I was looking through the books trying to find our next site while my hubby was driving. According to our map there was a campsite at Leigh. We stopped at Leigh, a very pretty little bay/port. But no site here. We had passed a biggish site on the way from Warkworth to here, on the estuary but it didn't look that inviting. It must have been the one on the map. We got chatting to some people and I asked about Sandspit, they got quite enthused and said we would love it. (This had been my first choice before reading up on Leigh). We drove back for around 20 minutes and found Sandspit holiday park. Initially, we thought it looked a little scruffy, but we were able to get a pitch right on the waters edge, things were looking up. The old fashion facades on the buildings around the reception area were great fun, they also had 3 cats & 2 dogs, as an animal lover I was encouraged to stay, one cat we met, lovely. Although the pitches are quite close to one another (along the water front, anyway) this was not a problem, the outlook is just so lovely.There were ducks to feed and boats to watch and the lovely sound of the small waves shifting on the stones. We were almost in the water ourselves. The next morning, we took, for free, a couple of kayaks out, very safe water in the bay, great fun. I didn't use their facilities, (we had our own) but my hubby said they were ok .A very nice site to stay on if you can get by the water. Friendly host too. (A youngish dad)
Get by the water!
