Haltwhistle is a Camping and Caravan Club site on National Trust land.
We enjoyed our stay on this attractive little site while we explored the central part of Hadrian’s Wall and it’s surrounding moorland. We found the staff helpful, friendly and attentive in maintaining the site.
The wooded, riverside site location suited our temperament even though at the time of our visit it was in full use, I suggest booking is essential.
Access to the site from the main road is good although the final few hundred yards is down a steep winding and narrow road with restricted visibility, certainly not a spot for caravan reversing practice, so pay attention to arrival and leaving times, having said that we didn’t experience any problems.
The river South Tyne runs along the North side of the site and a tree covered slope rises up along the south side leaving a long level strip for us campers. A paved access road runs around the site serving a mix of hard and grass pitches as well as the grassed tent area in the centre.
The extended riverside woodland at the east end of the site provided and excellent dog walking area that our mutt greatly appreciated as I did.
