Let the Romance begin……

5th February 2015 | Southlands Farm News | No Comments Yet

I have to say I am biased…Born and bred in Northumberland  I love this place with a pashion….The people, the breathtaking skies, wide open spaces, clean fresh air, country pubs and long lazy walks. Ok it gets cold but that’s an excuse to put the fire on ! Beautiful architecture, the honeyed hews of Northumbrian sandstone, fat hedges brimming with wildlife, catching a glimpse of a white tip of an owls wing at night, birdsong from my bedroom window,our very own rare breed Dexter steak, chips, a farm fresh fried egg and a glass of red….I could go on and on ….

BUT the point of all this was to say …. Why not steal yourself  away to this hidden Jem . For our Valentines Special we are offering a bottle of fizz and some chocolates for you and your loved one to share if you book a break here at Southlands Farm Cottages…..If you want we will even have the fire on ready for your arrival… you just have to ask…..So go on let the Romance begin……..
