Originally a row of five Victorian Houses built in 1871 which were bought up and converted into a hotel.  The name Bellingham is derived from the area where there once was a Bellingham Lodge and cottages.  The area was part of the Haigh Estate and the name originates from Lady Dorothy Bradshaigh (1705 to 1785) who was co-heir of William Bellingham of Cumbria.

The hotel is in the process of being aquired by the NHS (2021)
