Super Sandy Bay

Soak up the stunning clifftop scenery and views across the beach from Sandy Bay Holiday Park in Ashington.

Enjoy family walks on the beach, accessible straight from the park; it’s the perfect spot for building sandcastles or exploring the rock pools. For even more beach fun; you’ll find the sandy beaches of Blyth and Whitley Bay nearby too.

This is a great location for a Northumberland caravan holiday with plenty of places to explore nearby. That’s if you can tear yourself away from the park which features lots to make your stay special from the heated indoor pool to the ornamental lake and adventure playground. Or why not consider caravan ownership and return to your very own holiday home time and again?

From arriving at the site I can only think of positives, the park is extremely well maintained, it is clean and tidy with specific areas to take your rubbish and recycling. There is easy access to the beach and to the Coastal Path. The one way system was a bit confusing at times but once you had been round it a couple of times it was easy. The caravan was spacious and had everything you would need - a true home from home. During our short stay we had used the site as a base to visit other areas and so had not used the onsite facilities such as a swimming pool and bar, but they did look inviting so maybe next time we will look to use them. The area in general I would highly recommend visiting, there are several attractions close by such as Woodhorn Mining Museum, Blyth, Newbiggin By The Sea. The beaches in the area are stunning, clean with easy access.
