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).

    We found all staff to be friendly. The toilets in the entertainment block were kept consistently clean. The food in the boat house was good but a little expensive tbh and tasted ok.

    Disliked: 

    The touring pitches are way too close together, and are not kept clean. There were cigarette butts everywhere and the whole place felt dirty. The toilets in the touring area smelt awful and at one point had run out of toilet paper and soap for 12 hours. We witnessed a woman letting her dog wee right near the children's play area and many other dogs were fowling areas where people walked and were not clearing it up. We were staying in our camper van so needed to put up a small tent in order to store our things in there while we slept in the van. However we were told that the site doesn't have insurance for this (only for awnings). We weren't told this at time of booking and really couldn't see the problem as we weren't sleeping in the tent. We definitely wouldn't visit again. Holiday makers are paying good money for substandard conditions and this to me is unacceptable.

    Seaside location

    Disliked: 

    There was no barrier control which allowed several travelling caravan to enter the site. The facilities were cleaned well but the staff told me that the soap and toilet roll would just get stolen. The shower block would always get flooded which made showering impossible. This wasn’t a holiday for me and is the 3rd time it has been ruined by travellers. The entertainment was limited which I fully understand given today’s epidemic. The staffing in the bar was too light and left us waiting over an hour for food and 30 minutes for drinks. Overall I am totally disappointed with Park Dene Resorts who were once a prestigious establishment. I won’t be booking through them again.

    The staff were all helpful & friendly.

    Disliked: 

    Considering the situation with Covid 19 I did not feel that enough attention was being paid to any cleaning plans. I used the toilet facilities but there was no soap available & I did not see any hand sanitizers. The chemical waste point was blocked & overflowing and again as this was in an area surrounded by caravans I thought it was extremely unsatisfactory.
    Some of the dogs that were allowed on the site were the breeds that are not permitted on many sites.
    I only stayed for one night although I had paid for two.

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 (3.6 miles)
