Bothies are a rare find but look no further than Northumberland


As seen on Robson Green's Tales from Northumberland

Five star accommodation they are not. Think more along the lines of camping with a roof only with fewer facilities. Set in rural locations, Bothies act as shelters from the elements for intrepid walkers looking for total isolation from the modern world.

Bothies have been slowly disappearing from our countryside over recent years however Northumberland still boasts four of England’s nine remaining huts. Maintained by volunteers of the Mountain Bothies Association (MBA) access to these remote properties has been given by the kind permission of the owners. As such the MBA ask that visitors pay careful attention to the Bothy Code.

These shelters are free to visit with no booking required (assuming you can find them of course!).
