Thornton Farm is 5 miles south west from Berwick-upon-Tweed. It is an organic arable farm run by the Smales Family. Thornton is 50 miles from Edinburgh and 50 miles from Newcastle. It is a short drive from Norham Village with Norham Castle, a great pub and local shops.
We have space for securing your bikes so you can head out along some wonderful cycle routes. Cheswick Sands is 15 minutes by car and offers fabulous walks along some of the most deserted and beautiful coastline in Great Britain. We can offer guest passes to Paxton House where you can picnic by the River Tweed, visit the art gallery or walk along to the Chainbridge.
Guests are welcome to meet our miniature donkeys or help collect eggs. We like to leave you in peace and so everything is on offer, but never put upon guests. There are wonderful walks around the farm and guests love to bring their cameras for wildlife watching. For those with children we have a wonderful play park next to Skylark Cottage with wooden swings, see-saw, slide, climbing frame and willow playhouse. Perfect for little monkeys and den building.
