  • Small family-friendly farm site in the Northumberland countryside
  • A 25-minute drive to two beaches and Hadrian's Wall
  • Nature walk around the site; firepits available to hire; pubs nearby
A simple stay surrounded by the Northumberland countryside? Oh, go on then… bed down at Tranwell Farm Glamping, a peaceful family-friendly site 10 miles from the Northumberland coast and five minutes’ drive away from the market town of Morpeth. This off-grid site is a good base for tracing the historic Hadrian’s Wall, roaming around local castles or simply strolling along the sandy Northumberland shoreline (there are two beaches 25 minutes' drive away). It's also won awards for its commitment to sustainable tourism, so you know the team here are doing all they can to make your stay a minimal-impact one. You're likely to get pretty chummy with nature here, as the grassy pitches are surrounded by trees too. If you rise early enough, you may catch sight of a deer if you're lucky. Plus, there’s a leisurely nature walk around the farm for all those who aren’t quite done with wildlife spotting for the morning. Afterwards? You might put your feet up and let the countryside views sink in (and think about doing the same with the clear views of the skies at night). There are firepits available to hire on site, a dishwashing area for guests to take care of any pots and pans and an amenities block for a quick freshen up. When you feel like having a meal out somewhere nice, there are plenty of varied restaurants, pubs and cafés in Morpeth within five minutes’ drive of the site. Budding chefs can gather their ingredients from the food shops five minutes’ drive away too. Please note that this site is entirely non-smoking.

Non-electric hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: A lovely countryside campsite with toilet and shower facilities a washing up area and information hut. Very peaceful and perfect for a dark night looking at the moon and stars. You are only a few 100 metres away from a country road but feel as though you have left the Hussle and bustle of life far behind. Lovely nature walks for the children, a dog walking field and only 1/2 hour walk to a great country pub.

Disliked: Nil

Meadow non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: The owners, very helpful and attentive to their guests. The pitches, good size and level and each had a picnic bench. The views. The nature walk and dog walking field. The shower and toilet block is really clean and modern. The water temperature fluctuates at times but is nice and warm. The location is central for exploring the north east and less than 10 minutes from Morpeth by car which has plenty of options for dining out, shops and supermarkets. It's a little difficult to find, but they send detailed instructions. It's a quiet and peaceful site, the rules on noise were kept by all the guests during our stay. The pitch was pretty damp because of the weather, but not so bad to stop us from staying. There is a hut with solar power for charging devices which works well. It has usb sockets not mains power and there's also a freezer in there specifically for freezer blocks. It's a great site for families with young children, or anyone who likes a peaceful, well kept site with owners who look after their guests. Hard recommend.

Disliked: The weather.

Woodside non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: Very clean toilets and shower facilities, regularly cleaned and topped up with loo roll and soap! Very peaceful campsite with beautiful nature walk and surroundings. Hosts couldn't do enough and were very proactive in providing mud solutions due to weather. Facilities are perfect with charge ports for phones provided, firepits and wood as an optional extra, 2 water stations and nice outdoor undercover pot wash! Love all the suggestions of local attractions and food places. The Sun Inn in Morpeth was fantastic and we had the nice suprise of some live music! We loved Amble - good for buying fresh fish for dinner!! And lots of lovely little local shops! Perfect location to head up north to Bamburgh castle, west to Hadrians wall and south to the Beamish centre! Overall a much deserved 5*

Disliked: Nothing, would definitely stay here again!

Poppy's shepherd's hut

Poppy's shepherd's hut

Liked: Absolutely gorgeous little hut. Clean and very well equipped Lots of little touches, local milk in the fridge, local biscuits and even some mini eggs!! The fire definitely kept us amused and became a bit of a fun competition Check in was beyond easy. Quiet, relaxing, peaceful with plenty of space between us the other accommodation Huge dog walking field right next door. Close to everything. Thoughtful welcome and check messages from Sarah and peter to make sure we had everything we needed. My partner loved the wildlife and was particularly pleased spotting dear. We have already recommended to all our friends An eco friendly site in every sense.

Disliked: We can’t find anything negative about our stay, loved every minute Only thing is more of a heads up. Our stay was during some very heavy rain and the short walk from the car to the shepherd hut was very boggy. Not a problem in our walking boots/ wellies but definitely not any good in everyday shoes.

Hawthorn camping pod

Liked: Excellent dog friendly glamping experience, very spacious pod, everything needed for cooking is provided. Lovely quiet spot with fire pit bbq and picnic bench. Friendly staff with great communication answering any questions. Excellent location for day trips to coast/Northumberland.

Disliked: Only negative point would be the shower/toilet block, although great clean facilities, with only 2 of each this may be busy/waiting around at peak/busy times of the season. Everything else was great

Local attractions

The hiking trails around these parts really do have a lot going for them… ramblers might come back raving about the historic walking route along Hadrian’s Wall (25 minutes’ drive) or the grouse, goats and roe deer that they spotted around Northumberland National Park (35 minutes) Zoos have a greater variety of creatures, whether it’s the farm animals (and tractor rides and playgrounds…) at the Whitehouse Farm Centre (five minutes), the kangaroos and monkeys at Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens (10 minutes) or the snow leopards and lemurs at Northumberland Country Zoo (20 minutes). Golfers should be able to get into the swing of things at the golf course five minutes’ drive away or the N1 Golf Centre (five minutes) miniature golf and driving range. If rummaging through rockpools is more your cup of tea, next up will be Newbiggin-by-the-Sea beach (25 minutes). Sandy Blyth Beach (25 minutes) is also on hand. As for historic places that bring to life old Northumberland, check out the market town of Morpeth (five minutes’ drive), Newcastle upon Tyne (25 minutes) and Alnwick Castle (half an hour). The latter’s re-enactments and archery activities will really get you feeling like you’ve gone back some centuries.
