Proctors stead is not far Craster town. Ian and Sally are the owners, very helpful.

Ina motorhome, 2 people, no pets for us but they were allowed with the usual rules for them. Awnings were allowed but no tents. Our pitch was big enough, hard standing.

The site is kept very clean and tidy. Toilet facilities were clean between 6 and 7 am, so no problem there as we were still sleeping. No daft noises waking us up.

Toilet facilities were very good are single cubicles as are the showers. What I liked about the showers were was the area where you strip off is to the side in the cubicle, no chance of your clothes getting wet. The shower has a curtain and was a power shower. Really nice and long enough for the 10p your pay for 6 mins, very reasonable.

Dishwashing area very good.

Separate washroom with enough sinks, hand wash and hand lotion.

Water taps at both ends of the amenities. Bins for your rubbish. Disposable of waste water and toilet good as well.

There was a little shop on site open 08. 30-7pm. Fridge with milk, bacon, sausages, cheese, other things and Alnwick butchers steak burgers, they were delicious. The freezer had pots of doddingtons ice cream -Alnwick ale flavour was very nice indeed, other ice cream lollies were available, didnít look any further into the freezer because the ice cream sold it for me. The shop also had crisps, jars of sauces, pasta, chocolate, really quite a collection of things.

Got a card when we checked in with some doís and doníts. Free WiFi which. Always helps. Good tv reception.

£22 a night. Checkin 1pm, check out 12 noon.

We have electric bikes so no walking for us but it does have Great coastal walks to Embleton, Craster and Alnmouth. Dunstable castle a walk to that. Entrance for adults £6. 70. But on the coastal path we could see the castle just fine.

Embleton has 2 pubs, the Grey Hen £6. 00 for 2 pints, food 12-3 and 6-9 pm. The Bluebell is also a Sambuca restaurant, special on £7. 95 for 3 courses 12-5 pm which we had with Peroni lager went down very well, and impressed.

Craster has a pub didnít go into it and a cafe, nice to cycle through but not much there for us.

You could cycle along to the Howick Art Exhibition, Not for us but lovely grounds it is in.

Pub the cottage inn was along the road about a 10-15 min walk. Live singer on, on a Saturday night.

First time we have been and will be going again, had such a fantastic time, lots of people stopped to say hello, very friendly people.

This was the second time we have been to Proctorís Stead and we were not disappointed.

The original pitch we were shown was a little bit too far away from the showers etc and the owners were very accommodating to let us move without any problems. The site is immaculate and we feel that criticisms of the toilet and shower block in other reviews are rather ď nit-pickingĒ and unfounded.

The site is quiet most likely due to the absence of tents. Although there is Wi-Fi, the signal is inconsistent and would probably benefit from a booster aerial.

Mobile phone signals are very poor but that isnít the fault of the site or itís owners. We really enjoyed our family weekend and we are positive we will return to this lovely site in the future.

The surrounding area gets top marks too.

Just re-visited since last year, I'm pleased to see that it's still going strong and they've added more pitches all with EHU.

Love this site, nearest pub is The Cottage Inn and I think it's a better pub than the Jolly's in Craster Village more choice for the kids to eat and not as expensive for food or drink, add to that a large lawned area with picnic tables at the rear and a playground for the little ones and dog friendly.

Easy walk to the castle and a good walk to Embleton beyond the castle.

This is a great site. Plenty of room, very clean and a good price. Lovely staff and owners. Dunstan burgh (English heritage) is a lovely walk along the coastal path.

There is a very popular pub in Craster selling a variety of seafood etc, and there is a lovely pub just a short stroll from the campsite.

We love the Northumberland coast and are regular visitors to Proctors Stead. A lovely site but which does not drain well after heavy rain. That said it is a case of surface water rather than soft ground and we have never had a problem.

The facilities might be described by some as quaint or old-fashioned, but always well-maintained and clean. The easy-to-use grey water drainage point for motorhomes is a welcome facility that many sites lack. Hot water at washing up sinks is somewhat erratic to say the least!

The perfect location for coastal walking and there is a stop on the regular Coast & Castles bus route just 10 minutes from the site. One pub 10 minutes from the site, and another about a mile away by the harbour and opposite Robson's smokehouse (kippers to die for).

A quiet site in a great location, we will be back.

Have just returned after having a lovely holiday here. We stayed several years ago and were just as pleased this time round. It is a family run site, who were all very friendly and helpful.

The site remains mainly grass pitches which is a pleasant change from a lot of sites nowadays which are resembling car parks more and more, with hardly any grass between the pitches.

Ok the toilets may be a bit dated but they were always clean [cleaned between 6 and 7 every morning] and were very spacious. Showers were 10p for 6 minutes which was more than enough time and plenty hot water. The local pub was just a 5 minute walk away, dog friendly and serving good food.

Lots to see and do in the surrounding area so this site is very central. Would return in a heartbeat.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a great time but we've stayed many times before so we knew it would be nice. The facilities, as usual, were always clean and well maintained.

The site is very level and is always kept in good condition. A few basic items are available to purchase at the farm house. The site is in a great location for exploring the coast by car, on foot or by bike. Plus it is nice and quiet in the evenings too.

Some of the earlier comments are a bit unkind; the reason that tents are no longer allowed is that the lovely chap who ran the site has passed away and now his elderly wife and family are running it to keep it open for the public. Some of us appreciate that gesture and wish them every success.

Visited here again, second time this year, following on from another review I agree the Elson disposal point is not fit for purpose very messy definitely needs updating.

I had not noticed the last time I was here but they no longer take tents or trailer tents and I think they've reduced the amount of caravans they take in, is this the beginning of the end for this little gem of a site.

Lovely mature site near Craster. The Cottage Inn is within walking distance (5 minutes) of the site and offers great food.

Craster itself is a bit further away. We drove to the car park outside Craster and walked in. Dunstanburgh Castle is a further 1. 5 mile walk along the coast. English Heritage charge to see the ruins.

Alnwick is a short drive away for the gardens and castle.

The site is well kept with the only criticism being that the toilet disposal point is also the waste water disposal point, so there are usually queues. It's very badly designed (channel in the concrete) and needs overhauled. With tents no longer allowed on this site, they should really do away with the dishwashing area and put in a proper hygenic elsan point.

Cant comment on the rest of the facilities as we used our own.

Great little site, toilets could do with updating but OK, nice walks to castle and some good pubs close at hand.

Only one gripe IRRESPONSIBLE dog owners who DO NOT keep their dogs on leads and allowed them to foul on main field and run around. Would come back
