Alan Rogers Review

Although only 2.5 miles from Hexham, Fallowfield Dene Caravan Park is very secluded, situated in mature woodland at the end of a no-through road. Set in woodland glades (formerly a Victorian lead mine), each with a Roman name (Hadrian’s Wall is close), are 118 seasonal pitches and 32 touring pitches, all with 16A electricity. A further ten tent pitches have been added, suitable for smaller tents. The park entrance, with a new reception and shop, is neat, tidy and very colourful. There is no play area or games field, but the surrounding woods are a paradise for children.

Fallowfield Dene itself is a network of tracks and there are footpaths from the site entrance. The site is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels, foxes and badgers to be seen. Hadrian’s Wall is only a mile away, with Roman forts such as Houseteads Fort and Chesters being great attractions. The whole area abounds with well preserved Roman remains. Nearby, Hexham market town has its Border History museum, housed in the oldest purpose-built gaol in England, where one can learn about the Border Reivers. This site has a very friendly atmosphere.
