Many guests use the park as a base for the Northumberland coast; other famed destinations like Hadrian's Wall and Alnwick Castle are within easy reach.

Fishing is available on site; pick up a permit at reception.

    Very quiet and lovely walk along the river into Ovingham. Adam, the owner, was very welcoming and gave us some good tips about the local area. Other good walks in the area.

    The bathrooms were very clean but in need of updating. The price of £24 a night seemed a bit steep as it was low season.

    It was certainly quiet and peaceful and the electric only cut out once its only a 10 minute walk to the town

    Disliked: 

    the pitches were far too small even for my small 6mtr motorhome no room to mover the van and certainly not level hard standing the toilet facilities were very basic but apt but no sign of a chem disposal unit or waste water disposal unit no site diagram and the bus timetable was illegible due to water ingress . a lot of negative points that can be rectified easy and such a pleasant chap to deal with

    Site really nice. In a great location which was very quiet. The owner was very friendly and even though we were there only 3 nights he checked on several occasions that we were OK and happy with our plot. The White Swan hotel about 15 minutes walk from the site is worth a visit for a meal or a drink and had live sports if that’s what you want. I

    Disliked: 

    Only one toilet in the gents. It was quiet when we were there so not a problem but if the site is busy I can imagine a bit of a queue at times. Having said this the toilet block and shower were very clean.
