Further to Astraea’s review I can not sing the praises of Seafield Caravan Park loud enough. We called at Seafield, at a moments notice on a Sunday afternoon they offered us the choice of two beautifully appointed caravans, so good that we have gone back for the last 5 years.
Anyone wanting to stay on a caravan site in Northumberland should try Seafield it is very highly
recommended and possibly one of the finest sites in Britain.

Okay, if you are thinking of maybe booking a stay at the Seafield Caravan Park in Seahouses, Northumberland....then DO IT...!!! Trust me, I just returned from a lovely 3 night stay there and you won't be disappointed. The caravans and park are immaculately clean and well presented to the highest standard.
Our caravan was situated in the Lapwing section and we stayed as a family of 2 adults and 2 children plus a pet doggy. We couldn't believe our eyes when we saw our abode for the next three nights, not some filthy old rust bucket like we had the nasty experience of being stuffed in at Haggerston Castle last time we visited Nothumberland....but an immaculate, shiny..HUGE...caravan, with a fenced in raised decking / verandah running along one side of it.
We went up the steps, through the gate, along the decking, past the sparkling clean chrome patio table and chairs.....unlocked the door....and...WOW...!!!!................ pale biscuit and soft blue interior furnishings lay infront of our goggling eyeballs. A deep piled pale carpet blue drapes and crisp white nets ( which were measured and fitted to perfection ), sumptuous seating, wood effect flooring and maple effect furniture icluding fully fitted kitchen and dining table and chairs greeted our first few minutes.
Once inside we excitedly gave the rest of the caravan a quick exploration, we couldn't wait to bring the bags in first ! Total cleanliness and luxury were the first things I thought of to describe it. The kitchen was so well equiped with a large cooker, grill and hob , tall family upright fridge with freezer at the bottom.....and it was a huge fridge, believe me. Microwave, sandwich toaster, four slice family regular toaster, every utensil you would need and the most lovely dinner set and glassware.
Fantastic flat screen TV, a good size too.......not some crummy postage stamp sized thing, it had a selection of Sky channels to keep everyone happy along with the usual Beeb and ITV ones. Dvd player, tastefully matching decorative pictures and wall art, vases, candles, fruit bowls all chosen to go with the same relaxing color scheme....I could go on for ever...there was even a food and water dish on a pet place mat for our pooch...!!!
The bedrooms were no less lovely. Pale green duvets and pillows,already made up mind you, not just a pile of bedding left for us to get on ourselves, Also I would like to add all the beds had thick, clean matress protectors on, the pillows had protectors and so did the duvets too. The matresses were really soft and comfortable, no nasty lumps and bumps and no boingy. poingy- springy noises coming from them every time you move. Fitted cupboards and wardrobes, mirrors and a choice of lighting in the double bed room...the two single twin bed rooms were as well presented.
Plenty of strong plastic coat hangers were in the wardrobes, there was a good quality hairdyer too, NOT the sort that you usually get in accomodation....yeh, you know what I mean, the ones that sound like a cat being throttled and take about 3 hours to dry your fringe. We had a remote controlled radio too, I could listen to John Humphries without getting out of bed ( Titter ye not, there's nowt wrong with Radio 4 )
We had two toilets.....Yay...!!!! Yes...two of them, one was in the same room as the shower, both had handbaisins.... Toilet rolls...quilted...gawd, we don't use those at home unless Makro have them on special offer....heheh....handtowels, complimentary shower gel, body lotion and hand cream.
The caravan was centrally heated and double-glazed throughout, Ted Moult would have a hard job finding any draughts in there I can tell you.
I really can't praise the quality of the caravan we stayed in enough. First and foremost I look for cleanliness,that is the most important thing to me, add in the luxury which was beyond what we expected along with the complimentary family sized cake, sugar, milk, loaf of bread and butter we found in the kitchen, what more could you ask for.
The park itself was so well laid out. It was done in such a way that you were not all packed in like sardines, or sandwiched up close to the next caravan, there was none of that here. Well cared for paths and grass, smooth, noisless surfaces for the cars to drive on, little ponds and streams with ducks ( and ducklings !!!! )....a safe and immaculate play area for the children with swings and slides etc, laundry facilities....and
of course the Ocean Club . A lovely indoor swimming pool, the gym and beauty treatments rooms along with the licensed coffee shop serving a good choice of light snacks finished the Park off perfectly.
Seahouses is a smashing little village, it lays right next to the best beach I have ever had the pleasure of walking along...and flying my kite on...try it, there's something about watching your kite hovering up above you whilst standing on the cleanest and most unpopulated hugest of beaches I have ever seen. To see Bamburgh Castle standing atop of the cliff just along the beach with the evening sun setting upon it just doesn't get any better.
Trust me , don't hesitate in booking a stay at Seafield Caravan Park, as owners ourselves of a holiday cottage we rent out, we know how important the main requirements of paying guests are.This place meets all those requirements and more besides.The staff are pleasant and obliging and very professional, all of them from the cleaning staff to the people in the Park reception. We will be returning for another stay and recommending it to others. I do hope anyone who reads this finds my review helpful.
