Let’s stay off the beaten track. Time to get out of the city, refresh and reconnect with nature – without having to say goodbye to home comforts.
Glamping in Northumberland with Middlemoor Farm Holidays combines the benefits of enjoying the great outdoors, with more comfort than camping and in a quirky accommodation too!
Our two narrowboats; Miss Ellie and Moonraker are located in their own private fields on our working farm and offer a one-of-a-kind glamping experience in Northumberland. On the farm we grow cereals, make silage, keep sheep, cattle and pigs as well as being home to 14 wind turbines. As farmers, we’re early risers but not to worry, as most of the action happens in the farm steading half a mile away so any farmyard noise should be to a minimum.
Both narrowboats have woodfired hot tubs, which you can hire separately with your booking, and both are provided with fire pits, brick BBQ’s (your own charcoal is required) and outdoor seating, so you can make the most out of beautiful sunrises, sunsets and stargazing thanks to the amazing Northumberland dark skies! If the weather takes a turn for the worse, there is plenty of seating in the comfort of the narrowboat so you can stay dry and cosy while still enjoying the views.
Upon arrival, we provide you with marshmallows to toast around the firepit, as well as a firepit starter kit, biscuits from the The Northumbria Bakehouse, tea, coffee and sugar. You will also find a fridge, cooker, kettle and toaster along with everything you need to prep and cook a lovely meal during your stay. Fluffy white towels and bedding are also provided, and the electric heaters will be switched on in advance so the boats are cosy for your arrival. Wifi is also available in both boats.
Guests are welcome to explore the farm on foot or on pushbikes, but we request that you please stick to the roads and do not disturb the crops, cattle and sheep. There is a gravel road which leads to the top of the hill, where we recommend taking a picnic as it’s a lovely spot for enjoying the stunning views out to the Northumberland Coast and over to The Cheviots
