Alan Rogers Review

Dunstan Hill Camping & Caravanning Club site is located off a quiet lane between Embleton and Craster. This rural site has a tree belt to shelter it from the north wind and has access to the beach via a level footpath through the fields, across the golf course and past the ruins of Dunstanburgh Castle, which is just over a mile by car. With gravel access roads, the peaceful site has 150 level, well spaced pitches, 80 with 16A electricity. Reception is manned by very helpful managers and there is an area for outside parking and late arrivals at the entrance. This site is not suitable for large American motorhomes.

Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

This is a wonderful area to visit, with its unspoilt beaches and small fishing villages and the whole area is steeped in history. Nearby are Holy Island, the Farne Islands, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Walkworth and Alnwick castles (featured in many films including Macbeth and Harry Potter). The multimillion pound gardens project at Alnwick is well worth a visit.
