Hadrian’s wall campsite is a small, family run site. Steve and Tracy, the owners, are aways here working on the site and welcoming the guests. It’s a peaceful, tranquil site.
We’re not a big site with play parks and farm animals but children love it here. Every year, the swallows return to the permanent nests just outside our reception area and it’s a joy to watch the chicks develop and fledge. The rabbits are so used to people around, they seem quite happy to stay around while you pitch up. Our resident robins and sparrows love to see who’s coming and venture into an open tent or stay around to join you for supper.
We have lots of space to run around and the joys of the Roman history on our doorstep mean the children are happily entertained.
Our Wifi is slow and intermittent and we don’t have TV in any of our glamping units, so you really do have to switch off (our mobile signal is very good however). But it’s perfect for getting away and being at one with nature.
Nature is so important to us. We love to watch it and listen to it. The birdsong on the site is amazing at any time of year but the site comes alive with song during the Spring and Summer. So that everyone can appreciate the beautiful sounds – even the amazing sound of silence at night – we don’t allow amplified music and our quiet time is from 10.30pm to 8am. We don’t expect you to be in bed by 10.30 but we ask that you keep voices down.
We’re not a party site so if you are looking to come away with family or friends to enjoy music and drinking through the night, we’re not the site for you I’m afraid.
Apart from the obvious Hadrian’s Wall walk and cycleway the opportunities for walking and cycling are endless straight from the campsite or if you want to venture further afield there are so many places to explore (see our explore page). There is a local bus service – the AD122 – which stops at the end of the road 5 minutes away and will take you to all of the Roman sites along the wall or to our nearest town of Haltwhistle to connect you to nearby towns and villages and the railway links.
We are in a most spectacular part of the country with wildlife, flora and fauna second to none. We love it all and we want to make sure we are as environmentally conscious as possible. We have done lots of work on the site and as we continue to work to improve it, we will make the protection of our environment a priority

We love to see your canine companions on our campsite. We allow up to 2 dogs per pitch and we ask that you keep your dog on a lead while on the site. There are so many walks around us and your dog can enjoy them too but please be mindful that there will be livestock all around us and you will need to follow the canine country code. See here for information on some great dog walks.
