Stonehaugh Campsite is a wonderful holiday location found in the southern section of Northumbria National Park. The site is open from 1 April until 30 September, although if Easter falls in March the park will be open from then.
The park welcomes guests with motorhomes, touring caravans and tents, with electric hook-ups available at a small additional cost. Awnings can be erected at no additional charge, and dogs are permitted at the site on the condition that they are kept on a lead at all times – owners must always clean up after their dogs. In addition, guests are permitted to hold barbecues at Stonehaugh Campsite.
Facilities at this campsite include toilet and shower blocks, washing up facilities and water taps. Also, a number of picnic tables are provided where guests can relax and enjoy their food in the beautiful outdoors.
This campsite is on the edge of the small village of Stonehaugh, where you can find a fun play park suitable for children up to 10 years old. However, there's no convenience store here, although there is a newsagent and small shop in Wark, six miles away (about 15 to 20 minutes in the car), with larger supermarkets in Bellingham and Hexham, both of which are approximately a half hour drive from this campsite.
Visit Northumberland and you'll find there are so many things to see and do. Kielder Forest Park and Northumbria National Park are on your doorstep if you're staying at Stonehaugh Campsite – and this is also a wonderful place for wildlife spotting. From walking to watersports, mountain biking to stargazing, there are plenty of exciting activities you can get involved with here. Indeed, there's the Kielder Observatory, located half a mile from the Scottish border, within the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park.
You might also want to visit Hadrian's Wall. The sheer scale of this World Heritage attraction means you can visit time and again, enjoying walks along the wall, taking fabulous photographs and visiting forts.
In addition, Vindolanda is about a half hour drive from this campsite. Once a Roman auxiliary fort it's an interesting, exciting and educating place to visit. And whatever the weather, there's something to do, as there is an indoor museum as well as the outdoor site.
Perhaps you want to visit Carlisle, which is a little under 50 miles from Stonehaugh Campsite. The magnificent cathedral is well worth some of your time, as is Carlisle Castle. If museums are your thing, then you might like to consider going to Solway Aviation Museum or Scaleby Hill Vintage Motor Bike Museum. Or maybe enjoy a round of golf at Stoneyholme Golf Club.
About an hour's drive from this campsite is the buzzing city of Newcastle upon Tyne. Here there's a castle, Grey's Monument, the smart and modern quayside area, the thriving Chinatown, the striking Millenium Bridge or the Tyne Bridge – or watch a show at the impressive Theatre Royal.
Spend your motorhome, campervan, camping and caravan holidays in Northumberland at Stonehaugh Campsite and enjoy all the region has to offer.
