The Idyllic Springhouse Country Park, situated in the scenic forest outside Hexham, is a great holiday retreat for the family.

Our small football pitch, basketball net and epic climbing frame are great to keep the children amused, or rather you can take the whole family on a scenic walk through the forest, surrounded by the beauty of Northumberland’s wildlife. The nearby town of Hexham is known for its picturesque scarcity, elaborate folklores and legends, leather manufacturing and historical constructs. The crypt of Hexham Abbey, which survives from 674, incorporates stones taken from the nearby Roman ruins of Hadrian’s Wall. The Old Gaol, behind the Moot Hall on Hallgates, ordered by the Archbishop of York, was the first purpose built jail in England. It is now a museum featuring the Border History Library where visitors can research their family history. The Folklore, Myths and Legends of Britain Museum was built to celebrate all the weird of wonderful tales of old from across the nation. Eight artists were commissioned to create work in response to various aspects of the UK’s rich folkloric history, including the tales of the Green Man. A famous story with its roots in Hexham itself is that of the Wolf of Allendale. When you’re choosing holiday homes for sale in Northumberland, make sure to ask the locals about this tale. It is based entirely on a true story from the winter of 1904 but quickly became part of the town’s folklore traditions. At the time, the newspapers began reporting the local farmers’ concerns of loss of livestock in attacks which seemed to match those of a wolf in the village of Allendale. Many locals claimed to have seen the wolf, though descriptions seemed to differ.
