Families and Friends

At Brown Rigg, there’s something for everyone whether you’re aged from 0 to 100, both on-site and in the surrounding area.

Within our grounds you can play Football, Cricket, and Swing Ball. Children can ride their bikes or scooters around the tarmac courtyard or everyone could enjoy a day out on one of the many cycle routes or doorstep walks here in the Northumberland National Park.

For those interested in history we highly recommend a visit to Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum. Hadrian’s Wall is within easy reach and there are also several National Trust properties nearby. You can also take a stroll around Northern Europe’s biggest man-made lake in the Kielder Forest Park. Look out for ospreys, red squirrels, pipistrelle bats, roe deer, salmon and otters.

In the evenings, why not enjoy a barbeque with your friends and family, have a game of pool and table tennis in our Games and Function Hall, then round the night off under the stars right here in Europe’s largest International Dark Sky Park.
