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.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This site is fairly well sheltered by mature woodland but still quite windy (it is on the Northumberland coast!). Fairly level pitches and well spaced out. The site staff are really good at dealing with people who haven't pitched quite where they should have so don't be shy about pointing this out if you need to. The site is ideal if you're with other people in different units, can still pitch near to each other. Showers are good and hot, there is a shower room for the use of families with young children but it doesn't have a bath just shower, we didn't bother as the main showers have a little seat in each cubicle so toddler just sat on there while I showered. Lovely 30minute walk to the beach through a mix of woodland/farmland but wear sturdy shoes/boots as the tree roots are very exposed in the woodland. Short drive to same beach which is dog friendly and beautiful. Can highly recommend a boat trip to the Farne Islands from Seahouses, excellent value for money. If you want to eat out, The Craster Arms in Beadnell is amazing!

Close to the sea - we didn't walk it due to the time we had but only a few minutes drive to park even closer to a beautiful beach - lovely for a walk on an evening. Village of Embleton has a great little Sambucas (Italian) in the pub doing 3 courses for �4.95 before 5pm so we didn't even need to cook in our tent. Great park for children there too. This site is great for visiting Holy Island, Seahouses, the Farne Islands, Bamburgh, Alnwick and so many more places. We'll definitely be back!!

This was our third visit in the last four years to Dunstan Hill.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

This was our third visit in the last four years to Dunstan Hill. The whole family love it there; the site is so peaceful and the staff could not have been more helpful. The new toilet blocks are excellent and spotless and the site is such an excellent base to explore the coast; whether it is the beaches, castles or Lindisfarne. Would love to return again.
