A wonderful long birthday weekend away in this relatively new property which offered a quiet and tranquil break for us. Well placed to visit the surrounding areas with amenities local... Wonderful hosts who take time to have a chat and help with any queries. The property is a testament to the thought and labour that's gone into a building with sRead moreome history. Well equipped property. We'd love to return and stay longer another time... Hide

Honey Hirst is a recently renovated old barn. Everything inside is new and fresh and therefore very comfortable. Its peaceful. There is loads to do within about a 20 miles radius. We spent a great day around Hadrians Wall. Corbridge is lovely. Beamish is a must and very close. We ditched the car one day and went to Newcastle on the bus. The stopRead more is a 5 minutes walk. David, the owner and barn renovator recommended Blanchland, a gem, and Weardale. The countryside and especially the moors are beautiful and on the doorstep. We enjoyed our holiday very much. Hide
