Low Cornriggs is a traditional working hill farm west of Durham, parts of which date back over 200 years. It is registered with Natural England as a site of Special Scientific Interest {SSSI} for its rare fauna and flora. Being one of the ten best sites in the North of England with Natural England. We are also part of the Green Business Scheme with the environment and dedicated to cutting our carbon footprint.

Farm has been sympathetically restored over a period of nearly twenty years, seated on the edge of the beautiful village of Cowshill. Not quite off the beaten track the farm stands at around 1200’ high in the unspoilt meadows and upper moorlands of the North Pennines. This is and ideal base from which to enjoy walking, cycling and bird-watching. Enjoy the wide open spaces, rich in wild flowers in an area that is a Geo park based on the wealth of its minerals and their diversity. When you're ready to come indoors, Cornriggs Farm is well known for it's good food so why not sit down to a home cooked meal? All of these factors make for a highly relaxing and pleasurable visit.

Things to see and do in County Durham

Broom House Farm
Broom House Farm

The farm house is on the top of the hill, but the farmland itself rolls down the valley to the River Browney. Broom House is really a livestock farm - although some arable crops such as barley, oats, peas, turnips and broad beans are grown - with the aim of producing our own feed for the animals. We have a herd of beautiful Aberdeen Angus cattle, as well as a large flock of Lleyn sheep and a small herd of Saddleback pigs as well as a flock of laying hens. The aim is to breed all our own replacement animals on the farm, enabling us to improve the quality of our livestock through breeding.

Like Hadrian's Wall and the Angel of the North, it is an icon of north-east England, its image is instantly recognisable to people who love this part of Britain.
