 This was the first time we had stayed in a Motorhome and at a Campsite.

It was easy to find, just off the A1, far enough for traffic noise not to be an issue.

The Reception was closed when we arrived but it was clearly displayed where we were to park.

The site itself was well laid out and impeccably presented. The toilet/shower block was very modern and spotless.

Would definitely stay there again.

 Stopped in initially for one night but when we saw the facilities we ended up staying 3 nights.

Excellent site with top class toilet blocks and large fully serviced hard standing pitches.

We would recommend this site for longer stays as there are loads of attractions in the area and perfect for an overnight north or southbound as its only 1 min for the A1 but amazingly no traffic noise.

This site was recommended to me by a friend and it certainly ticked every box.

Staff were also very helpful and very pleasant.

We will certainly return to this gem

 A beautiful site, cheerful reception staff, spotless toilets and showers. Near to the town of Belford with a bus service to Berwick and Newcastle (this passes all local sea-side spots and is a lovely ride with magnificent views.

My only complaint is that there are no hooks next to the sinks in the showers,

Apart from that I would highly recommend this site.

 Nice stay. The site is very easy to access being on good roads about 1/4 mile from A1. Access is very easy and would take largest of units, all roads are tarmac and in excellent condition. We had fully serviced pitch in the new part of the site and the pitches were generously spaced and a good size. All services and facilities were top quality. Reception were very professional and happy to help.

Location is very good being in the village, pubs, shops and chippy all within an easy stroll. Only tried the Bluebell and all was good. Too many beaches to mention but just about every bit of coastline is worth a visit.

This is a family orientated site and was better for us once the little darlings had gone back to school after the bank holiday but in fairness the large play areas and a sports field are well away from the vans and it was a quiet site despite the number of large family groups.

 We found this site by accident, having intended to stay at the farm shop next door, having to curtail our journey down the A1 in order to pitch up to await the passage of Storm Ali. We found a beautiful site, with large pitches and excellent facilities. After 3 hours the area suffered a power cut, which lasted until the next day. Wind was extreme and we could not walk out.

Luckily the wind had subsided next morning, when we travelled on.

The staff were very helpful and kept us informed as to the likely restoration of power.

We do intend to come back to this site, and spend some time there.

 South Meadows Caravan Park, lovely quiet site. We had 2 weeks at this site as a base for exploring the Northumberland coast/Scotland borders. We had a large level serviced pitch within the main site (inside barrier - £25 refundable deposit for fob) problems getting pegs in on the paving slabs for the awning though. Some of the pitches had the layout facing the wrong way, in that the front of your caravan would be facing the hedge rather than the roadway, ours wasnít like this. This was due to the paving slabs for the caravan and the stones for the awning the wrong way round.

Nice and clean toilet block Ė 2 on site but only used the main one next to reception. Husband found that there were no privacy cubicles to have a shave in the menís side, the ladies side did have privacy cubicles. Only downside I found was the hair dryer didnít have a mirror near it, so found it hard to see what I was doing as a glasses wearer. Was told by a member of staff it was going to be moved. This block had been refurbished earlier in the year.

Friendly staff who are happy to help site your caravan on your pitch if needed, we didnít require this. Lovely information guide given on arrival. Offer Wifi for a charge (daily or weekly rate) we had 3 or 4 G most of the time anyway, so didnít buy this.

Washing machine/tumble dryer on site (£4. 20 for a wash; £2:20 for the dryer) did use these as we were there for 2 weeks. Confectionery and soft drink vending machines on site too. Recycling facilities available. There was slight noise from the A1 but it wasnít intrusive.

There is a huge field for ball games and a lovely childrenís play area as you come onto the site. We didnít use either of these, but they always seemed busy.

3 pubs in the village of Belford (10 minute walk) tried them all Ė The Black Swan; The Blue Bell Hotel and the Salmon Inn. All had good/bad points, we checked their web sites for opening times. Belford also has a fish and chip shop, we didnít use this.

Shopping wise there is a small Co op in Belford; but for larger shops we used Asda and Morrisons in Berwick 16 miles away. There is no shop on site for anything you may have forgotten but there is a Go Outdoors in Berwick for your camping needs.

Found a gem of a beach just outside Berwick, Spittal Beach free parking, play area for the children.

 Just had a 3 night stay at this wonderful site. On arrival drove up to reception which we were met by very helpful and friendly staff. We were on the willows super pitch site which is outside the main complex ( no Barriers) very well spaced out pitches large enough for caravan and awning with car parked at the front all of which are on hard standing. The amenities were a bit of a trek from the super pitches but both the toilets and showers were absolutely spotlessly clean. There was works ongoing building a new amenities block near the super pitches which would b much better due to finish at the end of March. ! The site itself is very accessible being only 1 mile from the A1. You could not hear any road noise. A walk along the road is a very nice farm shop and a lovely fish and chip shop in Belford but only open thurs/fri/sat. The only negative would b kids and the footballs there was a massive playing field with goal posts but why do they want to play around the caravans there r no rules to say they r not aloud to which I think they should put in place. You donít want waking up on a morning listening to the thud of a ball. ! Apart from that itís a wonderful site. !

Reviewer: Safirth 2 reviews from this member

 Spring Bank Holiday weekend at this site was the worst time we've ever spent on a campsite site in 20 years of camping and caravanning, and we've stayed at lots!

The site itself, especially the caravan section is nice and the brand new toilet block is really lovely, other than there are already signs of damage caused (probably) by the people in the tent section.

The main problem with the tent area is that there were gangs of 20-30 adults grouping together every evening drinking, playing loud music, shouting and screaming at each other from about 7pm until midnight, it was worse than being at a football match. We were at the opposite end of the field, so I hate to think what it must have been like for the poor people camping nearby! We daren't go to the toilet blocks at night because these people blocked all the walk-ways and it felt very intimidating having to walk through them, so we had to go the long way around to get to the loos, sadly.

Worse still was that we were up from 1pm until 5pm on Friday night listening to the couple behind us balling at each other. Both were clearly very drunk and were screaming at the top of their heads. The mother was shouting to the children that was going to hurt their father and he in turn was yelling that he'd get the children taken away from her, so then the kids all started crying and pleading for them to stop as well. Us asking them to stop proved useless too, they just came out with abusive language. It was exactly the same the following two nights, but thankfully they were quiet after 1pm.

There is a lovely big field and a separate play area for the kids, but from late afternoon until after 11pm, the tent area was overrun with unsupervised kids shouting and screeching and running wild, chasing behind the tents, pulling pegs out (which were hard to get in in the first place!), squeezing between the hedges from one section of the pitches to another, it was awful. No parents to be seen, they were all busy drinking with their buddies, and when we asked the children to stop going behind the tent all we got was abuse. Sadly, it made them do it all the more once we'd closed our tent up for the night and they were goading us from outside.

Every morning there was rubbish at the top end of the site (caused by the gangs of adults drinking all night), so it must be upsetting for the owners of the site, but I do think that they should have more presence, either patrolling the site or have someone permanently on site that you can go to. All they leave is a mobile number for use in emergencies and I doubt they'd be too pleased about getting a phone call about noise at 3am every day! Someone permanently on site would have heard the noise and could have done something about it before it all got out of hand.

Of the lesser problems, as I mentioned, we had a real problem getting tent pegs in, as the ground was full of stones, making it almost impossible to peg out without having expensive unbendable pegs.

Another (small) grumble is that the owners leave all the grass cuttings down when they're mowing rather than collect them, so you are constantly dragging grass into the tent. It was even worse when we packed up to leave this morning, as the cuttings were stuck all over the ground sheet - not good!

The site is located off the busy A1 and getting across it to travel south was a bit scary - you take your life in your own hands there!

All in all, the site is nice, it's the people using the site that's the trouble. We have never been on a site that was anything like this, and certainly won't be going there again. You shouldn't feel intimidated on any campsite, but we certainly did here; our weekend there was a total disaster.

 What a lovely site beautifully laid out and immaculate, The fully serviced pitches are very well spaced and in a good location but outside the gate that is shut at night. Beware that the hard-core under the gravel is very large stone and it is nigh on impossible to get pegs in for your awning. The showers are good and clean but my wife said she would have liked a stool or similar. The site is very well placed for the area and easy to get to from the A1 just a mile away, we could not hear any traffic at night. We saw some of the coastal sites whilst on our travels and overall we think we picked the best spot to stay. The local farm shop is good but does not stay open late and some produce will not be available by 4 o clock. The village just up the road has local pubs and a paper shop and co-op so you are well served. Be careful pulling out of the junction to go straight on into the village it is hard to see traffic coming from the right. Overall a very, very good site

 Booked here with friends for two nights. Tent pitches really large was impressed. Didn't realise how large site was until we went for walk. Nice play park for children. Lovely clean facilities. Never saw any staff the whole time we were there. I would say the only problem was there should be more blocks of toilets dotted around site as it's long walk to the only block they have from some pitches!
