In the Northumberland National Park, perfect for outdoor activities and great days out.

Located on the edge of the Northumbrian National 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 and a children’s play area. 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 ideal for autumn/winter camping breaks and are also popular with backpackers and cycle campers.

For those who do arrive without a vehicle, buses to Hexham stop outside the site.

There are numerous walking and cycling opportunities from nearby Bellingham. You can walk from the town to the magical Hareshaw Linn waterfall through ancient woodland. There’s more walking to be enjoyed from Greenhaugh village or spend the day in Kielder Water and Forest Park, northern Europe’s largest man-made lake to the north west of Bellingham campsite. Here you can walk, cycle, sail, canoe and water ski. You can view Northumbria’s dark skies here too at the Kielder Observatory.

For history lovers, you can spend an interesting day at Hadrian’s Wall and Alnwick Castle and gardens.

The toilet block was a bit 'stretched' in the mornings when the site was full.

This review is for Bellingham

The toilet block was a bit 'stretched' in the mornings when the site was full. Bellingham village has some useful local shops, especially the butcher and baker. The Heritage Centre was extremely interesting and provided a wonderful cream tea in the old railway carriage outside! One of the most noticeable things to somebody from the crowded south east is how much open space and how few people you see when you see out and about. We had an interesting day in the centre of Newcastle/Gateshead, the Baltic centre, concert hall, the new bridge and many interesting buildings. Plenty of variety of places to eat and drink to suite all budgets. We visited several N.T. and English Heritage properties, the one that really stands out for us is 'Cragside', such an interesting house with many original contents, wonderful gardens including the 5 mile drive. Not to be missed. Other members of our party really enjoyed the boat trip to the bird sanctuaries of the Farne Islands from Seahouses, together with a visit to Lindisfarne over the tidal causeway. Some of us wanted to make a night time visit to the observatory deep in Keilder forest, a word of warning we tried to book just after Christmas and there were VERY few spaces available as it was partly in the school holidays. Of couse booking so far in advance you are taking a chance on the weather!! Plenty more things to see and do on a return visit to Northumberland.
