The surrounding area

Nearby to Dunstan Hill Club Site 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.

First class site.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

First class site. Friendly helpful wardens and spotlessly clean facilities block, they even had a little outside shower for cleaning dogs/muddy boots etc, this was really useful. The site does take in tents, caravans and motorhomes so it is was very busy but didn't feel overcrowded. A brisk 20 min walk takes you to Embleton beach which is truly breath-taking, one of the nicest, cleanest beaches I have seen in a long time and that's including abroad with the added bonus of being dog friendly! Stroll along the beach one way and you come to Craster where there is a restaurant, the Jolly Fisherman pub, café and the Kipper smokehouse. A short walk in the other direction you come to Low Newton where the fantastic Ship Inn is situated. We had wonderful meals in both these pubs. In the village of Embleton, which is within walking distance, there are 3 further pubs so you really cant go wrong for eating and drinking establishments. There is also a handy bus stop outside the campsite if you don't fancy walking. We also visited Bamburgh and Alnwick whilst there, both beautiful and worth going to. This site was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed we even had a view of Dunstanburgh Castle ruins from our motorhome - perfect.

Fabulous appt to explore Northumberland from.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Fabulous appt to explore Northumberland from. The beach just 15 mins from site is stunning and we boogie boarded in the surf with kids with the backdrop of Dunstanburgh Castle ruins looming over us! Also loved Lower Newton by the Sea and the wee pub in the village square was very kid and dog friendly and had amazing crab sandwiches. Alnwick and it's castle and gardens only a short drive away also. Northumberland has to be one of our top places to visit in England. The staff were friendly. The toilets/showers immaculate. The site is very well cared for. Great road around site for kids on scooters/bikes. The playpark small but with a gang of children there was hours ofnfyn spent there. A nice large grass area for ball games too which was great. We were there with our kids 5 and 8 year olds. Also with our dog and the site was dog friendly with lots of dogs about. We are already planning our next visit to this site!
