    Back in November 2021, north Northumberland was battered by Storm Arwen, the worst storm for 40 years. Like many places in the area, Chillingham suffered a huge loss of trees. Clearing them up, and the associated necessary tree felling, was never going to be a quick job but we did think we might be finished in two years, but no. […]

Our visitors dont seem to bother them one bit, with both parents busily swooping in and out with food for their chicks. Sadly, returning swallow numbers seem to have declined over the last few years so it is particularly […]

    Here at Chillingham, we do like to offer our visitors some quirky items in our new Pavilion. We have just added these rather nice children’s soaps to our range.

    The Chillingham Bulls do fight on a regular basis and there are historic accounts of them fighting to the death. In more recent times, quite a few deaths have been attributed to fighting due to the visible injuries, but no such event has been witnessed – until now. On the 7th April, the Park Manager was approaching two bulls at […]

    50 oak and 20 beech were planted in very fine metal guards to protect them from the Wild Cattle and the Fallow Deer. The guards are firmly staked but time will tell if the cattle favour them a scratching posts! The guards are not treated or painted so should rust gently into the landscape.
