Why stay here ...

Peace and tranquillity reign at the Nunnykirk Club Site, making it a haven for wildlife and a bird watchers dream come true. Those who enjoy hill walking will find the Simonside Hills, located near to the caravan site, particularly splendid. They make for a place where you can breathe fresh air, enjoy the space and open countryside all around you, whilst shrugging off the troubles of the everyday world.

All is peace at Nunnykirk Club Site and yet this part of England has seen some of the hardest fought border battles in history. If evidence of this was needed, Hadrian's Wall can be found in the south of the county. This Roman site can be visited from the caravan park and will be an educational treat for youngsters, and keen walkers will be sure to want to experience the Hadrian's Wall path walk. A perfect antidote to modern life, you are sure to return from your break refreshed and revitalised.

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

A quiet peaceful location

My husband and I along with our sixteen year old daughter stayed here for four days. We arrived on site and within minutes saw a deer at the back of our pitch. There is a lovely walk alongside the site, although dogs do have to be kept on a lead. We saw chiff chaffs, hares and more deer. We visited a local National Trust property Cragside which has a lovey scenic drive which you can drive yourself around stopping at the numerous car parks to see what this huge property had to offer. We also took a Billy Shiels boat trip from Seahouses to the Farne Island to see puffins, terns seals and best of all we saw a pod of dolphins. We were leaving to travel to Edinburgh but we rather wish we'd stayed longer as there was so much to do. I'm sure we will be back

The Perfect Pitch

My Wife and I had two nights here on 23rd and 24th April, the site is spacious, Quiet, clean, well maintained, away from the hustle and bustle, close to good walks for all abilities and is a great location for other activities within the Northumberland area. Hadrians Wall isn’t too far away and the area is just rich with history. The Simonside hills and surrounding area are fantastic for wildlife, wild deer, Pheasant, woodpeckers, many birds of prey are visible throughout the stay. The site has no toilet or shower blocks, but for proper caravan and Motor homers, that’s the appeal, getting back to basics is a fantastic experience. Wild Campers like the basics, but, here there are grass pitches are well maintained and look neat, it’s not all basic though, each pitch has hook up and there is obviously the fresh water and waste disposal on site. There is 3 & 4 G, tv signal is poor, but for peace and quiet, you can’t beat it, for kids, trees, woodland, a nice stream running through the site provide adventure and fresh air, allowing imaginations to run wild. The site Wardens are Great, really helpful and super friendly. They have a wealth of knowledge about where to eat or places to visit, it made our trip memorable, we can’t wait to go back. I hope everyone visiting Nunnykirk CMC enjoys their experience like we did. Happy Camping
Motorhomer from South Yorkshire

Lovely site

A great location. Limited dog walking immediately off site, but a short drive to Simonside Forest opens up huge walking opportunities. The site is really well kept and the wardens are fine folk. Nearby Rothbury has a good co-op and also a Country Store for loading up on goog dog food. I will definitely return.

A real gem!

This was our first visit to Nunnykirk but definately won't be our last. Upon arrival staff were friendly and helpful and we pitched without any problems. Site and facilities were well looked after and maintained. The site was ideally located for either coastal or inland trips. Rothbury which is not far had great pubs/shops. My partner found the location ideal for cycling. A must for a tea time treat is The Dyke Neuk a local pub which was recommended by the warden and a couple of holidaymakers.
