General

  • Remote site set on the edge of Northumberland National Park
  • A short drive to Kielder Water and Forest watersports activities
  • Café bar hosting events including music, wine tasting and quiz nights

Remote, wild, spacious and scenic are all terms rightly fitting The Boe Rigg, in Northumberland National Park a few miles from the market town of Bellingham.

Walking and cycling routes are all around here, along with a huge range of outdoor activities within a short drive including the high ropes, watersports and zipwires of Kielder Water and Forest. Also within driving distance are several famed north of England attractions such as Hadrian's Wall and Alnwick Castle, both under 40 miles, and the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, under 50.

The site's excellent facilities include a café bar open daily to sell produce and handicrafts from local growers and craftspeople; it also hosts a programme of events throughout the year such as workshops, live music, quiz nights and wine tasting.

Among The Boe Rigg's amenities are accessible washrooms with toilets and hot showers, a launderette with washers and dryers and a washing-up area. Free wifi is available in the main building.

Campfires and barbecues are both allowed but must be off the ground.
