 Just returned from a 2 week stay at Ord House Country Park in Northumberland. We had previously booked our pitch D4, nice little secluded area of 12 pitches, very tight to get on your pitch though a motor mover is advisable.

Pitches were separated by a hedge and lots of trees about. We were on a fully serviced pitch including TV point. You must pay a £10 refundable deposit for the key fob, although it only provided you with the security barrier code and facility block entry code.

Friendly staff in reception to greet you. Received a discount as booked for 2 weeks.

Facilities very good, always clean and had local Borders Radio playing. Only thing my husband said was the water wasnít very hot for having a decent shave. Quiet site, lovely dog walking available right round the whole site. Onsite laundry ok bit expensive so only used it once as we were there for 14 nights.

They donít like you to hang washing outside, one of their rules. Indoor and outdoor play areas on site, didnít use but it looked great. On site restaurant, good meals ate there 3 times. Great bingo/quiz night on a Friday, even won £70! Didnít go to the entertainment on a Saturday evening but the singers sounded OK.

The entertainment seems to be aimed at the many static caravan owners. The grounds are lovely and well kept, they seem to cut the grass every week.

Tescoís within walking distance (10 mins); Morrisons and Asda also in Berwick upon Tweed about 10-minute drive away, no shop on site though.

3 minutes away from the A1 although didnít hear any traffic noise apart from sirens. 10-minute drive to lovely Spittalls Beach which has free parking. Lovely place to explore Northumberland and southern Scotland from

 Easy to find the site, nice friendly welcome with all the local information I needed. Our pitch was in a small cul-de-sac with maybe 10 pitches in total each separated by hedges.

The site is big but wasn't very busy when we were there. The shower block and toilets are the best I've ever been in, it also has a family room which has a bath.

The grounds are kept immaculate. About 30 min walk into the delightful town of Berwick. Walked along the walls, down the river to what's left of the castle and sampled a few Beers. The market on Wednesday was small and disappointing.

Nearer to the site is the child and dog friendly Salmon Inn Pub at East Ord, a 5 minute walk left out of the main gate.

Landlord and locals very friendly and talkative plus the ale was lovely. They do food but we didn't have any.

The site was a bit more expensive than we normally go for but it was well worth it.

 We stayed here in our campervan for a number of nights on our visit to Northumbria. The campsite was very well kept and all the staff were very helpful.

The facilities were excellent. I loved the family room with an actual bath and large shower. Having the bar and restaurant on site was very handy.

The site was really well placed for visiting many attractions in Northumbria. It is an easy short walk to Tesco Superstore for provisions. It is near enough to walk in to Berwick upon Tweed too, so we didn't have to move the campervan or worry about parking. We enjoyed a visit to the Food and Beer Festival in the town.

We could highly recommend this site and use it again on a further visit to the area.

 No smile on arrival and very business like. Receptionist pulled it around and eventually became helpful but this should be automatic! It was a country park at one time but is a big estate now. Very well kept. Very good shower facilities. Nice restaurants on site with good value and tasty meals. Barmaid very friendly.

Half an hour walk into Berwick upon Tweed. Uphill going back so hopped into a taxi fir a fiver. Too big a site for me but others with children might enjoy the facilities.

 Site is immaculate with level gravel pitches so screw in pegs are required if you have an awning. Toilets/ showers/ dish washing facilities are the most modern and cleanest I've come across on any site. It has it's own bar with well priced drinks which serves food - we never ate there but the plates of food we saw looked nice. Mostly statics hence a very quite site.

Great base for exploring that part of the country. Will definitely use again.

 Good base to explore Berwick and the Scottish Borders. Park caters mainly for statics but touring pitches are a decent size and level.

Park is dog friendly with a dog walk around perimeter.

Tesco and Morrisons both close by.

Berwick is easily accessible, if you have your 4 legged friend with you in Berwick 2 dog friendly pubs to look out for- The Barrels Alehouse(Bridge St. ) and The Brown Bear (Hide Hill)

Reviewer: Klavertjes 5 reviews from this member

 Quiet campsite in a good location, we stayed here for one week with our folding camper. Had a good pitch near the playing field, toilets and showers/washing up area nearby. Touring is a bit of an underdog at this park, since there are a huge amount of privately owned static caravans.

Toilets and showers usually very clean. The key, for which you had to leave a deposit of 10 pounds to enter the facilities, was sometimes bit annoying, since you always had to wait for the other to come back, or to open the door to the ladies before going to the mens.

Went to the clubhouse/pub for a drink a few times, and a meal on our last night. Friendly service, and not too expensive.

Wifi near clubhouse ok, signal not good enough at the pitch. Not too bad, since it was free.

Great location for: Berwick upon Tweed, nice city, interesting walk possible on the city walls; walking the coastal path; a visit to Alnwick Castle and Holy Island.

 Our first visit to this site as we wanted to explore Berwick and do some walking. The site is huge and mainly statics but with pockets dotted around the site for tourers, all with full services. The site is immaculate and even in February all the flower beds were planted up. The facilities are excellent and there is a superb, modern children's playground. It took about 20 - 25 minutes to walk into Berwick which is worth exploring once off the main street.

We didn't visit the on site bar but the Salmon Inn in the village (5 minutes walk) is superb. Do not be put off by its present tired appearance inside, the welcome is brilliant and the food superb. They do a seniors special 2 or 3 course lunch on Thursdays, very good value. They also have an ever changing variety of real ales. This pub is dog friendl and the log fire is very inviting on a cold night.

There is a 2 hour bus service from the gate to Galashiels which goes all the way through the borders and another 2 hour service a 10 minute walk from the gate to Wooler. (turn right outside the gate and walk to the T junction) This is a spectacular journey to this delightful market town with plenty of refreshment stops.

Reviewer: Tour gs 16 reviews from this member

 Visited for a weekend at the end of January for a chance to walk some of the Northumberland coastal trail. The park is BIG with a lot of statics and seasonal pitches. We were given free reign to pick wherever we wanted to pitch up and chose area D which was quiet and secluded. The pitches separated by hedges and with own water and drainage.

Toilet block was immaculate and had a bath for a change wi plenty hot water. Staff wee helpful and the area is brilliant for walking and visiting castles etc.

Will return to the area later in the year however might use a different site as we suspect this one will get busy. It was quiet due to he time of year but quite a few pods and good play areas for kids means loads of kids around in the summer months. Good for families with young children.
