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.

Can recommend the Cheviot Hotel and the riverside, both dog friendly.

This review is for Bellingham

Can recommend the Cheviot Hotel and the riverside, both dog friendly. Butchers, bakers and local shops really good. Recommend Keilder Observatory, the lake great walking and cycling, see the osprey via a web cam, though no red squirrels seen! This is a lovely place to base yourself for a few days. We cannot recommend it enough.

This review is for Bellingham

We enjoyed all this area has to offer Keilder Water and the Coast and all the beautiful scenery in between - we had four Cairn Terriers with us so we did quite a lot of walking but didn't manage to do any of the Castles and National Trust Houses we found it difficult to access Hadrians Wall with our dogs due to the livestock along the wall. The coastal region especially around Beadnell Bay was great for dog walking and great fun seemed to be going on in the sand dunes riding them with boards. Lovely hassle free holiday no problems parking no traffic jams and lots of fresh air. Good for the soul!

This was my first stay at this site and I will deffinatly be staying again.

This review is for Bellingham

This was my first stay at this site and I will deffinatly be staying again. The roads to the site were a little tight in places, nothing too serious but you will know your off the beaten track. The site is very easy to find. The staff upon arrival were brilliant, so friendly and were the perfect hosts all weekend. The layout of the site is nice with lots of space and privacy. As usual the for a CC site it was clean and tidy, only three showers in each block, however I didn't have to wait so it wasn't a big deal. I was placed next to the trees and could not get a satellite signal however there was a great digital signal so phew no need to talk to the wife.... I kid. This is a gem of a site and I hope to visit again very very soon.

This review is for Bellingham

Staff were very helpful even crawling under my motorhome to try to find source of a water leak on my motorhome. The site is quiet and peaceful but it is an easy walk to the village which has very good butcher, greengrocer etc plus a great grassy area en route to play ball with the dogs. There is a lovely walk up to the waterfall and other places of interest within short drives. On site the toilets and showers were very clean. A great site.
