The county of Northumberland is blessed with many dog-friendly days out and miles of walking trails and footpaths that your four-legged friend will love. Conveniently close to our caravan parks in Northumberland, there are plenty of woofly experiences to discover!
Despite the unpredictable UK weather, there are a wealth of dog-friendly things to do near our caravan parks in Northumberland that cover indoor and outdoor activities depending on what you fancy getting up to.
Dogs are welcome on the grounds of many of Northumberland’s historic castles, roman forts and country houses. However, we advise checking any restrictions with these places individually before you visit to avoid disappointment.
Calling all bookworms! No trip to the market town of Alwnick is complete without a visit to Barter Books to check out the biggest collection of antiquarian books in the UK. With so much to explore, you could easily spend half a day wandering this fascinating find.
Dogs are also welcome here and there’s even a dog-friendly section of the cafe inside where you can relax and enjoy a bite to eat with your pooch.
Located just a few miles off the Northumberland coast, Holy Island is a must-see!
There is the opportunity to drive, walk or cycle over the dramatic causeway to Holy Island when it is safe to do so and we recommend checking out the safe crossing times for this.
Although your four-legged friend won’t be allowed in the 16th-century Lindisfarne Castle itself, there will be staff on-hand to watch them while you take in the history of the fascinating rooms and artefacts.
The first building ever to be lit by hydroelectricity is now a National Trust property called Cragside Estate. Located a mile or so outside Rothbury, Cragside was the home of Lord Armstrong who was a Victorian inventor and industrialist.
Aside from the main house itself, there are over 30 miles of paths for you and your dog to enjoy on a family day out to Cragside Estate. Dogs are welcome on the estate but must be kept on a lead at all times and are not allowed in the National Trust shop, cafe or toilets.
There are plenty of picnic areas and outdoor seating if you wish to bring a prepared lunch with you to tuck into on a warm summer’s day.
An iconic of the Northumberland shoreline, our caravan parks in Northumberland are very fortunate to hold a position so close to the magnificent Bamburgh Castle. Having been the film set for many blockbuster films, it cannot go a miss on your Northumberland itinerary.
Although dogs aren’t allowed in the fine estate rooms of Bamburgh Castle or the Clock Tower Tea Room, they are still allowed on castle grounds and inside Tack Room Cafe, Armstrong & Aviation Museum and the Victorian Stables.
Following your visit to the historic castle, take a brisk walk along the sandy shores of Bamburgh Beach. If you really fancy stretching your legs, set off from Bamburgh to Seahouses, which is roughly a 3-mile walk. Whatever the season, make sure you wrap up!
