We are a high-quality, 5 star (Visit Britain) accredited, family owned and run Touring Caravan, Campsite, Bunkhouse & Wigwam Site.

We are situated in the Heart of Hadrian's Wall Country just a mile from Hadrian's Wall and 1 mile north of the "Centre of Britain" town of Haltwhistle.

It is just a 15-minute walk from our site to the most complete part of the World Heritage Site of Hadrian's Wall and the Centre of Britain town of Haltwhistle. We are also just 3 miles from Vindolanda, which is the halfway stop off camp for Hadrian's Wall runners and walkers.

We have eight Wigwams. Three are ensuite with private outdoor hot tubs.

We have a luxury amenity block with underfloor heating, unisex sauna, private bathrooms, cycle store, drying room, laundry room and a combined disabled/family bathroom.

The Independent newspaper rate us one of the top 50 greatest British sites to stay at, and added that our "toilet and shower block would put many a hotel to shame".

We are the only site in the UK where you can hire one of the fabulous TentipiĀ® Nordic Tipis. Our tipis are for a true wild camping experience. They are located at the bottom of the campsite in a separate area. Our Safir 8CP tipi's can accommodate 4 comfortably. Each tent has the original stove that can be used but safety is paramount. Children must be supervised at all times due to the heat of the chimney and stove.

We sell kindling and logs too. The tipis are pre erected and have wooden floors. Our bunkhouse is a great addition as it gives campers the option of having a fixed bed. We have a small self- service kitchen area with electric hob, microwave, kettle, sink and crockery/utensils.

We can also offer breakfast rolls and pizzas as per the menus and times, as well as packed lunches. Sleeping bag hire available too.

We now have a 3 bedroom 6 berth 45ft. by 22ft. timber-framed lodge, made in Cumbria. It is furnished to a high standard with all home comforts including plasma TV, DVD, free wifi and a great outdoor non slip decking area with a 5/6 person hot tub that is set to 38 degrees. We serve home cooked Pizzas and breakfasts as a takeaway service.

The Sustrans Cycle Route 72 & 68 are within half a mile. The Hadrians Wall bus AD122 that runs (Easter to the end of October) between Carlisle & Newcastle stops right outside our gates so you can get full access to the area without taking the car.

We have a fabulous children's outdoor play area. This includes a Roman fort, toddlers pirate ship and a large disc swing. We are the proud owners of three young black male Alpacas (Knight, Mamba and Minstrel). They are the firm favourites of our visitors who enjoy seeing them keep a watchful eye over our hens and ducks. We also have two donkeys and our resident Guinea Pigs and Rabbits are also here for you to see and children to pet.

We provide the perfect place for both day visitors to Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland National Park and tourists planning a longer stay to enjoy the delights that our Border County offers.

Our Caravan, Camping & Wigwam site is open 50 weeks of the year, so come any time. Whether you are staying with us for an hour, a day, or a week, you can be sure to have a warm welcome and we look forward to meeting you soon.
