Middlemoor Farm Holidays

Miss Ellie makes an exciting feature on BBC 2 Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes

Last year for Robson Green’s Weekend Escapes (Season 1) he and his wife Zoila enjoyed a stay in our Showman’s wagon Plover. We were thrilled when we found out that he would be returning for season 2, this time Robson and his two sisters Dawn and Joanna chose to stay on Miss Ellie, our quirky narrowboat!

In episode 10 of season 2, Robson takes his sisters on a weekend escape to Northumberland, where they experience many of the exciting activities that our county has to offer. These include snorkelling off the coast of Beadnell, taking a boat trip to the Farne Islands to spot the puffins and exploring Howick Hall and its stunning gardens.

Upon arriving at our farm, Robson commented that he hoped Dawn and Joanna would have a glamping experience ‘they’ll never forget’ – which from their reactions is exactly what they had!

Whilst enjoying their morning coffee on Miss Ellie, Robson reminisced on their childhood and likened the stay to caravan holidays they enjoyed as children. We were also delighted to hear that Joanna found our lovingly restored narrowboat to be quirky and that it exceeded her expectations.

We loved how this episode highlighted so many exciting and unusual things to do in Northumberland – all just a short drive from Middlemoor Farm.

Catch the episode on BBC 2 on Friday 12th January at 6:30 pm or stream the episode now by heading over to BBC iPlayer (S2 E10).
