Turf Farm – A Holiday In Timeless England

The Turf Farm Camden is a farm on a hilltop in the middle of a village called Camden-upon-Tweed, in Northumberland. The owner, Mr John Smith, buys the land from a local land owner for timber and to build a fence on it. He also intends to raise cattle on the land and sell them locally but unfortunately for many years no one can get to him – it’s always been a problem getting horses over the hilltop to the market.

He also intends to raise animals for trade and to be self-employed in the summer months. He bought the place in 1977 but had to wait for the right time because it was built close to the sea. Now that he has the timber built, it’s a great place to visit with the family and also if you’re interested in what else has been going on in the area, you’ll be able to find out by reading the weekly magazine New Matrimony.

You can enjoy all sorts of events in the area like the Camford Trout Festival every August when the trout are attracted to the farm thanks to a stream flowing through the center of the Taffy Farm. There’s also a charity garden every Tuesday called the Garden on the Farmhouse, where you can enjoy an organic garden and learn about the different types of produce that are grown on the site. If you love hiking, you could hire a bike and try the Trans-Hollywood Trail which starts in Tweedcross, crosses Camden and then heads back to Tweedtown and the Great Orme where the cinema is.
