A warm welcome awaits you from Susan and Stuart Collingwood, who took over The Railway Inn in June 2009.
Set in two acres of pleasant grounds with an abundance of trees and shrubs, the caravan park is located at the front of the Inn, so your evening meal is only a stone's throw from your caravan.
We have a shower block with separate ladies and gents toilets and showers, along with a dishwashing area.
We are on the edge of Acklington village, only four miles from the A1. Northumberland is famous for its coastline and historical landmarks including its wonderful castles such as Alnwick, Bamburgh and Warkworth, only a short journey away.

From the A1, pass Morpeth. After approximately 10 miles, turn right at the sign for Felton and Amble (ignoring any signs you may see for Acklington before this). Travel towards Felton until you see a sign for Acklington and Amble, and follow this road (B6345) for approx. three miles. The Railway Inn is on the right over the bridge.
From the A1 pass Alnwick then after approximately 10 miles follow the above directions, ignoring the first turning for Felton.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
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.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
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.
