Stonehaugh is a quiet and relaxed rural site situated in the stunning Northumberland National Park between Kielder Water, Hadrians Wall and Hexham. Only an hours drive from Newcastle, it is set amongst beautiful moorland on the edge of Wark Forest. Ideal for walking, cycling and touring.
We aim to provide a quiet and relaxed Campsite where you can enjoy the natural countryside of Northumberland.
The area offers some of the best dark skies in England where you can observe the stars in stunning detail.
The quiet village of Stonehaugh (pronounced Stone-hoff) was designed in 1951 as a village for Forestry Commission workers at the time that Wark Forest was being planted.
