Bed-and-breakfast-style glamping in a neat, off-grid shepherd’s hut close to the Northumberland coast

Like all of the rooms in this well-respected B&B, five miles from the Northumberland coast, the shepherd's hut that lives in the garden outside has a made-up bed, towels and even white fluffy robes. But out amongst the dawn chorus and the spectacular sunrises you’re that bit further from the temptations of technology. The Lucker Mill shepherd's hut is off grid with no TV, no plug for your phone and no lights (save for tea-light candles, torches and the glow from the fire). It’s a deliberately simple space; a sleeping hut for two that’s closer to a traditional shepherd’s hut than some, with natural wood and whitewashed interiors. But, of course, this is a holiday and not the lonely sheep fields of yesteryear, so there are mod cons and facilities a short walk away. Back by the house there’s an immaculate toilet, a shower and a kitchen with fridge, kettle, microwave and the chance to charge your phone – should you choose to. Chances are you'll choose the simple life of a good book and a pair of binoculars once you settle in.

The kitchen is useful for tea, coffee, snacks and packed lunches but there’s really no need to cook here as you can walk, in less than five minutes, to local pub, The Apple Inn. It’s the easiest option if, like most people who come, you are out exploring all day. And with so much to do here, who could blame you? There’s proper walking if you head inland to the hills; The Cheviots, in the Northumberland National Park. They vie for attention as the main attraction but it’s the stunning Northumberland coast that most people come for: the vast beaches, the Farne Islands full of breeding seabirds and seals, and the brooding Borderland castles overlooking it all. Bamburgh is just three miles away and magnificent Alnwick, almost as well known for its part in the Harry Potter films as for its 1,000-year history, is 10 miles further. Lindisfarne Island, Berwick-upon-Tweed, and even Edinburgh are all day trips from here – places to inspire conversation under the Northumberland stars later and dreams while you doze by the fire.

Getting There

Whether heading north from Newcastle (and beyond) or south from Edinburgh (and beyond), take the A1, exiting on to the B1341 when you see Lucker and Bamburgh signposted. Turn right when you see Lucker signposted and follow the road into the village and past the church on the left and The Apple Inn on the right. About 100 metres further on, you’ll find Lucker Mill B&B signposted on the right hand side.

The nearest recommended railway station is at Berwick-upon-Tweed which has good connections to Edinburgh, Newcastle and beyond. From there it’s possible to take a taxi to Lucker B&B - but a car is recommended in this rural location. The nearest bus stop is a mile-and-a-half from site in Warenford.
