Stephenson's Arms 

- Camping and Caravanning - 


We are on the edge of Wylam in the beautiful Tyne Valley, surrounded by countryside and yet only twenty minutes by road or rail to the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Wylam, although small in size, has four pubs, two restaurants and a café. It is a very popular local and tourist destination in itself. The River Tyne is within 100 meters of the site and has fishing available. The village has several excellent walks from level to strenuous. The site is located on Hadrians Cycleway Route 72 and is perfectly placed as a centre for cycling holidays due to our rail links to the east and west coasts. Wylam station is only five minutes walk away. Within two miles of Hadrians Wall we are central to a large range of attractions and amenities. From the fabulous North-East coast to the Metro Centre, there is something for everyone within very easy reach.



Stephensons Arms used to be one of 7 pubs in Wylam serving customers from the old mine and Wylam North train station until the line closed in the 1960's. 

It has been in the same family since 19th Century and as well as a being a pub, it was a caravan site for private owners for over a century.

Now, owned by Phil Appleby and ran by his children it is a Camping and Caravanning Club certified site.
