There’s no shortage of sightseeing in the area around Percy Wood, starting with Morpeth town in the neighbouring area, where nothing’s more fun than poking around the boutique and vintage shops.

For history and culture buffs looking at where to stay in Northumberland, Harrison Holidays’ park is very close to the very unique Holy Island of Lindisfarne, a protected site with stunning views of the area. A walk along the beach to reach this island is lovely, or you can stretch your legs out on the sand of nearby Druridge Beach, which has a country park and wonderful wildlife of its own. For a step back into English history, we recommend a visit to the Victorian Cragside, set in a stunning rock garden and 1,700 acres of wooded ground and parkland. If you’re visiting the area, a picnic and stroll here is a must. And don’t forget the intriguing Bamburgh Castle, just a short trip away from Percy Wood and steeped in hundreds of years of history.
With plenty to do and some of the best views around, Northumberland is the perfect place to staycation this season. Why not make Percy Wood your destination?
