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.

Stayed here many times over the last 5 years and every year the site is improved. For us it has everything you can wish for. Very friendly staff, beautiful location, within walking distance of a nice village with several good eating places and the river. There are many interesting places for a day out with the car, or many nice walks from the campsite. Excellent facilities beautifully cleaned. Good facilities for motorhomes.

This is the best site we've ever visited and we will be booking again very soon.

This review is for Bellingham

This is the best site we've ever visited and we will be booking again very soon. In addition to the usual amenities this site provided a beautiful new block containing a well equipped kitchen, drying room, games room, family wet room, sitting/dining/social room with telescope and pc and much to my husbands delight, newspapers in the morning. The shop is great and sells all the essentials and all of the staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The surrounding area is stunning with lots of activities and walking within easy reach. Bellingham is a good village base about 20 mins walk away and has everything you will need. Just book it!
