Wooler is a small friendly town at the gateway to the Cheviot Hills and Northumberland National Park in the south west of Berwick District; it sits in scenic (Glen Dale) Glendale and is a 15 minute drive from our Northumberland cottage at Fenton Hill. It is also the inspiration for the character Postman Pat.
The town can cater for most of your daily needs for shopping and socialising. It has a selection of small specialist shops, small grocery stores, good traditional butchers, bakeries and the Good Life Delicatessen for specialist cheeses, organic and wholesome products. Wooler with its backdrop of the Cheviot Hills also has good coffee shops and places to eat including the Tankerville Arms and Milan Restaurant which offers Italian inspired cuisine and a range of local fish, chicken, vegetarian and meat dishes. The Milan is perfect for an early evening meal with the family or for a special meal. The Milk Bar in Wooler is owned by Doddington Dairy which makes delicious ice cream, cheese and yogurt, it serves very good reasonably priced local food and wonderful coffee and milk shakes which are a firm favourite with our grandchildren. Wooler Tourist Information Centre in the Cheviot Centre is open each day for any advice needed.
The landscape around Wooler offers some of the most exhilarating walks in Northumberland; you will find many routes for these along with a good selection of tourist information in your Northumberland self-catering accommodation at Fenton Hill.
