Fam­ily-run for gen­er­a­tions to come

Scottish Field - - RETIREMENT LIVING -

Ann and Hed­ley Lamb bought Bar­moor Cas­tle in 1979 and then spent 11 years trans­form­ing the ne­glected cas­tle grounds to make it into a beau­ti­ful hol­i­day park. They both agreed that the 20ft statu­tory space be­tween pitches was not enough, so they cre­ated a park with more gen­er­ous spac­ing be­tween pitches than their com­peti­tors. With a vi­sion to cre­ate a park par­al­lel to none, the fam­ily worked tire­lessly to cre­ate a stun­ning hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion, full of trees, wildlife, and qual­ity hol­i­day homes.

Nearly 30 years on, Bar­moor Cas­tle is a stun­ning coun­try park, still run by the Lamb fam­ily, with baby Fred­die, the new­est ad­di­tion, mark­ing the next gen­er­a­tion for Bar­moor Cas­tle. Sadly Hed­ley Lamb died in 2011 but Ann, Jamie and his wife Jodi have con­tin­ued to run the park.

Guests love the peace and tran­quil­ity it of­fers - over 200 acres of rolling Northum­brian coun­try­side, in the breath­tak­ing area be­tween the stun­ning Northum­ber­land coast­line and the spec­tac­u­lar Che­viot Hills.

The park is con­stantly evolv­ing and run with an am­bi­tion for ex­cel­lence – a brand new build­ing, aptly named Hed­ley Hall, has re­cently been com­pleted in the grounds and is go­ing to host lo­cal ex­hi­bi­tions and run classes for the guests to take part in.

There is a wide range of hol­i­day homes and lux­ury car­a­vans avail­able to suit ev­ery taste. You can choose a sea view, coun­try­side view or cas­tle view, shaded plot or in di­rect sun­light.

If you’re look­ing for a spe­cial place to buy a hol­i­day home, def­i­nitely visit Bar­moor Cas­tle Coun­try Park. It re­ally is a hol­i­day park par­al­lel to none. And as the Lamb fam­ily have good work­ing re­la­tion­ships with renowned man­u­fac­tur­ers, they are able to of­fer the lat­est hol­i­day homes at some of the very best prices.
