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.

Beautiful spot

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.

Great CL

This is a lovely spacious grassy CL. Very quiet, with plenty of room between each pitch. Smart and tidy fencing around the bins and taps, a tidy information shed, plus jams, pickles and eggs for sale. Plenty of (nice smelling) hand sanitiser points. Lovely friendly owner. Great for exploring Northumberland. We will definitely return. 🙂

A Sightseeing Stay

Very beautiful, peaceful stay at Chillingham Barns. The site is very clean and pretty with a useful information shed, lovely views and plenty of room between each van. Theres also a lovely little wood to walk your dog from the site which is really handy for last thing at night or first thing in the morning. We took a trip to Simonside Hills which was really nice with great views when you reach the top and also went to Dunsborough Castle which took you on a lovely coastal walk then into the ruins if you want to. So much to see in Northumberland so will definitely return here.

Peaceful and Pleasant CL

Lucky to get a pitch here and it certainly exceeded our expectations. No problem with social distancing as there is plenty of room between pitches. Lovely views of the surrounding countryside and well placed for exploring Northumberland. Dog friendly with a nice woodland walk on site.

A Peaceful Haven

We spent 10 nights at Chillingham Barns and couldn't fault the site, surroundings or owners. On arrival, Aimie came to welcome us and give us details of interesting places to visit, and also made the time to come and bid us farewell, when we left. The site is spotlessly clean, due the fact that Aimie always had cleaning solution and cloths in her hand. There is the opportunity to buy homemade chutney and jam on site at very reasonable prices. No extra charges for awnings and loads of space even with 5 caravans, all spaced far apart. We will definitely visit again.
