Unpolluted skies and majestic, deserted beaches await in Northumberland. This wild land of atmospheric castles and hidden bays is best experienced up close and personal in one of our snug, stylish shepherd’s huts. You won’t be required to herd any sheep, but you will get that nostalgic camping feeling as you cuddle up in your cosy sanctuary surrounded by nature. Some of our shepherd’s huts in Northumberland are off-grid, so you can completely switch off for a few days. Settle into a slower pace of life, as you cook over the campfire and experience some of the most epic star gazing the UK has to offer.
We’ve personally inspected every one of our huts to make sure they’re a shepherd’s delight. We doze in front of the wood burner, visit the local pub, test the shower and sleep in the beds. Our Northumberland shepherd’s huts are blissfully tranquil places to press pause and experience a deep sense of peace, as you gaze at the sweeping views from your outdoor deck or bubbling hot tub.
There are things you’d pay for if you could, but nature offers them up free of charge, as long as you’re there to look for them. To make sure you are, we’ve rounded up part two of our best budget glamping spaces, so you can go in search of some of the best things.
Who we are We’re a small team based in Bristol who have been finding the most unique glamping places for you to stay in since 2010. We’re very discerning on your behalf and 80% of applications we receive don’t make the cut, so those that do, have something extra special. So far, over 200,000 guests have found a life more wild with us.
Our shepherd's hut holidays in Northumberland A shepherd’s hut holiday transports you back to a simpler time but with all the modern comforts you need to relax. You might wonder why you need so much stuff at home when you’ve got everything you need in one small, cleverly designed space. Perched in some of the most beautiful spots in Northumberland, you’ll find everything from double-width luxury hut with a huge outdoor bath, to a hut with a glass roof for stargazing and as well as a collection of homely huts in a wildflower meadow that are ideal for group bookings.
What to do in Northumberland With sweeping forests and gorgeous gardens, there’s plenty to do inland in Northumberland, but no trip would be complete without visiting the spectacular beaches. If you’re bringing the dog they’ll be in stick-fetching, surf-splashing heaven. From sweeping Budle Bay and Bamburgh to epic coastal castles like Dunstanburgh and pretty fishing villages – it boasts some of the finest scenery in Europe. If you’re coming with an aspiring wizard, a visit to Alnwick Castle (aka Hogwarts) is an absolute must.
