First-time hot tub break in Northumberland? Here are some quick tips to help things go more smoothly!
Most lodges offer off-road parking right next to your lodge which makes unloading the goods quick work.
Packing a car for a few nights, or a week can be a daunting task, especially if you’re going away with a baby or younger kids. Thankfully Northumberland has plenty of shops where you can pick up anything you forget.
Most lodges will have a well-equipped kitchen that includes a fridge, freezer, oven, hob and microwave but they won’t normally have things like salt and pepper and cooking oil.
If you’re travelling a distance and are worried about food spoiling, leave the fresh stuff. Not everyone likes to call at the supermarket once they arrive on holiday and prefer to hit the hot tub, but if you don’t mind shopping when you arrive, it can save you from having to pack food.
Depending on the lodge you might get some basics such as milk and tea and coffee and some biscuits. Some lodge parks will have a small shop where you can buy local meats and produce along with some basics you might need.
While children might love the hot tub, it’s good to know whether there’s more to see and do if you’re taking the children on a lodge break. Northumberland is packed with places you can take your family.
You’ll definitely want to visit some of the National Trust locations throughout the area (which have some incredible playparks!) Wallington Hall and Cragside Hall make for a really memorable day out and there’s enough there to merit a full day.
When you book a lodge, the hot tub will be drained and refilled prior to your arrival. In the majority of lodges, this will happen directly after the previous check out which gives the hot tub plenty of time to heat up to around 38 degrees for your arrival.
Like anywhere, this county is fantastic to visit in the sunny months wearing T-shirts and sitting out on the grass but it’s equally as good to come at any time of the year. We’ve holidayed in Northumberland in the rain, sun and even heavy snow and there’s still lots open and plenty to see and do in the Winter months.
