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.

Fantastic Wardens

Tranquil site, immaculately kept set deep in the beautiful Northumberland countryside. I needed to stay here whilst attending t a poorly relative, no idea when I was going to arrive or even if I was going to arrive. The wardens took the situation in and then offered me absolute flexibility allowing me to prioritise my time, even helped me out with some much needed sustenance when I arrived stressed and worn out. Cannot thank the wardens enough. Oh, great location by the way.

TRANQUILLITY/PEACE

As usual met by the most friendly wardens ever!! Nothing is too much trouble. They never stop working. The site is immaculate, flowers and planters are beautiful. I love the herb garden where you can help yourself to various herbs for cooking. There may be no facilities but that's what makes this the most relaxing peaceful site ever. No morning rush to get to the showers, a quieter more peaceful way of caravanning we love it. Wildlife on your doorstep in abundance, deer, hare, pheasants, lots of birds. Earlier in the year we even heard a cuckoo. Rothbury is a 15 minute drive away where you can buy practically anything. This is the best site ever with the best wardens. But please don't tell anyone as we may not get booked!!!!!!

Relaxing break

Another enjoyable weekend staying at Nunnykirk. We received a warm and helpful welcome from the wardens, this site is a great bolt-hole to get away from things. This site may not have all the facilities of a big site, but with modern day caravans / motorhomes who needs it! We will certainly be back.😊

Not what we expected from. This organisation

We arrived days after the site had been totally flooded.we were told about this and given some 4 or 5 pitches that would be suitable.we paid and tried to pitch trying pitches but they were all to wet for a motorhome when we got to last pitch it was the worst of bunch somebody had obviously been stuck we thought they must have highlighted wrong number so pitched on adjacent pitch as this was vacant and had not been flooded. Only to be told 6 hours later we had to move onto the water logged pitch as we'd parked on a seasonal pitch we weren't told how to identify seasonal pitched and the office is closed from 12 till 5 you can't arrive until 12 so after 6 hours pitched last thing you need is to move I know the weather isn't their fault but 3 days parked and darent move the van because it was settling in sodden land unacceptable for them not to check pitches more thoroughly instead of just taking the money for a pre booked stay totally ruined a short break that e We managed to squeeze into work commitments don't go if it's been raining

A lucky find

This site came up when searching for late availability having learned that our pre-booked CL site had messed up our booking, and what a lucky find it was! A peaceful, quiet site threading through trees, fields and crossing the river Pont, with a useful shop and information booth. The warden was welcoming and helpful and the site beautifully maintained. On the edge of the Northumberland National Park and a few miles from Rothbury and Cragside, there's plenty to see whether you're walking, cycling or driving. Just one word of warning - contrary to the tempting photos posted on Facebook the nearest pub within walking distance (2 miles ) -The Gate - only serves food on certain days and if pre-ordered, so don't turn up there of an evening expecting to eat, as we did!
