Make yourselves at home

On our 1.5 acre site  you can chill out and enjoy this peaceful corner of rural Gateshead with your group.

We only ever hire out the site to one group at a time so you'll always have exclusive use of our space for groups of up to 25 people. Whether you are part of a youth or community group, Scouts, Brownies, Cubs, Guides  or a Mother & Toddler Group  this the perfect location for you to have a 1 or 2 night camp in the wild, but still be close to home.




Family events


Although the site isn't open to the general public, we do hold a limited number of events across the year especially for families to spend some time together in the wild, where you can book a pitch for the night. Our Family Camps are very popular and sell out quickly as we keep the number of campers low so that you can enjoy the tranquility of the site.

Get in touch to find out when the next one is, or check on the booking system on the home page.
