The High Hermitage Caravan Park: Setup

General

  • Quiet countryside park among ancient woodland
  • Tyne fishing available nearby: permits at reception
  • Wildlife haven a short walk from the village of Ovingham

Customer service is the name of the game at The High Hermitage Caravan Park, a peaceful place in the Northumberland countryside where staff are always on hand to deal with queries or concerns, and to keep the amenities up to high standards.

The landscape includes ancient woodland and the site's own stream, Kitty's Burn, all in a wildlife haven a short walk from the village of Ovingham via a few friendly local pubs. Many guests use the park as a base for the Northumberland coast; other famed destinations like Hadrian's Wall and Alnwick Castle are within easy reach.

The High Hermitage is less than a mile from Prudhoe railway station, where you can access trains to Newcastle, Carlisle, Hexham and Glasgow.

Fishing is available on site; pick up a permit at reception.

  • Liked: 

    The gravel under the motorhome wheels

    Disliked: 

    The gravel pitch and entrance to site was lovely but greatly disappointing with the toilets and showers felt like we were in an out back awful dirty old toilet and 1 shower in both male and female areas, sinks dirty, floors filthy and a shared plastic bin with dirty toilet paoer and sanitary in. There were more insects and spiders taking comfort in there than humans. No bag on the dirty plastic bin or lid. The toilet sleuse waste area the hose pipe didn't fit and next to laundry room eith very old rusty white goods. They may have had static homes new on there and we felt the entrance was to help this along because it was very dirt.

Lovely location and friendly welcome.20/09/2022

  • Electric optional grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The welcome was excellent and I was pleased with the welcome e-mail which I found informative and helpful.
    The pitch was as expected and it was easy to link up to the power supply, albeit the switch was a little stiff.

    Disliked: 

    The shower could do with improvement, the water appeared to run out just at the end of my shower (I was 2nd in the queue) and there was someone waiting after me - I hope she managed to get a shower!
    The loos could have been cleaned better - lots of cobwebs about and the loo roll was impossible to use in one of the cubicles.
    Probably my fault and inexperience, but as the tent pitches are on a slope - being at the bottom of the slope in pouring rain is not a clever idea!

    Location is great, ideal for our needs. Pitches are good and level with excellent services.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets unclean, whole site looks very tired and needs tidying up. Could be an amazing site with a bit of effort.
    Not the sites fault but there was a group of very noisy campers who were very disrespectful to other campers which meant we left after one night rather than stay for the two night we had booked.
