The natural choice - Springhouse Country Park

99c71ebd-92eb-48c1-abc0-f0221d299dc7
IMAGINE setting off on a Friday evening and arriving at your luxury holiday home before the sun goes down. Then relax, unwind, enjoy a glass of wine and watch the squirrels play in amongst the trees.

Springhouse is open for 11 months, so you can spend as much time in your home as you want. In summer you could base yourself there, even commuting to work, content that your family is enjoying a luxury lifestyle in a safe and healthy environment.

Nestling in a peaceful and pictur-esque forest with lots of wildlife and a variety of scenic walks, Springhouse is a beautiful retreat where you can choose a holiday home as comfortable and well-equipped as your own home.

There’s no compromise on quality – each home is beautifully fitted and furnished, with all the space you need to enjoy weekends, holidays or longer stays. Caravan holiday homes start from as little as £9,995 fully sited and there are some lovely pitches available with views towards Slaley Forest.

Peace and tranquillity can be enjoyed in the immediate surroundings. Alter-natively, there are close links to Hexham, Newcastle and the North-umberland National Park.


FOR SALE


As well as vacant plots, a new 2010 Victory Ventura is available at £32,500, and a new Victory Vision at £29,995 (both 35x12 2 bed). Pre-owned homes include a 2005 ABI Brisbane 35x12 2 bed, £24,995; and a 1993 Atlas Chorus 32x12 2 bed, £11,995. ‘Try before you buy’ weekends are available, and the
park will arrange a VIP Tour on request.
