What Our Guests Say

Here are some of our comments from TripAdvisor, UKCampsites etc:

"The best place you could stay if walking the Hadrians wall path" Reviewed 25 April 2011 

"If you are walking Hadrians wall, book in at Roman Wall lodges, near Monkhill, Beaumont and stay in a wigwam. The hospitality is amazing, The wigwams are fun, the bathroom facilites are better thean any other I have experienced whilst camping and it is a bargain at £35 a night sleeping up to 5 people. My little boys and I didn't walk the wall but we had a great time".  Visited April 2011

"Great Hospitality and outstanding management" Reviewed 17 May 2011

"We stayed at the Roman Wall Lodges for the Radio One Big Weekend (13th and 14th May). On our arrival we were met by Martin (site Manager) at the gate who showed us our accomodation and the facilities which were available to us. We arrived around 8.30pm. The Wigwams are a great alternative to a tent but with the same atmosphere. They were warm and comfortable. On the 14th we pitched 2 pop up tents on the site. Martin was very helpful in advising us as to where would be best to pitch them to avoid the wind (being novice campers this was brilliant). Martin offered to blow up our airbeds as we were travelling into Carlisle to get the shuttle to Radio One Big Weekend. On returning late Saturday night (11.30pm) Martin again greeted us at the gate and advised that the airbeds would not fit in the tents, and that he had put matresses, smaller airbeds in their for us. We were offered breakfast in the morning as we had no facilities to cook (this was great as it was rainning when we woke) This was wonderful we had a private room (family of 4) with lovely fresh coffee and breakfast rolls at a vary reasonable price. I would highly recommend Roman Wall Lodges and will definitely be returning." Visited May 2011

"I really cannot recommend the warm welcome and excellent facilities at this site enough. I stayed here with a number of friends whilst walking Hadrian's Wall. This place is an excellent final stop before reaching your final destination at Bowness. We had lugged tents with us all the way but so cheap were the excellent snug little cabins that we decided to forego pitching and treat ourselves to a bit of budget luxury. And very warm and comfortable we were too. Martin, the site owner, was hugely welcoming and knowledgeable and obviously very keen to produce the best site possible. The facilities are excellent. There are only a couple of bathrooms, but what luxury! Housed in a large log cabin, they are fully kitted out bathrooms with piping hot showers and baths - and no extra charge. Martin also introduced us to his high tech kit drying gizmo - which was very welcome indeed after completing a fair proportion of the previous days walking in the rain - although I fear we owe him an apology for stinking out his log cabin drying our damp kit out. Well, we had been walking for 5 days by this point! And what a joy to have frankly huge breakfast rolls made for us in the morning! I can't remember exactly how much they cost but I do remember thinking that they were way too cheap for the quality and quantity of ingredients. We had the site all to ourselves when we were there and I got the impression that it wasn't often very busy - it is only fairly new though I think. Its is a shame though really cos its a great little site and a really, really welcome one for Hadrian Wallers. If you are coming here off the wall do watch out though: unlike other stops enroute the signage to this place isn't great. Martin explained that he works very closely with the heritage guys, producing a site with excellent eco credentials, but this also means that he's not just stuck his own signs up en route like others have. It's a shame if he's missing custom because of this. There's a decent little pub just round the corner serving good local ale. No food when we were there but they did let us order a takeaway and eat it in. So, yeah, all in all an excellent little site, perhaps especially for weary walkers. "Amazing visit!" Reviewed 2 August 2011

"I visited with my daughter (aged 7) last week. We stayed at Roman Wall Lodges, close (400 yards) to Hadrian's Wall walk near Beaumont/Monkhill. The campsite was fabulous, I cannot speak highly enough of Martin & Julie who run the site, it was everything you could wish for in a site - spotless, very peaceful, the owners are incredibly helpful & knowledgeable about the local area. We stayed in a 'ready tent', with everything set up for us - the tent was lovely and spacious, plus there is a lovely lodge with a room where campers can sit and read/play games etc if they want to escape their tent. They also have wigwams, which we may stay in next time we are down (as we are definitely coming back)! We walked several sections of the wall. The section from Beaumont to Carlisle did not have any visible 'wall' but was a pleasant path alongside fields and the River Eden and took us right in to Carlisle Castle. We also walked from Beaumont to Glasson, which took us along the marsh land beside the Solway Firth, along a straight road which seemed to go on forever. It was pleasant walking, very flat and with a very different kind of landscape than we are used to. We also walked from Once Brewed to Housesteads - this is probably the most stunning section of the wall path, with a more challenging path, but still very pleasant to walk, with nice steep sections to climb, generally on stone steps/well marked path. The views were amazing, and we spent hours at Housesteads visiting the fort there, which gave us a real sense of how the Romans lived. My daughter had a great time pretending to be a Roman, including locking up prisoners and cooking my dinner! I would highly recommend Hadrian's Wall for a visit, not just the 'busy' sections in the middle, as the area we were in near Beaumont was lovely too, not deluged with walkers, and walking in the area really took us back in time. My daughter (and myself) learned so much about history during this holiday, and also were made to feel very welcome by people we met." Visited July 2011

"Just like to say that Martin and Julie who run this place are very nice people, easy to talk to and will go out thier way to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. We stayed on one of the sites Wigwams, Wigwams are awesome i love them and these one have the best amenities of all the ones i've stayed in. Tele !! yes a tele with freeview, microwave, kettle, toaster, heater and a fridge. The bed itself could easily sleep about 5 people . . and i do mean easily. This more glamerous form of camping , "Glamping" appeals to me as i dont need to pack up a tent. The shower block on this site id actually a lodge itself where each wigwam have access to thier own bathroom/shower. Having been used to purpose built shower blocks this was a nice surprise. For a couple it's only £35 per night. Great value for money :)"
