We love Blue Barn! Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. Such a nice, comfortable place to come home from home to after our 'beachy' adventures!

We keep coming back to Blue Barn. We have stayed at Blue Barn in the summer and in the winter. Though each season provided different adventures, the one thing that remained constant was the peace and comfort of Blue Barn. Blue Barn is more like a home than a rental - with wonderful and unexpected luxuries like the oak furniture, top notch fittings and the open-planned space. We were able to walk every beach and visit all the sites, then come home to enjoy the fire, the television and the quiet hamlet of Warenton. Thanks for two unforgettable holidays.

We are all walkers and found the Blue Barn an ideal location to explore Northumberland, 5 minutes from the A1. Easy and quick access to Anwick, Berwick areas. It is near enough for a days visit to Edinburgh (my favourite city in the U.K.) The Barn is well equipped and the wood burner, with a large glass of wine, was luxury after a days walking. This area of the country appears to have its own weather system, during our stay we had clear sunny but cold days (March can be changeable) whilst the rest of the country had gales and endless rain. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
