Due to the ongoing Covid19 situation our cottages are currently closed, however we are taking bookings for the 2021 season.

For your peace of mind we will be delaying taking finally payments until nearer the start of all holidays so that we can hopefully confirm that you can stay before you make your final payment.

Covid-19 Cancellation policy -  Should the holiday need to be cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions in our area preventing you from staying, Covid-19 restrictions in your area preventing you from travelling or a positive Covid-19 case within your party which require you to isolate or you are isolating due to being around someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 then alternative dates will be offered or a refund depending on circumstances.

In preparation to re-open we have been extremely busy behind the scenes putting measures in place to keep ourselves and our guests safe.  Some of the measures are included below:

  • We have carried out Covid19 health and safety checks and risk assessments on all our properties and put safeguards in place.

  • We have put together extensive cleaning checklists and will be deep cleaning before and after all guests.

  • We have put in place contactless check in and payment systems.

  • We have followed the government guidance to take out all toys, books, ornaments, Dvd's, cushions and throws.

  • We have put our holiday cottage welcome information online under the Covid19 page on this website

  • We will be asking all guests to strip the beds in our cottages when they leave and put the bedding and towels in the sealable bags provided which I will then leave for 72 hours before I wash it on a hot wash.

  • We will be providing hand sanitiser at the entrance to all our cottages.

  • We do ask that all guests consider bringing their own additional hand sanitiser, wipes and accessories to help us reduce the risk for everyone.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Eco Friendly and Pet friendly Self Catering and Camping Holidays


Our two Eco Friendly and Pet Friendly Northumbrian Holiday Cottages are idyllically located.

The Greenhouse and Greenleaf are situated in the Centre of the Historic Coastal Village of Bamburgh on the North Northumberland Coast.

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.

On arrival you will find your holiday cottage 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.

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 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.

Tranwell Farm Caravan & Camping Site

We have been granted permission from the camping and caravan club to operate a small certified touring caravan and camping site on our farm. If you're looking for a simple off-grid country retreat, in the heart of Northumberland, to enjoy a well-earned break with a clear view of the night sky, then we've got a pitch for you.  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.  Tranwell Farm Caravan & Camping Site
