This reverse level barn conversion is ideally located to explore the glorious Northumberland coast and countryside with all it has to offer with something for everyone.

With sand, sea and surf nearby at many coastal destinations, escape to the seaside with family and call this charming barn home. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, this bolthole welcomes one dog too, so you can all head out to explore the beach and sights at Bamburgh (2.5 miles) before returning home for a cosy night with a book or a good film.

Step up and into this welcoming home and climb stairs to the first floor to settle in. A bright, light space which sits beneath a characterful, vaulted ceiling, the open-plan living area is a wonderful place to spend lazy mornings, relaxing afternoons and sociable evenings - catering for all occasions. Pluck a book from the shelf or unbox a puzzle and settle down for some peace and quiet on the comfortable sofas. When it’s time to start rustling up dinner, the snug yet light kitchen area has all you need to cook delicious meals which can be plated up either inside, or outside in the courtyard (shared with other properties on-site). Downstairs, the family bathroom invites you to unwind with a soak in the bath before you head to bed in one of two pretty bedrooms: a double and a twin. Rise and shine and get ready to head out for a fun-filled family day exploring. There is off-road parking for one car.

Hop in the car or walk 2.5 miles to bustling Bamburgh where you can keep guests of all ages entertained for hours. Welcoming dogs, the beach is a great place to make a splash in the sea and to build sandcastles. Visit the castle with its magnificent views, tee up and enjoy a game of golf, and take a trip to the Grace Darling Museum. Nearby, Beadnell Bay (8 miles) is renowned for its water sports, try your hand at surfing, sailing or scuba diving to name a few activities on offer at this vibrant seaside hub. Journey inland to Northumberland National Park and climb the highest summit in the Cheviot Hills, The Cheviot (20 miles), where your ascent is rewarded with magnificent views.

The property is excellent for two to four people. The location is great for local walks and birdwatching in Budle Bay as well as along the coast North, South and inland.

In a good location close to Bamburgh and within walking distance of a bay and beach but the road you walked on was busy with no path in some places. The rooms were warm and beds were comfortable. Plenty of bedding & towels. We had a lovely week in the cottage with friends joining us for a couple of nights - there was plenty of room for us all.

Great little property. Rustic and we'll equipped. The shower is quite underpowered and a bit lackluster, it also (at time of writing) leaks onto the bathroom floor. Which makes an exciting slip and slide on the tiled floor. But a nice comfy bed and a spacious lounge area are great features.
