    The owners Louise and Giles made us feel welcome right from the beginning, their knowledge of the surrounding areas and things to do really helped for a much more fun filled stay. The property was beautiful, comfy beds, fantastic amenities and even a delicious home made cake which our children enjoyed very much. The Barn is in an ideal place for exploring the local area with lots of things to do in a small radius. If you want to stay somewhere in the Northeast this is definitely the property to choose, we can’t recommend it enough and we will definitely be booking again for our next holiday. Whitcombe Family.

About the location


Gateshead 4.1 miles; Washington 4.8 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 6.8 miles.

Kibblesworth is a village west of Birtley, Tyne and Wear, England. Although there had been coal-mining in the Kibblesworth area from medieval times, relatively few men were employed in the industry until the sinking of Robert Pit in 1842. From this date the fortunes of the village followed those of the industry with particular black spots during the strikes of 1921 and 1926 and the depression of the 1930s, high spots in the boom of the 1950s and 60s, and eventually closure of the pit in 1974. Nearby is Gateshead, a town located on the southern bank of the River Tyne. The town centre has also been redeveloped, with the Trinity Square development opening in May 2013. The centre incorporates many shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, offices and student accommodation. Venture towards Newcastle upon Tyne for its Victoria Tunnel, which has a guided tour and is considered a masterpiece of Victorian engineering. It's a great slice of history with ghouls thrown in for entertainment purposes. Follow in the footsteps of the 1800s labourers and learn what colliery life was like back then. You’ll be kitted out with a torch and hardhat and listen to the ghostly tales which fill the passages. Kibblesworth is an ideal location, as it is surrounded by many neighbouring towns with wonderful attractions.
