Our Heartfelt Journey
After moving to Northumberland from the Eden Valley in Cumbria, we founded Laverock Law Cottages and Glamping in 2011. Initially renovating the three self-catering holiday cottages we then went on to develop the Harvest Hut and the North Star treehouse, creating a multi award-winning business.
Once established we decided that we would start to invest time and energy into developing our own skills and following our own passions and interests. Having already run a few very simple courses here at Laverock we noticed that many of our guests were really connecting to nature during their stay. We loved sharing our time and knowledge with them and so decided that we would evolve this passion into a new business.
In 2019 Harvest started an exciting journey, training to become a yoga teacher with Newcastle School of Yoga. Since completing her training she has combined her daily practice with an ever-increasing understanding of body energetics to create a unique yoga-based healing experience.
Harvest has also developed her feltmaking skills and spent a week on the Isle of Coll doing a feltmaking retreat. Her enthusiam and vibrant creations are a source of inspiration to other would-be felters.
Dave decided to fulfil a lifelong ambition to join a mountain rescue team and formalise his knowledge of mountaineering. After a year of intensive training he became a full team member of the Northumberland National Park Mountain Rescue Team and completed his Mountain Leadership certificate.
Wild Experiences Northumberland was launched in 2022 with the aim of sharing our passions for adventure, creativity and connection with nature through immersive and engaging activities.
We have had some great fun developing our own skills and experiences and would like to invite you to join us. You probably won’t remember staying at home for the week, but we guarantee that you will remember the time you spent with Wild Experiences.
Like our journey that started in 2011 you never know where your own “Heartfelt experience” will take you!
