Wooler, a market town in Northumberland is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Cheviots” on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, and with the long distance Pennine Cycle Way and St. Cuthbert’s Way Walk running close by, it’s a real Mecca for walkers and ramblers who travel far and wide to enjoy the amazing scenery. The Cheviots are a range of rolling hills straddling the English-Scottish border; they are perfect for walking fanatics and during the winter season even host The Cheviots Ski Club. And even though ski chalets aren’t exactly the most common form of accommodation on your Northumberland holiday, Wooler offers the next best thing; a wealth of beautiful holiday cottages – catering to your every holiday need.
This beautiful 3-bedroom Northumberland holiday cottage in the Cheviot Hills lies in the stunning Northumberland countryside just outside the village of Akeld near Wooler in the Northumberland National Park. The cottage is lovingly decorated and perfect for walking holidays in Northumberland.
Wooler itself is a very active community both sports wise and in terms of hospitality. There are many sports facilities, catering to tennis, football and swimming – plenty of places to tire the kids out during your stay in your Northumberland Holiday Cottage. Whether you admire the incredible countryside from the ground or from the air, it will always take your breath away. Borders Gliding Club provide a service where you can either go gliding with an instructor and fully take in the awesome sights or you can opt to take lessons yourself and learn to fly on your holiday break away.
If you don’t quite fancy the height of flying there are plenty of ways to discover the Cheviots: on foot; by bike or on horseback; get in touch with the local stables and trot your way across this fine stretch of land. If walking isn’t your thing, perhaps a spot of fly fishing on the River Tweed might appeal, a just spend days exploring historical attractions from Iron Age settlements to a restored cornmill. You can also find plenty of tearooms and friendly pubs to make a pit stop half way through your day where tourists are welcomed with open arms. Wooler is small but well worth the journey to this ruggedly beautiful corner of the North East for the amazing countryside and activities that are available to you.
