I have spent a week here for the last 4 years (this year actually stayed for 2 weeks) and it is lovely. Very quiet with a mix of Park Resorts and private caravans. There are 3 sets of steps down to the very wide sweeping beech which has wild birds nesting some of the year and is lovely for walking the dog or playing on the beach or rock pools with the kids. Beware one set is very big and steep but just a short walk along the cliff path takes you to the other sets with less steps and less steep.
The site has quite a few areas, Sea View to Woodland. Ones at the back of the site border onto the railway line but it doesn't run too often.
There is a small (but a bit expensive) shop onsite for the essentials but there is a wide variety of supermarkets only 10 minutes drive into Hartlepool. Asda, Morissons, Tesco and a small Sainsburys.
There are some lovely pubs wihin about 10 minutes drive away which are good for food. Our favourite is the Tall Ships Ember Dining pub, but there are a few others that are worth a try. Most are great for kids.
The pool onsite is good and run by Park Resorts, as is the clubhouse which is pretty much what you can expect but is small. If you're staying with Park Resorts then you will get passes to access these. The Park Resorts caravans are exactly what you should expect and there are some lovely private caravans on site.
There is a nice playground for the kids and a basketball/football area. There are also loads of open spaces to play in, great for flying kites or just having a kick about with a ball.
Hartlepool is worth a visit and there are some lovely places within a short drive away, so the site is an ideal base to visit the North East.
Overall the site feels very safe, quiet and well looked after. We certainly will be back as a family.
