This little business has come about as a direct result of my passion for this amazing county and also for the 6 border collies that I have had over the years. The evolution of the Rocking Horse cafe has certainly been out of my control. I met Richard Dunwoody a number of years ago and we had similar interests (not horses though 🤣). I encouraged Richard to come and photograph the coastline and castles of Northumberland, after he took some fabulous photos of my dogs (especially Ben, who the cafe was initially named after). Then we somehow established a dog friendly cafe and put the two factors together. So we now offer amazing aerial photos of this area and whilst customers enjoy the beautiful shots, we are busy cooking fabulous local produce or homemade food. Even our coffee is roasted on Holy Island.

Whilst we are developing a series of small businesses in this courtyard, the next stage of our development is to launch a website that encompasses all that we are trying to create here at the Rocky. It has been designed by Mirame Marketing ( and we are delighted with what they have created. There are so many ideas to develop over the coming months and these will be added on to this initial construction.We really hope you like the design and information that it offers and if anyone has any positive or constructive ideas to grow and improve it, we would love to hear from you.Our thanks to the team at Mirame for the hours they have put in to get the design right and hope you will enjoy following the growth of The Rocking Horse courtyard over the coming years.The address of the website is but our original address of also works.

Happy reading.
