Summer holiday family fun and adventures

Something different is waiting for you to discover in the valleys and moors of the North Pennines and south Northumberland. Walks, cycle rides, nature, and history, all to be found.

You and your family will be able to get close to nature and experience the many delights of England’s last wilderness, the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and UNESCO Geo Park.
Our location in the West Allen Valley, just south of the small village of Carrshield, has the river running close to the building and moors rising on either side, making it an idyllic setting. The accommodation is a converted Mine Shop used during the lead mining days when the area’s population was much higher than today. It allows you to have all the fun of camping, without the worry and hassle of tents.
There are walks from the door that let you explore the valleys, rivers and moors that make this part of Northumberland such a special place. The long-distance Isaac Tea Trail passes close to the village, so if you like a challenge, why not use Carrshield as your base?
Alternatively, you could cycle the quiet country lanes that pass between the valleys giving fantastic views over the rest of the county and southern Scotland. There is also off-roading with Bridleways that pass the door and take you over the moors, another wonderful way of seeing the area.
At the end of your adventure, relax by the river, cook on an open fire or barbeque, and then sit back and watch the stars come out.
