Disappointing in so many ways


barbarawN3301RZ,
We have just returned from a 4 night stay in our caravan. The owners were kind enough to allow us to check in an hour early when we asked. When we arrived the site looked lovely, very clean and tidy. I checked in with our 3 dogs, the owner asked what type of dogs we had and proceeded to tell me the dogs Must be on a lead within the site, she told me about some previous guests who let their dogs off the lead in the top field, I felt it was inappropriate to point out issues with previous guests, I was also offered poo bags I case I didn’t have any. We always carry poo bags and pick up after our dogs. When we had set up the van we took the dogs out for a short walk and to go to the toilet as they were excited being somewhere new. The owner seemed eager to get the dogs off the site Presumably so they didn’t go to the toilet onsite. Upon returning to the site the owners said hello, gave the boys a biscuit and asked for a photograph of the dogs and told us they would be quite an attraction. The site looked pretty and the grass in the centre of the site is superb, when we had a look around the site we realised how impractical it was. There are signs saying dogs must be kept on a lead which i fully expected and is standard across camp sites but in addition it says dogs must be exercised off site, to me this suggests they must be taken off site to go to the toilet at all times. When you go directly out of the site entrance the country road has a 30mph speed limit without pavements and soon increases to the national speed limit, it’s 5mph within the campsite, there is another sign just outside the campsite advising that poo bags are available in the information room and the bin for the poo is up the road, the road increases to the national speed limit and the bin provided which the campsite indicates is within this national speed limit area, you have to access this road without pavements to get to the bin and a farm access road which leads to the beach . There are no warnings about slowing down or children or pedestrians and quite frankly its dangerous. My brother was killed outright 4 years ago but a car at 37mph on a road just like the one outside proctor steads. It would be so much better if a gate was put in directly opposite the farm track road making it safer for guests There are no dog poo bins or general rubbish bins what-so ever on the site other than the one central rubbish point in a barn behind the toilet block, it’s rather grim and dusty and the bins have separate areas for recycling, we use a bin and bag in the caravan, I was therefore expected to either make several trips to the recycling point at the other end of the site or rummage through my rubbish bag at the bins,It appears to have been designed like this for the owners convenience rather than considering the guest. There is a lot of negative signage across the site, for example no balls, no frizbies, no drones, no running around the toilet block, walk dogs off site, no dogs at the water tap, no dogs at the toilet block yet its the only place on the actual site to put dog poo. This was our holiday with our family but we felt the rules / signs made it far less enjoyable than it should have been. Walking ( exercising) your dog around the site is quite a social thing speaking to other guests but from the notices it seemed frowned upon. As visitors to craster it would have been helpful to be given a flyer with how to get to embelton sands and craster without using the roads as there are no pavements, we did ask for directions but it would be good to offer a map to guests as signage is quite poor once you are walking. one day we walked to low newton along the beach and when we got back we asked the owner if we could use the hosepipe at the motor home point to gently hose down one of our dogs underneath, she was most reluctant so we rinsed him down with a jug at the caravan, Toilets /showers are clean but not heated. The chemical toilet area has no hand washing facility and you need to use the wash room at the other end of the block . In summary the site looks lovely but as dog owners we feel it’s not dog friendly for the points raised above. A bowl of water and a biscuit does not constitute dog friendly. The local pub has the most lovely beer garden but please beware the pub comes with a very feisty resident jack Russell who was off the lead the days we went, I was also short changed by £10 on two separate days when paying with. £20 notes There also seems very little on site for children to do. To us it doesn’t seem to accommodate either dogs or children well. It seems to be geared up for the convenience of the owners rather than the enjoyment of the guests.

Poor reception and facilities , very Agricultural


Dean B,
Spent the bank holiday on this site, Initially the reception was rude and not welcoming. The guard at the gate laying down orders before we even checked in. I have been on campsites for 30 years and never met someone so rude! The showers are 10 pence for 6 minutes of low pressure and poor quality shower. There is also no heating in the shower block so on cold morning it is like a fog once it gets warm. Free WiFi is not good and the comment from the staff was” it’s new and we all suffer the same” In general not a pleasant experience and although it says pet friendly it’s not really as all the signs say take your pets off site to excercise so you can’t even walk them round and have a friendly chat . The site is based around a old farm barn with the facilities inside it and that really sums the attitude up ! They need to come into the 21st century with customer service.

Very clean campsite!


jfam11, Sunderland, United Kingdom
A fantastic campsite in a great location for the Northumberland coast. The facilities are very clean and the owners are welcoming ("super nice" says my son). A short walk to the local pub. Dad, son and dog all had a great night's sleep! Would highly recommend.

Lovely site


PiggyMargaret, York, United Kingdom
This is a lovely, clean, well kept, welcoming caravan park. We chose Proctors Stead due to it's location and with no other information. It is close to a lovely welcoming pub with good reasonably priced food and a short walk from Craster. Perfectly located for sightseeing on the Northumberland coast. The site is so quiet, at night there is no noise apart from the occasional owl. There is a laundry on site, the showers and toilets are roomy and spotless, there are recycling and general waste bins as well as elsan and grey water disposal. The people in reception are so friendly and helpful. It is close to a well served bus stop. I loved it.

Worth a visit


Lesley B, Halifax, United Kingdom
We love this place . A great site for a base to visit all the amazing beaches and sights around Northumberland. The large field is beautifully kept . You don’t feel closed in . The water point etc is near to the toilet block so can be a walk . But I like this because you don’t have the constant sound of people pulling the water carries or the bins . Which is often the case on Caravan Club sites . It’s so peaceful we slept until mid morning. The owners are lovely and they have a smart new reception office with a fridge and a few groceries.
