Covid-19

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement last night, we will not be re-opening the caravan park or cottages until further notice.

COVID-19 Response – Update to Businesses

The Government has been clear on the need not to undertake unnecessary travel and to socially distance in your own home. Northumberland Tourism fully supports the official advice to stay home and stay safe. We all have a responsibility – visitors, tourism businesses and residents – to heed government advice and help save lives.

We are asking people to postpone visiting Northumberland until a later date due to the implications that the influx of visitors would have on this rural county: the heightened risk of spreading the virus, the added pressure on public services and supermarkets, the disturbance to farmland and the risk to farmers who are in the middle of lambing season.

Anyone postponing their visit will find the county just as welcoming and just as staggering at a later date.

Anybody with concerns over their own health, or any questions about the Coronavirus, please use the NHS website. Regular updates from the UK Government can be found here.”

Please take care of yourselves and we hope to see our loyal customers again very soon.

Proctors Stead Campsite

Proctor’s Stead is a small, friendly, family run caravan park situated one mile from the sea and surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty. The park itself is a level, sheltered, well-kept green, catering for up to approx. 60 caravans and motorhomes.

Sorry, we no longer take tents, trailer tents or folding campers.

Caravan Park on the Northumberland Coast with facilities for caravans and motorhomes.

Facilities include showers, toilets, wifi, laundry room and electric hook-ups.

Please note that all arrivals are from 1pm to 7pm latest. No arrivals permitted after 7pm.

Our log cabin Reception is at the entrance to the site and is open all day (check opening times on display). You will book in here on arrival, which is from 1-7pm.

Have a look at the range of local information we have available to our visitors along with a very popular book exchange. Lindisfarne safe crossing times and bus timetables are the most requested information – we do have quite a good bus service for a rural area.

At Reception we sell a variety of dairy goods from Davidsons Dairy. There are some grocery staples just in case you’ve forgotten or run out of anything and also the breakfast basics. We stock delicious Doddington Dairy ice creams and a choice of soft drinks and water.

There is always someone on hand to suggest places to visit, walks to explore or recommend a good local pub for a meal or a quiet drink. We are happy to help so please call into Reception and have a look around……and if you have a dog, treat them to a free gravy bone!

Our facilities include regularly cleaned showers, toilets and washbasins with hot water; power points for shavers and hairdryers; dishwashing area. We also have a laundry area with a coin-operated washing machine and separate tumble dryer. Electric hook-ups available – 10 amps.

Dogs are very welcome on site. They are to be be kept on leads when on site and tethered to your pitch if not inside your caravan or motorhome. There is no designated dog walk area, however there are numerous walks and footpaths close to the park. All dogs should be exercised off-site. Owners are asked to be responsible and clean up after their pets when in/near the caravan park or the village.The Cottage Inn and The Jolly Fisherman both allow dogs into the bar areas.

The nearest village shop and post office is in Embleton about two miles away, where there is also the local garage (fuel sold here too). Craster is famous for its kippers and has a wonderful seasonal seafood restaurant, as well as a pub which over looks the sea. For those who do not wish to cook, The Cottage Inn is only a short stroll away. The Craster Restaurant (Robsons) is always worth a visit for fish and seafood (seasonal opening Easter- end Sept/Oct) and The Jolly Fisherman in Craster is very popular too. The Cottage Inn and The Jolly Fisherman both allow dogs into the bar areas.
