There’s something special about walking in winter, isn’t there? A brisk walk outdoors leaves you feeling healthy and refreshed. When it’s frosty outside and the air is clear, views can be spectacular too. If you’re staying at one of our lovely lodges or log cabins in Felmoor Park or Bockenfield Country Park between now and February, then the opportunities for some wonderful winter walks are countless, with easy access to miles of walks in woodland, on hills and along the coast.

…gunpowder, treason and plot! For over 400 years, we have been lighting bonfires on this night to mark the ‘Gunpowder Plot’. Did you know that the tradition of Bonfire Night began the same year as Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators were captured? Fireworks will be lighting up the skies across Northumberland this weekend at a host of organised displays. This year, 5th November falls on a Monday, so most public events are on Sat 3rd or Sun 4th. Here are a few of the most spectacular ones for you to visit. [ 02/11/18 ]

Here in Northumberland, it feels like half term has been going on for the best part of a month! The steady stream of families visiting the county from other regions underlines the fact that in some parts of Scotland, half term began in mid-October; in many parts of England, it was on the 22nd; but in Northumberland, it starts on the 29th. Luckily for our schoolchildren, this late holiday also coincides with Halloween. [ 25/10/18 ]

How does a holiday on two wheels appeal? When you book your next lodge, log cabin or cottage break, why not consider spending some time on two wheels, rather than four? If you and the family don’t have your own bikes, you can easily hire them from a number of places in Northumberland and get to see the county from a whole new perspective. To make life even easier, ask about hiring some of the latest electric bikes – e-bikes, for short! [ 18/10/18 ]
