Nice enough site, location is very good, we deliberately picked a grass site with views to Bass Rock, downside of this was we ended up a fair way from shower block although there was a separate toilet block a bit closer

Long way from hook up point though so had to move pitches slighty to reach, even with a 20m cable, I was offered a lone of a longer cable though, surprised at 10 amp connection in this day and age, tripped out a couple of times at night so had to be careful with what was switched on

A dog friendly site which was a bit of a problem, witnessed too many owners allowing their dogs to defecate on the grass, sometimes close to caravans, disgusting folk.

Stayed 6 nights, plenty to do in surrounding area and would use again if back in the region

Our review of the site will be pretty much an exact replica of the previous one. We had stayed at Tantallon a few years ago and remembered a very warm reception, amazingly fabulous views and decent facilities - all of them coming at considerable cost.

This time the welcome was far from warm - the fellow in reception was very offhand to the point that we felt it a shame for the many overseas visitors there. We were allocated a pitch and told that much of the site was flooded - indeed as soon as we got to the grass pitch we had to change into walking boots as we were sinking into the squelchy grass.

There were loads of fresh water and grey waste points - one drawback being that to fill the aquaroll involved getting soaked as the taps had no fitting that our home made hose attachment could fit (it fits everywhere else we've been).

The toilet block nearest the grass field is a bit tired but clean and adequate. The main shower block is a bit of a curiosity (and according to the plans up on the wall is due for a revamp). The showers actually comprise small and very badly designed bathrooms with shower, toilet and wash basin. Not enough hooks, no surface to put anything on and a half mast shower curtain meant that showering was an bit of an ordeal rather than a pleasure. For gents since there are only urinals in the toilets they have to queue for a shower room if they need a toilet.

As has been commented on many times before the cost of the site is very high. We were over 30 for a sodden grass pitch with EHU, no awning, no kids, no dogs.

But then there is that view.

The positives first. Excellent location, easy walking distance into North Berwick, great views if you are lucky enough to get a pitch on the perimeter, great for children I guess, there is a well equipped playground for them.

The not so positive. We chose this site for the location, so we knew it was going to cost more than our usual club sites, however 40. 00 per night for two adults, two dogs and an awning, I'm surprised they don't charge for the air you breath whilst you are there ! With that in mind I believe the site is in need of some investment, toilet blocks are adequate, just, the site has a neglected feel about it, probably the result of being part of a group. The grass pitches are nearly all sloping, chocks / levellers are essential. Granted we have had a poor Summer and the grass had not had much of a chance to dry out, but they do get VERY wet ! I would not like to be here when the site is full, the pitches are way too close to each other.

The guy in reception was obviously not too happy in his job, wasn't the most welcoming or helpful chap.

Having said all of that, we enjoyed our 8 night stay and may well return at a quieter time, once I have saved up !

Good Location and nice views. The hard standing pitch that we were allocated was on quite a slope and even though we used our levelling chocs the van was not level. Also we were a long way from the electricity point, two cables only just reached. The shower arrangements could do with improvement and at 33 per night I don't think this site is very good value for money. Its also quite crowded.

Very easy site to find and access. The lady at reception was very welcoming even though we arrived an hour early (check in is at 2pm though as the pitch was empty she let us on). We had a fully serviced pitch, large and well spaced, it backed onto the main road, a little noisy during the day, but no problem at night. The toilets are very nice and very clean, but the showers are in small rooms with toilets and sinks and are very cramped, would be better making them showers only. The actual showering area is very small, the curtain is very flimsy and too short, so water goes all over the floor and there is nowhere left dry to get dressed. There are only 4 showers each so not enough for the size of the site. The views from the site are lovely, the walk to the centre of North Berwick takes about 30 minutes down via the golf course and the beach, Tesco is a level 10 minute walk from site and Aldi a further 5 minutes. There is a small dog walk in front of the grass touring area. As North Berwick is so near Edinburgh it is quite expensive to eat out, for a light lunch if you follow the road out of town towards Aldi/Tesco you will pass the tennis club that has a nice little cafe with indoor and outdoor seating, good food at very reasonable prices and you can watch the tennis while you eat! Would we visit this site again? Yes.

Great location, scenic and serene for the most part. Great links with North Berwick and surrounds. Local supermarket and beach access. Not so great with toilet facilities. Small level of facilities available for the overall size of park. Not enough staff available, although infrequently cleaned by one person.
