Gateway to the Cheviots

Take the B6348 off the main A1, not far from the opposite turn off to Bamburgh, and head in the direction of Chatton and Wooler. When night falls along this road you know you are close to a relative wilderness and far from the maddening crowds, which makes it a great place for a cottage rental, for those who like to look at the stars and be up with the larks on their windowsill.

This is the domain of Chillngham Castle, and there’s some great villages on your way to the Cheviots.

The Gateway to the Cheviots throws up many lovely little details like this.
