We visited the Just So Festival (that will be a whole other review) last year and doing anything we do, we do it wholeheartedly. The last time I went camping was during my Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award at the tender age of 15. So we did our research and went all out and got the Vango 600 which in terms of camping is like a small house. But with three adventurers in tow, it was proving to be a little trying to get the tent up whilst ensuring the children’s safety and entertaining them. So we were looking at alternatives to hotels and stumbled across these wooden wigwams at Pot-a-Doodle-Do. I bet you’re all thinking cowboys and Indians. Nope, these are like wooden pods, those are tipis 😉
We had originally looked at wigwams at the Shropshire Hills and were about to book when we thought, why not Northumberland. As you will have noticed, I am a huge travelodge Fan, cheap, cheerful and does what it says on the tin. I searched for a travelodge in Northumberland and found that there was only one and it was located in Berwick. However, procrastinating and not booking straight away meant all the family rooms were booked over the spring bank holiday. I was really disappointed but didn’t want to put a dampner on things so decided to look for alternatives around Berwick and came across Pot-a-Doodle-Do in Berwick. This was the beginning of my love affair with glamping and Northumberland.
