Castledene Park is a new holiday park set in 18 acres of woodland near the rugged Durham Coast. The park is very secluded and quiet, and an ideal place to relax and enjoy the many attractions that the area has to offer, including the nearby beautiful Castle Eden Dene.
The park is currently undergoing refurbishment and will reopen in the coming months as a brand new park with doors wide open.
The Castledene Holiday Park is situated in the historic country of Durham. More specifically Peterdene which is not only a great place to live, it is a superb place to visit for a holiday or short break. Here we offer some of the best places to visit in the Durham area.
The town of Peterlee is named after one Mr Peter Lee whose idea it was to develop a place in which to live where residents could enjoy a better standard of living, where the conveniences of modern living can be accessible in this predominantly green area without dramatically altering the landscape. This proposed high standard of living and healthy community spirit has been achieved and is recognised as one of the areas true success stories in recent times. Peterlee's 'high standard of living' has nothing to do with financial circumstances, it is about living in a good area, a place you can be proud to be a part of, and when you visit you will see instantly what this means.
The Great Outdoors
The main attraction for which the area is famed worldwide is the Castle Eden Dene National Reserve. The reserve is the largest natural woodland in the Britain and is home to various common mammals indigenous to the UK such as the endangered/near threatened Red Squirrel, the Fox, Roe Deer and the Badger. Over the 12 miles of public walkways in the woodlands you will also find a plethora of sumptuous plants, grasses and flowers; one of the high points of the year is in the Summer months is when the flowering of the beautiful fragrant orchids and the Rock Rose occurs in the grasslands of the park. Parts of the reserve remain almost unaltered by man since the Ice Age!
Another recommended place to walk is The Durham Coastal Footpath which is an 11 mile route from Seaham to Crimdom. Walk Around (leaflets) detail 13 other amazing walks in the area, information can be found via the Peterlee Information Centre or you can pick up a leaflet from any tourist information shop.
