I loved it. A working farm full of character sited on NT land. My room and bathroom were huge and great for me and my 2 spaniels. There was large paddock available to exercise the dogs. The owners were quite inspiring and very helpful, giving me good advice on the area and directions. Breakfast was excellent catering for my preferences

We had the most amazing stay with Shaun and Lou in Rothbury. We highly recommend the farm for a stay in Northumberland. The breakfast was amazing, the location stunning and the hosts just lovely. They made our two children very welcome and they even got to feed the kid goat! Thank you so much.
Exceptional historical farm accommodation with welcoming hosts. Beautifully restored farm in rural location just around the corner from Cragside. Lovely extra large bed in huge bedroom. Great fresh breakfast. Fantastic hosts, Lou and Shaun who really could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Just sorry we weren't able to stay longer!B from Co.Durham Armstrong Wing
Northumberland offers so many challenges and delightful scenery for the cyclist and Cragend Farm is the perfect base. Lou and Shaun will be able to offer excellent local knowledge on routes of varying lengths as well as hearty breakfasts and secure cycle storage.R & S King, Oxon
I headed out on the first day to explore the Northumberland National Park and had the roads almost to myself (during the Easter holidays!!) Although slightly more undulating than my home in the Cotswolds, Northumberland packed in regular climbs without ever becoming too daunting. Shaun offered to show me the route of the Tour of Britain which would have been fun.
On day two, I made the most of the Cragside Estate's 6 mile carriage route and completed a few circuits of this. The Cragend Estate borders Lou and Shaun's Cragend Farm and it's great fun whizzing around the estate, passing the many lakes and varied scenery, climbing the hills steadily and whizzing down the far side and through the archway and over the cobbles of Cragside House and then passing the farm two or three times. The Cragside Loop is on Strava and I managed the 6 mile loop in just under 30 minutes. The record of 17 minutes 20 seconds will take some beating!!
On my third day, after a more informed chat with Shaun, I ventured into the Northumberland National Park again and completed a 30 mile loop with about 3000 feet of climbing. The scenery is stunning and the cycling options are so varied. The welcome at Cragend Farm is exceptional, a real treat for cyclists.
I'm already planning my next trip to Cragend Farm and either a ride to the coast or a quick dart into Scotland!!
