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?

LeedsGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 4 or under)
The Lodge was cleaned to a high standard and was very nice to stay in.
The app for table service in the restaurant did not work and charged us for two rounds of drinks we did not receive. We have still not received our money back for these drinks.
The access to the beach is no good if you have a disability. Also the tide comes up to the main access by midday meaning if you have a disability you have to leave the beach before the tide comes in.
The site is very good and the staff were all welcoming and helpful.

NorfolkGBFamily (the eldest child is aged 5 - 14)
The park is clean and tidy and the caravan was very comfortable. There was good amenities on the site and the park literally backs onto the beach, which is lovely. The park is situated near the local town which has a big supermarket.

The downfall was booking the swimming on the park. I received an email two weeks before my holiday to book the activities but could only book for two days. When I contacted customer services they were no help and did not offer a solution. I also received no “what’s on” in my welcome pack and when trying to locate it on the website, I couldn’t find it.

The park is good for base to visit the area. There are lots of things to visit and they are not too far away.
