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.

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.

Ok site

Site is in an ok location, not much at Spittal but a decent pub is within 5 minutes walking distance and Berwick is within a 10 minute drive. The site is on different levels, we stayed on the lower level with the tent area in front of us which was nice but we thought the upper levels looked a bit cramped and were glad we'd pitched where we did. This is not the site's fault in the least but the amount of dogs on site that were allowed to bark and have a go at other dogs was unbelievable, the owners should be fined for the noise made by their dogs, especially when they go to the dog walk area at 7.10am and their yappy little darlings are allowed to be as disturbing as they like without reprimand, soft owners makes for nuisance dogs!!! Lastly, the site office needs a thorough clean it stinks of stale sweat.

Comment from the Club:

Thank you for your review. Please be assured the office is cleaned twice daily and they work hard to maintain all of the site so members can have the best possible time at Berwick Seaview. With regards to the dogs, if you ever do have any concerns please speak to the site staff at the time who will do their utmost to assist and can speak to other members if needed.

delightful site

This was our first experience of a club site and was a long way from home, our arrival was delayed due to a breakdown, but we were welcomed when we eventually arrived, the pitch selection was a little confusing, but the site team were very helpful. The pitch was excellent, level with wonderful views out across the bay. The on site facilities, clean, well stocked, warm and good condition. The local information leaflets were very helpful, local advice was spot on and the site was a great base for further exploration, hiking and day trips to places like Cragside and Lindesfarne. The local beaches are spectacular, the walk out to the Lighthouse was interesting and we enjoyed exploring the town. There is a railway line very close - but to be honest, it was not intrusive or detracted from our visit, there was a short walk into the town, but plenty of good local shops as well as a selection of larger stores a short drive away. We will definitely make the long trip North again to visit as there is so much more to see on the general area.
