Nunnykirk Caravan Site


This lovely setting is just South West of Rothbury and nestled next to the Font River. It is the first ‘big’ site we have used – 84 pitches – and we had some reservations as to how we would like it. It has turned out very well, possibly because we are out of season. They were full over the Easter weekend but most people had left by the time we arrived on Easter Monday.


David and Shirley’s motor home is on the right here and we are on the left. Rather fun having relatives ‘across the road’.  The pitches are all grass which we like as it gives a less regimented feel to the site. That was a slight problem when we arrived as the ground was very muddy and vehicles were getting bogged down, which is why we are parked so close to the road. That is not a criticism of the site but a moan about the weather – which has cleared up steadily since we arrived.

Several miles from the nearest shops, this site would not suit all, but a fish and chip van arrives on Friday evening, a butcher delivers on Saturday and modern caravans have fridges so it is not such a problem. The only drawback for us was the lack of mobile phone signal. It is strange when you think that we would not have considered that important five years ago but it feels strange being out of touch.


Most people using the site have dogs – in fact we feel caninely challenged in only having one! The dedicated dog walk shown here is well used.



Peaceful, beautiful countryside, Impeccable facilities, the caravaners are as friendly as we have found elsewhere. A site we would recommend. We liked it enough to extend our stay till Wednesday.
