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.

Bellingham also have camping pods.

Bellingham currently holds a 5 Star rating with Visit England and an AA 5 Gold Pennant Award.

Our second visit to Bellingham.

This review is for Bellingham

Our second visit to Bellingham. A great site, just far enough out of the village to be quiet, just close enough for a nice walk. Dog friendly site,friendly and helpful staff. Very enjoyable stay this year again. Only gripe is my perennial one - showers with push-buttons that only last short periods of time! Please note that you will require 'green' chemicals for your toilet cassettes - this is featured on your booking email and is a new requirement this year, but if you forget, Reception sells the sachets at cost (so I was wishing I hadn't bought a full pack at retail prices!).

We loved it here as we could walk with the dog in every direction.

This review is for Bellingham

We loved it here as we could walk with the dog in every direction. We would recommend the walk to the falls near bye, its only a 2 hour round trip in a wooded valley with the reward of the falls half way though. (The walk also ends in the delightful village where you will find lovely little shops and pubs). what more could a walker ask for?

This was a lovely site and staff very welcoming and friendly.

This review is for Bellingham

This was a lovely site and staff very welcoming and friendly. Shame the toilets were such a distance from the pitches but they were very clean. Some great walks around the area and loads of history close by. Short walk into town with couple of nice pubs(and a few dodgy ones!). Some lovely driving roads if that's your thing. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would like to thank all of the staff for their hospitality.
