Charming grounds and easy access to the attractions of Northumberland
Another bunkhouse in a great location from the National Trust. The bunkhouse in the complex of estate buildings in the grounds of Wallington, an epic country house near Morpeth in Northumberland. If you stay at the Wallington Bunkhouse, National Trust have generously allowed free access to Wallington’s mansion House, it’s shops and cafe, woodland walks and the enchanting walled garden. If my kids were a bit younger they would have been all over the wild play in the West Wood and its three play areas. Nowadays they’d have the patience and interest for the family-friendly wildlife hide looking out for red squirrels. To say nothing of the cycle trail around the estate.
There’s the whole of the landscaped grounds to explore but also, further afield, you could explore the Cheviots and Hadrian’s Wall.
The bunkhouse is has accommodation in two 8 bed dorms plus two 2 bedded rooms which are great for group leaders. Upsatirs is the kitchen and dining area with loads of space for a convivial evening recuperating from the day’s exertions.
