Dunsdale in the College Valley by Brian Cosgrove



Whether you stay, or visit for the day, there are over twelve thousand acres here to explore, from the top of Cheviot and the Border ridge to the ancient hill forts, or just picnic by one of the streams and enjoy the peace...


Have a break in one of our lovely holiday houses, a night or two in the hostel, or rent all the properties and party in the Cuddystone Hall.


College Valley is a part of the area designated as Europe's largest 'dark sky park'.


The College Valley (5000 ha) has about 800 ha of woodlands which contribute amenity, conservation, history and income from timber sales.  College Valley strives to improve the value of these woodlands and for this purpose has developed a 20 year plan.  A copy of the plan can be downloaded here.
