Bolbec Manor Campsite: Scenery

General

  • Spectacular views in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • A five-min drive from Derwent Reservoir; 30 from Durham and Newcastle
  • Barbecues and campfires allowed; pub and restaurant right next door

No need to go far to conjure up magical views from Northumberland’s Bolbec Manor Campsite: it overlooks Muggleswick Moor and is on the north-eastern edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a wildlife and walking haven making up the second biggest AONB in the country.

As you’d expect, outdoor adventuring is all around here, from moorland hikes over the North Pennines and further west around the Yorkshire Dales National Park, to roaming the paths of Muggleswick woods to the south. The Derwent Reservoir, one of England’s biggest inland waterways, is five minutes’ drive away for sailing, windsurfing and lakeside cycling; fishing and golf are close by, and city days are easily sorted at Durham and Newcastle, each 30 minutes’ drive away.

Bolbec Manor has toilets, shower facilities, a washing-up area, chemical disposal and a drying room. Barbecues and campfires are allowed; the nearest shops are at Shotley Bridge five minutes’ drive away and Consett within 10.

As a peaceful site, no loud music is allowed (the soundtrack here will be provided by the hens that scratch about on site).

    Friendly staff, nice pub next door, good shower, not too big so easy to access facilities, great stargazing

    Disliked: 

    Traffic noise, wouldn't stay again in a tent but if in a caravan or camper would definitely. Looks like trees planted by the road so will probably reduce this in time

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

An easy – and recommended – first stopoff is Derwent Reservoir, in a handsome setting a few miles from Bolbec Manor. Take a hike (or stroll) on the well-maintained paths to Pow Hill Country Park on the south shore or Millshield picnic area on the north, or take the longer bike route around the reservoir covering some local roads as well. Drop into the visitor centre for info, the key to the bird hide on Derwent’s western edge, or a fishing permit: Derwent is a popular pick for Co Durham trout fishing.

Around the North Pennines AONB, it’s well worth the 45-minute drive to Ninebanks near Hexham to access Isaac’s Tea Trail, a circular 37-mile route from there to Alston via Allendale and Nenthead. The same distance to the south and also well worth the drive is the famed waterfall of High Force, where the entire River Tees plunges 21 feet over a cliff; get to the waterfall via the Pennine Way stretch crossing the Moor House Upper Teesdale National Nature Reserve.

Also to the south, the market town of Bishop Auckland is home to Auckland Castle and its 800 acres of parkland, and to Binchester Roman Fort (this is Hadrian’s Wall land), a Roman fortress on the banks of the River Wear. Somewhat more modern history is at Durham and its must-see stunning cathedral.

Must see

  • Prudhoe Castle (12.2 kilometres)
  • Gibside (14.2 kilometres)
  • George Stephenson's Birthplace (15.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Cherryburn (10.8 kilometres)
  • Gibside (14.3 kilometres)
