    We're planning a weekend away mid-april and we're wanting to stay somewhere near Holy Island - this site looks ideal in many respects but there is a very mixed set of reviews - anyone stayed there recently can advise? Any other suggestions would be welcome - we're planning on Friday night at one site - then a day touring taking in Holy Island, with a stop at a different site on the Saturday. Dog-friendly with a pub within walking distance would be ideal.

    We stayed there the back end of last year just before they closed. Very helpful wardens. It is just across the road from the dunes and plenty of pleasant walks nearby. There is a pub about 10 mins walk away. The site was fine although the toilet block was a bit dated dated and could do with a refurb. Part time shop and chippy nearby.
    Cheers.

    We haven't stayed here but passed it several times when staying at Seahouses a couple of years ago. We got the impression that it was too close to the road and therefore noisy and just looking at the tents/awnings, it was always very windy. Have you looked at Dunstan Hill instead, much quieter location and much better reviews.

    I agree with the prevous poster we have stayed at Dunstan Hill and it is preferable to Beadnell bay which has suffered the ravages of weather and neglect as well as it proximity to the road.

    Thanks to all. We have looked at Dunstan Hill but I believe it's a bit of a hike to the nearest pub? Also there's a note on the C & CC website "Please be aware that standard pitches on this campsite do not include an electric hook-up" Not necessarily a problem for just one night I know; and pitches with EHU are apparently available.

    Craster is also a good site and a pub in walking distance. We have also stayed at one near Berwick called Honey Pot something or other, lovely little site with beautiful views, steel bridge just down the lane which when you cross over you land in Scotland. If your interested in this one let me know and i will find out for sure what it is called.

    Annstead Farm is just a pleasant stroll through the dunes from Beadnell village (and its pubs). Set well back off the road with plenty of space between pitches. Stayed there for a few days last June - recommend it without hesitation. :Smile:
