General

  • Luxury country park with 18-hole golf course and driving range
  • With 20 minutes' drive of Alnwick Castle and the Northumbria coast
  • Bar, restaurant and coffee lounge; nature walks and free bike hire

Now here’s a nifty way to explore Northumberland… Pick one of the fine and family-sized lodgings at Percy Wood Country Park and prepare for top times, on site and in the surrounding countryside.

This immaculately tended park is around 20 minutes from the coast and Northumberland National Park, in an area filled with ancient castles and monasteries, wild islands, moors and hills.

Percy Wood is the kind of place where you can be as busy or as laidback as you like: if you're on a slow tempo, take in the views of the Cheviot Hills whilst contemplating a leisurely stroll to the coffee lounge or a spot of sustenance at the bar and restaurant. If pursuits more energetic appeal, bikes are free to borrow and there are numerous nature trails to be explored on wheels, on foot and with canine companions.

Golfing sorts can tune up their techniques night and day on the floodlit, 11-bay driving range, tee off on the 18-hole course or try their hand at other high energy challenges on the multisports court, while smaller folks with a restless streak can slide, climb and swing around on the adventure playground.

Local attractions

For a cracking country walk and castle combination, Alnwick Castle is 15 minutes’ drive away, with dragon quests and broomstick training for those of magical mindset, tours of the baronial interiors, and a series of walking trails through the surrounding estate. Further fab castles are along the coast at Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh, both half an hour away and with long stretches of wild coast to wander between them.

Island hoppers head to Seahouses (half an hour) and hail boats to the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne: divers flock to the former to explore the shipwrecks, while land rambles deliver seals and puffins in a landscape dotted with ancient ruins. Walking or driving to Lindisfarne is also an option, provided you time the tides right; take walks round the castle and the ruined priory and finish off with warming tipples at the winery.

An exotic collection of residents hangs out at Northumberland Country Zoo (10 minutes), including skunks, chinchillas and Chinese water dragons, while those at Whitehouse Farm Centre (25 minutes) are more of the furry and familiar kind, competing for the kids’ attention with indoor go-karts, adventure playgrounds and tractor rides.

Beamish Open Air Museum tells the story of Northumbria, urban and rural, over the past two centuries and the wildlife filled bogs and heaths of the Whitelee Moor National Nature Reserve could belong to another world; both are an hour away.
