Overview

Great small and friendly site at the top of the farm.

This review is for Longbank Farm

Great small and friendly site at the top of the farm. 5 hookups , toilet and water facilities - no showers. Stayed overnight on 1st January - easy to access with motorhome and friendly welcome. Being cold January we were the only ones there but we were lovely and warm in our motorhome. Facilities basic but great if you know what to expect and are prepared for cold weather. Will stop there again at any time of the year.

All that is good about Certificated Site camping.

This review is for Longbank Farm

All that is good about Certificated Site camping. If, like us, you are a fan of CS caravanning, this is a little gem. A true farm site, it is level with 2 hard standings. A very easy site to access along good but quiet roads. We would recommend (as does the site owner) approaching via Longhoughton from the north. The southern approach is fine but the northern approach is just that bit easier. Caroline was very helpful and friendly and provides an information hut like we've never seen before! Absolutely packed with information both locally and further afield. Highly recommended.

What a brilliant find and a refreshing change to the other large campsites in the area.

This review is for Longbank Farm

What a brilliant find and a refreshing change to the other large campsites in the area. Caroline was really friendly and welcoming and very relaxed. She tolerated our 2 wee girls pestering her to 'stroke the horses' with enormous patience and grace :) there's no shower here so we, having no shower in our caravan, couldn't really stay too long. However, the toilet was spotless, the information point was really helpful and if we'd had a shower we'd have stayed for a week! There's only room for 5 hook ups so this is the most tranquil of sites. Rolling countryside, beach close by (view of sea from the sight) and perfectly placed for the main towns and sights in Northumberland. It goes without saying we are planning the next trip to Longbank already. Loved it!!!!

This review is for Longbank Farm

Situated at the rear of farm buildings, the site is spacious, and the horses, sheep and geese in the surrounding fields keep you entertained. Caroline Chrisp will give you a warm friendly welcome. There's a toilet and information kiosk on site, though no shower if that's important to you. Otherwise, if you like peace and quiet, this would suit you. With views of the sea in distance, surrounded by fields, and the nearby towns within easy travelling distance include Alnwick, Amble, Warkworth, Seahouses and Alnmouth. Slightly further up the coast is Lindisfarne (Holy Island). A great location, we used it as a base for exploring.
