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.
Calving Season is underway on our Northumbrian Farm

A wonderful experience for you and your family. At Ilderton Dod Barns we have 45 beef cows and along with their calves they graze our hills from May to December. Come and stay and share this magical rural world.
On our working hill farm in North Northumberland, The Barn sleeps up to 9 plus 3 dogs and Cuckoo Cottage sleeps up to 3 plus 2 dogs. Dogs allowed downstairs. 1800 acres of access land surrounding the property and not too far from the coast. During your stay, you cannot fail to see our 650 ewes spread across the farm but the cattle tend to keep their distance a bit more. You’re likely to see lambing, shearing, pregnancy scanning, hay making, bracken harvesting and working sheepdogs depending on when you choose to come.
Adventures, freedom and wilderness await you this Feb half term.
