Great site if your walking the wall.

Its backpackers only (no vehicles).

A very basic but fully functional toilet and shower block with plenty of hot water.

It was very busy when we stayed, probably around 30 campers on site but the facilities were enough to cope.

I wouldn't bother with the George across the road as its a bit stuck up but the crown is only 5 mins walk away where you can drink and share tips with other walkers.

The breakfast was an added bonus in the morning.

This site was our second night's stop while walking Hadrian's Wall (from East to West). I cannot fault it. The prices were reasonable, the field excellent (although it was part sloping which could be a problem if busy), and the facilities very suited to walkers. The cafe is great for breakfast too unless you set off very early. There is a pub in the village about a mile walk from the campsite.

Perfect for overnight stay while walking Hadrian's wall. Site right in the centre of Chollerford. Owner operates Cafe by the Garage during the day, out of hours enquire at the bungalow. We were told they only take backpackers on the site.

The facilities are great, with a spotless, purpose built shower and toilet block. Camping field is well kept but rather large if it really is just for backpackers.

2 nearby pubs, The George just over the Road and The Crown about 1 mile away. Chesters Roman fort is just about 1 mile away also. Cafe opens at 9 for breakfast and to get you on your way on the next leg. 5 per night

This campsite is located in the picturesque village of Chollerford, and on the route of the Hadrian's Wall path.

There is a cafe here, plus basic facilities (toilet, shower). Unfortunately, the dryer was not connected, but I didn't really need it.

The owners were sufficiently friendly and accommodating; campground booking took place in the cafe, and outside of cafe hours you need to go and knock on the bungalow door. (Took me a while to work that out!).

There's a pub over the road; didn't investigate it, but it looks nice enough.

I spent the night at this site whilst doing the Hadrian's Wall Path. It is ideally located right alongside the path close to the Chollerford Bridge.

The site has three toilets and a good shower, along with an area to clean dishes, all of which are kept clean. I don't recall there being any specific play area. Attached to the site is some tea rooms and a garage which has a small shop.

Within 20 minutes walking distance is the Roman fort of Chesters along with sections of the wall across the North Tyne near the Brunton Turret.

If you're doing the path and intending to see Chesters bear in mind that it does not open until 10am and the site is at most 30 minutes walk away, so its no point getting up really early that day!

Stayed one night while walking the wall. This site is on the trail so very handy. Shower block, toilets clean and good quality. Friendly and helpful owners. The cafe is there for brekkie and packed lunches but it shuts at 4pm. Posh pub across the road we felt a bit tired and dirty for but a lovely pub about half a mile up the road. The dogs were quiet for us. It is right by a road and the weir on the river is close, but neither particularly noisy.
