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.

I had a lovely stay at this site - very well maintained with helpful staff.

This review is for Haltwhistle

I had a lovely stay at this site - very well maintained with helpful staff. The walk into Haltwhistle is along a redundant railway line so is easy and sheltered walking. When I stayed (June) the countryside and wild flowers were particularly beautiful. The only thing I would advise - apart from come to this site! - is to follow the caravan directions from the A69 even if like me you're not towing - I approached from the south and couldn't follow the map, but once on the A69 south of Haltwhistle the approach was easy.

Yet again a site where the photos don't do it justice.

Yet again a site where the photos don't do it justice. This is a beautiful site with excellent facilities and helpful wardens. We will be returning regularly, hopefully, due to the array of walks and attractions in the area.

Brilliant site.

This review is for Haltwhistle

Brilliant site. Walk through the bluebell woods to Haltwhistle or down the sustrans cycleway if you want the flat walk. Happily recommend The Wallace Arms down the track for good real ale and friendliest of locals. The Black Bull in Haltwhistle is fabulous for hearty cooked meals and I do mean hearty! Superbly placed for walking 'The Wall', and a lovely riverside walk from the town centre to the wall is a joy. Cannot imagine anyone being disappointed staying at this site. Sherilee and Steve were just lovely!

This review is for Haltwhistle

Having recently returned from visiting the Haltwhistle site we would just like to mention what we found. Having no preconceived ideas about the site we were highly delighted when we arrived at the beautiful woodland site. The site is completely surrounded by woodland with a central clearing for a large grassed area. The Tyne river then sits on the western side of the site around 30 meters away with direct access onto the bank through the trees. Where we were situated you could also hear the river especially at night when all was quite. Having taken three boys we did not anticipate how much there was for them to do. They were always in the wooded area to the rear building dens and dragging us off for walks to explore up and down the river. Although we didn't take bikes this time this is a great site for letting them ride around the site as it's not too big so you can keep an eye on them, quite and also flat. There are also a couple of areas where there's sand on the river bank so buckets and spades are a must. The welcome we received was second to none right from the start through to rock painting on the Tuesday afternoon, which the boys will not forget, to our departure at the end of our stay. Their painted stones take pride of place on the fire in the conservatory. The site amenities have recently been refurbished and once again are second to none and spotlessly clean at all times. We had a wonderful time at the Haltwhistle site and would like to thank the team down their for making our stay so memorable and welcoming. We've already earmarked the site for a return visit next year.
