National Park Experiences – The Ingram Valley Farm Safari

Discover a world of adventure onboard our special Ingram Valley Farm Safari Traxter off-road vehicles and travel back through time on this epic journey. Your immersion into the past 12,000 years starts here where the glaciers of the last ice age melted away to reveal a beautiful tundra landscape with deer and wild cattle. In recent times red deer have been re-introduced to the farm and the cattle once again graze the hilltops. Immerse yourself into 6,000 years of farming history as we take you chapter by chapter through myth, legend and the history of England’s largest scheduled ancient monument at Ingram Valley Farm.


Duration: 3 hours

Please meet at the Ingram Bridge Car Park. The Safari starts here with your experienced tour guide Patrick from Footsteps in Northumberland joined by a member of the Wilson family, whose family has been farming here since 1949.

Welcome aboard the Ingram Valley Farm Safari Traxter so that you can discover what has shaped this beautiful valley for over a millennia and beyond. Along the way, we will share with you the stories about how the deer, sheep and cattle, still play a key role in conserving and managing this special place in the 21st Century.

To ensure that you are well fed, the Safari pauses up on the hill for a picnic, or perhaps in Ingram Village Hall if the weather is less than inviting. Your picnic is supplied by The Ingram Cafe and it’s all locally sourced ingredients, freshly made for you. (Please let us know in advance of any dietary requirements)

Please contact the team at Ingram Valley Farm if you have particular access needs. It is our aim to make the Safari as accessible as possible to all our visitors, so that everyone who can, gets to participate in and enjoy this National Park Experience. Please note, The Ingram Cafe has wheelchair access.

The mission of the Experience Team is to make sure that you are looked after at every stage of the journey during your Ingram Valley Farm National Park Experience. Round off the day at Ingram Cafe looking at the beautiful National Park Exhibition to relive the spellbinding journey through time in your quest to discover even more about this fascinating part of the world.

“We booked the safari as a treat for ourselves, celebrating a special occasion. Patrick and Rebecca made our whole tour the highlight of our holiday. We didn’t expect a safari in Northumberland to be as exciting. We had fabulous views, beautiful wild flowers, birds and animals a plenty and a wonderful picnic lunch at 1,000ft. It was lovely getting so close to the deer too. Highly recommended.”
