Discover Northern Ireland on your motorhome and caravan holidays, and pitch at Cranfield Caravan Park in County Down, a five-star family holiday retreat on the east coast.
The site is open from the middle of March until the end of September. Guests are welcome to stay in the modern and well-equipped static holiday homes found at the site, while touring pitches are provided for guests with their own motorhome, touring caravan or campervan.
All 40 of the touring pitches are hardstanding and fully serviced, inclusive of electric, water, drainage and digital TV hook-ups, as well as Wi-Fi, meaning guests are assured a comfortable stay during their time at Cranfield Caravan Park. Additional facilities found at the site include a toilet and shower block, dishwashing areas and a laundrette. There is no shop and bar/restaurant on-site, but both are found a short walk away from the site.
This is a dog friendly campsite, but please ensure you keep your dog under control at all times – and you must clean up after your canine companion, too.
The touring area at Cranfield Caravan Park sits right on the beach, and offers fabulous views of the Mourne Mountains. Whether guests are looking for an early morning swim in the calm sea or want to walk the dog along the beach before it gets busy, they have the freedom to do whatever they wish, and the location of the park means guests always have the full choice of spots on the beach to make their own.
Guests that love the outdoors can head out along the Northern Irish coast from the park, with miles of walking routes offering tremendous views out to sea as well as across the mountains. The mountains themselves are also accessible for anyone feeling energetic enough for a walk or mountain bike trip on what is highly challenging terrain. The Silent Valley Mountain Park is a great location for those looking for a more relaxing outdoor experience while still enjoying the majestic landscape.
The nearest town to Cranfield Caravan Park is Kilkeel, a small and charming location which is about a 10-minute drive away. Kilkeel has a wonderful harbour area that is at the heart of the town’s fishing industry. It is a great place to visit and walk around while also having a number of excellent cafés and restaurants close by, most of which serve freshly caught seafood all through the day.
Tourists into their history and heritage can discover the RNLI Lifeboat Station and the story behind this, while there are several historic churches found in the town. A number of the town’s buildings are also historically significant, with information about how they were used prior to becoming banks and shops widely available in Kilkeel.
The town is home to a leisure centre, which itself is close to a bowling alley, football pitches and tennis courts. Kilkeel Golf Club is also open to the public, while casual golfers will find a pitch and putt attraction close to Cranfield Caravan Park.
