A stunning stone barn conversion with those extra special touches in one of Northumberland’s most scenic areas. Set in Northumbria’s National Park on a working farm you cannot fail to relax here.

This stunning stone barn conversion is set on a working farm in the rolling Cheviot foothills of Northumberland National Park, one of Northumbria's most scenic areas. The traditional cottage is perfect to enjoy a romantic getaway, with special touches ensuring relaxation and recuperation.

Found in the hamlet of Rochester, which dates back to the Romans who built a fort there, you will be surrounded by 400 square miles of breath-taking landscape, just waiting to be explored on foot or by bicycle. As well as the beautiful Kielder Forest, the Cheviots and Hadrian's Wall all being on your doorstep, you will also be able to take in some of the UK's finest stargazing - the lack of light pollution means Northumbria National Park has the darkest skies in England.

Enter the property through the double gates, where a gravelled forecourt leads you to the front door. Stepping over the threshold, you'll enter a gorgeous farmhouse kitchen/diner, complete with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, beautiful Welsh dresser and pine dining table. To the right of the kitchen, step down into a spacious lounge with a wood burner, TV, DVD and a sofa bed. It’s an ideal space to relax after a day exploring the wonderful surrounding countryside. To the left of the kitchen, you'll find a sumptuous bedroom with a four-poster bed, en-suite shower and WC, and direct access to the private hot tub area outside. There is an enclosed garden and decked area with garden furniture to enjoy al fresco dining.

There is storage for bikes and off-road parking for two cars at the front of the property. Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This cottage is in a lovely rural area - the national park is stunning and a must for walkers and cyclists. The property is on a working farm - sheep and horses. This is really interesting and I was lucky to be there during lambing and foaling

We loved our holiday at Rochester House farm. The quality of the cottage is very high. Plenty of spare towels and dvds etc. Loved the hot tub which was very private and fenced off.

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.
