  • A popular, friendly family-run site, set in National Park

Bellingham - Gateway to the Northumberland National Park

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? It only takes 20 minutes to get there. Have a bite to eat there before walking to the beautiful 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. You can launch a canoe there or bring your golf clubs to play the challenging eighteen hole Bellingham course.

Local attractions

Lose yourself by bike or foot in the vastness of Kielder Water and Forest Park. Take the Osprey ferry across the water; look out for the nesting ospreys. Why not run the shoreline as part of Britain’s Most Beautiful Marathon usually held in October? March as the Romans did on Hadrian's Wall and visit some of the best preserved Roman Forts in Britain at Housesteads, Vindolanda and Chesters. View the cosmos through the telescopes at the observatory or simply sit under England's darkest skies. There are many National Trust and English Heritage properties, e.g. Wallington, Cragside, Belsay and further afield is Alnwick with its famous Castle and Gardens. It's only a short drive or bus ride to Hexham with its market, abbey and the oldest gaol in England, a little further takes you to Newcastle and Gateshead, home of the Angel of the North.

For those who don't want to drive, note that we run at least three 4-night 'package' stays a year, where we take you to top spots in Northumberland (Gardens Tour in May, Farne Islands Wildlife Tour in mid-June, and a History tour in late June). Phone the site to find out more!
