Experience a perfect family holiday in Northumberland at Northumberland Farm, situated just an hour’s drive from Newcastle. For generations, the Douglas family has nurtured this traditional farm, harmoniously grazing cattle and sheep on lush grasslands alongside an array of crops like wheat, barley, field beans, and even lucerne, also known as alfalfa. Nestled within England’s most rural county and less than a mile from the sea, the farm provides a breathtaking natural setting visible right from your tent.
Prepare to be captivated by the abundance of wildlife and the wonders of nature. From the comfort of your camping spot, you can observe hares, badgers, red deer, and an impressive variety of owls, including at least three different species. The air resonates with the melodies of yellowhammers, merlins, kestrels, curlews, geese, sandpipers, swans, and buntings. Alternatively, take a leisurely stroll to the nearby coastline and immerse yourself in some of the finest beaches in the entire country. Here, you might even catch a glimpse of seals, dolphins, and charming puffins.
Immerse yourself in the farm’s values and commitment to biodiversity through an engaging and welcoming farm tour. Discover the profound ethos that guides Northumberland Farm, where everything grown remains within the farm’s ecosystem, either nourishing the animals or finding its way onto your plate. Delight in the abundance of the farm’s honesty shop, brimming with local delicacies that boast minimal food miles.
Indulge in an array of delectable offerings, including kippers, smoked line-caught salmon, and succulent lamb and beef, all lovingly reared on the farm itself. As a unique feature among Feather Down Farms, Northumberland Farm even proudly stocks oysters.
You will be spoilt for choice with Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle close by. Seahouses harbour is pretty as a picture, and take a boat trip to Farne Islands, and enjoy fish and chips at the harbour, or there are many pubs offering great gastro options.
Your spacious canvas hideaway (nearly 500 square feet) generously houses up to six people. Here, you will be able to cook hearty meals from the comfort of your fully equipped kitchen, pop your feet up, and then relax and unwind under the ambient, warm candlelight. You will find a spacious double bed, a cosy cupboard bed, and a handy bunk bed, complete with a flushing toilet, and private hot shower, and views you could not believe.
