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.

We visited the site for our first time out in our campervan on New Years Eve.

This review is for Bellingham

We visited the site for our first time out in our campervan on New Years Eve. On arrival we found David very friendly and helpful. We told him we wanted to go for a walk on New Year's Day and he suggested a walk to a waterfall, Hareshaw Linn and even offered the use of a laminated map, which we accepted. We did the walk in non stop rain but it was well worth it. The site facilities a very good and very clean. I don't think we could have picked a better site for our first experience of staying out in a campervan. We will definitely be going back.

The site is very clean and the wardens ensured a warm welcome.

This review is for Bellingham

The site is very clean and the wardens ensured a warm welcome. Despite the extremely cold weather (-2 to -5 at night and 0 during the day) it was still an enjoyable stay. There is a communal room with good heating and a log fire. The site wardens had organised a "star camp" with guest lecturers and plenty of experts to provide advice on the sky with telescopes to view the various stars. The communal room was useful to thaw out after viewing the skies as was the mulled wine put on by the wardens. I would strongly recommend this site to anyone and cannot praise the wardens highly enough for their efforts in making for such a pleasant stay.

We received a warm and friendly welcome (it does count for a lot).

This review is for Bellingham

We received a warm and friendly welcome (it does count for a lot). The site is nice and open, there is some road noise from some pitches but the road isn't exactly busy. There's a barrier for security and a motorhome service point including drive over waste. Toilets, showers and disabled facilities are of a high standard. We were told there was an inside room we could use that had a big tv in and woodburner but our stay was brief so we didn't investigate. Wifi was available. Nice village with all the facilities including beer and food. We'll visit again, hopefully next time we'll actually see some stars.
