General

  • Friendly well-maintained park on the banks of Wooler Water
  • Lounge bar, restaurant and entertainment in peak season
  • A 10-minute walk to the medieval market town of Wooler

Avoid the hordes crawling to the south-west coast and breeze your way to a little gem on the edge of the Northumberland National Park instead...

Riverside Country Park is a friendly, well-maintained site on the banks of Wooler Water, with plenty to appeal to the whole family: pottering around the riverbanks and stunning woodland, soaking in the indoor swimming pool, baiting of rods for a bit of fly fishing, or a few rounds of pool in the games room....

The park has good essential amenities, including a lounge bar and restaurant with free wifi for 30 minutes per day, Sky Sports and BT Sports, a shop, launderette, play area and entertainment over peak season. Wifi access can be purchased at reception if required for use on park.

    This was our first time in a motor home. The site was very clean and well set out. It was just after lockdown but the showers and toilets were in use, with sanitizer stations on all the doors.
    From the site it isn’t quite central to other places of interest.
    While we were there my daughter had an online exam to do, the WiFi signal was brilliant.

Local attractions

Trip-trap over the bridge from Riverside Country Park to Wooler, a pretty medieval market town with some alluring eateries, pubs and shops, and the ideal starting point for walks into the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park. Cycling, fishing, golfing and horse riding fans will also find rich pickings nearby.

If you haven’t explored the Northumberland coastline before, you’re in for a treat. Expect atmospheric ancient edifices in spectacular surroundings, such as Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne; seaside villages like Seahouses, where you can jump aboard a sea safari boat to the Farne Islands; and miles and miles of nature reserves and wide sandy beaches.

You can follow Hadrian’s Wall westbound from its start point in Wallsend, stopping off at Roman forts in scenic settings as you head in the direction of Carlisle; travel along peaceful country roads to explore the Scottish borders; or south to visit Alnick Castle and the Alnick Garden, contemporary gardens with one of the world’s biggest treehouses.

For city lights, hit the A1 for an easy ride to Newcastle and Gateshead, both buzzing with culture (try the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art or a gig at the Sage Concert Hall), museums, football, restaurants, nightlife and shops; or head further north for a day trip to Auld Reekie to explore the many-splendoured delights of Edinburgh.
