A wonderful month to be surrounded by mother nature in the North Pennines
With the valleys becoming a beautiful verdant green and the moors blossoming, the birds raising their young what is not to like about the North Pennines at this time of year? We may well be in the heart of England’s last wilderness, but we are conveniently located to explore this amazing area that teems in wildlife and has heritage sites around every corner. The latter starts with the accommodation being a Scheduled Ancient Monument that played its part in the Industrial Revolution to Hadrian’s Wall and other Roman sites being close by.
With wide-open spaces on the moors where you can walk without seeing anybody for hours, and have amazing views across northern England, to the small valleys and villages that have craft shops, art galleries and museums, not forgetting cafes for coffee and cake! The sunsets can be quite spectacular at this time of year, so an evening spent atop the moors watching the sun go down over southern Scotland. Or just sitting by the fire pit listening to the river bubbling over the rocks.
Carrshield in the West Allen Valley in the south-western corner of Northumberland is truly a place to escape the world and recharge yourself.Find out more about Carrshield Camping Barn
