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

Only stayed a couple of nights to check out all the features of my new motorhome. New to club. Staff were all very welcoming and helpful - I would have struggled without their help. Site had everything I needed and was very well maintained. Nice toilets and the refuge could have been a godsend if we had more people or worse weather. I will be back. Definitely for the star camp if not before.

The campsite was great with amazing facilities.

This review is for Bellingham

The campsite was great with amazing facilities. We enjoyed a game of ping pong whilst waiting for our pizza's to cook in the communial, spotless, kitchen. There was so much more comfort than we are used to as seasoned campers. The site was lovely, spotless and had everything you could want or need. We were also found the staff working on David's behalf polite and very helpful, pointing out good walks and fishing spots. A lovely couple of days, thank you.

We received a very friendly welcome from the site manager.

This review is for Bellingham

We received a very friendly welcome from the site manager. All of the facilities on the site are very good. The toilet block was always clean and there is even heating and piped music. The site is fairly small but is in a great location for exploring the area. We had a very comfortable stay at the site. I would certainly return to the site and would recommend it to other campers.
