LAND ROVER SAFARI
Take a chauffeur driven Soft Top Safari in our fabulous 4 x 4 Classic Series 3 Land Rover. Be driven in (bumpy) luxury across the Northumberland National Park.
Explore Hadrian’s Wall, Kielder Forest off road or hand picked remote villages in a soft top Land Rover (takes up to 5 passengers). Check out Sycamore Gap on the Roman Wall, and the wild Whin Sill landscape all around. Explore the wild fells and grasslands of the Northumberland National Park. Look for hay meadows, streams and waterfalls, wild woods and moors, pretty Coquet valley or the stark Cheviots. We’ll drive you to sites of ancient, bloodied battlegrounds, with a wild wind tangling your hair.
For a really special day, we can deck out our soft tops for a Big Birthday or special theme. Just let us know!
The sky above this area of Northumberland near Hadrian's Wall is simply stunning. A sky bursting with twinkling lights and, if you're very lucky, a breathtaking swathe of green across the northern horizon.
Our Glampsite is snuggled below some of the darkest skies in Europe . If you are interested in exploring the Northern Lights and the Milky Way more closely, look out for our extra special star gazing events, where expert astronomers will talk you right round the galaxy with your feet on Northumbrian soil.
Northumberland is rich in cycle routes. As you cycle, you will see the landmarks of the history of this fiercely defensive border county – pele towers, Hadrian’s Wall, and the rugged fields where the Border Reivers fought their bloody battles. This is a superb region for cyclists, whether for a stop along one of these routes, or for days out, cycling England’s Last Wilderness.
The Tyne Valley is known for superb fishing all year round, riverside walks, and for wild salmon and sea trout fighting their way up the Tyne - a beautiful sight in the autumn. There are three beautiful coarse fishing lakes at Whittle Dene, by the Military Road, all well maintained and set in rolling Northumbrian countryside. Roadside banks on the Northern and Lower lakes are easily accessible, while the grassy banks are easy to cross with a trolley if you want to explore further afield. The far banks of the top two lakes can often provide bigger fish. If you prefer peace and quiet, the 10-15 minute walk to the Great Southern lake is worth seeking out too, for its stunning scenery and the potential for enjoying superb roach fishing!
Whether you need a slow, quiet and sedate break, or an exciting stay full of full-throttle activities, we can help you plan your perfect break.
