Set within the owners’ 600 acre working beef, sheep and arable farm, it provides a pleasant setting for exploring the sandy beaches of the Northumberland coastline, The Cheviots and Scottish Borders.

Although set on the edge of a hamlet in peaceful countryside, the property is also just a short distance from the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just three miles away is Beal, where you’ll find the causeway to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, home to both a historic priory and a diverse array of wildlife. Elsewhere along the coastline, you’ll find beautiful walks, nature reserves, historic castles and pretty towns such as Bamburgh and Seahouses. Eight miles to the north you’ll find Berwick-upon-Tweed, the northernmost town in England, and beyond that you can explore the Scottish Borders and the pretty villages that line the River Tweed.

Accessed via the owners’ farmhouse, through the back hall, an entrance and stairway leads up into this spacious annexe. Entering onto the landing, from here you’ll have access to every room in the property. Sit back and relax in the comfortable lounge, where you can curl up on the sofa and choose to listen to music on the stereo, watch your favourite shows on the TV or simply admire the views over the fields and out to sea through the dual aspect windows. The bright and airy kitchen/diner is a lovely place for a meal for two, whatever the occasion. A round dining table sits at the heart of the space, with the surrounding kitchen offering an electric oven, hob, microwave and fridge. Over in the bedroom, there is a comfortable king-size bed, with light filling the room when you open the curtains on a sunny morning and amazing views out the window. Finally, the bathroom offers a bath with a handheld shower, and a WC.

Located on a working farm, you are very welcome to explore the farmland and see first-hand what happens during a working day on the farm. If you’d rather just sit and enjoy the fresh air, there is an outdoor seating area found next to the farmhouse. Visitors are also welcome to bring bikes, fishing rods and any other equipment they wish, as secure storage is available. Ample parking space is available outside the farmhouse entrance.

The flat is very comfy, cosy and warm. It genuinely feels like home and provides an excellent base to visit the surrounding area.

Mr & Mrs Leyland are both exceedingly good and welcoming hosts. It was a pleasure to stay at West Kyloe again. Thank you.

A delightful property: it is very comfortable, spacious, well equipped and with stunning views of Lindisfarne, so good, it becomes addictive just watching the island change as the light varies. The hosts are utterly charming and one feels at home immediately. I wouldn't hesitate to book again.

We thought this flat (which is part of the owners' farmhouse, but with its own door and stairs) was just great. Beautiful stone farmhouse on lovely working farm. We loved the double-aspect kitchen windows in particular; great to come back to after a busy day and look out over the farmyard with martins flying all around. The owners were happy for usRead more to walk all around the farm which we did; lovely views at the top and also nice to see all the cows. Tastefully furnished flat. Hide

The farm is in a really beautiful location, with easy access to coastal attractions, and to the many historic locations in the nearby Cheviot hills. The family are lovely people, and are most welcoming.

The flat is self-contained, with everything two people would need. The owners are friendly. The heating is adequate (we went in winter), and the furniture (including the bed) is comfortable. There is some noise from farm activity, but it is not persistent or annoying. The location of the flat is excellent - great views over Lindisfarne - very shortRead more drives to Bamburgh, Holy Island, Berwick and the Scottish borders, all of which are worth seeing. There are several good local pubs/restaurants. Hide

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.
