We paid a visit to Trees at Tughall, one of two Northumberland farms named among the best new glamping spots in the UK by the Times
For those looking for a luxury stay in the North East, it doesn’t always mean booking into a hotel or a spa.
With the explosion of glamping in recent years, there are a number of quirky and unusual accommodations including shepherds’ huts, cabins and even a treehouse that opens out to the stars in Kielder. The second of the two Northumberland farms included in the Times best new glamping spots in the UK list is Trees at Tughall in Chathill (the other is Hillside Huts and Cabins near Morpeth).
Opened in February 2022 and aiming to offer minimalist luxury, the three cabins have a contemporary and modern design and are intended to allow visitors to make the most of their surroundings. They also have the benefit of being close to some of the most popular visitor locations in Northumberland – Bamburgh and Beadnell.

Wim Stevenson, director at Trees at Tughall, said: “We’re punching up there with the big boys – it’s amazing. We set out to try and make some of the best cabins in the country effectively, but it’s edifying to know you’ve actually done it – and the area has so much to offer we wanted cabins of sufficient quality to do it justice.
“The design is an accumulation of references and cues that are very much of the area – the black larch cladding is very trendy at the moment but we chose it to reference and pay homage to the local fishermen’s shacks. That and the quality of the design, the attention to detail, and the design ethos are all really important to us.

“I think it’s a real boon for the area as well, tourism is going to be increasing for the next couple of decades at least and to have some nationally recognised accommodation is huge for the area.”
