    We have been before and knew the area/park, we were met at the pitch last time by a friendly guy who plugged in our van and chatted to us about the site, these are points we had liked but were sadly missing this time.

    Disliked: 

    The numbers on the pitches are really worn and some impossible to read.
    We were given a pitch that had a large mound of gravel in it.
    When we were given another pitch it was half the size of the one we booked..
    The gravel was then moved around by a young boy with a wheelbarrow shovel and rake for the next 2 days even putting it around our van at 8am!!!
    The grounds were unkept, very muddy with no attempt to make it look any better
    Fire hydrants in boxes had blown over and just left
    Toilet and shower block small basic and dirty

    What a lovely site, very friendly welcome and very obliging, We stayed for 2 nights 22nd Feb 2020, woke up to snow this morning, just made the site look even prettier.
    Very well kept, toilets and showers very clean, well stocked shop and a great club house serving a great variety of food. Set in a valley with a shallow river running through the site. A 5 minute walk in to Wooler, nice little village with plenty pubs and cafes and a big Co Op supermarket. You couldn't want anything else. Will definitely be returning.

Local attractions

Trip-trap over the bridge from Riverside Country Park to Wooler, a pretty medieval market town with some alluring eateries, pubs and shops, and the ideal starting point for walks into the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park. Cycling, fishing, golfing and horse riding fans will also find rich pickings nearby.

If you haven’t explored the Northumberland coastline before, you’re in for a treat. Expect atmospheric ancient edifices in spectacular surroundings, such as Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne; seaside villages like Seahouses, where you can jump aboard a sea safari boat to the Farne Islands; and miles and miles of nature reserves and wide sandy beaches.

You can follow Hadrian’s Wall westbound from its start point in Wallsend, stopping off at Roman forts in scenic settings as you head in the direction of Carlisle; travel along peaceful country roads to explore the Scottish borders; or south to visit Alnick Castle and the Alnick Garden, contemporary gardens with one of the world’s biggest treehouses.

For city lights, hit the A1 for an easy ride to Newcastle and Gateshead, both buzzing with culture (try the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art or a gig at the Sage Concert Hall), museums, football, restaurants, nightlife and shops; or head further north for a day trip to Auld Reekie to explore the many-splendoured delights of Edinburgh.
