Welcome to Byreside Caravan site
OPEN ALL YEAR
Byreside Caravan Site
is situated on a family run farm in the historic Derwent Valley. Here
you will find facilities and interests to suit the whole family.
As the site is quiet
and secluded wildlife abounds. Birds of all kinds may be seen in the
woods and those with sharp eyes may see foxes or deer. Red Kites
may also be seen in the skies above Byreside. Walkers and cyclists can step
onto the Derwent Walk Country Park from the Caravan Site and link up
to the Waskerley Way or Lanchester Valley Walk.
History looms large
in the district and the caravan site is within easy reach of Ebchester
and its Roman Museum. Close by is Derwentcote Blast Furnace, a relic
from the Industrial Revolution. At Tanfield Railway steam locomotives
are in operation on most summer weekends. Nearby is Causey Arch, reputed
to be the world's oldest railway bridge. Gibside Chapel, the mausoleum
of the Bowes family, lies down the valley from Byreside.
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
hours drive from Byreside will take visitors to Hadrians Wall, Weardale, Newcastle or
