The view from the park

General

  • Family park close to the Durham coastline, with sea and beach views
  • Smart facilities including a pool, sports court and bar-restaurant
  • A 25-minute drive from Durham and 40 from Newcastle city centre

A pebble’s propulsion from golden sand dunes, with a perfect view of the blue-green ocean as far as the eye can see… Crimdon Dene Holiday Park is an excellent spot for discovering the splendour of the little-known stretch of coastline known as the Durham Heritage Coast.

Getting out onto the nearest stretch of sand is a cinch from here, as Crimdon beach is a short walk away; the site's also well placed for mini safaris in the local nature reserves, strolls on the coast path and games of golf with cracking clifftop views.

Certain guests may decree the North Sea to be just a tad too chilly for a full-on swim; those folk will be pleased to hear that there's warmer water at the indoor pool back at the park, and even warmer still in the Jacuzzi next to it. An outdoor sports court and playground are on hand for those who require a bit of space to run about, and an amusement arcade for those who'd like to invest their pocket money in games of skill, luck and concentration. Fuel all this activity with meals and drinks at the spacious bar-restaurant or hot drinks from the coffee bar.

As a family park, Crimdon Dene has a good range of daytime activities, kids' clubs and so forth, and in high season, there’s also plenty of evening action in the form of live music and shows (at other times, you’ll find a more toned-down entertainment schedule).

Level pitches but could do with more concrete and less grass11/06/2020

    The space for the pitch was great and was very level

    Disliked: 

    The grass was boggy, I got stuck getting the caravan out. Could do with more gravel or concrete around that area. Maybe all behind the pitch grassed and infront concrete to help with traction.

    to many to list!here are a few...toilet blocks absolutely disgusting never have I seen anything as bad wish I'd taken pictures now,litter everywhere cigarette ends all over full ashtrays,the pitches were a joke all boggy and muddy!the boat house bar was dirty and really needs updating,the arcades were pitiful,again toilets a disgrace!other tourers were up until 2am with loud music and even louder talking,on arrival we were told just to find a spot no designated slots so was a free for all!massive pot holes in the road which is bad for a car and caravan!no swimming available at all which I understand there's limited space but there didn't seem to be many times to book in?we've been to alot of different sites now and i can honestly say this has to be the worse one!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Ramble or ride along the coastal path to get the best views of the ruggedly dramatic Durham Heritage Coast, or head inland to explore ancient woodlands such as Castle Eden Dene (15 minutes' drive), a 550-acre nature reserve with more than 450 types of flora and 12 miles of footpaths.

In nearby Hartlepool (10 minutes), guests can tour HMS Trincomalee, the oldest warship still afloat in the UK, along with lots of other interesting stuff at the Maritime Experience on the historic quayside.

Other popular attractions include the Tweddle Children’s Animal Farm, a 15-minute walk away (perhaps a little longer if you're marshalling small people), or the fascinating living history museum at Beamish (40 minutes' drive), where kids can don hard hats for trips down the mine, ride an old tramway and get stuck into lots of dressing up and activities.

It’s also well worth a trip to Durham (25 minutes), where you can stroll along the river banks for stunning views of the ancient cathedral and castle; or to Newcastle (40 minutes), which is crammed with culture and commerce.

Must see

  • Hartlepool's Maritime Experience (5.8 kilometers)
  • Durham Coast (8.4 kilometers)
  • mima (17.8 kilometers)
