Wooler Hostel and Shepherds' Huts offer a traditional Hostelling experience with a truly northern welcome. Good value accommodation suitable for single travellers, families, and large groups looking to stay in North Northumberland. Guests can enjoy a stay in one of the newly refurbished en-suite bedrooms in the hostel or in one of the traditional and distinctive Shepherds' Huts- which capture the true spirit of the Northumbrian countryside.
In an enviable rural location on the edge of Northumberland National Park with panoramic views across Glendale, the Hostel is one of the area's most understated places to stay with access to the hills and countryside of North Northumberland and the National Park on your doorstep. The Park enjoys official 'Dark Sky Status' and visitors to Wooler during the winter months are rewarded generously with some of the deepest darkest skies.
Guests can access countless short walks in the local area, and longer walks into the Cheviot Hills.
If you would like to explore the area, why not speak to Karl or Cindy and they can share some of their vast knowledge of the local countryside. Karl is a qualified Mountain Leader and can take you away from the crowds and show you secret places, places steaped in folklore and history. He runs a guided walking company Reiver Guiding and regulary takes out groups into the hills of Northumberland and further a field.
Anything from kayaking, navigation training, climbing, coasteering or wildlife walks on the coast it can all be booked directly from the Hostel.
Cyclists have access to limitless terrain, from Wooler - the home of the Wooler Cycle Hub- with 7 routes radiating from the centre of Glendale. And for the serious cyclists, there is the Wooler Wheel sportive to tackle.
