Adventure playground

General

  • Northumbrian 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 Northumbrian 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...

    No obvious place for emptying grey water.
    Only one hardstanding is connected to the drive. The others involve crossing over (sometimes boggy) grass.

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful walled area, lovely lawns, good spacing between the touring pitches. Beautiful river side walks to a 200 year old bridge and beyond.

    Disliked: 

    We'd have loved a toilet / small shower block. There was a sign saying that the river walk path was closed, and there appeared to be some path reconstruction going on. Most people were ignoring the sign.

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 opps for rockpooling and paddleboarding, 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 (6.6 kilometres)
  • Berwick-upon-Tweed Barracks & Main Guard (6.7 kilometres)
