 The site is divided into two main areas for tourers.

Field A is for seasonal vans, Field B is further divided into two areas, upper and lower.

The upper area is nearly all seasonal and hardstanding with grass, whilst the lower area is all hard.

Our preference is the upper area with grass. I only gave 9 out of 10 because of the main touring area being all hard.

Otherwise a great site.

 Lovely peaceful place, wishing we had the time to stay longer.

We will be back.

Julie is so helpful and friendly and it is clear that a lot of care and attention has been paid to making everyone welcome.

 A lovely campsite in a beautiful part of the world. The host, Julie, was very friendly and offered me a choice of pitches.

I was hoping to stay two nights, but I had to cut my trip short due to exhaustion, as my activities on the first day were quite intense!

The toilets and showers were very clean, and I would have given them a higher rating, but there was only one shower block and it was a bit of a walk away.

However I really enjoyed my stay, and I will definitely visit again.

 Excellent from start to finish. Julie text early on our arrival day to advise how to access site and which pitch.

We had pitch 33 with a tap and EHU next to the facilities block which was handy. Hardly any of the seasonal caravan pitches were in use so the site was quiet.

There were a few backpacker tents each night and the hobbit huts were in use. Level pitch with good access. Touring area was terraced in 3 rows - facilities on top row.

Fantastic wooded area with ancient trees and a stream - Dufton Ghyll Wood - with direct access from the back of the site.

Amazing for dog walking. Adjacent small public car park and children's play area. Easy access to Pennine Way for High Cup Nick Walk. 4 miles uphill to get there but worth it for the views.

Also a good walk up Dufton Pike - circular walk of about 5 miles but quite a strenuous climb to the top for 360 degree views. Julie was very friendly and amenable.

She was busy working each day but found time for a chat.

Only thing we might change would be the addition of a second washbasin in the facilities, or a private washbasin cubicle would be perfect.

 Weíve tried to get on to this site before, but this weekend we got lucky.

What a fabulous site! We wanted 3 nights but it was full on the Friday, so we booked Saturday and Sunday.

Julie texted us at 10am on Saturday to say the pitch was free.

That is incredible service. The site is lovely, big pitches with hook-up and water.

Clean toilets and showers.

Great walks straight from the site.

There arenít many touring pitches.

Book well ahead - or donít, so we can stay again! Excellent site.

 Great little site- Owners extremely helpful and friendly.

Great walking area- Dufton Pike, High Cup Nick and woodland walks direct from the site.

One quibble- and one only- there is only one shower cubical in each facility which is serving 20 or so pitches- we were there late season so it was quiet and therefore not a problem but I imagine if the site was full it could be an issue.

Overall excellent !

 We stayed for one night (on Bank Holiday weekend) on the overflow campsite. The views are stunning!

Only one unisex toilet on the site but that wasn't a problem.

The owners were more than helpful and the pub, a 5 minute walk away, was brilliant.

I can't rate the site highly enough! An amazing place!

 Excellent location if you wish to climb up to magnificent High Cup Nick. And there are plenty of other hills to climb.

Small peaceful village in a truly wonderful area.

The owners are extremely friendly.

Reviewer: Hodders83 3 reviews from this member

 This is a great site. The host was really friendly and helpful.

They had all the required social-distancing measures in place and was really well organised.

The shower was one of the best I've had at a campsite.

The only down-side was that there was no shop open for supplies in the local area.
