Bowness-on-Solway

General

  • Tent campsite on the western edge of historic Hadrian's Wall
  • Forty minutes' drive from the Lake District and 20 from Carlisle
  • Licensed tearoom on site

Make like a certain Roman and make for a grand adventure in the north of England... and with the added grand addition of a tearoom too.

Yep, you're off to Hadrian's Wall, the world-famed 73-mile wall running along northern England that was built by the eponymous emperor around 22 AD. And on its western edge at Bowness-on-Solway is the quiet family site of Wallsend Camp Site, a fully-licensed and well-equipped base a short stroll from the edge of the wall.

Fret not though if you're not an ancient Rome aficionado as there's stacks of other stuff to do around here: Solway is in the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; RSPB Campfield Marsh is within a couple of miles of the site, and tiptop walking and cycling trails are all around. For adventures further afield, Carlisle is 20 minutes' drive away and the Lake District within 35.

The site welcomes hikers and cyclists, and can sort secure storage for bikes. After a morning roaming about, guests can have a restful afternoon in the licensed tearoom, or pick up a sandwich to set off out again for a picnic. Packed lunches are available on request.

Amenities include shower and toilet facilities with hot water included; heated bathrooms with hairdryers; an electric vehicle charging point; a washing-up area, and an outdoor stand pipe and dog-wash area. A washing machine is available for an extra charge.

The nearest village shop is four miles away, and the nearest supermarkets, banks and chemist are in Wigton, nine miles from the site.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act.

    Everything about this little site is perfect. The tea rooms and on site facilities are spot on. Owner lyn and her team and very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. Perfect breakfast served at the tea rooms.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. Would have liked to have a bbq but understandable it wasnt permitted due to dry weather and risk of fire.

Lovely quiet relaxing stay, clean facilities, and friendly owners. 07/25/2018

  • Liked: 

    The space, peace, the weather, clean shower and toilet, the tearoom.

    Disliked: 

    There is only one shower and toilet for males and females so only gripe would be waiting for the bathroom when there are more than a couple of tents, especially if you need the toilet while someone is spending ages in the shower.

From the manager...

Thanks for your review and recommendation.

Just to clarify for future guests, there are two complete bathrooms for campers (shower, washbasin and loo)

    Der Platz ist sehr sauber und familiär gehalten.
    Begeistert waren wir von den sanitären Anlagen und der wunderbaren kleinen Abwaschgelegenheit, die wirklich allen Komfort boten, den man sich als Zeltbewohner nur wünschen kann!
    Wir waren mit dem eigenen Zelt da.

We translated your review as best we could...……

The place is very clean and familiar.
We were thrilled by the sanitary facilities and the wonderful little washing-up opportunity, which really offered all the comforts, which one could only wish for as a tent-dweller!
We were there with our own tent.

So we can only assume that the ratings you gave us should be in reverse?

Local attractions

Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Hadrian's Wall is home to several fab and famed Roman Britain attractions including Housesteads Roman Fort and Vindolanda, each just over an hour's drive from the start of the wall but well worth a day trip.

Staying close to home, the first section of the wall from its western end is the 15.5-mile trek from  Bowness to Carlisle passing Drumburgh Castle and  Burgh-by-Sands. The start of the walk around Bowness is top birdwatching land too: look out for oystercatchers, plovers, redshanks and loads more around the dunes, peats and marshes of the Bowness sands.

More nature spotting is at RSPB Campfield Marsh five minutes' drive from the site or easily reached by foot or bike. Species to spot include wading birds, dragonflies, geese and snipe; the reserve also has nature trails, a viewpoint, a play area and a visitor centre.

Must see

  • World Famous Old Blacksmith's Shop Centre (7.0 miles)
  • Carlisle Castle (11.4 miles)
  • John Paul Jones Cottage Museum & Visitor Centre (15.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Wordsworth House and Garden (20.8 miles)
