  • Family-friendly Northumberland touring site with luxury facilities
  • Holy Island 25 minutes’ drive and Alnwick Castle 35 minutes
  • Soft-play centre and games field; restaurant and adults-only bar
Plush Ord House Country Park is set on 42 peaceful, tree-lined acres of private parkland at East Ord, within 10 minutes’ drive of gorgeous Northumberland countryside, historic Berwick-upon-Tweed and sandy Spittal Beach on the North Sea. It’s also easy to access for anyone travelling north or south, as the main A1 is just five minutes away. A whole bunch of facilities at this leafy, landscaped site will make life very easy for you indeed. Travelling with the kids? If your toddlers have energy to burn off, there’s a soft-play centre where they can have a run around, while older kids can keep busy on the playground, activity area and games field. If you’re after a bit of grown-up downtime, simply drift off to the elegant adults-only lounge bar for some peaceful R&R; otherwise head to the family-friendly main bar or book the informal Ord House Lounge Bar and Grill, where there’s a designated kids’ zone. Prettily landscaped pitches are all neatly delineated by clipped hedges. Practical on-site amenities include a laundry service with coin-operated washing machines and dryers, a dish-washing and veg-prep area, and pristine tiled showers in spacious family bathrooms with hair dryers and shaving points.

Kim M. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Electric gravel touring pitch

Liked: The staff were great, lovely lady on reception and the bar staff were equally pleasant and helpful. The site is nicely laid out and kept spotless. The toilets and showers were incredible, the best I have ever seen, I thought I had strayed into some Park Lane hotel. The whole standard was incredible for a very reasonable price, just wish it was closer so that I could use it more often.

Disliked: Ridiculous things follow and they are not meant as a derogatory attack, just to let the site management know that they could improve even further. The digital number locks on the facility doors could do with illuminated key pads and the socket on the EHU was underneath the box about 400mm off the floor making cable connection a chore. Probably not a problem for most but when you are getting on in life both these issues quickly become niggles.

Electric gravel touring pitch

Liked: Nice clean site with a Bar & Restaurant - the food is good value and was of good standard. There was also Crazy golf putting, Toilets and showers were quite clean however my wife had to unclog 1 of the sinks as it was full of hair and almost over flowed. The showers were good with hot water (almost too hot) The site is vast with it being mainly static homes, think I counted 300+ The grounds were very well kept and we were looking forward to this site out of all of the sites we'd booked. Reception did try to accomodate our request for another pitch but were too full to put us on a differerent pitch so we had to stay put.

Disliked: If your in a campervan your pitch is basically an unlevel car park with electric hook up. Toilets were locked all day and night with a key code which is a pain as they weren't well lit up at night. The ladies showers were not cleaned in the 2 days we were there. It's supposed to be Quiet site after 10.30 however next doors van and the seasonal caravan behind them decided it would be ok to party loudly until 12 a.m. Didn't see the warden once in the evening/night to complain but decided wasn't worth it as we were leaving the following morning. There are a lot of rules which is fine as long as everyone abides by them and you'd of thought seasonal guests would know. This site is totally geared up for static seasonal guests and I personally think as a campervan touring this site is expensive for the poor pitch we got, sadly I doubt we will return.

Allie T. The reviewer booked through Pitchup.com

Electric gravel touring pitch

Liked: Really nice facilities, the toilet and shower block were fantastic Good if you have children. If there changed the dog situation I would book again

Disliked: When we booked in we were immediately told our dog wasn't allowed in the bar or restaurant area due to a children's indoor play area and kids running around near dogs isn't a good mix so I asked were they allowed on the terraced area which is outside of the play area and told NO but if I want food or a drink I can get a takeaway and sit on the benches near the kids play park if the weather is OK! So I thought we'll it's a bit strange that dogs and drinks glasses are allowed right near the kids play park where kids are running around but not inside and the weather was too cold to sit and eat outside ! I later found out there is an adults only bar so I asked the question are dogs allowed in there and told no as kids will be running around but when I stressed it is adults only they said no sorry they don't want dogs in as it is more like a hotel !! There was a singer on in the main bar on the Saturday night and people with dogs where being turned away and they couldn't watch it ! I feel this sites is definitely not dog friendly and they just don't want people with dogs in the bar or restaurant area ! We were next to a single parent who had 2 young children and a dog and the children couldn't use the indoor play area due to the dog not bing allowed in and it was too hot to leave the dog in the camper van, we ate in a Michelin star restaurant nearby and the dog was allowed in there ! We were looking forward to using the facilities and watching the entertainment but unfortunately couldn't due to our dog and we can't leave him in the caravan as he would bark and I wouldn't be inconsiderate to other people around us. I also felt the space between the tourers and camper vans wasn't big enough there felt a bit closed in on the area we were !

Local attractions

It’s time to get to grips with some Northumberland history. Mighty Bamburgh Castle (25 minutes’ drive) is open for guided tours, while Alnwick Castle (35 minutes) is famed for its exotic Poison Garden and Harry Potter film locations. You can nip across the causeway to Holy Island (25 minutes) and tour the castle and cathedral, or stretch your legs on a wander around the 16th-century walls of Berwick-upon-Tweed (five minutes). Sneak across the border into Scotland to potter around rooms stuffed with priceless Chippendale furniture at Palladian-era Paxton House (10 minutes), or make for Marchmont House to wander its wondrous gardens (half an hour). Spectacular Floors Castle (40 minutes) has a series of opulent apartments to discover, along with a walled garden and scenic walks along the River Tweed. Experiencing cultural overload? Sail forth onto the North Sea for dolphin-spotting expeditions or Farne Islands cruises to see puffins and seals from Seahouses (35 minutes). Happier on dry land? Stride out in Northumberland National Park (25 minutes), or play a round of golf – there are a couple of courses in less than 10 minutes’ drive.
