Alan Rogers Review
Old Hartley Caravan and Motorhome Club site is perched on a grassy cliff top overlooking the lighthouse on St Mary's Island. This island is a well-known local nature reserve with an abundant bird population of national importance and lovely walking trails where you can enjoy the unspoilt scenery. The traditional holiday resort of Whitley Bay is within easy reach of the site and boasts a superb sandy beach and indoor leisure pool complex. The site has 59 hardstanding pitches all with 16 amp electricity.
Local transport is accessible from the site - the Metro and regular local buses will take you directly into the heart of Newcastle city centre, popular for the shopping in Eldon Square. A short journey across the River Tyne takes you to Gateshead, where you can discover the many attractions at the Metro Centre, Europe's largest indoor shopping centre which includes restaurants, cinemas and loads of entertainment facilities. The Blue Reef Aquarium is located just a few miles from the site. For dining, you might like to consider the pub outside the site entrance or the fish and chip shop just a short drive away.
