October half term is looking a little bit different to normal, but there are still plenty of options to enjoy as a family group.  Why not wrap up warm and arrange a socially distanced get together outdoors with friends and family!

With spectacular beaches, parks and countryside there are lots of fantastic opportunities to tire the kids (and adults) out.

Family attractions in the area are open and welcoming visitors.  The kids will love Tynemouth Park, Tynemouth Aquarium and Go Ape. Or how about exploring one of the stunning castles and gardens in the area.  We have so many fabulous ice cream parlours to choose from too – a perfect treat for everyone!

Halloween is in full swing too with lots of Covid secure events to choose from. Check out our Spooky Halloween blog for some great ideas!

Only 10 weeks to Christmas, so get started with your Christmas shopping and support one of our many independent stores.  Tynemouth, Whitley Bay, Morpeth, Hexham or Corbridge are all well worth a visit.  Or hunker down in a local hostelry and enjoy some local cheer in front of a roaring fire.

Dogs love the North East too and are welcome at Burradon Farm this October half term.  Take a walk from the doorstep of your cottage or hop in the car for a short drive to a deserted beach.

Rainy days are perfect for puddle jumping and windswept beach walks or chilling indoors with a movie or a good book.  Put the kettle on, grab a takeaway afternoon tea or evening meal and relax. 

Our cottages are perfect for couples and family groups up to 6 people (one household only at the moment).  For those of you who want to avoid October half term why not take advantage of our fantastic Special Offer!
