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.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Group bookings of 10 or more adults are not permitted (couples and immediate family members excepted).

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

    Caused Mayhem on first day of stay as had to move 2 Static Vans past my pitch. Poor communication led to me being non too pleased.
    Static Site just above Camp Site is being renovated so lots of noise being generated during the day with vans, tractors, etc going past our pitch for access to field next to us.
    So a peaceful retreat it certainly isn’t!
    Facilities on site are very basic.
    Price is way too high considering everything else going on and maybe place should have closed until they get it sorted!
