Tindalls of Broomhouse, Chatton, Northumberland


Now a Grade II listed property, Broomhouse lies about a mile west of Chatton Village, the farm comprising 300 acres of arable and grassland leading down towards the banks of the river Till.

For more than seven centuries the Tindall family, yeoman farmers on the domains of the Percys, Dukes of Northumberland, have lived and worked on this land.

Chatton Village

Lying 19 miles from the town of Alnwick and 24 miles from Berwick Upon Tweed, Chatton is a  small village, lying close to the Cheviot Hills, and is located in a valley on the river Till.....

 .......with an old and renowned pub, The Percy Arms........

.......and a church - Holy Cross -  where generations of Tindalls have been baptised, married and buried.
