Paxton House Caravan Park: Pitches on site

General

  • Berwickshire caravan park in the grounds of 18th-century Paxton House
  • A 10-minute drive to Berwick-upon-Tweed beaches, castle and boat trips
  • Woodland walks, adventure playground, Tweed river trips from the site

Want to see how the other half lives? Pack a bag and park yourself in the walled garden at Paxton House Caravan Park. This Berwickshire pile was built in the Palladian style in 1763 for a nobleman who planned to live in it… then inherited a castle and moved there instead.

Staying in this small park on the 80 acres of grounds, visitors can take in this popular landmark at their leisure, with river walks and boat trips down the Tweed and/or by delving into the history of the house and its collections of art and furniture. The kids can let off steam on the adventure playground and follow woodland trails to discover wildlife and maybe encounter a fairy or two.

For practical things likes pubs and grub and shops, as well as sandy beaches, estuary walks, sea safaris and fishing trips, Berwick-upon-Tweed is a brilliantly convenient 10 minutes' drive away. It’s also got a top castle, and a hefty handful of medieval forts and towers… and you can take a horseback ride down the beach like some country squire with a walled garden…

    If the site was busy the facilities (2 loos and 2 showers) would be inadequate.

    Have not been to Paton Houde for a long time it has lovely grounds and play area and walks down by the river.
    Camp site clean and well looked after toilets often.
    It’s nice they have put hard standing for pitch and quite a good size motorhome and a car and nice bit of grassed area as well
    They have only two toilet/shower block they have a electric heart on the wall if needed
    At the time we went only our motorhome and one caravan out of a 30 pitch site
    Over all good site for our needs
    On arriving you can select any pitch you like that if free

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the toilet in one of the block was broke so only one toilet for the sit it was alright for us because only motorhome and caravan on site if site full could be a big problem.
    Lighting on site not very good at you’ll need to bring torches with you
    Only other thing is that staff are not around if you look on notice board you will find phone numbers for they day time and night time.

Beautiful site in good location.06/01/2023

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful site, loved the old walls and evidence that hedges have been planted to separate pitches and give privacy (although they arent fully grown yet). Good water, electricity and waste facilities. quiet and peaceful but within walking distance of lovely pub for a good meal. Easy access to Berwick.
    Good shower in huge shower room, plenty of room to dry and get dressed.
    Pitches level and generous, easy access to hook up and water supply.
    Good, well marked, discreet and separate waste disposal and cassette toilet emptying facilities.
    Very peaceful location but with easy access to Berwick.

    Disliked: 

    Only one toilet working. Only two toilets anyway on the site so I would think it would be not enough if the site was fully occupied. Only one other caravan there when we stayed so no problem when we stayed though.

    No staff evident - not a problem for us but I’m not sure what we would have done if we had problems with the facilities or indeed with other users of the site.

Local attractions

History is never far away in these parts, and the glimpses you’ll get of Lindisfarne half an hour's drive away will doubtless lure you out during your stay. Wild and peaceful, the ruins of the priory and the castle point to the long and turbulent human past of the place while the colonies of puffins and waders carry on regardless. Check tide times if heading out by car; boat trips to and round make a leisurely way to visit with seal and puffin spotting possibilities en route.

There are many more castles to peruse, if that’s your penchant: Bamburgh, still occupied but open to visitors, is half an hour’s drive away. Despite being 700 years old, Alnwick (45 minutes) is also still home to the descendants of its original owners and a must-see for JK Rowling fans as the film location for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The little villages of Beadnell and Seahouses (45 minutes away) form the gateway to the Northumbria Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a sea-hugging zone stuffed with chances to go rockpooling and paddleboarding, plus coastal paths and bike trails as well as a haven for wildflowers and (yes, really) wild cattle.

Half an hour’s drive gets you to the edge of Northumbria National Park, packed with Roman remains, climbing in the Cheviot Hills and paths round Kielder Water. Further afield, the museums, culture, lively pubs and (of course) the castle of Edinburgh are very doable for a day trip, an hour and 20 minutes away.

Must see

  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Castle & Ramparts (4.1 miles)
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Barracks & Main Guard (4.2 miles)
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Museum and Art Gallery (4.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Lindisfarne Castle (14.2 miles)
