The Rocking Horse Café and Gallery, Alnwick

The Rocking Horse Café and Gallery, Alnwick

This quirky café in Alnwick is set in the old dairy of a disused farm complex, so you can eat your delicious locally sourced fare whilst looking out over the rolling Northumberland landscape. The café rooms are kitted out with charmingly mismatched and homely furniture and adorned with aerial photographs of the county taken by the owner himself. The famed signature dish is the breakfast sandwich, served on a traditional Northumberland ‘stottie’ and best accompanied with a steaming mug of Holy Island coffee.

This top-rated Northumberland restaurant serves a wide range of cosy breakfast and lunch dishes to warm and rejuvenate you after your intrepid explorations. The signature dish is the Holy Island crab, brought straight from the shores to the 1st Class Food kitchens and is served up in hearty sandwiches or as dressed crab salad. Whatever you’re in the mood for, all the dishes here are freshly cooked or locally sourced, with options for gluten and dairy-free, and vegan diets to boot.

The Jolly Fisherman Inn, Alnwick

The Jolly Fisherman Inn, Alnwick

This restored old pub with a sea view is quintessential Northumberland fare. Locally sourced fish dishes are the star of the show and have earned The Jolly Fisherman quite the reputation - choose from the famous Craster Lobster, Lindisfarne Oysters, Jolly Crab Soup and much more besides. It’s not a seafood-only menu, though, with homemade pies, beef dripping chips and curries also rustled up to perfection. This is a popular haunt for locals and visitors alike, so booking in advance via the website is strongly recommended.

The Treehouse Restaurant, Alnwick Garden, Alnwick

The Treehouse Restaurant is just as magical as it sounds: a fairytale-esque arbour cosily nestled amongst the trees in the beautiful 12-acre grounds of Alnwick Garden. As you step inside this woodland den, you would be forgiven for believing that you have been transported to a fantasy realm, with twisting branches of finest woods adorning the walls and ceilings and twinkling fairy lights hanging from every beam. The menu is seasonally conscious and uses local ingredients for a thoroughly wholesome woodland experience.

Sunnyhills Deli and Bistro, Belford

This eclectic bistro is just a 10-minute drive south from our Haggerston Castle Holiday Park and is perfectly situated for a stop-off along the route to Bamburgh Castle. Sunnyhills is open 7 days a week, with breakfast, lunch and dinner menus all based around fresh and locally sourced ingredients. The star of the menu is undoubtedly the Sunnyhills pizza with a range of topping options, and both gluten free bases and vegan cheese available on request. There’s a children’s menu to boot for smaller appetites so satisfaction for every family member is guaranteed!

Lal Khazana Indian Restaurant & Bar, Alnwick
Curry, anyone?

From biryanis to tikkas, kormas to vindaloos, the menu has all your favourite Indian dishes and more. If you’re feeling experimental, why not ask the friendly and passionate staff about their recommendations from the chef’s specials. What’s more, if you’ve got a fussy eater in tow, you can even get some sneaky chicken nuggets to keep them happy, earning this a solid place amongst the best restaurants to eat in Northumberland.

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  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 Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to 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 Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, 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 2024 figures.

Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Sahara 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset 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.
