Walking, outdoor swimming, paddle boarding, cycling and golf are some of the many activities available in Northumberland. Our guest handbook contains leaflets and guides to help you plan your time with us. Your hosts, Mike and Lorna, have lived in the main house for 18 years and Mike has recently retired after setting up and running a local Music Social Enterprise called Core Music for 15 years. If music is one of your interests, then Mike can help you find concerts and events that you may enjoy. He is also a golfer, of sorts, and can provide information on the various courses within easy reach of Hexham and further afield. During his time at Core Music, Mike particularly enjoyed meeting people from all over the UK and beyond and is always on hand to advise and chat about the local area. Lorna works as a self-employed psychotherapist and is a very keen outdoor swimmer on a mission to convert people to this particular activity! If outdoor swimming is your thing Lorna can advise on the best places to have a dip.
