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.

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.

Strange location

We've stayed at many camp sites, but this was in a very strange location in the middle of an old housing estate. After saying that, many pitches had views of the sea and the wardens were helpful and friendly. The walk to the beach only took ten minutes, and whilst there were a couple of pubs within walking distance they looked as old and worn out as the housing estate. Our pitch was next to the railway line, so quite noisy. So ... jump in the car and you very quickly reach many beautiful places, including Holy Island and Lyndisfarne where you can spend a whole day exploring or sitting on the beach. You will also find many dog friendly pubs and restaurants close by - if you take the car.

Football stopover 2019

We spent one night here in July at the end of our three week summer trip. My team was playing against Berwick Rangers on the Tuesday night and I decided to go to the game. We had pitch 13 which has a clear view over Spittal and Berwick upon Tweed. It is one of the smaller non awning pitches on the site but our motorhome fitted fine for the one night. This is our fifth visit to this site and as a bit of a train buff I like the close access to the railway and I’ve been on sites which has been noisier than this site. We’ve always had helpful wardens at this site during our previous stays here. Access to the site can be tricky if you have a large unit to manoeuvre but the view is one of the best we’ve stayed at. My only opinion of the site is the toilet block could do with being upgraded to the standard of other sites we stayed at this year. The shower cubical are small and still have those white plastic stools instead of a fixed seating area within the cubical. The Wi-fi coverage is top class and the site in general good. Berwick has many interesting places to visit with an abundance of other options not that far away.

Euston on Tweed

We were disappointed with this site. It overlooks quite an industrial quay and the noise from the trains is regular and loud. Many of the pitches are very small and can be a fair walk from the one facilities block. Additionally the electric went off on two of our four nights, for a period of twelve hours on the second night, setting off an alarm in our van as the fridge was off for so long. The three grass pitches seemed to be a more generous size.
