This week saw the arrival of the first calf of the year, born in the shed. NOW TAKING BOOKINGS from 12th April onwards for 1 bubble, and from 17th May for groups. At Ilderton Dod Barns we have 35 beef cows and along with their calves, they graze our hills from May to December.
Our working hill farm in North Northumberland and The Barn sleeps up to 9 plus 3 dogs and Cuckoo Cottage sleeps up to 3 plus 2 dogs. Both have plenty of availability. 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. We have plenty of availability as soon as we’re allowed to open (currently looking like 12th April), for 1 social bubble.Find out more about Ilderton Dod Barns
