We loved it. Bracken the dog was really friendly and took us for a walk to Hadrian's wall. The value for money is great, its only 5 FOR 1 tent. I do not like the condition of the toilets because there's flies in them.

Excellent access to Hadrians Wall and Chester's Roman Fort al just a 10-15min walk away.

Nicely tucked away in the country side but just half an an hour from Newcastle makes the location perfect.

A real Jekyll and Hyde of a campsite. It is lovely and peaceful during the week but all hell broke out on both of the weekends that we were there. Unfortunately, they accept large groups of people who are there to party on Friday and Saturday nights - cue blaring music from cars, singing, shouting and screaming around camp fires, heavy drinking and teenagers roaming the site and screaming whilst pushing each other on the rope swings. There is a rule that says no noise after midnight but this was not enforced, meaning it went on well into the early hours of the morning! If you are after peace and quiet or have young children, I would avoid it on weekends. We were on the large field, as we arrived on a Saturday and the site was busy. But the smaller field would be the better option, as mostly people in small tents only there for one night. We decided to cut our holiday short by one day as we'd had enough!

The facilities were fine during the week - 2 toilets and 2 showers in the male and female cubicles plus a disabled toilet and shower and one washing up sink. But they were overstretched on the weekends and hardly seemed to cleaned. You are much better staying our if you are there on a Saturday as the party campers don't leave the site.

The site is in a great location for exploring Hadrian's Wall, close to Chesters Fort. It is also very reasonably priced; we paid 15 per night for a tent with 2 adults and 2 children with no EHU.

There are no pubs or shops within walking distance, so you need to be self-sufficient. There is a Tesco Extra in Hexham and you are allowed to use the freezer in the Bunk House on the campsite for your ice packs.

The site can be very windy - it is in the middle of fields. We really struggled to put our tent up when we arrived. There are also lots of tiny green caterpillars that you find everywhere attempting to eat your tent - I even got one in my ear when I was asleep!

The lady and her husband who run the site are very pleasant but won't do anything if you complain. We loved Bracken, the farm labrador but he is allowed to roam the site and did not always like the other dogs. Also, as he is allowed to roam, many of the campers let their dogs run around the field and did not always pick up after them. We also had feral farm cats in our tent at night looking for food.

One I would recommend for a couple of nights midweek but not for a longer stay or on a weekend. We have never had a site as noisy as this and I will learn from my mistake and always check whether sites accept parties of people in the future. As we live in London, we go on holiday for peace and quiet and to get away from anti-social behaviour.

Returned for second visit. Had to abandon stay last year due to torrential rain and cold. Faired better this time. Great to be able to have a fire. Very local for us, only half an hour up the road and yet feels like a real break away. Very reasonable at 5 per adult a night, kids under 12 free. Pubs not really nearby. Site very near to Hadrians wall. Visited Haydon Bridge, Haltwhistle and Carlisle in one day. Although didn't use the showers they seem fine although the floors got very muddy. Site doesn't ever seem crowded. Will use again definitely.

Arrived at this site late afternoon to a friendly welcome from the owner. Plenty of space to choose from and just as well as one of the fields, the one with electric hookups, was occupied by a very large party of adults and children who appeared to be partying hard with loud music, alcohol flowing and riding around on a mini motorbike accompanied by a pitbull style dog. Luckily we were able to set up in a field away from the action - which got worse as the evening went on with mayhem in the washrooms to the extent that my wife was afraid to use the facilities that evening as they were full of drunks shouting and verbally abusing each other. Luckily this party left the next day and our next two nights were peaceful. The owner simply said that they could not tell what clients were going to be like after taking a booking over the internet for a family party, the attitude seemed to be that as long as they paid up then they could do what they liked. The toilet block was then not cleaned at all for the next two days having been left in a filthy state and bins un-emptied, fag ends in an ashtray in the kitchen etc.

Having said all of that the site is in a wonderful position and has superb views, it is also close to Hadrians wall and offers very good value at 5 pppn.

I have just visited with my wife, son, Daughter in-law and two grand daughters (4 and 6).

There are two entrances to the site ensure you take the first as the second is a very tight track and leads to the farm side of the site.

There are 3 fields to choose from, we stayed in the largest, easily 2 football pitches in size.

There are picnic benches all over, fire pits and barbecues easily accessed, fire wood 4 for a good bag full, disposal for chemical toilet and drinking water tap at the field. There are 3 toilet blocks, male, female and disabled all very clean and in good working order.

You could not beat the welcome and helpfulness of the owners and their dog Bracken was adorable and loved visiting all sites especially if you had food on the go.

We took our little dog and there were several others on the site, we had a brilliant time and will definitely be going again.

The only thing to consider is if it is windy choose the smaller field which is more protected.

The views were undisturbed for as far as you could see in all directions, absolutely stunning as was the sun set and sun rise.

Yet again we visited this site. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend this is the place to come. The views are beautiful and it is so peaceful.

As ever the owner made us so welcome, as does their dog, to us it is like returning home. The weather was excellent and we had plenty of room. We like the fact that you just pay for who goes camping and no added extras like some sites. The walks in the area are plentiful and there is an excellent pub in Humshaugh where the food is lovely and the prices are good.

What a great site. Owners very pleasant and helpful too. Their dog 'Bracen' sounds like bracken (no 'k' on the dog tag) is a real character. We were in the smaller of the 2 fields which did tend to be a little hard for the tent pegs, but that aside, flat, well drained, water nearby and of course, the fire pits. Takeaway food available if ordered before 6pm. Free hot showers & clean toilets. Oh. 5. 00/head per night, great value. We will definitely be going back again :-)

We had a lovely weekend at Greencarts farm and found other camper's reviews very helpful. It was just what we were looking for and exceeded our expectations. It is in a great spot, close to areas of interest (Hadrian Wall Country) country villages, Corbridge and Hexham. Situated in the middle of beautiful countryside it was perfect for my two dogs and there is a pleasant 2.5 mile walk right on the doorstep. The toilet block and washing facilities were clean and tidy and the owners welcoming, friendly and approachable.

All in all an excellent weekend despite the wet weather! It was also refreshing to have to pay for only people and so my partner joined us with an extra car and with no extra cost. Lovely to not be ripped off by having to pay for doggies. Refreshing. Hope it stays that way!

Just had a lovely weekend at Greencarts, Lorna had not been camping for 15yrs and said she was going to sleep in the car, but as soon as the tent was up, BBQ on and a few Fosters later she was all up for a night in the tent.

In the morning our tea in the flask was cold so we asked Sandra if we could make a cuppa, She was so helpful and made our stay so pleasant.

We will be going back in the summer and looking forward to seeing Sandra and her lovely family, not forgetting Braken ( their dog ).

Lovely small site in unspoilt countryside. The site is on a working farm and the owners give a friendly Northumbrian welcome to all. Perfect for exploring Roman Wall country. On the route of the Hadrian's Wall bus (AD122).

You need to come prepared - it is a long drive to the nearest supermarket, restaurant or even pub. Also you may wish to bring a torch to see your way back from the loo at night.

All camp-site basic amenities (water, toilets, showers, waste disposal, dish washing area) provided and all clean and tidy. Parking available on hard-standing or next to your tent. Large flat grassy field, plenty of room for family groups. Wonderful views over the rolling countryside of the Tyne Valley.

Breakfast, packed lunches and evening meals available to order, very reasonably priced too. Or you can order an Indian meal to be delivered.

We had a lovely weekend on this friendly site. The route of the Hadrian's Wall long distance footpath runs through the farm only minutes from the camp-site. Fantastic scenery and heritage (although we were glad of our waterproofs and packed lunches, it IS a remote area). After walking to Housesteads Roman fort we were able to get the AD122 back and the driver cheerfully dropped us at the end of the lane,only 5 minutes walk back to our tents.

I upgraded to the bunk-barn for our second night. The clean, cosy, well-equipped, self-catering kitchen-diner was very welcome after a day in the wind and wet.

So if you like being 'away-from-it-all', camping in proper countryside, drifting off to sleep with the owls hooting, waking up to glorious views and finding warm North-East hospitality I would recommend this site.
