Reviewer: Pamelab21 4 reviews from this member

Just spent the September weekend (Glasgow local holiday) here for 3 nights and would not go back again when busy.

Kids were allowed to run across pitches, kick leather footballs and believe it or not play Frisbee (with other adults!) Normal 5mph rule not stuck to at all, watch the kids!) When mentioned to warden about balls and Frisbees on departure he already knew so why was nothing done??

Toilets are basically portakabins clad with wood to make them more attractive looking but clean and functional, used the family shower area following pool visits.

Entertainment a little lacking but it is a smaller park that the other Haven parks we have been to before.

Touring vans are the furthest away from the main entrance and entertainment, long walk but no noise!

Swimming pool could do with an overhaul, at busy times hard to find a changing room and don't use the lockers as you walk in as they keep your money, walk up the poolside past the changing room to find more lockers that refund your money (when visiting at least once a day with kids, it adds up!)No one seems to keep the changing room floor clean, dirty nappies stacked up in changing areas as no bins and freezing cold showers.

Very expensive Spar shop to stock up or Co op a long walk outside of park, turn left at exit.

Just returned from five sun drenched days and nights at this wonderful site, we paid £15 per night but spoke to a chap who is a member of the Motorcaravan club and he only paid £6 per night!. 1st these are brand new (opened may 2015) touring pitches and we are so glad haven have replicated many of there other site and blessed Seton sands with the euro electric pitches. These provide a hardstanding for caravan or motorhome a gravel area for awning and a monoblock area for your car, own water and and drainage and tv point. 2nd Stevie and Fiona are suited right down to the ground for the job of site wardens, they pounced on you on arrival and nothing was too much trouble.

The new touring area is right at the rear of the site which provides a great divide between the main complex but is still only a brisk 5 minute walk away.

The new toilet/shower block on first impressions looks like a eco friendly style type building but are only portacabins clad in wood panelling which are fantastic but long term don't know how well they will stand the test?

As for the site itself the Boatie blest restaurant has had a complete make over and is very modern and has a great feel about it. Food is great service was good and prices reasonable.

There is a small amusement arcade and soft play area for small kids.

The swimming pool was serviceable but could be next on the park list for a makeover.

The showbar and entertainment does exactly what it says on the tin its a Haven site after all and primarily geared up for kids.

We never explored the local area as it was just our second time away with our 7 month old son and cause we had such superb weather just decided to spend our time and money on site.

Well done haven! we will return 5*

Good points

Site is in a nice location, cheap deals available.

Touring warden was nice and helpful, very pleasant and done a litter pick throughout the day.

Bad points

Childrens entertainment is poor.

Toilet, showers and dish wash area need knocked down and rebuilt.

Touring field needs levelled and would be much better if it had hard standings for caravans.

Toilets were old and past it, they were cleaned but because of the age of they never looked it.

Complex could do with a good clean, but what haven doesn't!

What a lovely friendly site. Stayed off peak for 3 nights with my 2 dogs for £23 inc electric hook up

30 second walk to the toilet block and showers -these facilities were clean and never closed. Had an odd wiff but I think that's because of a beach location

15 second walk to limited shop -expect higher prices.

14 second walk to chippy super clean and modern - I think about £6. 40 for fish and chips.

16 second walk to launderette - didn't use.

7 second walk to drinking water.

9 second walk to eurobins

Receptionists were overworked and spoke with a well rehearsed speal. Site workers would not pass anyone without greeting me and smiling.

Beside a beach but that was not very pretty compared to what I am used to but let the dogs burn off energy at 5am!

More or less 20-30 minutes car travel to anywhere in Edinburgh due to location. Bus stop at site entrance.

Co-op and lidl 3-4 minute drive in car

Pitches are a bit sandy so would recommend proper pegs.

Visited this site on the first Bank Holiday of May, and I must say it has restored my faith in Haven. After booking in at reception, I was told that the touring co-ordinator would meet us on the field and show us our pitch. What a friendly bloke! Having a large family tent, I was expecting grumbles, but got quite the opposite. He said he had seen we were coming with a big tent so had reserved us a large pitch, and given that it was a Bank holiday, the pitch was huge, far bigger than we needed, which was a real luxury.

It was very windy when we pitched, but I cant blame Haven for that! The amount of windsurfers and kite surfers on the beach should have given it away! It was so bad our tent got damaged, and the touring guy even came back, and offered his help. Throughout our stay all of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We occasionally use Haven sites as a treat for our kids. And although smaller than others we've used, Seton Sands had everything they wanted. The pool was clean and well maintained, it had a small amusement area, a shop and take away on site, happy teenagers. And directly opposite the site was a beach, not the nicest Scotland has to offer, but ideal for walks with our dogs.

It's only a short drive into Edinburgh, Musselburgh and some lovely little villages. With an abundance of golf courses nearby.

In short, we all had a lovely time, were well impressed with the site, and will definitely be returning one day.

All pitches handy for the site facilities. The whole site is on the inland side of coast road. Take-away fast-food/chippy includes eat-in which can be useful. Onsite shop prices were not unexpectedly high. Public bus into Edinburgh has its terminus at the site and you can often get on the (waiting) bus rather than waiting outside at the bus stop. We quite enjoyed this site and will probably use it when going to this area/Edinburgh again. We were pleasantly surprised to enjoy Edinburgh so much (when not trying to drive through it).
