Stayed here for 3 nights for the Persoids. This was perfect for us as when it got dark we had a fantastic view.

If you turn left when you come out the campsite, there's a pub along the road, not far to walk, just remember to take a torch as walking back its very dark. My hubby had a head lamp.

The pub if you turn right from the campsite is quite away to walk

The site caters for a variety of people no matter how big or small your tent or vehicle is and they welcome hikers as well

The showers and toilets are top rate when it has been a rainy and windy night. My Husband and I found this a welcome relief

There are two porta loos which we used during the night, as it is quite a walk to the toilets in the shower block.

There were a few picnic tables dotted around, we dragged one to where we were camped

Bins for rubbish were within easy reach

We only used the shop once when we got there to buy milk. The cafe had a few tables in it

The owner came round on a morning and said hello One time he asked if we were okay as it was quite hairy on the Saturday night with the wind and rain

Now we have been to this site twice and both times we really enjoyed it

Although this is a fairly basic campsite, we chose it for it's beautiful setting near to Hadrian's Wall and although the site is alongside the Military Road, this wasn't a problem for us, we hardly noticed the traffic. The views of the surrounding countryside were spectacular and we initially intended to stay for a week but unfortunately we had to leave after one night because of a noisy group of young people, drinking and playing loud music into the night! Such a shame that a few can spoil it for the many and go unchecked!

Very pleased with service. I arrived at about 1900hrs after a gruelling hike. Owners of site were very friendly and pleased to see me. Very good facilities and welcome. Hot showers. Very family friendly and has some outstanding views and walks. Toilets are kept clean every day. Owner has a ride around on his quad bike in the mornings to see if everyone is ok. Good pub only a few yards away, does top bar meals. Also good access to various parts of the wall including steel rigg, sycamore gap and housteads.

When we first arrived we handed in money for our group but felt like our reception was not the warmest and owners seemed unsure. Facilities were okay they were open through the night and were fairly clean, shower was a decent size. The pub down the road was useful as we were able to go out and it was a great place to watch the football and have a drink. The camping field was a good size and we were able to play with the football that they provided which was good. Overall the cafe was fairly expensive so probably should have avoided that and we did not see the owners a lot, I may return but I do think I can find better.

Great little site just off Hadrian's Wall and perfect whilst trekking the HW path. Camping field near to main road, although not too busy at night.

Toilet, shower and other facilities shared with small bunkhouse, but all spotless. Lovely shower, very welcome after a wet day walking. Drying room on site, brilliant for those wet clothes.

Owners are very welcoming and operate a small cafe on site where you can get a breakfast etc. Twice Brewed Inn a short walk away for your evening meal and entertainment. £6 per night.

Stayed for 2 nights over the Jubilee weekend with my family and had a lovely time. The site was very welcoming and although quite basic, perfect for what we wanted. There is plenty of space with 3 good sized fields and although there were limited amenities for both male and females we never had to wait for bathroom space.

Haltwhistle is only a 5-10min drive down the road with good shopping facilities for supplies. We had a trip to Hexham which was lovely also and roughly 20mins drive.

Hadrian’s wall is a 1/2 mile walk up the footpath at the side of the camp and I believe is at its highest peak with breath-taking views of the surrounding countryside!

The Twice brewed pub down the road is a perfect place to keep warm in the early evening. Drinks were reasonable although we found the menu to be quite pricey and therefore chose not to eat there.

I would definitely go back, great value for money, friendly staff and fab location.
