Been to this well managed site before. The facilities are good. They have still not made the floor in the showers to flow in the direction of the drains. Do not put anything on the foor it will get wet. Showers very small area. But they it's been like that for years.

They have a on site snack bar now. Run by Craster arms pub. Which is also dog friendly.

Beach just across road. Shop across road. Some good prices.

Took advantage of oap rates. 16 a night.

Nicely located site on the edge of Beadnell, plenty of space for pitches, well kept. We booked on the same evening as we arrived, friendly reception from staff, who showed us direct to pitch. Located just across from the sea and a 5 minute walk from the village beach and pubs. Had a good meal in the Craster Arms.

Facilities are not new but kept very clean.

An excellent site located just over the road from a lovely beach.

The village of Beadnell has a couple of good pubs and a nice chippy.

A mile or do away is Seahouses - a larger village which is worth visiting.

Facilities well maintained but a little dated.

We stopped here for a long weekend being unable to book a pitch with E H you at Dunstan Hill, having sworn 36 yrs ago never to return due to the site being extremely exposed ( we dropped our tent in the early hours) reviews on here saying the same plus commenting on the cubicle size in the toilets & showers didn't help but we carried on. The only comment I will agree with is that water does pool on the shower cubicle floor - a simple fix - take a non slip shower mat. 2 of the Gents toilets were wider than the others -I'm a 46 chest & had no problem in these, 2 of the Gents showers were narrower than the rest due to supports - the others were wide enough but could do with being longer to prevent water pooling - the floor appears to be very uneven. There's an on site mini bistro doing breakfasts & evening meals reasonably priced for full English b/fast or fish & chips/ steak pie & chips in the evening. Superb friendly staff & superb location mean that we will more than likely spend our summer hols here next year. The beach opposite is rocky but sandier nearer to Seahouses and also beyond Beadnell itself. There is a hedge to the west of the site which once mature will give some good shelter, we pitched alongside a low stone wall enjoying 2 days of sunshine before a rainy night. I must add that the front fields we pitched in 36 yrs ago are no longer used apart from allowing incoming units to wait off the road - which was quiet despite its proximity. Give it a try!

Just spent a weekend at this campsite. First time camping in many years and had such a positive and encouraging experience, I can't wait to go again. The site was well organised, clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

You can arrive from 1pm but we got there a but earlier and could park in the car park and have a walk over to the beach which is right across the road. (They kindly let us into the toilets too!) The check in process was simple and not a long wait. We were taken by a campsite assistant over to a few pitches which were available and were given the option to choose which we wanted. The assistant was really helpful in explaining which way was best to pitch the tent in the high winds. He also came back later to check we were ok. The pitches are well spaced with caravans and tents mixed into together (though there looked to be some hard standing pitches for caravans/motor homes too).

Having read the reviews I was concerned about the possible distance to the toilet but it was less than 100m from our pitch. The furthest pitches could only have been 200m away. At night the electricity hookup points and water stations are lit up and this was great for night time toilet trips! The female toilets (at least 8?) and showers (6) were kept clean and tidy at all times. They are closed for cleaning from 1045-12 but during this time you can acces the disabled toilet (normally only accessible with a radar key). No problems with the showers not draining properly as per past reviews. But this could be because they have added an outside shower for cleaning wetsuits and sandy things and discourage you using the indoor showers for that as the sand blocks the drains. Oh the hairdryer in the toilets was the only disappointment and I ended up using the hand dryers instead!

There are indoor and outdoor washing up facilities and rubbish disposal points. It's a shame they don't have any recycling facilities. And also for tent campers without electric hookup it would have been great if they had a communal fridge which could be used. But that's me just being especially picky. There is a large kids play area with wooden climbing structures. Because there is a road through the site, lots of children were out on bikes and scooters. But this wasn't disruptive or noisy (and great to see kids out playing rather than on tablets and phones!)

I had good signal and 3G with a BT mobile but my friend with TESCO had nothing, so beware of that.

It is a very windy site and so you need to make sure you have steel tent pegs and leg in all your guy lines. We ended up buying a windbreak which is definitely worthwhile on this site.

There is a small shop on site which sells camping essentials as well as dry and fresh food items. It's ipen 830-1030 and 1-6. There is a burger van on site open in the morning and again in the evening. The local fish and chip shop is a 3 minute walk down the road. Its a perfect spot for walking into Beadnell Bay (about 1 miles) which has a large sandy beach. Or you can walk along the beach (rocky in places) to Seahouses which takes about an hour and a quarter. Or take a drive up to bamburgh which has the most incredible sand dunes and beaches.

The barrier to the site is closed from 11pm to 6 or 7am. But you can always park your car in the car park just the other side of the barrier until the morning.

There are always staff around in clearly marked uniforms (in the office, out watering plants, cutting grass or checking the toilets!) if you need help. And there is always someone on duty assistant. We found them so helpful and didn't make us feel at all stupid for all our questions as new campers. This camping experience has given me the confidence to go camping alone now. So thank you so much!

This is a nice site with friendly hard working wardens. It is in a great position for visiting the attractions of the Northumberland coast with Seahouses and Bamburgh only a short drive away and the village of Beadnell a 10 minute walk away. The problem with the site is the shower block, the showers fill with water that doesn't drain away, both from your own shower and the neighbouring cubicles, (not very pleasant) so you have to try and get dressed in 1/2 inch of water! There are not enough showers for the number of pitches on site and there is also only one point for emptying chemical toilets.
