I found Blue Barn to be clean, spacious, comfortable and incredibly well equipped. The dog grooming kit was the icing on the cake of a very thoughtful inventory. When I made my booking, I wasnt certain that the location was ideal, but the road through Warenton seems to be very seldom used in February, and my stay was wonderfully quiet. I had no proRead moreblem walking my spaniel along the roadside each morning. Super location and lovely accommodation. I could recommend it to even my fussiest friends. Hide

Perfect venue for peace & quiet but to reach the coastal towns was quite a drag in view of the roadworks in place at the time, but we were there in off peak. The Barn was well equipped, warm, (in spite of 6" of snow outside) and very comfortable. The welcome pack was indeed very welcome as we were snowed in for 36 hours!

If you’re looking for a seaside holiday with a difference, visit Northumberland – a region brimming with beautiful golden, sandy beaches, rolling hills, craggy moorland, bustling market towns and fishing villages, and more castles than in any other county in England.

Situated in the North East of England, this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty boasts no less than 39 miles of unspoilt coastline to explore and a calendar packed with exhilarating water sports options. To indulge in a spot of surfing, kayaking or powerboating, take a trip to one of the many breath-taking Northumberland beaches - where dogs love a good walk and fresh local seafood is never far away.

Home to the awe-inspiring Cheviot Hills and the historical Hadrian’s Wall, the Northumberland National Park is renowned for its open spaces, award-winning Dark Skies and stunning rural backdrops - and is the least populated national park in Britain. Offering access to challenging hikes, horse-riding, rock-climbing and a multitude of other action-packed activities, the park is one of the region’s greatest draws.

There is a huge range of spectacular wildlife and sea life waiting to be sighted, whether you take a boat ride to the Farne Islands to admire the colony of Atlantic grey seals and puffins, or explore the Kielder Water and Forest Park, home to magnificent ospreys. If it’s history you’re looking for, the imposing Bamburgh Castle and the world-famous Alnwick Castle are undoubtedly worth a visit.

Alternatively, if you’re seeking the bright lights of a city adventure, Newcastle upon Tyne is the place to go. Here, you can experience world-class culture, outstanding attractions, superb shopping, impressive live shows, top entertainers and delicious cuisine in abundance.
