Call Adrian Copley on 01670 510394


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 a wind turbine 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). There's a fully equipped self-catering kitchen and a lovely sitting room/diner. It has 12 beds across 3 rooms, equipped with a clean sheet and pillowcase. Please bring sleeping bag/duvets and towels. Outside you'll find a BBQ area with plenty of seating, ideal for watching the wildlife and catching the evening sun

Chartners is perfect place to escape the rat race, unwind and recharge. With no Wifi, no television and an intermittent phone signal, you can really switch off for a few days and make your own entertainment. Nature surrounds you and you can enjoy complete peace and tranquillity. Northumberland's famous dark skies will add to your evening's entertainment.

Chartners Farm provides ideal accommodation for groups of family or friends. Adults and children alike will love the adventure of staying in such a unique place. For mountains bikers it's directly on the Sandstone Way and has bike storage. For larger groups there is also a camping area for small tents.

Sorry no stag and hen parties. Dogs welcome by arrangement.
