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.

Where to start.

This review is for Bellingham

Where to start. My wife recently retired, I have been for a few years now and decided to embrace the camping life for the first time. We purchased a 6 man tent and all the paraphernalia so that we could take grandbairns too. I blazed the trail and booked into Bellingham so set off on the 2 hour trip from Edinburgh with my two Whippets. On arrival David and Johanna were extremely welcoming and helpful. Problems started when trying to put the tent up!! Despite a cunning strategy worked out beforehand .......1 person pitching a 6 man tent is not a good idea. However within minutes of struggling, 3 seperate fellow campers kindly assisted me. The 4 nights spent there flew in. Immaculate toilet/shower block and staff always cleaning, cutting grass etc.with the 5***** well deserved. Smashing shops in the wee village with a wonderfull hardware store which you do not see much of nowadays, which had the items that I had forgotten to pack but needed. I will definately revisit soon (with the much needed extra hands)

This is a lovely site, very quiet and well kept.

This review is for Bellingham

This is a lovely site, very quiet and well kept. The facilities where very clean and all the staff where friendly and helpful. My only criticism is the showers. They are a push button type with each burst only lasting 30 seconds, the first 15 seconds the water was scalding hot. This is on every push of the button making it incredibly frustrating. There are notices up on the wall saying the water may be to hot for children. We ended up taking the kids to the local pool to get them showered. Despite this we had such a fantastic time here we can't wait to book again.
