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.

Restful Site

Lovely site. Full when we visited but you wouldn't have guessed it. So peaceful and quiet. No children's play area but that didn't cause a problem when the grandkids paid a visit. Loved the nature reserve next door which was an added bonus. Any last minute essentials can be bought at the Londis shop located at the petrol station just down the road from the site. Not too far to travel for attractions such as Seahouses, Alnwick and Bamburgh Castles. Cragside, a NT property was also an interesting place to visit. Fantastic beach at Bamburgh, lovely clean sand. There isn't anywhere to eat out nearby the site. You have to travel 8 mile to the nearest pub. Such a peaceful and restful site and I would like to return to it again one day.

Worth the visit

Took my grandson to this site first time camping for him and first time to this site really thought it was great. We stayed for two nights wish it had been longer. The toilet/shower block was clean and tidy. Outside was the chalk board that enabled you to put on what animals etc you had seen, also there was a small herb garden that you could help your self to for your cooking I thought that was a great idea well done. The walks from the site were spot on and the nature reserve next to the site was great, the river walk was ideal. Plenty of areas to have a picnic so peaceful and quiet. the wardens do a fantastic job. will be taking my wife to this site I am sure she will love it, great place. my grandson and I visited Amble on the way home, well worth a visit , there is a market on the quay side each sunday

One of the best sites on the network!

We stayed at this site for three nights earlier in the month and wish we had stayed longer. The site is very well maintained and the facilities are spotless - very friendly and helpful wardens too. The walking from the site is excellent with the local Nature Reserve and walks in the Cheviots. There's lots of wildlife in the area and a chalk board by the facilities block so members can note what has been spotted - watch out for the huge hare! This is a lovely site and we reckon it's one of the best on the network - we will definitely return on our next trip to the north.
