A clever byre conversion located in the grounds of a Grade II-listed Manor House surrounded by open countryside and views. Perfect for exploring, walking, cycling or simply relaxing together.

Dating back to the 18th century, this imaginatively converted byre makes a fabulous couple’s retreat. Set within the grounds of a Grade II-listed manor house in the picturesque Northumberland village of Birtley, this is a romantic getaway for two. A fresh, warm and inviting open-plan bolthole, the property is a couple of miles north of Chipchase Castle, and within easy reach of Hexham and the remains of Hadrian’s Wall. Tastefully furnished and delightfully decorated throughout, this idyllic property makes a great base for walking, hiking, cycling and running, with quaint villages along the way, and plenty of wildlife and scenery to glimpse.

Stepping into this beautifully converted farm building with its high ceiling, exposed beams and feature stone wall, you will find yourself in the spacious and relaxing open-plan living area. Bi-fold doors allow plenty of light into the cosy lounge which makes a great space to snuggle up in when the evening comes and enjoy a movie on the Smart TV. The central kitchen island provides a charming spot for sharing your favourite meals, and the stylish and thoughtfully designed kitchen has a useful range of equipment. The rear of the property features the pretty double bedroom as well as an invigorating shower room. Open the bi-fold doors, where the gravelled area outside provides a pleasant spot for unwinding on the outdoor furniture, dining alfresco or stargazing at night. You are also welcome to explore Cat Wood, nine acres of private woodland just a short stroll away.

With the historic market town of Hexham to the south (12.5 miles) and the pretty village of Bellingham to the north (7.5 miles), this beautiful property is ideal for exploring a stunning part of the Northumberland countryside. Local attractions include Housesteads Roman Fort, Corbridge Roman Town and the Temple of Mithras (all within 15 miles).

The Byre is a beautifully converted property set in a gorgeous and peaceful rural village, with plenty of space inside and ample parking. A perfect base from which to explore Northumberland. The kitchen facilities are excellent considering the size and it wasn't any trouble to cook a couple of meals using the microwave/oven and hob. Kristen was reaRead morelly helpful and recommended a decent long walk to do round the countryside. We enjoyed seeing some local wildlife as well as the dark skies. Hide

The Byre is amazingly spacious in a lovely quiet location. Very small village with no amenities e.g. shop/pub which means that you need to travel to eat out and shop for any essentials required. Pleasant friendly hosts

Being the first to stay in The Byre was a real treat. As expected it is compact but lacks no facility and there is great attention to detail. It is comfortable, warm, quiet and nothing is too much trouble for the fantastic host Kristen, who enhanced our stay with great recommendations for walks from the door.

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.
