Roses Bower Farm Northumberland
Run by Susan and Lewis Watson and Claire and William Watson-Laney, Roses Bower is a working sheep farm set within 230 acres of upland pasture in the Northumberland National Park, close to the forestry village of Stonehaugh. The beautiful Warksburn meanders along the Southern border of the farm and the ancient woodland along its banks provides a haven for a rich diversity of flora and fauna. The spectacular Roaring Hole Waterfall is located directly below the farm steading and the pool below provides the more adventurous with an opportunity to swim. The pool is the final destination for sea trout running up the Warksburn from the North Tyne. The Farm is located five miles from the village of Wark along the minor road towards the village of Stonehaugh. Except for the occasional logger truck leading timber out of the Kielder Forest, the road is little used. Peace and tranquillity reign, complimented by the most magnificent views over North Tynedale and spectacular night skies devoid of light pollution. The Northumberland National Park boasts a population of a little over one thousand , a fraction of the population residing in Roman times. It is truly England’s last wilderness and a perfect holiday location. Roses Bower offers one self-catering holiday home available throughout the year. VisitBritain 4Star accredited, equipped and maintained to a very high standard. The Lodge is a cosy two bedroom unit, newly renovated and in April2010. Well behaved pets are always welcome by arrangement. Moreover the farm has excellent stabling facilities, a professional arena and a two mile farm ride (dry summer use only) so guests can bring their own horse or pony by special arrangement. The Lodge is normally let Saturday to Saturday, arrival after 3.00pm. departure 10.00am. Depending on bookings and the time of the year short breaks (two nights minimum) can be arranged.
