About Finchale Abbey Holiday Lodge Site and Touring Park

Finchale Abbey is a family run Touring Park in County Durham UK that has been with the family since the year 1951. 


Finchale Abbey Holiday Park and Touring Site is set in the heart of the beautiful County Durham countryside, the park lies within a meander of the River Wear and overlooks the ruins of the Benedictine Finchale Priory. 

In 2006 we started transforming the static caravan park into a fully residential park home eco village with log cabins and hard standing touring pitches a farm house cafe and the new activities lodge and bushcraft shop along with a new apple grove and bee hives as we know make our own honey and a top dog walking are through wild medows and woodland.

The peace and tranquility of the Adult Only Touring Park encourages visitors from all over the world to return time and again.


The park is ideally situated for visiting all of Co Durham's high lights and historical sites, being less than an hours drive from Sea, Dales, Moor lands, Towns and Cities and only four miles from the historic city of Durham and 7 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne. We're also lucky to be close to the fantastic Beamish Museum a must for a visit to the area.


On site we have our new adult activiteis lodge and bushcraft store ran by Northern Wilderness Bushcraft School.They have difrent activities on each weekend. You can take part in archery, canoeing or a spot of wild life photography, maybe basket weaving or bee keeping is more your thing or how about hand carving a kukska cup or wooden spoons. You can also take part in there many courses such as gold panning, bushcraft intoduction days or just a spot of fishing. 

We are proud to announce that we have recently been awarded the Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award for helping to enhance and protect our natural environment.


Finchale Abbey is also home to one of the North East premier residential parks, the number of lodges on site aimed at retired and semi-retired couples and singles is growing steadily and although there are still a few plots still available for bespoke lodges to be designed and built there are also a few fully sited lodges for sale.
