Understated private camping in the unspoiled Northumberland countryside
Suitable for tents, caravans, motorhomes, campervans, children and well-behaved dogs

‘We promote camping in a natural, non-commercial environment’

Walkmill Campsite is a quiet and peaceful campsite encircled by the River Coquet. Amongst idyllic woodland and wild flowers across the meadow in mid-summer, Walkmill is a tranquil site on a smallholding of over 8 acres.

Facilities include four toilets a shower and a bath along with a shared kitchen, lounge area and a mini-shop. The pleasant 30 to 40 minute walk to Warkworth Castle takes in the riverside passing by the hermitage and once in Warkworth the wonderful sandy beach stretches for miles.

Warkworth to Amble is quite an easy 3 mile walk or cycle on flat paths. This walk explores the River Coquet before the Northumberland Coast around Amble where there are boat trips to see the ‘Puffins’ on Coquet Island. Walkmill Campsite is within a mile of the Coast and Castles route from Newcastle to Edinburgh, so makes a good overnight stop for cyclists..

Customer Reviews

Such a lovely spot, in a beautiful part of the world. A lovely campsite, great peaceful atmosphere. Lovely clean facilities. Very helpful and pleasant owners. Would highly recommend.

Louise Dean

Lovely owners! Beautiful clean site and a fridge! The sounds and sites of nature were all around me... I'll definitely be back!

Hilary Baxter

Our pitch was perfect, plenty of space for our 10 night stay. We saw herons,buzzards and sparrow hawks. We heard the owls at night and the stars were very clear. The amenities were clean and rarely crowded. It was nice to have fresh milk, meat and a homemade cake if we fancied from their honesty box shop 😊. We would definitely visit again.

Julie Hutchinson

We were blown away with this peaceful site. It was well kept, the pitches were an excellent size, the facilities as stated and very clean. Both the owners and other campers were delightful. We will be back!

One of my favourite campsites:clean and quiet. A gorgeous site with long grass and huge trees. Enjoyed watching the bats and barn owl in the evening. Good facilities as well, hot water, can charge phones and fridge.
