Reminiscent of the old clinker boats that coastal communities have used to store tools and nets, most notably on Northumberland’s own Lindisfarne Island, our glamping cabins are designed to resemble upturned fishing boats – but with all the home comforts that have created a beautiful all season living space. Our cabins are named after fields and fell-land on our farm, they are:
- Blackcleugh – this is the woodland and hayfield towards the Cart’s Bog
- Wheatley’s – The hayfield beyond the Cart’s Bog with the white cottage in the corner
- Humbleton – 100acre fell land beyond the mast up the hill
- The Wonneys – Land up the hill towards the chimney flue.
These cabins can sleep 4 adults with a fixed king-size double bed, complete with a proper comfortable mattress, and from July 1st 2018 there will be a bunk above the double bed that is suitable for children under 12 only, enabling a family of 5 to be accommodated. There is also a double sofa bed, king size with a luxury foam mattress. Dogs are allowed to stay in these cabins.
This is our cabin that does not allow dogs to stay at any time, so if you are an allergy sufferer this is the cabin for you.

Humbleton is our cabin that is designed to also be accessible to anyone with mobility needs.
It has a wheelchair accessible shower room with floor level shower tray, higher toilet seat and grab rails. We have designed the accommodation to ensure there are 1.5m turning circles in all the right places! The cabin sleeps 4 people in 2 fixed single beds – one of which has side access, and a king size double sofa bed. If you have older children who are unwilling to share a double bed, this may also be the cabin for you!
All the cabins can sleep up to four guests. It is planned that Blackcleugh, Wheatleys and The Wonneys will also have a child’s drop down bunk – these cabins will be available to sleep a family of 5 from July 1st 2018.
Outside the stable-style doorway, there is private decking leading onto a gravelled area where each cabin has a firepit and outdoor seating area. Wood and charcoal for the firepit are available at our fishing lodge and fire-packs containing wood, kindling and firelighters can also be purchased (or pre-ordered so they are ready for you on arrival at your cabin). All fuel burnt on our firepits must be purchased from the lodge. The firepits have a BBQ grill and cooking tripod attachment and we request that these are used for BBQ purposes – no private BBQs are to be brought onto the site.
On your firepit area there is a BBQ locker (the key for which is on the accommodation keyring). In here is all the equipment that you may require for BBQing – including our cooking tripod and bowl, grill lifters, fire gauntlet, tongs, ash bucket and trowel, sand (the firepit works best if a layer of sand is in the bottom), and BBQ cooking equipment. This locker is also used for log storage, and any pre-ordered packs are left in here for guests.
A foldaway table and chairs for dining are provided.
In all cabins we provide bird spotting and stargazing guides as well as a OS explorer maps of the area so you can make the most of the wildlife, stars and walking in the area.
From August 2018 onwards there will be secure storage for bicycles ( bring your own locks and using this facility is at your own risk). If you plan to arrive on a bike or on foot we will offer you the fully ‘Furnished’ cabin at the ‘Cabin only’ rate!
