Even if you were to just step outside the bunkhouse, you’d find a woodland conservation area surrounding you, with footpaths taking you through habitat that’s rich in wildlife; from red squirrels and foxes to buzzards and badgers.
Venture a few hundred yards more, and you’ll discover Preston Tower, a 14th century “Pele”, originally built to provide protection from the area’s notorious Border Reivers.
But perhaps the best thing about the immediate area is its accessibility to the rest of the region.
It’s only 7 miles from Alnwick, the seat of the Duke of Northumberland and home to a stunning medieval castle and beautiful Alnwick Gardens.
It’s just 5 miles from the beautiful Northumberland Coast, where unspoiled beaches like Beadnell Bay provide some of the best diving, surfing, windsurfing and kite surfing in Britain.
And it’s a mere 10 miles from the stone-built town of Wooler – the natural gateway to the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland National Park.
For the golfer, there are several enjoyable and challenging courses close by, suitable for novices and experts alike.
Put simply, whether you’re into photography, cycling, wildlife, walking, climbing, golf, mountain biking, birdwatching, angling, watersports, culture, history or just relaxing, you’ll find The Joiners Shop Bunkhouse the ideal place to stay.
