Autumn & Winter Cottage Breaks In Northumberland

Autumn & Winter breaks at Beacon Hill Farm are incredibly popular and theres plenty to do whether you are looking to relax and unwind or whether you enjoy getting wrapped up and being out and about on those cold, crisp days. If it's the latter, then of course you can look forward to returning to your warm and cosy luxury cottage that has everything you could possibly need.

Here is a short guide to just some of the things you could look forward to if you are staying with us during the Autumn & Winter...

Spa Days


Our luxury Spa facilities are open all year round and are just a short walk from the holiday cottages. For many of our guests this forms their daily routine, making full use of the Gym, Steam Room, Sauna, Jacuzzi and the Laconium Therapy Room which has four heated beds and offers wonderful views to the south. Not to mention the heated pool and the option to book a treatment in our Beauty Salon.

Winter Walks


MegOn the farm itself you can enjoy walks through our very own 20 acre wood where there is even a Harry Potter trail for the young ones. You can also enjoy a walk around Meg's Lake which really is a beautiful location and is alive with colour in Autumn.

To the east you can quickly access the stunning Northumberland coast and there are endless beaches along which to enjoy a bracing walk and to the west you will find Kielder Water & Forest Park where you can expect to encounter lots of local wildlife.

Dark Skies


Observatory We are situated right on the edge of Northumberland International Dark Sky Park so there is no better place to enjoy the wonders of the night skies. We now have our very own observatory here on the farm and guests can freely use this tremendous facility. If adults or children want to learn more about our Universe then you can even book a visit to Kileder Observatory, a fantastic visitor attraction under the finest dark skies in England.

The Alnwick Garden


A firm favourite with our guests, there's something for everyone at The Alnwick Garden and there are plenty of fun and interesting events taking place during the autumn and winter months. The Dark Garden is an annual Halloween event that will appeal to all ages but is especially exciting for children. Other events include a spectacular light installation called Sparkle, The Grand Lantern Parade from the garden and through the town as well as the Christmas market and skating rink. All events and dates can be found at The Alnwick Garden website.

There are so many more things to see and do from this wonderful location and of course some families simply like to get away and spend some time together at Christmas. Whatever your reason, you'll find everything you need and more at Beacon Hill Farm for a Brrrr...illiant stay!
