Welcome To Blue Bell Farm
Situated in the heart of North Northumberland, just off the main A1 road, about 15 miles north of Alnwick, 15 miles south of Berwick upon Tweed, and just 5 miles from the spectacular beaches at Bamburgh, Bluebell Farm offers a range of self catering holiday options: the Caravan Park has bases for 40 static caravans and 20 seasonal touring caravans, with a small area for tents and occasional touring units. We also have a Bunkbarn, offering hostel style accommodation, the Ark, and 4 self catering cottages, giving a wide range of possibilities for British holidays.
Bluebell Farm enjoys a quiet central location in the Village of Belford, in North Northumberland. The A1 by-passes the village approximately one mile to the east, ensuring undisturbed peace combined with ready access to the main road linking Newcastle and Edinburgh. Midway between the historic towns of Alnwick to the south, and Berwick-upon-Tweed to the north, Belford was a stopping-off point in the days of the London to Edinburgh Mail Coaches. The Blue Bell Hotel, an old coaching inn, still overlooks the Market Square in the centre of this charming village, with shops and pubs all within easy walking distance, and with good transport links to places further afield - the main east coast railway runs through Berwick, and there are airports at Newcastle and Edinburgh, and a ferry service out of Newcastle to the continent. We are conveniently situated for some good walking and cycling routes (St. Cuthbert's Way, the Coast and Castles route), providing a warm welcome to those who are passing through as well as those who wish to stay a little longer. We are only five miles from Bamburgh with its wonderful beaches, 8 miles from the holy island of Lindisfarne, and 8 miles from Wooler, the gateway to the Cheviots and the Northumberland National Park. The historic Scottish Borders are just a few miles away, and there is a wealth of outdoor activities on offer in the area, including golf, riding, canoeing, cycling, diving and walking. The region is rich in history and there are many significant National Trust and English Heritage sites to visit, as well as a number of fine country houses and castles still in private ownership. Castles at Alnwick, Bamburgh and Chillingham have provided the backdrop to many films, Manderston hosted the Edwardian Country House series on Channel 4, and Hadrian's Wall managed a cameo part in "Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves". Click on "Links" to see just some of the attractions easily accessible from Belford, including the much acclaimed Dark Skies Experience at Kielder, the Farne Island boat tours operated from Seahouses, and much more.
Belford is a thriving community and there are a number of events which have taken place here in the past or which have become regular attractions - fireworks at New Year, Belford Village Show, a permanent local history exhibition, etc. Details of events are displayed on the Belford Village webpage, www.belfordvillage.co.uk as well as links to local facilities and attractions.
