This was our second visit to this site. We were promised a new toilet block in 2012, and early 2013, but it has been delayed yet again until 2014. The site appears to have new people managing it, and the standards have dropped a lot since our last visit. The toilet block is old and dated, and not big enough for the size of site, and not good enough to deserve the 4 star rating and the 5 star prices to camp there. The small (shop) is very expensive for the sweets and drinks, you are cheaper going to the Westbarns shop just along the road. No one seems to patrol the site at any time of day, apart from a mower cutting the grass at 8. 00am! one Sunday morning.
Great site in a great location. Our tent pitch we were initially given would have ruined the kids play area in centre of tent area. When we pointed this out we were given, and happy to take, another location that was perfect.
Toilet/Shower block is good but in need of upgrade and I noted that they have poster up with plans for brand new block. Coming 2014! Looks excellent.
With these upgraded facilities and the cracking location this will be a very special site indeed.
This is a fantastic site. The location is just superb, you pop through the trees, which shelter the campsite from any sea breezes, and you are at the sea. There is a small bridge which takes you onto the beach, though be careful as it is known locally as 'the bridge to nowhere' once the tide comes in.
The site is split into different sections which gives the site a homely, cosy feel though the whole area must be quite large.
There is a camping area, a grassed electric hook-up area (where we were with our VW camper), an area of hard standing pitches and another section of static caravans.
The site facilities were very clean.
There is so much to do in and around Dunbar. The beaches are incredible, the site sits on the John Muir Way (a coastal walk), the East Links Farm Park is minutes away and great for kids up to about 9 or 10.
Dunbar itself has an old harbour, a selection of nice shops, a large supermarket on the outskirts, a good indoor pool and a fantastic large park.
We have been a few times to this site and will definitely be back.
What a fabulous site! It was our first visit, but we will definitely be back to this site. Tracey on reception is a gem, full of information of where to go, and what to do. She is obviously very happy in her role.
The site is very well kept, although we found the hard standing pitches a bit close together, and did not have a lot of room for our awning. But this did not dampen our holiday one bit. We got a fabulous welcome when we arrived, and something we have never had before, was a cheery wave goodbye (from Tracey) as we left the site. !
When reading the last review I imagine the campers must have been at a different holiday park from us. The lady on reception is very, very polite, friendly, helpful, and also very informative. We stayed during the heavy rain storms, but we were in a touring caravan, but most campers were very upbeat about the rain. We do live in Britain after all.
The new toilets have not been built yet, but are still getting built, which will be better in the end, but the existing ones are always spotless.
We will be back next summer, hopefully with sunshine next time.
On arrival the lady at reception was workmanlike, but not friendly. We were allocated a pitch and even though others were available that we preferred we were told that these had been pre-booked by other visitors. I have to say that this did not appear to be the case as several pitches remained vacant during our stay, but we were stuck with our allotted pitch.
Although the site advertised new toilet and washing facilities which were to have been completed for this season, the old ones remain and only the footings for the new block. At peak times in the morning and evening this led to queueing and limited availability. The new block is scheduled to be completed later this year after the busy season so hopefully next year and beyond this will not be a problem.
The site is very flat, ideal for campers, with plenty of pitches offering electric hook-up. It's well kept and very tidy. It's on the site of a former 19th century brick factory and the subsoil appears to be clay so water sits, even following a light downpour and drainage could be improved.
The shop is a let-down, though, offering bare essentials and that's something they could improve. At similar sites charging the rates they do the facilities and shop range are considerably better. Good if they offered basics like milk, bread, butter, basic culinary items, etc. And maybe daily papers.
Overall, I would visit again and the proximity to Dunbar and the local beach is a great advantage.
