Tyne View Camping

15 units · Motorhomes, Tents10 acres · Chopwell, England
Tyne View Camping is a peaceful spot in Tyne and Wear, not far from Hedley on the Hill village. It's on a farm run by David and his family, who welcome guests to enjoy the beautiful countryside views. You can see the Tyne Valley from the camping pitches, which is great for stargazing at night. The site is basic with just water taps and toilets, no showers, but there's lots of space for kids and dogs to play. You're allowed to bring a barbecue or firepit for cooking, and you can buy supplies in Prudhoe nearby. Or, you can walk to Hedley on the Hill for a meal at a top-notch pub. There are plenty of things to do nearby, like walking in the woods, playing golf, or trying gliding. You can also visit Hadrian’s Wall, Newcastle upon Tyne, or explore the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for a varied and enjoyable break.

Nearly-wild camping @ Heggs Farm

1 unit · Tent136 acres · Reeth, England
Get back to basics and immerse yourself in the joy of simple living with a nearly-wild camping experience @ Heggs Farm, Arkengarthdale--part of a collaborative, 200-acre renaturing project, spanning the northern tip of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stretching from the wooded banks of the Arkle Beck, up to the dizzying heights of Fremington Edge, our site is a wonderfully biodiverse and off-the-beaten path spot, offering adventure-loving families and small groups the chance to unplug completely, and get a taste of no-frills camping, the way mother nature intended. What's more, every booking is for exclusive use of the camping area by you and your group, guaranteeing you a truly unique (and undisturbed) experience. Why Heggs? Get a taste of 'wild-camping' with a few bare bones facilities: Pitch up where you like, make the most of a private firepit cooking area, and enjoy our compost loo with a view. Our remote, no-frills site is the perfect intro to simple living; yet sits close enough to 'civilisation' to hike out for picnic supplies, and/or a pub dinner. Reconnect with nature through wholesome, unplugged activities: Fill your days with poo sticks, pebble skimming, and foraging for kindling. Spend your evenings playing scrabble by torchlight, identifying owl calls, and marvelling at the constellations in our Dark Skies conservation area. No wifi = no distractions. Explore endless routes right from the doorstep: Arkengarthdale is one of the Dales' most beautiful yet undiscovered valleys. Multiple bridleways and footpaths connect Heggs to Reeth and Langthwaite, running along both sides of the Arkle Beck, and up the slopes of Fremington Edge. Part of the adventure is getting here: Our walk/cycle-in-only camping area is all part of the magic of our tucked-away site. Free bag transfer is available to our farmhouse from the nearest public parking in Reeth or Langthwaite (40 mins walk), and the camping area lies a further 200m along a rough grass track. (Please note we cannot accept campervans or trailer tents). Every stay plants trees, literally: All profits from nearly-wild camping support our ongoing habitat restoration as part of the Heggs-Castle renaturing cluster. Enjoy the 'feel-good' factor as you roam free across the site and explore our latest woodland creation areas. Find out more at heggscastlecluster.org. What's included/provided with my booking? -Exclusive use of the camping area for you and your group (up to a max of 8 people), including compost loo and firepit with grill. -Access to weatherproof cow byre HQ for storage of camping equipment, including bikes. -1 x wheelbarrow load of firewood, with kindling and natural firelighters (more can be bought on site). -Unlimited potable water in canisters with taps. -Large Ghillie Kettle, firepit cooking utensils and heatproof gloves, biodegradable washing up liquid, washing up bowl, tea towels, first aid kit, fire extinguisher. -Bag transfer from/to the nearest public parking place on arrival and departure. Please pack everything else you need to sleep, cook (portable gas stoves welcome), eat, and keep yourself and your equipment safe; remembering that you’ll have to carry your own gear for the last 200m to the cow byre, and then beyond to wherever you pitch up. Note too that the site is completely unlit after dark, there are no charging facilities, and phone signal can be spotty. Headtorches, camping lanterns, and portable battery chargers are all strongly recommended. Where can I stock up? Our local businesses would love your support! Award winning bread, cafe-quality ready meals, and Thursday night pizzas can be pre-ordered for collection at Two Dales Bakery; the Bike Centre is known for its incredible cake selection (and excellent rental service); Reeth Post Office sells the usual camping cupboard staples, as well as local milk, cheese and sausages; and Reeth's Friday morning market has all your meat, cheese, and fruit and veg supplies covered. For dining out, there are five pubs within easy-ish walking/cycling distance: The CB Inn, The Bridge Inn, The Black Bull, The King's Arms and The Buck. Ramsay’s Fish and Chip Van also visits Reeth between 4-6pm every Friday evening; you’ll find it parked up in Langhorne Drive. Finished reading and not sure it's for you? Search for our off-grid annexe on AirBnB for simple, off-grid living with a few creature comforts e.g. hot running water, a bed and a bath. This can also be booked in tandem with our nearly-wild camping area, subject to availability.

Campsites near Newcastle upon Tyne guide

Overview

In the area surrounding Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England, campers can discover a world where ancient history converges with dramatic landscapes. The formidable Hadrian’s Wall, dating back to the 2nd century, stretches across grassy hills, while the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty showcases the majestic Bamburgh Castle overlooking one of England’s best beaches for swimming. Northumberland National Park’s serene expanses, Kielder Water and Forest Park’s tranquil shores, and the wild heather moors and wooded river valleys of North York Moors National Park also define the region. Camping options abound near any of these main attractions—from shepherd’s huts on moorland country farms to tent and caravan pitches for traditionalists.

Where to go

North York Moors National Park

South of Newcastle, North York Moors National Park is a captivating expanse of heather-clad moorland, wooded river valleys, and a rugged coastline dotted with timeless villages and ancient stone monuments. Of course, there are also a range of on-site camping options, from rustic tent pitches to glamping pods and luxury yurts. Wake up from any camping site and walk across several trails that crisscross the park, including Cleveland Way National Trail passing through coastal and inland sections for a diversity of wild viewpoints. Historic landmarks in the park include Whitby Abbey, of Dracula fame, and Rievaulx Abbey, a Cistercian monastery founded in 1132.

Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

A mesmerising stretch of pristine coastline boasting golden sands and rugged dunes, Northumberland Coast AONB is situated just north of Newcastle upon Tyne. Particularly noteworthy is Bamburgh Beach. Not only is it a great place to go swimming and beachcombing, but majestic Bamburgh Castle sits on a cliff for an especially dramatic snapshot. Campers can find waterfront tent and caravan pitches with easy access to hiking, birdwatching, beach games, and water sports.

Northumberland National Park

The northernmost national park in England, Northumberland National Park is where campers go to find historic Hadrian’s Wall, a remnant from the Roman occupation of Great Britain. Several campsites dot the stunning landscape of sweeping moorlands, peaceful valleys, and sparkling rivers. Plus, as the largest protected area of night sky in Europe, the park is a perfect spot for stargazing. Adjacent to the park is Kielder Water, a gigantic man-made lake that’s great for canoeing and fishing for rainbow trout.

When to go

Camping near Newcastle upon Tyne is most comfortable from May to September, when the weather is warmest and driest. Campers should note that even in summer, temperatures rarely break into the 20s, and it does rain year-round. Spring and summer are great for wildlife viewing, especially for swallows and swifts returning for breeding season, or colonies of puffins and guillemots along the Northumberland coast. Summer is also festival season. Check out the Mouth of the Tyne Festival to enrich the camping experience around Newcastle.
