Our story

Hello! We are Robert, Victoria, Ellie, Lizzie, Chloe, Madeleine and Phoebe and we are the founders of Wild Northumbrian and guardians of this beautiful piece of land.

Our family has lived in the valley for over 30 years and has loved the spirit, creativity and warmth of its people and the beauty of its wildness.

We wanted to share this place but in a special and respectful way, working with the landscape, wildlife and local community. We had a vision to create a very special place, for people to retreat from the fast pace of modern life, to grab their loved ones and families, switch off from the busyness and tune in to the wonderful, therapeutic benefits of spending time in nature, off grid and unplugged. Creating time to dream, laugh, wonder and just be. Time to gather and make precious moments and memories. We want everyone to be able to enjoy their stay, including our four legged family members as we are dog friendly throughout the whole site.

Wild Northumbrian shares the site with the already established Unison Colour Art Pastels, created by Robert’s parents John and Kate Hersey. The two companies work hand in hand to look after this natural heritage and help create and maintain something very special and unique.

The sound of the river, the butterflies and dragonflies and the complete serenity and calmness. Absolute BLISS.
