Excellent site within easy walking distance of St Mary's lighthouse and nearby sandy beach. Short stretch of pavement on the way to the beach was next to a busy road where many cars drove too fast, this would require care with children. Caravan was ok, clean, good hot water, shower and cooking facilities but not the most modern. Not too far to shops and restaurants at the other end of Whitely Bay. Would recommend a trip to Tynemouth which has very good beaches, cafes, shops and the usual seaside attractions. It is only 4 miles up the coast or 2 stops on the Metro.
Loved the location. Large site but nice and quiet. 2 mins walk to the beach. Visited Newcastle and metro centre via bus which was hassle free and cheap. The van was clean and homely. Great for the price. Site shop is well stocked for anything you may have forgotten. Owner was accommodating in relation to checking in and out. Great little break away.
Arrived at about two and we were warmly greeted by Linda, who showed us around this lovely caravan and handed us the key. She said we could contact her anytime if we had any problems as she was also on site. The caravan was tastefully decorated and tea, coffee and sugar was provided..as were the bedding, towels and loo rolls !
We shall definitely use the same caravan on our next trip to this lovely place.
The only downside i see for some families was that as this was a private let, we were not allowed in the Clubhouse for the entertainment and shows etc. This did not affect us, however, as we were out visiting places like Newcastle and Durham so were ready for bed when we eventually arrived back !
Do not hesitate to book this caravan...you will not be disappointed.
