 We donít usually go in for club sites but I was pleasantly surprised (apart from the price for non members).

The location is beautiful, right on the river and access direct to the woods with no need to go out on the road.

Directions are provided for Haltwhistle and a walk to the pub.

Toilets and showers were nice and clean, spacious washing up area, and all quiet by dark.

No campfires allowed even in a raised pit which was disappointing. Otherwise very good.

 Very nice well laid out site in a great location. Very friendly helpful staff.

Extensive walks and river bank at the site, great for dog walking.

A bit far from the town if you want a glass of wine with dinner there.

 The site is right next to a river, lots of walks from the site, we took our bikes and whilst it's only a short distance to a disused railway track there is a challenging hill to get to it, the national cycle route that its part of goes all the way from Haltwhistle to Alston and whilst the description of that route says fairly flat there are definitely challenging hills in there too.

Haltwhistle is cycling and walking distance and from there it's about a 2. 5 mile walk to Hadrians Wall, aim for Cawfields Quarry, well worth a visit, as are the historical roman sites around. Half an hour on the train to Carlisle.

The nearest reasonable size supermarket is in Hexham which is a half hour drive, but well worth a visit too. Kielder Water is a 50 minute drive away and is stunning, there's a 26 mile bike ride around the lake.

The site was clean, very quiet, relatively small, strange insects flying around in the evening, I assume due to the river and trees, but they didn't bother us.

The only negative experience we had was witnessing a young family being told there had been complaints about them due to ball games being played, the family had arrived the day before and were gone later that day despite telling us they would be staying for four nights. We felt uncomfortable about that, particularly as many other families were playing ball games but nothing was said.

Having said that we would return.

The wardens were helpful and friendly.

 Nice, quiet, secure site with a dog walking field, glamping pods and several flat, serviced pitches for caravan/motor homes.

Ideal spot for easy access to rural Cumbria/Northumberland. Hadrianís wall including walk and several Roman Forts (including Vindolanda - worth a visit) a short drive away.

The nearest town for shops, pubs and takeaway food is only a mile or so away but is accessed down a very long, steep, narrow hill with no paths or grass verges, so really not ideal for walking in to, so make sure youíre well stocked up as the on-site shop only provides the basics.

The site Managers are friendly and helpful. There are no particular on-site provisions for children but the many thousands of acres of surrounding countryside will have them tired out from walking very easily.

This site is a short drive onto the main road to either Carlisle or Newcastle upon Tyne, so an easy day out for a bit of retail therapy or other city based entertainment.

Reviewer: Magsie 51 reviews from this member

 A small secluded site tucked away down a steep hill in the woods by the River South Tyne, with plenty of public footpaths on a National Trust estate.

Itís a pleasant 2. 5-mile ramble on footpaths to Haltwhistle, which has shops and a railway station (Carlisle-Newcastle line).

The camp is also a good base for visiting some of the Roman sites along Hadrianís Wall, to the north of Haltwhistle. Or you can explore the Haltwhistle-Alston cycle path, partly on an old railway track and partly quiet roads, accessible less than a mile away at Park village and fairly level once youíve climbed the steep hill out of the campsite.

Itís an easy 4-mile ride along the cycle route to Haltwhistle or 14 more varied miles in the other direction to Alston, England's highest market town.

The campsite facilities were closed (Covid) and the site was busy, though not full. Look out for deer, birds and red squirrels.

 What an excellent little find.

Smallish club site with well spaced pitches by the river and away from any noise of the roads.

Nigel couldnít have been more helpful on check in.

Covid restrictions meant that facilities werenít open when we visited but we could use water and empty out grey and black.

Got to say, this had the best elsan point Iíve ever experienced when camping. Really well laid out with sanitary facilities to allow you to empty out and wash up before returning to the van. Smart.

Kids are welcome but itís not a kid-oriented site. No play area or anything like that. Tbh, itís right by the river, so I would be on constant alert if I had a child there.

Good cycleway and walks nearby. Chippy in nearby Haltwhistle delivers amazing food for a small fee and is well worth trying (Fryery of Haltwhistle).

£19. 50 with hook up and Wi-fi

For those that canít survive without it, it also has good free Wi-fi.

 A brilliant little site.

Located right on the banks of the South Tyne and set in nice woodland.

Friendly welcome - good hosts.

Facilities block closed due to Covid, but all other amenities were good.

Remote location but Haltwhistle within driving distance.

Excellent base for Pennines and Hadrianís Wall.

Reviewer: NMack 15 reviews from this member

 This is a lovely site beside the river. Being surrounded by trees, the site doesn't get full sun all day, but it does works its way around the site.

The site was almost full each night of the 4 we stayed and is relatively easy to get to. Do bear in mind the instructions for arriving, the entry to the site is as it says, steep. Once into the site everything is level. The facilities were lovely and clean, and the showers excellent. We took up the offer of a daily paper and the shop has a small selection of essentials if you run out.

As it was September, it was all adults on the site and was very peaceful. Have to say we did have really heavy rain one night but only saw one puddle the next morning. You could tell it had rained, the river had risen quite considerably, but was still no where near the campsite level.

A great site, well worth a stop if you're visiting Hadrian's Wall.

 A very pleasant site in a wooded area next to the river. The small number of pitches makes it even better in my view (I am not keen on large sites). Excellently laid out and maintained with good facilities (except the push button showers never last long enough!). The managers were friendly and helpful - the only downside was, as usual, we seemed to be the only people on site who knew what 5mph means (it is walking speed, not Chris Hoy cycling speed).
