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).

Just back from 3 nights in Seton Sands.

A good quality site in which the touring site is overseen by Malcolm who seemed to be around all the time and able to help everyone. Our pitch was at the laundrette end of the touring ground which was lucky as the middle section got completely flooded. Malcolm did move those affected as soon as he could. The toilet block etc, was basic and clean enough. The floor was always muddy but what could you expect with people in and out with wellies on. It was cleaned regularly throughout the day. The kids loved the site and kids club and we'll definitely be returning there. We never left the site but local area looked good and plenty of choice in shopping. We had most of our food etc with us, but on site shop was well stocked with usual 'campsite' prices!

Although no curfew was imposed the site was very quiet at night, with most people enjoying FAMILY holidays!

Seaton Sands has an entertainment venue for kids which is excellent - even has a swimming pool. Staying in a caravan is fine. However their attention to the camping side is very poor - sunken camping field with poor drainage resulted in the flooding of our tent and the formation of a small pond near the toilet block last year. This year they have thrown strips of turf (badly) over the area that was flooded (the pond).

The shower block was grim as there is nowhere for you to put your clothes in the tiny cubicle. It looked so grubby I used the disabled shower - which was bigger but still no chair or place to hang clothes.

We stayed here last year and attended the Edinburgh Tattoo which was fantastic - the same thick cobwebs and dead spiders still adorn the ceiling in the toilet block.

Camping field needs work - proper drainage and re-turfing. Toilet/shower block needs gutting and redesigning so shower areas give somewhere to put your clothes and get dressed.
