    Hi Angus. If you want to visit Northumberland I really would suggest Bamburgh, Alnwick, Druridge Bay. You would probably be better off joining one of the clubs, ie Caravan Club or Camping and Caravan Club since you can stay fairly cheaply at their sites and get benefits such as toilets, showers, wifi etc. You should research but this is a lovely part of the world. Beadnell Bay is lovely and the Armstrongs owned Bamburgh Castle. The Copper Kettle is a lovely cafe in Bamburgh but you also have good hotels if you want. Berwick upon Tweed is also good to visit. There you go. :BigGrin::BigGrin:

    Hi I know the golf club just along the road from the caravan club at Silverknowes in Edinburgh will allow you to stay over night if having a pint or a game.

    Proctors Stead is a lovely site. Not the most modern facilities, but very clean. Situated just outside Craster and Dunstanburgh Castle is within walking distance.

    If you're a member of the C&CC, there are Temporary Holiday Sites at Beadnell and Beal in August for £7 a night. No need to book - just turn up. :Smile:
