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.

Such a peaceful spot.

This review is for Haltwhistle

Such a peaceful spot. Walks from the site, we walked over the Common to Halwhistle one day and then went off visiting Vindolanda and various parts of Hadrian's Wall the others. Facilities spotless. There was an issue with the hot water one day and work continued late into the evening to fix it for the following day. Would definitely stay again.

It is twelve years since we last visited the site and what a transformation.

This review is for Haltwhistle

It is twelve years since we last visited the site and what a transformation. The only thing that is the same is the river that runs alongside and the surrounding woods. There are now tarmac roads,lots of hardstandings and superb toilets.Everything is spotless. While we were there my wife injured her leg on one of our folding chairs which needed some expert treatment so ass.manager Howard contacted the local hospital and arranged for her to be seen right away which we did and within half an hour it was sorted. Many thanks Howard

lovely site, immaculate too. Very peaceful, good sized pitches. We liked it a lot. Was our first time out with our van, a test run. Wish we had stayed an extra night here, but we moved over to the coast.
