About Cragside Bunkhouse

Restored Victorian cottage with room for 16 people, perfect for exploring Hadrian’s Wall and the wild Northumbrian coastline.

The Bunkhouse is a large holiday property that comfortably sleeps up to 16 people. Located in a converted Victorian workers cottage, the property is situated in the heart of the Cragside estate and benefits from stunning views over the lake and surrounding hills.

The ideal holiday spot for groups of family and friends, keen walkers and other special interest groups with a love for outdoor pursuits, the property is well-placed for exploring wild Northumberland.

Discover this rugged landscape, the northern border of the Roman Empire marked out by the world famous Hadrian’s Wall. 

With its dramatic cliffs and windswept beaches, Northumbria’s coastline is just as spectacular as the interior of this great northern county. 

We own and maintain many sites and places in the region and the funds generated from your stay at Cragside help us to continue this important conservation work.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
