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.

    Clean toilets, Adam was friendly and helpful. Nice peaceful site.

    Disliked: 

    My pitch wasn't level which was annoying when trying to cook and I lost a cup of tea when it went sliding off the table. There is also only 1 sink & 1 shower which I imagine being a problem when it's busy.

  • Electric optional grass trailer tent or tent pitch

  • Liked: 

    Everything. It was a lovely site the view from our pitch was great we faced a pasture with trees and grassed area. As we were the only ones on site for most of the week , we had the pick of the best spot. The owner Adam was great he visited us every day to make sure we were ok or if we needed anything. The toilets were clean and tidy. We would definitely go there again. It has so much potential.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing we didn't like was the pitches were nowhere near level. I have a bad back and quite a few times I slipped as I got out of bed. We did mention it to Adam . That is all that we could say negative about it.

We would definately stay again and bring family who have tents. 29/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Tranquil and relaxing. Nice to have tents and small motorhomes together. Adam very helpful. Dog friendly. Pub, within walking distance (15 mins) also dog friendly and good food. Came home feeling very relaxed and chilled. Met lovely fellow campers. Shower/toilet area cleaned daily. We will definitely come back with family who have tents as it is excellent that we can all be together. Perfect, quiet stay, just what we wanted.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike really, motorhome hook up areas very small, which was fine for us as we only have a small vehicle but difficult to pitch an awning up. Didn't spoil our stay at all as weather was perfect and we had our canopy if in need.

    Nice campsite, clean and friendly. We particularly enjoyed the giant chess set! We had a large choice of pitches despite being mid august with a last minute booking.

    Disliked: 

    Only one shower in the women's block meant quite a long wait in the morning - not sure if there were more elsewhere but if there were then we didn't find them.

    The lodge is really brilliant. Adam is helpful and a great host for the caravan park.
    The lodge has everything you need for a break, down to dishwasher tablets for the dishwasher! The lodge is well decorated and has a luxurious feel.
    The heating is easy to use and lodge quickly heats up. We had got caught in a very heavy rain shower up on Hadrian's wall and were chilled.
    The location is superb it is so quiet no road noise only the birds. Yet the train station is nearby so getting to Newcastle was no problem.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing.

Thanks so much, hope to see you again.
