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.

Beautiful and Peaceful Location

What a fantastic find. Located just off the Coldstream Road (A697), the site is set on the edge of the Northumberland National Park. The River Breamish runs adjacent to the site with a nature reserve backing on to the site; perfect for anyone interested in ornithology. We had a number of walks around the nature reserve which provides a gentle meander around the lakes within. Easy access to Alnwick and the Northumberland coast or up towards the Scottish Borders. Upon arrival, the staff were extremely welcoming and we were able to select our pitch of those available and confirm after setting up. Due to the remaining COVID restrictions (3-7 May ‘21) the showers were out of bounds; however the toilet blocks were spotlessly clean. As a write, there are site works in progress to provide fully serviced hard standing pitches although there are plenty of service points around the site. We will definitely return. NB. A fish and chip van visits the site on a Monday evening providing a very tasty meal.

Another wonderful stay

We have been coming to this site for many years and hopefully will continue to do so. The site has recently had some extra pitches added but this means more people can enjoy it. The new wardens gave us a lovely welcome and always had a cheerful smile throughout our stay. Facilities were spotless and all COVID measures were adhered to. On arrival the wardens had reserved a plot for us as our motorhome is a long one. We chose another but felt this was a kind gesture. Won’t be long before our next stay , hopefully.

Great Site

Great site; we stayed for one night to test out the new Motorhome and really liked the site, quiet, peaceful, lots of kids on the site but in no way noisy. Great walks both on the site and at the adjacent nature reserve. Facilities clean and well managed; very friendly Warden. Site looks to have had a lot of work done recently and future upgrades could be seen in progress. Close to Northumberland Coast and great for visiting Bamburgh, Holy Island, as well as Alnwick Castle for the Harry Potter fans. The petrol station at the end of the road sells LPG gas for anyone needing to refill their Gaslow bottles. We will certainly use this site again.

What a wonderful site

On arrival on the 12th April, we were greeted by very friendly wardens. The site has had several improvements and is in the process of getting some super pitches. It is well laid out with a very open feeling that you are in the countryside. After setting up our caravan, I discovered that our water pump had stopped working. Unable to solve the problem myself I asked the Wardens for advice, they could not have been more helpful. After trying various methods it was discovered that the pump had seized, so they gave me the details of the nearest caravan dealers. The following day a new pump was purchased, we then enjoyed a great weeks stay. Thanks again to the Wardens.
