Tucked away in a remote part of the county is the most well-cared for farm with the friendliest owners. You’ll also meet rare-breed pigs, donkeys, geese, peacocks and hens. There are acres of farmland, beautifully traditional, as well as farm trails, an orchard, and a shepherd’s hut in the meadow for extra guests.
Inside you’ll find a roaring fire, fresh flowers from the garden, window seats in deep stone walls, cosy feather duvets and organic cotton sheets, plus Karen’s delicious cake on arrival.
Wide views look out over green countryside. Holy Island, Bamburgh and the Farne Isles are wonderfully close and coastal paths along cliffs and beaches will tempt walkers. The cottage overlooks a glorious country garden with a small gate to a meadow and a stream. No light pollution means if the skies are clear you’ll see plenty of stars at night.
