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.

This review is for Bellingham

Staff were very helpful even crawling under my motorhome to try to find source of a water leak on my motorhome. The site is quiet and peaceful but it is an easy walk to the village which has very good butcher, greengrocer etc plus a great grassy area en route to play ball with the dogs. There is a lovely walk up to the waterfall and other places of interest within short drives. On site the toilets and showers were very clean. A great site.

This review is for Bellingham

Booked this site as a last minute camping trip for myself, friend and our 2 children, prices were excellent, campsite is spotless, constantly cleaning it, games room for the children, we all played table tennis etc, lots of electric points to charge your phone etc, even had a refuge room with a kettle, TV, computer and table and chairs incase in was raining, it's a short walk into Bellingham its self mile and a half in total there and back, there is a hotel at the bottom called the river dale hotel which also allows the you to use the swimming pool for �2.00 per person. The town centre has most shops that you would need, 1 take away which is Chinese, but a few pubs and cafes. Quite central to a lot of places, also just out the gates about a 5 to 10 minute walk there is a big river which you could take fishing nets for the kids. Overall a lovely place and we are thinking of booking up for August but staying longer this time.

This review is for Bellingham

The location of this campsite makes it an ideal base for exploring Northumberland, there is so much to see and do. Unfortunately the site itself was a disappointment. Due to a high turnover of campers it seemed more like an overnight car park than a campsite. The gravel road around the site was very noisy with constant traffic and water carriers being dragged along it. It was not a site for sitting quietly and relaxing. The staff were generally friendly and helpful until there was a problem. At the weekend a group of 3 tents arrived, they had an immediate disruptive impact on the campsite, they had a loud radio and their children were totally out of control. This went on all day and late into the evening. Apart from asking them to turn the radio down (which they did briefly) the staff were very reluctant to deal with the situation. We will definitely return to Northumberland again, but not to this campsite.

This review is for Bellingham

Commitments meant we were only staying one night but would have arranged to stay longer had we known what a nice little site this was. Even though this was a busy Friday afternoon we were welcomed as if we were their only guests. Bellingham is a delightful village and it and the site's position on the Pennine way make both well worth a visit. My wife thinks their showers the best she has experienced on any campsite.
