The property

This welcoming Grade II listed detached barn conversion is located in the quiet rural hamlet of Holystone within the Northumberland National Park.

This spacious cottage has been beautifully restored with flair and imagination, to produce a wonderful holiday home for up to six people.

As you step over the threshold, the bright and airy sitting room will tempt you to kick off your boots and sink into one of the comfortable, reclining sofas.

The kitchen area with additional food preparation table is in the corner of this room and has all you need to rustle up a wholesome meal.

Once prepared, the whole party can retire to the dining room to sit and chat over dinner.

Stairs from the sitting room lead to two large king-size bedrooms and there are two single beds on the landing which are perfect for younger guests.

The front enclosed garden has stunning open views over the surrounding countryside; what better way to round off the day than enjoying this peaceful setting.

Why not spend your time exploring the stunning local area with its spectacular walking and cycling routes right on your doorstep?

Just short drives away are a fabulous range of places to visit such as Cragside House and Gardens at Rothbury; Alnwick Castle and Gardens; the Heritage Coastline and Hadrian’s Wall.

A day trip to Kielder Water and its observatory may also be of interest.

The Hemmel is the perfect cottage for that relaxing countryside break.

About the location


Rothbury 8 miles.

The stone-built village of Holystone lies just within the Northumberland National Park on the north bank of the River Coquet. Nearby Lady’s Well has an ornate pool and natural spring, the site of which has almost certainly been used since prehistoric times as a religious shrine and is one of the most tranquil places in Northumberland - a wonderful place to sit and recharge the batteries. The Holystone Forest Walks and moorland can be immediately accessed. Alternatively a short drive will take you to the Simonside Hills, which provide some of the best walking and cycling in the county. Nearby Rothbury has an array of excellent shops, restaurants, pubs, tea rooms, golf course, public swimming pool, cycle hire and the famous National Trust Cragside House and Gardens. A little further afield there's more history to explore in the form of wonderful castles and endless beaches of the Heritage Coastline and there’s Hadrian’s Wall of course. Kielder Water offers outdoor events, while Kielder Observatory will interest stargazers.
