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.

The Staff were very friendly and helpful on check in and throughout the weekend. We were a group of 3 tents and a Caravan and they made sure we were pitched together. Great location near Kielder with plenty to do. Would definitely go back again.

This review is for Bellingham

There are numerous lovely walks, and is only 20 mins from Kielder. We did the Hareshaw Linn walk which is a beautiful peaceful walk with great scenery viewing points and a stunning waterfall at the end. We could also recommend the carriage tea/rooms. the staff were very welcoming & friendly and the home baked products are delicious

We stayed here over the new year break.

This review is for Bellingham

We stayed here over the new year break. David and Joanna made us truly welcome from the very minute we arrived and on New Year's Eve put on drinks and nibbles for all campers before the start of new year celebrations. There are some great walks and, as other have pointed out, there is a bus stop outside the gate to various places including Hexham, which if you've never been is a must place to visit. The village of Bellingham is but 15 minutes walk and is great for pubs and supplies. Will most definitely be returning to this site. Thank you David & Joanna ??????

We stayed here for a week in early December 2016.

This review is for Bellingham

We stayed here for a week in early December 2016. David and Johanna are very friendly, welcoming and helpful and very pro-active in maintaining and developing the campsite. We attended the star gazing event they organised - very successful in terms of the number of people who stayed on the campsite specially to attend the event. Despite the cloudy skies and the inability to actually see any stars, the talks given by astronomers were interesting and informative. Just one event that David and Johanna organise throughout the year. The village of Bellingham is lovely, easily walkable from the campsite, especially via the river path. There are several cafes in the village serving some scrummy cakes and hot chocolate! There are some lovely walks from the site too including one to the waterfall, Hareshaw Linn. Also within reach by car are various National Trust properties, Hadrian's Wall and the town of Hexham. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are intending to return in the not too distant future to see all the places and do all the things we ran out of time to do.
