Hi just returned from five nights at this site, site very easy to find straight off the a1m well signposted access road which was very smooth with lots of passing places. The site itself was immaculate from the grass the flowers to all the facilities. All of the pitches were nice and wide plenty of space in between units the staff very pleasant and helpful. Must say that the toilet block is the cleanest I have used power showers lots of hot water wide cubicles. I would recommend this site and will go back. Not a lot on site for kids other than small play area but that's the norm for club sites as we were group of adults only did not affect us.

First trip to Dunbar Camping and Caravan site. Lovely place, great play area for the kids at the far end of the site, shower/toilet/washing up facilities all very clean and well maintained. Great addition of a family washroom which is ideal when travelling with toddlers/preschoolers. A bit further to the beach than anticipated, if heading down with small children it's really too far to walk. 5 mins in the car though. It was a very quiet site despite being busy on the May bank holiday weekend. Although there is nowhere to plug in hair straighteners etc, the hairdryers which are 20p are quite powerful and the 20p lasts ages. The only thing that would improve the site for those like us in small tents would be a covered cooking/ eating area. We had thunder, lightning and heavy rain late afternoon til quite well into the evening. Had to decamp to the Chinese restaurant in Dunbar for dinner (the food was very nice though!) Hope to be back soon!

Stayed here for three nights in lovely weather. The site was not too busy. The site is large and spacious with elevated grass and hard standing pitches. Most pitches have great views out towards Dunbar and the sea. The toilet and shower block was always clean and tidy and cleaned every morning. (Not too sure if it is suitably large enough if the site was busy) There is a large children's play area towards the bottom of the site. There is a reasonably well stocked shop on site. The staff were always found to be helpful and friendly.

Quick summary: one of the best sites we've visited. Picturesque location. Truly immaculate facilities. Very helpful wardens. Pitches may need rock pegs. Rubbish bins located outside the campsite entrance.

We stayed in our Camplet Classic, arriving to pitch up in ridiculously windy weather. This later ended up with gusts of 70 mph through the night in what is a very exposed campsite.

The site location is down a single track road. There are plentiful, large, passing places so the final two minutes getting to the site entrance won't be a problem - even for the largest units/trucks.

You'd be hard pushed not to get a sea view from your pitch! They are level, large and well drained. While there I was told that it was originally a lime quarry and then had been in filled to reclaim the land. For this reason you may find that a few centimetres below the surface you'll hit bits of stone and gravel. Although you could probably hammer in straight pegs with a heavy hammer, some rock pegs would be far more secure. Again, this site is quite exposed.

There is only one amenities block for the site. We never had to queue but you may find that morning rush hour would be best avoided. The block and surrounding grounds are really well looked after. The accessible room was large, clean and well equipped.

There are two dog walking areas, one was large and open. Access to the beach is either a two minute car journey or a ten minute walk.

Definitely be back; one couple had been there six times.

We have just had a good weekend at this site. It is well laid out on terraces, so everyone gets a fabulous sea view. Staff were welcoming and the toilet & shower block was spotless. Hairdryers needed 20p, which is a bit daft these days, when everyone is consuming limitless electricity at their pitches. During the day, this was a peaceful site.

However both the Friday and Saturday night we were there, there was lots of noise coming from a nearby venue, so we could hear loud disco music and speeches using microphones. This went on beyond midnight on the Saturday. We were in a van with our windows closed and still found it disturbing and intrusive. I appreciate that this is outwith the control of the CCC, but it did reduce our enjoyment of an otherwise lovely site.

This is a camping and caravanning club site and one of the best I have visited. As the site is relatively new I would rate the toilet block as one of the best I have seen on club sites. As usual the club has got it sussed so all the other facilities like chemical toilet grey water disposal are well organised. There is a small shop on site. The site sits back from the sea behind a raised strip of land and behind the golf course which reduces the cooling effect of the sea breezes and makes it a great site for sitting out and chilling. It is a big site but the layout (on several levels) is such that you are not aware of the size. There is a good dog walk on site and access to an area of rough grassland via a stile for more energetic pooches. Being a relatively new site the trees are still small so the site will only get better as they grow.
