Camping in Northumberland last week of August -recommendations
Due to the boss winning the summer holiday decision this year and putting her foot down, we sadly won’t be camping for two weeks on the continent as we have for the last three years.
Sadly we’re off to Cannes this year for two weeks, apartment with pool…i’ll be sooooo bored !
So I get to choose the last week of August decision which we always go camping Northumberland has been mentioned ?
Near a beach or 20 mins drive is fine, we’d need elec. hookup for the camper van ( hair dryers)
its gonna take 2 days driving to get there(stop in Leeds bro and sister) or one long day as we’re 300 miles away down south and in a 32 year old camper van that doesn’t go over 60mph I’m not doing that distance in one day !

Elshalimo is right. Annstead Farm is a cracking site, 20 mins walk into Seahouses (you can go along the main road or via beach and footpath through golf course) or 20 mins along beach to Beadnell. Its at least 200 metres from site to beach.
My 29 year old camper gets there at least 2-3 times a year.
Avoid the main Beadnell site as it is always full and very windy, Annstead Is protected from the wind.
Email Jill at the farm, pretty cheap as well.Posted 12 months ago
Norfolk’s nice, are you not getting mixed up with that? Cornwall’s even better, the beaches are great & jammed with other kids so yours will have someone else to play with.Posted 12 months ago
Anyway, children aren’t legally allowed in Northumberland between May & October.
Cornwall’s lovely. Go there.frankconwaySubscriber
Just to add to Essel, Suffolk is lovely – warm and welcoming; North Yorkshire is pretty good but any place north – don’t bother; the natives don’t like visitors, the weather is variable, electric supply is a bit like north korea – it’s occasionally on but it’s usually off; food supplies come in by boat every fortnight but only if the weather is OK.
Best that you stay down south – where the sun shines and people don’t feel uncomfortable when they see money.
Northumberland? Over rated. Go once and you’ll never go again.Posted 12 months agorascalMember
I’ll no doubt get flamed for this, but I knew full well that within very few posts there’d be a ‘stay away from Northumberland, it’s shit’ type of response – multiple in this case.Posted 12 months ago
I know it’s all very tongue-in-cheek but oh so predictable too.
I went for the first time last summer and whilst I thought of it was very nice and I’m sure I’ll go back at some point, I wouldn’t rush to go back – horses for courses I suppose. It’s got shitholes like any other county (2 nights in Amble wasn’t my best idea ever). It’s big with lots of beaches and castles with very few people (which is your point) but IMHO the other ….umbria blows it away in terms of visual and topographic features. There. Said it….flame away!
