 This was our first visit to Haggerston in about 20 Years and we weren't disappointed. We were wary due to the Covid-19 restrictions but fair play to Haven, they were on the ball with hourly shower block cleans.

A lot of the facilities like pubs, entertainment etc. Weren't on but that didn't bother us at all. It was great to see kids all out having fun outdoors.

Site was clean and the supermarket well stocked but pricey as usual for these sites, chippy was minging I have to say.

I would certainly return.

Tip: For shopping, head to Berwick. Loads of shops at proper prices.

 This is our 3rd Visit to Hagerston this year. For us its an hours drive from home and we can be there checked in and everything setup within 2 hours. Which is great for leaving after work to get in an extra night.

Haggerston touring site is well placed far enough away to be quiet and close enough for a 5 min walk to the complex. However you need to drive to be able to get to Berwick and its amenities. There are buses however.

Site pitches are good with a hard standing and gravel for awning. There are points dropped for the fact you sometimes get fully serviced pitches and sometime ones without drainage. Also people have cottoned on to the fact they over state the caravan length and they get a bigger pitch.

Seen several sub 20ft vans on pitches for 25ft+ vans. As such my friends who have a 24ft van were crammed into a smallish pitch.

We will be back.

The complex with all it has to offer suits us and we enjoy the cheesy entertainment and bingo as well as sitting in the sports bar witching tv.

 Stayed for a week in July check in was fine really pleasant warden allocated us our pitch, which is just a slab of concrete with some type 2 at the side for your awning to go on.

Toilet blocks were cleaned daily by the warden who seems to have to do everything on site from booking people in showing them their pitches checking pitches everyday and cleaning toilets so they don't get a deep clean.

The week we were there 1 toilet block was out of commission for 5 days. Site is very big and clubs showbars pool etc are all a short walk from touring section.

My biggest complaint about Haggerston is the ammount of fibres floating about the area after the Duvets and pillows from the static caravans and lodges have been washed and dried in the laundrettes. This happens most days and can be very annoying.

 We got a great deal from Haven, around £9 per night for a longer stay. The welcome was friendly and the facilities are good. Pitches are level with EHU. Good facilities including Swimming pool, plenty for kids, a golf course, horse riding, entertainment, shop, bar, restaurant.

What letís it down are the showers and toilets. They are filthy and hardly cleaned. I noticed after the evening cleaning had been done, the floors were still filthy but they had put blue loo cleaner down the toilets.

During our stay it wasnít too busy, but when full it must be awful. Otherwise a good site, but badly let down on cleanliness.

Thereís loads to do in the area, with great walks and beaches.

 Booked here as we wanted a local site with in a couple hours. We paid £40 for 5 nights with awning and dog.

Firstly I have to agree with some of the previous reviews about pitch sizes, these were really small struggling to get van, awning and car on pitch. The hard standing for awning was horrible, large stones that we struggled to get rock pegs in.

Toilets and showers were excellent and very clean at all times even with it being so wet. One down side was were you got water and emptied waste water, this surrounded by grass between caravans and after heavy rain began to get muddy could do with a path to it.

Warden was really helpful with everything. Shop on site wasn't too badly priced, certainly seen a lot more expensive on other sites. Cant really comment on entertainment as we didn't go but we did have a meal at the mash and barrel (think that was the name) and must admit it was really nice and really not that badly priced for the kind of site your on.

My only gripe why do places use frozen chips ??? would I use again probably for the price.

 Great location. Beautiful area. Busy campsite with good amenities.

Kids would love this site.

I thought tourers placed too close together. Dirty shower blocks with unsupervised children having water fights in and out whilst trying to use the facilities.

That said if you take enough money the site has plenty for the kids but expensive.

 Brilliant holiday cannot praise this park enough very well organised booking Manager very helpful and friendly, all the information he gave us on arrival was fantastic he made us feel our holiday had just begun.

Reviewer: BRanger5104 12 reviews from this member

 I have been to Haggerston once before about 4 years ago and to be honest I had said then that I would never do another Haven site.

I relented as we wanted a short break quite local to home and thought that in the time since our last visit things must have changed, , , right?. Well as it happens we were so wrong. The whole place is. Well........ just wrong.

Now I don't mean any offence by what I am about to say next but if you like kids running around unsupervised, fruit machines and one arm bandits, elevated food prices and poor facilities then this is the place for all of that.

There is some good entertainment for the kids and the staff do try and put on a good show but the 'clubhouse' is always packed and you struggle to get a table. Even when you do eventually get sat down the volume from the PA is so loud you can't do anything but shout to be heard. Progress from your seating area to the bar is slow largely due to the carpet being so sticky, it was like this last time we were here so no change there.

If you do fancy eating out in the main complex you cannot get anywhere without first being 'channeled' past all of the arcade games and fruit machines, this is a typical Haven trick and I am surprised that given the amount of attention that gambling has had from the government that Haven are allowed to get away with this and don't have to segregate the area for over 18s only.

The touring pitches themselves are quite small and some have a slope making the fitting of awnings challenging. The gravelled area is also like a moonscape with large rocks and this is the cheap black stuff a lot of sites are using now probably because it is cheap but creates a lot of black dust that gets everywhere in your van.

It was October when we visited and so I think it would be fair to say I was expecting the site to be wet but the kids play area looked like a renactment of the Somme. The play area itself is not the worst I have seen but is sadly lacking in play equipment.

The toilet and shower blocked were filthy, again I know it was October and so some mess is to be expected but you think they would increase the cleaning times.

There is a small Spar which is well stocked and the prices are similar to most campsites. There are a lot of activities available such as horse riding, high ropes, go carts, row boats etc but as you would expect they are all expensive.

I am not judging and I am all for live and let live but there is also a large proportion of travellers on the touring site. They went off site for most of the day leaving their barking dogs tied to their tow hitches and didn't return till evening.

There is a lot to see and do in the area and there are probably better sites to use as a base to it from.

Would I recommend it. NO Would I come again. NO

 Overpriced and unpleasent.

My partner and I were hesitant about booking here because of the price but wanted a site with a pool. We arrived at 5. 30pm and the pool closed at 5. 45pm, would have been nice to know when booking.

The pitch was in poor condition, the conctrete was broken and surounded in mud. We decided to pay extra to extended our pitch from 10am to 4pm for £5 and use the pool. All the other activies cost extra, nothing under five pounds.

While on our way for some breakfast we saw the queue to get the bands for the pool, it was out the door. We gave up on Haggerston at this point and took the car to Seahouses.

Our pitch cost £41, it was more like £10 worth. Will never visit another Haven or similar site.
