About
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 open most days/early evenings, but please ring in advance to avoid disappointment.

Made welcome by two charming people.
Jun 2021
We were welcomed into an amazing studio belonging to a most charming couple. Nothing was too much trouble, on our second visit gift were engraved whilst we went out to lunch. The range of slate items is fantastic, making such good use of unwanted material. Do visit you will not be disappointed. Also visit Mary Ann Rogers Gallery close by. Her art work is beautifully displayed in a modern gallery.

Great service and lovely hand made products
Jun 2021
I ordered a name plate for my house and Gerard did several mock-ups until I was completely happy with the design. The finished item is beautiful and I am very happy with it. Jeanette and Gerard are lovely people and I recommend a visit to their studio where they have lots of gorgeous hand made reclaimed slate items.

A treat!

A gorgeous little shop/work shop selling beautiful handmade items from slate. In a stunning setting next to the river, this is a hidden gem. Owners are also charming and so friendly.

Going back later in the week to collect some additional items made to order.

Wonderful slate creations!
May 2021 • Business
We have really been enjoying watching the first visitors to our fabulous new Slate and Nature bird table. It is a great design and really makes a statement. Our neighbour donated a sturdy pole and with half a bag of postcrete in the hole the bird table is as steady as a rock. Thank you both so much - Gerard for your amazing design and construction skills and Jeanette for all the customer liaison you do so brilliantly behind the scenes. Slate and Nature is a wonderful company to buy from.
Oh - and we love our window bird feeder and large postbox too!

Beautiful items crafted from slate
Apr 2021
I ordered a slate address sign from Slate & Nature and was delighted by the results! Gerard is a true craftsman, cutting, engraving and painting reclaimed slate to make something beautiful. It's well worth a visit to his workshop to see where the magic happens and to meet the lovely Jeanette who was our point of contact from ordering to collection. Such a fantastic business, I highly recommend them.

Such an amazing place!
May 2018 • Couples
Gerard and Jeanette were simply lovely - and I loved their sweet dog! Stunning place to visit and such amazing and quality things to buy. For any budget too - I wish I could have afforded one of the lovely bird tables; they were gorgeous! Got a butterfly house though - hope it helps the wee flutterbyes in my garden!

Bespoke Engraved Slate Photo Frame
Mar 2018
Jeanette and Gerard are a fantastic team, and between the two of them (Jeanette’s communication and Gerard’s handiwork) I received a beautiful slate photo frame engraved with a raven, this was a very special 50th Birthday gift, which exceeded all my expectations. Thank you so much!

Slate and Nature is run by the dutch couple, Jeanette and Gerard, who make visitors feel very welcome, and showed me round their beautiful studio where the river Rede runs RIGHT BY!!! So many wonderful things made from reclaimed slate- bird feeders, owl boxes, hedgehog houses, some even lit by LED's.
