There are miles of footpaths and bridleways in the area for you to explore as well as many National Trust properties and Hadrian's Wall.

We welcome dogs in all of the cottages except the Showman's Wagon. The local pub, which is a miles walk away across the fields also welcomes 4 legged friends. Dogs are welcome downstairs in the cottages but we do request that dogs are not left unaccompanied and are kept off the furniture.

Charles and Dee are happy to help organise activities while you stay at Southlands Farm Cottages; clay pigeon shooting, fishing on the Tyne and massages on site are just a few of the activities we can arrange during your stay. Dee and her daughter Rosie also run bespoke floristry courses for groups, the perfect activity for hen parties and big birthdays.
