Visiting the wild and wonderful College Valley? Please read this.

Come for a day, or stay for a week.

College Valley offers over 12,000 acres of wild rugged and bio-diverse terrain for you to explore.

With limited mobile phone reception, and only 12 vehicle permits issued per day, you can enjoy the great outdoors here in the Northumbrian National Park. Whether visiting for a day, or choosing to book one of our holiday cottages  for a longer break from everyday stresses, there is something for most.

Rich with wildlife and offering the contrasts of the ever present Cheviot Massif through to the enchanting Collingwood Oaks, the valley offers a sense of escapism for every generation.

Picnics on Great Hetha beside Iron Age forts, or children playing under a watchful supervision in Hethpool Linn Pools, through to peaceful and safe cycling on the private roads – The College Valley provides an ancient solution to the modern day digital overload.

Why not visit us for either a day, a week, or longer, and re-connect with nature.
