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.

No peace and quiet

Lovely site as one would expect with friendly helpful staff. However we were unfortunate having a pitch on the East side of the site. Each weekday, from 7.45 am until about 4pm was the constant repetitive beeping sound of plant reversing at the recycling centre a few hundred yards away. No peace nor quiet until the end of the working day. We will not return.

You can't sanitize your hand with a notice saying wash your hands.

Firstly I want to make it clear the wardens and site are great. But the CMHC have put the members at risk, every CL we have used this year 8 in all have provided sanitizer at EVERY tap and service point, we arrive a a club site to find the only sanitizer is on doors,NOTHING on service points apart from a sign telling you how to keep safe and wash your hands. Over a 100 + people on sit is a high risk Covid 19 , I was under the belief the Club was doing every thing it could to protect it's member but it doesn't seem it's doing the basics.. As Northumberland is almost in lock down It's now time for the club to do it's bit before all club sites get locked down again.

A location that is hard to beat

A wonderful site for walking local paths hills and valleys. Well drained and well kept pitches. Facilities are spotless too....although we didn't like the unsegregated que system so used our on board facilities. The only other issue to mention is the site is isolated if you require shopping or leisure attractions you need transportation.....OH....and lots of dogs too....

Great few days

Stayed here for 2 nights really peaceful and great location, we sometimes have our grand children with us but at this we did not, had we done so I think it would have been slightly remote for the kids however for walking fishing sight seeing it was great. Staff on site were really good very welcoming explaining all the current covid procedures, nothing was too much trouble.

A perfect end to lockdown

A six night stay at River Breamish was the perfect end to lockdown. Having never been to the Northeast before we didn’t really know what to expect, it was also our first stay on a club site, having previously used CL’s and affiliated sites. We arrived fully expecting to use our own facilities on the van, what a surprise to find the site facilities open with a simple ‘band’ system in place to ensure social distancing. The site is ideally located to explore the region, a short drive to the coast or the hills, over the Boarder into Scotland or the supermarket in Alnwick. It’s also a very good base for walking or cycling from the site, check out the river Breamish valley and the tea room at Ingram. The site is very clean, well maintained and very quiet,
