There are a huge range of activities to enjoy in Northumberland, suitable for a variety of ages and interests, and whatever the weather brings you.

Something for everyone…

Northumberland truly does have something for everyone. Whether you want to take it easy and relax, or are looking for an energetic few days away, there’s an activity for you.

There are miles and miles of nationally renowned cycling and walking trails, and we have Europe’s largest area of protected night sky. Whether you’re a couple, a family, part of a group or seeking some solitude there’s no better place to be.


Brown Rigg works closely with local businesses and we can help to arrange a wide range of facilities and activities on-site at Brown Rigg.


There is a total of 350 miles of cycle paths in Northumberland. Four of the most famous cycle routes in the country run through Northumberland: Hadrian’s Cycleway, The Coast & Castles, Pennine Cycleway, and the UK’s most popular route, the Sea to Sea (C2C).


This area is a walking paradise! The local area is rich with walking trails to suit every type of walker. Two popular walking trails are The Pennine Way (National Trail) and Hareshaw Linn.


Brown Rigg is in the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. Due to very low levels of light pollution, on clear nights we see thousands of stars overhead compared with just a handful that can be seen from towns and cities!

Occupying a privileged area in the North Tyne Valley we are ideally located for a spot of Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout fishing, with the well-stocked waters at Kielder and the North and South Tyne river within easy reach.


The hills of the North Tyne will be alive with the sound of music as a much-loved festival makes its return. The Bellingham All Acoustic Music Festival, better known as BAAFest, takes place in the first week of September.


The Bellingham show is now 175 years old and is always held on the last Saturday in August. It’s a perfect day out for all the family in the heart of the Northumberland countryside, just over the fence from Brown Rigg.

“This is a fantastic place to stay, perfect for our large group of friends. We love the facilities in the lodges and the hall is great for the children to play in and for us to be able to eat together as one big group in the evening.”


A peaceful and tranquil place for a relaxing holiday, Brown Rigg Lodges are spacious and comfortable. Each lodge has three bedrooms sleeping up to six people per lodge.


Our six stylish Guest Rooms have an en-suite shower room each, and each bedroom can be configured as a twin room with two single beds or as a double room with a Super-King Bed.
