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 Campsite 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 Campsite, 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.

Exceptional Service

River Breamish Club Campsite
A beautifully clean and well organised site but our praise will focus on the fantastic service we received from the wardens when we had a couple of worrying problems initially with our MH but then unfortunately,with our dog. Ian, the warden helped us to resolve our technical issue but then later and more worryingly our dog became very unwell and he quickly provided us with the information we needed to get her treated on an emergency basis by a local vet and she is now fully recovered.. He was so attentive and supportive during what was for us was a very stressful time, we were extremely grateful for his help and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this site and we will certainly return. Thanks again.

A Peaceful Corner.

River Breamish Club Campsite
This is a very spacious, level site with large individual pitches. It is also very quiet and peaceful, with plenty of visiting wild life. The serviced pitches are particularly good. All the facilities are excellent, and kept in pristine condition. We were there in a period of continual wind, but were surprised at the degree of shelter on the site. An excellent dog walk is accessed from the site, as are walks in the neighbourhood. There is a store at the nearby fuel station. A slight disadvantage of the site is that there are no cafes or pubs within easy walking distance. You can expect a warm and friendly welcome from the site staff who are committed to the maintenance of the site and to making sure you have a pleasurable break.

Peaceful bliss

River Breamish Club Campsite
Such a fabulous site, peace and quiet and in a most gorgeous position in the Breamish Valley. Lots and lots of lovely walks from the site. We loved it so much in March we booked to go back in May. Branton Lakes lie just behind the site for a nature filled level walk, or head along the river Breamish, climb the rolling hills for some gorgeous views of totally unspoilt countryside or walk along the old railway line. There is probably the best dog walk we have come across, which also forms a nature trail with bird hide over the lake and has access to the river. The site is very clean and tidy with a well resourced information area.and the staff so welcoming. We could not fault the facilities. We are already looking to return as soon as we can.

First visit

River Breamish Club Campsite
This is a lovely site, we had a warm welcome from staff . The site is very well looked after and like all caravan and motorhome club sites which we have visited was lovely and clean. Pitches are very spacious, and their is a great dog walk on site along the river, if you want to go a little further there is a longer walk around two lakes next to site. We did the circular walk to Ingram cafe (dog friendly)which was very scenic following the river, with the reward of coffee and cake sitting outside in the cafes courtyard. We will certainly return.

First visit to this superb site

River Breamish Club Campsite

What a peaceful and well maintained site, just returned from a 5 night stay in this fabulous area with this site being perfectly placed to visit the attractions in Northumberland. The wardens were always smiling, helpful and friendly ... a credit to the club. Some great walks and mountain bike routes straight out of the site. Definitely going to return for more.
