Why stay here ...

Our northernmost site in England, a stay at Berwick Seaview Club Site combines the spectacular scenery of Northumberland with visits across the border to Scotland. You can enjoy stunning views of the sea and busy town of Berwick from this hillside site, which also overlooks the river estuary. The caravan park is only a 30-minute walk into Berwick, with its Elizabethan ramparts, shops and diverse places of interest.

Driving along the quiet roads around Berwick Seaview Club Site, you will discover mile after mile of unspoilt and safe beaches, small castles, Peel towers and inspiring locations such as Holy and Farne islands. The caravan site is great for children too, with the clean golden sands and seaside resort of Spittal very nearby offering safe bathing and play facilities. The nearby Ford and Etal estate has a functioning steam train, many craft workshops and castle nurseries, adding up to a great day out for all the family. The nearby Goswick Golf Club is highly rated as one of the best links courses in the north of England.

The proximity of the A1 road also makes this site convenient for exploring north east England or south east Scotland.

A Little Confused!

I've titled this A Little Confused for good reason as I am exactly that after reading some of the other reviews on the site - so I have decided to be as honest as possible about our recent stay at Berwick Seaview. Firstly - the site is in Spittal, not Berwick but its as close as that makes no difference and the approach is from a road with speed retarders then up quite a steep driveway - longer units beware you may ground out. Check in - there are 4 wardens looking after the site and you may find that if you have a larger unit then the pitches available to you will have been partly allocated as the site is not one that you can drive around looking for one that has the best view, faces South for the sun, is not under a tree, doesn't have any neighbours etc - I thought this was a good idea and when you drive onto the site you realise just why. Very happy with our pitch on the 'upper tier' against the East Coast Main Line. Railway Noise - the site is quite long and narrow and is bordered by the ECML so expect trains on it - express trains - with a number of coaches. Also expect freight trains and engineering operations. The trains start early and finish late but honestly they are past in no time and the noise did not bother us in the slightest - in fact we knew what type of train was passing by the end of our stay from the sound. Seagulls - For some reason as the railway quietens down the local seagull population takes up residence and personally they need to be served an ASBO. I thought birds were quiet at night! These are most definitely not. The CAMC need the services of the SAS here (Seagull Assassination Squad) :) These birds will disturb the peace and are more of a pain than a passing HST. Facilities - can be either on your doorstep or a walk away - luck of the draw. Only one block and this would be my only real criticism of the site as it would benefit from a second block at busy times - that said you don't find yourself waiting long for your chosen ablution if you arrive at the same time as everyone else. Would also benefit from renovation at some point but its kept very clean and tidy given the size of site and its full occupancy. Wardens - oh dear CAMC ! Why can't every site have wardens like these? Brilliant, nothing too much trouble, very pleasant and assistive with anything they can assist with! I misplaced a charger for my camera - I asked if I ordered one could it be delivered to the site - no problem at all. In fact it even arrived at my pitch by the grasscutter express! Amazing! If people treat the wardens as fellow humans then I am sure that they will get a beneficial response. All in all a brilliant stay on a brilliant site with great wardens. We will be back to Berwick at some point as there is so much to see in the local area - you can even get a noisy train to Edinburgh for the day for around £19 return.

Disipointed

The site is located high up overlooking the sea, some of the pitches have great views , others no view at all. Unfortunately the site was full during our stay, and we ended up at the back of the site adjacent to the high speed railway line. Trains run from about 04.30am and make much noise. The site is long and thin, therefore all pitches will suffer from the train noise. Our pitch had reasonable views, but spoilt by the constant noise of the passing trains. One dated shower/toilet block, very clean but only one shower block for 98 caravan pitches and a number of tent pitches. Wardens very helpful good location to explore the surrounding area. Would I come back to this site ? No, only because of the train line which I feel should be mentioned in the site details.

Review of Seaview

We found Seaview a lovely site very helpful stewards & well looked after. The position of the site is great,lovely views out to sea & all three bridges in Berwick can be seen, great base for visiting loads of places. The town is 20-25 mins walk & has plenty of good local shops, pubs & eating places. Our stay was made even better by the superb weather we had, i doubt it has been that nice in the borders consistently for years. The best bar in town for real ale & atmosphere is a little micro pub called The Curfew. We will definitely return to Seaview.

Great site and great base for visiting the surrounding area.

Wardens though a bit officious on arrival were great and helped us out with a couple of minor problems during our stay. Site is ideally placed for visiting Berwick and other attractions in the area such as Lindisfarne, Banborough Castle and Angel of The North etc. Site is tidy and well maintained to a high standard as are all Club Sites in the main. Pitches on the upper tier have great sea views if you can get one. Some reviewers have complained about pitch sizes and stated this is not a site where you can easily sit outside the van and relax. I would disagree with that statement entirely. Also several complain about noise from the railway. If they don't like noise why book the site in the first place? Surely they would do as I do and any other competent person and check out the site before booking. Don't know if we will visit the area again but if we do we would certainly use this site again and recomment it to anyone.
