Yont the Cleugh Caravan Park is a friendly, family run holiday retreat on the northern edge of the Pennines, a short distance from the southern edge of Northumberland National Park.
The park welcomes guests with touring caravans and tents, while also offering ownership of a number of static caravans or a range of modern, luxurious, wooden lodges. The park is open from 1 March until 31 October for touring and camping guests, with the season extending up until the end of January for static caravan and lodge owners.
The amenities block at Yont the Cleugh Caravan Park includes toilets, basins and showers, plus there's also a laundrette, a dishwashing point and a tourist information area, perfect for guests looking to quickly discover the best places to visit across the Pennines or into Northumberland National Park. Calor Gas is available at the park for guests requiring refills or canister exchanges, while the bar is open throughout the season so you can grab a drink, and it also has a family and games room attached to it. Touring and camping guests are welcome to use the children’s play area, which is found in the centre of the static home area of the site, while the ball games field is also open to all and is adjacent to the camping and touring area.
The park is ideally situated for exploring many of the incredible outdoor attractions of the north, while a wide range of activities are also offered close by. Numerous waterways close by are suitable for fishing, though guests happy to travel with their equipment often head through Northumberland National Park to Kielder Water reservoir, or north west to the Lake District.
Pony trekking is a popular – and often the quickest – way to see as much of the countryside as possible, and is available from Allendale Town or Hexham, which are both found nearby. Half or full day tours around the area are offered, while there is also the option of taking lessons for those just looking to try something new.
The nearest town, Haltwhistle, is just a short, about 15-minute drive to the north, and is a great place to head in search of things to do. There is a wonderful golf course in the town, while there’s a leisure centre that houses a soft play area for children, in a sports hall also suitable for tennis, squash and badminton.
Mountain biking is popular in the area, with cycle hire available from numerous locations and some great routes both across the hilly landscape as well as the flatter moorland areas nearby.
Of course, this is also a fantastic part of the world to visit if you love walking holidays, with Kielder Forest Park, the Northumberland National Park, the Pennines, the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District all relatively near by. And it's not just walking you can enjoy. Many other activities can be enjoyed, both by beginners and those more experienced, including sailing, windsurfing, geocaching, climbing, fell running and kayaking.
If you'd like to visit Carlisle on your camping and caravan holidays, it is only about a 40-minute drive from this park, while Hexham is about half an hour away.
So if you choose Yont the Cleugh Caravan Park as your base from which to explore Northumberland, you definitely will not be short of things to do.
