  • (1888PressRelease) July 08, 2010 - This month saw Wigwam Holidays set up camp on the stunningly beautiful Northumberland coast near Seahouses.

    With a strikingly panoramic backdrop of Bamburgh Castle, the Farne Islands and the Cheviot Hills the Gregory family of Springhill Farm Accommodation welcomed five wigwams® to cluster on their 500-acre working organic farm.

    The family, which offers a full range of holiday accommodation, from five-star self catering cottages to camping and caravan pitches and even a bijou bunkhouse wanted to offer visitors a "glamping" - glamorous camping - experience.

    "We were immediately drawn to the wigwams® because they reminded us of the upturned boats which serve as sheds on nearby Holy Island and at the fishing village of Beadnell," said Julie Gregory, who runs the accommodation side of the farm with daughter Sarah. Husband Colin and son Simon tend to the crops and livestock on this friendly, coastal farm.

    "We love the look and feel of the wigwams®, which are a really fun way to holiday but their design and layout means they are a cosy and comfy alternative to camping as well, which our guests already love. We've had bookings from customers who have camped with us before and who love the experience of camping but are now won over by the added comfort offered by the wigwams®."

    Sarah Gregory said: "We're in the heart of the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and we have a silver award for Green Tourism. Our farm is organic and we try to consider and be in keeping with the natural environment around us. The fact that the wigwams® are made from sustainable, home-grown timber and are well insulated and double-glazed is an added bonus.

    Springhill Farm wigwams® are just half a mile from the coastline, where beaches stretch to Bamburgh in the north and the bustling fishing village of Seahouses to the south. The Eden of the north, Alnwick Garden, is just 20 minutes drive away with its famous Tree house restaurant.

    And a stay in this part of the country wouldn't be complete without a boat trip to the world-famous Farne Islands. Rated as one of the country's top wildlife experiences, the Farne Islands are home to hundreds of thousands of seabirds, the UK's largest grey seal colony and have many prime diving and fishing sites.

    Around the farm itself is a private nature trail where young and old alike will delight in exploring the sights, sounds and experiences of the Northumberland countryside around Springhill. Cycling enthusiasts won't be disappointed either and can meander through the countryside at their leisure on the National Coast and Castle Cycle routes which both pass through the Springhill Farm area and provide the perfect opportunity to absorb the stunning scenery in this part of the country.

    On the Sustrans Coast & Castles National Route 1 there are plenty of quiet country lanes with wonderful coast and country views taking in the area's best attractions like Bamburgh Castle. Team this with secure bike storage, laundry and drying facilities and there's everything cyclists need for a comfortable place to stay.
