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 45 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.

A pleasant small site set in woodland by the river, with good facilities and helpful managers.

This review is for Haltwhistle

A pleasant small site set in woodland by the river, with good facilities and helpful managers. We were there in midseason, midweek, with about twenty other units which suits our tastes admirably - I would not want to be there when it is full. Unusually for club sites, there were a number of tent sites available and the lack of extraneous (road etc) noise was wonderful. Good access to the mass of excellent roman remains along Hadrians wall - the roman army museum and Vindolanda were fascinating for all ages. I was the only driver on site who was aware that 5mph is walking speed, not Chris Hoy cycling speed.

This review is for Haltwhistle

This is a fabulous site in a lovely location with fantastic dog walks along the river direct from the site. The wardens are friendly and very helpful and keep the facilities spotlessly clean and tidy. The approach is narrow and fairly steep as mentioned in the site description but is not a problem as long as people abide by the arrival time rule. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our visit by 2 days and although it was a bank holiday and the site was full the wardens were able to accommodate us without having to move pitch - thank you. The chemical toilet emptying facilities are the best I have encountered in over 40 years of caravanning. There are good walks direct from the site and you are only a 10 minute drive away from Hadrian's Wall. The nearest pub is the Wallace Arms which is a couple of miles away and has great real ales but sadly does not do meals. We really enjoyed our stay and I am sure we will become regular visitors to this little gem of a site.

This review is for Haltwhistle

wonderful quiet site,ideal for us and our dog. The access road is very tight and steep so pay heed to the warning on the site page but if you take your time it is ok. Ever thing as you would expect for a club site. Would definitely recommend.

A beautiful secluded site, surrounded by woods and the South Tyne river.

This review is for Haltwhistle

A beautiful secluded site, surrounded by woods and the South Tyne river. Clean toilet/shower block with hairdryers and private cubicles for wash basins. We have two dogs and there were plenty of walks directly from the site. The on-site dog walk is particularly scenic, right next to the river. There are plenty of things to see and do within a short drive. We visited Hadrian�s Wall, Sycamore Gap, Housesteads Roman Fort and Chesters Roman Fort, during the bank holiday weekend. Would definitely return.
