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 private Swallow Hut you will be greeted by Wild Intrigue, who will escort you to your al fresco dining table for the evening. Don’t let anyone tell you that nights in nature can’t be a tad fancy. 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 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. You will be handed a bat detector to help you 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 misinterpreted creatures of the night are.

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