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.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

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.

Very pleasant walk (20Mins) to the beach.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Very pleasant walk (20Mins) to the beach. Surrounding countryside stunning and interesting castles etc. Enough nearby towns to make food shopping easy and local attractions to keep everyone entertained. We drove to Beamish about 60 miles but well worth the effort. Allow a whole day.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

We stayed at the site during the Easter holidays and the toilet and shower blocks etc had recently been renovated. The facilities were therefore spotless and remained so during our stay. The welcome was great and we were given a quick explanation of the site and the local area. The site itself is basically two large, level fields with plenty of space and most pitches have access to hook ups and water/waste points are nearby. There is also a play area for the kids with swings and slide etc. The only downside was that some of the facilities were still being worked on while we were there so not everything was available for us to use. I would be more than happy to go back to Dunstan Hill and we intend to return very soon. The area is fantastic as you are close to Dunstanburgh Castle, Bamburgh, Alnwick, Seahouses and the fantastic beach is only a 20 minute walk away. Can't wait to go back (just wish we could guarantee the same weather!!)

This review is for Dunstan Hill

so many local attractions close by to suit all ages and budgets. The children love Alnwick castle and crag side. Nice quiet level site, with modern clean amenities, and a fab little play area for the children. Was extremely impressed with the staff during a storm, they came out to check on the sites occupants and helped us secure our tent which was struggling! I can't thank them enough. Will definitely come here again and again.
