Ravenscleugh


Ravenscleugh is a farm in Northumberland, located about 3 miles south-east of Otterburn and just over 1 mile south of the village of Elsdon. Ravenscleugh is situated by Raylees Burn. It is just off the A696 road, about ½ mile east of the hamlet of Raylees. Ravens Cleugh is said to be the site of a Roman period farmstead, but it's exact site is unclear.[1] The current farm house here dates from the 17th century. It was once occupied by the family of the famous landscape artist, Capability Brown, who was possibly born here.[2] Today, the farm provides bed and breakfast, camping and other services.
