When you arrive at our holiday cottages you will find them warm, with beds made up, welcome pack with a selection of Coffee & Tea, delicious biscuits, and Chain bridge Honey farm Honey, flowers on the table and a complimentary bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. We aspire to run our properties in as environmentally friendly manner as possible, we wash all the bedding in house using eco friendly washing power and our home is fitted with solar panels to run the washing machine then air dried.
Our Campsite is right here on our Farm just outside Morpeth and is ideal If you're looking for a simple family friendly off-grid campsite, in the heart of Northumberland, to enjoy a well-earned break with a clear view of the night sky. Fresh air, the gentle sound of bird song, idyllic countryside views, fields dotted by sheep, well spaced pitches with easy access along a well maintained private farm track. Toasting marshmallows over one of our fire pits and genuinely being able to switch off by going to sleep watching the stars. If you are up early enough you may also catch sight of some deer before a pleasant walk in the countryside or a days sightseeing visiting Hadrians wall or one of the many Castles and beaches of the Northumbrian Coast all within a short drive.
Sustainable tourism is something that we are passionate about, by choosing to 'staycation' you are already cutting your carbon footprint. In our cottages you will find reusable cleaning cloths, eco friendly cleaning products and refillable soap and washing up liquid dispensers. We provide recycling facilities so that guests can properly recycle their waste. We appreciate your help too by reducing the amount of waste you produce and bring to our properties to help us aspire to becoming zero waste. The only thing we are unable to recycle is glass as Northumberland County council do not provide a glass collection. Therefore we ask that if you do bring glass please take it away with you to the nearest glass recycling point. In Bamburgh that is in the main car park below the castle and for Ireby and the campsite on our farm the nearest point is the car park at 'The Sun Inn' on the way into Morpeth.
As well as running the family farm taking care of our flock of rare breed Ryeland Sheep my husband and I manage all aspects of running the cottages. We carry out most of the cleaning, take care of the bookings and maintenance ourselves. So we are always happy to help and you can be reassured of high standards of service and attention to detail.
So.....whether you’re looking to relax on a beach and build sand castles or are in search of a more active break, we are perfectly located for all desires. We’re close to many fantastic attractions and places to visit – from the Arts and Culture of Newcastle and the history of Hadrian’s Wall up to the Castles and Gardens of Alnwick, Bamburgh, Walkworth, Morpeth and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, to mention but a few.
