    There is a site in South Shields, Sandhaven caravan park,about 30m from the beach and 300m from our house and 600m from the town centre.

    The bus just outside runs to Sunderland, about 7 or 8 miles away, every 30 minutes, and it also stops very very close the the Stadium of Light. The site is very close to the town for pubs and restaurants. if you like a good curry, the choice of Indian restaurants is unbelievable, but there are also Italian, Chinese, Wetherspoons, and good grub pubs all within a few hundred metres.

    It's not the cheapest of sites, but a good location. There is another site on the South side of Shields, about 6 miles from Sunderland, Lizard Lane Caravan park, overlooking the coast, again on the Sunderland bus route on the coast road, and with a couple of pubs doing grub nearby.

    I think the site in the town by the beach is a bit expensive, the other one is cheaper. never stayed there as I now live here...

    Seaburn has a reputation
    it is in a rough area don`t leave any thing outside not fastened down
    i once saw a static van set on fire by three kids it went up like an inferno was a burnt shell in less then ten mins

    very scary to think if any one was in it
    i was amazed just how quick it went up :Sad:

    We were at Seaburn last year (and might go again this year). Well stewarded THS and no problems. Bus stop across the road with regular buses into the city which stop at Monkwearmouth so very close to the stadium.

    Temporary Holiday Site - it's what the C&CC call their longer rallies. You have to be a C&CC member to use them but at £8.50 a night (as the Seaburn one is) you can save your membership fee in 3 or 4 nights.

    THS Temporary holiday site, used by the Camping and Caravanning Club. The one at Seaburn is ok, right opposite the beach and next to a large Supermarket with a petrol station.
    Plenty of buses into town from here, just a short trip into Monkwearmouth.

    The place is used by a lot of clubs for rallies, it has been in use for a very long time.
