Gift Vouchers Gift Guide
Luxury glamping in Northumberland. Shepherds Retreats certainly lives up to its name with every little detail thought through by the owners. The Sanderling and The Sandpiper are situated on the outskirts of Beadnell village and are the most idyllic retreats. The golden sands of Beadnell Bay are within view of the huts and only a 15-minute walk away, through the village. So whether you want to unwind in the tranquil surroundings or have a romantic break, these huts, with private gardens are the perfect location. In the evening you can stargaze under the Northumberland Dark Skies whilst relaxing in the beautifully crafted Scandinavian fresh-water wood-fired hot tub with a bottle of fizz. Or alternatively, you can relax on the patio and enjoy alfresco dining with the BBQ/pizza oven – or do both! In case of a chill, the huts have log burners to keep you snug and warm, with a glass ceiling above the beds to ensure you can continue star-gaze long into the night. The Shepherds Huts are situated in their own areas with individual access and also adjoining gates if rented together. Wake in the morning and enjoy a cuppa in bed whilst soaking up the amazing sea views. Here, you get back in touch with nature yet enjoy all the trappings of luxury accommodation.
The gift vouchers are packaged in a recycled box with either one or two coasters (£50 vouchers – 1 coaster and £100 and above – 2 coasters)

Tall Tales Mystery Murders
The perfect way to keep in touch and have fun with family and friends during a global pandemic. Tall Tales has online events every weekend between now and Christmas, plus two New Year’s Eve events too. They also have a virtual murder mystery weekend in January where guests have the opportunity to play mini characters in an immersive storyline over two nights. Guests can take part in interactive workshops with a magician, a forensic investigator and some Meet the Author events, where they’ll meet crime writers to hear how they create their stories and where they get their inspiration. So the virtual murder mystery weekend would make an incredible and unusual Christmas present!
Tall Tales Mystery Murders are also offering virtual Christmas parties on every Saturday throughout December. Tickets are £12 per person. This year’s script is called Who Sleighed Santa – it’s wonderfully funny and would be a great night in for groups of friends and family to enjoy an unusual event together.
