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.

What a lovely site, a credit to the new Managers and the Club.

This review is for Haltwhistle

What a lovely site, a credit to the new Managers and the Club. The new facilities block is super. The site is so pretty and tranquil. Traci the assistant showed us to our pitch, and was very helpful, friendly and informative. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Haltwhistle is a charming little town, with a Morrisons supermarket. We had a meal at the Black Bull Inn, which was excellent and reasonable priced. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with rolling hills and views for miles. Hadrian's Wall is right on the doorstep. Apart from the climb out of site, cycling is good. A disused railway line makes for easy, safe family cycling. The staff were all so friendly. This is what makes this Club so great. We will definitely be going back.

This review is for Haltwhistle

While tucked away in a wooded area, the site is near enough to the town for supplies, right next to walks for dogs or humans and the sound of the river and birdsong are the main noises - unless the inevitable grass cutting is underway of course. A great place for exploring the Cumbria/Northumbria area, esp Hadrian's Wall - don't miss Vindolanda and the Roman Museum, but also drink in the atmosphere of the wall itself. Fabulous facilities kept immaculate at all times while we were there.

The Roman Army Museum and the Vindolanda Fort and Museum were excellent tourist attractions.

This review is for Haltwhistle

The Roman Army Museum and the Vindolanda Fort and Museum were excellent tourist attractions. And Blenkinsop Castle afternoon tea was positively scrumptious. We shall certainly visit again. Steve and Sheree are a real asset to the Camping and Caravan Club.
