General

  • Back-to-basics flower meadow camping on a working Northumberland farm
  • Edging Northumberland National Park; Alnwick Castle 30 minutes’ drive
  • Wild camping with moorland walks from site and cycling routes close by

Alnham Farm Campsite is located on a family-run farm deep in rural Northumberland. The secluded camping field has views to the Cheviot foothills on the edge of the spectacular Northumberland National Park, and it’s a smashing base for families keen to explore countryside and the North Sea coastline.

Walkers can disappear off into the national park, with bridle paths and hiking trails leading from the site to wild moorland and impressive waterfalls. Bikers have it good here too, as the camping field is adjacent to the National Cycle Route 68, running north to Berwick-upon-Tweed.

As well as beaches – sandy Druridge Bay (45 minutes’ drive) has miles of space for kids to run around on – this is the land of majestic castles, with wild cows at Chillingham, plus a poison garden and Harry Potter film locations at Alnwick (both 30 minutes) making smashing days out with the kids.

It's an off-grid setup here: the site has spacious pitches with basic facilities including running water and portaloos. There is no electricity so a torch should definitely be on the list of packing essentials, but as this part of Northumberland is in a dark-skies park, you’ll be able to study the Milky Way glittering far above on clear nights. Handily, firepits are available for hire on site if you fear getting chilly while you stargaze (and each one comes with a good bag of logs too).

    Stayed there for the weekend with family and young children. Fantastic location, fantastic hosts, couldn't ask for nothing better. Toilets cleaned regularly and the hosts bent over backwards to help and accommodate, even a fire pit and wood was available for a small charge. Will definitely be visiting again

    Very friendly welcome to this beautiful location. Lots of walking near by and very peaceful. We have everything we need in our van, so didn’t need any facilities. The site is pretty basic, but perfect for a quiet getaway if you’re looking for views, peace, countryside, walking, biking. We’d definitely come back for one or two nights, but probably not our choice for a week long stay as we’d want a few more facilities (shower, sinks, waste disposal etc)
