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.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

What a fantastic restful break on this beautiful site! Stayed 3 nights & what a chill out with local beach, castles & woodland. Not only did I relax but my 2 little dogs were horizontal after being on the dog friendly beach for hrs. Can recommend this site for everyone whether you want relax, beach walking, surfing, golf & beautiful castles. The staff are fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful facilities & well stocked shop for those 'little bits'. The beautiful sunsets/sunrise are well worth going for & all pitches are mostly level & easy walking. Can't wait to return again just wish it was open all year😊 100% perfection guaranteed x

The only fault with this site is the on site shop as it is not stocked with enough essentials.
