 There was a lot of rain so the grass area got a little boggy but the caravan was on hard standing,

On New Years Eve they put on a nice Buffet a very friendly pub.

We hope to return in the summer there are lovely views from the site.

It is in a good area for a lot of local attractions.

 The site is basic and yet has all you really require. The toilet and shower facilities are clean and serviceable.

Being located at a pub is great for food and drinks. The log fire is great to warm you prior to hitting the sack.

Great location too, just a short down hill walk into Alnwick town.

Only slight down side is site gets a bit boggy under foot when wet, so you have to be careful not to get stuck with your van.

 Small convenient site with very basic facilities.

Easy 10-15 min walk downhill to town and obviously a little longer to come back up the fairly steep hill. I recommend booking a table if there is somewhere in town you want to eat as we really struggled to get seated anywhere on Friday night. We didn't bother trying on our other two nights.

The site is really convenient for visiting Holy Island, Seahouses, Alnmouth, Cragside etc.

There is only one toilet in a shed, the door of which was difficult to open as it drags on the floor and then is very difficult to lock - my daughter found it impossible and had to resort to holding the door shut. We did have to wait several times to use the loo which was frustrating as campers, as we have no other choice. The queue could easily be kept down if the people with motor homes used their own facilities.

It was reasonably clean, though I think this was down to considerate campers keeping it that way rather than site management cleaning it.

One shower in another shed that worked well and was free. A mop for cleaning up after yourself would be useful as when I used it the floor was very wet.

The pub was friendly, with good choice of beers, serves food and the site was quiet after the pub closed.

 Handy stop on outskirts of Alnwick.

Showers and WC are in clean well-fitted garden sheds;

Good beer and food in the pub.

I'll go again.

It's a pub with a big garden, so has to be child/dog friendly.

Reviewer: Jackie 3 reviews from this member

 This was a real nice caravan park even though it only has enough space for five caravans

The location was fabulous very close to town centre pub

Grounds were very well

Kept plenty of seating areas outside and dogs are allowed which is a plus

Nice pub and great menu for lovely food

Definitely be back for further visits

 Canny little site, staff at the pub were nice.

Facilities are limited but perfectly adequate.

Can walk into Alnwick, its a steep hill, but doesn't take that long.

Reviewer: Rahoons 5 reviews from this member

 A good location as itís within walking distance to Alnwick town centre. The site is behind a pub so is quite small.

The bad: There are hook ups but when we were there one of the hook ups was broken. The hard standing is 2 rows of slabs with grass between. The slabs on one rows tipped up as we drove our motorhome onto it - need some attention.

There is a toilet in a shed and a shower in a separate shed. Both were not very clean when we visited eg shower had brown marks in the shower tray. There is only a cold tap in the toilet.

The good: We received a warm welcome from the staff/ owners ? in the pub and offered help if we needed a longer hook up cable.

There is a super long hose to fill up with water. Some nice views of farmland from certain pitches.

Overall we probably would return due to the proximity to Alnwick but the site needs a bit of attention to get it up to standard.
