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 betwixt 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. Hadrian’s Wall, five miles from the campsite, offers walking opportunities along with Kielder Water and Forest Park which has a 27-mile track around the shore of the lake. Water sport lovers can sail, canoe and water ski here too.

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

Site right next to South Tyne River so wonderful for wildlife, whilst fairly sheltered by woodland. Immediately south are the North Pennines, & the Pennine Way passes quite close by. Lots of less arduous walking and cycling nearby though, including South Tyne Trail, and several small towns worth visiting, as well as Hadrian's Wall & lots of "Roman" sites. The facilities were spotless, as one expects from Club sites, though not the newest or poshest, though I don't mind that for myself. I suspect the access scares some people, both the road to the site, and the site's own access track are steep, narrow and bendy. Even in my small campervan I was very cautious, as the tarmac on the public highway was quite worn. If you meet towing units someone has to go off the road, and then it can be difficult to get back on. Still for me that is a price worth paying for such a lovely spot to camp. The club has recently spent money on upgrading the tarmac and drainage on site, so hopefully it intends to keep this site in its books, so I can return in the future. I telephoned to book, and arrived, on a day when I was unwell, and needed help. Not only did I get that in spades, it was offered with the cheery smiles, which one comes to expect from Club Site staff. It was particularly appreciated that day since I had received a very unhelpful reply earlier when ringing another Club site nearby. So I was even more impressed when I realised that the Site Managers had no cover whilst I was there, early in the season, and were having to work day in day out! Come on Club, your Site staff make all the difference to the success of the sites, don't take them for granted! Everyone needs a day off on a regular basis, surely?

We had a great few days with unreliable weather.

This review is for Haltwhistle

We had a great few days with unreliable weather. The dog walk in the woods is the most interesting I have come across.. variety, wildlife and plenty of space. The managers work very hard to create a welcoming atmosphere and environment. Clean tidy, plenty of hot water. We loved it.The site is well placed for Hadrian's Wall but be ready to pay a lot for parking along its route. Haltwhistle itself has shops for most needs.Really friendly people.
