Overpriced and unpleasent.

My partner and I were hesitant about booking here because of the price but wanted a site with a pool. We arrived at 5. 30pm and the pool closed at 5. 45pm, would have been nice to know when booking. The pitch was in poor condition, the conctrete was broken and surounded in mud. We decided to pay extra to extended our pitch from 10am to 4pm for 5 and use the pool. All the other activies cost extra, nothing under five pounds. While on our way for some breakfast we saw the queue to get the bands for the pool, it was out the door. We gave up on Haggerston at this point and took the car to Seahouses. Our pitch cost 41, it was more like 10 worth. Will never visit another Haven or similar site.

It's a lovely site set to a woody feel. Plenty to do for all ages. The animal man is a must to see.

There is a so called dog walk, but it's not really a dog walk, just a stretch of tarmac path and a patch of rough along the way.

The toilets were cleaned at regular intervals, but at the wrong times - ie at peak morning times and probably when they need doing most.

The touring park in some places was muddy and some pitches were small. A tip: choose an all service pitch and pay extra as you have a bigger pitch for your car as well.

We booked to stay here for 8 night but only stayed 7 nights due to our caravan getting damaged. The pitches are cramped and you need to use rock pegs for your awning and then very little room for your car. The shower blocks are the worse I've every seen and need to be re built. I could not believe two shower blocks on a site this big and one shower in the males block was broken throughout the whole stay. The shop on site was very expensive and so we used the shops and supermarkets in berwick which is about 10 minutes drive but you will save a fortune and don't forget to buy your drinks where you are there. We were very disappointed with the service we received about the damage to our caravan and are still waiting for Haven to get in touch with us, don't hold out much hope. We visited the holy island which we would highly recommend.

Just returned from a short 4 night stay at Haggerston Castle with our touring caravan, a relaxing stay and good value for money.

Met on arrival by very friendly warden, (same lady as last year) very chatty and gave us thorough information and welcome pack.

There have been some attempts at improvement since our stay there last year with much of the tree line being trimmed back and fencing separating the lines of pitches. I'm not convinced that the fencing is an improvement as it prevents an 'as the crow flies' access to the water taps and waste facilities and from where we were pitched therefore quite a distance to them.

The pitched are VERY close together making the park feel overcrowded (even in early season. They have what they call the 'six foot rule' this means that there is a six foot gap between the caravans but this is your parking space so your car is parked right beside your awning if you have one. It was so cramped we decided not to bother with our awning as even though we have had no significant rain to speak of the grass was extremely boggy and we ended up with mud everywhere. The pitches are not deep enough for you to park on the roadside and this resulted in people parking all over the place to try and avoid the grass, especially as in the rules and regulations it states that if you cause excess damage to a grassed area you will be charged 10 per square meter for repair of the area!

I'm not sure what Havens policy is regarding pitches for the travelling community but as in previous reviews certainly there were at least three travellers caravans sited when we were there with large permanent propane gas bottles on the pitches and commercial vehicles without number plates. It has to be said they were a friendly bunch and certainly didn't cause any offence but another van arrived while we were there and one wonders how many will eventually be allowed to use the 'touring' site and facilities.

The facilities have seen nothing in the way of improvement in the years we have been visiting, they are basic and could do with some investment, only one mirror in the ladies and the toilet/shower block seems to be a playing and gathering point for the traveller children ????

At times it had to be said that the toilets were less than clean and had we paid the full in season rate I would have been less than satisfied to see the cleaners only making one very brief visit each day.

All of that said it was a cheap out of season getaway and that is the only time I will visit I certainly wouldn't pay the extortionate rates in the high season where they are charging anywhere up to 62 per night in August!

Had a look at the on site entertainment facilities which have changed very little, some new additions which will appeal to families I imagine - adventure playground with scary looking zip wires and rickety bridges! and segways looked good fun to but at 15. 00 for 45 minutes again I felt rather expensive and would certainly be a drain on a cash strapped family.

The Spar was well stocked with all the essentials and more and the fast food outlets plentiful but again the prices hyper inflated.

Well run touring park and entertainment complex

Large shop on site but Berwick upon tweed has larger stores if you want more only a few miles north away off the A1

Toilets were fair for the size of site no problems as we seen

Complex had the dreaded arm bandits give me your money and win

Small children playground in middle of camp site ice cream van pops in around site if you want a cone

The price was very good under 20 a night with promotions always on the go stay another night a tenner if we were not already pre booked I would have stayed

In all we enjoyed our stay on a friendly site
