There are numerous attractions at Ford & Etal Estates, including Britain’s only Pre-Raphaelite painted schoolroom, a historic working corn mill, a rare-breed heavy horse centre, a working steam train, castles that were caught up in Border warfare, a historic battlefield and a friendly micro brewery complete with Tap Bar.
On top of all this there are great swathes of beautiful countryside to explore! The roads are peaceful for cycling, you can canoe on the River Till, there are beautiful bridleways for horse-riding and all manner of wildlife to spot. While here why not treat yourself to some local delicacies in a range of eateries, or sip a pint of local beer in Northumberland’s only thatched pub? Don’t miss the opportunity to shop for local crafts and tempting local produce.
