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 a relaxing break as well as those seeking adventure.

This is a level, well maintained 70 pitch campsite with modern facilities including a shop, short dog walk, children’s play area, warm indoor social space, kitchen, drying room, family wet room and games room.

There are numerous walking and cycling opportunities from the site. 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 North Tyne riverbank, 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 (25 mins drive). At Kielder, there are many cycle trails, fishing and watersports. As befits an International Dark Sky Park, the area has exceptionally low light pollution and offers breathtaking night skies. A visit to the Kielder Observatory takes you closer to the stars.

We Stayed at this site for 3 nights.

This review is for Bellingham

We Stayed at this site for 3 nights. We were made very welcome at reception and given a good deal of information on the site and the local area.the warden guided us to the pitches to show us around. we were given the choice of pitches as there were many free being midweek.we choose a good sized pitch which was hardstanding. After the first night we moved to a pitch further away from the road due to noise from lorries. The site is very well laid out and generally level. There were excellent views of the hills all around from anywhere in the site. There was and excellent play park for those with children.the toilet block was excellent and clean. There was a shop on site which was very well stocked with groceries, local produce and caravan camping goods. We had our dog and there is excellent walks from the site. The warden had printed maps and guides for local walks which you could borrow, which we did. It is only a short walk into Bellingham which has all the local facilities you could need with a butcher, Bakers, fruit and veg shop, Coop supermarket, hardware shop and cafes and pubs and takeaways. An excellent site in a beautiful area. We would certainly return.

Bellingham is a great base for exploring the Kielder Forest and surrounding area.

This review is for Bellingham

Bellingham is a great base for exploring the Kielder Forest and surrounding area. The site is on the outskirts of Bellingham village, close to pubs, cafes a bakery and a small supermarket. From the site we walked along the river to Hareshaw Linn, a beautiful valley and waterfall. There are also several cycle routes along the roads adjacent to the site. Kielder Firest and lake is a short drive away. The site is undergoing improvements and seems to be very well organised. I would recommend a visit.

This review is for Bellingham

http://oldage-travellers.blogspot.co.uk/2017/03/bellingham-northumberland.html Our first real trip of 2017 - if you don't count staying at Edinburgh's Mortonhall Camp Site for a visit to Holyrood to see and hear our First Ministers Question Time - was not too far south of the Scottish Border. Bellingham is a lovely traditional Northumberland village sitting on the banks of the River North Tyne and on the edge of Northumberland National Park. This wee town has selection of small shops, a Co-Op, a cafe, restaurant, Chinese Takeaway and a fuel garage. It also has a Heritage Centre, which unfortunately did not open until the 31st March. Another interesting landmark is the 13th century (substantially reconstructed in the early 17th century we are told) Grade-1 listed St Cuthbert's Church that is described as 'almost unique in England' owing to the stone barrel vault roof. Situated just a twenty minute walk from the village is the Bellingham Camping and Caravan Club Site, which we found to be an excellent base for our seven-day excursion. It borders the Pennine Way and has some long distance cycle routes, it also has a bus stop situated right outside the site gate, a Service 680 bus will take you (when the road is not closed for resurfacing) directly into Hexham. The site is extremely well run, facilities were exceptionally clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
