The Farm

New owners Sam and Taz purchased the property in March 2020, it is no longer a working farm but they do still keep Chickens, Ducks and Geese. Since the purchase we have been busy planting nearly 7000 trees, introduced a wood-fired hot tub and infrared sauna into the orchard. Over the next few years there are many exciting new project, check back here for more updates.

At Elishaw enjoy magnificent views of the countryside and wildlife. Additional to your holiday cottage and private gardens, you will also have access to 12 acres of grounds with private stretch of the River Rede. Northumberland Holiday Cottages.

Our private stretch of river is ideal for picnics, fishing or enjoying a fire-pit campfire. Laze by the water, toasting marshmallows, whilst keeping warm by the fire. It is a perfect spot to enjoy the great outdoors both day and night. Perfect for star gazing, northumberland dark sky park. Free fishing for salmon and trout.
