Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Next door to Seton Sands Holiday Park is a beachful of rock pools to explore, with a glorious vista of the Firth of Forth. For those who prefer unbroken stretches of golden sand, there are some excellent examples just minutes’ drive away.
Twelve miles from Seton Sands is the Scottish Seabird Centre, where visitors can take a seabird safari by boat, or get up close and personal with the local wildlife using the interactive cameras hidden amongst the colonies of nesting birds. You may see seals, dolphins or the occasional whale in addition to all the puffins and gannets.
The area is a golfer’s paradise, with loads of beautiful municipal courses, plus renowned championship links such as Royal Troon, Prestwick and Turnberry. Ramblers, meanwhile, converge on the beautiful Isle of Arran, where there are coastal and woodland paths, plus more arduous climbs such as Goat Fell. Drive across country to the port of Ardrossan to pick up a ferry.
Edinburgh is packed with things to see and do: the Castle, Holyrood House, the Royal Yacht Britannia, fantastic galleries and museums, cosy cafés and pubs, and superb shopping. Luckily it’s only 18 miles from Seton Sands, so you don’t need to try and cram it all into a single visit...
Heading south, just over the border is one of the UK’s best views: stately Bamburgh Castle, perched high on the rock above a wide sweep of golden sand and dunes. The nearby fishing village of Seahouses is the place to go for a boat trip to the Farne Islands, keeping your eyes peeled for seals and seabirds en route; on your return you can wander around the ancient streets and take in the sights and sounds of the harbour.
Finally, the fetching town of Alnwick is popular with history buffs and a wizard day out for Harry Potter fans: the medieval castle acted as the location for Hogwarts, and is a fascinating place to explore - there are guided tours and various interactive sessions, including broomstick training. Within the castle grounds is the contemporary Alnick Garden, with exciting cascades, a bamboo labyrinth and an enormous treehouse.
