Five reasons to buy a static caravan in Northumberland
Northumberland is the definition of less equals more. As England’s most sparsely populated county, it lets the scenery do the talking, and the talking is simply idyllic. This place is the real deal when it comes to an escape from the hustle and bustle.
Untouched paradises stand in stark contrast to Northumberland’s turbulent past and strategic significance as the gateway to England from Scotland, and vice versa. The remnants of this era are on display throughout the region, best represented by Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Let’s take you through the reasons to buy a static caravan in Northumberland.
Amanda Wood, an owner at Haggerston Castle, sums up what's great about their holiday home: ''Haggerston Castle is a great site. The staff, owner facilities and discounts, location, and accessibility for our disabled son are all brilliant.''
1. The perfect place at our parks
There are two great Haven locations to set up a second home in Northumberland. Haggerston Castle Holiday Park boasts the remnants of its namesake on park and sits in the sort of countryside that makes Northumberland such a sought-after location. To the north, Berwick Holiday Park is just outside the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, England’s northernmost major settlement and a stone’s throw from the Scottish border.
2. Nothing too far away
As England’s most rural county, Northumberland has scenic sites in abundance, but this doesn’t mean there’s any let up on the necessities needed for an easy escape from the hustle and bustle.
Here’s what to expect:
On park mini markets
Berwick Sports and Leisure Centre, Tweedmouth
Great for shopping
Loaning Meadows Retail Park, Berwick-upon-Tweed
Berwick-upon-Tweed Train Station – direct services to Edinburgh, Newcastle and London
3. A piece of history at every corner
Northumberland’s strategically important place in history reveals itself all over the county. There are countless castles, fortifications and landmarks led by Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
These can be appreciated all-year round and are perfect visiting spots when you decide to host friends and family at your caravan. Walk along the River Tweed to follow the modern England-Scotland border, with so much to see and discover along the way.
4. Stunning surroundings that never get old
There’s always something to be discovered in Northumberland, which makes it a prime place to own a caravan of your own. Huge, undeveloped and not talked about too much, the county really is full of hidden gems that will reveal themselves to you when you return to the region as and when you please.
Sites like the mysterious Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the route to which reveals itself at low tide, makes for a great day out off park. The sanctuary that is the Farne Islands is another place off the beaten track, accessible by boat from Seahouses and proof that it isn’t just mainland Northumberland that’s full of delights.
5. There's always something on
Places like Maltings Berwick are proof that Northumberland is more than just a temporary holiday destination.
The cinema and theatre hosts productions throughout the year, and with a bowls club and tennis club joining the activities available in England’s northernmost town, you’ll never be short of things to do regardless of the time of year.

The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance. “Make no site fee payments when using Let2own until 2030” is applicable to new customer purchases of new Atlas Chorus 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2own contract. It is not applicable to part-exchanges or private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion. It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Chorus 3 Bed holiday home for 15 weeks.
An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2own until 2030” operates under Let2own is the purchase of an Atlas Chorus 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £642.50 and monthly letting income of £759.25. The monthly difference equates to £116.75, which will be credited to the owner's account. Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2023 figures.
Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Chorus 3 Bed indicate that under Let2own it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
