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.

The location of CCC Dunstan Hill is perfect for people who enjoy light to moderate exercise. There is a network of easy paths around the site leading through pretty countryside to the coast. There is an historic castle, a nature reserve, village pubs and eating places, golf club and beautiful seascape all within a 3 mile radius. The bus to the delightful town of Alnwick stops outside the site entrance. Four days was not enough to take in all the area has to offer. We intend to return.

We found this site to be quiet clean and tidy, with friendly, helpful staff with an, important, sense of humour. It can be a little difficult to find especially in the dark but access is not at all bad. Public transport is good. Would certainly contemplate using these facilities again. **********

This review is for Dunstan Hill

We booked this site for a couple of nights and then extended our stay. The weather was perfect, there was so much to do and the site was an excellent base. In Embleton village there are friendly pubs, the lanes are excellent for cycling (NCR 1 goes by the site) and part of this route goes along the coast to Alnmouth. We visited Lindisfarne, took a boat out to the Farne Islands, went to Bamburgh castle, Craster and Alnwick and walked the coastal path. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
