Wigwam Break

For now please do head over to the UK holidays section of our website by clicking HERE

Northumberland’s a fabulous place to enjoy glamping in the UK with the kids. You can make the most of the great outdoors, and what better place to stay than in your very own Wigwam? Ancient castles, golden sand beaches, rolling hills, rugged moorland and friendly little market towns, together with the novel experience of this great accommodation, you’re guaranteed a fun break!

This is by far one of our favourite locations for glamping in the UK with kids. We will be surrounded by countryside with a sweep of incredible sea views towards the Farne Island. Bamburgh Castle and the Cheviot Hills serve as a breath-taking backdrop to the area. On this fabulous glamping holiday we’ll be staying on a working organic farm close to the superb Northumberland heritage coastline. The farm is located just 1 mile from Seahouses and it’s traditional fishing harbour, and 3 miles from Bamburgh and its magnificent castle and sand dunes. Our accommodation is a short walk from miles of empty beaches that you and the kids will adore. The farm is surrounded by country lanes making the location perfect for cycling and walking. You’ll love exploring the area whilst taking in the stunning scenery and enjoying the fresh air.

A short drive takes us to the spellbinding charm of Lindisfarne Island, Alnwick, noted for its Garden and more castles than any other county in England.

Things To Do

Wildlife is one of the major attractions to the area making it the perfect location for glamping with the kids. Directly opposite are the world-famous Farne Islands, a bird sanctuary which is home to hundreds of thousands of visiting seabirds and one of the UK’s largest grey seal colonies. Any keen nature lovers in the family will thoroughly enjoy a day visit here.

Boat trips to the islands leave from Seahouses during the season (Easter – October). Watch red squirrels roaming the grounds of Alnwick’s Hulne Park or why not take a Puffin Cruise to Coquet Island off Amble? This is where thousands of puffins congregate during the breeding season.

This glamping trip is packed with sight-seeing opportunities as there are castles and country houses galore. There are even some remaining sections of Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site which can also be found in Northumberland.. So bring your walking boots and let’s get ready to explore!

Great to spend time with old friends and make new ones too. Lisa and Cath did a great job coordinating us all, organising day trips, evening meets and helping the group to mingle. Top job ladies. Thanks for helping us make fab memories. "

Pippa and Ey 6 - (Northumberland and Wigwams 2018)

" We’ve had a great week. This was our first SWK holiday and I was a bit apprehensive before coming but I was greeted by Cath as soon as I got here – who is very friendly, as are all of the guests. It’s been so nice meeting such lovely people and for Ey having people his own age to play with. It’s been good having optional stuff planned. I enjoyed all the day trips and the BBQ together. The facilities here are good. The kitchen in the bunk barn could be a bit bigger/better set out and have an extra fridge, but that is a minor detail. A memorable, enjoyable week. Thanks very much and hope to see you soon. "

Poppy 6 (and Claire) - (Northumberland and Wigwams 2018)

" That was a very good holiday and my favourite part was seeing the seals and the puffins. I also liked going to the beach. I loved going to Alnwick Castle and seeing the giant in the pond. I liked staying in the bunk house and I liked the bedroom. "

Ian and Katie 14 - (Northumberland and Wigwams 2018)

" The holiday was very eventful. We enjoyed our time on the site and the coordinators Lisa and Cath were very kind and helpful when we got to the site and throughout the holiday. Our favourite part was being down at the beach and in the sea. The Wigwams were very nice and the people were great. "

Alison and Sam 14 - (Northumberland and Wigwams 2018)

" This was our first holiday and it far exceeded my expectations. The setting and accommodation was fabulous and the other holidaymakers were great. My children made friends immediately and the host did everything possible to introduce people and include everyone there. We came home and booked another break away immediately. Highlights were the boat trip followed by everyone picnicing on the beach! The experience was a little daunting ... I nearly cancelled! ... but I was immediately made to feel welcome as the host knew our names, had been expecting us and introduced us to everyone. It couldn't have gone better. "

It's a great way for you and your kids to have a holiday without feeling like you're on your own. "

Susan & Catrin 8 - (Wigwams 2016)

" The facilities well exceeded expectations. I really thought Bill was excellent , he made sure everyone was included and was super organised and clear. I ve been away with mango and it was a bit chaotic, it was so great to have a clear itinerary from the start which we could either do or not. Bill really had impressive skills at managing a group which I appreciate is not to be underestimated! "

Fenella & George 6 - (Wigwams 2016)

" This holiday was brilliant, and we have met some wonderful people, an amazing group of parents and children in the wigwams.The seaside location is perfect, and the wigwam accommodation and facilities are excellent "

Jo and Oliver 12, Sophie 7 - (Northumberland Wigwams)

" We had a brilliant time and bonded together as a group in the wigwams. We would definitely book another trip. The highlight? Meeting other mums in the same situation as myself. Hearing the kids talk about what a lovely time they had had one the way home. "

Ruth & Molly - (Northumberland Wigwams)

" So much to do, and a fabulous barn. The highlights? The days out – Alnwick and Lindisfarne boat trip. For my daughter, the day at the beach. So much to do, and a fabulous barn! We’ve already booked xmas at Hargate and really looking forward to it. We really loved the bunk barn option instead of camping "

Emma and Frances, Lily - (Northumberland Wigwams)

" The highlight? Seeing all the kids having such a good time together – an ideal way to holiday with children when you are on your own "

Mary and Christopher - (Northumberland Wigwam)

" A beautiful part of the country, with so much to do and so many options whatever age your child. My son and I both loved it "

Heather and Nathan, Rosie - (Northumberland Wigwams)

" It was great to have other single mums to talk to as well as other children for mine to play with. There were lots of planned activities but you could choose to opt in or out which was great. Also, those without their own transport teamed up with families who had space in their car, where possible which meant you got to know each other more quickly. "

Julie and Sam, Hannah - (Majorca, Northumberland, Centre Parcs)

" I have just returned from my first SWK holiday to Majorca. What a fab time we had. Of course it was nerve racking to start with but everyone was so friendly. A big thank you to Chrissie who made us so welcome. Everyone helped everyone out so it felt like you were on holiday with your family – perfect for people like me who have children of different ages with very different interests and needs.
When I think of the 3 holidays I took the kids on before SWk on my own and how lonely I felt and compare it to Majorca there is no comparison !!! I made some great friends that I have seen since arriving back in England – even though they live “up North” and they have introduced me to other SWK members too! My kids made great friends too, who they cant wait to meet up with at Wickstead. So if you are reading this and you have booked something and are nervous – don’t be! you will have a great time If you are thinking about taking the plunge and booking a SWK holiday go on do it! "
