Why stay here ...

River Breamish Club Site in Alnwick is set amid the Cheviot Hills, with excellent walking and cycling in the scenically beautiful surroundings to keep the active holiday maker happy. Walk from the caravan site into the delightful Breamish Valley where many remains from the Neolithic and Bronze Age, including hill forts and medieval villages can be seen. It is an easy walk into the quaint little village of Powburn.

The National Park Centre at Ingram is a short journey away from the River Breamish Club Site, which is open daily from Easter to September. Staff there will be more than happy to help you plan your stay, making sure you get the most out of this historic area. Ingram boasts a number of fine hillside walks - take a picnic along with you and enjoy the rolling green hills and countryside spread out before you. If you enjoy bird watching and nature, then be sure to visit the Branton Nature Reserve which has a bird hide and lake nearby and Farne Islands, off the Northumberland coast. Fly fishing is available at Chatton and Thrunton Long Crag, and course fishing can be enjoyed at Felton Fence Farm.

The stunning scenery and beaches of Northumberland, including the long sandy beaches and castle at Bamburgh, are on the doorstep. The location for the Harry Potter films, Alnwick Castle, is a must-see attraction. For a really unique experience, book a reservation to have dinner in the Castle's treetop restaurant. This caravan park is sure to offer something special for everyone in the family. 

A mobile fish and chip van visits this site, please ask the site staff for details.

A relaxing stay

The wardens were very friendly and were on the hands and knees picking weeds out the gravel areas instead of using weed killer. How good is this ! This was our first stay at this site and really enjoyed it. Didn't like the idea of no entry or exit barriers where anyone can just drive in. Got out for long walks but not many places to let dog off lead. Next visit planned for Powburn Show weekend.

Just perfect!

We have just returned from our first visit to River Breamish site, just the kind of place we love. There's a good dog walk on the site and a lovely walk to the nearby nature reserve, perfect for wildlife watchers , one day we counted 46 different birds in the area! The surrounding countryside is beautiful and a trip to one of the many beaches with miles of sands is a must, especially if you have a dog. We visited Alnmouth, a lovely quiet little place with tea rooms and cafes and a super beach. On Mondays a fish and chip van visits the site from 5 - 7 pm. Delicious! The site is well cared for by the friendly wardens, and the shower block is kept lovely and clean. We will definitely visit this super site again.

First time we have been here. Easy to reach, A1 & A697. No issues on approach road. Friendly wardens. Large pitches. Quiet site. Wildlife in abundance especially in the nature reserve next door. Twenty miles to the coast. Great places to visit. Cragside, Alnwick castle, Seahouses etc.

Relaxing site

Had a really relaxing quiet stay. We wanted to visit Alnwick castle with our motorhome and were concerned whether there were sufficient parking areas without height and length restrictions. So mentioned this to the reception warden and she very kindly telephoned the castle. Even with other residents coming into reception, nothing was too much trouble and she handled our enquiry very well. The site has a really nice dog walk with pleasant ponds and a stream. What made the difference was that the pathways were clear of any dog fouling. Really nice site.

Fantastic sites with fantastic wardens

Since our first visit in 2010, we try to be regular visitors to this site because it is one of the loveliest on the network, The wardens are as friendly and supportive as anywhere. All in all a perfect experience. Which is why following our first visit this year we hope to stay maybe another three times this year. The site is ideal for both a short break to relax or for a longer holiday. There are lovely quiet - albeit undulating - roads for cycling, whether for "serious" hard work or a more leisurely experience. And numerous offroad trails for walking and running, starting with the immediately adjacent and beautiful nature reserve (take a camera) or slightly further afield (but still starting from the site) along the river and into the hills which can be as strenuous as anyone would want for running. The site is perfectionally positioned on the edge of the national park, but also within quite easy reach of the Northumberland coast by car, or (in my case) by cycling. I can't recommend this site strongly enough.
