OverviewA warm Northumbrian welcome awaits you at the Joiners Shop Bunkhouse. Nestled in the peaceful wooded hamlet of Preston between the villages of Ellingham and Chathill, it is just 5 miles from the stunning Northumberland AONB coastline and 7 miles from the historic market town of Alnwick with its castle made famous by the Harry Potter films. The charming 19th century building offers the haven you need to refuel, relax, entertain or just chill out. Inside, you’ll find there’s room for plenty – with 18 pine bunk beds, arranged in heated sections of twos, threes and a five. But long before you settle down for a good night’s sleep, you’ll want to take full advantage of the hot showers, fully equipped kitchen and spacious dining area. And not least, the chance to lounge in front of a roaring fire. Whatever your personal preferences, things can be tailored to suit your needs. Catering can be arranged for groups of all sizes and your host, Kirsten, can recommend ample activities in the local area. Just 300m from NCN Route 1 it's a favourite base for cylists. Also at mile 33 of the Coasts and Castles cycle route, 1/3 of the way. But whatever your passion, be it photography, wildlife, walking, climbing, golf, mountain biking, birdwatching, angling, watersports, culture, history or just relaxing, you’ll find The Joiners Shop Bunkhouse the ideal place to stay.
