The surrounding area

Nearby to Dunstan Hill Club Site 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.

The staff are helpful and efficient, solving any small problems willingly and promptly.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

The staff are helpful and efficient, solving any small problems willingly and promptly. A lovely setting and excellent facilities. A small play area for kids, but, even better, within easy reach,miles of sands for mums and dads to be kept occupied building sand castles, or visiting the real ones that overlook the beaches. Highly recommended.

We were disappointed by the reception at this site.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

We were disappointed by the reception at this site. We arrived initially at midday to see a sign that pitches were not being allocated until 1.00pm. We left and came back at 2.30 pm and were faced with no alternative options than one of two remaining grass pitches in the centre of the first field. No attempt was made by the staff to mediate our unhappiness with this. A 'take it or leave it' approach was adopted which we felt very upset about. We had booked two nights but left after one because it was not a friendly response. We could have been offered an alternative pitch for the second night but nothing was forthcoming. It is a good site but the attitude to us did not conform to the club's philosophy of friendliness
