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.

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.

Lovely site, wardens were so helpful and friendly, even cleared the pitch of leaves and branches before we pitched our tent. (very windy) Partner took ill late of Saturday night wardens helped phone 111 and gave me directions to the hospital, so helpful. The chip van comes on a Friday night and I found the chips very good. Real chips not frozen ones. Lovely area with beautiful walks. If you get into you car you can visit the beautiful beaches at Beadnell and Bamburgh. The town of Alnwick is worth a look. Alnwick gardens are amazing and the Castle is a must see for Harry Potter fans. Seahouses is a great wee seaside town, there are boat trips to the Farne islands to see the birds and the seals. Good chip shops in Seahouses. We had a nice meal in the Bamburgh Castle Inn. Dog friendly so you can take the pooch in. I love this area and can't recommend it highly enough

My only complaint is about the standard of the toilet/shower block.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

My only complaint is about the standard of the toilet/shower block. The interior has painted brick walls or in some places bare plaster. The shower cubicles are quite small with a shower curtain which sticks to your body while the shower is running. It reminds me of campsites I used in the 60s/70s.On the plus side the shower water was hot and had a good flow, unlike that in the family room where very little water was being issued from the shower head. The site itself consists of two very large grassed camping fields with many hard standings around the edge all accessed from a tarmac road. There are two toilet blocks but one block was closed even though there were many people camped on the hard standings near to it, they had a long walk to use the loo.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

The facilities on site have been much improved, with heating in the shower blocks and a new tarmac road. The staff work very hard to keep the site immaculate and the way they look out for people in bad weather and help with general difficulties make this a very safe and secure place for a holiday. Sincere thanks to everyone.
