The novel way to holiday

If you fancy something a little different to camping, get comfortable in one of Springhill's new wigwams. Staying in one of our wigwams is a fun and comfortable alternative to traditional camping holidays which all the family will enjoy.

Springhill has seven wigwams based on our caravan and camping site just over half a mile from the sea and a mile from the village of Seahouses. Each wigwam sleep up to five are fully insulated with electric heating meaning wigwams stay cosy all year round.

The history behind us getting wigwams

Wigwams or Boatsheds?

Although we call them wigwams, our distinctive wooden holiday homes are inspired by the upturned boat sheds at nearby Holy Island. The upturned boats on the Island were once part of the largest herring fleet to sail from the east coast of England. Once they became unseaworthy they were turned upside down and used as sheds instead.

Here at Springhill our family has roots in the herring and sea fishing industry as well as farming.

Our Uncle Charlie was a real local character who used to fish the waters off the coastline here. We've named one of our wigwams after him, as a mark of respect and appreciation for what he did and as a nod to Springhill's fishing heritage.
