General

  • Dog-friendly static caravan stays
  • Spectacular views of the fells and the Pennine hills
  • A short stroll to the local village and its inn

We’d be mightily chuffed if our village green had views like this Pennines park… near Consett in Co Durham is one to take the camera/paintbox to for its views of the local fells, Pennine hills and nature-heavy Derwent Reservoir.

The surrounding area is crammed too with all sorts of spectacular sights and it’s a short drive to nationally acclaimed attractions like Durham Cathedral and the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail to come, see and conquer.

Accommodation at is in a two-bedroom static caravan, available for weekly hols or short stays. It’s spaciously equipped with a kitchen, dining area and lounge, but if you don’t fancy the washing up, it’s a mere stroll to the ‘village’ in the site name, historic Edmundbyers with tasty treats at the Punchbowl Inn.

Handily for an area so filled with walkies, the caravan park is dog-friendly and your furry friend is welcome indoors for a teeny extra charge.

  • Liked: 

    lovely comfy, clean, well equipped caravan on beautifully maintained site with great views! Wardens were very helpful and welcoming. We were able to use the clubhouse and borrowed board games and played pool. It is literally a 5 minute stroll into the village with it's pub and shop. Stayed 4 nights for a short break but wished we could have stayed longer! Chickens, sheep, rabbits and hedgehogs abound and a playground for younger children. Would recommend to all!

    Disliked: 

    no microwaveable bowl or wooden spoons - a very minor niggle!

    We love the location of the site. Everyone is so friendly.
    It is so peaceful here and you feel as though you are living within the wildlife.

    The caravan suited all of our needs, comfortable and clean. It had plenty of space to relax in, with a good seating area outside.

    The Wardens are really helpful and friendly.

    The eggs from the site tasted delicious.

    Added bonus of Wi Fi great.

    Stayed here for a long weekend after visiting the site over a year ago. Very quiet and well kept with the wardens Debbie and Mark being so helpful. The hire caravan was spacious and spotlessly clean with the local pub only a short walk away . We have already booked to go back.

Local attractions

This is a gorgeous part of the world, with attractions and activities of all flavours all around including nature spotting, sailing and river cruising, country walks, heritage trips and shopping (essential).

The second biggest reservoir in the north-east, Derwent, is on Village Green’s doorstep and is a well-known wildlife haven, particularly for wildfowl; it’s been managed as a nature reserve since the 1960s and flutterers can spot many feathery species roosting and feeding here including greylag geese, mallard, tufted, pochard and goosander ducks, coots, moorhens and the occasional barnacle and white-fronted goose. Bring a picnic in summer and hike the path to the shores of the reservoir where there are benches to watch the birds (the path is closed in winter so the roosting birds aren’t disturbed).

You’ll also be able to sail on the reservoir or take in an event with the Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club, and fish for trout of up to 20lbs with the help of the folk at Northumbrian Water. Coarse fishing is additionally available from the reservoir’s south shore and dam wall, and the Derwent Reservoir fishery shop sells rods, tackle and Environment Agency fishing licenses.

Pick up Derwent Reservoir info and ideas at its visitor centre and take the easy two-mile walk to nearby Pow Hill Country Park, a mix of woodland, marshland, grass and heather and with plenty of picnic tables throughout for post-hike alfresco bites.

Several of the picnic areas are wheelchair accessible and there’s a wheelchair-friendly trail to Pow Hill from the south end of the Derwent Reservoir dam, and to Millshield picnic site from the dam wall’s north shore. The park also has an easy access trail from its north-west corner, leading to Facebook-worthy views across the reservoir towards Castleside and the Hownsgill Viaduct.

Urbanites will find quite a bit to do around here too – historic Durham is a quick drive away, Newcastle upon Tyne is within an hour, and the towns of Consett, Stanhope and Hexham are close by.

Take a trip to Hexham for its Tuesday and Saturday markets, dating back to the eighteenth century, its shopping streets and its medieval buildings overlooking the Tyne Valley; the seventh century Hexham Abbey is a bit of a must too. We’d also recommend heading up to Yarridge Heights in the Hexham hills for some racecourse meets and more spectacular views, spooking oneself at fourteenth century Hexham Gaol and taking in the museum and one of the many galleries.

There’s more marketeering – and street entertainment in summer – in Durham’s cobbled marketplace, and once you’ve finished with that and the cathedral, there’s a monthly farmers’ market to pick up some local produce; prize-winning floral displays for yet more photos, and riverbank walks within a few minutes of the city centre: look out for university rowers or take to the water yourself on a Prince Bishop river cruiser.

Must see

  • Prudhoe Castle (9.4 miles)
  • Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail (9.6 miles)
  • Gibside (10.8 miles)
