Welcome to Hemscott Hill Farm at Druridge Bay.
We are a family farm on the Northumbrian Coast and offer accommodation to guests in a beautiful farm cottage, as well as beachside camping in the summer.
We operate our campsite as The Bells of Hemscott and as well as camping pitches we have 6 Bell Tents that can easily accommodate a family of 5 and a Shepherd’s Hut that is a cosy retreat for a couple.
The Bells of Hemscott is a pop-up canvas village going up for part of July and August only. Both the Bell Tent Camping and the traditional camping are located in the dunes, just a short hop from the beach. The facilities are basic with compost loos, washing up huts (cold water) and a couple of gas powered eco showers being all that we have. We’re not a fancy glamping site but offer comfortable tents ready furnished if you don’t have your own.
If sleeping outdoors isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Poppy Cottage is a beautifully refurbished stone cottage that sleeps 4 just a short stroll from the beach and Calico Barn is our Bunkhouse that accommodates up to 18, ideal for cyclists and walkers.
Dogs are welcome in Poppy Cottage and in the traditional camping area but are not allowed in Calico Barn or in the Bell Tents.
One other thing not to miss on the farm are our alpacas. We have a small herd of boys that we use for farm walks. Spend an hour leading one of these gorgeous animals around the farm fields and you’ll forget any worries that you might have!
We look forward to welcoming you to Druridge Bay soon!
