The clean air and natural beauty of the area has built the reputation of Wooler & Glendale as a place to relax and recuperate. Early visitors included Daniel Defoe, Sir Walter Scott and local heroine Grace Darling. The magnificent backdrop of Humbleton Hill is mentioned in the opening scenes of one of the country's greatest literary works – Shakespeare’s Henry IV.

The bustling main street serves the rural area of Glendale and hosts specialist shops and cafes and a wide range of accommodation is on offer to entice visitors to stay and sample the best of the great outdoors, there's plenty to do for all the family throughout the area:

  • Circular walking routes on quiet footpaths & byways
  • Fishing on the Till and Tweed
  • Exhilarating road & mountain bike routes
  • 19th Century working corn mill and light railway and the many attractions on Ford & Etal estates
  • Iron Age & Bronze Age settlements
  • Hillforts and rock carvings
  • Gliding, Golf, Climbing, Tennis etc.
