Whether you are planning to rock up in your camper van, drive up to pitch a tent, or take the slightly easier option of staying in one of our glamping tents, Coast and Castles camping caters for anyone who wants to visit and stay on the beautiful Northumberland Coast.

We have basic facilities offering hot showers, flushing loos and a dish washing area. We have a small play area for kids, a popup bar and communal seating area, and we are a dog friendly site. We allow fires and BBQ's because that's what camping is all about!

We are continuously working hard improve our site whilst maintaining its quirky and laid-back style. Electric hookup points are now available on relevant pitches. Read more about the site development here.

In summer 2021 we opened Phase 1, a popup campsite/glampsite for 8 weeks, with camping pitches, glamping tents and grass campervan pitches available.

In 2022 we had our first full season and we continued to develop the site introducing hardstanding campervan pitches allowing awnings, and the introduction of electric hookups powered by a renewable solar hybrid generator.

We have flushing toilets and gas powered hot showers as well as a pot washing area, kids play area and a covered outdoor seating area and popup bar.

Our location

We're perfectly situated 1 mile from the quaint fishing village of Boulmer on the north Northumberland coast.

Boulmer has its own beach and wildlife haven and you can walk or cycle from here along St Oswald's way either north through stunning beaches and havens at Longhoughton and Howick, up to the harbour village of Craster and on to the magnificent Dunstanburgh castle, or go south through stunning beaches at Seaton Point, Alnmouth, Warkworth and on to the harbour town of Amble.

3 miles away lies the market town of Alnwick, with its world-class tourist attractions, The Alnwick Garden, Alnwick Castle, the film set for the Harry Potter movies, Barter Books, the largest second hand book store in Europe, and the Aln Valley Steam Railway.

We can't wait to welcome you to our 8 acre campsite so you can discover the beauty of the Northumberland coast and countryside for yourself.
