We stayed at The Shepherds hut in November and were delighted to find how warm and cosy it was with a brilliantly efficient wood burner inside and the brazier outside we were never chilly. Our two children (7 and 4) loved exploring in the woods and collecting wood from dawn until dusk. There is plenty to do in the area - we enjoyed castles, HadrianRead mores Wall and Newcastle city centre and Durham Cathedral in the week we were there as well as visiting several of the superb beaches in the North East. The hostess Sarah should also get a mention as she was brilliantly friendly and helpful. Thanks - we had a great holiday! Hide

The Shepherd's Hut was just perfect for the 5 of us (my husband and me, our 2 boys and dog). Quirky, rustic and beautifully made, the Hut felt like a secret retreat. Just the right amount of space around us to make it feel like we were tucked away, but so close to so many brilliant things to visit. Gibside was lovely, and we stayed until late to eaRead moret the freshly baked pizzas under fairy lights.

We arrived at the hut on the Friday night. My boyfriend had rang ahead to order flowers as a surprise for valentines and the owners were lovely enough to go out and get them for him. Woodburner and tea lights were all lit on arrival and it looked like something from a fairytale with all the fairy lights surrounding. The hut had everything we neRead moreeded. Wood etc supplied. We brought our own coal for a bbq breakfast and there was a one hob stove supplied with kettle for our morning brews. If you are looking for a quiet idyllic spot then this is it. Still super close to all amenities but in its own little spot of heaven. Sooo romantic. We will totally be visiting again. Thank you. Hide

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
