  • Well-maintained small rural Northumberland touring site
  • Kielder Water, Alnwick and Newcastle within a 40-minute drive
  • Dog-friendly site with peaceful pitches; great area for walking
Historic estates, castles, Roman walls and miles of spectacular Northumberland countryside… that’s some of what’s in store nearby when you put down roots at Elf Hills Farm in rural Northumberland. This may be a small place (with just a handful of pitches on site), but it is also a rather well-located one… Near the village of Cambo, this site is in a fine spot for days of walking, either in the nearby Northumberland National Park, in the area around Kielder Water or over at the coast (you can’t go wrong with any choice, really). As for those history buffs among you, there’s plenty of that around too, in the form of National Trust properties, Hexham Abbey and the Roman attractions of Hadrian’s Wall. You might even like to throw in a bit of urban time in the centre of Newcastle, 40 minutes’ drive away. Whatever you choose to fill your days with, you’ll be coming back to a peaceful site where the pitches are pleasingly spacious and have access to mains water, chemical disposal and electric hookups. Dogs are welcome too, and barbecues are permitted on site. There are also a couple of pubs about 15 minutes’ drive away if you fancy eating out.

Electric grass touring pitch

Liked: Small campsite with only about 7 pitches. The views were beautiful. Perfect time of year for all the little lambs. The camp warden was friendly and helpful with directions and helping set up a campfire. Would love to visit again.

Disliked: No toilet facilities but the site was upfront about this before we arrived. The road to the campsite is a little steep

Electric grass touring pitch

Liked: Small rural site in peaceful setting. Superbly run by John and his cute, very sociable 4 legged friend, Tilly. Well situated for visiting historic sites and freedom to walk anywhere on the farm was much appreciated.

Electric grass touring pitch

Liked: We had a great stay here, it was so quiet and peaceful all the time we were here. The kids loved the room to be able to play and not disturb anybody. There was plenty of room between pitches with awning up and car parked at the opposite side of the caravan. Views of the fields and surrounding areas from the caravan was lovely. The kids loved watching the sheep in the field directly behind. We walked up the farm lane every night which gave the kids time to burn off some energy on there scooters before bedtime. The grounds were well kept also. Will definitely stay here again in the future.

Liked: Loved my stay at Elf Hills. Facilities were great. I felt super safe staying there. It’s so quiet and when the stars come out it’s amazing. Loved being able to hire a fire pit. John the warden is super helpful. Really looking forward to returning.

Local attractions

Live like you’re back in the old times… you may soon start to feel that way, with so many historical properties in the area surrounding Elf Hills Farm. Stroll the grounds of a Victorian villa at the National Trust’s Wallington (10 minutes’ drive), explore the Victorian rooms and tools at the National Trust’s Cragside (25 minutes) or have a good lose-yourself type of wander around the large Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens (15 minutes). More historical sites aren’t far off either – perhaps the Chesters Roman Fort and Museum (25 minutes) or Vindolanda (40 minutes), another Roman site, for a look at a whole different time period? Alnwick Castle (40 minutes), where there are Harry Potter-themed activities? Hexham Abbey (35 minutes), a Grade I-listed location? Set your sights on the stars instead at Battlesteads Public Observatory (half an hour). By daylight, it's easy to pick up the pace with cycles, walks and wildlife spotting around the lake at Kielder Water (35 minutes). In Newcastle upon Tyne (40 minutes), you’ll get a taste of the city life, and some cool landmarks, such as the 12th-century castle, the Gateshead Millennium Bridge and the Quayside.
