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.

A lovely, quiet site, with friendly, helpful staff, good facilities and even a fish and chip van on a Saturday night. Perfectly situated for exploring Northumberland in all directions, or just enjoying the local beaches and the atmospheric Dunstanburgh Castle.

Arrived late afternoon as it was starting to rain. Given a choice of pitches.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Arrived late afternoon as it was starting to rain. Given a choice of pitches. Directed to pitch and due to the weather and the fact that the pitch was more soil that grass we asked if we could pitch at the edge of the grass on the pitch and were told it would be ok. There were no obvious pitch boundary markings. Next morning put up our windbreak and then went walking. We had been back no more than a couple of minutes when two of the staff leant over the windbreak, the male member of staff said either take this down or move your motorhome over more into the centre of the pitch. I tried to explain that the staff member who took us to the pitch said it was ok but he would not listen and then pointed out newly painted pitch markings. I said they were not there when we came the day before but was just told yes they were. I moved our motorhome over, so now we were in the markings and on soil/mud. I asked the staff member who we dealt with on arrival about the pitch markings and he told me they had been done while we were out that day. After I moved I went to the reception and asked to see the manager. I explained the above and said the markings had been done after we were pitched and the reply was that they had not. The female member of staff who leant over the windbreak denied her colleague had been abrupt. I just felt like none of them wanted to deal with my greivance. This was not the only instance of the staffs bad attitude. We keep an owl who we take to sites with us. We have never had any issues with this before. We were flying him on a large patch of open ground on the second evening and a different member of staff walked up and just told us to stop as we were flying him through a pitch and people were wanting to use the toilet block which was 20 yards away. There was no excuse me or can we have a word in either instance. Perhaps the club could speak to the staff and suggest some customer relations training.

We had a great stay here. The facilities are very good, clean, bright and modern. It is excellently placed for lots of different dog walks. There is a good play area for children. We would definitely recommend this site and would come back again.
