What is your perfect short break holiday?

We think that a short break holiday is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with your partner and indulge in activities that you just don’t get the time for ordinarily.

A luxury stay at the Hiddle Hut gives our guests time to stop, rest and recover from daily pressures and immerse themselves in the landscape.

Everyone asks, ‘What does ‘Hiddle’ mean?’

Hiddle is a very old Northumbrian and Borders word meaning, ‘a hiding place or place of sanctuary’. As a verb you could be ‘hiddling’ meaning ‘to nestle closely, to shelter in one’s arms.’

 I couldn’t imagine a better description for the ethos of our luxury cabin.

Designed for couples who want to get closer to nature but with all of the luxuries of modern living. A private and quite space in a stunning rural setting with indulgent touches and specifically with relaxation and pleasure at its core.

With a spiral staircase, deep reclaimed double ended bath, monsoon shower, large picture windows to frame the views, a fully equipped kitchen and a log burner, we like to think that we have thought of everything for our guest’s comfort.

Situated near the most iconic stretches of Hadrian’s Wall and with the most pristine dark skies, our two-storey cabin allows guests to detox from the stresses of modern life. With opportunities to walk and enjoy the most diverse countryside from rural byways, rugged coastline, golden deserted beaches and the rolling hills and mountains that our vast county boasts.

Our landscape is steeped in history; from Roman settlements and Forts to Bronze age Cup and Ring marks. Norman churches, and evidence of Viking occupancy pepper the Countryside around here.

Guests can walk from the Hiddle Hut to nearby Vindolanda Museum with its world famous ‘Tablets’ or the Roman versions of postcards. It is the site of a Roman Fort which is still undergoing excavations and which shows it was under Roman occupation from roughly 85AD to 370 AD.

Our pristine dark skies in Northumberland are perfect for stargazing, thanks to minimal light pollution. With all of the guides and equipment you need in the hut to stargaze outside on the bespoke viewing platforms, as well as a stargazing roof above the hand-built bed for those who want to snuggle and stargaze. For those who want to learn more about the stars and Planets with an expert, the nearby Twice Brewed Planetarium has almost daily events throughout the year.

The hut sits in its own private field, immersed in nature with views across open farmland and down to the Tyne Valley with the River South Tyne flowing in the valley. A private garden with a log burner/grill and gates leading to the kitchen garden and further on to a wooded copse, there is a meandering path through to an open glade.

Sit with a drink and take in the views.
