The closest campsite to Lindisfarne, with uninterrupted views of Holy Island, The Barn at Beal is a very special place to pitch.
This family friendly campsite welcomes guests with tents, motorhomes, touring caravans and campervans, and is open most of the year.
Electric hook-ups are available on all caravan/motorhome pitches (9 in total) and our 12 tent pitches are all generous in size. There's a decent selection of basic facilities, with toilets, basins and showers, plus a covered outdoor area for dishwashing. Anyway, this is a campsite that is all about location, location, location.
This is also a dog friendly site, with a newly opened dog friendly bar. However, if you bring your canine companion, please keep it under control and clean up after it.
In the camping area, where there are paving stones set into the grass, disposable barbecues can be used – but please note that no other form of campfire or barbecue is permitted anywhere else across the site.
The Barn at Beal also has a coffee shop and restaurant – enjoy anything from a cup of tea and a slice of cake, to a three-course sit down meal washed down with a glass or two of wine. There's also a gift shop here.
If you love cycling holidays and you're staying here, you will be pleased to learn that this campsite sits on the Coast and Castles cycle route, which is part of the National Cycle Network Route 1.
The Barn at Beal is located just a short way off the A1, meaning it is easy to get to, as well as being well positioned if you want to visit Holy Island and Lindisfarne – in fact, this campsite and its cafe/shop/restaurant are all on the road which becomes the Lindisfarne Causeway.
Besides taking a trip to Holy Island to visit Lindisfarne Priory, as well as the castle and the National Nature Reserve, you can head south from here and visit the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North Northumberland Heritage Coast, or head south west to the Northumberland National Park, to see the best the natural environment of the local area has to offer on your motorhome, camping and caravan holidays. Also, at Northumberland National Park and neighbouring Kielder Forest Park, you can go star gazing as both are Dark Sky Parks.
A quarter of an hour's drive from The Barn at Beal is Berwick-upon-Tweed, close to the English/Scottish border. Here you can walk along the Elizabethan Walls, the Lowry Trail or enjoy a coastal walk. Berwick Castle and Berwick Watchtower are also there to explore, plus there are lots of shops including some small, interesting, local retailers, or visit nearby Paxton House.
Other things to do nearby include Chillingham Castle, which is about a half hour drive from The Barn at Beal, the remote, English Heritage run Dunstanburgh Castle that's a 45-minute drive from this campsite and which sits on the coast, or you could head across the border and visit Scotland – Kelso and its ruined abbey are three quarters of an hour by car from this campsite, not forgetting Floors Castle and Kelso Racecourse.
So for stunning views when you visit Northumberland, if you want to pitch somewhere you'll never forget, go to The Barn at Beal.
