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

Great base to explore aspects of the Roman Wall including the brilliant Vindolanda and the Roman Museum. Quiet roads for cycling from the campsite. Haltwhistle is a 2 mile walk away and worth a visit for the local shops including Jethro's, a really good sandwich shop and Billy Bell the local butcher who sells Tynside delicacies including peas pudding! We walked into Haltwhistle using the cross country route to the north of the Tyne and found it very wet under foot. The safest route is along the disused railway line which is the south Tyne trail. The shower has block has been recently refurbished and is immaculate. Altogether a lovely friendly site with good amenities.

This review is for Haltwhistle

When they say 'peaceful & tranquil' they mean it! I usually avoid club sites in the summer holidays but even though the site was full at times, with family's etc I have never stayed on such a peaceful site! For a 50 pitch site the facilities are fine, new this season and kept spotless. There aren't any 'Backpacker' facilities but I had hardly finished pitching and unloading my cycle before the manageress arrived with a full size garden chair! There followed a week of luxury! The surrounding countryside is beautifully unspoiled and with the obvious exception of the wall almost deserted. After a week of walking and cycling I have hardly scratched the surface of what the area has to offer. Haltwhistle is well worth traveling distance fore. This cycle camper is defiantly going back for more.

The introduction by the team to organise papers on the site is a real plus, other sites please note, the entrance to the site is on a very narrow steep downhill single track road , would imagine this could cause problems for traffic entering and exiting , perhaps a sensor ed traffic light system could be considered , site close to cycle track lovely walks and nearby villages all round great location

This review is for Haltwhistle

We arrived much later than intended but received a warm welcome and the information that the fish and chip/pizza shop in Haltwhistle would deliver! Tent up in time for food to arrive - a great bonus when you pitch too far from the town to walk. The site is small and secluded with a very well stocked shop!
