Newby Bridge Caravan Park

Accessibility guide

At Newby Bridge Country Caravan Park we want to provide an enjoyable experience to everyone and are committed to providing as much information about our current facilities and future plans as we can.

The Park covers some 25 acres, parts of which are completely undeveloped and form a natural habitat for many forms of wildlife. Accommodation on the Park consists of six self-catering caravans and one lodge and one cottage. The majority of the Holiday Homes on the Park are privately owned.
