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 surrounding scenery and beaches can be enjoyed from many of our Northumberland campsites, 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.

Our First visit

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
This is a wonderful site. In a lovely area it is central to visiting both the beaches and attractions. The wardens are welcoming and very helpful. The only downside is that it is adjacent to an industrial complex.

First stay in Northumberland

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
What a lovely part of the country. The site is tucked away nicely and easily accessed. Its located centrally to most of the main places of interest. The wardens were very good and the site was spotless and all the facilities are excellent. We will be returning to the site as in the week we were there we just run out of time to see all the places we wanted to see.

2nd Stay - we will be back.

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
Great site with good dog walks. Easy drive to Alnwick (castle gardens and town centre). We also use this site to give access to numerous costal places like Bamburgh, Seahouses and many more - approx 30 min drive from the site. Site wardens are great. We will be back.

Great new service pitches

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
This site is up there with the best. We were staying on the new service pitches, which were spacious, flat and plenty of room around as was most of the site. So nice to see more green areas and not feeling like your in a car park. Facilities first class and kept spotless by the wardens as was the rest of the site. Brilliant Wifi and TV signal and a lovely walk next to the river and lakes adjoining the site. Even spotted two Adders around the corner from the site whilst walking to the next village. So many nice places to visit in the area but for us the best was Cragside, it's stunning at this time of year.

Great if you are looking for somewhere very peaceful away from the crowds.

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
The site is well run and spacious, plenty of green space around most the pitches which should be good for families. Highlights for us were: The location beside the River Breamish, there's a lovely natural space beside the river which our dog really enjoyed, sniffing round all the little paths in between banks of wild flowers and woodland. Really good for dog owners but also for families, lots for children to explore and places to play. The river was quite low after a dry spell in June when we visited and in that state it was just the thing for children mucking about. The bird song was amazing. Monday Fish and Chip van - possibly the best fish in batter that I have had in many years. The Ingram Cafe. The whole area is great for walking and picnics by the river and Ingram is at the heart of it. The cafe, open every day till 5pm, is just great, really good home baking and an interesting small deli selling local products. Not so good: Our only problem is that we like to cycle to visit local places and the site is a bit remote. Somewhere nearer the coast and the Coasts and Castles trail might be more interesting for cyclists with more places of interest within cycling distance.
