In the Northumberland National Park, perfect for outdoor activities and great days out.

Located in the Northumberland National Park and Northumberland International Dark Sky Park – considered to be the most tranquil place in the UK – our Bellingham Club campsite will appeal to campers looking for relaxing break as well as those seeking adventure.

This is a level, well maintained campsite with modern facilities, a well-stocked site shop, short dog walk, children’s play area, warm indoor social space, drying room and games room. In addition to its 70 pitches, the campsite offers glamping accommodation in one of its four wooden camping pods. The pods are insulated with sheep's wool and are ideal for autumn/winter camping breaks. There are modern kitchen facilities available for those using the camping pods, larger groups by arrangement, and for general use at quieter times.

Buses to Hexham stop outside the site and it is possible to connect to the buses serving Hadrian’s Wall.

There are numerous walking and cycling opportunities from the site. You can walk to the busy village of Bellingham (20 mins) and then to the magical Hareshaw Linn waterfall through ancient woodland. Enjoy a walk along the riverbank of the idyllic North Tyne, fish for salmon, cycle the quiet lanes to Greenhaugh village, or spend the day in Kielder Water and Forest Park, northern Europe’s largest man-made lake, which is 25 minutes drive from the campsite. At Kielder, there are many cycle trials of varying length and difficultly, fishing and watersports. As befits an International Dark Sky Park, the whole area has exceptionally low light pollution and offers breathtaking night skies. A visit to the Kielder Observatory takes you closer to the stars.

History lovers will enjoy Hadrian’s Wall, Alnwick Castle and Gardens and the remarkable National Trust properties of Cragside and Wallington.

The site is in a lovely area, pitches very tidy and great to have use of brand new communal area with kitchen if weather too bad to cook outside your tent. Playground good for kids too. Short walk to Bellingham for local amenities, The Cheviot Hotel does an amazing Sunday lunch/dinner and very reasonable price. Hadrian's Wall very close with Chesters Fort a must. We really enjoyed our short break but will recommend and hope to visit again with friends who would book one of the new camping pods.

This review is for Bellingham

This was our first visit to the site; on arriving, we found the staff to be very informative and friendly, offering helpful tips & information regarding the facilities & the surrounding area, where to eat, drink, places to visit, walking�s & cycling etc. After being shown to our pitch, you can understand why this site has been awarded with five stars, all the staff takes great pride and it shows, as the facilities are clean & well maintained, which is something you don�t always find when camping. The only drawbacks are that this site is based at the side of a road, which looking at it you would think, that it was a quiet country lane with not much traffic, but no, motorist & motor bikers use it as a race track as a National speed limit is enforced, so be warned. Screaming kids running round and in front of your tent for what appeared to be most of the time whilst we were there is also a downside, this is not so funny when all you want is peace & quiet, therefore maybe the owners might consider this when taking bookings from people with no kids. Perhaps an adult�s only section could be created, after all this site is quite expensive to stay on where a minimum of 3 nights stay is required over the Bank holiday period.
