Northumberland Holiday Parks
Holiday Homes - Caravans, Lodges, Glamping & Touring Parks
Northumberland is a county of surprises and it's no wonder that it is one of the best places in the country to find a holiday park close to the beach and surrounded by pristine countryside. In fact, holiday parks in Northumberland are rated some of the best in the country and include special country lodge parks and the ever popular glamping holiday parks.
With more than 30 miles of beaches, a scattering of tiny islands, hidden coves and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Northumberland coast is simply spectacular. Hailed as the jewels in Northumberland’s crown, iconic castles stand guard along the coast. Few sights compare to the view of Bamburgh Castle as the sun goes down, a vista regarded as as one of the best in Northumberland.
Featured Holiday Parks
Away from the coast is the Northumberland National Park which is the least populated National Park in the UK. With its clear air, clean waters and dark skies, it is also one of England's most tranquil locations. Covering more than 400 square miles, the park has many attractions such as the Cheviot Hillas, Kielder Water & Forest Park and Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. Hadrian's Wall - still intact in many places despite being nearly 2,000 years old, spans 73 miles from coast to coast and is a popular walking route.
Once the haunt of marauding Vikings 1300 years ago, nowadays Hexham proudly holds the title of England’s favourite market town – as voted by Country Life magazine.
The town centre here is filled with winding streets with Hexham Abbey, the keystone of Hexham’s assets, at its hub.
You’ll find market stalls every day of the week in Hexham’s ancient Shambles while the Market Place - sandwiched between the Abbey and the town’s 15th century Moot Hall - hosts a full market every Tuesday and Saturday.
Alnwick Castle dates back to around 1309 during the Norman period when it was used as a fortified castle. These days, it is a family home, tourist attraction and used for filming. Harry Potter was filmed here and you can book broom riding lessons. A trip to Alnwick Castle from your holiday park is not to be missed - a great day out for all the family.

Skim over the sands and causeway to Holy Island and prepare to enter another world. Lying just a few miles off the Northumberland Coast, Holy Island is cut off twice-daily from the rest of the world by fast-moving tides. Both an island and a picturesque village, Holy Island carries a wealth of history within its tidal walls and is perfect for walking with friends and families.
Rising from the sheer rock face at the tip of the island is Lindisfarne Castle. Built in 1550 as a fort to defend the harbour against attack from Scots and Norsemen, this is one of the top visitor attractions on the Northumberland coast.
