Northumberland – An independent spirit

Described as ‘the Holiday Destination of the Year’ by BBC’s Countryfile Magazine Awards 2017 and with more than 30 miles of magnificent coastline and world class attractions, it’s very easy to see why.

Northumberland has more castles than any other county in England, many of which, including Warkworth, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Lindisfarne, stand guard along this beautiful coastline.

Top of your list will probably be a visit to Holy Island of Lindisfarne, before exploring the stunning beaches and picturesque fishing villages that are dotted along this unspoilt coastline and heading inland a little to enjoy Alnwick Castle and Gardens and Hadrian’s Wall within Northumbria National Park.

There is just so much to see and do in Northumberland and once you visit, will discover for yourself why people can’t wait to return to this special part of the world, time and time again.

Crazy golf and soft play.

Absolutely lovely campsite, great atmosphere, felt really welcomed. Amazing views and great distance from local tourist attractions, will definitely be returning soon!

The staff are always very friendly and go out of their way to help. My daughter loves Warren Mill and is always in the park playing before we start setting things up. It’s a lovely friendly site that I often recommend to people I know.

We absolutely love this place and will definitely return.

We stayed for 2 nights in a tent. Our children loved it! They loved the parks, the outdoor pools, football pitches and large grassed areas throughout to play games.

We hired your BBQ hut and what a fab idea it was! Kids loved it, it was a fab little experience.

We very much enjoyed the campsite. The kitchen area for wigwam users was a great touch and made a huge difference to our dining options. All public areas well maintained and clean.

A really great park, fab shower and amenity block. We are new to the motorhome scene and this site has strengthened our commitment to our new freedom Thank you for a great site!!!

Loved our holiday here. Was pretty much perfect for us with small children. Have already booked to return twice in the summer.

Having previously mainly stayed at Parkdean Caravan Parks on the south coast I was unsure what to expect, we were delighted with the caravan we stayed in, much better than previous holidays, so clean and spacious, and a great price. Really felt comfortable and safe, which as a single mum of 11 and 13 year old lads is always my concern, so thank you very much for a perfect holiday.

A great find, can’t recommend the park enough to others whether seasoned campers or first timers…

Even in October for our last stay we found the park to be in superb condition. A great tribute to the hard working park staff which was much appreciated. We look forward to returning in 2018.

Nice park in an excellent location for touring Northumberland. Good facilities and friendly staff.
