May 7th 2021

Wooler Youth Hostel and Shepherds Huts is surrounded by tranquil locations to walk, swim and explore both the Northumberland National Park and the stunning North East Coastline.

OK, we have many busy destinations on our doorstep, like the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, Bamburgh Castle, Boat trips to the Farne Islands and Alnwick Gardens, but we have SO many other locations that you can easily wander all day and not see a sole.

Whether you want to bag a couple of the Cheviot Hills and then finish the day with a dip in a waterfall pool , or find a smugglers cave on the moors, or maybe even explore one of the Bronze Age Cairns or Hill Forts, Northumberland has it all.

We can definitely give you advice on how to find many of these superb places so you can make the most of your stay with us.

So give the crowds a miss for day or two and see what the alternative side of Northumberland has to offer and book to stay with us in 2021.
