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 - built very recently - include an indoor pool with jacuzzi, all-weather sports centre, and a spacious bar and restaurant. Since it’s part of the Park Resorts group, Crimdon Dene Holiday Park offers a good range of daytime activities, children’s 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).
Tourist board rating
Open from 23 Mar to 4 Nov
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 commerces.
