Ford & Etal is one of rural Northumberland’s best kept secrets.

Home to the Joicey family for over 100 years, this  working estate has fascinating heritage attractions, beautiful countryside to explore, tempting places to eat, drink and shop and a welcoming range of accommodation.

The Estates lie in the valley of the River Till, just a few miles inland from Holy Island and Bamburgh. Close to the Scottish border this green and pleasant land is dotted with castles and battlefields, highlighting long centuries of conflict. Today it is farmed and managed much as it has always been and life is still ruled by the seasons.

Ride a steam train, stroke a heavy horse, learn how the power of water is harnessed to produce flour, or discover a Victorian schoolroom with walls covered in huge Pre-Raphaelite paintings. With a schedule events throughout the year, there’s always something new to see and do at Ford & Etal Estates.
