 Great views from this immaculately kept site. The cafe is amazing.

The owner is very attentive & proud of his site ( rightly so) Please don't think he is too in your face, I just found him a nice guy.

Access is good I have a large twin axle van.

The area has lots to see & explore.

I would definitely recommend this site.

 Lovely site with wonderful views of the reservoir. Tidy compact toilet/ showers. We were the only ones on site at start of season midweek.

Site owner Paul was very accommodating, helpful and gave lots of information about site and surrounding areas.

As I say we were there before all amenities on site were open so we missed using the what will be now open to public. Large yurt with seating area where I'm told they have get togethers and singalongs.

Another area with large screen tv across from well stocked cafe. Lama's, sheep moorhens and pheasants among wildlife on site. Great walk around reservoir taking around 4 to 5 hours taking in plenty of wildlife.

We even managed to catch a RAF Nimrod flying low over the water. So even though we weren't able to use all amenities we had plenty to keep us occupied.

Paul has plans for more pitches so it's a growing site.

 Lovely clean site with amazing views.

Toilet and showers were nice and clean. Really peaceful and fantastic for star gazing.

Limited opening times of the on site facilities cafe/bar.

Just one note if you take your dog then you have to sit outside as dogs mot allowed in the cafe or bar.

Reviewer: Arniesdad 18 reviews from this member

 A bit on the disappointing side. On the good side Paul, the owner, was friendly and the view from the pitches was very attractive.

On the not-so-good side the pitches were small & some were sloping. Drinking water, chem disposal etc were fine but tucked away in a corner.

Showers/toilets were available on leaving a £10 refundable deposit.

Not particularly cheap at £30/night but situated in a lovely part of the country (Blanchland well worth a visit & lots of nice walks around there).

 Lovely well cared for site, nice walks and plenty to visit nearby.

Could be difficult for older visitors due to gradient and location of water/toilets etc.

Cafe/bar only open restricted hours.

 We stayed 2 nights and couldn’t have asked for more. The owner and all staff couldn’t be more helpful

Well ran and organised.

Lovely food and drink at the Boat Shack,

Views to die for,

Stunning location

We’re looking forward to going back and sampling some live music

Reviewer: Steviemo747 1 review from this member

 Lovely site, a little steep trying to get on some of the pitches (thought my clutch would go) but once set up all fine.

Fantastic views over Derwent Reservoir and plenty of walks in area.

Only 2 shower/toilet facilities for the site which are shared with everyone pitched on site but seems to work fine.

 This was our 2nd visit ( loved it the first time so booked again).

Blown away by the view, the friendliness of the owners, the facilities. It’s just perfect.

Booked again 😃 for August.
