 Lovely site, on a working farm in the village of Bellingham. The owners are friendly and helpful and explained all the systems and precautions in place since the site has re opened after lockdown.

Toilets were clean and there was plenty of cleaning materials and hand sanitizer.

The site is basic and no frills but there was plenty room for kids to run around and of course there was the sheep to watch instead of playgrounds.

The camping fields arenít flat but it wasn't too bad and the sheep did as they were told and didnít make a noise after 10 oíclock which I was dubious about when we got there as they were right beside the tent.

The site attracted a mix - loads of cyclists in small individual tents to families. We had decided not to cook while away for the weekend and we were impressed by the variety of places to eat out within walking distance.

It was lovely to be able to walk to the co-op and pubs. Had a lovely meal at The Cheviot Pub, breakfast at The Rocky Road Cafe and a lovely tasty Chinese Takeaway to eat back at the tent.

We will definitely be back

 Great little site. Farmer friendly.

No hardstanding but weather was dry when we were there.

Only one shower for women but did not see a queue during the day

 I enjoyed the basic uncluttered accommodation of the site and the openness of the area.

This was my second stay at Demesne Campsite and I hope to return in the future.

Only one dislike the cobbles leading to the shower block, not good for your feet and legs after a long days walk!

 We stayed here just after the site had reopened following lockdown.

The site had reduced the number of pitches by half so there was plenty of room.

The showers and toilets were being deep cleaned each day with smaller cleanings during the day. We had no problems with queueing and everyone was following the clearly defined rules for social distancing.

The site is fairly flat, and is indeed in the center of the town (you wouldn't know as it's a tranquil spot)

 This was our first outing in our trailer tent. Pulled off the road and saw a sign to check in to a house opposite.

But before we could do that, the site owner appeared to show us round and collect our money for the stay. Site was quiet at the time and we had a nice choice of pitches.

Everything we needed was there and it was a short walk into the town that had shops and pubs. Toilet area a bit rustic but was adequate until the Friday night.

On Friday lots of other campers arrived and that made the toilet and shower facilities a little over used.

However, very enjoyable stay.

 A very informal and relaxed site on a working farm on the edge of the village. Location is not signposted and it's not immediately obvious.

Entrance is through a gate and then a tight turn between farm buildings and into either the tent or caravan field. Reception is at the farmhouse opposite the entrance.

The village is quite pleasant with three pubs and various small shops.

I'd recommend 'The Cheviot' for both food and beer. They also provide a carry-out service. I would also suggest a visit to the local Heritage centre museum, a short walk from the site.

On a cautionary note, many of the minor roads round Bellingham are in a terrible state. Little more than a series of potholes held together with tarmac.

 Good positioned site with very friendly owners on a working sheep farm. The toilet blocks are good clean with free hot showers, also here you can find handy take away information about the surrounding area. Two fields one for vans with ehu and one for tents, both have lovely views.

Bellingham is a busy little village, it offers a garage, three pubs, a co-op which is open late, a bank, a post office, a Chinese take-away, a quality butchers, a bakers, and a fruit and veg shop, a gift shop etc.

For those who like to walk there are lovely walks around Bellingham, along the river bank dotted with picnic tables, or across the six clearly marked bridges to see the waterfall.

All in all a great little site with ehu for £20pn can't wait to visit again soon.

Reviewer: Strumpo 13 reviews from this member

 Well, just returned from nearly 2 weeks at this site, what a pleasure!

Extremely well kept, well positioned site, with helpful friendly owners, well laid out on a working farm.

The facilities were largely fine, although the toilet blocks did get busy over the weekend we were there, as the site had a lot of campers, and although I never had to wait to use anything, I timed my use of the block according to the time of day which made it easier.

The site was busy all the while we were there, we spoke to quite a few who visit this site on a regular basis, it's easy to understand why.

Bellingham is a busy little village, it offers a garage, three pubs of which we would highly recommend the 'Cheviot', a co-op which is open late, a bank, a post office, a chinese take-away, a quality butchers, a bakers, and a fruit and veg. Shop, bike hire, a gift shop etc. And don't miss the Heritage centre just up from the site, interesting and informative, with a great little coffee shop, (old train carriages) on site.

A notice reminding dog owners to clear up after their pets would be a bonus, one dog owner allowed it's animal to foul right next to our water supply tank outside the caravan, and clearly did not think it was their problem. Not nice.

The only negative comment I would add, and this is nothing to do with the site itself, is that access to Bellingham is via 'B roads' only, and whereas the roads are not in bad condition, they are very up and down, lots of sharp bends, and generally quite narrow, something to be well aware of if towing a large-ish caravan.

Would we visit this site again? Most definitely, probably sooner rather than later, it's a smashing site, a great base for touring round a whole load of interesting places to visit, and don't miss the sunday market in Newcastle under the Tyne Bridge, it's on until 4 in the afternoon.

£20 per night including EHU, can't fault it.
