Cool-Campsite on a Hadrian's Wall Camping Trek

Cool-Camping with Style

SORRY - NO MORE CAMPING TREKS AVAILABLE FOR 2017

 

Itinerary There are six options to choose from -

West > East
Four-Day (Carlisle > Heddon) 55 miles Self-Guided Trek
Five-Day (Bowness > Heddon) 70 miles Self-Guided Trek
Six-Day (Bowness > Wallsend) 84 miles Self-Guided Trek

East > West
Four-Day (Heddon > Carlisle) 55 miles Self-Guided Trek
Five-Day (Heddon > Bowness) 70 miles Self-Guided Trek
Six-Day (Wallsend > Bowness) 84 miles Self-Guided Trek

Accommodation - We have two Cool-Camps set up next to the Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail - being located on two working farms. One is based in the Cumbrian countryside and the other in the Northumbrian countryside.
Those choosing to walk the full 84 miles of the Trail (Bowness > Wallsend or Wallsend > Bowness) have one of their nights under a roof, on another working farm, in a village just to the west of Newcastle.

Daily Routine - Trekkers are picked up where necessary and taken to their startpoint for the day, or their accommodation location for the night. They don't have to walk as a group, but are free to walk at their own pace, in whatever company they prefer, self-guided with their map, to their pre-arranged destination point.

Six Itineraries to choose from

55 Miles

Carlisle > Heddon-on-the-Wall

£195 per person*

(*Price based on Two Persons sharing - £25 Solo Supplement)

4 Day Self-Guided Walk - 4 Nights Accommmodation

Nights 1 & 2 - Cumbrian Farm Camp
Nights 3 & 4 - Northumbrian Farm Camp

Carlisle Start - 'Carlisle - Heddon' Cool-Campers are collected at a pick-up point in Carlisle late Monday afternoon (before 5.30pm) and taken to their first night's camp (being the evening before their first day's walk).

Heddon-on-the-Wall Finish - Covering fifty-five miles in four full days of walking, the last day's walk finishes where the Trail on the line of the Wall ends (before diverting down to the banks of the River Tyne).

Monday - Night 1 - Early Evening Briefing (around 6pm) the night before the first day's walk, at Cumbrian camp. The farm can serve a home-cooked meal and has a drinks license. Alternatively, a Chinese Takeaway delivery service is available.

Tuesday - Night 2 - Having been collected in the morning at the camp, your First Day's Walk (5-6 hours) is by the banks of the River Eden, from Carlisle into the Cumbrian countryside, back to where your camp is situated.

Wednesday - Night 3 - Second Day's Walk (6-7 hours) is from the Cumbrian farm camp, past Birdoswald Fort, then up on to the Northumbrian Whin Sill, to a pick-up point (a traditional Country Pub) near the Wall's most central point. The pick-up time is generally between 7pm-8pm, so it's a good opportunity to tuck into a tasty pub meal (which is likely to be particularly welcome at the end of a good day's walk), before going on to the camp where you are based for Nights 3 & 4.

Thursday - Night 4 - Having been collected in the morning at your Northumbrian camp and taken back to your previous day's finishing point, your Third Day's Walk (6-7 hours) continues along the Whin Sill, past the Wall's highest point, as well as Sycamore Gap & Housesteads Fort and back to your Northumbrian camp overlooking the North Tyne valley.

Friday - Last Day's Walk (6-7 hours) from the camp, crosses the River North Tyne past Chesters Fort and then follows the line of the Wall to Heddon-on-the-Wall, where Trekkers are reunited with their heavy bags.
