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.

I would definitely recommend this site and I will go back again.

This review is for Bellingham

I would definitely recommend this site and I will go back again. This is possibly the best campsite I've ever stayed on. It was easy to find and really well laid out. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable about the local area. The facilities are absolutely superb. The showers & loos were spotless, but the best of all was 'Wansbeck House' - a well-equipped kitchen, drying room, games room and large social room. We took advantage of this as there was one night when it was very cold, wet and windy, so we were glad to take refuge in there and make a proper meal in a proper kitchen. The location is lovely, quiet and sheltered, and right on the edge of the Kielder Forest, where there's lots of outdoor activities for walkers, cyclists and fishermen. The local village of Bellingham is a short walk from the site and has a couple of good dog-friendly pubs - we had a good meal in the Cheviot - a Co-op shop, a butcher, a bakery and a Chinese takeaway, which I believe will deliver to the campsite. About 20 minutes drive away is the historic market town of Hexham, with lots of independent shops, and interesting places to visit such as the old Gaol and the Abbey. Then, of course, there is Hadrian's wall. There's two forts close by, Housesteads and and Chesters Roman Fort and Museum, where you can learn about the history of the Romans in the area. My favourite excursion was to Cragside, a National Trust property about 45 minutes away. It's a fascinating house - the first in the world to be powered by hydro-electricity but, for me, the grounds were the best part - such a beautiful landscape of woodland, a maze and lakes. You'll need a whole day to see it, and even then, you'll want to go back again.

We stayed here recently for eight nights, the longest we have ever stayed on a single campsite.

This review is for Bellingham

We stayed here recently for eight nights, the longest we have ever stayed on a single campsite. We had originally planned a three night stay but, on finding how great the site was, the staff were most helpful in securing us a place for the rest of our holiday. We have always found CCC staff most friendly and helpful but this team beat all the others hands down! What a lovely team of staff, ensuring that everything was as it should be and continually at work on the site doing improvements. The facilities were excellent and kept immaculately clean. There is a small shop on site with essentials but there is also a Coop within walking distance in the village. We were lucky to catch Stage 2 of the Tour of Britain and the weekend BAA music festival, adjacent to the site. Bellingham is a lovely little town, within easy walking distance, and has lots of lovely places to eat and a good variety of shops. It also has a very interesting Museum and lovely Railway Carriage Tearoom. Kielder Forest is near by with excellent cycling and walking routes. The site is wonderfully located for many of Northumbria's attractions. We still have more things to see and visit in Northumbria and will be booking back in here on our next visit.

This is a very busy site, but still good space between vans. Facilities good.

This review is for Bellingham

This is a very busy site, but still good space between vans. Facilities good.short walk into village for amenities. Only down side is the site doesn't drain very well at the bottom of field. It did rain pretty heavy ,we were on hard standing which water didn't drain away,this meant the awning floor was standing in water. The staff did come and try to sort problem. Beautiful area for walks .
