We have owned Ravenscleugh since 2012.
We farm the 260 acres and have rare breed Luing cattle and Lleyn and Cheviot sheep.
We actively encourage wildlife on the farm and have a new wildflower meadow which we have created to help attract butterflies and bees.
We have Hugo and Molly; our horses plus Lucky who is our son's shetland pony. We also have 2 dogs; Isa the lurcher who lives in the house and Pip the working sheep dog who lives outside.
We are delighted to welcome you to our home and hope that you will enjoy our beautiful county as much as we do.
History of Ravenscleugh
Lying on the Anglo-Scottish border, Northumberland has been the site of a number of battles. Ravenscleugh was the site of the camp for the English prior to the Battle Of Otterburn.
Nearby Elsdon Church is a really interesting visit as well.
The present farm house is 17th century however the farm has medieval and roman sites including forts and castles.
The following links indicate that Capability Brown was born in the house.
Lambing and Calving in the Spring,
Haymaking and Shearing sheep in the summer.... the farm is always busy and bustling.
We would be delighted to show you around the farm and introduce you to some of the characters here at Ravenscleugh - just ask.
Wildlife at Ravenscleugh
Listen to curlews and tread quietly to see the otters that feed in the lakes. Sea trout travel up through the burns in the Autumn and Winter - you never know what you might see.
We have toads and frogs galore in the spring and tiny froglets soon after.
Sit and enjoy the view under the singing skylarks during the day or sit quietly by the pond at night to catch a glimpse of an otter.

The ideal choice for wedding guest accommodation.
Less than 3 miles from Le Petit Chateau and Wood Hill Hall wedding venues.
Great place to stay. Hosts were incredible—they couldn’t do enough for us. The area was beautiful and having the bnb as a base camp was brilliant. Thank you so much.
We had a lovely stay at Georgie’s. I decided to bring my 4 year old and 8 month old on a last minute trip and despite us booking the same morning as we arrived Georgie and Simon were very welcoming. They were amazing in making the visit memorable to my 4 year old who had a great time playing with their son. The farm is beautiful, very clean house, high standard room and great breakfast.
Really warm and welcoming family and a lovely home too!
We enjoyed our one night stay at Georgie's place. Our room was spacious, warm and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. We slept really well. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and offered some handy tips on local places to go for an evening meal. The house is set amongst beautiful rolling countryside so it's perfect for anyone looking for a peaceful rural escape.
A brilliant B&B in a very interesting area of the country, lovely hosts and and a great location (on a farm!). Would definitely recommend
A short but warm stay with a beautiful family. Their kindness was unparalleled! Thanks again for letting us stay in your wonderful home.
Georgie and Simon are lovely hosts, offering information and help whenever required. Their farm is set in beautiful surroundings which is very tranquil and refreshing. A lovely option for a weekend away out of the city.
Really lovely and friendly family farmhouse. Large comfortable room in peaceful surroundings. Wish I had more time to stay and explore.
We had a lovely, last minute night away at the farm and Simon and Georgie were very helpful with suggestions about where to go and good places to eat etc. We even had delicious home made macaroons! A very nice stay. Thank you.
