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.

This review is for Bellingham

As our first experience of staying in a motor home on a camp site, we couldn't have asked for more. The owners were very welcoming. We had no doubt that had we needed help they would have been more than happy to be approached. The facilities were spotless and at this time of year, we had them all to ourself on some occasions. The site was well lit but not too much so as to spoil the dark sky and we had no qualms about using them after dark. It is a site ideal for nature lovers. The highlight was the sheer peace. As we lay in bed we went to sleep to the sounds of owls hooting and woke up to bird song. The night sky was as spectacular as we had hoped. The milky way was visible on 2 of the nights and my husband who's a keen astronomer was able to use his telescope despite it not being a star camp. We couldn't recommend it more highly and hope to be able to return, perhaps using the little pods for 2 nights next time as an alternative to hiring a motor home.

This review is for Bellingham

The site is located within easy walking distance to the village of Bellingham which has pubs, cafes and all the usual shops. Nearby is Hadrian's Wall which offers interesting walks and history. In addition plenty of other walks in the area, the wardens keep some waterproofed maps and guides for local walks. The site was clean with all the necessary facilities. If I was nickpicking I would suggest that a better dog walk on the site would be helpful, the little walk is too near some of the units and is not really long enough for dogs to do the necessary morning and evening however it is only a minor issue. Generally a great site and we will return.

This review is for Bellingham

Finding the site was easy, the hard standing wasn't as big as I thought but the staff were happy for our awning/tent on the grass. Lovely facilities and sometimes even got wifi working! Lovely pubs close by and a great walk to a waterfall the dog really loved and the pub was dog friendly. The weather turned out to be great which always helps!
