Alan Rogers Review

Off a quiet lane between Embleton and Craster, this is a rural site with 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. This 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.

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.


Two very clean and well maintained toilet blocks have some washbasins in cubicles, hairdryers (20p) and a washroom for children with deep sinks. Fully equipped facility for disabled visitors in one block, a laundry in the other. Small shop including gas. Newspapers can be ordered. Fish and chip van twice a week. Well stocked tourist information room. Small play area. Torches are useful. Dog walk. WiFi (charged).

From A1 just north of Alnwick take B1340 or B6347 (further north) for Embleton. Site is signed in Embleton village. Avoid signs to Dunstanburgh Castle and follow those for Craster. Site is (south) on the left after 0.5 miles.
