The lovely park

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

We’d be mightily chuffed if our village green had views like this Pennines park… near Consett in Co Durham is one to take the camera/paintbox 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 spaciously 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 with 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.

    We loved the fact that the site was so peaceful. The hall is well equipped with games (table football and computer games) and with books and board games to borrow. There are lots of pamphlets available of places to visit.
    The site offers good dog walks and a great play area for the kiddies.
    There is The Punch Bowl pub less than 5 mins walk from the site which serves good food and if you ask they do have Dominoes and few other games to play as well as an outside garden.

    Beautiful, peaceful and we'll maintained site. Lovely people and stunning scenery.

    Well placed for all the obvious tourist and historical sites of the North East and close enough to shops to be convenient.

    Caravan was well maintained, clean and secure. Free Wi-Fi was a bonus for the kids. Made good use of the club house with pool table and board games.

    Would definitely go back.

Local attractions

This is a gorgeous part of the world, with attractions and activities of all flavours all around including nature spotting, sailing and river cruising, country walks, heritage trips and shopping (essential).

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 licenses.

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. We’d also recommend heading up to Yarridge Heights in the Hexham hills for some racecourse meets and more spectacular views, spooking oneself at fourteenth century Hexham Gaol and taking 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.
