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.

Visited Haltwhistle site for the first time and it won't be the last. The welcome from the team was one of the best we've had. The site is so peaceful and secluded but within easy reach of Hadrians wall and many other visitors attractions so you can camp as busy or as relaxed as you like. The approach road to the site is quite steep and narrow but I managed without any drama and I consider myself a relatively inexperienced caravanner. The toilets are lovely and clean and modern, the site as a whole is a credit to the staff. The dogs loved exploring the woods at the end of the site too!

I had a lovely stay at this site - very well maintained with helpful staff. The walk into Haltwhistle is along a redundant railway line so is easy and sheltered walking. When I stayed (June) the countryside and wild flowers were particularly beautiful. The only thing I would advise - apart from come to this site! - is to follow the caravan directions from the A69 even if like me you're not towing - I approached from the south and couldn't follow the map, but once on the A69 south of Haltwhistle the approach was easy.

Yet again a site where the photos don't do it justice.
This is a beautiful site with excellent facilities and helpful wardens. We will be returning regularly, hopefully, due to the array of walks and attractions in the area.

Brilliant site. Walk through the bluebell woods to Haltwhistle or down the sustrans cycleway if you want the flat walk. Happily recommend The Wallace Arms down the track for good real ale and friendliest of locals. The Black Bull in Haltwhistle is fabulous for hearty cooked meals and I do mean hearty! Superbly placed for walking 'The Wall', and a lovely riverside walk from the town centre to the wall is a joy.
Cannot imagine anyone being disappointed staying at this site. Sherilee and Steve were just lovely!
