HIGHBURN HOUSE COUNTRY HOLIDAY PARK
Burnhouse Road, Wooler
Contact: Robert and Jill
Tel: 01668 281344
E-mail: Relax@highburn-house.co.uk
Highburn House is a family run park, which is set on a small working farm. The Park is scenically situated with its central running stream and panoramic views overlooking the Cheviot Hills and valleys. There is a spacious area for campers or tourers with or without electric hook-up, which is bordered with trees. We also welcome dogs though they must be kept on a lead, bearing in mind our cattle, sheep and lambs in the neighbouring fields.
We are only a short walk (1/4 mile) from the main shopping area in the market town of Wooler, which has everything from local foods to home-made pottery, to a dance at the disco or just a quiet drink at the many public houses.
