Bobby Shafto Caravan Park – Local Attractions

We are fortunate in Beamish to be surrounded by old world charming country pubs and at the same time modern restaurants – competitively priced to suit everyone’s pocket.

Nearby are the historic cities of Durham, Newcastle and Sunderland, and travelling east to the splendid coast of South Shields, the home of authoress Catherine Cookson.
