About the owners

Gemma & Tim

Listed since March 2009

Having met in the south of England we moved to Northumberland in 2003 to start our family and convert the derelict farm at Burnfoot into what it is today. Our three daughters have grown up enjoying the nature and space in this beautiful part of the world.

Owner recommendations

  • If you love wild swimming, grab your cossie and head to Upper Coquet river for a series of linked pools at one of England's cleanest rivers.

  • When in Northumberland, the Holy Island of Lindisfarne is a must - remember to check the causeway crossing times before you set off.

  • Local hidden gem, Sugar Sands beach, is an unspoilt and sheltered beauty that is well worth the trek to its golden shores.

  • The Coquet is home to some of the best salmon and trout fishing areas in the country if you’re up for a spot of fly fishing.

  • The Alnwick Garden is a feast for the eyes and great fun for the kids too, just half an hour’s drive away.
