Storm Arwen took hold on Friday 26th November and we thought that historically it was important to record it. It blew from Friday at 4pm until Sunday with added snow and ice and freezing conditions. We were hosting a supper bookclub and half of the guests were unable to come out at all, and those that did had terrible trouble getting out from here because of the high winds ...

Well-loved Local Rothbury resident plants a dedication tree in April 2021.   Anthea Logan-Wood planted this Red oak tree on Sunday in the sunshine. She is a well known and loved Rothbury resident. As a child, she was evacuated to Cragend Farm during the Second World War, and her family stay is part of the history at Cragend Farm.  Her ties to Rothbury and Cragend Farm are stro ...

Tree Dedication: The Storer family have lived in the Coquet Valley for over 300 years, and to celebrate this Rob and Helen Storer decided to dedicate a tree to the family past and present as part of our Scots Pine Stand at Cragend Farm. The trees are positioned on a high point on Cragend Farm. The tree furthest east has been dedicated to William Storer and all his forebears. ...

The green oak beams in the kitchen that Shaun cut in 2013 have now been in situ for over 5 years and are really settling in well. We are really pleased with how they  have turned out.  It was a huge task, using 6 oak trees, which we cut ourselves. Our fantastic joiners on site helped us position them, and then Shaun polished them. They were cut from our plantation wood ...

Storm Ali brought several trees down on the farm. We have spent a great deal of time and effort clearing the wood, for use in our log burners, and have made this 2 seater seat near the River Coquet out of the trunk that snapped. ...

Snow in March The weather has been bad all over Britain this month and Northumberland had its fair share of snow. At Cragend Farm it is a chance to have some fun, once we have made sure the animals are all fed and watered. We managed to have 5 days of sledging and plenty of snowmen and snowballs. Our biomass log boiler worked well and kept us all toasty warm, and the Esse 990 ...

We have had a few days of snow this winter so far. The animals are managing to find food and stay safe. We are warm thanks to our log burners and there are some fantastic hills for sledging on. With sledging history in the Renwick family we like to take full advantage and go out and have fun in the snow if we can.  We wish the Team GB competitors in the Winter Olympics 2018 al ...
