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

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.

This is a cracking site although we stayed midweek so wasn't full.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This is a cracking site although we stayed midweek so wasn't full. We noticed a difference on our last night (Friday) with it a lot busier and rowdy in the evenings with adults drinking. Both toilet blocks were spotless and all the friendly wardens seemed to do that little bit extra than any other CCC site we've stayed on. The public footpath which runs at side of the site is also used for the dog walk. There is plenty of walking from the site to Dunstanburgh castle, Newton-on-sea, Craster and Embleton (with several lovely pubs). The only criticism I have is the poor fit of the door in the centre cubicle in the gents' top toilet block which doesn't shut properly, and which I found out to my embarrassment!

This is a really lovely campsite in an amazing area.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This is a really lovely campsite in an amazing area. It is in walking distance of the beach and has lovely views. The campsite facilities have recently been upgraded and were very nice and were kept clean by the wardens. My only complaint would be noise. The old rules of quiet time between 11pm and 7am are no longer observed or enforced. It was a very noisy site from very early in the morning (children) until very late at night (adults drinking). There are lovely beaches and castles to visit. Alnwick is nice and now has the Gardens next to the castle. I did think sites were one way, but this one isn't anymore, which can be problematic when caravans are arriving.
