Bellingham - The Essence of Northumberland
Base yourself at our campsite to discover the true spirit of Northumberland and relax in the warmth of the Northumbrian way. In the English Borders, this is an ideal base for outdoor life in the stunning Northumberland National Park and for exploring either the East or West coast. Our compact site has 70 level grass and hardstanding pitches, 4 camping Pods for hire, high quality facilities and free Wi-Fi. Children and pets are most welcome. The well-stocked on-site shop sells local produce and all the basics you might need.
The local bus stops at the site entrance, but there is so much to do without travelling far, for tasters, why not stroll into Bellingham a traditional Northumbrian village with its heritage centre, tourist information centre, shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants where you can eat local before walking to the 30ft Hareshaw Linn waterfall. For a more challenging walk the Pennine Way path runs past the site entrance.
Bring your fishing rod as just ten minutes’ walk away is the River North Tyne where you can fish for salmon or launch your canoe or bring your golf clubs to play the challenging eighteen hole Bellingham course.
We are awarded 5 Stars by VisitEngland and 5 Pennants by the AA and in 2013 voted the North East Region Winner by readers of both Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazine in their annual Top 100 Sites survey.
