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

This review is for Dunstan Hill

There's so much to do in the area that we could easily have stayed much longer - Alnwick Castle was a good day out for the kids; we had a lovely cycle ride between Almouth and Warkworth, including a look around the Castle there; we drove up the coast to Beal and cycled onto Holy Island and finally had a lovely day on the beach after walking up to Dunstonburgh Castle.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Campsite offer money off vouchers for local attractions such as Alnwick castle and gardens, boat trips to Farne Islands, and other castles. Would recommend Alnwick gardens and castle and the tree house is a must. Nice places to eat such as the Italian in Embleton. Everyone really friendly, boat trip to Farne Islands was really interesting. Plenty of things to do with kids of all ages.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

We are newly converted Caravan and Camping club members, year two and still fans. After finding a great site in the south downs, it was time to head north. Dunstan Hill is in a perfect location, on a quiet road yet walking (and a short drive) from the coast. Craster, Dunstanburgh, Seahouses, Howick, Alnwick, Alnmouth, Amble/Warkworth, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne are all a short journey. The staff are both welcoming and very helpful, the facilities are excellent and the general ambience genial. We are are already planning our return.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

First I would like to thank all the staff on this site who did their upmost to help us during a very eventful week. We visited as a group of 13 family and friends with children. We planned our stay around my husbands 50th birthday and some of us were taking part in the Northumberland coastal run too. Our motorhome broke down halfway along our journey, so we arrived on site on a recovery truck. The staff looked after us and did their best to get us sited asap. A member of our group also became very unwell and was admitted to hospital, leaving his wife and 2 children on the site. Nearing date for departure and unsure of his discharge date, the site staff were very accomadating in ensuring his family were comfortable and reassured they could be accomadated. Also the day we left (with a still broken down motorhome) the area manager drove my husband to the train station in alnmouth, when other travel plans went wrong at the last minute. They were just brilliant. This site has excellent facilities, is very clean, and in a great location for visiting the beach (1 mile away) embleton village with pubs and shops (3/4 mile) and the bus stops right outside the campsite which goes all along this lovely coastline.
