 First of all I have to mention how beautiful the area of Chollerford is.

We stayed while walking Hadrian's wall from West to East and I thoroughly recommend Riverside to travelers.

On arrival there was a little confusion because there's nobody available to speak to and the cafe is nothing to do with the camp site, although it is apparently owned by the same people. We ordered a delicious sandwich from the cafe and although the young lady who served us knew nothing about the camp site, she was very helpful and went and found out for us.

What you do is pitch your tent and find the honesty envelopes in the shower block, put your money in and post it through the letter box at the adjacent bungalow. Forwarded baggage is left in a blue portakabin behind the buses.

The facilities are clean and comfortable. Great Showers.

Well kept and maintained ground with plenty of space. Nice and quiet.

 Great site if your walking the wall.

Its backpackers only (no vehicles).

A very basic but fully functional toilet and shower block with plenty of hot water.

It was very busy when we stayed, probably around 30 campers on site but the facilities were enough to cope.

I wouldn't bother with the George across the road as its a bit stuck up but the crown is only 5 mins walk away where you can drink and share tips with other walkers.

The breakfast was an added bonus in the morning.

 This site was our second night's stop while walking Hadrian's Wall (from East to West). I cannot fault it. The prices were reasonable, the field excellent (although it was part sloping which could be a problem if busy), and the facilities very suited to walkers. The cafe is great for breakfast too unless you set off very early. There is a pub in the village about a mile walk from the campsite.

Reviewer: Argentum66 8 reviews from this member

 Perfect for overnight stay while walking Hadrian's wall. Site right in the centre of Chollerford. Owner operates Cafe by the Garage during the day, out of hours enquire at the bungalow. We were told they only take backpackers on the site.

The facilities are great, with a spotless, purpose built shower and toilet block. Camping field is well kept but rather large if it really is just for backpackers.

2 nearby pubs, The George just over the Road and The Crown about 1 mile away. Chesters Roman fort is just about 1 mile away also. Cafe opens at 9 for breakfast and to get you on your way on the next leg. 5 per night

 This campsite is located in the picturesque village of Chollerford, and on the route of the Hadrian's Wall path.

There is a cafe here, plus basic facilities (toilet, shower). Unfortunately, the dryer was not connected, but I didn't really need it.

The owners were sufficiently friendly and accommodating; campground booking took place in the cafe, and outside of cafe hours you need to go and knock on the bungalow door. (Took me a while to work that out!).

There's a pub over the road; didn't investigate it, but it looks nice enough.

 I spent the night at this site whilst doing the Hadrian's Wall Path. It is ideally located right alongside the path close to the Chollerford Bridge.

The site has three toilets and a good shower, along with an area to clean dishes, all of which are kept clean. I don't recall there being any specific play area. Attached to the site is some tea rooms and a garage which has a small shop.

Within 20 minutes walking distance is the Roman fort of Chesters along with sections of the wall across the North Tyne near the Brunton Turret.

If you're doing the path and intending to see Chesters bear in mind that it does not open until 10am and the site is at most 30 minutes walk away, so its no point getting up really early that day!

 Stayed one night while walking the wall. This site is on the trail so very handy. Shower block, toilets clean and good quality. Friendly and helpful owners. The cafe is there for brekkie and packed lunches but it shuts at 4pm. Posh pub across the road we felt a bit tired and dirty for but a lovely pub about half a mile up the road. The dogs were quiet for us. It is right by a road and the weir on the river is close, but neither particularly noisy.

Reviewer: Northerngal33 7 reviews from this member

 Stayed at this site for 3 days while recovering from blisters after walking the wall and the owners could not be more friendly.
The toilet block was only just being built when we got there so the owner said we could use the toilets in the tea rooms, not ideal but did the job, we then went on to walk the rest of the wall refreshed with better feet. Oh yes the dogs did bark incessently but you got used to them and they shut up if you shouted at them. All in all a lovely field to stay in with warm and friendly staff nothing was too much trouble.

 We walked Hadrians wall in early june 2008. We stayed for 1 night.

Lovely little campsite on the banks of the tyne with excellent facillities.What looked to be a newly built toilet block with 2 shower cubicles with piping hot water. The field was nicely cut and close to the george hotel where we had a fairly decent evening meal(the wife said it was poor)but i'm not as critical!.

In the morning the owner organised for our packs to be transported along to the next campsite 15 miles away to save us carrying them.

Couldn't have been more helpful.An excellent 'full english' to start the day in the Riverside cafe.

Only 1 negative;

The 2 greyhounds that the owner had barked constantly until it got dark

Will definitely stay there again next year :-)

 We stayed at this campsite for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The toilet and shower block were clean, also plenty of loo roll.
The camp field had two levels on it we stayed on the higher level as the lower level had been flooded by the recent rain. It was not wet when we were there just boggy but was coned off.

Pauline who ran the campsite and the tea room was very friendly and helpful,
At the tea room you can get butty's or sandwiches.
