For a fun family holiday in the North East then Crimdon Dene should be high on your list. This friendly and welcoming holiday park is located in Northumberland and is within easy reach of some fantastic days out. From Hartlepool Marina to the historic city of Durham there are some memorable places to visit within a half hour drive from the park.
Of course you may not even wish to leave the park itself as there is so much going on! The heated indoor pool with Spa Bath is a real highlight and keeps the whole family entertained. For the more active then the all weather sports courts offer a great place to burn off energy and learn new skills.
For 5-11 year olds there's the Kids Club which is a fantastic place for children to make new friends and try out some new activities. Adults can have a well deserved rest safe in the knowledge that the kids are happy. The outdoor play area is also a popular choice for the little ones.
When you want a bit to eat or a relaxing drink then head for the Boathouse Restaurant and Bar. Serving delicious meals and light bites there's something for every taste. The Ocean Edge Entertainment Centre is also a great place to hang out. Don't miss the Sparky's Krew Shows!
Accommodation at Crimdon Dene is a great choice of caravans. For excellent value we love the Crimdon Bronze models. For extra luxury opt for one of the Crimdon Gold caravans. Being 12ft wide they offer more space and heating throughout. All of the caravans have two or three bedrooms and are well equipped for self catering UK holidays.

The caravan we stayed in could not have been nicer, it was pristine and looked as though it had never been used, very spacious and comfortable. as tent campers usually it was pure luxury to have a heated caravan! all cutlery, crockery and pans were provided, there was a small but amply sized fridge freezer we were delighted with the van and would highly recommend it.

Upon arrival we reported that the T.V .was not working properly.it was not fixed before our departure
