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.

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.

So pleased to find Bellingham, lovely moorland site but walk to super village lots of pubs, cafe, shop etc. Family were lovely and so helpful as my first trip. Thanks so much for help fitting the gaz cannister. The site is so well adapted for all campers and vans, quiet and spacious. The facilities were superb good hot showers and a nice kitchen for meals and drying room and washing facilities. My previous night in a farmyard in force 8 gale with no facilities so this was a haven. Lovely-will use as centre for visits to NT sites. Guess walking would be fab in Cheviots. Lizzy

There are a whole host of activities to do near to or from the site. Walking, Cycling, access to the village and Heritage Centre, as well as a programme of weekend activities to suit all tastes. Facilities are constantly being upgraded and pitches are separate and well thought out. Site staff couldn't be more helpful.

The staff on this site were extremely helpful.

This review is for Bellingham

The staff on this site were extremely helpful. Nothing was too much hassle and everything was explained in detail. The pitches are mostly level side to side which is not always the case. If anything could have been better it would have been more waste disposal points. There is one chemical waste point which we found to be very clean. That was fine but out of the two service points that catered for both fresh water and refuse, only one had a waste water drain. The site itself is in a superb location. The town of Bellingham itself is beautiful and traditional with lovely walks near. We can't wait to visit again in the summer.
