 Stayed at seacote for 2 weeks.

Site is mainly static vans but has 2 areas for touring vans, we stayed in both areas.

The site was very reasonably priced for the 6 weeks holiday.

First week spent on the back field which was quiet in the main and pleasant.

Second week we moved to the seafront where no awnings are aloud but you are right on the sea wall and overlook the beach and sea.

The pitches are fully serviced although the drainage is literally a soak away.

The main compromise here is the toilet and shower facilities which were constantly in need of a clean and could do with a complete overhaul.

The area is very dog friendly and they can be taken in the Seacote Hotel bar area.

If you can live with a poor amenities block then the views from the seafront pitches are worthwhile.

 I won't describe the site too much as it has all been said before. Mainly statics with a few pitches for tourers.

We booked a seafront pitch and couldn't have been closer to the sea - if the weather was rough I think we would have been swept away! It was great for the views and being close to the beach. Even though it wasn't warm enough for us to sit outside all evening, we still enjoyed watching the waves from the comfort of our caravan. One night we even had ringside seats for watching the lifeboat crew practice launching their boat.

We loved this site and would go back again as it is so close to the beach. Whitehaven is not far away although we went in the car as we didn't see any buses during the time we were there. It is an ideal site for us as it was fairly quiet with the sea and fields all around but near enough to several towns and villages if we fancied going out.

The only negative point was the toilet block. It was filthy. It appears that people in the statics use the showers on the way back from the beach and leave them in a mess. The block is also quite a way from the touring pitches and I wouldn't have walked there on my own in the dark.

 Just one overnight stay and no complaints really, the tent area was quite a pleasant area. My only complaint was the toilet block was situated in the middle of a lot of static caravans and seemed to be furthest away from the people who really need it.

The tent camping area was a grassy area with sea views.

St Bees is the start of the coast to coast route and is on the edge of area which seems to be ignored by the majority of people visiting the lake district.

The campsite is not too far from the town centre and the railway station

 Seacoates is mainly a static site with 2 separate areas for tourers, one hard standing facing the beach and another well drained grassy area at the back. All have electric hook-up and water. There is also an area over the bridge for tents.

The toilet block is in the middle of the site, each having 3 toilets and 2 showers for men and women. The block is quite dated, but was kept clean, and the showers were free and piping hot.

There is a hotel just outside the site that sells reasonably priced food, and also a shop that sells the basics, with a great little cafe attached.

A bus leaves for Whitehaven and the surrounding area from the beach carpark, and a 5 min walk away takes you to the train station. The village is 2 mins away up the hill, where there is a shop, a few pubs and a few people selling fresh homegrown veg, etc. We bought a dozen duck eggs from a house near the station and they were delicious!

We stayed at St Bees May Day weekend for 4 days and had a wonderful time. It's the 4th time we have stayed here and love it. Everyone is so friendly, the beach is great for all the family, with fine sand and rock pools, and dogs are allowed on the beach all year round.

 Visited Seacote during Easter holidays 2011, on arrival we were very pleased as we had a seafront pitch in the lifeboat section which we had booked in December.

Each pitch in that section has hookup and water and the weather was really good so the views were great, it was very busy on the beach area with groups of young teens for some reason, not sure where they all came from as there is nothing for miles around!

I took our 6 year old to the toilets only to find them very dirty, full of muddy water grass and toilet paper, they were not cleaned until day 3 of our holiday which was very disappointing as they really were a disgrace and had run out of toilet paper as well.

The other thing was the distance that the toilet and shower block was from the pitches, too far to walk in the night especially trying to enter the code in the dark, it made taking daughter to the toilet( very regularly ) a pain.

We braved a shower which we didn't look forward to due the dirtiness of the place but there was plenty of hot water and no tokens or money needed. We ordered a takeaway from Ropers after getting a leaflet and menu from reception and was told it would be here in half an hour only for it to arrive 1 and a half hours later, but the food was good and reasonably priced.

I think the site is aimed more at statics but if they cleaned toilets more and had toilets nearer to the pitches then this would be a brilliant place. We left a day before we were due to only because the weather had turned bad. Despite the toilets we would return as the location is great especially if the weather is good.

 Stayed here for a day and a night before we started the Coast to Coast walk. This campsite is not cheap however the standard of the site is very high. It's in a great location right on the beach.

The campsite is very well maintained and the toilet/shower block were spacious, warm and clean. Nice flat ground for pitching the tent. St Bees is a lovely coastal village with a nice sea-front cafe close to the campsite.

The campsite itself is only 5 min walk from the train station. Would definitely recommend this campsite - it is worth the money.

 This was our first outing in our new tent and I can safely say that we now have the camping bug. This site is excellent and has all the facilities you need. St Bees has an excellent beach only a stones throw away and, yes this is not a Spanish Stone, which has been known to travel many miles!

The site itself has plenty of space for camping and you never felt cramped even when it got busy.

Toilets and showers are clean and tidy with plenty of hot water.

Play park for kids is perfect, however with all the things to do in the area, we hardly used it.

All in all this site is A1 and in a great location to explore the lakes, without being in the tourist central sections around Windermere etc.

 I found the whole experience wonderful. The Pitch was situated next to some beautiful views of Fields and hills and you could also see the Sea.

There was Fresh drinking water available and the Toilets are only a short walk away.

The Beach is a Stones throw away and is a great attraction, surrounded by Hills and the Countryside it makes for a Surreal experience.

The Local Shop has plenty to offer and has a Cafe situated within. Make sure you pack what you need as all other amenities are a fair distance away.

On the whole this was a very pleasant and enjoyable experience and I will certainly return.

 Went to Seacote for the final days of our Winter tour as we left Scotland. Had a front pitch overlooking the beach with hook and water which was perfect. Beach is amazing and the tide is fast and bracing with the windy weather providing amazing surf!

Took both my dogs who ran absolutely riot around the beach and loved it. My five year old also loved the beach. The Beach Shop and cafe are awful, take all with you that you can. The Post Office in St Bees is ok [has wine, so hey what else is needed?] and is 1/2 a mile away. Did not eat at any of the pubs and never used the toilets as we were self sufficient.

If you want breathtaking views, amazing walks and a wonderful beach then this is the place for you.

Staff were also very friendly.

 I agree with the previous writer, a lot of 'dog waste', however it seemed as though the 'visitors' picked up, it was the locals that walked on and could not be bothered. There is a 'Dog Toilet' in the car park, brilliant idea, a small fenced area, sanded, so that dogs can 'pop' in, poop scoop provided too.So no excuse.
St Bees is a lovely place, plenty of walks within the area, superb views, beach and children's play area. The site itself seems to be more biased to statics, we stopped on the sea view hardstandings.Very close to each other, gravel standings rather muddy in places. Although each pitch has water tap and drain. Excellent view of the lifeboat station we spent many hours watching the comings and goings of the boat, and the very brave crew.
There is a gate onto the front from this area. Toilets were not the cleanest, and would certainly not cope, toilets had wash basin and toilet, 2 showers for ladies, make sure you keep clothes out of reach of spray.
Apart from that staff were very helpful and friendly, the views from the sea view pitches are second to none, and we did have a very relaxing break there. One day we may return!
