Hostel in Northumberland: Off the grid & remote, self-catering, bunkhouse accommodation for small groups


Chartners Farm Off The Grid, Harwood Forest, Ewesley, Morpeth NE61 4LJ

Hidden away in the heart of Harwood Forest, 20 miles north west of Morpeth, Chartners Farm is well and truly off the grid. It’s a five mile drive along forest tracks from the nearest road. All electricity is generated by wind turbines and solar panels, while a huge log burner heats the radiators and keeps the whole hostel at a very cosy 20 degrees (even on the coldest of days). The perfect place to escape the rat race, unwind and recharge. With no Wifi you can really switch off for a few days. Nature surrounds you and you can enjoy complete peace and tranquility. Northumberland’s famous dark skies will add to your evening’s entertainment. For mountains bikers it’s directly on the Sandstone Way and has secure bike storage. With 12 beds across 3 rooms, Chartners Farm provides ideal accommodation for groups of family or friends. Bedlinen is provided, please BYO sleeping bag/duvets and towels. Adults and children alike will love the adventure of staying in such a unique place. For larger groups there is also a camping area for an extra 8 small tents. Alternatively you can put up a marque for a party. Sorry no stag and hen parties. There’s a self-catering kitchen and a lovely sitting room/diner. Outside you’ll find a BBQ area with plenty of seating, ideal for watching the wildlife and catching the evening sun. Dogs welcome by arrangement.

Access to the farm is via 5 miles of forest tracks, this route is not suitable for sports cars or vehicles with limited ground clearance! In significant snow and ice conditions the tracks can become inaccessible and bookings may need to cancelled from a safety point of view!

When using older sat nav systems some guests have had difficulties finding the house in the forest in the dark.
