It looked a good site so booked here for 3 nights. Site is in good spot on the outskirts of the town and therefore handy for shops.

Toilet block was fine and had been refurbished recently I think.

Only four tents on our first night and one disturbed all the others. No one from the site was around to do anything about it.

Workmen started on the site at 7. 30a. M. Drilling and banging. Cutting the grass at 8. 30a. M. Mainly static caravans so didn't seem to care about campers. Just 2 tents on our 2nd night and just us on our last night.

Good job there was only us few there because toilet blocks were not cleaned whilst we were there!

Won't be going back- £25 with EHU. Nice countryside around though.

We enjoyed our stay at seaton estates. Nice layout for tourers entertainment was good on sat night kids allowed in the main room. Staff could not be more helpful.

Main and to be honest only real gripes would be £20 refundable deposit for toilet key and at the time we visited were not required as doors did not lock. Toilets were clean enough but no toilet paper in any of the cubicles male or as I am led to believe female cubicles. My wife resorted to using the shower in our caravan as she was totally unimpressed with the showers in the block.

The shop was poor I cant help but think they are missing out on a good source of income as our 2 boys wanted to spend their pocket money in it and they came back with ice poles not the usual sort of stuff they waste their money on.

Overall I would rate the site 7 out of 10 but would go back to the site as the positives far outweigh the negatives

Just arrived on the 9th august was impressed with works that are going on. I have visited this site before, last time toilets were not clean, but they now have cleaners that clean twice a day, very impressed toilets were spotless what a difference from last visit. I would definitely return again.

Good environment for children with play park area plenty to do. Club house has been revamped, very nice atmosphere I must say. We walked up the top end of the site this is needing a lot of work yet but is being tidied up to the best of there ability just now. There are nice country walks round this area for anyone who likes this kind of thing, personally I just go to relax after working so hard all week. I will come back to this site, very nice.

This campsite should be a place we would love to return to. The park for the kids and the bar and evening entertainment make it a great place for kids. The local area is also great with loads to do both indoor and outdoor. However it is let down massively by its toilets and their lack of cleanliness. They were not cleaned when we were there. The smell was awful and we couldn't let the kids go alone. Not only were they unhygienic but teenagers from the residential caravans used them on an evening to vandalise, smoke and drink. When we complained the site manager said it would be rectified and that he would ensure the night warden would check the toilets. A bucket of bleach was thrown on the toilet floor and left wet and we saw no night warden. Very disappointing. This was made worse when one afternoon the water main burst so there was no running water all day and even the nice toilets in bar became unusable. Even with no water however they were still able to keep the restaurant open? Nice area, nice site but awful health and safety.

We (family of five, two adults, 3 children, 13,11,8, and a dog) went to this site because friends have a static caravan on it and we were visiting them. I have stayed in their caravan previously without children or husband and the site seemed very nice.

We arrived on the Friday and were told to choose our own pitch, although later I saw others being directed to specific pitches. The camping field takes about forty units and is separate from the static caravans but surrounded by them at the same time. The pitches were average size and we managed to just fit our very large tent into one. We did extend into another pitch after a day as there was only twenty units on the site and the caravan next to us was a couple of pitches away. This dropped to about ten units on the Sunday.

The facilities for the children were quite good with a new play area and grassy area with goal posts. A lot of the children have bikes and the site seemed very safe for them to go about on their own. There are lots of other grassy areas not specifically dedicated to children but they play on them anyway. There is also a children's club which is open in the evenings with daytime activities at the weekend. Only one of my children went to this once but he seemed to enjoy himself. He came back at about 10 o'clock although it is open til 1am Friday and Saturday night, I think this is mainly used by the static owners who go to the entertainment at the weekends. There is also meant to be a games room but it was closed the whole time we were there and no explanation was given for this. There is still talk of a pool being built.

The setting of the site is lovely and well maintained and there are apparently spa facilities in the main area. However there were a few things we did not like about this site. Firstly the main walk from the entertainment complex to some of the static caravans is through the camping field and people returning to their caravans had no respect for others who were camping. It was as if they were walking in the day, talking loudly and shouting at each other. Other campers were also very noisy and there was no noise curfew, although I don't think the staff would have stopped the noise anyway. The entertainment goes on until 1am and can be heard clearly until this time.

The second issue we had with the site are the toilet and shower facilities. The facilities are quite dated. However they are also dirty. I know I am sleeping in a field but I want to be able to have a shower in nice facilities. The toilet and showers were cleaned once on the Friday and Saturday but were not cleaned again during our stay and we left on the Tuesday morning. Their version of cleaning seemed to be to hose everything down, or else someone doesn't know how to use a mop, as after they had been cleaned the floor was saturated for hours. In the ladies there were parts of the toilet and sinks that had the same dirt on them the whole time we were there, so even when they do clean them they don't do a very thorough job. Also there was a toilet cistern leaking from one row of the toilets which meant they were impossible to use as the floor was one big puddle. Another issue was that there was no toilet paper in the toilets and signs said this was due to acts of vandalism. At least they didn't charge for the showers!

The area surrounding the campsite is lovely. We walked to the cliffs and down to a sandy/stony beach where the kids went in the sea and we enjoyed the view. This took us about 40 minutes to walk to through a field and along the cliffs, which was a nice walk. There is a cliff walk that goes on for miles if the beach is not your thing. We also went to Lunan Bay for the day, which is stunning. There is a long golden beach with sand dunes to the back. There are no toilet facilities but the beauty of the place makes up for that. A good dog walking beach as it goes on for miles. Arbroath itself is a nice wee town, although we didn't visit it this time. There is also a great kids play area on the front at Montrose.

If people are looking for a lively campsite and the toilet facilities don't bother them it would probably be a good campsite to go to and it is very well priced at £20 with EHU and £10 without, no extra charge for kids or dogs. I am going back to stay in my friends static caravan.

We visited Seaton as a way of finding out how to use our van and to get to know it having purchased it the week before we went. Seaton is only 10 miles away from where we live but what a lovely spot and you feel that you are away much further. Set within trees you really have no feeling of being close to home and was perfect for the dog as it does have a dog walking area. The whole park is undergoing renovation and upgrading - the play-parks for the kids are new and great and there is a large playing field with nets to play volleyball etc.
The main building has also undergone renovations and refurbishment to a high standard - the toilets inside are lovely - the bar has two large seating areas so if you do not want to go to the bingo and see the live entertainment you do not have to - this is a great plus for us as my husband hates clubby bands.
There is also a kids club advertised but we did not use this when we visited and there is an arcade with air hockey and pool table. The touring area is all grass which I confess I like as it is soft underfoot in the awning - with most of the pitches are level.
The owners and staff are very helpful and friendly. The toilet blocks for the campers were clean but dated and the showers were far to hot for young children - but I am led to believe these are to be renovated as part of the on-going upgrade - and I am aware there is a swimming pool also in the plans. We have visited the site again following our fist visit and I continue to like it and plan to continue to use it for short breaks.
I would recommend it for longer breaks for those who do not live so close and know the area as we do. There is plenty to do in and around Angus. The site is very reasonably priced only £15.50/night for our van and awning with electricity - no extra charges for children, pets etc.
