The landscape around us, its ecology and biodiversity, is very special and greatly looked after by Northumberland national park. It’s very important to us that we play our part in protecting our wonderful area as well as doing all we can to protect our planet.
The very interesting thing about our campsite is that it’s actually been recycled/ upcycled in itself – it used to be a site where clay was excavated and clay drainage pipes were made and so its camping terraces and landscaping were actually borne out of a previous life. Guests will always comment on the landscape here. It’s certainly not a recent JCB flattening job to create rows of same pitches. That’s one of our special features! Our site is planted with trees, hedges and plants that are important in providing a habitat for our wonderful wildlife including birds, insects, rabbits, hedgehogs and stoats.
Our approach to the environment is a very real, practical and developing approach to preserving the wonderful place we have here on our camping site at Hadrian’s Wall on the doorstep of Northumberland National Park.
Such a difficult subject because given our location, like most campsites the majority of our guests are arriving by car or motorhome. In the next few years, we are preparing ourselves for the inevitable shift toward electric vehicles. Here are some interesting transport points though;
Northumberland boasts many local producers and we believe it’s essential to support them
We continue to investigate ways to reduce our carbon impact. We plan to invest in solar panels in the future and with any new work that we do on the site, we consider the environmental impact carefully. Please help us to be kind to the planet by considering your own environmental approach while you are staying with us
