Why stay here ...
Old Hartley Club Site offers one of the best views on the network and is perched on a grassy cliff top overlooking the lighthouse on St Mary's Island. This island is a well-known local nature reserve with an abundant bird population of national importance and lovely walking trails where you can enjoy the unspoilt scenery. The traditional holiday resort of Whitley Bay is within easy reach of the caravan park and boasts a superb sandy beach and indoor leisure pool complex.

Another pleasant visit, nice pitch overlooking the sea but the usual slog up to the facilities, however didn't mind too much, it's such a good location! Pleased to see the broken tiles in the showers have been repaired. We had a nice Vietnamese meal at Omni in Whitley Bay, it was very busy early in the evening, luckily we'd booked a table. Also had a trip round Tynemouth, can remember when it was just fishing and shipping, now full of new homes and restaurants, very popular with everyone. Lots do all along this coast.
