Read on to find your handcrafted holiday ideas in the wild Northumberland countryside.
Cosy accommodation and open air activities make for a perfect mini-break. It’s up to you what kind of mini-break it’s going to be.
Perhaps you’re of the opinion that the few days away from it all should be spent watching out for the gorgeous birds. Northumberland is known as a birdwatchers paradise after all, the variety of landscape make it possible to spot all manner of birds. The rocky cliffs and sandy beaches aren’t just loved by the birds either… There’s plenty here for ramblers, cyclists, fell runners and photographers alike. Perhaps seeing the seals of the Farne Islands takes your fancy, or maybe you’d like to actually get in the water yourself! Plenty of adventure watersports take place in Northumberland. Kayaking and surfing are favourites of those who can’t sit still. Maybe you’d like to stay dry and delve into the history of the area instead. Or just try the local food and drink. It’s up to you, there is so much to choose from. Plan your activities for each day, safe in the knowledge that you’ve got a cosy bed to curl up in afterwards. Surrounded by acres and acres of farmland, without neighbours or light pollution you are guaranteed a good night’s sleep.

Every season brings different wildlife
August 1st 2020
Perhaps it’s due to the great weather that we’re having, or the lack of disturbance due to lockdown this spring but we seem to be seeing a huge number and variety of wildlife species on our doorstep.
Curlews, deer, partridges, pheasants, hares, owls, cuckoos and red squirrels have always been a common sight on our 1800 acre hill farm. But this year there have been sightings of kingfishers and otters on a nearby lake. You don’t have to look hard to see many of these species, but we provide binoculars in our properties for you to get a closer look.
