NEWs from THE SITE - 2022.

SITE IMPROVEMENTS.

 

We have listened to your suggestions, worked hard and now have managed to erect a new toilet and for the first time a shower! 

In addition, we have made repairs to the track leading to the site, a demarcation fence to separate the Camping and Caravanning Club site from the rest of the field and we now have a new site telephone with a new telephone number. As such, please replace any old number you may have for us.

The toilet and shower are not quite ready yet as they need to be plumbed in but we are hoping to do this before May (timescale dependant on tradesman availability).

We are still trying to improve the signage to the site but as the lampposts are owned by the local authority, we need to confirm signage with them. 

If you have any other suggestions on how we can improve then please get in touch and let us know. 

 

Hadrians Wall 1900th Anniversary.

 

2023 marks the 1900th anniversary of the start of the construction of Hadrians Wall.

From the 24th January to 23rd December  2023 several events are happening up and down the length of the UNESCO site.

Stephensons Arms Camping and Caravan site is less than 1 mile from the Hadrians Wall walk and a perfect place to set up camp if you were to enjoy these events.

introducing a deposit for the site..

During the winter break we noted that we had an awful lot of bookings that never turned up during last season. Because of this, and the limited number of guests we are allowed on site, we had to disappoint a large number of people during 2021.  

To avoid this for the start of the season, this year we are changing our practice by asking everyone with a fixed unit staying on the site to pay a deposit of £10.  

 

The cost of the deposit may increase if ‘no show bookings’ do not curtail in the future.
