Demesnefarm Campsite and Bunk House

Bellingham Bunk House 

We've stayed here!

At the end of February 2012 one of our team stayed here for one night. The owners were extremely helpful providing a very pleasant night's accommodation.

The shower was powerful and hot! Great after a long days walking in Northumbrian. 

The bunk house provides lots of equipment for self catering and there is a Co-op close by for provisions. 

There were no other occupants on the night

We recommend this accommodation and will return good
