Why stay here ...

Chillingham Barns Caravan Site sits in the Heart of the North Northumberland countryside. Set on a farm between the rolling Cheviot Hills and breathtaking Northumbrian coast, it is rural, tranquil and peaceful.

Our site is a flat and spacious lawned area with easy, wide access, electric hook up and ample space for awnings. Adults, children and pets are welcome, and we have a short woodland path that all our visitors are more then welcome to use.

Chillingham Barns, although rural, is in easy reach of local amenities – Chatton village with a local pub and shop is approximately a mile away, and Wooler and Belford both six miles away. The area is popular with hill, moor and coastal walkers with the site itself a mile from the iron age hill fort of Ros Castle and Chatton Sandyford moor beyond, well known for its many public footpaths and historic Neolithic cup and ring carvings and stunning scenery.

The site is also perfectly situated to explore the local attractions. The historic market town of Alnwick, The Alnwick Garden and Castle are nearby as is the coast with its many castles such as Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh and Warkworth to name but a few. The Holy island of Lindisfarne is also a popular spot with visitors not far away. There are also coasteering, kayaking and windsurfing activities run throughout the summer on the coast. Closer to home, Chillingham Castle and the famous wild cattle park is also only five minute walk from our site, and Chatton Fishery a couple of miles down the road. We are also near to Rothbury and the Northumberland National Park, thirty minutes drive from the Scottish Borders and within an hour of the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hadrian’s Wall.

So if you are after a peaceful getaway or a base to adventure and explore Northumberland, Chillingham Barns is your ideal spot.

A peaceful gem

Chillingham Barns
We spent almost a week here with our son, wife and 7 year old. It was just perfect. There's a big grassy field with plenty of space to give privacy. The water and waste corner was immaculate. There was a small shed with masses of information about the surrounding area, not to mention fresh eggs ( in season ) lovely jams and chutneys with an honesty box. The small woodland walk adjacent to the site was lovely and very popular with our grandson and Ami's 2 young sons. You know when you meet someone and think ... if I lived nearby we could be friends .... that was Ami! She was unobtrusive, helpful if needed and so friendly. The site is well situated for so many interesting places to explore and we shall most definitely be back! Thank you Ami! William is already planning his next visit ... just a tad far from Bangkok !!

Absolute gem of a site

Chillingham Barns
Visited this perfect site for a week in May 2022. Ami the owner is just delightful. Very pleasant, is there if you need her, but also let's you get on with your holiday. The site is very easy to find, straight off the A1 with no difficult narrow roads to negotiate. Large double gated entrance, makes for very easy access. Large field with plenty of space between sites for 5 caravans, even with full awnings up. Clean and tidy waste and chemical disposal area and 2 clean water taps. There is even a little hut with leaflets of places of local interest and homemade jams. The birdsong is beautiful and we will miss watching the Robins finding food every morning. There is even a lovely woodland walk right next door. We saw an Owl in the daytime, which was amazing. As a seasoned caravan goer, I honestly can't fault this site at all. We certainly hope to go back. Thank you Ami.

Stopped for 2 nights in September on our way to Scotland and enjoyed the site so much we returned for 3 nights on our way back home. Chose the site initially so that we could turn left on to the A1 to continue to Scotland, having previously had bad experiences staying at sites on the east of the A1 so that we had to turn right on to the A1 to go north. Continued our journey home by travelling west to Wooler and then south on the A697 - good road. Great views from the site and easy access to both the National Park hills and the coast. Attentive and helpful owner. We will return.

Brilliant site!

Chillingham Barns
What a fantastic site! So quiet and peaceful. The lady running it is so friendly and helpful. 1 hard standing pitch, the rest level grass. There is a small woodland walk in the wood right next to the site and you can hear chiff chaffs and yellowhammers calling to each other. Hares will often cross the campsite too. There is a little area by the information hut which has free range eggs, home made jams and chutneys (honesty box for payment). I highly recommend this site!

Beautiful spot

Chillingham Barns
Peaceful, quiet and surrounded by stunning scenery. A warm welcome from Ami, the owner, what more could you want?! The site itself is neat and tidy with all the basic facilities you would expect . Would definitely return when in that neck of the woods again.
