About The site

If you're looking for a Family friendly simple off-grid campsite, in the heart of Northumberland, to enjoy a well-earned break with a clear view of the night sky, then we've got a pitch for you.  Fresh air, the gentle sound of bird song, idyllic countryside views, fields dotted by sheep, well spaced pitches with easy access along a well maintained private farm track.  Toasting marshmallows over one of our fire pits and genuinely being able to switch off by going to sleep watching the stars.  If you are up early enough you may also catch sight of some deer before a pleasant walk in the countryside or a days sightseeing visiting The Whitehouse farm centre, N1 Crazy Golf, Kirkley Hall Zoo, Hadrians wall or one of the many Castles and beaches of the Northumbrian Coast all within a short drive.  Our farm is 3 miles from the historic market town of Morpeth in the beautiful Northumbrian Countryside. The camping field is an old pasture meadow surrounded by mature trees in a quiet location away from the main farmyard.  There are many wild animals in the area including deer, badgers, foxes and birds.  The fields around our campsite are grazed by our pedigree rare breed coloured ryeland sheep.

Club Membership

PLEASE NOTE: We are a Camping and Caravan Club "Members Only" Certificated Site (CS) and all guests must hold a current membership to stay. These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operate under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 15 caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents or tents. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family-friendly sites, and are often found in locations like ours where larger commercial sites are prohibited.  Being a member of the Camping and Caravan Club gives you access to around 1400 CS sites like ours around the uk. Membership costs from as little as £42 for a year for more details visit the Caravan & Camping Club Website.  Pitch fees at small certified sites like ourselves are nearly half the cost of commercial sites which means that just one 3 to 4 night stay would cover the cost of your membership in savings straight away.

Eco Friendly

Please note that due to location we operate as an Eco off grid campsite so no electric pitches.    Although we do not have wifi on site we are in a good area for mobile phone and tv reception so picking up a signal shouldn't be a problem.  Worried about going off grid?  Follow this link for our top tips to camping off grid ...


Pet Friendly


We are happy for you to bring well behaved pets but please do not leave them on their own or allow them to bark all the time and it is very important that you keep them on a lead at all times as we are a working farm with sheep and lambs.


Quiet and Family friendly

"Please Note - this is a quiet family friendly site, groups, loud music or rowdy behaviour are not tolerated at any time and you will be asked to leave.  We operate a strictly no noise rule between the hours of 10.00pm and 8.00am".

Refuse and Recycling

We provide recycling facilities so that guests can properly recycle their waste.  We appreciate your help too by reducing the amount of waste you produce and bring to our properties to help us aspire to becoming zero waste.   The only thing we are unable to recycle is glass as Northumberland County council do not provide a glass collection.  Therefore we ask that if you do bring glass please take it away with you to the nearest glass recycling point located at the car park at 'The Sun Inn' on the way into Morpeth.
