About Pot a Doodle Do

This hidden gem in Northumberland has cosy and heated wigwams insulated against the most bracing of breezes, and is set a short stroll from Cocklawburn beach for days of seaside wanders and rockpooling.

Pot-a-Doodle Do

Around the site there’s plenty of room to run around; those with extra energy to expend can hurtle around the securely-fenced playground, and creative small sorts can squirrel themselves away at the interactive arts centre painting figurines, tableware & tiles.

There's a two-acre lake just a couple of miles from the Pot-a-Doodle Do grounds stuffed to the gills with rainbow trout. Permits can be purchased in reception and rod hire is available.

And when you’ve landed your whopper? There’s no finer treatment for fresh trout than a quick sizzle on a barbecue or indoors in the fully-equipped kitchen that comes with each wigwam. Guests are also welcome to hire a barbecue hut with a charcoal pit and indoor seating. Campfires are available for toasting marshmallows.

And if you don't land your whopper? Despair not, for the café dishes up breakfasts, lunches and snacks, and the on-site shop stocks essentials as well as specialities like Lindisfarne mead, flavoured gins, Borewell jams & preserves as well as gifts and alternative interiors.

A short walk away, Cocklawburn beach has to be an early port of call for walks, dips and rockpooling. If you’re up for a hike with views, it’s about an hour to Berwick-upon-Tweed (or 10 minutes by car) here you will find the Historic walls around the town as well as the castle & the military museum, an old jail to get locked up in and a walking trail in the footsteps of famed northern painter LS Lowry.  Boat trips are available from the quay walls.

If you’re up for moats and ramparts, the castles of Alnwick, Bamburgh and Dunstanburgh are around half an hour’s drive away, the first of the trio being particularly popular with fans of a certain H Potter...

Lindisfarne has a fine castle too: at certain times of day you can drive or walk across the causeway to the island, or otherwise head to Seahouses (half an hour) and catch a boat to the ancient sanctuary, spotting seals and puffins enroute.

Have tea among the bees at Chain Bridge Honey Farm 15 minutes away: tours teach visitors about the industrious insects while the shop and café do a nice line in sweet treats. If mammals and reptiles are more your thing, around 50 species await at Northumberland Country Zoo (45 minutes), from pattable Shetland ponies to somewhat stinky skunks.  Ford & Etal are worth a visit too, from the Heatherslaw light railway train rides to the Heavy Horse Centre at Hay Farm.  Paxton House is a short drive from site, beautiful gardens to walk around as well as trails for the children.

​Short breaks outside of main school holidays may be available - please send a general enquiry.
