Allen Banks is a well-known beauty spot – perfect for a meandering walk, whether with a loved one, your children or your dog. The River Allen is a tributary of the Tyne, surrounded by ancient woodlands, gorges and dramatic views – best seen from the wibbly wobbly suspension bridge there. In autumn, Allen banks is studded with wild mushrooms and toadstools, shy wildlife and a plethora of birds, including woodpeckers and nuthatches.
Just a country mile (or three!) away from Allen Banks is cosy Henshaw Hideaway (sleeps 4). After you’ve explored Allen Banks, you can take in the Roman Wall and The Sill Discovery Centre – before settling down in the fresh air outside of the cottage to enjoy those wide open rural views. From just £75 per night, this cosy cottage costs less than £20 per person!
