It was great to meet everyone at the Yorkshire Motorhome and Campervan show last weekend in Harrogate. We had such a good…Read More
The schools are out, the sun is shining and what a great time to get away for a few days in the motorhome. Having being told off many a camper that North Berwick is one of the most awesome places in the UK to visit, we decided to check it out for ourselves and we weren’t disappointed one bit. What a fantastic little gem hidden away in East Lothian on the South shore of the Firth of Forth.
Travelling from Tynemouth, we were there in less than 2 hours door to door, the journey up is hassle free and the views are out of this world. We stayed on Tantalon campsite which is located about a mile to the east of North Berwick which accommodates tents, campers, motorhomes and statics. The site is pitched on the side of a hill overlooking the sea and is well equipped and had all of the necessary facilities for kids and adults which is reflected in the higher than average price tag. It was worth it however just for the sunset alone with fantastic views overlooking Bas Rock, North Berwick and even over into Firth of Forth into Fife. There is a Tesco within a stone’s throw of the campsite so food, drink and amenities are easily accessible.
The campsite has direct access to the beach on foot over a public right of way through one of the regions many stunning golf courses (the road off the A1 along the coast road is called Golfers Paradise) and North Berwick is town is about 15 minutes away. The town itself is full of bespoke shops, cafes, bars and restaurants which wouldn’t look out of place in a secluded Cornish village.
I even managed to spot an immaculate VW split screen camper while I was there.
We ate at Zitto Italian for lunch one day and The Ship Inn, both of which were excellent and very good value. If you want to see Bas Rock, there are boat trips which go every day however I must stress that you book these in advance as there was no availability for the three days we were there.
All in all, a lovely break in a fantastic unspoilt part of the UK, one which we will definitely go back to.
