Village Green Holiday Park is a quiet and friendly place for all, but the relaxing countryside atmosphere doesn’t suggest a lack of fun. Whether its excitement or relaxation you’re looking for, we know of some great activities just around the corner.


1. North Pennines E-Bikes

To take in the outstanding beauty of the moorlands, there’s no better way to do it than on an e-bike. Highly recommended by locals and visitors, touring the Derwent Reservoir and visiting Blanchland on an e-bike is one of the most popular ways to spend time in and around Edmundbyers.

E-bike touring takes less effort than conventional bike journeys, giving you the energy to go further on a trip full of breath-taking sights, delightful food and once in a lifetime encounters. It’s a great way for you and your family or friends to fill up the day when in Edmundbyers.

To hire an e-bike, visit the Old Village Shop in Edmundbyers or the Post Office in nearby Blanchland. Each e-bike hire includes a helmet, tyre pump, bike lock, charger, route map and a pannier to store it all.


2. Allout Adventure

Once you’ve seen the sights and you’re looking for something fun to do, make your way to Allout Adventure just seven miles north of Edmundbyers, past the Derwent Reservoir. Located in the Slaley countryside, Allout Adventure is an outdoor activity centre focused on outdoor recreational activities and wellness.

Have you ever wanted to roar over sandy dunes on a quadbike or learn how to throw a hatchet? That’s what Allout Adventure is about. With archery classes and clay pigeon shooting, quadbiking and paintball, Allout adventure has something that appeals to everyone. Each session is overseen by a fully qualified instructor, so you’ll be in safe hands while enjoying the many activities they have on offer.
