Spring in Northumberland, lambs

Half Term Family Fun at whitehouse farm

The lambing season is well and truly in full swing during May.  Imagine the squeals of delight as your children get to bottle feed these adorable cuties at Whitehouse Farm.  Located just south of Morpeth, Whitehouse Farm offers visitors the opportunity to interact and feed lots of animals.  From late February to early June there are daily slots to feed the spring lambs.  In addition to this seasonal treat, there’s plenty of activities for all the family including tractor rides, soft play, outdoor slides and numerous outdoor play areas.  For more information about these activities click on the link below which will take you directly to Whitehouse Farm website.

Romantic retreat for two

Step into the magical surroundings at the world-famous Alnwick Garden. During April / May, over 300 Taihaku cherry trees create what feels like a stunning tunnel of white blossoms, perfect for a romantic stroll hand-in-hand. Explore the diverse gardens, lose yourselves in the beauty of nature, and create a truly unforgettable experience.

The starry sky

A starry spectacle

Escape the light pollution and witness the awe-inspiring beauty of the Northumberland night sky. Renowned as an International Dark Sky Park, the region offers fantastic stargazing opportunities. Lay out a blanket, cuddle up under the vast expanse of stars, and reconnect with nature’s wonder.  For a beginners guide to stargazing, click on the link below for Northumberland National Park’s beginners guide.  Star gazing is an all year round event but May is a great month as the sun sets a little earlier than at the height of summer with the nights often still being clear and crisp.
