    Lovely park by the river and great for dog walks. Only our second outing in our campervan and the staff were very helpful (and so were the the other campers in helping us with our awning!) Close to the town for shops/pubs. Facilities a little dated but clean with hot water - what more do you need when camping!

    Disliked: 

    Would have liked a drive over pit for emptying our grey water.

    Good pitch location with electric hook up at reasonable price.

    Disliked: 

    Not many toilets available for size of site. Two out of the three mens toilet cubicles were blocked....perhaps more frequent checks on these would be appropriate.

    Picked the Riverside Country park for a one off midweek overnight stay for my wife & I + dog. We stayed in one of the camping pods that were described as unfurnished so took along 2 camp beds, small table, bedside lamp & fan heater. the pod had a double 3 pin socket so took along an extension to plug in phone, heater etc..
    On arrival at reception I was met by a nice receptionist who explained the site layout & was also given a promotional £10 voucher to spend in the restaurant bar.
    The pod was carpeted & cozy once the heater kicked in & we had a pleasant stay.
    The toilet block was clean & tidy but didn't get to use the showers.
    We went the short 5 min walk up the hill to the village were we spent some time in a couple of pubs.
    Lovely walk along the riverside the next morning with the dog before we checked out at reception.
    A different receptionist in the morning who was also extremely pleasant.
    We used the £10 voucher in the restaurant for breakfast before we left.
    Would recommend the park to anyone & ignore the negative reviews as we had a great time.
    Would definitely stay again

    Road noise a bit busy early in the morning.

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.
