The bunkhouse is a quirky and unique space set in the heart of Northumberland. Perfect for group stays.

The Joiner’s Shop Bunkhouse is nestled nicely in the wooded hamlet of Preston, at the bottom of the hill secluded from nearby abodes. The building dates back to the 1860s when it was a purpose-built Joiners Shop: eventually the cottage became a family dwelling and in the early 1990s the Workshop was converted into a bunkhouse, and here we have the birth of this magical place!

The Joiner’s Shop Bunkhouse is very much a traditional, get away from it all, bunkhouse. It is all thrills and no frills! It’s not shiny and modern but rustic, cosy and wholesome. We have everything you need for a comfortable stay: heating throughout, hot showers, 18 sturdy pine bunk beds, full kitchen including oven, fridge and microwave, long kitchen table, living room with plenty of seating and an open fire. There is also plenty of parking and an outdoor area to enjoy the sun or gaze at the open dark skies (you can see thousands of stars on a clear night!)

There are 18 beds in the bunkhouse, they are separated into sections of 2s, 3s and a 5. So although the dorm is still a shared space there is a sense of privacy with plywood and curtained sections. The bathroom has 2 hot electric showers, 3 loos and 3 sinks. The loos, kitchen and living area are all shared spaces.
