Just come back from this site after an easter break,loved it that much we have booked up for may bank holiday. The site is unspoilt beauty in the kielder forest. Great if you love walks or cycling. Caters for Dogs and there is no noise policy after 10.30 so its good for families aswell. There is a small shop onsite which sells the basics and a one in the village which is a short walk away. The toilet block is quite old but is cleaned every day and had hot water every time we visited. Also has a veg preperation area and a place to wash up if camping. Has a laundry room which costs £3 for washer and £3 for dryer.
