Property code: 78158

A newly renovated for 2020 barn conversation, one of three, set in the heart of the Northumberland countryside with your own private hot tub.

Sitting on the edge of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are plenty of tracks to walk, cycle and explore close to home. Sleeping four guests over two bedrooms, this bolthole is great for small families or friends with a love for the great outdoors. A creative mix of traditional, retained features and contemporary style, this converted blacksmith shop is brimming with charm and character, with exposed beams and stonework and original tools. For the perfect sundowner evening, relax in the hot tub and admire the far-reaching verdant views before cosying up by the wood burner.

Step through the arched entrance and find yourself in the kitchen - the heart of the home. Exuding rustic charm with its exposed beams and stone walls, this is a lovely space in which to spend time, whether that be to cook up a storm or sit a while with a mug of tea or coffee. With everything you need to cater for dinner times, stock the elegant cupboards with ingredients and set to work preparing a delicious feast. Plate up at the table and enjoy sociable meals with loved ones before taking a tipple outside to the patio and soaking in the bubbling hot tub. The welcoming lounge is a great place to curl up on chilly evenings or for a lazy afternoon. The large, corner sofa has plenty of room for everyone to get comfortable and is perfectly positioned for flicking through the TV and watching your favourite programmes. Two beautifully decorated bedrooms have doors to outside and are tranquil places in which to drift off. There is off-road parking and an electric car charging point.

Find yourselves in Hadrian’s Wall country and travel 15 miles to the remains of the wall at Cawfields Quarry. From here, walk to The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre (a further 3 miles) and find out where to plan your next adventures. A 10-mile trip will take you to the bustling market town of Hexham where tasty eateries, galleries and independent shops line the streets.

Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location but near so many places to visit! We loved the fire and the hot tub and boss the friendly doggy. The underfloor hearting was lovely and the feature of the bellows and tools in the kitchen was fab!

This is a very clever conversion from a blacksmiths shop which provides very cosy warm accommodation. The area is stunning and there are so many things to see and do. The local pub is great and whilst you will feel remote there are towns nearby with everything you will need. Overall this is a really good cottage.

Great cottage, really well equipped, specd to a really high standard, and in a great location for peace and quiet and star gazing. The features in the cottage linking it to its history were unique and really made it a special place to stay. Will definitely look to return as we had such a great week. And we loved Boss the dog!

What a great base The Blacksmiths shop is for exploring the stunning area of the North Pennines AONB and Northumberland National Park.

What a superb cottage which tells a story as soon as you walk into the kitchen and see the forge and bellows. The rest of the cottage is very much in keeping with the theme. Location is excellent and cottage is superbly equipped - deluge shower is invigorating, hot tub private and very close to property, underfloor heating meant we were barefoot inRead more February.

Really loved our stay here- the property is so full of character, yet has every modern comfort one could expect. The hot tub was lovely even in the snowy weather we had, especially on a clear, dark night- so many stars visible. One thing to note: when we stayed there were no bathrobes or towels supplied for getting to and from the hot tub (we used Read morethe spare towels from the second bedroom as there were only 2 of us). Worth checking with the owner before you set off if you need to pack them! Hide
