The Experience

The peace is palpable on this wildlife-friendly farm: sheep graze in the field beyond, birds flit and sing, in spring the meadow is brimming with wild flowers. You have your own sheltered seating area in the garden by a tinkling stream – a delicious spot for an evening drink, an al fresco supper or simply to watch the stars come out in the unpolluted sky.

Inside the pretty Georgian farmhouse you’ll find the original black beams, a big Inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove, fresh flowers and beds with organic linen. Karen also leaves you a generous welcome pack with homemade bread, locally produced honey and Hunting Hall rare-breed pork sausages.

You’re a short hop from the coast for bracing walks on the coastal path and sandy beaches with wonderful dunes for summer picnics. Nearby are castles and gardens to visit and boat trips to the Farne Isles for puffin spotting.

Reviews

I've been trying to pay attention to what is so special about this place this week so I can take a little of the feeling home with me… All I can gather is that Northumberland has some kind of actual ancient magic seeping from the ground and Karen and Tom capture some of this magic in the perfect bubble of Hunting Hall. The only solution is to keep coming back for top up sips of the potion! As usual we can't thank you enough and can't wait until next time xxx

Lynda, Ripley

What to say to do Karen and Tom's place justice? It is a place of true tranquility and beauty. Who doesn't want to start their day waking up in a nest of feathered white linen, listen to birds singing, open the curtains to sun shining over wide countryside and watch a glistening peacock strut nonchalantly past? ... Karen had added really thoughtful extra touches...and Karen and Tom's overall kindnesses made our stay so special....I could go on and on, can't recommend enough: go and enjoy your own little piece of snug haven-ness

Amanda, Edinburgh

The perfect place for a ‘get away from it all’ ‘chill-out’ break – cottages extremely well equipped with loads of information about the area – great garden space to sit outside and enjoy the view or for children to run off steam – and an extremely warm welcome from Karen and Tom – not to mention Karen’s delicious home-made cake awaiting your arrival!

Location

The neighbourhood

You're on a working farm so surrounded by fields and grazing sheep. Wander the farm trail through woodland to a bird hide and a pond. Over 100 fruit trees have been planted in the orchard. The nearest village is Lowick - two miles away - with a pub, The Black Bull, and a few shops. You can walk there along a fenced bridleway through fields if you prefer not to take the car.

Local points of interest from Karen Burn

  • Our farm trail winds through beautiful countryside, past woodlands and wild areas rich with wildflowers, to a pond with bird hide and dipping platform. We’ve planted a community orchard of heritage fruit trees and rare breed sheep graze our organic meadows
  • Standing in a young wildflower-sown orchard, overlooking an organic sheep meadow stands our beautiful new shepherd’s hut. Revel in cosy luxury before the hobbit stove in the stillness of a star- studded evening and discover something magical!
  • Visit the island of Lindisfarne, once an important centre of English Christianity. In the stillness of evening voices of seals resting on sand banks drift across the water to the island. A castle rises out of the rock, once guarding the harbour entrance.
  • Northumberland’s beautiful sandy beaches are overlooked by spectacular castles. Enjoy an evening excursion to Bamburgh where the great castle illuminates the sparkling sand, whilst out at sea island lights glint and glimmer – an enchanting experience.
  • The wild Cheviot Hills offer breath-taking views of untamed moorland. Walks starting in beautiful valleys with tumbling clear streams, quickly rise onto bracken covered slopes grazed by native sheep. Pause by a sun-warmed wall and enjoy the wildness.
  • It’s a lovely walk to Cuthbert’s Cave where the monks carrying St Cuthbert’s remains are said to have rested beneath the rocky outcrop. Nestled in the shade of woodland along a track lined with daffodils, the cave offers peace and a place of wonder.

Introducing

Karen Burn

Tom and Karen place the preservation of their beautiful environment at the heart of what they do. They raise organic sheep and rare breed pigs on their farm and are determined to make everything run in as eco-friendly a way as possible, as well as giving a little back to the community: they’ve made a heritage orchard for the local village and worked with community groups on all sorts of green projects. Tom’s the third generation to live at Hunting Hall and Karen holidayed here as a child, so they’ve got lots of good tips about where to go and what to see.
