Stay at Hagg’s Bank for a two day adventure with a homely stopover in between.
Hagg’s Bank Bunkhouse is a bit of a gem. Set in the stunning North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, often described as England’s last wilderness, this location is ideal for anyone who loves the great outdoors – walkers, cyclists and mountain bikers . It sleeps up to 24 in 3 bunkrooms of 4/5, 9 and 10 and includes a relaxing lounge, self-catering kitchen, modern shower room and large conservatory for chilling out in! Breakfast and evening meals can be provided for larger groups as well if you pre-book.
All this makes it the perfect stop over point if you’re walking the enticingly named Isaac’s Tea Trail. Of course, Britain is scattered with long distance paths and trails named after teh landscape (Pennine Way or Limestone Way) or historical persons (St. Cuthbert’s Way, Offa’s Dyke Way), but this one catches the eye. Isaac’s Tea trail follows 36 miles of an itinerant tea seller’s route across the North Pennines.
Starting at Allendale along teh East Allen Valley, across the moors to Nenthead. From there you can drop beside the river as it cascades to Alston. Just along this stretch is where you’ll find Hagg’s Bank. A great place with lovely views to break your walk. Next day, after a hearty breakfast, continue through Alston where you can join the Pennine Way for a bit before climbing to the moors again and circling round back to Allendale. Perfect! A two day adventure with a homely stopover in between.
