 Though site in a very isolated location this site, as others have said is total luxury with a very fast, free wifi.

The walk to Hadrians Wall, past the Milecastle pub, is about 20 mins. The Milecastle pub itself about 10 min walk though a steep walk back after food and drinks, the food here is mainly pub grub though there is a restaurant annex, it also does a couple of nice north east real ales.

The AD 122 bus stops outside the site which was handy for a tour around the historical sites as well as visiting the Twice Brewed Inn to finish off the day.

 WOW what a site! Absolute luxury!

The managers Phil & Sue and all of the wardens were amazing, so helpful and friendly and really made us feel cared for.

Their Covid 19 awareness and measures were fabulous, as we have been shielding we found this so reassuring and enabled us to truly relax and feel safe.

The facilities were spotlessly clean and modern. Heated floors in the bathrooms made bathing feel luxurious.

Low level mirrors for children to see themselves were really thoughtful.

Baths and showers were available, the water pressure was good and the water stayed consistently hot.

The communal room offered indoor dishwashing facilities, heated floor, tables and chairs, reasonably priced vending machines and fantastic information and books.

The laundry room had a washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board and iron available.

The wifi was high speed and the TV signal was good.

The cabins, hot tubs and luxurious pods, sauna and BBQ hut all look fabulous, what a great place to holiday with family and friends!

The animals were a delight to see and are very well cared for.

Walking from the site was easy, a small bit of road walking on a very quiet road, beautiful views and so much more to see in the area which will keep on drawing us back to this site.

 Outstanding in every way. Efficient and warm pre-stay communication and welcome on arrival.

Wonderful warm and clean modern facilities, hot showers and excellent sauna as a bonus.

The location is beautiful and peaceful, set in the midst of the Northumbrian hills and almost right on Hadrianís Wall for those looking to explore it.

Canít recommend it more highly.

 One of the best sites that we have been to.

A brill bonus is that you could get a bath after a long hike up the Fells!

Nothing really to dislike except need to approach from above as very nasty hills coming from A69 area.

 The facilities were brilliant as were the staff, we had a hard standing pitch with plenty of room.

As stated it is on a hill which is quite steep down to Haltwhistle but access to Hadrian's wall was ideal with a bus stop just outside the campsite which has stops along the wall.

The local pub the Milecastle Inn was brilliant for food but worthwhile booking a table. Although we didn't have children, the petting area looked fun also the play area.

All in all we had a wonderful stay.

 This is a small campsite, very friendly wardens,

The shower/amenities are excellent showers can be controlled for temperature and flow,

For families there are farm animals to meet, there is a very large area for dog exercise there is a small shop for essentials.

The site is easy walking distance to Hadrians wall and about 25min walk into Haltwhistle.

Excellent 10 out of 10

 Stayed here walking Hadrian wall. Just off the wall but worth going to. We did not book as backpacking and never sure how far or not we get. However during covid best to book, however staff did allow for us.

Flat grass with excellent wash block, laundry ( coins) a small room with microwave and vending machines dishwashing.

This more a luxury campsite with licensed shop and a pub 800 m away.

Price seems fixed with or without car / electric so not backpacking prices.

Would highly recommend

 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!

Reviewer: Fitkid 2 reviews from this member

 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!
