Beautiful cottage, well designed, tranquil, with lovely views. Kitchen is spacious and well provided with utensils. The large corner suite is very comfortable and made TV viewing very easy. Decent sized TV (not always the case!) and lovely furniture throughout. The bedroom storage was the best we have encountered with good quality furniture.

This cottage is in an ideal location, very quiet but close enough to a shop for essentials. It is very well equipped and comfortable and the view from the front garden is excellent.

We had a brilliant week. Location central to anywhere we wanted to go, but peaceful and away from the crowds. Beds and pillows were so comfortable and the cottage is equipped with everything you need. We did a number of the walks and visited a number of thr places recommended by the owners in the information book. Only small problem we found was wiRead moreth the plumbing not allowing 2 showers to run at once and a toilet that kept running. Would thoroughly recommend The Blue Barn. Hide

Great cottage with lots of character! 10 out of 10 for warmth, comfort and cleanliness. Lots of garden space to sit out when the weather is good. Plenty space for parking and the cottage is located just a 12-15 minute drive away from Bramburgh castle. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation.

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.
