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

A good location for the coastal region from Caistor to Lindisfarne, Holy Island, and for visiting Alnwick, although the roads from the A1 to the campsite are in a pretty terrible condition. The welcome was friendly and helpful, although only one shower block was open. But we had one major problem with our electric hook-up; with a modicum of usage the supply kept tripping out. We had to use our gas for the fire, or we couldn't heat water and the inside too. On a really wet, cold night I was getting really fed up with leaving the caravan to reset the electric; I reported the problem but was told that it was caused by having a water heater and space heater on at the same time. Ridiculous, other campsites do not have this problem. It would have been nice if they could have acknowledged there was a fault.
