About Bellingham: (Pronounced Bell-ing-jum), the market town (population approx 1200) is sited on a dry fertile river terrace above the junction of the Hareshaw Burn and the North Tyne – an easy walk to the bakers, hardware store, local pubs and many other delights of Bellingham. The village is surrounded by fell and moorland, wonderful walking country and the Pennine Way passes through it.
The name suggests it was the pioneer Anglian settlement of the area and in earlier times, North Tynedale and Redesdale were controlled by the British Brigantes. There are notice boards in the town centre with information on activities which vary throughout the year. Nearby of course we have Kielder Water which is England’s largest man-made lake, Hexham Abbey, The Olde Gaol, Hareshaw Linn walk, voted the 8th most beautiful walk through the UK (Daily Telegraph) and a range of public golf courses, footpaths, bridleways, some of the best fishing in England and byways leading in all directions.
If you’re visiting Northumberland, be sure to stay at Hollyberry Cottage to make the best of your trip.
