When visitors try to describe their stay at Tarset Tor, stunning is truly an understatement. These gorgeous self contained eco-buildings are well suited to a large family looking to take the sort of break that makes lasting memories.
The calming scenes of Northumberland are well matched with the aesthetically pleasing bothies. Not just the average stone tent bothie mind. With a large open living space and biomass stoves for the colder evenings it’s easy to relax amongst family. The evenings are highlighted by the stars, Northumberland being a designated dark sky area. During the day superb walks to be had right outside your door, allowing you to take in the sights of such a wonderful place. For more info you can contact Rob or Claire or send them an email.
