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.

Stayed for only one night as on way back from a holiday in Scotland,Felt the booking fee was way too high,for a one night visit. was booked in for a grass sight,which was a sand pitch which was littered with used cigarette butts..not too impressed,the other facilities were up to standard,would look else where if I did this journey again.

Layout would benefit from more divides/hedging as felt like camping in the middle of a huge field with strangers. Also resent hiring cool blocks as no facilities to freeze own unless departure day!

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Parts of site have smallest pitches we've ever experienced with this, or any other, club site and pitch boundaries are not all well defined so we found ourselves with extremely close neighbours who had arrived whilst we were out in our campervan one day. The toilet and shower blocks are to a very good standard but seem insufficient for the site. There were regularly queues for the showers (in particular) that had more people in them than there were cubicles. The staff were all very nice and this isn't down to them......daily cleaning was very good. Marked one way traffic system on site is not observed nor enforced with occasional near miss consequences! Staff should take care of this.
