Our Inspector's View

Located above the town of Haltwhistle and very close to Hadrian’s Wall, this developing glamping site is ideally suited for walkers, ramblers and historians alike. Separate from the touring area at the bottom of the site on a rolling hillside, the wooden wigwams, tipis and Lotus Belle tents enjoy panoramic views. Each unit has electric heating and seven of the wigwams have their own toilet and washbasin; all units have full use of the modern amenity block located between the glamping and touring areas. Bedding is provided in the Lotus Belle tents only. BBQs and fire pits can be hired, and there is a sauna too.

About The area

Discover Northumberland

If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.

Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
