Tips from a local
Walk up Ros Hill for a stunning 360 degree view of Northumberland countryside and coastline, and see if you can spot all 7 castles! Situated on the wild Northumberland Moors, just 3 1/2 miles from Chatton, around an 8 minute drive from The Hayloft, Ros Hill has a great rural atmosphere, and at the right time of year is covered in beautiful vibrant purple heather.
Tips from a local
Try your hand at Clay Pigeon Shooting!
Visit nearby Fowberry Moor Sporting Ground to try clay pigeon shooting. Just over 2 miles from The Hayloft at Chatton, this is the ideal place to embrace the beautiful countryside and test your aim!
(they also do wine tasting too if you prefer something a little more relaxed)
Tips from a local
Explore Chillingham Castle and Walled Garden. The impressively preserved 12th Century castle is full of history, and the friendly room guides make your visit extra special with tales to tell about every room if you wish them to. The castle has a pretty grizzly past, so if you’re feeling brave enough, why not try one of the night time ghost tours to experience the castle and grounds after dark!
Tips from a local
The Supper Club at The Old Dairy
Take a trip to the historic villages on the Ford and Etal estate. In Ford, you will find The Old Dairy, a quirky antique shop and cafe by day and interesting supper club by night – or should we say once a month. This gorgeous place hosts a supper club once a month during the week where a well-known chef cooks there for 1 night only. Often from Newcastle, the chef will prepare a 6 course meal for their diners to enjoy. It’s certainly an interesting night and one we would highly recommend. It’s difficult to get booked in, so if you can’t make it on an evening we would still say it’s worth going during the day. Top tip – try their homemade cheese scones baked in the AGA – heaven!
Tips from a local
Dine at the very highly rated Percy Arms Pub and Restaurant in Chatton, just a few minutes’ walk around the corner from the cottage . The Percy Arms is a traditional, cosy pub, with a fantastic menu made up of locally sourced ingredients.
