The package adventure of 
                   Hadrian's Wall Camping

Hadrian's Wall Camping is a lovely and very quiet location only surrounded by sheep 


Travelling along the South Tyne River means an inevitable confrontation with Hadrian’s Wall.

Near Haltwhistle the river flows close to the course of the wall between Greenhead and Walwick.

The location of Hadrian’s Wall Camping, northeast of the historic town of Haltwhistle and less than a half mile from one of the most beautiful stretches of the Wall, makes it a popular stopover for walkers. 

But the team of Travelling along Rivers found out that this site has much more to offer than just staying there for one or two nights. Settling down here with our camperbus we experienced the different pleasures of this site. In the first place we faced a lovely and very quiet location in the unspoilt hilly countryside of Northumberland, offering breathtaking views, especially from the higher parts of the site.


Only 5 minutes walk from Hadrian's Wall

Back packers walking the wall, tents, caravans and motorhomes are all welcome to this camping. Although it feels like the middle of nowhere the location is ideal to give car or camper a few days rest. It takes only 15 minutes to walk to Hadrian’s Wall and using public transport in the nearby surroundings is also easy.

Talking to Graham, who owns the site together with his partner Sue, means a lot of information about the possibilities while staying here. He realizes that many visitors choose this site because of the ideal location in relation to Hadrian’s Wall. But Graham points out that this beautiful setting has much more to offer than just this famous landmark. “We are centrally situated for touring to the Lake District, Kielder Water and North Pennines. All these places are on less than an hour driving distance. Also the interesting cities of Newcastle and Carlisle are within easy reach. More closer to the site there are walking routes in every direction, making it an ideal place for those who are interested in wildlife, history and archaeology.”


Recently Graham and Sue prepared a concept for a ‘package adventure’ in which they offer an entire package, designed for individual groups needs, including meals, transport and accommodation. This package is leaving everybody free to enjoy the best aspects of Hadrian’s Wall country.

Different possibilities

Graham: “We are thinking about a stay between four and ten days. Beforehand people can choose from different possibilities, like guided walking tours, lunch with local food in pubs, visits to museums etc. This package is also suitable for groups without own transportation. The railway station of Haltwhistle is nearby and if desired we will pick up anybody anytime. If necessary we also arrange transportation to and from airport and ferry.” In addition Graham points out that another advantage of this tailor made package is the chance to get in touch with local people and their way of life. “By that means you do get the most out of your trip.”

The Roman site annex museum Vindolanda is worth a visit while travelling along Hadrian's Wall. Archeologists are constantly working on excavations

To experience how Graham likes to work, we asked him for an advice for a full day walking trip around the campsite. With a big smile he provided us with a homemade drawing, showing the route to the nearby Hadrian’s Wall, the part of the Wall he gives the description ‘most dramatic stretch’, the Visitors Centre Once Brewed, the pub Twice Brewed, the Roman site annex museum Vindolanda and the route back to the campsite through vast meadows full of sheep, lambs, cows and birds.
A tiring but unforgettable experience.
