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 Pennant Gold Award.

This review is for Bellingham

Just a night on this nice little site, lovely area and lots of helpful info from reception which will no doubt tempt us back. We took a ten minute stroll down to the Tyne and the village is a further ten minutes or so on via a riverside park. Very peaceful little site, good winter time pitching and obviously popular, many thanks.

Found the owner abrupt and condescending. The site is lovely and the facilities are great. It would be nice if they had a selection of board games in the games room aswell. Everything was clean and the park area was nice.

This review is for Bellingham

This was my first trip out in my motorhome, the site and staff were a brilliant introduction for a newbie like myself. The site is very clean and the pitches seemed to have plenty of room. As a cyclist the location was perfect, onto quiet roads as soon as you left the site, kielder water is 9 miles from the site. The village of bellingham is within walking distance and has a good array of pubs, also a bakery and co-op to stock up your larder. A bus service is available directly opposite the site entrance. The Hareshaw Linn walk is a must for all the family. If i was to be fussy i would of liked a place where i could hose my bikes down. Overall a great 4 day stay
