Although many places around Ford & Etal are closed for winter there are still things to do! There are numerous beautiful walks to enjoy in and around the Estates and Flodden Battlefield is nearby. Make time to relax over a drink and treat yourself to some delicious local food: The Black Bull and The Lavender Tearooms in Etal, The Old Dairy and Ford Village Shop in Ford, The Red Lion and Café Maelmin in Milfield, and The Blue Bell at Crookham are all open. Please check our website for individual opening times. If you want to do some shopping why not pop into Handmade at Heatherslaw to see John Speight's Papercut Art and Spirit of Colour Jewellery, or visit The Old Dairy to explore an eclectic selection of antiques and vintage items. Heatherslaw Mill is open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10am to 1pm, wrap up warm if you plan to visit.
