Take the A686 from Haydon Bridge or Penrith to Whitfield. In Whitfield take the Allendale turn at the Elks Head Pub, up a steep winding hill. The Burnlaw lane is 1 mile on the left with a sign at the gateway.
Burnlaw is part of a 45 acre organic stock farm overlooking the West Allen Valley in the North Pennines. It is a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in what has been described as England's last wilderness. Burnlaw began its life as an Elizabethan fortified farm house. It was then farmed by a Quaker family for 300 years and used as a place for Quaker Sunday meetings. It continues as a place of peace and tranquility today.
Visitors are welcome to explore the farm and the various walks in the surrounding valleys. Burnlaw is within easy reach of the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall, an ancient barrier built in AD 112 to mark the edge of the Roman Empire and separate it from the land of the Picts. Newcastle, Durham and the unspoilt Northumbrian coast are about an hours drive away.
