Select Section

Overview

This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Brockalee is a family run Certificated Site midway between Newcastle and Carlisle, just south of the Roman Wall. The site is level with good access; we have horses, ponies, donkeys, goats and various breeds of sheep and a cattery. The site is a short walk to a large play park, a village shop, tea room, pub, restaurant, pottery museum, riding stables and local attraction Hadrian’s Wall. Vindolanda and Housteads forts and museums with live excavations. Allen Banks. New opening for spring 2017 is The Sill National Park Discovery Centre, a day out for everybody approx. 3km away. We are on the Coast to Coast cycle route and in the middle of a network of fantastic signed footpaths and the local bus and train service give direct access to Newcastle and Carlisle and the Roman Wall (the bus stop is 150mtrs and the train station is 600mtrs away). Within a short drive are 3 heated open air swimming pools, Kielder Forest and reservoir, Alnwick Castle and Beamish Museum. National Trusts Wallington Hall, Gibside and Cragside House with falconry days with birds of prey and a visitor centre. Other attractions include Kirkhale Lancelot, Capability Browns Lake and Courtyard and Hexham Abbey.

We were excavating at Vindolanda at this site was within half an hours walk.

This review is for Brockalee Farm

We were excavating at Vindolanda at this site was within half an hours walk. It is well maintained an the facilities are immaculately clean. There was only one shower and toilet but a second was being built while we were there. The owners are really friendly. The site is close to the main road which makes getting there easy. It is well above the road so there is no noticeable road noise. There are good views over the fells opposite. It's within easy walking distance of the village shop, the pub bus stops and the railway station. We took advantage of all of them. The site is 10 minutes drive from Vindolanda and about 20 minutes drive from all the best bits of the Roman Wall. Hexham is close with good shopping facilities. Newcastle was about 45 minutes on the train. All in all, the site was brilliant for us, the scenery amazing and we saw most of the Roman Wall. If I get on the excavation again next year, we will be returning.

Very well kept site. Excellent facilities.

This review is for Brockalee Farm

Very well kept site. Excellent facilities. Visited this site at the end of August for a couple of nights. Well spaced gravel hard standing pitches, all with hook-up. Looked like a newly built toilet/shower block, kept spotless. Good recycling facilities. Very friendly owner. Walking distance from Vindolanda (sturdy boots required apparently, we drove as we were going further on). Road noise could be a bit intrusive, but not too bad. Easy walking into Bardon Mill (once across the A69), and the local pub. Very well located for visiting Hadrian's Wall and the associated attractions (Roman Army Museum, Vindolanda, Housesteads, etc). One to go back to.

Fantastic site extremely clean.

This review is for Brockalee Farm

Fantastic site extremely clean. Owners very welcoming with wealth of knowledge regarding walks and surrounding areas. 5 star site Brockalee campsite review Bardon mill northumberland. The site owners Jeff and sheila are very welcoming nothing is to much bother for them. They are also wealth of information regarding the area, giving you ideas on places to visit. The facilities are spotless as is the site there is only space for 5 caravans or motorhomes all hard standing. Also space for few tents to . . Bargain at £15 per night if staying few nights with electric included in the price. Jeff also kindly gives you box free range eggs free of charge when you arrive. You are based very close to hadrians wall and vindolanda. Shops are not to far away with a sainsburys and co op few miles away at haltwhistle. Pub is also within walking distance. Would definately visit again

Excellent level site. Very handy for Hadrian's Wall.

Excellent level site. Very handy for Hadrian's Wall. Within walking distance of Vindolanda and Roman Wall. Excellent site for motorhomes with level hard standings. A very well kept site. Road noise may disliked by some. This is the best CS we have ever seen.
