 Very well kept site. Lovely setting and ideal for walking Hadrian's Wall

Facilities spotless, modern and well maintained.

Would highly recommend. Our only slight gripe would be the poor internet. Not that much of an issue!

 This is a very clean site with 5* toilet/ shower block that was great as it has a separate family room which meant my husband could take our 5 year old girl and 9 year old boy at the same time to get washed/showered etc. There was also 2 baths with showers in in the ladies shower room which meant we could wash all the sand off the children easily from our coastal visits.

There was lots of nice touches at this site - like dog water and a hook to attach dog lead to at the toilet block, washing up liquid and drying rack at the pots washing area. There was also lots of nice animals on site - but due to covid there wasn't the normal feeding and also it had a play area which was closed. There was also a well stocked shop. A big disappointment was there wasn't really a big flat field area where the boys could play football which usually they do lots of on campsites.

Near to the site we had great wood fired pizza at the Twice Brewed Inn, lovely food at the Black Bull.

It was fairly quiet in the morning apart from one morning which meant we could stay in bed till 7. 30/8am which is a must for me - although the donkey does eeyore at around 7. 30-8am!

For us - even though facilities were great - it was just too far from all the things we wanted to see in northumberland (apart from Hadrien's wall!). Also Haltwhistle seems to have its own weird microclimate which had a dark cloud over a lot of the time - as soon as we travelled away in the car each day the blue sky would come out! If we could move the site - we would definitely go again!

 Without a doubt then nicest campsite I have ever stayed at.

The amenities were immaculate and the staff were all so friendly.

We had a number of amazing walks from the campsite and walked into Haltwhistle a couple of times.

The fire pit was a wonderful addition to sit around. The bbq sausages and burgers purchased from the shop were very high quality and tasty!

The campsite is in a beautiful location and I would highly recommend! Thank you!

 As others have said, this is a really lovely, well kept and friendly site.

You can walk 1/2 mile or so uphill from it to Hadrian's Wall which is definitely worth visiting. Vindolanda (Roman excavation site) is also walkable and one of the best, and best-explained, historical sites we have visited.

The llamas (alpacas?), donkey, chickens and rabbits on the site make for an interestingly nice ambience, and we fell asleep to the gentle sound of sheep chewing the cud immediately the other side of the drystone wall from our pitch.

 Lovely site and extremely well kept. Ideal for Hadrians Wall and the other great countryside.

Although due to covid there were a few restrictions, things such as the on site animals and small shop enhance the site.

Pitch size and facilities all great.

 Fantastic camp and caravan site, 100% the best one Iíve been to. The grounds were lovely and well maintained and it was lovely being able to walk round and see the animals. The gentleman who greeted us was very welcoming too.

The shower and toilet facilities we really clean and modern, I would return and also recommend to friends and family. 😀

Haltwhistle itself was a great little village, we visited 2 pubs which both had beer gardens and a great atmosphere. The walk back to the campsite is a big climb! We did this twice and didnít see anyone else walking up it, we shouldíve tried to time it better with the bus! Also within a 30 minutes drive away is GoApe (Matfen) we visited this and had a great day, so thereís plenty to do around the site but remote enough to enjoy the countryside.

 Stayed at this site for 2 nights to visit relatives in Haltwhistle.

The campsite is immaculate and well kept by the owners/wardens.

Extra measures put in place due to coronavirus and we felt comfortable during our stay.

Pitch was lovely and level, facilities were immaculate, although we did use our own shower and there are 2 baths in the ladies block! Owner very friendly and takes pride in the site.

The site has llamas, a donkey, chickens and a pig so great for kids to see them up close. Next to a quiet road just outside the town but a walk down the hill takes you into Haltwhistle or you can walk up the hill, turn left and follow the burn walk into town.

Great for cycling too and cycle path runs through the town.

Site has pods and hot tubs too.

Would definitely revisit.

Reviewer: Davidgosling 4 reviews from this member

 Had to cut short our stay here but we were there long enough to be sufficiently impressed to want to return some time.

A relatively small site. We had one of the 3 fully serviced hard standing pitches which was a bit limited in length - our 7. 2ms motorhome only just fitted on - but of adequate width.

We did not use the toilet/shower block so cannot comment upon it. There is a dog walk on site which is basically a track fenced off so at least you can let your dog off the lead.

The main attraction of the site is its location within walking distance of Haltwhistle although it is quite a climb on the way back but it is a nice walk across the fields. Alternatively, you can catch the bus back which stops outside the site entrance and which you can also catch to places along Hadrianís Wall which is only a short distance away ( again which can be walked ).

Reviewer: Taraandkellie 1 review from this member

 Where do I start. Itís been the first time we have brought the 3 children to this site and we canít thank them enough. Their hospitality is second to none! And have went above and beyond to ensure that my 10 year old non verbal autistic boy had just as much fun as my other children during activities the whole stay.

From feeding the animals, arts and crafts, and the allocation of our pitch (right next to the park to ensure we could supervise with giving freedom)

Ordered the beautiful home made pizzas on our first night and they were cooked to our requirements as asked for, my son who has to have it cooked a certain way and advised it would be no issue at all, to return them to reception and they would be cooked till they were perfected.

All staff are so friendly and canít do enough to help, asking for suggestions in anyways to improve things for children like Archie.

The site is immaculate, well kept,

Toilets And showers (with baths) are 5* and the views are unbelievable.

This is our favourite site and will be booking up more from now on.

 Beautiful site and very clean facilities. Staff are very friendly. Our 4 year old loved feeding the animals on site and learning about them and playing in the play area.

Lovely touch of pizza made on site and delivered to your pitch very nice. Would def recommend. Haltwhistle have a leisure centre with open air pools brilliant for warm weather.

We didnít really venture off site much but plenty of walks to do around the area. Bus stop straight outside site as well.
