Reviewer: Hoggie16 1 review from this member

I wanted to review this site since the last review was some time ago and wanted to give an update. We stayed in a tent and the pitch area was nice and flat and had a few wooden tables and benches for campers use. Unfortunately, we pitched near one which was a bit rickety so we were tentative about using the stove on it. Martin, the owner, did warn us that it was 'past its best' though. The facilities are pretty decent - a wooden lodge is used as a base for toilets and showers - there are two complete bathrooms, one has a bath with shower over it, one has a shower unit. Both bathrooms have a toilet and washbasin. There is also a separate toilet. The showers were nice and hot but I think the bathrooms could have done with a bit of a clean up; but that could just be down to scruffy backpackers. When you come into the lodge there is a long, rectangular table and chairs and anyone can come in and just rest up in there if the weather is unpleasant. There are some electrical points which can be used for recharging GPS, ipads etc. There is a pub, The Drovers Rest 5 minutes walk away - its a really lovely place with good food and real ale for those who are enthusiasts (we aren't and stuck to Fosters). As for location, Hadrians Wall Lodges is in a good spot for those, like us, walking the Hadrians Wall trail. It's a 5. 5 mile walk to Carlisle through Grinsdale to do that bit of the wall. We did this walk in both directions a few times but there are buses available Mon-Sat if you only want to do it in one direction. The walk from Beaumont to Bowness on Solway is about 9-10 miles and takes in St Michael's Church in Burgh By Sands - it is made from stone from Hadrians Wall and well worth a visit. There is also a memorial to Edward I in Burgh which you pass on the road so keep your camera handy. All in All Hadrians Wall Lodges is a steal at 5 per adult per night; a backpackers favourite judging by the regular visitors over the 3 nights we were there.

Stayed four nights april 2016, camping in own tent, very helpful owner, facilities great, ideal for backpackers and walkers, does accommodate large tents ( as was ours ) but I suggest to ring and book in high season as I can imagine it can get full quickly, if you want peace, quiet, walks, fires, and a pub 100 yards down the road, this is the campsite for you ! great stay, thankyou martin

We stayed in the 'shieling' which is a two room cabin. Twin bedroom, small bathroom, kitchen/diner area with double futon type sofabed. Everything was impeccably clean and worked as it should. We were told to just ask if we wanted more blankets etc but they weren't needed. We've also stayed in the 'wigwams' in the past, again clean and fully equipped.

The common areas are well looked after with good baths and showers and a supply of boardgames etc.

There's a good pub nearby and the Hadrian's wall shuttle bus goes past the end of the road. The wall path itself is a short walk from the site.

This isn't a site for a long stay in my opinion but as a place to sleep for a night or three when walking the wall it's ideal in my opinion.

Barbecues/fires are allowed and can be borrowed if you don't have one with you.

Great little 'backpackers' campsite. Warm facilities such as a breakfast room and a chill out room. The facilities are clean and tidy.

There's plenty of space to pitch, and the grounds are well looked after.

It is out in the sticks, with a bus service every two hours or so each way. Also, bring food and snacks along with you, there isn't anywhere to top on for snacks etc although the local pub has a tub chocolates to purchase!

The staff are friendly and helpful but this is really for backpackers, and not really for people wanting to camp and do things.

Still, this is a great little site for short stops!

We stayed here on the fifth night of our Hadrian's Wall walk (East to West). I cannot fault this site. The pitches are perfect, it is set up for walkers and close to the Hadrian's Wall Trail. Prices are very reasonable and the facilities are excellent. The owner is a former hiker and knows what we need! There is even a CAMRA award-winning pub five minutes walk away. The owner allows Wall walkers to leave their cars safely on site for a reasonable fee.

Stayed with friends for two nights camping. We were greeted on arrival and given a tour by Martin who was friendly and extremely helpful. He showed us around one of his wigwams when we asked and they looked really great and very well priced. We took some walks from the campsite up to the river which was lovely. Pub was a very short walk away, good food and ales. We were given a fire pit to use and some wood which was good as a lot of sites no longer allow fires. The facilities were very, very good. A large cabin with several bathrooms and a dining area. Would definitely recommend! 10/10. Thanks Martin :)

A smashing little site and easy to find. Martin the manager was very friendly and approachable. Stayed the night in one of the little chalets as the shower block was being renovated (Martin still only charged me the price of a single tent which was very decent of him) and it was clean, warm with a nice little kitchen and a nice hot shower. Would definitely recommend this site, and will stay there again

Stayed here with some friends over the weekend, couldn't fault this site in any way. The owners were extremely friendly, there was nothing more they could have done to help us, from supplying a BBQ, a fire pit, lending us extra sleeping bags (because it was quite a cold night), to supplying tools to help us fix a small problem with our engine.

The site has a cosy personal feel It is big enough to have your own space and privacy, but small enough that you don't have to walk far for that inevitable late night trip to the toilet! The facilities are exceptionally clean and well maintained, with three toilets, a shower and a bath as well as a library of books and games to keep anyone entertained.

There is a lovely pub 5 mins walk away with friendly staff and yummy food at decent prices. All the customers are welcoming and friendly, so it doesn't feel like a local pub for local people! And your canine friend can come too.

The main road gives you Asda if you want to buy BBQ supplies and for a beautiful walk with or without a dog, take a trip to Brampton, just 25-30 mins drive to Talkin Tarn, a beautiful lake with a cafe and ice-cream shop, where you can just walk various routes around the lake or fish for pike. Or head to any of the Hadrian's Wall sites, there are loads of brochures available to plan your days entertainment.

We will definitely return to this site, probably in the summer, and recommend it to all.

This really is a hidden delight, only about 6 miles from Carlisle city centre but feels a world away with its tranquillity and serene atmosphere.

The owner and his lovely wife couldn't do enough to make us welcome and were always on hand if assistance was required.

We stayed in the self catering cabin and found the facilities fantastic, this was a nice break in the middle of our campervaning tour of Cumbria and then across to york.

The Drovers arms pub only 350 yds away is a real oldy worldy type pub recently taken over by Sandy and Sarah and we wish them all the best in their venture( Food and real ales were great).

The communal lounge room at the site is a great idea and was utilised by our daughters to watch movies on our laptop while we relaxed in the cabin.

Over all fantastic value for money far exceeded what we expected for the price.

One small observation being that maybe the small hob in the cabin could do with updating soon its a bit temperamental and settings have rubbed off and if that's the way they Martin wants to take it a bit of canny advertising( we have posted on vw T4forum) to maybe widen his catchment other than walkers and cyclists.

Will definitely be visiting again.

Reviewer: Redders499 14 reviews from this member

Just returned from a two nights stay at this site, we had our own tent. It has a couple of camping cabins or 'wigwams', and cabin, set up tent and space for maybe 7 or 8 tents.

The facilities are housed within another larger cabin. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath, and also a separate toilet. Martin, the owner, keeps the place spotlessly clean and obviously takes great pride in the appearance of the site and the communal areas. There is a library, and somewhere warm to sit if it rains outside! This is a really excellent feature.

The site is level, well drained, spacious and plenty of room to pitch. There are lots of walkers coming through here, and it is perfect for that.

Owner is amazing, he is genuinely interested in people, can't do enough for each visitor and has created a lovely, quiet site.

We would definitely return and would recommend to walkers and campers wanting to see the area, alike.
