Mounthooly Bunkhouse, Mount Hooley, College Valley, Wooler, Northumberland, NE71 6TU
Nestled at the head of the stunningly beautiful College Valley in North Northumberland, Mounthooly Bunkhouse is a perfect stop off on both the Pennine and St Cuthbert’s Way walks. College Valley is a private estate run by College Valley Estates Ltd. The Bunkhouse was refurbished in 2008 and sleeps 24 in 2 dorms, a 2-bed room and an en-suite family annex which sleeps 4. Clean bedding is supplied. There is a well-equipped kitchen and living area with log burning stove (logs provided). A BBQ is available outside and dogs are welcome by arrangement. There is limited parking at the bunkhouse. Vehicle permits are usually required to access the private road beyond Hethpool, however these are provided with the booking and will be issued on arrival. The setting is perfect to explore the remote hills which you can discover all day often without meeting another soul. The night here in the valley is dark, the only light comes from the moon and the stars. College Valley is a part of the area designated as Europe’s largest ‘dark sky park’. The valley is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels, deer, otters and a thriving population of feral goats. Throughout all seasons the valley offers wonders to be found, be it our local wildlife, archaeology, plant life, viewpoints, history, or the amazing effect nature has on the land, from waterfalls to sparking icicles. This is the perfect wild get away from it all; once seen never forgottenThis accommodation is featured on our map of Northumberland and here is its own website.
