  • "Property listed as "accessible" but, whilst the property was in itself perfectly fine, the access was not and I feel the listing was very misleading."

    There is no direct vehicle access to this property and the nearest parking, if you can manage to park there, is some 50 metres away across predominently uneven grass. Totally unsuitable for wheelchairs so don't be mislead. This Holiday Park is poorly designed and does not cater adequetly for disabled users and the provision of direct vehicle access and hard standing next to every accomodation is essential.

  • "I booked this getaway at short notice to take my father-in-law on a respite break."

    I was delighted with the property location, offering stunning views of the coastline and allowing me to walk my dogs on the near deserted beach. I would certainly return!

    all issues should been checked or rectified before we arrived and so the property not being properly cleaned or maintained- this has had huge impact on our stay and we try to be out as much as possible due to the uncleanliness & irritating drone of noise from fridge - i am requesting a full refund as i have reported to you every day each time issue been found & we have wasted so much time contacting you or parkdean & vicky along with discomfort being in such dirty property it has ruined our time away from home which we paid good money for - this property should not be allowed to let on such poor standard the most basic need of any accommodation is it being clean & this is filthy along with inconvenience of not being able to properly control oven cook meals, having no heating or hot water or being able cook for hours, dog bags poo being left outside it’s disgusting-

  • "The location was perfect."

    We had a lovely week walking the dogs on the beech and sitting on the veranda just admiring the view and bird watching. We were very comfortable. We were surprised that there was no dishwasher. Thats why you score 3 in cleanliness. Following Covid I guess we are all on our guard with this sort of thing. The kitchen utensils were minimal but we made do. Some kitchen tongs and another non stick pan would be welcome. Unfortunately , the one time we needed the laundrette it was out of order but we found one in Blyth. All that aside me and my family had a wonderful week and feel very revived by the beautiful Northumberland coast. Thankyou. Debra

  • "Lovely caravan in a lovely situation."

    Very comfortable Great for dogs and children Great access for walks and the beach All round great find Just needed a bit more info to actually find it initially.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and comments. I appreciate you drawing attention to the issue of providing a bit more information to support initially to find Wansbeck View 2. I will liaise with Sykes to provide more detailed directions and advice on how to get directions from the site. I am so happy that you found the caravan lovely and comfortable and of course so well located. Happy New Year. Maria Property Owner

  • "The caravan is lovely, the setting is wonderful, the views fantastic."

    Unfortunately we had a few problems. We arrived on the 12th Nov, on visiting the Park Dean office the following day, we discovered the site was closing down on the 13th until March next year. So most of the facilities we believed to be included in the price had now been taken away from us. No swimming pool, no restaurant, no shop. We consider this misrepresentation. Also, maintenance work was taking place on the site, particularly on the caravan pitch next to ours. Noisy machines at 8.30am. tractors parked at the front of the caravan, blocking the view. On one occasion the road to the caravan was completly blocked by a cement mixer. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon. Monday we had been out all day, returning at 4pm. The heating was on, everything was fine. But by 6pm we noticed it was getting cold. The boiler was out. By process of elimination we discovered BOTH gas bottles were empty. The only contact number we had was Sykes Office in Chester, which obviously was closed by now. We did not have a contact number for the owner or the ParkDean Office, which was also closed. What do we do? We thought of a hotel for the night, but we had a dog with us, not many hotels take dogs. So we hunkered down and made the best of it with extra clothes and duvets. BUT IT WAS COLD! Early the following morning we found, close by, a Premier Inn which had a Cookhouse Restaurant attached to it. The Restaurant accepted dogs, although Premier Inn didn't. But we were able to get warm and enjoy a full breakfast. Whilst spending hours on the phone to Sykes. It became apparent that Skyes were unable to contact the owner. We drove back to the caravan with the intention of packing up and going home. But, we called in at the Park Dean Office to see what they could do. They refused my offer of money for a gas bottle, said they would install one straight away but would contact the owner. By the time I arrived back at the caravan, the owner was on the phone, asking if everything had been sorted out. I explained it was in the process but did ask why BOTH gas bottles were empty. She saId it was a breakdown in communication and offered me compensation. This has not been forthcoming. But why hadn't Sykes been able to contact her previously? We stayed and contined to have a wonderful holiday, but all the above was really unnecessary and could have been sorted out in minutes if not hours. Conclusion Sykes have serious communication promlems and are unable to quickly resolve a problem. Park Dean were wonderful and couldn't have done better.

  • "Top marks for cleanliness throughout the van and comfort of bed and sofas."

    The views from inside the van and from the deck are just awesome: up the estuary and seaward to Blyth. The ramp into van (instead of steps) was also appreciated as I have some mobility issues. Double bedroom space however was rather challenging for me though can clearly see the limited space on website photos so should have expected it. Didnt need the heating on much as the van gets sun most of the day so was lovely and cosy.... our cat Lulu laid there on the ottoman and soaked it up! Ideal plot on very nice site, easy access to walk the beach and for takeaways nearby. hope to be able to return. Many thanks to owner and Sykes for a great stay.

  • "Brilliant caravan, located in a lovely quiet spot on site, overlooking the estuary and fantastic views out to sea."

    The large secure decking is great for kids young and old to relax safely. The bedrooms are a little small but this didn’t impact our enjoyment. There is an entertainment programme on site but we only took advantage of the pool and restaurant, the pool was lovely but you have to book your sessions. The Restaurant served good ‘pub’ standard food. Would recommend this accommodation.

  • "Overall, a lovely caravan in a great location."

    We had a good view of the coast. What was needed was a map of the site as we struggled to find our caravan. Emailing a map out would have been good. We did need to rewash the cups as they were stained and one was cracked. It would have been good to have had dish cloths and some sort of vacuum cleaner- even just a push one for the carpet as the brush was unsuccessful.

Resting in a fantastic holiday park close to Newbiggin-By-The-Sea Northumberland, is this welcoming detached, single-storey holiday home of Wansbeck View 2.

A wonderful setting for a family of six, Wansbeck View 2 not only boasts access to a variety of on-site facilities.

Wansbeck View 2 has stunning views, and overlooks Sandy Beaches and Wansbeck Estuary, and is situated on Northumberland’s coast.

Discover handy parking on arrival, so you can park up and easily unload your luggage into the property, which is also owing to the ramp up to the decking.

Enter the holiday home to find a bright open-plan living space, filled with natural light from the floor-length windows, which also perfectly frame those countryside and sea views.

Move across the space to the kitchen, which is fitted with everything you need to cook up a feast for all to enjoy at the neighbouring dining table.

The sitting area is perfect for relaxing, with its TV being ideal for movie nights; the space also offers a sofa bed, for flexible sleeping arrangements.

When day turns to night, move to the rear of the property to find three lovely bedrooms, with two of these offering twin beds, and the latter featuring a double; the bedrooms share access to a handy shower room and a cloakroom.

In the morning, be sure to soak up those stunning, coastal views from the comfort of the wrap-around decking, before venturing into the park to discover what facilities it has to offer.

Sandy Bay Holiday Park offers everything you need for a self-catered holiday, from its on-site shop, launderette and bar/restaurant to its kids' activities, entertainment venue and indoor swimming pool; there is something for everyone here, without the need to go far!

Venture into Ashington to discover the wildlife-rich area of the Community Woodland, embark on a leisurely stroll through Queen Elizabeth II Country Park, or tour the renowned Woodhorn Museum.
