“Wonderful & So Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Just enjoyed a great holiday here, lucky enough to have a caravan with a fantastic sea view.
The caravan was superb and spotless throughout. This place is brilliant for dogs with a great beach for relaxing walks. If you are in search of peace and quite then this is a great place to stay.

We stayed here mid August, hubby, son and the dog, caravan E15, at the back of the park, but still had a sea view. We booked with Hoseasons. After reading some of the reviews about the caravan (cleanliness..or lack of it), I was dreading it. We needn't have worried.
Check in was very quick and smooth, we arrived 90 minutes early and we were given the keys straight away, along with a map of the site and where the caravan was pitched. There was a parking spot by the caravan. It was immaculate, had a large veranda to the front. Kitchen was well equipped, The van had central heating but the weather was good so didn't bother. Living area was cozy and had a two seater settee and a three seater which also changed to a double bed. Digital Tv, plenty channels.The only downside to the it was the size of the double bedroom, you only had a space about a foot wide round each side of the bed. We also could have done with a hoover, having a dog does mean hairs are shedded, would have been nice to hoover it up before we left!
The area is ideal for walking, beach is very pebbly at the top but lovely when the tide is out. There is a small shop and café by the car park entrance, sold the essentials, but Whitehaven has supermarkets. Seacote hotel is close by but we didn't bother going in as it was very busy with three coach loads of people staying there. We ate in the village, Manor House Hotel, which we can recommend. Egremont has a good chinese takeaway and pizza shop, which we also made use of.
We used Seacote as a base for exploring the Lake District. we had a lovely stay here and would use it again.

we booked as a last minute short break for 3 nights with our little grandaughters and dogs through hoseasons, the caravan was 3 bedroom, very modern and we thought they had given us the wrong one based on the fact we had dogs, but no it was right (E14). there wasnt much there, but we could take our dogs on the beach, which was 5 minutes from the caravan, there was a tea shop with attached shop which sold basic things like milk, bread etc. there was a hotel next to the shop which you could get a meal at which wasnt too bad. all in all it was great for us, would thoroughly reccommend, the only thing i would change is having the beds already made up, that would have helped me out greatly with 2 small babies.

It's the location that is great for this place but it is extremely windy to have a campsite. We were lucky enough not to have rain but our tent was absolutely battered by the wind, which I know is to be expected on the coast but I do think some thought should go into some sort of wind breaker for the camping part.

when we arrived there was only another 2 tents which quite surprised me (in August in the sunshine) as the setting is amazing and you can see and hear the sea from the field but when we were trying to pitch up it was clear to us why there were only 2 other tents. In the night you are kept awake by the tent being lashed all night by wind despite our car being at the side.

the facilities are okay but I do think the hotel bar could do with a bit of a revamp - was quite dirty.

Absolutely loved St Bees and we got the bus to Whitehaven and walked back along the cliff tops which was stunning but the lack of shelter to the field did let it down.

wouldnt stay here again and we didnt let it spoil our weekend but it was just tooooo windy.

After reading some of the reviews about this site, I must admit, I started to panic! However, my fears were not as needed as I thought they would be.
The campsite is not the poshest of the campsites we have been too in the past, however we had a pleasant stay.
Yes, the toilets/showers/elsan point/laundry block is a tad too far from the Touring/Tent Fields. But as long as you plan your visit there it just becomes part of your daily routine. The staff do attempt to keep the showers and toilet blocks clean, but when they have some clientele that appear to not want to help eep those facilities clean/rubbish free, then they are fighting a losing battle.
There was one touring pitch that when they left the campsite, their pitch was left full of rubbish. The staff soon cleaned this up ready for the next people staying.
The campsite is in the majority full of statics, some of these are privately owned and the owners were really friendly people.
The beach location is wonderful and we were lucky to have the best weather of the year so far. Only downside, again is to people visiting the beach who appear to have a lack of understanding of how rubbish bins work!
Nearest shops are in Whitehaven, so make sure you plan your shopping trips around that point. The beach shop is expensive and does not stock much. Nor does the General Store in the village.
Lots of lovely walks, and from the touring pitch you can watch the Coast to Coast Walkers setting off or completing their journey.
If you are like us and have dogs, quick note, most people on the beach let their dogs off the lead, so if your dog(s) find this stressful and do stay on their leads, take this into consideration when walking on the sands.
All in all, a pleasant stay and not as worrying as I thought it would be after all the bad reviews. But I just wish people would use bins that are provided more both on the campsite and on the beach as this place could be a little paradise if everyone, including the owners, just took a little bit more care with it!
