Why stay here ...

Based on member feedback, work was completed in 2021 at River Breamish Club Campsite meaning the campsite now has 16 brand new Serviced Pitches and improvements made to a further 12 pitches, enabling better access to more pitches all year round.

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.

Thank you!

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
Thank you for the weeks break that we had recently. As it was our first outing for over a year since we have been away in the caravan, there were couple of snags which the temporary wardens helped overcome. There were a few vans queuing outside due to the 13:00 opening, this could be a problem for the folk who live up the road from the site.

Great site!

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
Returned here after a gap of around twenty years and found it a totally different site to the one we remember. It is now one of the best sites we have visited and with excellent facilities. I find it quite sad that people find time to write negative comments about the wardens. going about their duties to make our holiday better. In particular those that criticise the arrival situation. We arrived just before the arrival time to find a large queue but it was so well organised we had selected our pitch within minutes. What do people expect when 39 units are due on site as was the case last Sunday? We will return!!

One of The Best I Have Visited

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
I had a 4 night stop-over here to explore parts of the Northumberland coast. I loved it. The site felt calm, even though the Bank Holiday was approaching. Great size pitches, reasonable prices, and the facilities block was clean and I did actually quite like the air freshener thing that squirted at you when you entered! Yes, the geese were detectable, but seeing swarms ( is it a gaggle?) of them flying over the site in the evening was fascinating. For a closer view you just walk out of the site and almost straight into the Nature Reserve next door. The dog walk around the back of the site was fabulous too. I don't have a dog but did the walk several times down to the river and around the circuit. I could have stayed longer but had to get to Scotland. I would come back again. As for the queues at 1pm, that others have mentioned, well that is just part of this club and the system that they use. I must have just been lucky. No queue for me.

A delightful site

River Breamish Caravan Club Site
We have just returned to Wiltshire following a 10 day stay at this site. We received a warm welcome and were surprised to be able to drive round and pick our pitch which was very good. Overall the site is kept clean and tidy by the wardens who work hard to ensure all is well. No need for an alarm clock on this site as the local population of Greylag Geese from the neighbouring lake make sure you get a wake up call in the morning - unless it is raining and they seem to stay put. This site is well located for touring around Northumberland without the caravan and there are some lovely places to visit both near and far. There is a great independent pet shop in Alnwick should you need it. Very helpful and friendly staff (as we found everywhere). The only disappointments were; people not clearing up after their dogs, despite the provision of dog poo bins and the wardens putting adequate signage up asking owners to pick up after their dogs. We have two and managed so there are no excuses. Secondly peace and quiet was disturbed two or three occasions with one caravan watching films in their awning and another one whose inhabitants insisted on listening to their radio loudly with the door open. We also met some lovely people, some of whom had not travelled very far to be on the site. We are already planning to return next year to visit see more of what we missed :)
