Adrian and Jane Levien moved to Ingram House
in the Northumberland National Park in 2003.
The Cheviot Hills, Alnwick Castle and Gardens,
Bamburgh Castle and beach, Holy Island and lovely
golf courses are just some of the attractions nearby.
There are wonderful walks in the hills and on the coast.
Ingram House was originally the farmhouse. It was built in the 18th century as a two up, two down traditional house and has been added to over the years.
We offer one double room, one twin room and one twin/double room - all ensuite. All bedrooms are traditionally furnished and comfortable, with a hospitality tray and flat-screen television. Breakfast is taken in the family dining room which is part of our large open-plan kitchen. Dinner can also be provided Food is sourced locally where possible.
The garden has been our major project. It was very overgrown and wild when we arrived and, although we are by no means finished, we hope we have restored some of what was here and added a few new bits. As with every garden this is an ongoing project with an ever moving 10 year plan., Our neighbours farm the surrounding land – mostly hill farming. There are lovely walks from our doorstep, mainly uphill, but the views when you get there are worth it!
The Breamish Valley has been populated for many centuries and evidence of Iron Age and Stone Age settlements can be seen around us. The National Park Visitor Centre is a five minute walk from us and has an informative museum showing archaeological finds and explaining what has gone on here over the years. The Church, St Michael and All Angels, is next to the Centre and well worth a visit. There are services every Sunday through the Summer and alternate Sundays in the Winter. Visitors are always welcome.
MEALS : Breakfast is served in the family kitchen/dining room. All food is locally sourced and fresh. Dinner is available on request.
