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

We have been several times per year throughout the last 4 seasons and a good part of that reason is the relaxed atmosphere created by Keith & Sue. They work hard to keep the site looking good with plenty of flowers around the site all year. It's obvious from the number of regulars we meet on site that other people are of the opinion that when you have found a well run site you stay with it, some stay for a month at a time. What better recommendation than that! Thankyou to you both for some lovely stays and we'll see you next year.

It is some time since we have stayed at this site.

This review is for Haltwhistle

It is some time since we have stayed at this site. It is only small but it is in a lovely spot with the river bordering the campsite. We had a friendly welcome and staff were very helpful. There are walks and plenty of places of interest in the surrounding area.

Enjoyed our stay very much.

Enjoyed our stay very much. Try Blenkinsop Castle Inn for afternoon tea or pub grub, also The Greenhead Hotel for a meal both within 3 miles of site. Don't forget to look up - the stars are beautiful due to hardly any light pollution.
