Insider guide: Set in 4,000 acres of outstanding natural beauty, whether you’re warming up by the campfire, gazing at the stars or enjoying a woodland walk, this is the perfect base. Hesleyside Huts has shepherd’s huts, cabins, a treehouse and a tower hidden around the Hesleyside Estate, each individually designed and offering a unique glamping experience. From a shepherd’s hut which featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces to a chapel on wheels and a watchtower in the woods, there’s something different for everyone.

Woodland Chase Glamping

In brief: A luxurious adult-only escape with Robson Green’s seal of approval.
Our highlight: The Fieldhouse boasts its own private spa with sauna, outdoor shower and cold dunk bucket.
Insider guide: In the heart of Northumberland, just a stone’s throw from Northumbrian coastlines and heritage sites, there’s so much to see and do if you manage to drag yourself away from your home-from-home here. Individually handcrafted, each space at Woodland Chase comes with a private wood-fired hot tub and firepit. It’s the little touches that matter and Woodland Chase take that seriously – take The Treehouse’s Chesterfield sofa and Bose speaker for example, or Saddler’s Cabin’s handcrafted horseshoe hook to hang your keys. Bringing your pet along? Book your stay in the Crofter’s Cabin.

Northumberland Nook

In brief: A secluded glamping retreat for those seeking both comfort and luxury close to nature.
Our highlight: Their focus on sustainability – their luxurious hut has been designed with reclaimed wood and metal inside and out and they are now working on the next stage of development by planting just over 2,000 trees to help with biodiversity regeneration and improving the local environment for future generations.
Insider guide: Northumberland Nook is a relaxing glamping location where guests can reconnect with the natural world. Hyem (meaning home) is their luxurious hut which was designed and built locally to keep their carbon footprint as low as possible. Take a walk through the farmland, cycle quiet roads, or have a friendly Alpaca encounter (there are seven that call Northumberland Nook home). Northumberland Nook also offer a Hire a Hen service where guests can have their own hen coop outside Hyem with three hens, so you can collect your own eggs at breakfast time, and you’ll love the wood-fired Hikki tub on their roofdeck – at night gaze at the stars. Your four-legged friends are welcome too!
