Roman Wall Lodges

Camping on Hadrian's Wall

Welcome to a 21st century Lodge and Camping Site

Our site opened in the summer of 2010. Ideally located close to the Hadrian’s Wall trails (walking and cycling) and the beautiful Solway coast, we have facilities catering for all visitors to the area. We are situated between the villages of Monkhill and Beaumont - 4 miles from Carlisle and 9 miles from the start/end of the trail at Bowness on Solway.

Both the Hadrian’s Wall Path and Sustrans Cycle Route 72 are 400 yards from our site. Although the wall itself is not visible between Carlisle and Bowness, the stones and artefacts still exist in various churches and old buildings in the area. The Northern Lake District (Penrith and Keswick) is within a 40 minute drive with the M6 being approximately a 10 minute drive.

We welcome all those people looking for accommodation with a modern attitude towards outdoor living - particularly walkers and cyclists. We have the award-winning designs in self-catering accommodation and camping cabins:

En-suite Cabins (two available)
The cabins are fully equipped for up to four people with a dining room/lounge/kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, fully heated and with TV. We have two of these cabins on site - sorry, but no dogs allowed in the cabins.
Camping Cabin / Wigwam
These are cabins for those who want a little more comfort than traditional camping. They are equipped with a sleeping and seating area, heating and lighting, TV and some cooking facilities.
We have a flat grassed area for tents.

Site Facilities

Please note that all of our cabins are ‘no-smoking’. There is a washing-up area with both hot and cold water, communal room/lounge, reading room including a small library and exhibition, and drying facilities There are facilities to wash and store your cycles, and fire pits and barbecues are available on-site on a first-come-first-served basis.

If you are fed up (as we are) with poor quality communal toilets and showers, we have high quality self-contained bathrooms for campers and cabin users.

We can provide breakfast snacks and packed lunches on site - booking advisable when possible. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on our site but we do not allow dogs to stay in the en-suite cabin or to come into the services cabin.

The Drovers Rest pub and restaurant (offering great food, beer and company) is in Monkhill - 300 yards from our site - see their Facebook page. We strongly encourage people to book meals in advance as this can be a very busy pub - tel: 01228 576 141.
