Went to Seacote for the final days of our Winter tour as we left Scotland. Had a front pitch overlooking the beach with hook and water which was perfect. Beach is amazing and the tide is fast and bracing with the windy weather providing amazing surf!

Took both my dogs who ran absolutely riot around the beach and loved it. My five year old also loved the beach. The Beach Shop and cafe are awful, take all with you that you can. The Post Office in St Bees is ok [has wine, so hey what else is needed?] and is 1/2 a mile away. Did not eat at any of the pubs and never used the toilets as we were self sufficient.

If you want breathtaking views, amazing walks and a wonderful beach then this is the place for you.

Staff were also very friendly.

I agree with the previous writer, a lot of 'dog waste', however it seemed as though the 'visitors' picked up, it was the locals that walked on and could not be bothered. There is a 'Dog Toilet' in the car park, brilliant idea, a small fenced area, sanded, so that dogs can 'pop' in, poop scoop provided too.So no excuse.
St Bees is a lovely place, plenty of walks within the area, superb views, beach and children's play area. The site itself seems to be more biased to statics, we stopped on the sea view hardstandings.Very close to each other, gravel standings rather muddy in places. Although each pitch has water tap and drain. Excellent view of the lifeboat station we spent many hours watching the comings and goings of the boat, and the very brave crew.
There is a gate onto the front from this area. Toilets were not the cleanest, and would certainly not cope, toilets had wash basin and toilet, 2 showers for ladies, make sure you keep clothes out of reach of spray.
Apart from that staff were very helpful and friendly, the views from the sea view pitches are second to none, and we did have a very relaxing break there. One day we may return!

We are new to camping with our motorhome and this was the 2nd site we visited.We thought it was a bit expensive but the view was second to none.The staff were very helpful,about 1min walk from bus stop,but last bus from town was 1.50 pm or you could catch the train.The toilets and showers were very clean,It could do with clean chippings on hard standing area or grass blocks,it would have been rather muddy if you had children with you.Nice and quiet at the waters edge

We've been here 3 times in the last 3 months.

It could be a wonderful site, almost on the beach, lots of places to visit and tremendous views, but no drainage!

The place where our awning should have been on our last visit, was a sea of mud. OK, we expected bad weather, but had field drainage been adequate it would have coped. I suspect there's a bigger problem as the drains beside the water standpipes were slow running away too.

Toilets and showers were perfectly adequate, but their location in the middle of the static caravans?

Every pitch had it's own hookup and standpipe, a definite plus, but bear in mind the slow drainage under the stand pipes.

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.
