Bernicia Creative Christmas Fair

Overview

A range of local food and craft stalls. Stalls will be in our indoor marquee. Bring your children along. Kirkharle Courtyard has a small play area , lakeside walk as well as the resident courtyard shops. Kirkharle Lake and Courtyard is a truly unique visitor experience set in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside, only thirty minutes from Newcastle upon Tyne, Hexham, Morpeth and Alnwick. ​ Kirkharle was the birthplace of Lancelot Capability Brown, the landscape artist once described as the Shakespeare of Gardening, who lived on the estate until he was 23. The inspirational vision of Capability Brown has recently been brought to life and you can now enjoy his birthplace yourself by taking the pleasant walk around the lake on the fully accessible footpath and you can find an exhibition about the man and his work within the courtyard. ​ Enjoy a great day out to explore the inspirational landscape, the artist and designers studios within the 18th century courtyard and take the opportunity to enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal or relaxing snack in a beautiful, rural setting. ​
