Date of Visit: October 2023 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Nights stayed: 4 Travelling as:  Retired couple
Reviewer: GWTE 24 reviews from this member

 First time back to here after four and a half years. We have always enjoyed visiting the site and this time was no exception.

The site is a mixture of hard standings and grass pitches and there is a slight slope on each pitch so you may need chocks to get your unit level.

There a four water points, one CDP and two toilet/shower blocks. One of the blocks is closed for cleaning between 10.30 and 12.00, the other between 2.00 and 3.00.

The one bin area is situated next to the toilet/shower block at the bottom of the site. There is also a childrenís play area near this block.

The tv reception is good but our mobile signal was intermittent. The free wifi was very good at times and we were able to stream tv programmes. However at other times it was poor, although I could usually receive emails.

The site is handy for Craster, Dustanburgh castle, Newton by the Sea and Embleton. Itís not too far from Beadnell, Seahouses and Bamburgh. Holy Island is an excellent day trip but do check the tide times.

The site was excellent value for money as we paid less than £25 per night.

 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

There is a walk of about a mile from the site through woods and sand dunes to the glorious beach where you have spectacular views of Dunstanburgh castle.

We took the bus (which stops just outside the site) to Craster and had lunch at a pub overlooking the harbour.

We then walked back over the cliff and along the beach back to the site.

 A typical Camping and Caravan Club site - efficient and friendly welcome, sparkling facilities, good prices.

They have a new way of marking out pitches - marked squares which you are supposed to pitch in the middle of.

The weather this year meant that there was a big bare patch, not suitable for a small tent at all.

It took a little discussion to get agreement to pitch on the nice grass just behind. To be fair other sites have had bare soil too, once I was pitched it was fine.

Embleton has a lovely little village shop who do good coffee, and there's lots of interest around, inland as well as coastal.

Preston Pele Tower is well worth a visit.

Nights stayed: 6 Travelling as:  Mature couple
Reviewer: Mischka 84 reviews from this member

 We have just spent another enjoyable 6 days on this level and well-kept site. There are 2 good toilet and shower blocks which are kept spotless by the friendly staff.

There is an information room with lots of leaflets about the area as well as a book swap shelf and a freezer for ice packs. There was no site shop this visit, but apparently it will be back in 2024.

Plenty of good walking and cycling nearby plus the excellent beaches. It is a lovely walk from the site on footpaths down to the beach at Embleton. From there you can walk down to Craster or up to Low Newton.

The nearby golf club at Embleton is really handy if you are on the beach and fancy some refreshments. They are very welcoming to folk tramping sand in to buy ice creams etc, it is not a snooty golf club with a dress code. Plenty of outdoor seating available.

We also recommend the Jolly Fisherman in Craster, the Fishing Boat Inn at Boulmer and the Reel and Creel Seafood trailer in Bamburgh.

The village of Embleton now has a farm shop, which sold basics but also some quite posh stuff. The Dunstanburgh castle Hotel in Embleton offered takeaway fish and chips for £10 which was excellent. There is also a takeaway pizza oven nearby, called Embers, but we did not go there this visit.

 The campsite was wonderful. Easy walkable access to near by Embleton Bay and Craster.

The campsite staff were helpful and kept the campsite utilities clean.

Other campers were friendly and followed the rules of the site.

After spending 4 nights here, we did not want to leave and could have easily spent another week at this beautiful spot in Northumberland.

The only thing we would have liked would be for the reception to sell some local produce eg eggs and milk.

 Iíve an issue with the Club over its pricing. At £50 pn member price itís getting silly and pricing out working families. If the club wants to focus on its core base of largely financially pampered over 65s then say so.

But that aside this is a lovely site with some - not all - very friendly ďwardensĒ. A 2 mile walk to Embleton Bay and some lovely circular walks taking in Newton by the Sea.

The Greys Inn at Embleton is the best proper pub locally.

Itís top of our list for repeat visits as an area and there isnít a better site option locally as far as I know?

Reviewer: Yorkshiremum 4 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for a week in July.

Unfortunately, it rained most of the week but the pitch was well drained (central grass pitch) and never got muddy.

The site is in a quiet location not too far from Alnwick.

There is a bus stop right outside the site if you don't want to use the car and there is a path from the site down to the beach.

The site was well kept and has 2 toilet/shower blocks so never had to queue.

We have already booked to go again next spring.

 We have just spent another enjoyable 9 days on this level and well-kept site. There are 2 good toilet and shower blocks which are kept spotless by the friendly staff.

There is an information room with lots of leaflets about the area as well as a book swap shelf.

There was a freezer in there which would be handy for people who did not have an electric hook up.

Plenty of good walking and cycling nearby plus the excellent beaches. It is a lovely walk from the site on footpaths down to the beach at Embleton. From there you can walk down to Craster or up to Low Newton.

The nearby golf club at Embleton is really handy if you are on the beach and fancy some refreshments.

They are very welcoming to folk tramping sand in to buy ice creams etc, it is not a snooty golf club with a dress code. Plenty of outdoor seating available.
