General

  • Dog-friendly static caravan stays
  • Spectacular views of the fells and the Pennine hills
  • A short stroll to the local village and its inn

A village green is a lovely thing indeed, but this Pennines park has the added bonus of fab views too… Village Green Caravan Park, near Consett in Co Durham, is one to take the camera/paintbox along to for its views of the local fells, Pennine hills and nature-heavy Derwent Reservoir.

The surrounding area is crammed too with all sorts of spectacular sights and it’s a short drive to nationally acclaimed attractions like Durham Cathedral and the Hadrian’s Wall Path National Trail to come, see and conquer.

Accommodation at Village Green Caravan Park is in a two-bedroom static caravan, available for weekly hols or short stays. It’s spacious and equipped with a kitchen, dining area and lounge, but if you don’t fancy the washing up, it’s a mere stroll to the ‘village’ in the site name, historic Edmundbyers, for tasty treats at the Punchbowl Inn.

Handily for an area so filled with walkies, the caravan park is dog-friendly and your furry friend is welcome indoors for a teeny extra charge.

    Easy check in by welcoming staff. Clean tidy accommodation, which was warm and relaxing. Nice quiet location which was well managed in a very pleasant countryside area. We have stayed here several times in the past for our countryside pursuits and find it just perfect for access to the Moorland and the Dales.
    Its a quick drive to the main shopping centers of Consett for all your provisions for a week and a short distance to Stanhope by car where you can access local shops and takeaways including fish and chips.
    We would strongly recommend this site and its accommodation for anyone looking at a Cycling, Walking, or Fishing adventure in the local area. Derwent Valley Reservoir is a stones throw away and very scenic.

Local attractions

The second biggest reservoir in the north-east, Derwent, is on Village Green’s doorstep and is a well-known wildlife haven, particularly for wildfowl; it’s been managed as a nature reserve since the 1960s and flutterers can spot many feathery species roosting and feeding here including greylag geese, mallard, tufted, pochard and goosander ducks, coots, moorhens and the occasional barnacle and white-fronted goose. Bring a picnic in summer and hike the path to the shores of the reservoir where there are benches to watch the birds (the path is closed in winter so the roosting birds aren’t disturbed).

You’ll also be able to sail on the reservoir or take in an event with the Derwent Reservoir Sailing Club, and fish for trout of up to 20lbs with the help of the folk at Northumbrian Water. Coarse fishing is additionally available from the reservoir’s south shore and dam wall, and the Derwent Reservoir fishery shop sells rods, tackle and Environment Agency fishing licences.

Pick up Derwent Reservoir info and ideas at its visitor centre and take the easy two-mile walk to nearby Pow Hill Country Park, a mix of woodland, marshland, grass and heather and with plenty of picnic tables throughout for post-hike alfresco bites.

Several of the picnic areas are wheelchair accessible and there’s a wheelchair-friendly trail to Pow Hill from the south end of the Derwent Reservoir dam, and to Millshield picnic site from the dam wall’s north shore. The park also has an easy access trail from its north-west corner, leading to Facebook-worthy views across the reservoir towards Castleside and the Hownsgill Viaduct.

Urbanites will find quite a bit to do around here too – historic Durham is a quick drive away, Newcastle upon Tyne is within an hour, and the towns of Consett, Stanhope and Hexham are close by.

Take a trip to Hexham for its Tuesday and Saturday markets, dating back to the eighteenth century, its shopping streets and its medieval buildings overlooking the Tyne Valley; the seventh century Hexham Abbey is a bit of a must too. It's also a fine idea to head up to Yarridge Heights in the Hexham hills for racecourse meets and more spectacular views, or to spook oneself at fourteenth century Hexham Gaol and take in the museum and one of the many galleries.

There’s more marketeering – and street entertainment in summer – in Durham’s cobbled marketplace, and once you’ve finished with that and the cathedral, there’s a monthly farmers’ market to pick up some local produce; prize-winning floral displays for yet more photos, and riverbank walks within a few minutes of the city centre: look out for university rowers or take to the water yourself on a Prince Bishop river cruiser.
