General

  • Luxury glamping site 20 minutes' drive from Carlisle
  • Direct access to the Hadrian's Wall Path and other walks
  • Well-equipped pods with ensuite bathrooms and private hot tubs

A little bit of luxury and a lot of peaceful space in a quiet corner of rural Cumbria? If that sounds like a most enticing mix, head to Headswood On The Wall, a glamping site five minutes’ drive from the little market town of Brampton and 20 minutes from the city lights of Carlisle.

The wall mentioned in the site’s name is none other than Hadrian’s Wall, and with jolly good reason too: there’s direct access from here to the mighty Hadrian’s Wall Path, which follows the World Heritage Site for 84 miles from coast to coast. If that’s not enough walking, plenty of other paths can be accessed directly from the site: it’s all rather heavenly for travelling dogs (and their accompanying owners) who need a bit of fresh air and leg stretching.

Hadrian may have grabbed much of the glory, but he wasn't the only Roman who left bits of stuff behind: three fab forts at Housesteads, Birdoswald and Vindolanda are also all within a half-hour drive. Other days out nearby might take you to the Lake District or up into the Scottish Borders, both of which are within an hour’s drive.

After a day full of activity, it’s back to your smart and cosy wooden pod, kitted out with a comfy double bed, ensuite bathroom, TV, wifi and well-equipped kitchen. Luxury bed linen and towels are provided, and there’s space to eat inside or out on your deck.

And the crowning glory of all this? Each pod has its own private hot tub to soak away any aches – bliss after a day of hiking...

    Luxury dog friendly accommodation, which is rare to find. Lots of beautiful walks on your doorstep and the pods have absolutely everything you need in them. Very thoughtfully put together.
    Peaceful and quiet location, we had the most restful weekend. Felt we got close enough to nature without having the hassle of packing up all our camping gear. Would highly recommend and we hope to visit again in the future.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but it would be nice if the check out time was an hour later taking into consideration the cost and the fact that check in time is only 4pm.

    Everything! There was plenty of room, great idea with the kitchen and bathroom. Was very useful. The hot tub was great also. Loved that the area is fenced off for our puppy Milo to run freely around. Took a 40 minute drive to Ullswater lake which was great in the 29 degree heat. Fab walks around the pods. Comfy beds and even clean towels for us to use. Thank you.

Excellent peaceful site with fully kitted camp pod facilties26/08/2019

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    - Nice peaceful location.
    - Beautiful walks locally and short drives to amazing scenery. (Walks to the dam near the site and also outings to Gelts Woods and Hadrian's Wall).
    - Lovely decorated camping pod.
    - Great set-up camping pod with all kitted out kitchen utentials (Little cooker that heated up very well and fast).
    - Nice warm shower. Very hygenic bathroom and nice towels.
    - Amazing, clean hot tub outside our camping pod.
    - Nice space within camping pod for a couple.
    - Very comfortable double bed and liked the touch lamps on each side of bed.
    - Nice freeview TV, which was adjustable enough well to watch from kitchen, dining table, living area or bedroom.

    Disliked: 

    The bathroom mirror positioned the opposite side of the bathroom sink.
    Only having one little portable cooker to cook one thing at a time (but maybe having two in the kitchen space could be a fire hazard).
    No pots draining facility, so hand dried with towels.
    I didn't get an email reply back when I queried about what facilities they have? Such as washing liquid, bath soaps, towels and etc.

    The pods were cosy and well equipped. There are lovely walks on the door step and one even leads to a waterfall. Simon gave us a warm welcome and informed us about local pubs and walks. The pods themselves are in a lovely setting with an amazing view. My puppy, Hunter had an amazing time playing with the other dogs and relaxing. It is so nice to see really lovely dog friendly accommodation

Local attractions

This area’s not all about what the Romans built – it was a most scenic part of the world way before any of them set foot in the land. Still as pretty as ever are strolls the Talkin Tarn Country Park (10 minutes' drive), the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (15 minutes) and the Lake District National Park (40 minutes).

Keep your peepers peeled as you wander and you may just spot a large bird or two gliding through the sky – if you don’t happen upon any, make a visit to the Cumberland Bird of Prey Centre (25 minutes) where you can sign up to have them land right there on your arm.

For something a bit different, slope off to see the planes at Solway Aviation Museum (10 minutes) or take the car up to Carlisle (20 minutes) to visit the castle and Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery or climb the walls at the Urban Adventure park.

Must see

  • Birdoswald Roman Fort (7.2 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (7.9 miles)
  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (11.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Allen Banks and Staward Gorge (17.8 miles)
  • Hadrian's Wall and Housesteads Fort (18.5 miles)
