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

Please note there is no space for ball games during busy periods. A fish and chip van visits twice a week.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

Craster, home of the Craster kippers, is an hour's walk from the site, as is The Ship Inn in Newton, which serves beer from its own micro brewery.

We had a great week at the Dunstanhill site.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

We had a great week at the Dunstanhill site. The friendliness and humour of the site team made for a great atmosphere. This was compounded by great scenery and a short walk to the magnificent beach. One of the highlights for us was a trip to the Farne Islands from Seahouses particularly as it was the seabird breeding season (puffins galore!). Locally the freshly smoked kippers at Craster were wonderful and the Ship Inn at Lownewton with its crab sandwiches and microbrewery were also worth a visit and both were about an hour's walk away, along the beach but in opposite directions. The local village of Embelton; 15-20 minutes walk away had two good restaurants. We liked the Italian themed "Sambuca" the best. In addition the area also had some fascinating castles, gardens and the National Trust House at Cragside with its fascinating links to hydro-electric power.

Would highly recommend this site for either shoet or long stay. The beach and scenery, awesome! For those with a liking for history and ideal location to visit Hadrians wall and about an hours drive to Edingburgh. Will be staying at the site again in future visit to the UK.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

For the four nights we were on site, only one of the two toilet blocks were open due to snagging with the refurbishment which it appears has been going on for some time. The wardens on site were so helpful, but clearly could do nothing to speed the contractors who were working on site. This situation resulted in only three showers working in the male block, and another three in the female block. Expect congestion at busy times until the matter is sorted - not helped by people 'reserving' showers with their towels while using other facilities in the block! It is a great site - and will be well worth a visit when it's finished.
