At Beacon Hill you are surrounded by acres of wonderful, dense beech woodland where you can often glimpse red squirrels, badgers, foxes, roe deer, and a huge variety of birds seldom seen elsewhere in the UK.  The place is a true haven for all who enjoy the English countryside and the great outdoors.

And Beacon Hill Farm even has its very own high tech, purpose-built, night sky observatory – for the exclusive use of guests – and complimentary .

A large area of Northumberland has been officially designated as the best place in Europe to see the stars due to its incredibly dark skies.  As Beacon Hill is set high on the edge of this area and its panoramic daytime views turn gradually to dense, black nights, it’s truly a star gazer’s paradise.

The Beacon Hill Observatory is located very close to the cottages down a well-lit path and has a sliding roof which leaves the starry night skies wide open above. Sky maps, simple instructions and information boards line the walls.

In addition, for super-active guests,  there are tennis courts, a football pitch, large trampoline, cricket nets and seasonal croquet lawn; a play barn providing slides, swings, climbing nets, tower and climbing wall, while an adjoining games room offers pool, table tennis, table football and air hockey – all free of charge.

Everything is designed to make time spent here totally perfect for all. You’ll never want to leave! And if you do, you’re likely to be booking up again as soon as you hit home.

Prices are very reasonable and cost from £425 per week for a cottage and from £120 per night (two nights minimum) for a Shepherds’ Hut.   For more information, go to
