Everyone loves a Puffin!

Everyone loves a puffin!  Why not take a trip to the Farne Islands during your stay at Burradon Farm.

The Farne Islands lie just off the Northumberland coast midway between the fishing village of Seahouses and the magnificent Castle of Bamburgh.

A boat trip from Seahouses harbour is the only way to experience unrivalled views of amazing wildlife in its natural habitat.

The Islands are an incredibly important wildlife reserve home to many species including Puffin, Eider, Razorbill, Guillemot, Shag, and Kittiwake.

Throughout the year hundreds of grey seals can be seen basking on the rocks.  During the Autumn and Winter months the seal numbers swell to over 6,000.

If you are very lucky on your visit you might even spot dolphins, porpoise, minke whales or basking sharks!

Staple and Inner Farne islands are open to the public offering an amazing experience for visitors.  Enjoy close-up views of puffins, dive-bombing terns, a medieval chapel, Victorian lighthouse and an information centre.

Boat tours sail all year round and there are many options to choose from.  Sail arounds, whale watching, photography or landing trips to name a few.  You can find out all you need to know about the islands and booking a trip here or here

What are you waiting for?!  All you need are your sea legs and camera … and maybe a waterproof jacket!
