Reviewer: Oldwolf 8 reviews from this member

The site is generally flat, where the pitches have been used over time the actual footprint area of the tent is very uneven and could do with some maintenance. Even though we paid for a jumbo pitch with EHU our set up was on the limit of the pitch on three sides - so no option to reposition the tent.

As others have mentioned the toilet block is showing its age and to finish drying post a shower - best done outside of the cubicle as the floor gets flooded on all.

Hot water is hot - OK for adults - but warning when showering small children. Despite the criticism the wash block is kept clean.

No playground, but the beach is adjacent to the site and kids had many happy hours rock pooling. If you want a play area the local park in Beadnell bay suffices.

We had a wet and cold week - but the local area more than made up for it - especially if like me you love Castles and Beaches.

If you love smoked fish then the smokery in Seahouses comes highly recommended.

A great touring location.

This was our first visit to this site but certainly won't be our last. The stewards were very welcoming and the site was clean and tidy. It was a short walk to the pub which served very good food. We walked into Seahouses along the beach and caught a boat to the Farne Islands and saw puffins, guillemots and seals.

We booked a 6 night stay at Beadnell bay during the May half term. The site was quite easy to get to - a few bendy roads but not a problem if you take it steady. We arrived and received a friendly greeting before being shown to a couple of large hard standing pitches and being able to select which one we wanted. The entrance has a barrier with access code. The toilet block is large and clean also with an access code. The toilets and shower block could do with some minor updating but apparently it is going to be getting a large refurbishment soon. There is a path directly into seahouses and Beadnell and takes about a 40 minute walk to get into seahouses. The beach is directly opposite and easily accessed from the site. A minor criticism is there is no child's play area, quite surprising considering the size of the site but there's miles of beach to entertain them with rock pooling! A few reviews mention road noise. We were at the front of the site and didn't notice much noise at all. Previously pitches were adjacent to the road side but the national trust has stopped them doing this and now all pitches are further in, behind the wall - so presume this is why we found it nice and peaceful. The chemical toilet disposal is slightly cramped as it is cupboard sized, although after the first time I managed to empty and rinse it quite easily! This is a lovely site, with great walking/cycling route into Seahouses and great access to the beach. If you're staying here try Élan pizzeria - pizzas are amazing, fish and chips from one of the many restaurants in seahouses and have a drink in the Bamburgh Castle Inn - lovely views and real ales! Will definitely return!

Reviewer: Waggyfromderby 19 reviews from this member

Facilities are not good enough. Some say they have been updated. Well, they should complain to whoever updated them. My main complaint is the showers, they are too narrow for a start, the waste water runs the wrong way, under the shower curtain to the area where you need to dry yourself. Try putting clothes on without getting them wet! Impossible. I stored mine in a loo, and sneaked across with my towel shielding me to dry and change in somewhere dryer. The toilet cubicles too are too narrow for a large but not overweight person. A good redesign needed.

We booked a hard standing and had to put awning on it as well as campervan, but the gravel was not compressed enough so no grip for the tent pegs, even though we have Rock Pegs knocked in by mallet, with the consequence that any strong wind pulls them out. The site is very open and windy, but this is due to the opening of the new field away from the road. A very good hedge has been planted and will give good protection when it grows. The facilities are far too far away from this new area.

The location is good with a beach that runs between Seahouses and Beadnell just over the road.

A good bus service will take you to many places along the coast such as Craster 12 miles away by road but luckily only 7 miles along the coast if you walk back, plan your lunch at the SHIP INN and Brewery at Low Newton which is also on the coast a couple of miles from Beadnell.

The Craster Arms in Beadnell offers good food, Real Ale and is dog friendly and you get 20% off your food bill on production of your camping and caravan club card.

The Good Points

Pleasant lady on reception. We were shown to our pitch by the assistant warden who helped us to push our camper into position and gave us some tips on the area.

The beach was just across the road for a pleasant walk. The local shop just another few minutes walk away.

Very good bus service hailed from just outside the site.

Took a boat trip to the Farne islands which was wonderful and exceeded our expectations

The Bad Points

There is only 1 facilities block for 150 pitches with male and female using the same entrance which always seemed to 'smell'. As it is by reception it is a long way to walk when you have been pitched next to the road.

Water and everything just seemed to be a long way from our pitch which is unusual for a C&CC site

The Wifi signal was non existent on our pitch. As I use internet banking I had no option but to park close to reception and try and get a slightly better signal.

There seemed to be more dogs on site than humans but maybe we were just unlucky as we also had neighbours for 3 nights who talked very loudly until midnight.

We left the site a day early and definitely would not return again.

Location

Situated on the main road between Beadnell and Seahouses, and just metres from the dunes and excellent sandy beaches. Two good pubs in Beadnell - 5-10 minutes walk. Convenience store and chippy just over the road. Excellent base for exploring Northumberland's coast.

Facilities

Large flat site which has been updated in recent years with EHU and hard standing pitches. Showers etc. Of usual CCC high standards. Great team of friendly staff.

An excellent site!
