There’s nothing like an escape to the tranquil countryside to help reset, relax and recharge by being at one with nature.

So how about a spa break that combines the calming sense of nature and luxurious relaxation?  Enter The Fieldhouse & Spa at Woodland Chase – Northumberland’s newest romantic retreat.

Nestled in picturesque woodland near the charming market town of Alnwick, The Fieldhouse is for those seeking a blend of luxury, nature, and relaxation.

Here you have a unique opportunity to unwind, indulge in your own private spa and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Northumberland countryside that’s right on your doorstep.

Imagine soaking in a hot tub under a star-studded sky, followed by cosying up beside a firepit and toasting marshmallows – dream date night goals, right?

Discover this ultimate luxury countryside escape, where outdoor bliss meets modern comfort.

THE SERENE SPA EXPERIENCE

The Fieldhouse & Spa ensures that your glamping experience is complete with relaxation and rejuvenation. And with your very own private spa that’s exclusively yours, the Fieldhouse is a sanctuary for both your mind and soul.

Unwind and warm up in the wood-heated sauna as you hear the burning wood crackle and watch the rain trickling down the window. Then fire up your senses and experience the thrill of the cold dunk bucket, crafted from a recycled wooden butter churn that was used on the on-site farm.

Refresh in the outdoor shower, where water flows from a watering can, before immersing yourself in the wood-fired hot tub. Let time pass by as you sip on a glass of red and watch the sunset over the picturesque hayfield.

HLN TOP TIP: The Fieldhouse & Spa provides the full spa experience with fluffy towels, robes and slippers alongside luxury bath, shower and haircare products from local businesses.

INSIDE THE FIELDHOUSE

As you step inside through the French doors, you’ll be greeted with a luxury welcome hamper from The Running Fox (featuring, croissants, scones, granola, jam and brownies) with a bottle of fizz already waiting for you in the fridge to kick start your holiday.

The Fieldhouse’s open-plan living space, crafted from reclaimed timber and adorned with antique Victorian furniture, with its soothing palette of earthy tones, provides a truly idyllic romantic haven for two.

This luxury glamping accommodation feels like a home away from home, stocked with everything you need. From giant marshmallows for toasting on the fire to milk for your cuppa and even digestive biscuits for a cheeky dip.

Tucked in the corner is a comfy wooden handcrafted bed with drawers underneath that are filled with a selection of games and books. There’s also a small kitchen area, equipped with a hob and microwave combination oven if you want to treat your special someone to a romantic home-cooked meal.

After a day of exploration, unwind by the cosy wood-burning stove, snuggled under a soft blanket. Then, indulge in a hot bubble bath in the double-ended slipper tub, all while soaking in the tranquil views of the neighbouring hayfield — a perfect ending to your day.

THE SURROUNDINGS

Designed with indulgent inside-outside living in mind, the large, covered deck area decorated with twinkling fairy lights will shield you from nature’s elements.

Read a book as you listen to the pitter-patter of rain from the comfort of the spacious daybed, roast marshmallows by the fire pit, or truly embrace the retreat’s vibe and practice yoga on the deck with the mats provided.
