Seacoates is mainly a static site with 2 separate areas for tourers, one hard standing facing the beach and another well drained grassy area at the back. All have electric hook-up and water. There is also an area over the bridge for tents.

The toilet block is in the middle of the site, each having 3 toilets and 2 showers for men and women. The block is quite dated, but was kept clean, and the showers were free and piping hot.

There is a hotel just outside the site that sells reasonably priced food, and also a shop that sells the basics, with a great little cafe attached.

A bus leaves for Whitehaven and the surrounding area from the beach carpark, and a 5 min walk away takes you to the train station. The village is 2 mins away up the hill, where there is a shop, a few pubs and a few people selling fresh homegrown veg, etc. We bought a dozen duck eggs from a house near the station and they were delicious!

We stayed at St Bees May Day weekend for 4 days and had a wonderful time. It's the 4th time we have stayed here and love it. Everyone is so friendly, the beach is great for all the family, with fine sand and rock pools, and dogs are allowed on the beach all year round.

Visited Seacote during Easter holidays 2011, on arrival we were very pleased as we had a seafront pitch in the lifeboat section which we had booked in December.

Each pitch in that section has hookup and water and the weather was really good so the views were great, it was very busy on the beach area with groups of young teens for some reason, not sure where they all came from as there is nothing for miles around!

I took our 6 year old to the toilets only to find them very dirty, full of muddy water grass and toilet paper, they were not cleaned until day 3 of our holiday which was very disappointing as they really were a disgrace and had run out of toilet paper as well.

The other thing was the distance that the toilet and shower block was from the pitches, too far to walk in the night especially trying to enter the code in the dark, it made taking daughter to the toilet( very regularly ) a pain.

We braved a shower which we didn't look forward to due the dirtiness of the place but there was plenty of hot water and no tokens or money needed. We ordered a takeaway from Ropers after getting a leaflet and menu from reception and was told it would be here in half an hour only for it to arrive 1 and a half hours later, but the food was good and reasonably priced.

I think the site is aimed more at statics but if they cleaned toilets more and had toilets nearer to the pitches then this would be a brilliant place. We left a day before we were due to only because the weather had turned bad. Despite the toilets we would return as the location is great especially if the weather is good.

Stayed here for a day and a night before we started the Coast to Coast walk. This campsite is not cheap however the standard of the site is very high. It's in a great location right on the beach.

The campsite is very well maintained and the toilet/shower block were spacious, warm and clean. Nice flat ground for pitching the tent. St Bees is a lovely coastal village with a nice sea-front cafe close to the campsite.

The campsite itself is only 5 min walk from the train station. Would definitely recommend this campsite - it is worth the money.

This was our first outing in our new tent and I can safely say that we now have the camping bug. This site is excellent and has all the facilities you need. St Bees has an excellent beach only a stones throw away and, yes this is not a Spanish Stone, which has been known to travel many miles!

The site itself has plenty of space for camping and you never felt cramped even when it got busy.

Toilets and showers are clean and tidy with plenty of hot water.

Play park for kids is perfect, however with all the things to do in the area, we hardly used it.

All in all this site is A1 and in a great location to explore the lakes, without being in the tourist central sections around Windermere etc.

I found the whole experience wonderful. The Pitch was situated next to some beautiful views of Fields and hills and you could also see the Sea.

There was Fresh drinking water available and the Toilets are only a short walk away.

The Beach is a Stones throw away and is a great attraction, surrounded by Hills and the Countryside it makes for a Surreal experience.

The Local Shop has plenty to offer and has a Cafe situated within. Make sure you pack what you need as all other amenities are a fair distance away.

On the whole this was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and I will certainly return.

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.
