General

  • Cliffside site a short walk from the beach
  • Well-kept grounds set around a koi carp lake
  • Pool, adventure playground, bar, restaurant and takeaway

This one certainly does what it says on the tin: on cliffs beside an inlet full of the golden grainy stuff, Sandy Bay Holiday Park also has an impressive vista of the Northumberland coastline and well-kept grounds set around a lake full of koi carp.

It’s an easy walk to the beach, but if the sea water’s too chilly, you can wallow instead in the heated indoor pool, where you’ll also find a fun range of activities such as hydrodomes and snorkelling.

This is a lively site, ideal for families with its fun kids’ clubs for all ages, adventure playground, amusements and family-oriented entertainment in the beach showbar (expect competitions, games, live shows, music and dancing).

Sandy Bay Holiday Park also has a bar, restaurant and takeaway food, plus a shop and laundry room.

This site is a member of Parkdean Resorts group.

  • Liked: 

    Close to the sea on arrival the young site manager asked if I had been there before. I explained I'd never been in a caravan before 10 minutes later he had set up my complete caravan. I just watched and learned. Tried to give him a fiver and he just smiled and said not necessary and wouldn't take it. Fantastic service. Other people on the park very helpful too
    My young son loved the beach. 30 yards away

    Disliked: 

    Lack of toilet roll. Bring your own
    The clubhouse entertainment wasn't our thing to be honest.

    Site was ok catered for families, staff very friendly and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Amenities were not up to much, they were not very clean and they had a pass number to use before you could get in them and if you forgot IT you were left wanting. You would only associate a code for toilets if they were up to scratch and they were not.

This could be a lovely site, with glorious sea views. ... 28/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom lesley_d254235 Confirmed

    This could be a lovely site, with glorious sea views.
    However, caravans are parked to closely, potential fire risk.
    There were a lot of families, where the husband was going off to work, from the site.
    There appeared to be a few travelling families there.
    Children were allowed to run freely, many playing with footballs amongst the vans and there was 4 or 5 on hover boards flying all over, made it very dangerous.
    We had our van and car hit twice in half an hour with football.
    We are used to caravan club rules, children are not allowed to play with footballs in
    amongst caravans and there is strict ruling to speed limits whilst on sites.
    It certainly did not apply here. The site we were on last year, near Rockliffe was a far better site. SORRY WE PUT THIS IN THE WRONG BOX.
