Head to Northumberland for a weekend getaway with the family. Wake up on the edge of Wooler Water ready to explore Northumberland’s stunning coastline. The campsite has all the facilities you could need for a short trip away. Tea time couldn’t be easier with a restaurant, bar and shop to cater for everyone’s taste. When you’re not out and about adventuring, there are plenty of on-site activities to keep the kids entertained. Get home after a day at the beach or a walk in the cheviots and make a splash in the heated indoor swimming pool, take on the monkey bars in the outdoor play area or win at the arcade and indoor games room.

Pick-up in the afternoon on the first day and drop-off in the morning on the last day (specific timings depend on the vehicle – see here). To extend your stay by adding more nights, please specify in your enquiry.
Wooler is only a half an hour drive inland from the Northumberland coastline, home to several of Britain’s blue flag beaches. Drive to Low Newton by the Sea and walk along the golden sandy beach to Embleton Bay, one of regions’ most pristine beaches dotted with white painted fishermen’s cottages, a village pub and great views of Dunstanburgh Castle. For a slightly livelier evening at the seaside head to Amble, known as the ‘friendliest port in the UK’. The harbourfront and marina are home to numerous seafood restaurants and cafes and quaint independent art shops.
Looking to add a touch of magic to your holiday? Head to Alnwick Castle for an afternoon exploring the castle that was once the set of Hogwarts. Take part in a Dragon Quest or broomstick flying lesson and watch a Jester show or medieval craft. Just around the corner from the castle is The Alnwick Garden with stunning landscaped gardens, a poison garden and a giant treehouse. Don’t forget to check out the brand-new fantasy themed adventure golf in the Forgotten Garden, keep an eye out for the mystical creatures along the way!
Cross the causeway from Beal and discover the historic treasures on Holy Island. Lindisfarne priory, created in the 11th century by Benedictine monks, is one of the main attractions on the island. Wander the ruins of the birthplace of the Lindisfarne Gospels and admire the mixture of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Lindisfarne Castle is also an iconic feature of the island. Originally built to protect England from a Scottish invasion, the Castle is now a favourite among visitors for its impressive views of the Northumberland coastline. Ferries are pretty irregular though, so if you’re planning on visiting the island, don’t forget to check the tide timetables before attempting your crossing!
Just a short drive from the campsite is the Cheviot Hills, one of the most popular hiking destinations in Northumberland. Take a picnic to Linhope Spout waterfall or return at night time to stargaze inside the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. If you’re looking for a longer, more unique route, check out Border Ridge and walk along the border between England and Scotland. These panoramic views can be enjoyed by hikers and bikers alike.
