Beacon Hill Hideaways
Beacon Hill Hideaways - uniquely unspoilt, award-winning Northumberland country glamping that's full of creature comforts... and a sumptuous spa right on your doorstep.
At Beacon Hill Farm, perfectly nestled between the Cheviot Hills and the Northumberland Heritage Coast, you'll discover two stunning shepherds' huts on the site of an ancient beacon that once experienced, will elevate your idea of a traditional glamping holiday!
You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to scenic views, as the farm's 360 acre estate is steeped in authentic Iron Age history and includes a 40-acre beech wood, a rippling lake and plenty of lush foliage all around.
Whatever direction you happen to be looking in, you're bound to see something magical...even at night, as Beacon Hill is located on the border of Dark Sky Park, the very best place in England to enjoy a spot of truly dazzling stargazing.
The two Hideaways, Bluegrass and Ryegrass (Ryegrass will be open in May 2017), are each perfect for a cosy romantic break for two, and include all the creature comforts you might expect from a plush hotel suite. Privately situated in a tranquil wildflower meadow - the very best site on Beacon Hill! - you'll experience the very best of indoor and outdoor living.
The Hideaways are fully heated, and include electricity and WiFi (with a Bose Bluetooth speaker included if you feel like setting the perfect musical mood!).
The spacious living area includes all you need to simply sit back and relax, and when it's time to dine you'll find everything you need to whip up a romantic feast - perhaps followed by a glass of wine as you snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove. There's also a fire pit and barbecue outside for al-fresco dining under a starry canvas.
When it's time to turn in, you'll find the bedroom is gorgeously comfy with a luxury five-foot bed, perfectly positioned for you to enjoy refreshing beech wood views as you wake. The bathroom is well-equipped with a warming shower and a flushing toilet.
Of course, any plush hotel worth its salt includes a relaxing spa...and Beacon Hill doesn't disappoint, with a beautiful spa just a short walk away from your doorstep - simply put your slippers on and stroll on over through the gardens.
The spa is a treasure trove of luxurious treats waiting to be sampled, including a heated swimming pool along with a black granite-walled steam room, Canadian redwood sauna and a Laconium therapy room with spectacular views across the gardens as you relax into the heated beds - a truly magnificent treat! There's also a beauty salon and plenty of places to enjoy a complimentary tea, coffee or herbal drink.
If you prefer outdoor adventure, Beacon Hill offers a wide selection of fresh-air activities, including tennis, football, riding and fly-fishing.
With so much amazing luxury, bracing activity and invigorating scenery to enjoy at Beacon Hill, you may find it very hard indeed to tear yourselves away. That would be a shame however, because the local area has so much to offer even the most discerning holidaymaker! Why not start with a ramble in the wilds of Northumberland National Park, or the lush Kielder Forest?
The Northumberland coastline is renowned for some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the UK, some of which have been voted among the top 50 in the UK by the National Trust - including Embleton which was considered the very best!
There are many castles, gardens and stately homes in the nearby area to explore. Why not take a day trip to Cragside or Wallington, two spectacular National Trust houses that will make you feel like you're starring in ‘Downton Abbey'?
Foodies will be in heaven too, with the region's regular food festivals and the nearby Northumberland Seafood Centre offering the very finest local produce.
So come and make some lasting memories at Beacon Hill Hideaways - the perfect place for a romantic break full of naturally-inspired luxury.Things to note

"An Exceptional Shepherd's Hut"
An exquisite place to stay, with exceptional design and comfort. Spacious, well laid out and a particularly comfortable double bed with lovely views across the fields. It's hard to imagine that a shepherd's hut could be more attractive - they really have pulled out all the stops here. All the furnishings are contemporary and Alun the owner is most welcoming.
Every detail in Bluegrass was perfect with the wood burner already lit, fresh flowers and wine waiting. The hut's rooms are stylish and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The comfortable raised bed has amazing views across the fields to the coast and deer, pheasant and barn owls kept us company. It's a short walk to the swimming pool and spa. and Very highly recommended - we can't wait to go back.
