Glamping, Bunkhouses, Bothies, Lodges...

All conjure up images of 1950's village halls, basic bunks, dubious mattresses & pillows, and making do.  Equally getting together with pals, making your own entertainment, days of walking the hills, cycling new routes, getting back to basics, night time feasts, campfires and jolliment.

Today's opportunities for Glamping, and staying just a couple of steps closer to everyday comforts appeals to many who still seek the adventure of roughing it mixed with some home comforts.

Stay Northumbria are pleased to have sourced a collection of properties which meet these modern day criteria.  Unlike many bunkhouse experiences, those that we offer provide exclusive use of the buildings, provide bedding (although you may have to make your own beds) and if they don't provide towels you can hire them. All of which will make it a little easier if you have chosen to book these accommodations as part of a backpacking or cycling break.

Catering facilities are good, and supermarkets will make that all important food and grocery delivery if you pre-arrange it, but if you are lookng for that true getting back to basics experience, shopping at the local butcher's and bakers on the way is probably more like the real deal!

In brief.....

Tarset Tor Bunkhouses offer guests a large bunkhouse sleeping up to 20 plus 3 bothies, all bookable individually, or in a number of combinations to suit various group requirements, community outside space too with sauna, fire pits and woodland bar (bring your own booze).

Fairhaugh is truly back to basics, up a logging track, isolated, with no electricity, so sorry girls no hair straighteners, mobile phones or TV either, but a lovely spot, with a babbling brook, and deer, red squirrels and woodland walks/cycle routes as your neighbours.

Alwinton Lodges are 3 wooden chalets which can be individually booked or booked together, there are also some cottages on the same land if you have some members of your party who like a few more comforts. Situated in the foothills of the Cheviots and on the edge of the Northumberland National Park.

Willow Cottage is may be not your idea of glamping, its been graded by Visit England as a 5 * holiday cottage, but it makes this collection as it is a wooden lodge albeit with all the comforts of home, situated in Lucker where the Shepherd's hut is also located so again is walking distance to a great pub.
