We have used many CS/CL sites in the past and have usually found them good value for money. For £20 a night including electric this site was way overpriced. We will not return.

 Lovely family run site kept clean and tidy.

Owners very friendly and helpful. Situated within walking distance to the village and some excellent walks right outside the campsite.

Reviewer: Jmvrs3 1 review from this member

 The site was perfect for our needs. We travelled with our cat and the location was ideal, well away from roads and very quiet.

The presence of a resident cat encouraged us to think it would be suitable. The owner was lovely, very helpful and friendly but not at all intrusive.

We did not use the facilities as we have our own. Super pub grub within walking distance, as well as shops.

All in a great stay. We will stay again and recommend it to others.

Giving 10/10 for facilities and child friendliness because there is no 'not applicable'. I am sure they were fine!

Good places to visit nearby, we went to Corbridge and to the Alwinton show.
