Enjoy this quiet site in an area known for its beaches, birds and castles.

Stunning views, sweeping sandy beaches, abundant wildlife and a dramatic coastline steeped in history are all accessible from our Dunstan Hill Club campsite. Situated just a mile from the North Northumberland Heritage Coast, this rural campsite is a restful base from which to explore the popular ‘castle coast’.

The spacious, mainly level campsite is bordered by trees and offers a mix of hardstand and grass pitches. Facilities are clean and tidy and campers can expect toilets and showers, parent and baby room, a laundry and separate washing up area and a children’s play area.

A bonus is the pleasant woodland walk to the nearby beach and village of Craster – home of the kipper. Visit Dunstanburgh Castle north of here, the backdrop to the glorious, safe sandy expanse of Embleton Bay.

The imposing Bamburgh Castle overlooks the Farne Islands – the summer ‘home’ of more than 100,000 pairs of breeding seabirds and later in the year the islands become the pupping grounds to a colony of grey seals.

South of our Dunstan Hill campsite is Alnwick Castle, probably best known for its role as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. Horticulture fans will love the gardens home to a giant holly serpent and some of the world’s most poisonous plants.

Beadnell Bay, a paradise for water sport lovers and Seahouses, a colourful fishing port are both worth visiting.

Worth Noting

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Dog walking area which the site don't own was very muddy under foot & without wellies would be bad news, this reflex on the club & I think the club should have a discussion with whoever owns this area, l'm sure it could be tidied upst little cost, the club does have a gate access into this walk, however very good & clean site, staff brill.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

What a wonderful site this is, such a warm friendly welcome from all the staff, who work extremely hard to keep everything in perfect condition. Nothing is too much trouble and the help and information is second to none. The site is so convenient for all the local attractions and especially the coastline. The bus service is very useful particularly for motorhomes, We will certainly return. Thank you for a fabulous stay.

Was totally blown away by the countryside around this campsite.....

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Was totally blown away by the countryside around this campsite..... fantastic walks, the most beautiful (and empty) sandy beach and a castle ruin all within easy access of the site - wish I could have stayed longer as there just seemed so much to explore and see close by. Wardens were friendly and very helpful - always a cheerful wave whenever they passed by! Facilities not the best compared to some other club sites but adequate and clean. Hardstanding was gravel which was much appreciated as it rained heavily so didn't traipse mud and grass clippings inside! Will definitely visit again and stay longer.

First time we have stayed on a caravan & camping club site.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

First time we have stayed on a caravan & camping club site. A warm welcome from the wardens, we were shown to our pitch & given information about the site & surrounding area. the site itself was immaculate & although busy we didn't feel cramped. Toilet facilities spotless at all times. So much to see & do in the area, great for all sorts of people, something for everyone. Will definitely be back soon hopefully.
