A newly renovated for 2020 barn conversation, one of three, set in the heart of the Northumberland countryside which is an idyllic spot for a family getaway.

Tucked away in the Northumberland countryside, this stunning property is one of a complex of barn conversions. Exquisitely renovated to a high standard and sleeping up to eight people across four bedrooms, it is the ideal location for you and your friends or family to make memories together. Located in the north of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), you can immerse yourselves in the tranquillity, soak up the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside and explore the history of the local area. The Northern Pennines AONB boasts heather-clad moors, woods, rivers, upland hay meadows and a wealth of wildlife, such as black grouse, red squirrels and otters. With plenty of charming market towns nearby, you’ll have a range of independent shops and eateries to choose from. Of an evening, return home to soak in your hot tub whilst enjoying a spot of stargazing.

Beautifully refurbished throughout with careful attention to detail, this property is bursting with traditional touches that are in keeping with the building’s heritage. Add to this some stylish contemporary decor and you have a wonderful holiday home. At the centre of the house is a delightful open-plan living area where an original stable wall separates the lounge/diner from the well-equipped kitchen. The lounge has lots of comfy seating and a wood burner, making it cosy on a cold evening. Ascending the oak staircase, you will arrive at the four bedrooms: three king-size and one double, all with en-suite shower rooms and Smart TVs. The rooms are well-appointed with some original features incorporated into the design.

England’s highest market town, Alston (13 miles), is also home to excellent walks, including Cross Fell, which is the highest English hill outside of the Lake District. Venturing further afield, you can visit Britain’s biggest waterfall High Force in Upper Teesdale (24.5 miles) for some amazing views and photographic opportunities. Perhaps the biggest attraction nearby is the incredible Hadrian’s Wall which can be accessed within less than 10 miles from the property. For more adventurous types who don’t mind a drive, check out Kielder Water and Forest Park (40 miles) for plenty of outdoor fun.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Blinkers Stables. This is luxury accommodation in a wonderful setting with super hosts. Lots of things to do and see in the immediate area. If you enjoy castles and want to learn about Hadrians Wall, join English Heritage before you come. Lots of great walks for all abilities and good food in local pubs.
