The ‘Cook-house’ is for the use of backpackers and campers alike. A small cooker and free Gas is supplied for the use of backpackers.
BUNK BARN ACCOMMODATION
A centrally heated bunk barn which sleeps ten people is available. Its bookable per bunk per night or for longer periods by negotiation. A discount can be arranged for sole occupancy of more than one night. There are two bedrooms sleeping four and six people in bunks beds. Bed Linen can be hired. Basic cooking facilities are provided.

OUT AND ABOUT
The site is located less than half a mile from the most dramatic stretch of Hadrian’s Wall between Newcastle and Carlisle and is ideally placed for visiting many of the Roman sites.
As well as being a World Heritage site, Hadrian’s Wall was opened in May 2003 as a National Trail Path between Wallsend on the east coast and Bowness-on Solway on the west coast.
There are walks in every direction making it the ideal place for those interested in wildlife, history and archaeology within breathtaking scenery.
The Penine Way and the new cycle trail and Penine Bridal Way are also on the doorstep!
Vindolanda and Roman army museum are close by and well worth a visit and Haltwhistle (the centre of Britain) is close by.
The site is centrally placed for touring – the Lake District, Kielder Water, North Pennines and Gateshead Metro Centre are all less than a hour’s drive away.
For the more sedentary visitor the Hadrian’s Wall bus enables you to visit the full length of this magnificent Heritage site in comfort (full details are available from the campsite).
