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.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

only three mens' showers each end which at the height of the season (and virtually full with many tents relying on it) was totally inadequate, particularly at £30 per night. Washing up was also entailed a wait often. Drainers for washing up would be helpful. The best positions on the edges of the site did not have electricity, a missed opportunity.

This was a really great site.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This was a really great site. large enough to have atmosphere yet small enough to be able to keep the kids in sight. Facilities were spotless and the team worked tirelessly both day and night to make sure they stayed clean. The site is perfect for the beach, nearby castles and only a short drive to Alnwick. Would definitely stay again.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

We stayed in our caravan for 6 nights on our first visit to this excellent site with friendly, helpful staff. Peak holiday period but did not feel like we were squeezed in, no ball games around the pitches but a field and playground for the children which is more appropriate. Close to the beaches and coastal path for lovely walks - all in all a fantastic place. The only down side is the Wifi as mentioned in other reviews this should be included in the price. Saying that I would recommend the site and will return.

After 35 mile cycle in the rain the managers/owners offered us the use of their tumble drier! A little gesture went a long long way to making us feel so much happier.
