A pebble’s propulsion from golden sand dunes, with a perfect view of the blue-green ocean as far as the eye can see... Come and discover the splendour of the little-known Durham coastline at Crimdon Dene Holiday Park.
The smart facilities include an indoor pool with Jacuzzi, all-weather sports centre, and a spacious bar and restaurant.
As a family park, Crimdon Dene has a good range of daytime activities, kids' clubs and so forth, and in high season, there’s also plenty of evening action in the form of live music and shows (at other times, you’ll find a more toned-down entertainment schedule).
Open from 20/03/2017 to 02/11/2017

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A19 just south of Peterlee, take the B1281 turning signposted Blackhall. Drive through Castle Eden, turning left after about half a mile and continue towards Blackhall. After approximately 3 miles turn right at the T-junction onto the A1086, towards Crimdon. After about 1 mile the park entrance is signposted on the left, beside the Seagull public house.
Ramble or ride along the coastal path to get the best views of the ruggedly dramatic Durham Heritage Coast, or head inland to explore ancient woodlands such as Castle Eden Dene, a 550-acre nature reserve with more than 450 types of flora and 12 miles of footpaths.
In nearby Hartlepool, guests can tour HMS Trincomalee, the oldest warship still afloat in the UK, along with lots of other interesting stuff at the Maritime Experience on the historic quayside.
Other popular attractions include the Tweddle Children’s Animal Farm, which is on the doorstep, or the fascinating living history museum at Beamish, a little further afield.
It’s also well worth a trip to Durham, where you can stroll along the tranquil river banks for stunning views of the ancient cathedral and castle; or to Newcastle, which is crammed with culture and commerce.
