By Wyndham Vacation Rentals


Often referred to as the gateway to Kielder Water and Forest Park, the town of Bellingham is a perfect self catering cottage base for both rural, relaxing breaks in the heart of the Northumberland countryside and for those looking for plenty of outdoor activities for all ages.

Bellingham itself is a small but thriving town, which always offers a warm welcome to visitors. Its location is ideal for exploring not only the Northumberland National Park, but also Kielder Water and Forest Park. Not surprisingly, both of these destinations are hugely popular with both walkers and cyclists. Keilder Water and Forest Park has a number of purpose-built trails that wind their way through secluded forests and it also contains the largest man-made lake in northern Europe. Lovers of wildlife are spoilt for choice here, with red squirrels, roe deer, otters and badgers all to be found within the confines of the park.

Just to the south is the world renowned Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, located a short drive from Bellingham; this most famous of Roman structures runs through some truly stunning countryside. In addition to the surviving stretches of Hadrian’s Wall, other Roman treasures can be found nearby, including forts and temples. History lovers are also well-catered for back in Bellingham itself with the fascinating Bellingham Heritage Centre, which takes a look at the history of the North Tyne Valley area, the violent period of the Border Reivers and the old Border Counties Railway which ceased operating the 1950s.

To experience both the ancient history and heritage of the region, while surrounded by some of the finest scenery in the country, take a look at holiday cottages in Bellingham.

  • Hawthorn House


    Ref: UK3039
    Set in the heart of the town of Bellingham, Hawthorn House is a deceptively spacious, end-terraced holiday home that’s well-furnished throughout to provide comfortable and homely accommodation. Known as the gateway town to Kielder Water and Forest Park, Bellingham is home to a number of friendly pubs, cafés and small shops. It is on the border of the Northumberland National Park, and the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall is just a few miles away. There’s the fantastic local 2½-mile Hareshaw Linn Walk to try nearby, which winds its way through the countryside and ends at a pretty 30ft waterfall. Golf enthusiasts won’t be disappointed with an excellent 18 hole golf course nearby, and history buffs can explore the Bellingham Heritage Centre. There are also remains of the Border Counties Railway to the North West, which provide an insight into the violent past of 16th-century border life. Boasting a pretty tiered garden overlooking the Hareshaw Burn, Hawthorn House makes an ideal base for exploring the whole of this magnificent and unspoilt county. Day trips to Alnwick Castle and Gardens, 35 miles away, and the magnificent Heritage Coast are not to be missed. You can also book in advance to visit the Kielder Observatory on a dark night, and witness the darkest sky close up. Hawthorn House caters for all manner of holidaymakers, and the walking distance to the local pubs will delight those wishing to leave the car behind and stroll along for evening meals and drinks.
