The farm is situated right on the Roman Wall Walking route. Local sites include various Mile Castles [Our farm hosts the tallest bit of the wall still standing.], Birdoswald Fort [3miles], Lanercost Priory and tea rooms [3/4 mile]. We have two woodlands[One ancient. One not] both with rivers. We have 2 rods in the river Irthing [1/2 mile]. if you like fly fishing. The land next to the river Irthing is part of the remaining 3% of English wetland so there are otters, badgers and heron as well as trout in the river.
The lake district is an hour away.
