Space & Setting.

On a remote family farm in Northumberland National Park, these stylish huts are perfect for families who like to roam free. The surroundings are stunning – endless fields, then moorland, thick forest and ruined castles, plus vast beaches over on the coast – and there’s no one to disturb except the Aberdeen Angus cows and fluffy Valais Blacknose sheep.

Handcrafted from reclaimed oak, the huts are beautifully decked out, with solar-powered showers, cosy woodburners and quirky touches like a climbing wall in the kids’ bedroom – plus fabulous stargazing roofs. Wrap up in blankets to watch the sun rise with a hot chocolate, or gather round the firepit for campfire meals and marshmallows. The kids will love the novelty of the cast-iron outdoor bath – and once they’re tucked up in bed it’s all yours, so pour a glass of wine, hop in and marvel at the Milky Way. This is what family holidays are all about.

Getting here: it’s best to drive but you could train to Alnmouth then taxi (12 miles)
