Byreside Caravan Site is quiet and secluded, located on a family run farm in the historic Derwent Valley. Birds and nature of all kinds may be seen so keep an eye out for Red Kites, foxes and deer. Walkers and cyclists have easy access from the site to the Derwent Walk Country Park which links up to the Waskerley Way or Lanchester Valley Walk. Plenty of history in the area within easy reach with Ebchester and its Roman Museum, plus the Derwentcote Blast Furnace, a relic from the Industrial Revolution. Nearby is Causey Arch, reputed to be the world's oldest railway bridge, and on most summer weekends see the Tanfield Railway steam locomotives in operation. Further down the valley is Gibside Chapel, the mausoleum of the Bowes family. The site has 31 hard standing pitches. Electric points on all pitches.
Within 8 miles of Byreside lies Beamish Open-Air Museum of international repute. This wonderful museum needs more than a single visit to be appreciated. A 15-minute drive along the A694 brings the visitor to the Gateshead Metro Centre, one of Europe's biggest indoor shopping venues. Less than an hour’s drive from Byreside will take visitors to Hadrians Wall, Weardale, Newcastle or Durham.
