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.

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.

Out of the way

First impression was such awareness of bird song, lovely walk next door in nature reserve. Good spacious pitches. Good facilities. 15min drive to Alnwick. We enjoyed the gardens and Castle. Nice café 15min walk from site and handy shop.

When the noisiest thing you hear are the birds!

This was our very first Caravan Club site visit - well that's set the bar high! River Breamish is a superb site, with friendly and very helpful Wardens (for us novices!). The site is so quiet and peaceful, just what we needed after a l-o-n-g journey north. The facilities were absolutely spotless. There are good on-lead dog walks, but due to nesting birds and adders in the undergrowth of the adjacent nature reserve, off-lead was not advisable. We loved the dog-park outside the service block and the trough of pick-your-own herbs is a lovely touch. Would highly recommend for an away from it all break and would definitely return here.

Lovely friendly site.

We stayed here for only one night on our way further North. We had a lovely warm welcome by the lady and gent that run the site. They were really nice and great with the kids. The kids got a welcome pack and did a little treasure hunt around the site and got some fantastic prizes. Another reviewer mentioned the loud screeching noise, we did hear it and there was a sign up stating it was from the boilers that are due to be replaced at the end of April 2019. The facilities and site were absolutely immaculate. It really was a lovely place and we will be back again to explore this part of the world in more detail.

Lovely site, but what's that noise?

Lovely site with fabulous facilities. Just home from a 4 night stay. Fabulous part of the country and fabulous site. But, there was a squeaky whistling noise for 80% of the day and night. Nearly drove us crazy. No idea what it is, tried to find out but couldn't, possibly the neighbouring farm or tarmac site. Thankfully we headed home before it became a major annoyance. Lovely site, sadly won't be returning as that noise is awful.
