    We are debating the same, Shotley or SYH.
    So far Shotley is winning because of the following:

    Loads of space for the kids to run around
    Beach
    Shipwreck does ice cream and slush puppies
    Food at the shipwreck is perfect for lunch for the kids
    The shipwreck serves Beer and doesn't have a membership fee
    The shipwreck has long opening hours and does decent coffee.
    We haven't had to wait too long to lock in and out when we've visited.
    All the staff seem very friendly and accomodating.

    I'll second that. I'm at Shotley and without exception, I've found all the staff there exceptionally helpful. Sometimes way beyond what may be required (I've had the chandlery opened at stupid o'clock when I've needed a bit and they didn't have one to hand in their 'box of bits')

    Short walk from SYH last night, one of the reasons I berth there ;-)

    One of our favourite walks as well. I must also put in a plug for the helpfulness of staff at SYH - my experience has always been good whether for berthing, laying up or chandlery. Last week my oil feed pipe burst just after I left the berth and the young guys in the workboat were alongside me in minutes to help me out very cheerfully.
