Pitch in a lovely clearing in the forests of Northumberland in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and European Geopark.

Haltwhistle Club campsite’s setting in a clearing in Bellister Wood makes it the ideal get-away-from-it-all camping destination. The wood, once part of the Bellister Castle Estate, is now managed by the National Trust and is a haven for wildlife and you could find yourself sharing your pitch with rabbits and birds, including woodpeckers.

This 50 pitch site between the Northumberland National Park and North Pennines is surrounded by magnificent walking and cycling country. The Haltwhistle Rings – a series of 22 local walks is one way to take in the local scenery along with Hadrian’s Wall, five miles from the campsite, offers picturesque walking opportunities.

Back at Haltwhistle campsite, the adjacent River Tyne provides fishing for those with the appropriate rod licence.

After a day cycling or walking or enjoying some of the area’s many attractions our secluded campsite among the trees is a peaceful oasis to relax and unwind. The modern facilities include showers and toilets, a laundry and washing up area.

This review is for Haltwhistle

For us this 'small' site was idyllic, but within easy reach of the county's historic attractions. The town of Haltwhistle offers all the basic shopping requirements, together with several hosteleries. As we were researching family history, the library there was very helpful.

This review is for Haltwhistle

We knew the access road in and out of the site was narrow and steep so we were a little nervous since this was our 1st caravan trip with a brand new caravan we had collected only 1 hour before arriving at Halwhistle. No problems getting access to the site and the site itself was excellent. We had a lovely 2 night stay working out how the van equipment worked and taking a walk by the river and a trip to Hexham. When leaving the 13 pin connector was really difficult to align and Steve (the manager) was very helpful breaking away from his duties to give us advice. Navigating the road out was fine but, someone in a car had stopped 1/2 way up the hill to get something out their boot and scampered back in to the drivers seat when they saw us coming up the hill, they managed to pull away just as we were creeping up behind them - I wouldnt have like to stop and restart on that hill!! Thanks Steve and Sheree

Hadrains Wall has lots of places of interest along its length worth joining the English Heritage for. There is a new site called The Sill which has a lovely exhibition about Landscape.

A great site, hidden in a valley next to the river.

This review is for Haltwhistle

A great site, hidden in a valley next to the river. Really friendly welcome and shown to your pitch. Spotlessly clean. Site managers couldn't be better, offering help at any time and good advice about the local area. Good base for walking and exploring Hadrian's Wall. If you're into fishing, the river runs right next to the site. Superb, we will definitely be returning.
