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.

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

Bellingham also have camping pods.

We were greeted very professionally and very warmly.

This review is for Bellingham

We were greeted very professionally and very warmly. The site is very clean and well maintained. The toilet and showers are immaculately clean. The pitches are spacious and it's nice and quiet. The site is a 20mins stroll from Bellingham which is a quaint village with a co-op, bakery, butchers, general store, Chinese takeaway. There are several pubs. Access to the site either by caravan or motorhome is good. We look me it and will return.

a trip away is always a special event and our stay here was no exception.

This review is for Bellingham

a trip away is always a special event and our stay here was no exception.excellent site warm welcome lots to look forward to especially the gardens tour we were booked on. the day started well fine weather lovely blue skies later at Alnwick and howick gardens.do not miss out on the cream teas at howick so you can recap a excellent time spent by all. next day a gentle walk with good company taking in marvellous scenery with a river along side on the way back. look out for otters you never know! so the next time your booking look at all the site details as we did and try something different you will not regret it.one last thing listen out for the cuckoo before they return home as your home coming may beckon you.

This was our first time on a Camping and Caravan site and I am afraid our last.

This review is for Bellingham

This was our first time on a Camping and Caravan site and I am afraid our last. Please let me explain as it is a personal opinion of ours. The welcome was comprehensive and fulfilled all of our questions. It is not a big site but does not feel crowded when full. There was evidence of continual upkeep and maintenance. In all we had an enjoyable stay. We visited the Observatory, which is an absolute must. Even if it is overcast the enthusiastic staff fill you with knowledge of the night sky and space. We cycled around the 26 miles of excellent quality track around Kielder Water, with some outstanding views. She also treated herself to a Hot Chocolate with Cream, from the bar at the Leaplish stop on the trail. We spent a day on a round robin that took us to Scotland, Cumbria and back to Northumberland. We stopped to see Hadrian's Wall, another thing you need to tick off of your list. It is a fantastic area and a beautiful county. Oh I forgot we also went and visited Hexham Abbey. I am not religious but I was very impressed with the building and we had a pleasant reception from a volunteer, John, who had a vast knowledge of the Abbey. Now for the reasons why we will not be booking another Camping and Caravan Site. On a Friday night a group of tents and campervans set up next to each other and I think it is wonderful to see generations of family spending time together. However the drinking started in the afternoon and I had to still listen to their voices at 2330hrs. The problem with tents is sound carries and it feels like they are in your caravan with you. This is not such a problem with the more solid structure of Caravans and Motorhomes. Another thing was a Rather new Land Rover Discovery arrived and the occupants were allowed to sleep overnight in their vehicle and not put up a tent. I saw this on a second seperate occasion as well. I am afraid this is not for us.
