Visited Seton Sands in our tourer second week in October. Booked 7 nights and as usual with Haven at this time of year got a fantastic deal on a euro pitch (fully serviced with additional tv ariel point). Site is easy to find and well signposted. Lovely clean and tidy site overall, very typical of Haven which in my experience has been well kept, maintained and in many cases upgraded overall.

The touring area of the park is relatively new, all pitches are very level, spacious euro pitches, hardstanding for your caravan, gravel area for your awning, with many also having a generous grassy area at the side which would be sufficient to comfortably sit out On a sunny day.

Toilets and showers clean water pressure is excellent, shower cubicles are adequate if a wee bit on the small side. My only complaint was the temperature of the water in the shower was just a bit too hot for me.

Wardens lovely and friendly, you are offered help to site your van if required and they always had a cheery wave for you when out and about.

Small, children's play area at the touring site, much bigger one about a 3 min walk away.

Absolutely fantastic locations for dog owners, a great grassy walk for dogs (where they can be let off their leads) is immediately adjacent to the touring area, providing a good 50-60 minute walk opportunity. 10 minutes walk away is the lovely beach with great views and an alternative options for doggie walks or just enjoying the view.

The Boatie Blest is a typical Haven bar, food is a notch up from a Wetherspoons I'd say, staff friendly, service quick. Free wifi in the bar. Teenage son used the pool daily, played pool, enjoyed frittering away his money on the puggies, we didn't use the entertainment in the show bar so can't comment on that at all.

All in all one of our favourite Haven sites and we have already booked to go back next summer, so that must tell you something.

If you decide to go to North Berwick for the day, would recommend The Ship Inn both for food and doggie friendliness.

Reviewer: Pamelab21 4 reviews from this member

Just spent the September weekend (Glasgow local holiday) here for 3 nights and would not go back again when busy.

Kids were allowed to run across pitches, kick leather footballs and believe it or not play Frisbee (with other adults!) Normal 5mph rule not stuck to at all, watch the kids!) When mentioned to warden about balls and Frisbees on departure he already knew so why was nothing done??

Toilets are basically portakabins clad with wood to make them more attractive looking but clean and functional, used the family shower area following pool visits.

Entertainment a little lacking but it is a smaller park that the other Haven parks we have been to before.

Touring vans are the furthest away from the main entrance and entertainment, long walk but no noise!

Swimming pool could do with an overhaul, at busy times hard to find a changing room and don't use the lockers as you walk in as they keep your money, walk up the poolside past the changing room to find more lockers that refund your money (when visiting at least once a day with kids, it adds up!)No one seems to keep the changing room floor clean, dirty nappies stacked up in changing areas as no bins and freezing cold showers.

Very expensive Spar shop to stock up or Co op a long walk outside of park, turn left at exit.

Just returned from five sun drenched days and nights at this wonderful site, we paid 15 per night but spoke to a chap who is a member of the Motorcaravan club and he only paid 6 per night!. 1st these are brand new (opened may 2015) touring pitches and we are so glad haven have replicated many of there other site and blessed Seton sands with the euro electric pitches. These provide a hardstanding for caravan or motorhome a gravel area for awning and a monoblock area for your car, own water and and drainage and tv point. 2nd Stevie and Fiona are suited right down to the ground for the job of site wardens, they pounced on you on arrival and nothing was too much trouble.

The new touring area is right at the rear of the site which provides a great divide between the main complex but is still only a brisk 5 minute walk away.

The new toilet/shower block on first impressions looks like a eco friendly style type building but are only portacabins clad in wood panelling which are fantastic but long term don't know how well they will stand the test?

As for the site itself the Boatie blest restaurant has had a complete make over and is very modern and has a great feel about it. Food is great service was good and prices reasonable.

There is a small amusement arcade and soft play area for small kids.

The swimming pool was serviceable but could be next on the park list for a makeover.

The showbar and entertainment does exactly what it says on the tin its a Haven site after all and primarily geared up for kids.

We never explored the local area as it was just our second time away with our 7 month old son and cause we had such superb weather just decided to spend our time and money on site.

Well done haven! we will return 5*

The touring section is brand new and set apart from the rest of the park in a quiet location. If you go off season and avoid bank holiday weekends it is really cheap. We went a friday - sunday school week, It was only an extra 5 for an extra night which we did and left sunday evening for school next day.

KIDS - There are lots to do here for kids, great pool (free), small soft play (free) and lots of other activities you can pay for. My kids loved it. The touring section was getting a playpark built when we were there and it is great for their bikes and scooters.

DOGS - There is a great dog walking place next to the touring section and of course the beach which you can walk to or take the car.

SHOWERS/TOILETS - These are not too bad, not the best but ok.

FOOD - The restaurant is good and fairly priced. There is also a supermarket on sight.

I would recommend this park and we will be returning. Beware if you have an awning as its quite windy so make sure you have plenty of pegs!

Good points

Site is in a nice location, cheap deals available.

Touring warden was nice and helpful, very pleasant and done a litter pick throughout the day.

Bad points

Childrens entertainment is poor.

Toilet, showers and dish wash area need knocked down and rebuilt.

Touring field needs levelled and would be much better if it had hard standings for caravans.

Toilets were old and past it, they were cleaned but because of the age of they never looked it.

Complex could do with a good clean, but what haven doesn't!

What a lovely friendly site. Stayed off peak for 3 nights with my 2 dogs for 23 inc electric hook up

30 second walk to the toilet block and showers -these facilities were clean and never closed. Had an odd wiff but I think that's because of a beach location

15 second walk to limited shop -expect higher prices.

14 second walk to chippy super clean and modern - I think about 6. 40 for fish and chips.

16 second walk to launderette - didn't use.

7 second walk to drinking water.

9 second walk to eurobins

Receptionists were overworked and spoke with a well rehearsed speal. Site workers would not pass anyone without greeting me and smiling.

Beside a beach but that was not very pretty compared to what I am used to but let the dogs burn off energy at 5am!

More or less 20-30 minutes car travel to anywhere in Edinburgh due to location. Bus stop at site entrance.

Co-op and lidl 3-4 minute drive in car

Pitches are a bit sandy so would recommend proper pegs.

Visited this site on the first Bank Holiday of May, and I must say it has restored my faith in Haven. After booking in at reception, I was told that the touring co-ordinator would meet us on the field and show us our pitch. What a friendly bloke! Having a large family tent, I was expecting grumbles, but got quite the opposite. He said he had seen we were coming with a big tent so had reserved us a large pitch, and given that it was a Bank holiday, the pitch was huge, far bigger than we needed, which was a real luxury.

It was very windy when we pitched, but I cant blame Haven for that! The amount of windsurfers and kite surfers on the beach should have given it away! It was so bad our tent got damaged, and the touring guy even came back, and offered his help. Throughout our stay all of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We occasionally use Haven sites as a treat for our kids. And although smaller than others we've used, Seton Sands had everything they wanted. The pool was clean and well maintained, it had a small amusement area, a shop and take away on site, happy teenagers. And directly opposite the site was a beach, not the nicest Scotland has to offer, but ideal for walks with our dogs.

It's only a short drive into Edinburgh, Musselburgh and some lovely little villages. With an abundance of golf courses nearby.

In short, we all had a lovely time, were well impressed with the site, and will definitely be returning one day.

All pitches handy for the site facilities. The whole site is on the inland side of coast road. Take-away fast-food/chippy includes eat-in which can be useful. Onsite shop prices were not unexpectedly high. Public bus into Edinburgh has its terminus at the site and you can often get on the (waiting) bus rather than waiting outside at the bus stop. We quite enjoyed this site and will probably use it when going to this area/Edinburgh again. We were pleasantly surprised to enjoy Edinburgh so much (when not trying to drive through it).

Just back from 3 nights in Seton Sands.

A good quality site in which the touring site is overseen by Malcolm who seemed to be around all the time and able to help everyone. Our pitch was at the laundrette end of the touring ground which was lucky as the middle section got completely flooded. Malcolm did move those affected as soon as he could. The toilet block etc, was basic and clean enough. The floor was always muddy but what could you expect with people in and out with wellies on. It was cleaned regularly throughout the day. The kids loved the site and kids club and we'll definitely be returning there. We never left the site but local area looked good and plenty of choice in shopping. We had most of our food etc with us, but on site shop was well stocked with usual 'campsite' prices!

Although no curfew was imposed the site was very quiet at night, with most people enjoying FAMILY holidays!

Seaton Sands has an entertainment venue for kids which is excellent - even has a swimming pool. Staying in a caravan is fine. However their attention to the camping side is very poor - sunken camping field with poor drainage resulted in the flooding of our tent and the formation of a small pond near the toilet block last year. This year they have thrown strips of turf (badly) over the area that was flooded (the pond).

The shower block was grim as there is nowhere for you to put your clothes in the tiny cubicle. It looked so grubby I used the disabled shower - which was bigger but still no chair or place to hang clothes.

We stayed here last year and attended the Edinburgh Tattoo which was fantastic - the same thick cobwebs and dead spiders still adorn the ceiling in the toilet block.

Camping field needs work - proper drainage and re-turfing. Toilet/shower block needs gutting and redesigning so shower areas give somewhere to put your clothes and get dressed.
