General

  • Glamping in luxury canal boats on a hillside at a working farm
  • A 10-minute drive from Alnwick Castle and 15 from the coast
  • Each unit includes a kitchen, bathroom with shower and outside decking

If you’ve always wanted to try canal boat life but you’re not too sure about the on-water aspect, Middlemoor Farm Holidays has a nifty solution…

The folk here have restored a couple of narrowboats, keeping their original features where possible while transforming them into comfy glamping accommodation. They’re set in the corner of a field on this working farm in Northumberland with smashing views out to sea and the Cheviot Hills.

Sheep, cattle and pigs are your main neighbours during a stay here and there’s more than 10 miles’ worth of private road to stroll in the surrounds. But while the park has a country feel, it’s hardly in the middle of nowhere: Alnwick is a 10-minute drive and the coast is 15 minutes away.

Sunbathe by the sea or back on site – each boat has a decked area furnished with seating for soaking up the rays (as well as the gorgeous views). A firepit with a starter pack of logs is provided to keep you toasty in the evenings and barbecues are permitted as well.

Inside, the barges have electricity, electric heating, hot water and TVs – so forgoing the home comforts won’t be necessary – and essentials like towels, bed linen and kitchen utensils are all included to help you travel light.

Rustling up meals is a breeze, courtesy of a kitchen kitted out with an electric cooker, fridge with a freezer box, a microwave, toaster and kettle, and the bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet.

This was our second trip to Miss Ellie and it …07/05/2021

    This was our second trip to Miss Ellie and it did not disappoint! We always end up planning our next visit before we've even left :)
    The location is well sign-posted and very easy to find and travel to - plenty of parking available. The boat itself if kitted out with anything and everything you could possibly need - this is no exaggeration. With good weather the BBQ is great but after a pretty wet weekend we were thankful to have the oven!
    The bed's are super comfy - even the 2 small beds (bunks) are great although they are small - we are thankful for having short friends. Plenty of storage space throughout also!
    We can't fault Miss Ellie and absolutely love it - it's great value for money and the owners are super helpful if you need anything.

    No dislikes to mention but more of a advisory so people know what to expect - it is narrow so be prepared to be up, close and personal with everyone throughout your stay - lots of co-ordinated movements - It is a narrow boat and everything is smaller and cosy!

    Quirky accommodation, excellent location, great views with sea in distance, very well equipped, short drive to many places of interest (Craster, Dunstanburgh castle, Alnwick, Seahouses, and more). Our daughter loved the narrow boat bunk bed and the lambs for neighbours.

A quirky, clean and comfortable place to stay.10/05/2020

    The accommodation was quirky, very clean, comfortable and warm. Miss Ellie is located in the corner of a field, offering a great view towards the coast. The accommodation is within very easy access of the A1 and was well equipped with all of the home comforts. We managed to light the fire on the Friday night so we did a little bit of story time with roasted marshmallows. The tea, coffee, biscuits, milk and marshmallows were a nice surprise. We never met the owner due to COVID but she was always on the end of the phone if we needed anything. Will definitely stay here again.

Local attractions

Alnwick is your nearest point of interest while staying at this site. Set off for the market town (10 minutes’ drive) to mosey around the medieval castle, then drop into the gardens to peer at the collection of poisonous plants before having a cuppa in the treehouse café.

Browse the shelves of the popular second-hand bookshop in town to pick up a tome to take back for a read on your decking, following up a spot of shopping with visits to Bamburgh and Chillingham castles (both 20 minutes).

Switch things up a touch with a trip to a stately home – Cragside (half an hour) is a Victorian country house with gorgeous gardens and woodland to wander. Saunter around Seahouses (20 minutes) next, a sweet village with a harbour, then glide along on a boat trip to the Farne Islands.

In the right season, you’ll see sea birds, seals and dolphins enroute. Pick a tour that drops you off at Lindisfarne (Holy Island) for jaunts to the Priory Museum, St Aidan’s Winery and Lindisfarne Castle.
