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.

The site is in a country area and is a well maintained secluded site.

This review is for Bellingham

The site is in a country area and is a well maintained secluded site. There is a half mile walk to the village which has a few facilities for shopping. The Rocky Road Cafe provides lovely snacks or meals and the staff there are friendly and helpful. Overall I would recomend the site to others but consider that there are only afew facilities for children. You will have to travel to view sites such as Kielder or Hadrians Wall. Hexham is probably the biggest town for more shopping should you require it.

The location of the campsite is absolutely stunning.

This review is for Bellingham

The location of the campsite is absolutely stunning. It's far enough away from Hexham to be peaceful but only 20mins walk away from Bellingham so you still have access to a small co-op and other amenities. We stayed for 12 nights and we will definitely be going back. The facilities on the campsite are kept wonderfully clean and the little details the site has added make even the toilet emptying a joy. They have a family washroom which helped us out a lot but we also used the showers in the ladies with no problem. Our pitch was right next to the park so we could set up the awning etc. while the kids played. The onsite shop sells a selection of camping/caravaning equipment which was useful as we only had plastic pegs for the awning so needed to purchase some metal ones. They were very reasonably priced too. The shop also sells local produce and the eggs were delicious. I really would recommend this site. The staff go above and beyond to help and are chatty and friendly. It was a real pleasure to stay here.

Just returned back from a very wet week.

This review is for Bellingham

Just returned back from a very wet week. We had booked a grass pitch and I even called ahead to ask if i could pitch a gazebo too. The grass area is very close to the play area which is great when you have young children so they can have a little independence and still be supervised from a distance. It also meant I could get the tent pitched (and down again) whilst they were kept busy. On arrival one of the team walked us to our pitch. They seem very strict on the distance between units, which made it feel like we weren't on top of anyone. The (female) toilet/shower block was always kept clean and despite only being 3 showers, I only had a brief wait and it was never really busy. I can't comment on the men's or disabled facilities. Next to the toilet/shower are is the washing up area and again, this was always clean and tidy, with no queues for a sink. A washing machine and tumble drier are in this part too - for a charge. The impressive facility was 'wansbeck house'. Situated behind the main reception is a lovely communal 'refuge' area. There is large kitchen. This was never busy either, but a steady flow of people seemed to make use of it. As I said, it was very wet this week and I was unable to cook outside of my tent so this was a godsend. There is also a large lounge/dining area with TV/DVD for eating and generally relaxing to get some rest bite from the weather. Again, it was kept clean and tidy. A drying room is next door to the kitchen which proved useful for drying out our waterproofs and also towels/swimming kit from visiting the local pool. Finally a games room is at the end of the building. A useful space for thekids, however games equipment could do with an overhaul. They enjoyed playing on the pool table and we hired table tennis bats and balls too. Shop open and sells reasonably priced essentials and kids things. We will be back. Thanks.
