Vindolanda is a short walk away from Vallum Lodge and is a must see whilst visiting the area.

In 2017 Vindolanda made some amazing finds, such as wafer thin writing tablets, complete swords, leather shoes, and fighting gloves.  After research of the objects experts indicated that the gloves were in fact boxing gloves and probably the only known surviving examples from the Roman period.

Hadrian's Wall with a twist


Walking in the stunning Northumberland National Park and the world famous Hadrian's Wall

Why not enjoy a walk along the most iconic sections of Hadrians's wall and then head off North to pick up the Pennine Way path, where you can stop off at a remote mountain bothy in the middle of the woods for lunch. After lunch you will then head off to walk along Greenlee Lough which takes you through a mosaic of habitats, which all look very different depending on the time of year.  The birdlife and insects these habitats support also changes with the seasons.  Taking time to stop off at the bird hide to watch the wildlife on the lough.  Then heading on to pick up the Hadrian's wall path heading towards the highest point along the wall to see the breathtaking views of the vast countryside.
