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.

Tweed Estuary Views

This terraced site is strung along a hillside next to the East Coast main line railways on the opposite bank of the Tweed to Berwick. It is a long site and not particularly wide so units could seem less spaced out than other Club site. There is one toilet block of a good standard but it is a long way from some pitches. Interestingly there are two motorhome service points, both with open grids for waste water disposal. We were at the far end of the site and close to the railway. Without doubt there is noise from the railways but it is quite fleeting and the frequency of trains does not make it a constant annoyance and they don't seem to go on through the night which is a bonus. In a strange way I found the trains passing the site quite comforting, but then I am a bit of a train enthusiast! The views from the pitching areas of this site are quite stunning not only of the Estuary but also back towards Berwick especially when the evening sun glints of the buildings of the town. The B1 bus stops outside the site and takes you into Berwick. You can walk from the site, reception will give you details, into Berwick. You can also walk down to the Estuary at Spittal where you get views back at the town and the site. For food shopping there is an ASDA not far from the site and on the B1 bus route.

We'll be back

From others reviews of this site I was apprehensive. However we found the site to be in a great location. Some sloping pitches and roads were not a problem. Passing trains were no inconvenience being right next to the line apart from the odd freight train clanging past. Toilets were acceptable and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Berwick was great for walking round and we seen dolphins from the pier (take your binoculars) and a seal swimming around by the border cafe next to the lower bridge. Wish we could of stayed longer.

Great views!

I thought reviews saying 'on a housing estate' were a little off putting, but on arrival realised people just meant that the site is sandwiched between a village (the unglamorously named 'Spital', as in hoSpital apparently) and the main east coast railway line - last train is about 11pm, I didn't hear any during the night. There was an interesting old photo in the gents showing the site had been around for quite a few decades. The welcome from the warden was cheerful and comprehensive, and I ended up taking the pitch he recommended (pitch 13, a smaller one over looking the village and sea beyond). There is cardkey entry and exit and a comprehensive facility block. The disabled toilet included a shower, but the washing up area couldn't take my wife's mobility scooter. All gradients on site, and from the road up to the site, were good for the electric scooter but a manual wheelchair might need a bit of effort. One of the village pubs (5 or 10 mins walk) was visible from my pitch as the site overlooks Spital but was quiet while we were there. Asda, is 15mins walk (but take a little longer along the riverside) 5mins drive, and has a petrol station.  All the dogs (and cat!) I saw were on a lead. The only one not was a kid's small furry and he had that under tight control.  There are about 4 cul-de-sacs, each of which I saw had low level dead end signs, and the warden pointed each one out on the map he gave me when I checked in. I would imagine taking a car+caravan down any of these then needing to turn around would be tricky. I was given the option of choosing a pitch from the map, or having a look around first - any unit which is difficult to manoeuvre would be advised to explore on foot first! I would definitely return if I was once more in the area.

Berwick Seaview Review Aug 2019

Too many dogs on this site some without leads and many doing business on the site grass verges, even in camping area. Dogs owners seem to exceed dog less members nowadays. Site in good location and good views of the coast, but is a confusing site to drive around and it’s easy to go down a dead end road only to have to reverse a long way. Generally site is too small for no of outfits and members have got into trouble manoeuvring out of tricky situations. More notice needed where there is a dead end and no free pitches. Toilet facilities are ok but in need of update especially when compared with some equivalent commercial sites!

Odd Location

The approach to the site via a housing estate with a fair number of speed humps and the odd camber at the entrance to the site makes access tricky. However, the wardens we’re very friendly and helpful. The site is well kept and clean but can be noisy due to a busy train track running just behind the hedge. Lovely view of the town and harbour from some pitches.
