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.
