 ( caught tab to say they did not reply by mistake, really fast response thank you )

Stop over on way up to Northumberland wonderful small really friendly and helpful owners and helper.

View of water was outstanding and lovely to see the animals up close to pitch

We both said we wished we could stay longer and had planned to stay on way back but the joys of motorhomin broke down in Edinburgh and had to be hauled straight home hope to return one day

 Just stayed at this beautiful campsite for 2 nights, even though the site is undergoing some work this didnít spoil our weekend.

If youíre looking for a beautiful quiet site with fabulous views of the reservoir then this is the perfect place.

The toilets and showers were immaculate at all times.

The family are fantastic, so friendly and helpful.

Cannot wait to see how the site looks once the work is finished.

Will definitely return in the future.

Reviewer: GWTE 25 reviews from this member

 This was our first visit to this site despite it being reasonably close to home and my verdict would be Ė if you like quiet peaceful sites this could be the one for you. It is expected that all music should stop at 8. 30 pm and no noise after 10. 30 pm. We didnít experience any noise at any time. The views of the reservoir from all pitches are excellent.

At present there are 10 pitches on site. The caravan site is on a slope although pitches 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 have been terraced. You will need chocks for all pitches. We were on one of the pitches that were not terraced but it was not too much of a chore to level the caravan.

The site had two showers/toilets, which are kept spotless, although you do need to remember to take a towel with you, as there are no paper towels supplied Ė good for the environment!

At present no meals are being cooked due to high energy prices. There are however teas, coffees, cakes and ice-creams on offer when the shop is open.

There is no wifi on site but the mobile signal was excellent so it was easy to tether the phone to our devices. The television signal was also excellent.

Blanchland is within 3 miles and Hexham is just over Ĺ hour away. Beamish museum is not too far away.

We would definitely stay at this site again.

 We arrived only to be told no restaurant, bar or cafe. The amenities are being refurbished.

We had to drive over a field to reach a "hardstanding". We were assured the ground was solid there had been several motorhomes on it over the weekend.

It rained overnight with strong winds. On leaving the site it was obvious it was boggy. We got a call later in the day offering a pitch in the car park. Unfortunately it turned out expensive £90 for one night.

We ended up with the motorhome at a garage due to the mud clogging a sensor.

Sadly on this occasion it was a bad experience. The only thing going for it was the view.

 We stayed there in our campervan for a weekend. We had a fantastic time.

All the staff are very nice, friendly and made us feel very welcome.

The location is amazing and you can see a lot of work has been done to make this place special.

The food is delicious and so is the Boat Shack lager. The milkshakes are awesome.

I had the biscoff one and need more haha.

We will be back ASAP.

 This place is just stunning, This is our second visit and wonít be the last by far,

Paul, His Family, And staff are the most friendly welcoming people you could ever wish to meet,

The Boat shack serves the finest quality food and drinks to suit everyone at really reasonable prices,

The facilities are spotless and everything exceeded our expectations,

This loving caring family even make time to rescue animals and provide them with a safe caring environment,

The views on site of the Derwent reservoir and surrounding hills are just perfect,

Very peaceful and quiet, The rules on site here mean everyone can expect a brilliant relaxing time without worrying who is gunna turn up next to you,

The only thing my wife and I dislike about this place is having to leave it to go home,

We canít recommend this place enough to people who love a bit of quality in a beautiful place.

 Lovely setting, very family orientated with the site quiet hours from 8pm.

The staff were very helpful, professional and family orientated in their approach and chatting to my son about the animals on site, which all have been rescued animals.

The site is well presented and clean, the food in the cafe was of high standard and the milkshakes have the approval from a 9 year old as exceptional.

Staff 10/10

Site 10/10

Food is 10/10

 Very clean, tidy and quiet site with great views of the nearby Derwent Reservoir, all this with superb woodland walks which are well signposted.

To hear and see an abundance of curlew, lapwings and skylarks was an unexpected delight.

Will definitely return.
