We've tried to make our pitches as spacious and as accessible as possible within our site. We've worked with the original layout of the former RAF base which we've repurposed to create a simple, clean, family friendly site with great access.
We have 15 grass camping pitches and 15 grass campervan pitches available on-site. All 10m wide by a min 6m deep allowing space for awnings and plenty of room for creating your own space. Fire pits and BBQs are allowed too. We've split our grass pitches into separate areas for families, adults and smaller PUP tents so you can select the area to suit your needs.
On our campervan friendly site in Northumberland, we have 8 gravelled campervan pitches with plenty of grass space for an awning, or for bigger motorhomes or tourers, we have 5 larger grass and gravel Motorhome hard standing's with a grass area to the side for awnings and to the rear there is grass mound for privacy. All of these pitches have a 6amp EHU included.
If comfort and packing light is more of your thing, we have some rather nice glamping tents for hire.
We have 5 fantastic "roast pumpkin" Bell Tents and 2, larger Blue Bell Tents for those who like to have a little more comfort when camping. Each tent has a double bed as standard and single chair beds for extra guests. They also have a small campers kitchen complete with single gas hob, whistling kettle, basic pots and pans to cook up a nice breakfast, cups and crockery. There's an outside, gravelled area with table and chairs and a steel fire pit with log store (logs to be purchased on site).
Lights are solar and battery powered but we do have electric hookup points to each tent if you need to bring any home comforts such as a hair dryer.
We have 5 toilets and 5 hot, gas powered showers available in the centre of the site and then a further 2 of each in a smaller block near the motorhome service area and PUP field. Each toilet is mains flushing and has a hand washing basin. These are all unisex, individual units.
One of the shower units is larger for family changing and has a bench for baby changing.
We have two separate areas, one near each amenity block with sinks for washing dishes and separate sinks for washing hands/brushing teeth. All with hot water.
Chemical waste, drinking water taps and grey water disposal points are also available as well as large waste and recycling bins.
We have some family friendly extra touches on site to make your camping experience a memorable one.
For kids, we have a play area with climbing frame, swings, swing-ball and plenty space to run around.
We have a pop-up bar in a converted shipping container that we call "The Gin Tin". This serves cold, draught and bottled beers and ciders, spirits and soft drinks, as well as some pub snacks and milk. The bar is open from 5pm daily.
There's a large, communal seating and picnic area with lots of tables and chairs for those who like to socialise.
Occasionally we have some local food vendors on site too, including Indian street-food, woodfired pizza and fresh pasta. Keep an eye out on socials for dates.
Our site is currently in phase 1 of construction but we have plans to continuously improve whilst retaining the space and comfort we have worked hard to create for our guests.
Our second phase of site development will include the addition of 16 more grass campervan and camping pitches with electric hookups and additional toilet and shower facilities. Due to be complete for Spring 2023.
