My family and I had a week. It was fantastic.

Location is perfect for all highlight attractions in the area.

No shop, thank goodness, but milk, eggs and juice available at reception. A freezer to top up Your freezer packs.

10p pieces required for the shower. 6 minutes seem like nothing, but it's. Enough. Just :-) Showers, toilets, wash areas always clean, as is the whole site.

A short walk into Craster, Embleton and a beach just up the road from Embleton.

We will have to return as there are so many things to see and do in the are.

Just great. Thanks.

This is a lovely site in Dunstan just above Craster. AS it is a caravan club site there is always plenty of space between pitches.

We were shown to our plot by the owner and left to put the tent up. We have electric hook up for ours.

The site is a mix of statics, caravans & motor homes, then tents.

Grass fields for tents and water on tap. The toilet block consisted of a ladies side and a gents side. The gents has a sink wash room with 3 sinks, then 3 showers 10p a go, 3 toilets. I'd imagine the ladies would be the same. In addition to this two wash pot areas with two sinks in each and plenty of hot water.

The site was full of families and from various nations, French, Dutch, German, Czech, and English not something I normal see in this country.

Great place to visit beaches of Bamburgh and others.

Dunstan has a pub, but we never went in it. Craster is only 1 miles away and has a great pub 'The Jolly fisherman' see trip advisor. The is another restaurant.

If you like beer pubs try 'The Ship' at the small beach of Low Newton by the Sea.

A convenient location for the Northumbria coast. A large site but hedges separate sections so that it doesn't appear too large. Toilet facilities were clean and adequate for the number staying.

Local transport from Dunster village is just a few minutes walk away as is a good pub serving food. Craster is a little further, about a mile.

Only downside may be that there are no shops within walking distance, although the site does offer milk, fruit juice and yogurts.

Excellent, clean, tidy, very friendly welcome, easy and good access to get into campsite.

Grass cut lovely, very friendly.

No children running about noisily

Well kept facilities

We have just returned from a five day visit to Proctor 's Stead Campsite, and I agree with many who say it is a lovely site with it's handy location to Craster, but where I don't agree is the the cleanliness of the the toilets, washrooms and showers.

Maybe my idea of cleanliness differs from others but as far as I could see the cleaning of the toilets and washbasins was basic, just to wipe the sinks and the toilet seats over isn't enough!

I had been into one toilet that remained soiled for four days, worktops in the washroom weren't wiped as hair etc was left there, there are no waste bins in the showers and washrooms so people still leave empty bottles and horrible stuff around, even the hand dryer was covered in dirty marks, off children I presume and the soap dispenser top full of dust/dirt. The surrounding areas in the washrooms etc are full of cobwebs and dust, totally puts me off and so we won't be visiting again even though we like the area, it's back to Dunstan Hill, at least the Camping and Caravan Club ensure those areas are cleaned properly. It completely spoiled my holiday and I couldn't wait to go home. They are simple things to rectify but what a difference it would make to your holiday.

One water point isn't sufficient either.

The only up side was we could walk into Craster in the evening and have a meal at the Jolly Sailor, a great improvement there since we last visited four years ago and the food was superb, perhaps a little pricey, but worth it!

A super site - the facilities, despite being part of a farm building, are clean and effective. (10p for showers seems a bit old-fashioned and I'm not sure why they still do this). This minor criticism apart, the owners were really helpful, the site was quiet at night despite being quite full at the weekend, and a nearby pub did a decent dinner on Sunday night. A great spot.
