There are plenty of things to do when you visit Northumberland and you will never be short of stunning sights and unforgettable days out when you visit us.
The brand new North Pennines Observatory is our next door neighbour and has events running throughout the year (its only a five minute walk away) There are plenty of lovely walks for all ability levels around the North Pennines, as well as lots of lovely cafe’s and pubs.
Please be aware that access to the property is via a rough farm track and may not be suitable for low slung vehicles.
Steeped in character and local history, Newhouses is over 200 years old and was built in 1788 by Sir Thomas Blackett, thus the name for our business Blacketts Retreat. Set in the North Pennines and standing 1600 feet above sea level, Allenheads is one of the highest villages in England. Newhouses was originally a short row of cottages provided for workers in the Allenheads Leadmines. Today it is warm and comfortable with welcoming fires and the most amazing views over the Allen Valleys and fells. Our chickens,ducks and geese free range around our grounds and will happily visit you when you open the door, which is always a hit with children. We also have visiting red squirrels in our garden and you may well see one during your stay with us. The North Pennines is a particular favourite with walkers exporing Northumberland and the stunning Isaac’s Tea Trail (a 58km walk through the North Pennines), Coast to Coast cyclists cycling the ‘original’ sea to sea route, as well as star gazing enthusiasts, nature lovers and bird watchers. From early May the Curlews call can be heard clearly and these beautiful wading birds fly over our property to nest in the fields above us, a rare treat.
Mike and Janine Swindale are the owners of Blacketts Retreat. Based at Newhouses in Allenheads Northumberland, we welcome you to this beautiful area which is set in quiet seclusion above the village.
