Every winter, Mercury-nominated sisters Rachel and Becky Unthanks host six weekends of singing, eating and walking on the Northumberland coast. It’s unadulterated cold-weather bliss, surrounded by the striking beauty of the Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle and the Cheviot Hills. “You don’t have to be a singer, it’s more an exercise in friendship,” says Unthanks pianist Adrian McNally. The feelgood breaks take place in a bunkhouse reclaimed from a once-derelict farm building, 10 minutes’ walk from the village of Seahouses (known for its splendid smoked kippers). Stay on site, or in modern wigwams at nearby Springhill Farm.
Two-night weekends cost £255pp in the bunkhouse or £265 in a wigwam, and include all food and activities.
