Explore Golden Sands or Relax in a Picturesque Woodland Haven

Set within 18 acres of woodlands, in close proximity to the rugged coastline and historic county city of Durham, Castledene Holiday Park is a peaceful, secluded haven of tranquillity.

This is a holiday home with a unique character - whilst being conveniently located just off the A19 at Castle Eden, the site is a charming, picturesque, yet hidden gem. As the area around Castledene has been designated an area of scientific interest due to its impressive array of plant species and wildlife habitats, this is the perfect location for those wishing to explore the archaeological history of the area, spend time on the county’s wonderful beaches or simply relax in the undisturbed surroundings of a woodland holiday home retreat.

A Holiday Park That's Rich in Natural Beauty

Any stay at Castledene would certainly not be complete without a visit to the nearby Castle Eden Dene National Nature Reserve.  Noted for being the largest natural woodland in Britain, this 220 hectare woodland and grassland area is home to the endangered red squirrel, roe deer and badger as well as a multitude of exquisite plants, flowers and grasses.  In summer months, the fragrant flowering of the orchids is a particular attraction as is the rock rose within the grassland areas.

Scenic Walks for Budding Photographers

With over 12 miles of public walkways, there are hiking and walking routes to cater for all fitness levels and degrees of difficulty whilst taking in both the geographical and historical features of the reserve.  In fact, specific parts have remained intact for more than 10,000 years – the spectacular limestone cliffs and gorges, for example.

A further area of natural beauty is the Durham Heritage Coast, an 11 mile pathway stretching from Seaham to Crimdon, and forming a route along breath taking scenery and panoramic views across the North Sea.  The lively harbour town of Seaham is particularly renowned for its dramatic cliff top location views of the harbour and sandy beach below, but also has a heritage and visitor centre as well as a wide variety of cafes, restaurants bars.

Durham itself is a fascinating combination of cultural heritage, natural landscaped beauty spots and quaint retail facilities.  Why not climb the 300+ stairs of the Cathedral tower and reward yourself with a 200ft high view of the local landscape?

Find it Hard to Stay Away From the Shops?

For those wishing to indulge in a little retail and leisure therapy, Dalton Park, the biggest outlet shopping centre in not just Durham, but the North East and is only a ten minute drive up the A19 at Murton, County Durham. Here you’ll find over 200 brands and designer labels including high street favourites, M&S and Next.  There’s also a wide selection of food outlets and a seven-screen Cineworld cinema.

Hartlepool, with its multi-million pound marina complex, golden beaches, entertainment venues, supermarket and shopping developments is 20 minutes away, and for lovers of the ‘beautiful game’ the town even has its own football league club, Hartlepool United.

Castledene Holiday Park and its nearby towns are areas rich in natural beauty with far more to offer than a short synopsis can give justice to. The diversity of its beaches, woodland, unusual species of flowers, endangered animals, insects and birds as well as its historic and archaeological features, retail and leisure facilities are sure to please those keen to explore, discover new places and learn more about the natural environment.  With cycling, fishing, golfing, horse riding, sailing, watersports, theme parks, restaurants and shopping in close proximity, we think it’s safe to say there really is something for everyone!

    Make Your Stay a Memorable One

    One of the top 40 best beaches in the UK, as chosen by The Telegraph, Hartlepool’s North Sands has a lot to offer. Not only was it one of the first shorelines to be selected as part of the “England Coast Path”, but if you can time your stay at Castledene caravan park with a low tide, we can guarantee you’ll enjoy one of the best walks across the North East.

    Think of yourself as an amateur photographer, or just like taking pictures of fantastic sights? Why not take a trip to the derelict Steeley Pier where the cliffs still glow yellow with magnesium limestone.
