Our Family run farm is set  on the outskirts of Morpeth in the heart of Northumberland

As well as farming we have 

  • An equestrian livery yard

  • A camping and glamping site "Tranwell Farm Campsite"

  • A very small Adults only Caravan site "The paddock @ Tranwell Equestrian"

Self Catering - We have three self catering options each sleeping up to 4 guests. 

  • Ireby House a lovely very spacious stone farm cottage in a quiet cul-de-sac on the farm 

  • Oak Lodge - an eco friendly timber lodge set in the woods beside Tranwell Farm Campsite

  • Ash Lodge - a second eco friendly timber lodge set in the woods beside Tranwell Farm Campsite


Tranwell Farm Campsite is right here on our Farm just outside Morpeth and is ideal If you're looking for a small 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.


The paddock @ Tranwell Equestrian is a very small adults only site with 4 grass pitches in a paddock on our equestrian livery yard.  It benefits from the use of a purpose made disabled friendly shower block with an accessible wet room shower room and two accessible toilets.  There is also a kitchen facility with fridge, kettle and microwave. 

Sustainable tourism is something that we are passionate about, by choosing to 'staycation' you are already cutting your carbon footprint.  In our properties you will find solar panels to provide all or most of the electric, 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 which is in 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 business. 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.

'We look forward to welcoming you'
