    Anyone touring the north east coast, i can recommend The Railway Inn at Acklington.
    Situated just 4 miles off the A1 approx 12 miles north of Morpeth.

    16 hard standings and 6 grass....all around 10mtrs x 10mtrs, big enough for van, awning and toad/trailer....set out in two seperate areas all within a minute of the pub
    16amp electric posts with bulkhead lighting.....some not working.
    RV's accepted up to around 11mtrs to 12mtrs including overhang onto grass.
    No charge for awnings or dogs but no dog walking allowed on site.
    Dogs walkers must use the roadside verges and footpaths.

    Onsite pub is dog friendly (bar only) and very 'homely' with a pretty good menu which appears to be all home made by the owners, Helen & Rachel.

    Toilet block and showers are clean and tidy.
    4 x male toilets and 2 x showers
    6 x female toilets and 3 x showers.
    All housed in a large wooden building with light and heating.

    Fresh water via a decent length hose reel (hoselock i believe)
    Grey waste at ground level via small drain cover.
    Easy use flushing Elsan point, about a foot off the ground, round the back of the block with seperate rinse hose....nothing else there so no cross contamination.

    There is a railway line less than 100ft away but not really noisey, we were closest to it but couldnt really hear anything in the van.
    Railway station is 3 minutes away....no idea of route but probably south to Newcastle and north to Berwick....and anywhere in between.

    Not the cheapest at £20pn....two people and unit, including electric but well worth it in my mind. 20151019_103852.jpg 20151019_103938.jpg 20151019_103836.jpg
