Haltwhistle Camping and Caravanning Club Site can be found off the busy A69 road to the south of Northumberland National Park and Kielder Forest Park. Its central countryside location and proximity to local amenities and attractions means it is one of the best caravan parks in Northumberland. Open from late March to early November, we have a range of serviced pitches and welcome motorhomes, caravans, and tents onto our site.
Electricity hook-ups are available with our pitches, while you will find convenient access to washing up, laundry, and waste disposal facilities across our entire site, in addition to Wi-Fi internet that you are free to use for the duration of your stay. We invite you to bring your pets along with you to savour the surroundings and atmosphere of this terrific Northumberland campsite. The National Trust manages our whole site, and its position in a clearing within Bellister Wood means it is well sheltered from the elements when the weather is poor, but perfectly positioned for the days when the sun is shining brightly.
Wildlife is a big feature of our site, and while you’ll have your pitch to yourself in terms of other people, don’t be surprised to see woodpeckers and a range of other birdlife sharing the space with you.
Our site is only a short distance from the small town of Haltwhistle, which features local shops and places to eat, as well as a 12th century church and various other historical landmarks. The “Haltwhistle Rings” are a series of local walks – there’s 22 in total – which provide plenty for you to do if you want to be out and about but don’t wish to venture too far from the park. Also on the doorstep is the River South Tyne, where you can enjoy fishing or riverside walks. National Cycle Network routes, including the South Tyne Trail, also pass by the site, meaning you have everything you need for an active or relaxing holiday, depending on what you’re looking for.
Further afield, the A69 takes you into the heart of Carlisle and Newcastle-upon-Tyne depending on the direction you drive in, while you’ll also discover a wealth of small villages and other attractions like golf courses and farm parks along this coast to coast road.
Whether a base for exploring the north of England or a place to escape and relax, you’re sure to love your stay at Haltwhistle Camping and Caravanning Club Site.

Haltwhistle town is full of history and contains a 12th-century church; a peletower, now a hotel; and five other Bastle Houses (defensible houses) from its Border Reliving past. You can also enjoy the local countryside on the Haltwhistle Rings, a series of 22 local walks.
Other local activities include the South Tyne Trail, part of the National Cycle Network, half a mile from the site; and fishing is possible in the River Tyne for those with a rod licence.
There are lots of historic attractions, too. Featherstone Castle is within walking distance; Hadrian’s Wall is only four miles from the site and Housesteads Roman Fort is the most complete Roman fort in Britain.
