Stylish barn conversion set in glorious countryside on an easy-going working farm where relaxed ducks and geese roam freely, and you can enjoy space indoors and out. Perfect for a family or friends.

Tucked between the Northumberland National Park, Kielder Water and Forest Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this rural retreat is an explorers’ paradise. Sleeping four guests and one of your dogs, escape to this working farm for a holiday full of stunning scenery and cosy evenings by the wood burner. For special occasions and fun ways to spend your day, arrange for a local chef to cook your dinner or book onto a cookery or gardening course in the nearby dairy barn.

Step up and into this gorgeous abode and head up to the first floor where the open-plan living space welcomes you inside with open arms. Sitting beneath a vaulted ceiling, with exposed stonework and a warming wood burner, this space is perfect for all occasions and exudes character and rustic allure. The cool kitchen is decorated in sultry, dark tones creating a wonderful space in which to chop and slice ingredients to cook up a storm. The dishwasher is a handy addition to minimise the time you need to spend clearing up after sociable meals. Plate up at the circular table or take a plate outside onto the patio, where a BBQ is great for easy, summer feasts, before sinking into comfortable sofas and chairs and basking in the heat of the wood burner. Head to bed and warm your toes on the underfloor heating before slipping under the covers for a good night’s sleep. Rise and shine and freshen up in your en-suite before wandering down to the bottom of the meadow to stroll the Devil’s Water. There is off-road parking for two cars.

Time it right and visit the bustling town of Hexham (3 miles) to stock up on local produce and goodies at the twice-weekly market, or the twice-monthly farmers’ market. Travel deep into the Kielder Water and Forest Park and make the 28-mile trip to Tower Knowe Visitor Centre for a bite to eat, gorgeous views and a good place to start your adventure.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Duck House really is as good as it looks in the photographs. The renovations have been done to a very high standard and it shows. The little touches that the hosts provided were an unexpected bonus that we really appreciated. The hosts are great and made us feel very welcome. We were encouraged to feed their animals which our daughter loved and to Read morewalk around their lovely paddock, a fantastic setting in a great location for exploring Northumbria.

When we were met at the car door by the owner with umbrellas to protect us from the rain we knew we were onto a winner. Then she mentioned there was wine in the fridge and we knew we were onto a winner! Beautiful accommodation, beautiful setting, great hosts. The children loved feeding the friendly animals. We'll be back!

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
