About Lucker Mill Shepherds Huts
Glampers, adults, dogs – yes. Campers, tents, caravans, motorhomes, children – no.
The vast beaches of the Northumberland Coast are just a few miles away and Bamburgh, with its iconic cliff-top castle (01668 214208), is one of the closest places to visit it. There are dozens of other castles worth visiting in the area; perhaps the best-known is Alnwick Castle (01665 511100), 13 miles away. Back on the coast, Seahouses (seven miles from site) is the fishing village to head for if you want to take a trip out to the Farne Islands, where you can see seals and huge colonies of sea birds nesting, including puffins, terns and guillemots. The ancient tidal island of Lindisfarne can be reached (at low tide) by a causeway, 15 miles from Lucker Mill B&B. There, you can visit the English Heritage-protected ruins of Lindisfarne Priory (0128 9389200) along with its associated museum as well as the National Trust’s Lindisfarne Castle (01289 389244). Fortified Berwick-upon-Tweed is about 20 miles away: great for a day out or to take a train over the Scottish border for a day out in Edinburgh, an hour’s train ride away. The Cheviot Hills within the Northumberland National Park are about 15 miles inland and a popular place for walking.
Food & Drink
A continental-style breakfast basket is provided with all stays in the shepherd's hut. The nearby Apple Inn is a family-run, recommended gastropub (01668 213824) – just a couple of minute’s walk away. A little further, but not far (a mile-and-a-half walk across fields away), is The White Swan Inn at Warensford (01668 213453). For picnic or barbecue supplies, head to Belford (four miles away) or Seahouses for the Co-op and other shops.

Whether heading north from Newcastle (and beyond) or south from Edinburgh (and beyond), take the A1, exiting on to the B1341 when you see Lucker and Bamburgh signposted. Turn right when you see Lucker signposted and follow the road into the village and past the church on the left and The Apple Inn on the right. About 100 metres further on, you’ll find Lucker Mill B&B signposted on the right hand side.
The nearest recommended railway station is at Berwick-upon-Tweed which has good connections to Edinburgh, Newcastle and beyond. From there it’s possible to take a taxi to Lucker B&B - but a car is recommended in this rural location. The nearest bus stop is a mile-and-a-half from site in Warenford.
