  • Wild-style camping on a peaceful working farm opposite Lindisfarne
  • A 10-minute drive from Bamburgh and 15 minutes from Seahouses
  • Well located for Ross beach; good stopover from the A1 two miles away
Elwick Campsite is set in a peaceful location on the spectacular Northumberland coast, an area of outstanding natural beauty in the rural north east of England. This site is excellently located for trips to the holy island of Lindisfarne (a national nature reserve), visiting the castles that line the coast up to the Scottish border or exploring the many secluded beaches in the local area. These pitches have uninterrupted views over open countryside, while a walk up to the top of the site gives you access to far-reaching views over Lindisfarne. This laidback spot has a no-frills approach but does have some well-maintained basic facilities, with running water, portable toilets and a chemical waste disposal tank made available to guests. Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Elwick Campsite (limited to two per pitch), but as there is livestock and wildlife all around it is essential that they are kept fully under control at all times. The farm is in an easily accessible location, about two miles from the A1 and the nearest village of Belford (for a couple of pubs, a café, a small supermarket or a fish and chip shop). The nearest beach is in Ross, roughly five minutes away by car, followed by a lovely mile-long walk along a footpath.

Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: I cannot recommend this site enough!! Me and my partner stayed here for August bank holiday, directions/important info was given prior to our stay by Susan via email and we received such a warm welcome by her after our arrival. She really made such great effort to ensure we were happy with our stay and location, and she does an amazing job at keeping the toilets clean! Thank you Susan! The campsite is in a perfect location, 10 minutes from Bamburgh and 15 minutes from Seahouses & holy island, such a great spot to visit these areas within 2 days (if you’re limited on time).

Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch

Liked: The campsite is beautiful and really well kept. The owner is fantastic and helped us with recommendations on where to go. The site is close to Bamburgh beach, just a 10 minute drive to the beach and to seahouses, which is the local town. Parking is free to the beach if park along the sandunes and just hop.on over to the beach. The toliets are portaloos, although kept immaculate by the owner. There is a huge field on site so the children are able to play and enough space to walk your dogs. The pitches are really level and the ground is great

Disliked: It's a shame it's not open all year round as it is a great place to visit.
