For holidays in South Shields, Sandhaven Caravan Park is an amazing five-star rated park on the edge of the beach offering breathtaking views along the coast and across the North Sea.

Guests staying at Sandhaven Caravan Park enjoy direct access to the beach at South Shields, which is one of the most popular in South Tyneside. The sea at the beach is clean and safe for swimming and paddling, and there is ample space on the sands for the whole family to relax and enjoy a range of beach activities.

Sandhaven Caravan Park is also just moments away from the Blue Flag rated Sandhaven Beach with its pristine waters and golden sands, and the dramatic cliffs and bays of nearby Marsden Bay.

The park features hardstanding pitches for small motorhomes and touring caravans, as well as offering a luxurious selection of holiday homes for hire and sale. All of the static caravans available for hire or purchase at the park are modern and luxurious, with their own private parking space, and are fully serviced, sitting on hardstanding pitches. Bed linen is included if you're hiring a holiday home, however, towels are not provided.

Sandhaven Caravan Park is open from the beginning of March until the end of November each year for holiday hire or touring. This is a dog-friendly campsite, and dog owners are asked to keep their pets under control, on a lead and that they clean up after them. In addition, after 11pm, the park owners ask that guests keep noise levels to a minimum so that everyone can enjoy a good night's sleep.

For motorhome or caravan holidays, you'll find the pitches are hardstanding and have 32A electric hook-ups, with water and drainage points nearby, plus each pitch has a gravel awning bay and a paved car parking port. A modern amenities block houses toilets and showers, and there's a launderette available for guests to use during their stay, which has ironing facilities as well as tumble dryers and washing machines.
