Camping accommodation is included in the fees (tent provided), arranged with a local campsite (, in the village of Belford, just 5 miles from Bamburgh castle. Transport will be provided each day between the campsite and the excavations. The campsite has showers and washrooms, self catering facilities and telephones. 

Storage space will be available at the campsite, so if you have lots of baggage we should be able to store it for you. If you are coming from overseas we take delivery of one you order online. Bluebell Farm Camping and Caravan Park is situated in the historic village of Belford, easily accessible by car or bus from the main A1 trunk road between Newcastle and Edinburgh. Buses run regularly from the mainline train station at Berwick upon Tweed about 15 miles to the north.

There are numerous amenities within the village including a variety of take-aways and restaurants, pubs, supermarket just across the road, post office, launderette, newsagents.

Although we do not provide food, there are modest cooking facilities available and a BBQ which is available daily for your use. In addition, we will host a weekly BBQ event - this usually happens at the beginning of the week. A daily prepared packed lunch is available from the campsite for a modest cost if you don't want to make your own.

Alternatively, there is plenty of accommodation in the local area, from bed and breakfast's to hotels. Information is available on our website, for those interested.
