Northumberland caravan holidays and holiday parks
Welcome to England’s northernmost county, occupying an area brimming with history. Northumberland holidays have peace and quiet at their heart, with the county also being the country’s most sparsely populated. It’s won awards for its credentials, being voted the best UK county to visit at the 2018 British Travel Awards. Guests head on a Northumberland caravan holiday as a base for adventure and exploration. You’ll find serene stretches of coastline all to yourself, tying in with some of the most unspoilt countryside you’ve ever seen.
Our two Northumberland holiday parks welcome guests with open arms. Berwick sits by the sea on the English-Scottish border and Haggerston Castle is home to the remnants of the structure itself. Fancy bringing your dog? Check out our dog friendly holidays to Northumberland.

Things to do in Northumberland
Northumberland National Park covers a quarter of the whole county, stretching from the Scottish border. Visit Kielder Water and Forest Park, the largest man-made lake in northern Europe. It's teeming with wildlife, outdoor activities and events. Or take a bit of a detour to Hadrian's Wall – this landmark of Roman Britain is truly legendary.
For film fans, it might well be obligatory to visit Alnwick Castle. Best known as Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter films, it also starred in big movies like Elizabeth and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, not to mention a guest role in TV's Downton Abbey. Then if that's whetted your appetite for stately homes, Bamburgh Castle and Berwick Barracks are waiting for you.

Frequently asked questions
The northernmost county in England, Northumberland borders Scotland to the north, marked by the remnants of Hadrian’s Wall which remains a huge tourist attraction today.
Northumberland has the largest number of protected night sky areas in the whole of Europe, making it a magnificent place to holiday and see the stars shining gloriously.
The county was previously known as Northumbria and in this time it was the largest independent kingdom in what is now Britain. The glory days were in the post-Roman period around 700 AD.
With windswept seas marrying with an untouched wild coast, Northumberland’s rural nature really does separate it from most other places in England. Beauty spots are often left for you and the family to enjoy in peace, giving the relatively small population of Northumbrians.
The area’s strategic importance is visible in the form of castles that dot the coastal landscape, from Alnwick to Lindisfarne. Hadrian’s Wall is the icing on the cake of this history-lovers paradise.
Being relatively far away from any of the UK’s biggest cities also gives Northumberland a unique regional identity that adds something extra to any time away from home here.
There’s no shortage of scenery on a Haven break in Northumberland, with our two holiday parks occupying some of the most spectacular places along the county’s coast. Haggerston Castle Holiday Park is built around the remnants of the castle itself and overlooks the enchanting Holy Island a mile or so off the shore. A 15-minute drive takes you to Berwick-upon-Tweed, England’s most northerly town. Between here and Hadrian’s Wall is our Berwick Holiday Park, another place where memories that last a lifetime are made.
