Breakfast :)
Breakfast at Chatton Park Bunkhouse near the Cheviots.

On our holiday  we stayed at CHATTON PARK BUNKHOUSE one of the hostels in Northumberland and the Cheviots. It had a very nice atmosphere; the two dorm rooms and the shared kitchen made it  cosy and very friendly. Waking up in a great mood after a comfortable night’s sleep we set out on a walk. It was a nice day and it was great to get some fresh air.

We drove through Ingram and further up into the hills, parked on the side of the road and walked up the road to the Linhope Estate, where we found a footpath. We walked through the Cheviots. The walk was quite a lot longer than I’d expected but it was worth it. It was a really nice day and we had the little country path to ourselves. It was a peaceful and relaxing walk but also fun because I had great banter with my friends.

The walk had a sense of adventure to it,  it wasn’t just on some path, it was a beautiful route through the Cheviot hills.

After walking some way, there was a small, yet pretty waterfall called Linhope Spout.  It had been very warm when we were walking over there and now that we’d got there a blissful shower of rain came to cool us down. It was fun paddling in the water, but also pretty freezing on my toes.

After walking back we were all pretty tired and very hungry so we went to the small town of Wooler where we enjoyed some fish and chips. We also paid a visit to WOOLER YOUTH HOSTEL– it seemed like a nice place to stay and had an excellent phone signal. It’s tucked away behind a few houses and has its own little garden in front of it that makes it seem more private.  Nearby there is a small Co-op where we bought some chocolate, and my Mum bought some Pims, for later.

One thing that really stood out for me about this holiday is that all the surrounding towns had little painted bikes around town. They were very quirky and pretty. I later found out later they were there for the Tour de Britain bike race.   Here is a map of hostels in Northumberland for you to plan a trip to explore this pretty area.
