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

Go out of the camp site and turn right and after a mile or so you come to Embelton, lovely little village that has a couple of pubs where you can get a nice meal or walk down to the Golf Club where you an also have a good meal. Out of the site and turn left and it's about a mile and a half to Craster or you can exit the camp site via the back and follow a path through the woods that will take you to the beach and Dunstanburgh Castle, if feeling fit you can contine along the path and end up at Craster via the costal walk. A nice pub, coffee shop etc, not forgetting the famous kipper smokehouse. Back on the camp site dogs are welcome as long as they are on their lead. There is a children's playpark on the site and every Friday night a fish & chip van visits the site. WiFi available at a small cost. On the whole a nice little site with some great walks, my wife and I will most certainly be visiting on several occasions for some nice weekend breaks. A*

Throughout our four night stay the staff were extremely friendly & helpful.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Throughout our four night stay the staff were extremely friendly & helpful. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly. The site facilities were explained and then the Warden, Bob, showed us to our pitch and actually assisted us to move our van onto the hard standing. The site is kept to a very high standard, grass mowed, bins emptied daily & the toilet & shower block was immaculate at all times of day or night. As others have stated the site is well located for trips to several locations along the Northumbrian coastline. An excellent dog walk too. All in all, an excellent site which we will definitely be returning to soon.
