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.

This review is for Dunstan Hill

Our stay on the site was not pleasant, we booked this site in January &when we arrived we only had the choice of 2 pitches. Unfortunately we chose pitch No "137" which was at the top of the lower field nearest the road, not long after arriving we had cars driving between our pitch & the next pitch this is not a marked access way into the field, To clear things up I went to the reception & asked where was the correct place to gain access to the lower field the reply was mixed & different which ever warden I spoke to, one of the wardens admitted that it was not well set out, what was most upsetting was one person driving through was abusive to me & my wife. Whilst we stayed on this site we noticed other people leaving with caravans between other peoples pitches, my thought is that the access is not clearly known causing confusion & making it a free for all NOT GOOD. Even on our last day one of the wardens rode his bike between our pitch & the next with a car following & when I shouted at him he ignored me, I then went to see the site manager who made out this warden was not clear of the procedures I don't think any one is singing from the same hymn sheet. This experience spoilt our holiday & I would not choose this site again.
