About Pot a Doodle Do

With loads to do, a choice of wigwams to suit every family, and the stunning surroundings , the super snug and cosy wooden wigwams at Pot a Doodle Do, in Northumberland are a real treat. The site is ideally located just minutes from Cocklawburn and other sandy beaches providing incredible views over to the sea and Berwick upon Tweed. And with a play area and art studio on-site there’s lots of proper family fun to be had whatever the weather.

Finnish BBQ huts can be hired for exclusive use, perfect for gathering groups of friends and family for an evening, and the oodles of optional extras from bedding to bunting make family glamping extra easy and special.

The Wigwams

Each of the 27 wigwams is insulated and double glazed, and comes with a panel heater, electrical sockets, fridge and kettle. The bench seating with thick foam mattresses converts to a wall to wall sleeping area.  Outside the wigwam you have your own decking area and picnic table so that you can enjoy sitting outdoors. Parking is in the designated area close to your wigwam.

Wee Brave Wigwams sleep 3 and Big Chiefs sleep 5. If you want the dog (or 2 of them!) to enjoy the great outdoors too then book into one of the 5 dog-friendly wigwams.

If you’re looking for that little bit extra from your glamping experience then there are 2 ensuite wigwams with toilet, basin and shower. These also come with TVs and DVD players, great for keeping the kids amused in the mornings or just to chill relax and watch a movie.

The jewel in the crown is The Grand Canyon - an ensuite wigwam with shower room and kitchen area with hob, microwave, fridge,washing up sink, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery. There is also a table and chairs inside for those mornings or evenings when it’s a little too wet to sit outside, a TV with DVD player, and patio doors which open up to a spectacular view over the sea to Berwick upon Tweed.

Kids and Parents

As there’s so much to do on site, and in the surrounding area, plus excellent family friendly facilities, glamping at Pot-a-doodle do can be a ...doddle! Cots are available to hire, as are towels, bedding, chairs, lanterns and campfires.

If you’re visiting for a celebration there’s plenty of extras available such as bunting, fairy lights, adult and kids celebration packs to make things extra easy.

The shower and toilet block is well designed for those with little ones, with special family shower rooms so that you can deal with all the family in one place. Hairdryers are also available in the shower block, and there’s a washing machine and tumble dryer in the communal kitchen so you don’t have to worry about soggy socks - don’t forget to take some £1 coins along for these as well as electricity.

Take a torch for late night toilet block visits, and wellies for exploring on muddy days, and pack some matches if you’re planning a campfire.

Food & Drink

The spacious communal kitchen is equipped with cookers, kettles, toasters, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery. There are tables and chairs, and a TV at the back of the kitchen.

BBQ meat packs , breakfast packs, afternoon tea, sparkling wine and chocolates can be delivered to your wigwam.

If you’d rather not cook there is a licensed cafe selling breakfasts, light lunches, yummy cakes, and delicious Sunday Roasts. There’s a children’s menu for little visitors, lovely coffees and a wine and beer selection too.


Pot-a-doodle do has so much to do on-site that will keep all family members happy and amused. Kids will love letting off steam in the play area, or if the weather gets decidedly British then pop to the Interactive Art Studio for some glass or ceramic painting, mosaic making or sticky decoupage fun.

Fishing folk can hire tackle, get maps and permits, and fly, bait or float fish for trout in the nearby lake.  There are also some lovely coast and countryside walks from the site to get you all enjoying the bracing Northumbrian outdoors!

For beaches then wonderful Cocklawburn is only a stroll away and has to be an early port of call for walks, dips and rockpooling. Further afield Bamburgh has miles of sandy beach and a walk to the south may reveal seals!

Whitehouse Farm Centre has indoor and outdoor play facilities; hands on animal petting and feeding sessions; an all weather treat that ticks all the boxes.

If castles are your thing then historic Alnwick Castle is a must, or watch an archeological dig at Bamburgh Castle.

The Alnwick Garden is a magical landscape of unique gardens, features and structures, with walkways in the sky, rope bridges and a Woodland Walk.

Explore the 4 miles of trails around the body of an enormous lady reclining on the countryside at Northumberlandia , which has a visitor centre and cafe. Unique!

The Owners: John and Christine

“We have been running Pot-a-doodle do since 2000 alongside our farm in Berwick upon Tweed. We are farmers through and through but decided we wanted to do something different as a diversification and decided on a restaurant, ceramic painting and fishing first then added the glamping accommodation on in 2014. We are hands on people and, with our staff, work very hard to make sure each and everyone of our guests enjoys their glamping experience with us.”

Lots of family fun to be had, and beautiful coastline and countryside to explore at this special glampsite.

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