Beautiful campsite, with 2 relatively small fields for tents. Footpath to beach and within walking distance of local town and a pub. Pristine looking showers and toilets which were spotlessly clean when we were there. Kettle and toaster and freezer available in kitchen area. We didn't have children with us but there was a good wooden play area right by the fields which meant parents could keep an eye or ear out for their little ones. It was rainy when we were there so we walked to the station and visited Edinburgh and had fish and chips in Dunbar on the way back.

My granddaughter and I stayed here over the Easter weekend and although it was really cold there were a few hardy souls around ! This is the second time I have stayed here and it is a lovely wee site. We were on a hard standing pitch which is just as well because the rain set in and one by one the less hardy souls drifted away to find the sun ! ! The shower blocks and toilets were really clean but there was no hot water to wash your hands and the drier blew cold air. It would have been lovely to have been able to warm my hands up even just for a few moments. The site is a great base for exploring the area. The reception team are lovely and friendly and helpful. We will go back to Belhaven again. Hopefully when the sun is shining !

We stayed here for 2 nights mid August and must say we will definitely be back as it was great.

The weather has been rubbish this year and loads of rain so when we arrived on Friday to wet and slightly muddy ground to the front of the pitch we were not entirely surprised.

The only negative was that the access road had a very muddy patch on it that was so bad the site had laid 2 wooden boards over it to help cars etc - glad to say though that we had 2 days of brilliant sunshine and the ground had started to dry out.

Having said this the pitch for the tent was fine, wet grass but nice and flat and he grass looked healthy.

The toilets are brand new this year and I have to say they are the best I have ever seen on any campsite - standard gents and standard ladies were expected but there are also 6 individual shower rooms for 1 person and 6 individual shower/toilet rooms for 1 person complete with hairdryer. Absolute blush to not have to have a room to your self.

There were also laundry facilities and the wash up area was top notch too, indoors for comfort and the room included a microwave and kettle and toaster!

Staff were very friendly and helpful

There are 3 swing parks to amuse the kids, one of which was right across from our pitch so we could leave them happily playing without worrying.

We have now stayed at 3 out of the 4 Meadowhead sites and have not been disappointed but the toilets here were the best of all 3.

This looks to be a great site for families with kids. We weren't, so it wasn't quite as enjoyable, but the site itself was nice. Very close to the beach and a country park, and walking distance to Dunbar.

We had a grass tent pitch, no electric, which was very spacious given we were in a 2-man backpacking tent! Some of the enormous tents on other pitches looked to fill them though.

The layout is nice - a small field with pitches round the edge and an open area in the middle, which as I said, was great for the families with kids (who seemed to be part of a large group so were congregating in the middle and playing games). Getting to the toilet block was a bit of a gauntlet at times.

There were separate fields for EHU tents, and caravans/motorhomes.

The toilet/shower block looked new, and had an interesting layout - a block of toilets each for male and female, then all the showers were individual wetrooms, some with WC.

I didn't count how many there were but I didn't have a problem getting to a shower and the site was full.

I'd go again, but on a week night in school term time! Grumpy lady alert!

We visited for 2nd time this past w/e for 2 nights, our previous visit was last July 2015.


It is a great location, a very well run and clean campsite. The site is mainly for residential private homes but there is a nice touring area with ample grass or hard standing pitched, all level with electric. There is also a popular large camping with electric and separate camping without electric areas, which were full on the Sat night.

There are 6 rental large mobile homes plus three wooden pods or wigwams as they are called. The wigwams look good for a couple or small family who don't want to roughy it Ina tent but want time out in the country. They have a fantastic view/setting on the loch side.


- Compared with other touring sites, it is on the expensive side, there are other cheaper sites in the area.

- Toilet block for touring vans & campers are inadequate. I 100% endorse the comments made by other reviewers last year. The GOOD new is that a new block has been build. It was meant to be ready for 01-July, but they have had contractor issues and it was probably several weeks off completion and fitting out for use.

- new doors on existing toilet blocks often left open as closers not working, that means that passing people/kids can see people using the urinals, which can't meet planning/Health & Safety guidelines. There should be a double door or screen as far as I'm aware.

We look forward to our return in the future, to see the new facilities operational and the old ones demolished/re-built as on high occupancy w/e's 2xWC's and 2xShowers in the men's and 3 in the ladies is inadequate when you have a lot of campers.

In conclusion, congratulations to the staff from keeping the site so clean and well run and taking on board previous comments and building a new toilet & Shower block.

Reviewer: Dickiebird 17 reviews from this member

Good location with lots of open spaces and plenty for the younger children to do and explore. The site itself is reasonably well laid out with a section of owner statics with a few available for rent, and other sections for caravans, motorhomes and tents. Apart from the hard-standing pitches which were quite spacious, the other pitches were not well defined and this meant a very haphazard sprawl of caravans/tents with cars parked at random. There was a small section for wigwams and this looked quite inviting.

The town of Dunbar is within easy walking distance, either along the road or more interestingly along the coast. However, there is a regular bus service with a stop outside the site for those who do not want to walk or take their vehicle. There are several pubs, restaurants and fish and chip shops in the town itself to suit all tastes.

The receptionist was very welcoming and cheerful, and provided us with useful information.

Unfortunately, the biggest draw-back is the toilet/shower block. It is one of the poorest I've experienced and would benefit from being completely pulled down and rebuilt - totally inadequate for the number of pitches - 4 toilets and 2 showers per male/female - very, very old-fashioned, with nowhere to place toiletries for just washing/cleaning teeth. We had to queue each morning for a shower. I expected a much better standard of sanitary facilities for the price I paid each night for the pitch (29. 80).

Finally the door to the male toilet/shower section was held open by a brush with a long handle, causing an obstruction in an already cramped walk-way between the gents and ladies section, where shrubs etc overhung the wooden structure, whilst the ladies' section was propped open by the fire extinguisher - a breach of health and safety rules, I think.

We had a great weekend with the kids at this park.

KIDS - This park is laid out great for kids with two play areas and grassy areas for them to play on. We were sitting outside our caravan with books just watching the them play with all the other kids in the park. There is a little forest part they can play in also, my kids loved it here and want to go back. East Links family park is also a mile away, a great day out with the kids.

DOGS - It is only a few minutes walk to the beach with the dogs. Though you have to walk over a metal bridge to get to the sea. One of my retrievers decided she would prefer to swim across.

TOILETS/SHOWERS - Not the best we have seen but we arent too fussy, so it didn't bother us. It might bother others more.

FOOD - There are no facilities on sight. I am not sure what is available nearby. There is also no shop onsite for essentials but one about a mile away.

Overall we liked this park and will definitely return. I have to add though its not the cheapest as they charge per child, per dog and an awning. So for the price I paid for two nights I was expecting better toilet/shower facilities and a shop with essentials would have been good.

Beautiful site with very good facilities which were clean. 3-4 toilets and 2 showers in each facility. Big pitches and some have a picnic bench next to them. Lovely walk through the tent area to the beach which is stunning. Places to visit near Dunbar-North Berwick, Eyemouth, Cove and follow the road to Berwick upon tweed. Play areas for kids on site and an 'insect utopia' keeps the kids amused waiting to see if they see any ha ha! Booked to go again the end of may and hope the weather will be as good as last year.

Spent 3 nights on this site recently. Really friendly welcome at reception and even loaned me 2 wine glasses as I asked for directions to supermarket to buy some. A lovely touch.

Got onto our pitch (hard standing) no problem at all. Good sized pitch.

Apart from getting a freak hailstones shower the weather allowed us to get out and about. Site is real good for younger kids with plenty of grass space and 2 small play parks. My liitle one loved following me to do my water and toilet cassette duties on his bike. The openess of the site means that when the sun is out then the majority of the park gets well covered.

Would definitely recommend this site as a good base and also nice and quiet to chill out on.

Site would benefit greatly from bigger and more modern toilet block. 2 showers in each side not enough if site was busy. Fully serviced pitches would also be a useful addition. Toilets were spotlessly clean (as was rest of park) but are very outdated. Wouldnt stop me from returning though.

This site is owned by the same chain that runs Mortonhall, outside Edinburgh. We'd planned to stay 3 nights, but cut this back to 2 due to the high cost - we thought 31 pn for EHU & hardstand was too expensive (it's little cheaper on grass). We've willingly paid over 30 pn on other sites that provide an individual water pipe and grey water drainage to each stance, and have modern toilets. Here the one toilet block for 60 pitches - though clean enough, no complaint there - has a temporary 'portacabin' feel. It is very cramped for space, you have to juggle as there's no shelf to rest your wash pack on, the ladies have men's toilet seats, and there is no 'modesty cubicle' (sink in a private cubicle).

On the positive side, families with children seemed very happy as there's a good range of play equipment. Showers are free. Recycling is comprehensive. The motorhome service point was useful. If you arrive late, a list of available pitches is posted on the office door. For dog owners, there's a good run with bins and rabbits beside the site's wee loch, and ready access to the John Muir Way; turn right (east) if you want to walk to the sandy beach as you can't just hop over the high sea wall. For delicious local lunches, we recommend the tea room at the excellent Seaton Plant Nursery signposted in nearby East Linton. And the community-owned bakery in Dunbar is a prize winner.
