General

  • Friendly well-maintained park on the banks of Wooler Water
  • Lounge bar, restaurant and entertainment in peak season
  • A 10-minute walk to the medieval market town of Wooler

Avoid the hordes crawling to the south-west coast and breeze your way to a little gem on the edge of the Northumberland National Park instead...

Riverside Country Park is a friendly, well-maintained site on the banks of Wooler Water, with plenty to appeal to the whole family: pottering around the riverbanks and stunning woodland, soaking in the indoor swimming pool, baiting of rods for a bit of fly fishing, or a few rounds of pool in the games room....

The park has good essential amenities, including a lounge bar and restaurant with free wifi for 30 minutes per day, Sky Sports and BT Sports, a shop, launderette, play area and entertainment over peak season. Wifi access can be purchased at reception if required for use on park.

    Entrance going out, the staff were very friendly but the site on the touring side needs work.

    Disliked: 

    the pitches weren't kept clean and tidy as it says on there paperwork they give you and there were loads of weeds coming through what was left of the hardstanding. The pitches that are standard are very small and need to be widened to give people privacy.

    Location was great for exploring, site really big lots to do. Pool was nice a separate section given for our own family. Babies first time in the pool.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing everything great. Only issue was noise from large group on touring pitch opposite group of males went on until 3 am. We have a 9month old baby and 4 year old.

    Carpet in the lodge, felt wipe clean flooring would be a lot more hygienic.

    made to feel very welcome and due to the present circumstances with the covid-19,everything was explained,about the site and how to use all the facilities safely and still enjoy our holiday.campsite was kept spotless and campers all seemed to follow the guide lines.we booked the swimming due to the number of people allowed in at any one time ( which meant we were quaranteed a place ) and with it being in august the restaurant was serving meals on monday to wednesday with the goverment help,which encouraged us to eat out more often.only 30-40 mins to the coast seahouses,bamburgh,alnwick or amble.we had a great day out in edinburgh,by getting the train from berwick upon tweed.overall a good campsite and will definetly return when all facilities are fully open.many thanks davy and corey

Local attractions

Trip-trap over the bridge from Riverside Country Park to Wooler, a pretty medieval market town with some alluring eateries, pubs and shops, and the ideal starting point for walks into the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park. Cycling, fishing, golfing and horse riding fans will also find rich pickings nearby.

If you haven’t explored the Northumberland coastline before, you’re in for a treat. Expect atmospheric ancient edifices in spectacular surroundings, such as Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne; seaside villages like Seahouses, where you can jump aboard a sea safari boat to the Farne Islands; and miles and miles of nature reserves and wide sandy beaches.

You can follow Hadrian’s Wall westbound from its start point in Wallsend, stopping off at Roman forts in scenic settings as you head in the direction of Carlisle; travel along peaceful country roads to explore the Scottish borders; or south to visit Alnick Castle and the Alnick Garden, contemporary gardens with one of the world’s biggest treehouses.

For city lights, hit the A1 for an easy ride to Newcastle and Gateshead, both buzzing with culture (try the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art or a gig at the Sage Concert Hall), museums, football, restaurants, nightlife and shops; or head further north for a day trip to Auld Reekie to explore the many-splendoured delights of Edinburgh.
