A super farm shop and café on the edge of a 500-acre family farm, where home-grown is the buzzword. “If we don’t produce it ourselves, we know somebody local who does,” says farmer Ian. The farm shop is well-stocked with Northumberland produce: from fresh bread to home-reared meat, jams, farmhouse cakes and cheeses. Pick up some spicy jalapeno sausages and minted lamb burgers for a delicious BBQ. A convenient click-and-collect service means you can order ahead and whip a bag of groceries away with you.
The coffee shop serves honest, home-cooked food – cooked breakfasts, pie of the day, fresh sandwiches, burgers, sponge puddings with ice cream and lunch boxes for kids. Grab a cup of Rington’s tea and a slice of cake, then take in the country views from the terrace. Children will enjoy the free play area, sandpit, ride-on tractors and visits to the animals – catch Ian at the right time and you might even be able to help him hunt for eggs.
