Ord House in Northumberland won the 'Best campsite in North-East England' category in the Top 100 Sites Awards 2019. This annual award scheme asks readers of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines and Caravan Sitefinder to rate their favourite campsites in the UK, then counts up the votes to find the national and regional winners each year.

In recent years, Ord House Country Park has either won or been recognised as a finalist in these awards proving that its high standards are consistently excellent.

The 44-acre five-star country park is home primarily to static holiday caravans for sale, seasonal and casual touring pitches and camping pods for hire. More recently, Ord House Country Park offers residential park home living.

Three areas at Ord House Country Park are set aside exclusively for tourers in caravans, motorhomes, trailer tents. All pitches are of a good size and have electric hook-up. It is a wonderful campsite for family holidays in Northumberland and it is open all year round.

Site facilities are impressive, including an award-winning centrally heated washroom that includes baths, free hot showers, free hairdryers, family shower and bathroom suites, disabled facilities, a dishwashing and vegetable preparation area and a launderette.

Ord House Lounge Bar & Grill has undergone a 1.6 million pound makeover and offers good food, wines, beers and other drinks. You can choose to eat either in the family area complete with a soft play area for little ones, or the adults-only lounge, with views of Ord House's gardens and the country park beyond.

There's also a woodland dog walk that takes in just a small part of the beautiful surroundings in the park, following the perimeter of the park for 1.5 miles.

Children will enjoy the large playground at Ord House Country Park, and there's outdoor seating here, so parents can keep an eye on their children in comfort. Families might also enjoy the Crazy Golf, Table Tennis and Sand Pit.

Ball games are allowed, so Ord House is a great campsite for family holidays with teens. There's a football pitch sized area for you to have a kick around with your children, ideal for active, sporty families.

Here are some of the comments from Practical Caravan, Practical Motorhome and Caravan Sitefinder's readers, who voted Ord House into the top spot as the best campsite in North-East England.

The first reader said: "The play park is really good, and the kids loved the soft play area in the pub. The walk around the park is absolutely beautiful, too. Ord House Country Park is well worth a visit - we'll definitely be going again."

Another reader said: "We spent an extremely enjoyable three nights at Ord House Country Park. It has excellent facilities, especially for anyone with a disability, which both my husband and I have. The pitch was superb, with electric hook-up and water supply and drain, it made life really simple."

Perhaps the best thing about Ord House, though, is its location. From here you can visit Alnwick Castle, where Harry Potter was filmed. You can see Bamburgh Castle, watch baby seals at the Farne Islands, spend a day exploring Lindisfarne and visit the award-winning coastline with its spectacular beaches.

Active families might also enjoy going to the local Speedway, Berwick Bandits at Shielfield Park a short walk from the campsite.

For golfing holidays in Northumberland, Ord House is well situated for a few local golf clubs. There's Magdalene Fields Golf Club, Goswick Golf Club, Eyemouth Golf Club and Duns Golf Club.

Lovely site but the bar staff let the site down. I have been a few times and heard them bitching about each other and also about customers.

Won’t be back.

We live an hour up the road and chose here to try out the awning we bought for the caravan and do a shakedown for the season. We had stayed here before many years ago and were keen to see what had changed. It still is a fantastically clean site with great play park for kids. Touring pitches are mostly hard standing and its refreshing to see tourers near the Clubhouse not pushed to the back of the statics like allot of other sites. Good dog walk and plenty of room for the kids. The onsite bar and restaurant is lovely with entertainment at weekends. Food is decent pub grub and good portions and reasonable prices. Berwick is only 5 mins drive away, it is walk-able in 30 mins There was an onsite camping shop when we were there that was thinking of closing down. I hope it didn't as the staff were brilliant at helping me get the spares I needed for the season ahead. I got all the gas fittings for the Propane and awning spares that were missing. Staff at the Maguires reception were very helpfull

This is the second year running we have spent a week at Ord House with our tourer. Our 2 children love the site and within minutes have made new buddies; they love the freedom to go off and play and the space to play football. The site itself is beautifully kept, the grounds are immaculate. Hats off to,the grounds staff. Staff at reception are welcoming, you are provided with a useful and informative welcome pack. We opted to stay in the Orchard area. The pitches are fairly spacious, you have just room for your van, awning and car. The benefit to this area is that it is really sheltered, close enough to the play facilities but secluded from the rest of the tourer areas. TV reception is mixed and access to the free wifi provided on the site is pretty limited. Maguires, the club house on site, is pretty decent, friendly staff, the food is pretty good, reasonably priced. We ate there a couple of times, and although we were really lucky with the weather, on the odd occasion it was raining the family appreciated the pool area as a wet weather alternative to playing outdoors. What we did notice was a slight deterioration in the cleanliness of the toilet and shower block from last year. It's still "ok" given the volume of people who use it, but it is looking a bit tired. There was never any water in the mop and bucket so a few times we went for a shower and you could see that the cubicles had not been cleaned since they were last used. I suspect that this block will need upgraded before long.
On the whole though, this is a great site and we would happily return. There is loads to do in the area and if you get the weather then you have such a fantastic time.

An extremely enjoyable 3 nights at Ord House Country Park. Excellent facitlies especially for anyone with a disability, which both my husband and I have. The pitch was excellent with electric hook up and water supply and drain made life really simple. The staff were all very friendly and helpful in all departments. Superb chef preparing meals that were delightful and reasonably priced, waitresses and bar staff very friendly. Great walks for our 2 small dogs. The site was very well laid out and very clean. Shower and toilet block near to our pitch were spotless, showers were walk in suitable for older people and disabled people. Plenty play areas for children. Definitely going to become regular visitors to this site.

4.0 stars

we have visited this site alot in the past couple of years. it is a friendly welcoming site with everything you need. the toilet and shower blocks are spotless although the showers could do with updating (more powerfull). but the family bathrooms are fantastic when you have young children. all in all a great place to visit with a bar on site, a shop and food available for more stress free tea times. if i have to choose some negatives about this site it would be that it can get very busy in peak season so if you are wanting a more relaxed time this would not be our first choice. the t.v reception is poor but should be better in 2012 and although there are security cameras alot of the public come and go so not 100% safe and secure.

Myself and my family visited this site for a 10 day visit with our tourer, we found the park it self to be beautifully maintained with always someone somewhere working on tidying up the grassed or shrubbed area`s. Toilet facilities very clean and the added bonus of bath`s which our two young boys enjoyed.
The bar area was excellent for meals and the odd tipple while the location of the soft play allowed you to relax while still being able you keep an eye on the kids.
All staff around the park were extermely friendly and helpful and would take time to speak to you or answer any queries you may have from places to visit or even on the types of flowers and shrubs in the gardens.
Overall a 5 star service from a deserving 5 star park and would gladly recommend this site to anyone considering a break in the area.

We are a family with a 4 year old daughter, we've just returned from a very enjoyable weekend at Ord House. It was our first experienc e of camping and we picked a good site to try it out. The site is very clean and tidy, the toilet blocks are very clean with plenty of hot water and the staff are very helpful. Our pitch was right next to the playground, great during the day but difficult to get my daughter to sleep before 10pm! These this happen though. A five star campsite and well recommended.

My family and I started going to Ord in 2003 with an old tourer, we found the park to be very clean, with curteous friendly staff and are still there to date, having upgraded to a static van. Ord House is a family friendly site, the owners (Billy & Julie) are very nice as are the staff. the park is well kept and certainly deserves all of its awards, the washrooms are always kept spotless(thanks Viv), the clubhouse is fab (we frequent it regularly) and we have made many friends some of whom will be lifelong friends.
All in all a child friendly welcoming park well worth a visit or longer stay. I give this park a 5* rating but would like to give it 10.

Having visited Ord House on many occasions. The standards have always been superb, staff are very welcoming and friendly. pitches fully serviced with 16 amps and spacious and within easy reach of the facilities. The toilet facilities are spotless, warm and cater for all our requirements. Club serves great great meals and is very comfotable and friendly.
