Stylish barn conversion set in glorious countryside on an easy-going working farm where relaxed ducks and geese roam freely, and you can enjoy space indoors and out. Perfect for a family or friends.

Located on a laid-back working farm with 20 acres of meadow and woodland on your doorstep. Walk along ‘Devil’s Water’, a tributary of the River Tyne at the foot of the meadow for lovely scenery. The owners offer cookery and gardening courses in the adjacent dairy barn and you can arrange a local chef to cook for a special occasion. Visit nearby shops, pubs, restaurants in the bustling market town of Hexham and the quaint village of Corbridge offers charming shops and restaurants. The Northumberland National Park and the North Pennines AONB are both nearby and you can explore the Roman ruins at Housesteads Roman Fort, Vindolanda and Hadrian’s Wall.

Enter the property by the front door into the hallway. The stylish bedrooms are on the ground floor with feature stone walls, polished concrete floors and underfloor heating. The first has a king-size bed and window seats offering views out onto the farm’s lovely garden and an en-suite shower room with shower and WC. The second bedroom has a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom with bath, separate shower and WC. Head upstairs to the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Exposed beams and feature stonework remind you of the property’s working past and the room is flooded with light from various windows and clever lighting. High ceilings and exposed beams add to the sense of space and light, while the cosy wood burner allows you to snuggle up together on the comfortable sofas after a day out and about to catch up with your favourite shows on Smart TV. Enjoy sitting at the dining table for sociable meals and you can chat with the cook over a glass of wine from the breakfast bar. The contemporary, well-equipped kitchen has everything you will need with an electric oven and induction hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Had a fabulous relaxing break. The cottage is excellently done and in an idyllic situation. The owners were welcoming and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this property to any group of 4 looking for a few relaxing days away from it all

This is a beautifully restored barn in a brilliant location. An "away from it" feeling, all but easy access to all amenities for self catering, restaurants and the wider attractipns of this beautiful county. The owners offer a warm welcome, are on hand when needed, but give you freedom of their lovely farm. PERFECT.

When we were met at the car door by the owner with umbrellas to protect us from the rain we knew we were onto a winner. Then she mentioned there was wine in the fridge and we knew we were onto a winner! Beautiful accommodation, beautiful setting, great hosts. The children loved feeding the friendly animals. We'll be back!
