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

What a brilliant site! A very friendly welcome, well kept site, nice and tidy with great facilities. We enjoyed four nights here as a little mini break. We managed to fit in an evening meal at Cheviot Hotel pub in the village, a lovely walk to the local Hareshaw Linn waterfall, lunch at the Carriages tearoom, a 10 mile cycle at Kielder Water and a bus ride out to Hexham for lunch and a look around the Abbey. We will definitely be returning as we haven�t even visited anything to do with Harian�s Wall yet! The club do a lot of organised events over a four night stay which we are thinking about doing next year. What else can we say - brilliant!

There were 21 of us, 12 adults and 9 children, mostly in tents, but also in pods and a guest room. It was perfect especially the use of a large communal room when it got colder at night. There were games,pool and ping pong and TV. We had quizzes, sing songs, a little drink and a lot of laughs. The facilities are spotless and the staff amazing. We seldom saw them because it is run so well. We walked and cycled in the area and enjoyed the space.

This review is for Bellingham

Stayed here for 3 nights and were made very welcome by the staff. They had a good knowledge of the surrounding area and recommended many places to visit. On first morning I had a fall and David and Joanna couldn't have been more helpful , taking me to their local doctor's surgery where the nurse there dressed my badly gashed hand. Joanna even called back later to take us back to the site. Plenty to do in the area including Keilder Forest and water. Also Cragside . Riverdale Hotel ,a pleasant walk to the village, was excellent.

Camping for the wettest snowiest Easter in years was not our best move.

This review is for Bellingham

Camping for the wettest snowiest Easter in years was not our best move. However the friendliness and helpfulness of this superb site more than mitigated the weather. The drying room and large refuge area were well used. It is walkable to the village. It is not too big. The shop is well stocked with necessities and local produce so you can order rolls etc. The fish van comes weekly. We had forgotten our tarpaulin and had problems with the cooker, but site staff went out of their way to be helpful and all were always cheery. Altogether fabulous.
