Glamping Northumberland: 23 Amazing Places You Need to Stay

by

Planning a glamping break in Northumberland? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Northumberland is home to some amazing glamping sites that I promise you’ll be desperate to stay in.

Even with beautiful surroundings like those in Northumberland, you’ll still find it hard to drag yourself from your quirky accommodation.

So from treehouses and shepherds huts to yurts and safari tents, here are 23 amazing glamping sites in Northumberland that you need to stay at.

1. Sky Den

Price per night: From £180 for 4 people

Location: Kielder Water & Forest Park, Hexham

Why stay here: Made famous by George’s Clarkes Amazing Spaces, the Sky Den is one hell of an amazing space. George’s very own dream treehouse project is easily one of my favourite places to go glamping in Northumberland. And I’m sure that after seeing the photo above, you can see why. Delivering a whole new perspective on the great outdoors, the roof innovatively opens up to provide an unobstructed view of the Northumberland Dark Skies. This might just be the ultimate stargazing spot!

What guests say: “Magical. We were celebrating a star gazing enthusiast’s 60th birthday and the Sky Den was perfect beyond words. She slept in the top part with the roof open all night and was literally in heaven! We loved the quirkiness of the self-assembly stools and fold-down tables and beds. It was an enchanting little house in the woods and I’ve never seen anything like it.” 

2. Woodland Chase Cabins

Price per night: From £162 for 2 people

Location: Felton, Northumberland

Why stay here: Set amidst beautiful farmland in the heart of Northumberland, Woodland Chase offers a luxurious escape from the everyday. The site is home to two cabins, Crofter’s and Saddler’s, and both are as beautiful as each other. Crofter’s is encased in hazelwood picket fencing, making it look like it was taken straight out of the American South. Saddler’s, on the other hand, boasts a wood-fired hot tub and a gorgeous bed that I would just love to melt into. And both benefit from a welcome hamper full of delicious local produce, including everything from farm fresh eggs to gourmet chocolate. Oh and don’t forget the complimentary bottle of Prosecco!

What guests say: “Our cabin at Woodland Chase was amazing! Supplies left out for us were so so tasty… The hot tub was a dream and the log burner made us so warm and toasty on a cold day! Thank you so much for making our little trip away an absolute pleasure!”

3. Woodland Chase Treehouse

Price per night: From £194 for 2 people

Location: Felton, Northumberland

Why stay here: If you thought you loved the cabins, just wait until you lay your eyes on Woodland Chase’s treehouse. Climb the spiral staircase and pass the wood-fired hot tub to reach this magical home away from home. Easily one of the most luxurious glamping holidays in Northumberland, the treehouse houses everything from underfloor heating and a Bose speaker to electric Velux blinds and The White Company toiletries, towels and bathrobes. Despite all this luxury, the treehouse still feels rustic and authentic. Just the way we like it!

What guests say: “There’s nothing about this place I could fault or would change. We arrived just as it was getting dark (something he had planned with Jill) for the maximum wow factor! The lit pathway leads to the most amazing sight a fairy-lit stairway up to the cabin… it was truly magical. On entering the treehouse apart from the obvious cosiness the first thing that hit me was the gorgeous smell from the diffusers, the house was lit with candles, tea lights creating a romantic setting. A beautiful hamper waiting or us with a bottle of prosecco as well as handmade chocs and a bouquet which Jill had sorted on my hubby’s behalf!”

4. Abbeyfield Horse Box

Price per night: From £110 for 4 people

Location: Mitford, Morpeth

Why stay here: If you’re looking for somewhere to go glamping in Northumberland that’s a little quirkier than your ordinary accommodation, then look no further than Abbeyfield Horse Box. Nestled in the ancient Borough Woods of Mitford, the 1964 Bedford TK horsebox has been lovingly restored into the luxury accommodation you see today. Not only is the horsebox quirky – the two hot tubs are too! Converted from wine barrels, with festoon lighting above, a dip in these hot tubs is definitely one to remember.

What guests say: “We couldn’t believe our luck as we were shown along a country path to a beautiful field complete with an absolutely stunning converted horse box for a last-minute glamping off-grid getaway! As the sun went down, we saw bats, an owl in flight, even shooting stars! Magical. If this isn’t fully booked for ever more, we will be back!”

5. The Waiting Room

Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: Langley upon Tyne, Hexham

Why stay here: From one quirky place to another, not many people can say they’ve slept in a Victorian waiting room. But that’s exactly what you can do at The Waiting Room. Closing back in 1950 after seeing trains puff in and out for over 80 years, you’ll be sleeping in a real piece of history here. Aside from some modern mod cons and a lick or two of paint, The Waiting Room still retains its original charm and character. You’ll be sleeping in the old ticket office and the main entrance from the platform is also still intact. For an added bit of luxury, the white rolltop bathtub is a real treat too!

What guests say: “I had an absolutely blissful time at The Waiting Room. Alison and Allan were really welcoming, but never intrusive. The accommodation had everything I could possibly need. It was really thoughtfully equipped and there were even extra special touches like treats on arrival, a supply of tea and coffee and extra candles should I want them.”

6. Hadrian’s Wall Yurt

view-of-hadrians-wall-yurt-in-field-from-above

Price per night: From £95 for 2 people

Location: High Brunton, Wall, Hexham

Why stay here: If you want to get closer to nature, why not consider a stay at Hadrian’s Wall Yurt? Set in a secluded, tranquil and completely private two-acre quarry long since reclaimed by nature, guests have nature right at their fingertips here. And most importantly, they have it all to themselves! At 18ft in diameter, the yurt is spacious and stylishly furnished with a cosy 5KW wood burning stove to keep you warm on even the chilliest of nights. However, my favourite thing about the yurt is the central crown with a clear canopy. This means you can drift off to sleep after a long evening stargazing from the comfort of your bed. Be sure to visit the nearby Hadrian’s Wall when you wake up – it’s one of the best places to visit in Northumberland!

What guests say: “The yurt is a perfect romantic hideaway, nestling in the beautiful Northumbrian landscape. Inside has a luxurious Days of the Raj feel, with Victorian furniture and a very comfortable bed. Close by is the well-constructed and well-appointed kitchen, and shower and loo down the wooden walkway. The campfire provides a place to cook and dream a bit by the flames of the open fire surrounded by trees and birds.” 

7. Westfield House Farm Shepherd’s Huts

campfire-table-and-chairs-outside-eyebright-shepherds-hut-at-westfield-house-farm

Price per night: From £89 for 2 people

Location: Thropton, Rothbury

Why stay here: Shepherds huts with wood-fired hot tubs! Need I say anymore? Dotted around the perimeter of a private field, each of Westfield House Farm‘s huts benefits from gorgeous views of some of Northumberland’s best countryside. However, despite being so close to nature, each shepherds hut is still oh-so-luxurious. With electricity, hot running water, an en-suite bathroom, a well-equipped kitchen and more, they really are tiny homes away from home! Arrive to a tasty welcome hamper with everything you could need to fry up a hearty breakfast. A great way to start your break off on a good foot.

What guests say: “Our hut was very private and secluded, just perfect for us, and beautifully, decorated and furnished. We were amazed at the attention to detail. High-end toiletries, scented candles, beautiful and unique crockery. We were very impressed with our starter hamper of food as well. We were blessed with lovely weather and had great fun each evening making a campfire, toasting marshmallows and drinking wine under the stars.” 

8. Holly Tabernacle at Hesleyside Huts

Price per night: From £135 for 2 people

Location: Bellingham, Hexham

Why stay here: I think Holly Tabernacle may just win the prize for my favourite place to go glamping in Northumberland. A mezzanine sleeping area and a rolltop copper bath? This tabernacle may as well have been handmade just for me! A real break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, the enchanting and romantic chapel on wheels is filled to the brim with little luxuries. From the sumptuous king-size bed to the flushing loo with fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries, you definitely won’t be roughing it here!

What guests say: “We walked over 30km, drank lots of red wine and ate wonderful food that we cooked outdoors on the fire. Our halloumi and sausage skewers were the best! The peace and quiet was a welcome change from our busy lives and I felt so much happier after our stay. It was perfect from start to finish, I was so sad to leave!”

9. Rowan Cabin at Hesleyside Huts

rowan-cabin-at-hesleyside-huts-by-woods-with-smoke-billowing-from-chimney-glamping-northumberland

Price per night: From £145 for 4 people

Location: Bellingham, Hexham

Why stay here: Holly Tabernacle isn’t Hesleyside Huts’ only glamping offering in Northumberland. Next up we have Rowan Cabin, a rustic (yet luxurious) cabin that would not look out of place in the forests of Canada. Handcrafted from reclaimed Oak and accessed via your own private walkway, Rowan is as close to a real-life fairytale as you’re likely to find. If all of that hasn’t already persuaded you to stay here, how does the rest of this sound? A king-sized bed, outdoor bath, spacious verandah, a cosy wood-burning stove, and an en-suite shower room with fluffy towels. Pretty dreamy, huh?

What guests say: “Nothing short of incredible. Beautiful location. Every little detail thought of with every aspect of the stay from a wheelbarrow to transport your luggage up the woodland path to the mood lighting in the hut and additional firewood readily available. A perfect balance of rustic and luxurious. The comfiest bed we’ve ever slept in. Such a quality well-designed build and the outdoor bath was just gorgeous.” 

10. Shepherds Huts at Hesleyside Huts

bracken-shepherds-hut-in-field-at-hesleyside-huts-glamping-northumberland

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Bellingham, Hexham

Why stay here: Thought Hesleyside Huts were done with showing off their amazing range of glamping offerings in Northumberland? Well, you’d be wrong. The 4000-acre site is also home to three charming shepherds huts. Each hut is beautifully made from reclaimed wood, and inside you’ll find everything you did in both the cabin and tabernacle – just packed into a smaller space! With a star-gazing kit awaiting your arrival and marshmallows just waiting to be toasted, get ready to cosy up by the campfire and get back to nature.

What guests say: “The huts more than met our expectations; we really appreciated our host’s attention to detail. Everything inside the hut was perfect, from the sweet little hobbit stove to the wonderfully comfortable bed with feather and down duvet. Opening our windows at sunrise we were treated to stunning views and walking on the grounds was a delight. Anna and William were perfect hosts; there when you needed them but otherwise unobtrusive.” 

11. Huts in the Hills

outdoor-bathtub-on-decking-of-maylies-huts-in-the-hills-glamping-northumberland

Price per night: From £110 for 2 people

Location: Whittingham, Alnwick

Why stay here: I might just leave the bathtub and view above to speak for itself because really, the rest is irrelevant. Huts in the Hills is home to four huts, ranging from Dunmore which sleeps two and Maylies which sleeps five. Each luxurious hut comes complete with an outdoor fire pit for alfresco dining as well as an antique outdoor bath to relax in. Inside, you’ll find everything you’d expect from luxurious self-catering accommodation. And if you want to make your stay extra special, they can deliver breakfast baskets, picnic lunches and evening meals to your hut!

What guests say: “We were truly impressed by this fantastic hut! They’ve thought of everything here from the board games to allow you to purchase food; we had a chicken and leek bake and a cottage pie both of which were delicious. We absolutely lucked out with the night sky and were able to see a full sky of stars both nights which was a huge treat whilst we enjoyed a bubble bath and a bottle of wine outside whilst the children slept.”

12. Langley Glamping Cabins

langley-glamping-cabin-with-decking-by-tree-in-field-glamping-northumberland

Price per night: From £85 for 4 people

Location: Langley, Hexham

Why stay here: People may often think of glamping pods as one of the less interesting types of glamping accommodation. However, these bad boys are something special. Nestled in the Tyne Valley at the edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Langley Dam Glamping Pods are a step above what you’d usually expect. From the sumptuous king-sized cabin beds and smart TV to the spacious en-suites and private decking, you couldn’t ask for much more. For an extra special stay with exceptional views, be sure to stay in one of the four ‘Langley Longboat’ cabins, positioned on the bank of Langley Dam Reservoir.

What guests say: “Our family of 5 had a wonderful weekend in the Blackcleugh cabin. It is really well laid out and equipped with everything you need – the children loved it, especially the bunk bed! The outside play area is ideal for active boys, whilst the BBQ and fire pit meant everyone got involved. Set in such a wonderful location there was something for us all to enjoy.”

13. Alnmouth Huts

Price per night: From £80 for 2 people

Location: Alnmouth, Northumberland

Why stay here: If the view above doesn’t persuade you to stay at Alnmouth Huts, I don’t know what will. Watch the boats, spot the birds and enjoy a bit of time off-grid, while soaking up the sights as the sun sets on the Northumberland coast. Set on the St. Oswald’s Way coastal path, great walks are right on your doorstep. However, if the weather’s not on your side, cosy up by the wood burner while you persuade your other half to cook up a feast!

What guests say: “One of the most stunning and unique locations in Northumberland with a wonderful beach, walking and great views of the Coast to wake up and go to sleep to. The huts are designed to be in harmony with the landscape they are set in and are run by two of the most passionate people you will ever meet.”

14. South Berrington Shepherds Huts

Price per night: From £110 for 4 people

Location: Berrington, Berwick-upon-Tweed 

Why stay here: Cute and cosy, South Berrington Shepherds Huts is another great option for those looking to go glamping in Northumberland. Whether you want to explore the coast or the countryside, these huts are a stone’s throw from both so that you can maximise your time out in nature. The insulated huts are filled with rustic charm and stylish interiors, making your stay is not only comfortable but also enjoyable! Top tip: book a breakfast hamper and/or evening meal recipe box before your arrival to make your stay extra special.

What guests say: “We’ve just stayed in Foxglove for 4 days and had such a fantastic time. The setting is so beautiful with idyllic views of the countryside. The accommodation is so comfortable with everything you could ever need for your stay. Bed linen and towels smell beautiful and fresh and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Cannot recommend highly enough.”

15. Dark Sky Glamping Bell Tents

Price per night: From £135 for 2 people

Location: Matfen, Hexham

Why stay here: One of the most back-to-basics glamping sites in Northumberland, but by no means less special, the romantic Dark Sky Glamping Bell Tents are ideal for those looking to get closer to nature. Born from the hosts’ love of the great outdoors, these tents are a romantic escape for two. Inside each tent, you’ll find a real double bed (no sleeping on the floor here), cosy bed linen, fluffy rugs, twinkly lights, a stove style heater, a small stove and more! Cook a delicious BBQ outside before making s’mores or toasting marshmallows around the fire. How idyllic.

What guests say: “Great hidden gem this. Having been camping it was lovely to have the tent ready for you. It’s in a tranquil place and you can happily relax with the sound of the animals in the background. It’s definitely glamping with immaculate tents and individual toilet and shower facilities. Would definitely recommend to anyone!”

16. Lucker Mill House Shepherds Hut

Location: Lucker, Belford

Why stay here: This lovingly handbuilt shepherds hut is a great little couples getaway. Simplistic and minimalistic, these electric-free huts come complete with a cosy double bed, wood burner stove, bathrobes and towels. Basically everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Add a bit of luxury to your stay by ordering a breakfast basket delivered to the hut or a full English served in the main house. Delicious!

What guests say: “I loved the peace, tranquility and privacy, when you book the hut you get all of the toilet/shower/kitchen facilities to yourself, as there’s only one hut, so it’s pretty amazing! I loved the hosts too, they are fabulous and make you feel very welcome, they strike the right balance of being there when you need them and being left in peace too, that’s an art. Even the breakfast basket delivery is quiet!”

17. Springhill Farm Wigwams

With walks, golf, boat trips, horse riding and cycling right on your doorstep, this is a great family getaway.

What guests say: “The weather was terrible for the whole visit, this did not spoil our enjoyment one bit! The wigwam was amazingly comfortable, warm and practical. The toilets and showers were always remarkably clean despite the mud and wet outside. (I have no idea how they kept everything so clean and tidy!) Spending time reading, watching films and drinking tea in the very, very cosy, warm and clean wigwam was enjoyable.” 

18. Shepherds Retreats

Why stay here: I can’t get enough of Shepherds Retreat‘s shepherds huts! They’re just so beautifully decorated. With every little detail thought of by the owners, they’ve really gone the extra mile to make your stay a special one. Just a stone’s throw from the coast, you can enjoy the views of Beadnell Bay from the comfort of your king-sized bed or your wood-fired hot tub. The views even continue long into the night with a stunning glass ceiling enabling stargazing from the bed! After a long walk along the beach, come back to your wood-burning fire pit and pizza oven to cook up a feast with a glass of wine in hand. And if that’s not enough, make sure you read up on all their amazing sustainability initiatives! Doing good for the planet while glamping in Northumberland? Sign me up.

What guests say: “It’s a different experience to stay in a little hut with the big window over your bed and the dark surroundings. The hut is very comfy with clean, soft sheets and a giant duvet. The Sanderling is private, so you can sit on your steps, on the outside chairs or in the hot tub without anyone overlooking you. The birds are a delight. The hut is only a short walk away from the beach and there are excellent cycle routes all around.”

19. Blossom Plantation Pods

Why stay here: Lakeside location? Tick. Wood-fired hot tub? Tick. Kingsize bed and flat-screen TV? Tick and tick. A real step up from your usual glamping pods, Blossom Plantation Pods take luxury to a whole new level. Not least because they’re a hell of a lot more spacious than what you’ll usually find! Slip into your bathrobes and get ready to relax because that’s all that matters here. After a long dip in the tub watching the sunset from your deck, cosy up by the fire with your favourite comfort film of choice on.

What guests say: “Fabulous place! Peace and quiet and our own private hot tub! Well equipped accommodation and easy to find (straight off the A1) but still secluded and off the beaten track. Will hopefully return again when we’re up in that part of the country.”

20. Two Shakes Shepherds Hut

Price per night: From £100 for 2 people

Location: Budle Bay, Northumberland

Why stay here: Yet another beautiful shepherds hut! Handbuilt to traditional methods, Two Shakes is a cosy little getaway for couples. Inside the hut, you’ll find a gorgeous king-sized bedroom, shower room, galley kitchen and lounge area with log burning stove, TV and Wi-Fi. However, not only is the hut filled to the brim with modern mod-cons but it also looks the part while it’s at it. With a calming coastal toned Farrow and Ball paint palette, the hut is the ultimate switch-off from modern life. Arrive to wine and treats including a local breakfast pack of bread, butter, jam, eggs and more, and get ready to disconnect from the rat race.

What guests say: “We loved Two Shakes! The rain didn’t let up upon our arrival but this didn’t dampen our spirits; we got the log burner on and cracked open the bubbly (which was a lovely touch). The secluded location really made it feel peaceful and served as the perfect setting for a Halloween film night! Can’t wait to come back again. The cleanliness and quality of the amenities were exceptional.”

21. Swarland Old Hall Glamping Pods

Price per night: From £60 for 2 people

Location: Swarland, Morpeth

Why stay here: Sitting in the woodlands of Swarland Old Hall, a Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse, are these amazing glamping pods. Surprisingly modern inside, these certainly aren’t any old pods. Inside, you’ll find a cosy double bed, en-suite shower facilities, a TV and a kitchenette with a dining area. However, you won’t want to be spending your time inside with surroundings like these! With your own patio with a fire pit, BBQ and outdoor seating, plus pedigree cattle and sheep roaming in the surrounding fields, this really is the rural idyll.

What guests say: “It might be small but it packs in everything you need for a good holiday for two. A welcoming basket of goodies was a nice touch, together with a pint of milk in the fridge. The pod has one of the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in. Not only was it comfortable but the bedding was very high quality. The two pods on site sit in a field below the two main lodges and enjoy views of the adjacent Old Hall and the open fields and farm. From the pod entrance, it is possible to see the coast and the sea out to the east.”

22. Feather Down Safari Tents

safari-tent-and-decking-in-field-at-feather-down-northumberland-farm-on-rainy-day

Location: Northumberland Farm, Seahouses

Why stay here: Ever fancied going on a safari but just can’t afford the price tag? Join the club! Luckily, Feather Down Safari Tents supply the next best thing, a little closer to home. Less than a mile from the beach, this is one of the best glamping holidays in Northumberland for beach bums and water babies. The hosts also go above and beyond to make your stay a special one, with delicious breakfast hampers, fruit boxes and more, to feed the whole group! Sleeping six people across a double bed, bunk bed and unique cupboard bed, this is a great getaway for families or groups of friends.

What guests say: “Our family of four loved this glamping trip. It looks just as good in real life as the photos on the website. The hosts were lovely and welcoming and it’s a superb location to explore the Northumberland coastline. We would highly recommend the pizza night and farm tour which were both excellent. There was a fire pit and outside BBQ and large and small cooking stoves plus a log burner inside. Great glamping site.”

23. Alnwick Lodge Wagons

Price per night: From £45 for 2 people

Location: Alnwick, Northumberland

Why stay here: Last but by no means least we have Alnwick Lodge Wagons. With a quirky selection of four rustic glamping offerings, there’s a wagon to suit every taste. Each comes complete with an outdoor table and chairs to soak up those stunning Northumberland sunsets and dine al fresco. The wagons may be slightly more back-to-basics than some of the other Northumberland glamping holidays but what they lack in luxury, they make up for in character. Top tip: order a bacon butty to be delivered to your wagon in the morning. A great start to the day!
