Overview

Slate & Nature is a family run business based in the heart of Northumberland. We are committed to producing beautiful and innovative products from reclaimed and environmentally friendly slate to enhance Nature. In house designed for in the house and around the garden. Every product is handmade in our riverside workshop/studio and is as unique as every piece of slate that goes into its production. And slate being slate, our products are both durable and easily maintained. If you have something you would like to have made in slate, we're happy to undertake commissions, or if you would just like to know more about what we do, we would like to hear from you and to see you. You can also relax at our Riverside terrace, enjoy a cup of coffee/tea, whilst you 'dream' away by listening to the trickling water and observing our most admired tranquil wildlife setting. We are most days/early evenings open, but ring in advance to avoid disappointment.
