We were new to camping and I was really excited. I decided on the Lake District and specifically Seacote because of the facilities it claimed to have, however when we arrived we were disappointed to discover the facilities were actually not on site the park was a fair way from the camping field actually outside of Seacote Holiday Park, and the pub/restaurant was way over the otherside of the carpark outside Seacote.

The field was on a slope which if it was well drained would be ok, we were sinking through the mud and it was seeping through our tent by the end of the week. The field itself is accessed by a rickety old bridge which has all sorts of rubbish thrown underneath it.

I would never return and think it is a camp catered for mainly for statics and tourers.

The site was very busy for the earlier part of Spring Bank week, and the sanitary facilities were just not adequate. They were not clean enough, there are insufficient cubicles, and they are too far from the field of the people (tenters) who need them. There are no on site shopping facilities.

The site seems expensive, in view of the above, at 21 per night for a pitch with hook up and water.

A shame because the area is interesting and attractive, with good walking and other visitor attractions within 1/2 hour. There are some lovely down-loadable walks available from the St. Bees website. The locals were friendly and helpful.

A few on-the-spot litter fines might be in order as the beach area was a disgrace at the end of the day. There's no shortage of litter bins.

The pubs in St Bees are fine, with the beer garden at The Queen's especially pleasant with good food. The Seacote Hotel by the beach needs a fettle.

I would advise you to take all your requirements because the supermarkets are a good drive away in Whitehaven or Egremont. The harbour area in Whitehaven has benefited from millennium money and is a real attraction.

We stayed here for 2 nights 2nd-4th may bank holiday weekend.The tent field is on a slope but not a problem. The site is right next to the beach which has rock pools to the right which can keep kids(and my girlfriend) busy for hours.

The site has good showers with plenty of hot water but the toilets in the gents were disgusting it seems as if people were using the to empty there chemical toilets in! I think this is because of the signs were not very prominent they were like this from Saturday till we left on Monday we told reception they apologized for the state we had found them and said they are cleaned in the morning and evening but it didn't look like it. My girlfriend said The ladies toilets were better and were very warm as the radiators were on in there

There are some leaflets in reception get the one for Rokers chippy its about 4miles away towards Whitehaven well worth the trip they do fish and chips kebabs burgers lots of choice there's also an Indian & chinese takeaway and and off license for essentials or if you carry on the main road to Whitehaven you'll find a netto aldi and Iceland

The only thing stopping us going back is the toilets but if you've got a tourer and porta loo you wont need them nearly forgot the toilets are some distance from the tents which if you need to go in the middle of the night could be a problem or just take a bucket!

We decided to have our Easter Break here at Seacotes St Bees. We arrived on the Thursday. Weather was awful. We had pitch number 4. Front view. Amazing position. Hardstanding with electric and water hook up.

Good Friday weather mixed, but Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday weather was amazing.

We sat outside our caravan. Barbie going, just chilling, watching peaople on the beach, jet skiers, and walkers taking advantage of the coastal walk that starts from the beach. Lovely.

The showers were not the best. If this had been my first visit as a camper. It would have put me off for life. !

I can put up with most things as long as they are clean. !

There is a hotel in walking distance from the campsite and they serve pub meals. We ate there thursday evening. Not bad. They have a lounge with a singer on three times a week and a games room with two pool tables and satellite tv.

It also has a beer garden that could do with some new tables and chairs for sitting out on.

In St Bees there are three pubs. About a 15 min walk down from the campsite. Maybe 20-25 back. A lovely walk. But recovering from a broken ankle meant we had to take the car. A small car park at the bottom of the main street and then it was a two minute walk to the pubs.

We ate at one of them on Good Friday. The Queens Head. Excellent. Loved it. And very reasonable.

As I said Saturday, Sunday and Monday we barbequed. And loved every minute of it.

We loved the position of this site and it was very busy with locals coming for the day with their families and dogs. There is a playground for the children and when the tide goes out it is great for crabbing in the rock pools.

We would return.

This was my second stay here and both times I opted to book into one of the sites own static caravans.

The site is brilliantly located for the beach, as it's right next door. It's a really quiet site and there are pitches for tents/caravans/motorhomes with facilities which I didn't use.

There are some great walks and it's really dog-friendly place which is why I picked it and a return visitor. The walks range in ability and time and you can download some walk routes from the St Bees village website and some take you on the start of the coast to coast walk.

When the sea is out the beach is really wide and is very popular with dog-walkers, horses and anyone who fancies exploring. The beach is a misture of sand, pebbles and some rock-pools where kids can explore.

The village is about 7 minutes walk away with a choice of pubs and shops as well as a regular train. You can catch the bus into Whitehaven from the carpark near the site and they run regularly and I would recommended venturing out on public transport as it takes you through scenery you may not see in the car.

The statics are very clean with everything you need, they even include bedding if you need it.

I liked it so much that I'm thinking about a third visit.

Stayed for 2 nights on the way home from Scotland - mixed review really. Fantastic location. Pitched practically on the beach as we had a small unit with no awning etc. Views are stunning. 20/night with hook up.

Toilet block is average and in the middle of the static site. Pitches were large with plenty of space in between.

No real facilities on site - The pub; shop etc are not on the site but a couple of minutes walk away. Hotel where the bar is was very tired looking and very quiet. Bar food was OK. Entertainment on Thursday night was alright - a local singer - but I think that the majority of customers were on a coach trip to the hotel and not there through choice!

Some very pretty areas around and about but if the weather was good I don't think you would be able to move any children off the fantastic beach!

Whitehaven is a bit run down but has all you need with regard to shops; fuel etc.
