Great site for access to Hadrian's Wall

McDermott, Kevin - 17/11/2022

We arrived in mid November, in darkness at 6pm on Friday and didn't get to see much of the site.We were warmly welcomed, and top tip, the breakfast packs are great!The shop looks to be well stocked with essentials, and the info room has vending machines with hot drinks and snacks.We walked into Haltwhistle and had dinner in a local restaurant, I'll admit, coming back up that hill is pretty hard work after a big meal, wish there was an easier way.On the Saturday, we headed towards Homesteads, with its well-preserved Roman fort, and walked several miles along Hadrian's wall, well worth the effort.Later that night, we were treated to a beautiful dark sky.We headed home on Sunday, the facilities are nice and modern, and you have great views from the top of the hill over the surrounding countryside, and it's easy to get to.

Brilliant little site

Ruyssenaars, Hans - 08/11/2022

Warm welcome by owners. Motorhome pitch was of a reasonable size. Excellent facilities. We didn’t make use of the baths or sauna but they’re there if you need them. Pub down the hill does good beer and good food for a fair price. Easy access by bicycle to Hadrian’s Wall etc. Fussing over the animals a relaxing experience. We’ll definitely be back!

GOOD SITE, GREAT LOCATION

McCall, Peter - 03/11/2022

The location of the site is ideal for Hadrian’s Wall, lots of great walking available, the road tho is very busy with fast traffic so cycling only if confident & not really good for children. I have not encountered anywhere else in UK or abroad an earliest check in time of 1500 - to be honest It means day one is a right off and frankly feels a bit rich when check out is 1100 - felt a bit ripped off. The site is well presented, the facilities immaculately clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Location is isolated so do come with supplies. The road round the site is gravel covered and both cars and the site buggies certainly seem to exceed the 5mph limit, and on the gravel it actually gets quite noisy. It’s a good site in good weather, marred a little by the check in issue.

Wonderful little family friendly site

Cook, Julie - 03/11/2022

I have a large motorhome and phoned ahead to enquire about ease of access and was given great advice about the way to approach. Very friendly staff, immaculately kept site, fabulous facilities block. Visited during half term with the grandchildren and it’s a super little site for families. Although weather wasn’t too kind it’s a very sheltered site but did see the Milky Way on our one clear night. The AD122 bus runs along the military road which is less than a 10 minute walk away. Used it to visit vinolanda, Housesteads, the Sill. Then walked back to campsite along Hadrian’s wall footpath (quite a lot of climbing in places !!) A little gem of a site I will return to in the future.

Perfect site

Newton, Katie - 02/11/2022

Perfect site to stay with family. We stayed here for 2 nights we hired a fire pit for the first night which had the fire wood available and lasted at least 4 hours. There was a petting farm on site and a park for the kids which was free and kept them busy. The amenities were immaculate and heated flooring was a added touch after a windy walk along hadrians wall. We hired the bbq hut on the Friday night which was absolutely amazing, the staff had it all set up with coal and fire lighters and it sat enough space for us all, it was well lit and a perfect evening for us all. We would definitely stay here again.
