Bats & Pizza Nights

Wild Northumbrian

A feast of food & nature in Northumberland

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, the fun begins as Wild Intrigue guide you into making 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.

Adult groups (or ages 14+ at parent’s discretion) should book onto Bats & Pizza Nights to enjoy a chilled, wild night out.

Families with children should book onto Family Bats & Pizza Nights, for a night tailored to suit you and your little wild ones!

Please note that we can only welcome adult-only groups onto “Bats & Pizza Nights” and not “Family Nights”. Our Family Nights receive a lot of demand due to little ones hoping to return, and we want to prevent disappointment.

There are heaps of wild encounters to enjoy in northern England, explore our full collection here.

Mini Exped

A relaxed evening of al fresco pizza making, marshmallow toasting and wildlife encounters in tranquil Northumberland.

You will be guided in making your own stone baked pizza before setting off around this small but beautiful site on a Bat Safari, and looking out for other crepuscular wildlife on route, such as Tawny Owls, Roe Deer and Red Foxes.


Wild Northumbrian is based near the small village of Greenhaugh, around a 10 minute drive from Bellingham, in a beautiful wild corner of the Northumberland National Park.

Bats take full advantage of the mosaic of habitats at Wild Northumbrian, hunting insects over the semi-ancient woodland, meadow, river and wild churchyard.

The address is: Wild Northumbrian Tipis and Yurts, Thorneyburn Old Rectory, Hexham, NE48 1NA

Full details on meeting your Wild Intrigue guides will be provided upon booking.
