Rewild your week on a Wild Intrigue Bats & Pizza Night, hosted at the tranquil, rural glamping site Wild Northumbrian. This beautiful spot is set in the heart of Northumberland National Park on the edge of Kielder Forest, beneath the enchanting celestial blanket of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park.
Upon arriving at the Swallow Hut you will be greeted by your Wild Intrigue guides, who will escort you to your al fresco dining table for the night. Once you’ve grabbed your first bottomless hot or cold drink of the night, your Wild Intrigue Guide will show you how to make your own stone-baked pizza, with delicious pre-made dough. Which toppings will you choose?
Plates emptied, you will embark on a guided exploration of the crepuscular wildlife on site emerging with the setting sun. Perhaps you’ll hear Tawny Owls calling, Roe Deer barking, or the Blackbird’s bedtime melody.
A cosy campfire will be waiting back at the Swallow Hut ready to toast marshmallows, with a hot chocolate of course. As the sun dips, you will set off on a Bat Safari to track down bats emerging from their roosts on the hunt for breakfast. With bat detectors in hand you will track down these elusive creatures of the night, picking up their echolocation on route. Through intriguing insights, fascinating facts and some (unashamedly) enthusiastic impressions from your Wild Intrigue guides, you’ll discover just how intriguing these much-misunderstood creatures of the night are.
Our Adult Nights are intended for adult groups and those with children aged 14+ to enjoy a chilled, wild night out. If you have young children, check out our Family Bats & Pizza Nights, for a night tailored to suit you and your little wild ones!
