Visit Northumberland on your motorhome and caravan holidays and pitch at the lovely Forget Me Not Country Park, a family-run campsite which is the latest addition to the Maguires Country Park group.
Open all year, this site caters for families and couples. Rallies are permitted and 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 washblock 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, Wi-Fi, 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 campsite's bar. Or maybe you just want to retire to your motorhome or caravan and enjoy the tranquility 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.
There's also the neighbouring Kielder Water and Forest Park, where mountain biking, pony trekking, canoeing and water skiing are among the activities on offer. Or how about a spot of stargazing? Kielder Observatory is in the heart of Northumberland International Dark Sky Park and there are events here all year round.
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.
