Forget Me Not Country Park, a family-run campsite which belongs to the Maguire’s Country Park group.
It is an owner’s only static caravan site that is the perfect destination for families looking to be in the heart of Northumberland and if you visit Northumberland in your motorhome you can pitch here too.

Open all year, this site caters for families and couples. 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 wash block 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, 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 campsites newly refurbished Prince William Bar & Grill. Within the Bar & Grill, you will find a family room with a soft play area for little ones and pool tables for older children. Or maybe you just want to retire to your motorhome or caravan and enjoy the tranquillity 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.

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.

We have had our caravan on Forget Me Not for approximately three years. As time went on we became more unhappy with the level of customer care from the staff, in particularly the new manager. We had to ask repeatedly for paperwork, and he appeared to have little knowledge of how to sell a caravan. If we queried anything we would told he didn’t like our attitude, and lots of other people on the caravan site were told the same as us.
One example of the customer care we experienced is that we had paving stones outside the caravan for our shed to sit on, when we removed the shed the paving stones went missing. We reported this to the staff, and we all agreed we could see the paving stones had been moved to, without our knowledge, but were advised that they couldn’t do anything about it. We had bought these paving stones personally, and had wanted to use them elsewhere but were left out of pocket.
The staff said they would take care of the sale of the caravan for us. We had very little interest in people wanting to buy the caravan as the staff were more interested in selling new caravans and only advertised our caravan on the park’s website, without a price, saying that used caravans “lower the tone” of the site. We decided to advertise our caravan ourselves and fortunately our caravan sold, but the final figure we ended up with was different to what we were told we would come away with, and were told “at the end of the day it’s sold”. We were charged £1,000 pitch fees (not site fees) which was deducted from the sale of the caravan which we knew nothing about. Once again we were out of pocket because of the staff. We are just glad to be off the site and would advise you to avoid at all costs.

We stayed at my uncles seasonal caravan for a week. The site is immaculate. The toilets are clean but looking a bit haggard. Showers were pathetic, just a drizzle of water coming out of them. The bar on site is lovely however the staff are abbrupt and rude at times. As one of the previous reviewers noted, the park is very clicky. The static owners look down on the the touring caravan owners and at times there was an uncomfortable atmosphere in the bar. We sat next to a gang of owners in the adult bar and all night we listened to them gossip and •••••• off other people on the site. It was awfull. We had food twice during our stay having been told it was brilliant. Alas it wasn't. It was expensive and the quality was poor. We expected home made quality but got low quality freezer bag food. Met some lovely people in the seasonal pitch area called willows 2. They were very welcoming and bent over backwards to help us when we couldn't sus out how to empty the toilet. They planned to move off next year and said they had made a hugh mistake moving onto the site. They told us a hand full of gossiping static owners spoil the place and they couldn't wait to leave. It had cost them £2395 in fees. Felt so sorry for them. My uncle also plans to move off next year he feels the same. I suppose it explains why there are lots of empty pitches on site. Lovely place but nasty underbelly and mob mentality spoilt it for us.

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.
