Fieldhead offers a very unique setting for those who seek an off grid break in the heart of the Northumberland Dark Sky Park. Sleeps 2


For those who seek an off grid break in the heart of the Northumberland Dark Sky Park, Fieldhead offers a very unique setting. Standing alone this one bedroomed property is surrounded by moors and fields with a private wild swimming lake very close by.

One well behaved dog is very welcome

The house is accessed via a steepish dirt track but suitable for all vehicles in the drier months and 4 x 4’s if it’s very wet, we are able to assist with transport up there if needed, the 360 degrees views and solitude are well worth it!

    Open plan living, dining and kitchen space. Seating for two with TV and comfy sofa and large wood burning stove.

  • Access

    The house is accessed via a steepish dirt track but suitable for all vehicles in the drier months and 4 x 4's if it's very wet.

  • Off Grid

    Electricity is provided by solar power and wind power (recently upgraded) with the hot water and the stove ran by bottled gas. Although the electricity supply is adequate it is important not to leave things on if not required, it's best not to bring electrical appliances with elements, (hairdryers, irons etc) as they will drain the supply especially at night. From time to time the water pressure may drop due to hight of the house and the usage in the valley below.

  • Also

    All fuel, power, bed linen and towels included. There is a good 4G signal if you want it and Wifi but it won't be the fastest, just enough to stream a movie if you wish. The nearest pub and restaurant can be found at the Boe Rigg Campsite in the valley below and you can walk there in 30 mins, take torch for the way home though!

This is really a super special place to stay. From arriving in the dark to find cows surrounding the house(!), to experiencing living off-grid, it was really something. Really great to have endless moors immediately behind us to take the dogs on and it was really toasty warm. Incredible views. Bring wellies. Preferably a 4x4 to get up the track, too.
