our education centre at houghton

Our education centre is an accessible building with toilets, situated right at the heart of Susan's Farm - back-to-back with the lambing shed and adjacent to the chicken pen.

Craig's Kitchen

Our large, industrial-standard kitchen is where meals and preserves are prepared. Named after an excellent cook, Craig Brough, who officially opened the building.

the tyler room

A large education and meeting space with permanent displays on farming and conservation amongst other education resources. Named, in 2009, after Val Tyler, the then head of Houghton C of E Primary School.

susan's mess

Referred to by Susan herself as 'Susan's Mess', this is our staff office. Featuring a large original artwork by Freya Pocklington of Susan with one of her Longhorns, which featured as part of a National Trust project on women working with animals.






At our other site near Armathwaite, set in rolling countryside, we have a rustic building to use for shelter, complete with tea/coffee making facilities and a toilet.

the wetlands at aglionby

Watch our video to find out about the Wetlands, just off the M6 at Junction 43, through Aglionby village.

Our wetlands are the ideal place to learn about various habitats, exploring the plants and the animals that live there. 


This aerial shot shows you the location of the education room, composting toilet and various boardwalks that surround two of the ponds. 


With adjacent woodlands and hedges, the wetlands is a vibrant wildlife habitat in which to explore. There are many opportunities to link learning to the National Curriculum and of course, just being outside is a welcome tonic.


To find out more visit our education pages or email helen@susansfarm.co.uk.
