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.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This is a lovely well kept site, I received a very warm friendly welcome on arrival, the wardens were eager to share lots of useful information on the site and surrounding area, the toilet/ showers were immaculately clean, plenty of great walks from the site, and along the coast route, a short 15 min walk to nearby Embleton village, with a couple of decent pubs, post office / shop. All in all , a lovely site , and one I would definitely return to.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This is our second stay on this site - and once again we were not disappointed. We stayed here at about the same time last year. This is a fantastic site with easy walking access to the beautiful Northumbrian coast. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful and couldn't do enough to help whenever we called into the office. Despite two youth groups being there on Saturday night it was calm and peaceful. Our only intake was not to ask for more detailed information about the local buses as we do like to use local transport where possible and I think we misread the timetables!! We love the walk to Dunstanburgh Castle, and the Farne Islands are a must do visit. Given the opportunity we will be back possibly later in the year to see the area in a different season. This should be voted one of the top sites in the country.

Just back from a great 3 night stay at Dunstable Hill.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Just back from a great 3 night stay at Dunstable Hill. Warm and friendly welcome and all staff were friendly and helpful throughout out our stay. We were camping and had a good pitch on the larger section of the site which was very well kept. The site was quiet and relaxing with a lot of the caravaners keeping themselves to themselves but the weather wasn't that great for sitting outside. The 2 toilet and shower blocks were spotlessly clean and warm with good size showers and good water flow. Some of the cubicles were shut off but I assume that was because the site wasn't full and I never had to queue. The blocks both have large covered washing up facilities. The site has a useful information room with loads of leaflets and there is a small shop, a fish and chip van visits on Fridays. The local Northumberland coast is stunning and the nearest village Embleton has a couple of pubs that serve food, the Grey Inn serves good food for a reasonable price. There is little to no mobile signal at the site and we couldn't connect onto the page/link to purchase wifi, but as we were away to relax it was a very minor irritation. We will definitely be back.
