When you’re at Chatton Park Bunkhouse, you’re on just the right side of remote.
When you’re at Chatton Park Bunkhouse, you’re up in the Cheviot Hills, equidistant between the Northunberland Coast AONB and the Northumberland National Park, you’re on just the right side of remote. Lindisfarne with all its stark glory and wildlife is just there and the market town of Alnwick (home of arguably Britain’s best bookshop) is on the postal address. When we stayed there, the children were enchanted by the working farm machinery and animals and all the birdlife almost close enough to touch. It started life as a smithy before being converted into self-catering accommodation and you can tell by the old forge which is still there in the kitchen. Although the weather was scorching when we stayed, I’m sure it would be welcome on cooler evenings.
We explored the area from by cycling and walking. Taking a long climb up to a beautiful waterfall, whose pool cooled us after our exertions. The whole family was fascinated watching raptors of various species hunting over the moors and farmland.
