Join us for a great package holiday based from our Bellingham site. This very popular package includes:
4 nights camping with electric on a hardstanding or grass pitch (11-15 June);
Wine reception (eve, 11 June);
Return journey to Seahouses (12 June), stopping at Barter Books in Alnwick for free tea/coffee;
Boat trip from Seahouses to the Farne Islands and wildlife cruise, landing on Inner Farne.
Following day (13th June): Choice of Guided walks around Bellingham in the beautiful North Tyne Valley.
The day out to Seahouses and the Farne Islands is the whole day, leaving at approx. 8.30am, arriving back on site approx. 6.30pm. We offer a lot in the package, including a break in the journey to Seahouses for free tea/coffee at Barter Books in Alnwick, one of the largest 2nd hand bookshops in Europe, of ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ fame. You are welcome to join a short guided tour of the history of the railway station building in which the shop is housed. The highlight of the trip is, of course, the wildlife cruise of the Farne Islands, with a landing on Inner Farne. Stars of the show are the nesting puffins, but of course there is a huge variety (and number!) of other seabirds, plus grey seals and, possibly, dolphins, whales. Our boat journey is tailor arranged for good tides (seals on rocks) and for a time of day when most other boats are returning from Inner Farne so you get a quieter spell on the island and, therefore, a closer walk amongst the birds.
Take a look at our Pre-arrival guide on the Bellingham CCC Site web page, for ideas for activities on your final day (10th May). If you like walking, the Hareshaw Linn is hard to beat.
PACKAGE PRICE: From ~£78 per adult, based on 2 sharing a pitch. Small reduction for Concessions.
