Valley View Camping: View to the west

General

  • Peaceful hilltop campsite with spectacular views of the Tyne Valley
  • A 20-minute drive to Derwent Reservoir; Newcastle-upon-Tyne 30 minutes
  • Dark sky site for stargazing; gastropub five minutes' walk away

Sitting on the western edge of the sleepy village of Hedley on the Hill, Valley View Camping has a spectacular setting overlooking the lovely Tyne Valley, with a westerly position that's splendid for watching the sunset. The grass pitches are on a level field with masses of space for games and activities, so kids can let off steam safely (perhaps flying one of the kites available to borrow on site) – and it's dog-friendly too, so your pooch can join you on your break.

This is a great spot for walkers, with footpaths starting right from the field, where you might get to see buzzards and rare red kites riding the thermals overhead. Cyclists, you can test yourselves on the demanding National Hill-Climb Championships course that ran up into the village from Stocksfield in 2017.

What’s provided? A portaloo with sink and kids' loo, a mains water tap (not for drinking) and thoughtful extras like complimentary drinking water, tea, coffee and raw (unpasteurised) milk fresh from the dairy herd in the cattle trailer.

And how about some alfresco eats? The folk at Valley View have teamed up with their local butcher to give our guests the option to pre-order campers’ breakfast and/or barbecue packs, all delivered right to your pitch. (Just let them know if you'd like one at least 48 hours before your stay so they can place your order.)

Not up for cooking? An award-winning gastropub is less than a five-minute walk away in the village, with a fire kitchen and takeaway service. Just down the hill in Stocksfield there are regular weekend food trucks at the cricket club and local pub. Stocksfield, Mickley and Prudhoe (10 minutes’ drive) have handy local stores where you can pick up goodies to enjoy around the firepit.

    Lovely site in a lovely village. Owners are very welcoming and friendly and really have made a great job of offering little extras that make the trip all the more enjoyable. The tea/coffee/sugar supply was a great touch, but the fresh milk was amazing!

    Clean toilets and a very well kept tidy site.

    No complaints at all. Hopefully the rain stays away next time and we get to see the view better 😊

    Amazing position on top of the hill with views all around. Great relaxed atmosphere over the bank holiday weekend, especially in the evening with all the fire pits on the go. Perfect for kite flying :) Several pretty little villages close by, all with good pubs. Really helpful welcoming owners.

    Stunning views over the valley. Perfect spot for a beautiful sunset. Only basic portaloo facilities but they were clean. Heather was lovely and friendly and I was able to hire a fire pit which added to the whole experience. Location felt remote but was also conveniently located near a village and a pub was in walking distance.

    Long grass , plus all the dead grass got everywhere, ground very uneven.

From the manager...

Our site is a wild camping site, not a maniured campsite. Our pitches are very generous and are on level ground, but not smooth like a lawn. We make it clear that we are a working farm.
We keep the grass on our pitches cut short and had infact just cut the whole field for silage before this guest stayed, so there was no long grass. This review is certainly at odds with those of our other guests the same weekend, so not reflecting our site, but more of personal expectation.

Directions


When arriving from the west (Stocksfield, New Ridley Road direction), the site is in the first field on the right just after the Hedley village sign. The gate is just before the first house you see.

When arriving from the east (Greenside, Chopwell, Ebchester or Prudhoe direction), the pub will be on your left. Continue to the end of the village and the gate to the field is just after the last house on the left.

Local attractions

What with the Tyne Riverside Country Park (20 minutes’ drive) and Northumberland National Park (30 minutes’ drive) being so close, it’s time to get those walking shoes on for bracing hikes and gorgeous views. Chopwell Woodland Park (15 minutes) has plenty of easy walks along former railway lines that suit families with young kids.

Cycling trails criss-cross Northumberland, with arduous options for long-distances bikers along the Coast to Coast Path, and waterside rides around Derwent Reservoir (20 minutes), which is also a great option for anglers looking for a spot of fly fishing. Lucky old golfers are spoilt for choice too, with several courses within a 15-minute drive of base camp.

The historic towns of Corbridge (20 minutes) and Hexham (30 minutes) are packed with cosy tea shops and arty boutiques, and it’s only 30 minutes into Newcastle for big-hitting attractions like the Life Science Centre and Angel of the North sculpture.

Must see

  • Prudhoe Castle (2.7 miles)
  • George Stephenson's Birthplace (4.6 miles)
  • Gibside (5.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Cherryburn (2.1 miles)
  • Gibside (5.8 miles)
