Prepare for a gloriously rustic experience at this beautiful stone barn conversion, located within a 1,800-acre working hill farm within the Northumberland National Park. It makes a wonderful rural retreat for couples or a group of friends wishing to holiday with their dogs. You’ll have numerous marked walking trails and paths starting right at your doorstep, including tracks to The Pennine Way (2 miles) and unmarked routes across the valley, making it easy to explore on foot.

Retaining plenty of its original charm and features, this lovely former barn is full of period features like stone walls and beamed vaulted ceilings in the bedroom. The spacious lounge features lovely tiled flooring and a feature wood burner to keep you all cosy. In the bright shaker-style kitchen, accessed via a step down from the lounge, you can prepare meals and picnic hampers and dine altogether. When night falls, the large bedroom features a double bed, two singles, a bunk bed, and a sofa bed, which can be separated by a beautifully handcrafted sliding barn door. You’ll have plenty of space outside for relaxing, too, with a paved patio area equipped with outdoor furniture, a BBQ and a fire pit. This is a dark sky spot, so the garden is wonderful for stargazing.

Keen cyclists can explore the Sandstone Way (1 mile) or Route 68, which leads all the way to Hexham 55 miles away. If you feel like doing something more leisurely, tuck into a traditional pub lunch in Wooler (8 miles). Craving the sea air? The quaint fishing village of Seahouses (24 miles) offers the opportunity to stroll by the harbour or embark on a boat trip to the wildlife-rich Farne Islands for bird-spotting. Alnwick Castle and Gardens (16.5 miles) is also a fantastic option for an afternoon out.

We found the cottage to be very comfortable and welcoming. The owners provided lots of information about the farm and waymarked walks from the property. We enjoyed the remoteness, the views, the sheep, the birds and meeting the friendly neighbours.

Lovely cottage. Would have benefited with a baking tray. You have asked if we would reccomend this property. Yes if you included information about the water.

A really cosy and welcoming cottage, cleverly and sympathetically converted from the original barn, but still totally in harmony with it's fabulously remote location, The hosts were lovely and we really appreciated the trouble they took to makes us feel at home, to the extent of having lit the wood burning stove for our arrival. The cottage dcorRead more and furnishings were just right for the location and property style, but the view out the window was so stunning the rest paled into insignificance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was a wonderful relaxing base from which to explore Northumberland for the first time. Hopefully we'll get back again soon. Hide

Amazing stay at The Dod yet again the biscuits were delicious. The walks around there are brilliant for our dog and she loved them. The view is wonderful, and there was lots of castles to visit e.g Warkworth, Bamburgh & Alnwick. And i loved feeding the horses!

Another fantastic stay at The Dod. The weather was kind to us and our dog loved the freedom on her walks. We loved the wood-burning stove in the evenings and plenty of wood. Thank you for the biscuits ect on arrival. We didn't want to leave!

A brilliant place for a gathering of friends & family. The barn was just spot on. Lovely chat with the owner and the neighbor next door & find we have all got connections through family & work at the national park!

What a fabulous holiday!! Beautiful sky on the first night with the fire pit lit. We've enjoyed bike rides, the beach and visited Ford and Elal. Cottage is beautiful- everything we need! Have been surrounded by mountains, wildlife and animals.

Beyond expectations, even little things thought out to make the stay home from home. The kids loved sharing one big room. The views! Even the dog was fully relaxed the whole week we will definitely be back.

Another lovely 10 days spent at the barn. A great welcome and beautifully tranquil surroundings. The girls loved seeing the ponies again and seeing the sheep shearing. We'll continue to recommend it to our friends and family. Hopefully, we'll be back very soon!
