  • Well-maintained rural site in a mature woodland two miles from Hexham
  • A mile from Hadrian's Wall and close to Kielder Forest Park
  • Launderette and modern bathrooms on site
With Hexham two miles to the south and Hadrian’s Wall a mile to the north, there’s a whole lot of history in the area around Fallowfield Dene Caravan and Camping Park – and you’ll see that reflected in the fact that the various pitching areas on site have all been given suitable Roman names. This well-kept rural site is surrounded by mature woodlands, and native trees such as mountain ash and silver birch have been cleverly used around the pitches to provide landscaping, views, shelter and privacy. Naturally, that also makes the park a popular spot with local wildlife – you may well spot a fox, a badger or a red squirrel as you wander about, and may hear the distinct tapping of a woodpecker. Fallowfield Dene makes a great base from which to explore the area’s past, but the site itself is thoroughly modern, with high-spec bathroom blocks and a launderette. Large pitches have plenty of space to spread out, and they’re easy to access via well-kept park roads. How to fill your days here? Well, of course it’s a great idea to explore as many of the area’s Roman sites as possible, but there are also lots of activities like golf, fishing, walks in the North Pennines and watersports at Kielder Water. It’s also not far to get to Newcastle upon Tyne or the east coast. Please note that while children are welcome here, there isn't a play area and ball games are not allowed as space is limited. While barbecues are allowed, they must not be disposable. A maximum of two dogs are permitted per booking.

Electric gravel and hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: Nice quiet site,with vehicles parked in small areas surrounded by trees.

Disliked: Disabled shower room wasn't working. Although I reported this, there was nothing done during our stay. Had difficulty using the ordinary showers, as there was little room, and push button made bathing and drying awkward.

From the manager: Thank you for comments, not sure who you reported shower to but I rectified this myself on the 5th June

Electric gravel and hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: What a fantastic site. It's so unbelievably pretty and well kept. It's like living in a secret camping village in the forest. Our pitch was spacious, check in was very straightforward, everywhere was beautifully looked after. And as many others have mentioned the toilets, showers and other facilities were fab. Lovely to walk around and chat to other campers, especially the seasonal pitchers. Will be back for sure.

Disliked: Nothing really. No WiFi at pitch but good to switch it off!

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Ideal location to visit Hadrians wall,Bellingham -Hareshaw Linn waterfall and Kielder water and forest park. Extremely clean modern toilet and shower building.

Disliked: Washing up area looking scruffy and understand bin area located where it is but would be convenient to have a small tea bag bin by washing up area to empty plug hole contents into. Also lawns looking long and pitches of some long standing residents pitches looking weedy and unkept but nothing to spoil a lovely stay.

Recommend to friends Visit again

From the manager: Thank you for your comments, due to the very heavy rain we have had here it has been difficult to cut the grass. Our long standing residents do get reminders about tidying up their pitches

Electric gravel and hardstanding touring pitch

Liked: What a lovely, secluded and well maintained site. This was the last stop for us after a week on the Outer Hebrides, staying on some lovely campsites and despite excellent facilities elsewhere, the shower blocks at Fallowfield Dene were on a different level. You can walk across the fields on a designated path to the village of Acomb which in itself was lovely with 2 pubs and the overall the site was clean, well kept and a great place to stay for a night. The pitch was hard standing as requested, close to an electricity point and within a very short walk of the toilet and shower facilities.

Local attractions

If the site’s Roman theme has inspired you to get out and see some of the original locations, head first to the nearest section of Hadrian’s Wall, a mile away. A little further away, drop into Corbridge Roman Town (10 minutes’ drive), the Temple of Mithras (15 minutes) and Housesteads Roman Fort (20 minutes). Hexham (10 minutes) is a historic place too, but with attractions from a different era like the abbey and Hexham Old Gaol as well as more Roman bits and pieces. For a more contemporary urban day out, make tracks to Newcastle upon Tyne (half an hour) for the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, the Discovery Museum and a whole lot of places to eat, shop and catch cultural events. Truly rural outings are easy to find too – just head a couple of miles south to the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or north to Kielder Forest Park. Kielder Water (45 minutes) has various watersports to try out, plus a bird of prey park.
