Owner Directions

If you are towing a caravan please do not follow your Sat Nav as this may take you up Shield Hill from Haltwhistle, which is extremely steep for a caravan.

Travelling from the east on the A69 continue past Haltwhistle and after approximately 3 miles you will see a right turn to Greenhead. After 100 meters turn right at the junction of the B6318 and after 3 miles you will then pick up our brown tourist sign at the Milecastle Inn.

From the West also take the Greenhead turn off the A69.
