Welcome to the new College Valley website. We have had new photos taken and we think they are amazing (believe it or not most of the time the weather wasn’t kind!). We hope you like what you see; a more modern website that can be viewed on phones and the ability to view availability and book online for our bunkhouse.
College Valley is a wild and wonderful place, a hidden landscape of great natural beauty in North Northumberland. It is within the Northumberland National Park, owned by College Valley Estates Ltd. and managed by a board of directors who meet six times a year. College Valley Estate is managed with C. V. E. in mind
C for Conservation
V for Visitors/Tourism
E for Education.
You will find this hidden gem around 11 miles from Wooler so although it feels very remote, it is relatively near civilisation.
Generally people who visit the valley come to enjoy the peace and to ‘get away from it all’. College Valley welcomes visitors on foot, bike or horse, but what makes College Valley different from many other places is vehicle access is restricted to 12 cars per day. This means people are able to enjoy the freedom the valley offers. It allows them – including children and dogs – to do things they can’t do elsewhere, like cycle safely and paddle in the river.
