Forget Me Not Country Park Morpeth, Northumberland, North of England, NE65 8QY (Location map)
Open all year
Visit Northumberland on your motorhome and caravan holidays and pitch at the lovely Forget Me Not Country Park, a family-run campsite which is the latest addition to the Maguires Country Park group.
Open all year, this site caters for families and couples. Rallies are permitted and this is a dog friendly campsite, although owners are reminded to clean up after their four-legged friends and to keep them under control at all times.
There are pitches at this site for those staying in caravans and motorhomes, plus some of the pitches are serviced and there are some seasonal pitches, too. The layout of the pitches means everyone can enjoy a high degree of privacy, plus the pitches are hardstanding with grass surrounds. In addition, the campsite's helpful staff will show you to your pitch.
The facilities at Forget Me Not Country Park are top notch. The washblock is modern, fully heated and kept clean at all time, with no fee for shower usage, and there is access for disabled guests. There's a laundry, parking for visitors, Wi-Fi, a chemical disposal point and washing up facilities, plus this site is an LPG stockist. A security barrier on arrival provides peace of mind and if you're taking little ones, you'll find this a comfort. There's also a good sized play area where they can go off and let off a little steam.
And when it is time for the grown ups to let down their hair, evening entertainment and meals can be enjoyed at the campsite's bar. Or maybe you just want to retire to your motorhome or caravan and enjoy the tranquility of this campsite.
If you are new to the area, ask the park's staff for ideas of places to go, or visit the campsite's reception where you'll find information about things to do and walks to take in the local area.
Forget Me Not Country Park sits on the edge of the village of Longhorsley which, in turn, sits on the A697, meaning this park is quiet and in a peaceful location, yet has good transport links – it is very accessible. Pitch here and you're just a 15- or 20-minute drive from Morpeth, the county town of Northumberland, and a 35- to 45-minute drive to Newcastle upon Tyne, a thriving, exciting city where there is so much to see and do.
You could visit Hadrian's Wall when staying here, or perhaps you'd like to visit one of the region's many castles. Alnwick Castle is about half an hour from this campsite by car, while Bamburgh Castle is also under an hour's drive away. And don't forget the magnificent Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island – it is one of the region's must-see sights and is about an hour from Forget Me Not Country Park.
If you'd rather lose yourself in the wilds of the Northumberland National Park, it's on your doorstep when pitched at this campsite. If you have a sweet tooth, the tearoom walks might take your fancy, or you could go cycling, horse riding, fell running, fishing or rock climbing.
There's also the neighbouring Kielder Water and Forest Park, where mountain biking, pony trekking, canoeing and water skiing are among the activities on offer. Or how about a spot of stargazing? Kielder Observatory is in the heart of Northumberland International Dark Sky Park and there are events here all year round.
So visit Northumberland and find out what the area has to offer on your motorhome and caravan holidays, when staying at Forget Me Not Country Park.

Had a seasonal pitch here for a number of years and, due to the positive impact the change of ownership has had on the park have bought a static caravan. To all you people who haven't been over the past few years, give it a go. You will be assured a warm welcome by the Staff and customers alike.

Had been advised was a friendly place to visit so thought we would give it a try, although there were a lot of friendly people, in general the site is very "clicky" and if your face does not fit you don't stand much of a chance, most of the staff were very helpful and friendly however management need to take a look at themselves and staff in reception, toilets were clean, showers hot. Would I recommend the site to family and friends I THINK NOT!!!!! have been to better places where management have a nicer attitude

We have been on forget me not for about 3 seasons. We have a tourer on willows 1 and love it there. The site is clean and the amenities are excellent. We wouldn't go anywhere else as we are well looked after by the Hamilton family and all the friendly staff. We intend to stay on our beautiful pitch for years to come. A big thank you to all staff and lovely friends we have made.
