    A happy and inviting place for our family to stay whilst we were having work done on our house. Really cosy and warm with underfloor heating, spotlessly clean, all the amenities you need have been thought about and provided. Very helpful hosts who are available whenever needed. The only bad thing about the cowshed is it doesn’t belong to me!

    The location is perfect for a Northumberland holiday and for visiting Newcastle. The only reason I have not given the highest marks for comfort is that the dining chairs have suffered a degree of subsidence but this shouldn't put anyone off: I imagine most people will eat out and there are plenty of places in the vicinity.

  • "We had concerns about the cleanliness of the property soon after arrival."

    Although the initial impressions were good, it soon became clear that there were old cobwebs in corners and on the skylights and the oven had not been cleaned. Over the following days we noticed more and more residue from previous occupants such as detrius in the drawers and stains on the furniture. The property itself had several issues including blown bulbs, non working fan in the en suite bathroom, broken regulator on the shower in the other bathroom (meaning that it only went from very hot to scalding hot) and noise from aircraft landing at nearby Newcastle airport as late as 01:30.

Sure enough there was the "Old Cowshed" and "Zoe's Cowshed" in Witten ref: xx etc. although there are about 4 more steps than the "Cowshed" in Haddon and no wet room but a single shower which should be alright. It looks idillic and peacefully set in the country... if all goes well we will be extremely satisfied customers... Thank you very much indeed. Cynthia and family

    The cottage is perfect and there’s a lovely garden which we used quite a bit as the weather was nice. We were always mindful of the COVID situation and probably spent more time at the cottage than we would otherwise have done but it just gave us more time to enjoy it. We had it booked for last year but of course we couldn’t go so we had been looking forward to it for a long time but it was absolutely worth it. I would recommend it 100%!

Lovely Welcome pack on arrival - so a cuppa on arrival after a long journey is oh so gratefully received. Note that the master bedroom's en-suite actually has a wonderful large walk-in deluge shower - not mentioned by the owners or on the website (but it should be!). The whole place is perfectly accessible as is on one level - but there is a step into the front door or a much smaller step via the French Windows into the master bedroom (once you are in and have got the key..). Lovely little village with a nice pub (Lion and lamb) that serves really nice food. Note Horsley now only has a single pub as the other has recently closed. There is no local village shop, so Heddon-on-the-Wall (about 3 miles) for papers, milk and fuel etc. Corbridge (7 miles) is a lovely little town which we love and there are restaurants and cafes aplenty.

The open plan living space has a warming woodburning stove for those chillier evenings, where you can curl up on the gorgeous, velvety pink sofa, pour a glass of something chilled from the pink Smeg fridge and spend evenings recounting the day’s activities.

The bedrooms at The Cowshed have been carefully thought out, with the king-size double boasting a useful en-suite shower room and the lovely twin has a wonderful, handmade lampshade which creates shadows that dance over the walls, it’s sure to delight younger visitors.

About the location


Wylam 2 miles; Heddon-on-the-Wall 3 miles; Corbridge 7 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 8 miles; Hexham 12 miles.

The parish of Horsley is situated in one of the most scenic parts of east Tynedale, and forms part of a World Heritage Site. The Hadrian’s Wall long distance path is situated one mile north of the village of Horsley and is connected by existing rights of way, one of which travels through Horsley Wood, a woodland dating to the medieval period. Horsley village is steeped in history, and many of the buildings have strong architectural features and are of great historical significance, while Horsley is close to the village of Wylam, the birthplace of George Stephenson, one of the early pioneers of the railway industry. Along the road is Heddon-on-the-Wall which sits on the line of the old Hadrian’s Wall, still visible at the edge of the village, and the lovely town of Corbridge, which has history dating back to Roman times, is also nearby. Just a little further on is the Tyne Valley town of Hexham with its abbey, old gaol and old town centre. The vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its many pubs, shops, eateries, museums and other attractions is within driving distance and has something for everyone. Horsley is an ideal base for exploring this part of Northumberland.
