This was our first visit to this area and what a lovely place it is , nice walks along the cliff tops to St Mary’s island and lighthouse and a little further into Whitley bay. Everyone we met , both visitors and locals were very friendly and welcoming and the views from the site over the sea are great. We had a lovely time watching the activity on the sea including a cruise liner passing by on Friday night. The pub near the entrance is lovely with a good range of hand pulled local beers and the food looked nice although we didn’t try it. The only thing to be wary of is the approach road which runs in front of local houses and there are signs to ask you to be considerate towards residents whilst queueing. It’s a pity there is one resident who obviously doesn’t like it and was extremely loud mouthed and rude in his request for us to move slightly so he could get to his house. I didn’t react to his foul mouthed attitude, just brushed it off and got on with enjoying our holiday.
