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 location is perfect, with the river being the feature splitting the site. Also three parks to keep the children occupied.

    Bar and restaurant, though staff friendly, they struggled to keep the area clean and stocked up. Amusements great addition to this area , but must of the machines broken.

    Very clean and maintained site with good facilities. On-site parks and evening entertainment were great for our 2 year old. A very short walk into Wooler town centre where there are a handful of shops and bars.

    Disliked: 

    Food and drinks wait in clubhouse - almost 2 hours for food and a 30 minute queue each time for drinks.

    Nice place, no noisy neighbours, other people staying were friendly and all staff pleasant.
    Security man came to check we were ok on our first night which was a nice touch and site was in good location for things we wanted to do while away. Water next to our pitch which was handy.

    Disliked: 

    Pitches too close together . Unable to park car and put awning up due to lack of space. Mens shower blocks dirty and club house was really poor especially considering the size of the site. Beer was rubbish, club was dirty, went once and not again.

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.
