  • "Everything was perfect."

    It’s a beautiful spacious property and very comfortable and clean. Bedrooms are large and en suite and lovely walk in showers. It’s in a quiet peaceful village and easy to access Northumberland’s coastline and visitor attractions. The only slight disadvantage it has is the small kitchen. Not room for more than 4 to sit at a table in a compact space. It also meant a walk down a corridor to carry meals down to the dining room. But overall a 5 star property..

  • "A beautiful property with plenty of room to spread out Everything was perfect with lovely personal touches."

    The kitchen was well equipped, the bedding luxurious and having good internet connection and Sky TV was a bonus. The weather was awful all week so we couldn't make use of the lovely outside space. We would love to come back to this amazing property, hopefully in better weather, as Northumberland is our go to place for a summer break.

    This time we really enjoyed being able to make use of the courtyard to sit out to eat during the perfect summer weather. I love this property, it really feels like our home away from home.

    Barnacre is a fantastic property plenty of space for a big family with 2 lounges to relax in and all the bedrooms except one had Televisions in, and the secret room with the pool table was amazing and kept the kids and adults occupied in the evenings, the gardens were large and safe for the kids to run about in, we even had a game of rounders one night, highly recommend and the owner was lovely, we would go back

  • "We had a fabulous weekend stay at Barnacre."

    The cottage was comfortable, clean and child friendly. Beds were extremely comfortable, rooms spacious apart from kitchen but a large dining area made up for this. Only small problem was the large fridge had a puddle on the floor from the freezer side which I reported after leaving. There's a private outdoor area and a spacious area at the front also. We enjoyed nearby Cresswell beach and Morpeth Coronation Fair day nearby. Thanks for a great weekend. We will definitely return.

  • "This is the third time we have stayed at this property."

    It really feels like home from home. It is spacious enough for our large family to spread out and we love the ensuite bathrooms. It was fun to bring our grandchildren this year for the first time. Our granddaughter really enjoyed running around on the large lawn out front. The village is quiet and beautiful and yet a town is only 3 miles away with all the shopping facilities needed. We will indeed be back!

  • "Generally the accommodation was of a very high standard, and spacious."

    The kitchen lacked some of the polish of the rest of the accommodation, however. There were 9 in our party (5 adults, 4 children) and the oven was inadequate. It was too small and inefficient to cook a meal for that many people. The oven was only effective at it hottest setting, and took much longer to cook than our normal electric fan oven. Also, the property needs a larger dishwasher. It was impossible to get dinner plates in the lower basket without the upper basket raised to its highest setting, which prevented that being used for side plates and dishes, or even some of the glasses. Also, filling all the available space meant that the dishwasher did not clean efffectively. The G-Tech vacuum cleaner provided was so full and clogged with hair that it did not work, and had to be emptied and the roller cleaned, so that we could use it. The property notes folder had very little information contained in it, and there was no contact number for problems. We had a small water leak in an en-suite sink but there was no guidance on how to report it. On the positive side, the availability of Sky tv in both lounges was appreciated, particularly by the children. The bedrooms were very comfortable and well appointed. We would have appreciated more and larger towels when showering, but they were adequate. The laundry facilties were good, with the large capacity washing machine and tumble dryer working well.

    The oven is a conventional family size gas double oven. It is always recommended to cook on a higher temperature than a fan oven. The dishwasher was only installed the day before you arrived as a brand new replacement. The contact number is in the Sykes booking information The cleaning lady always empties the vacuum cleaner.

  • "Barnacre is the best rental home we have stayed in to date."

    A lot of thought and care has gone into the planning and equipping of this gorgeous property and garden. My one suggestion is for a more accessible chair in the lounge for elderly less mobile guests. Our party included three generations which were all accommodated comfortably.

The property

Morpeth 3.1 miles.

Resting on the outskirts of the lovely market town of Morpeth, Northumberland is this stunning, all-ground-floor, semi-detached holiday home, Barnacre.

Hosting a total of five bedrooms, four shower rooms, two large sitting rooms and a secret games room, all beautifully-appointed with excellent amenities, this is the perfect property for a large family or group gathering.

Off-road parking is available for four cars for an easy arrival to unload your bags and get settled in straight away.

Head to the quaint kitchen/diner to stock up the cupboards and a large American-style fridge/freezer with your favourite foods, where the group's chef can rustle up home-cooked meals using the gas double oven, hob and microwave, whilst the handy dishwasher can do all the cleaning.

Keep your holiday clothes fresh in the utility just opposite, complete with a washing machine, tumble dryer and iron.

The formal dining room is a wonderful, bright space to host family dinners, with an exposed brick wall, charming décor and a large dining table to sit all 11 guests.

A convenient cloakroom is also nearby to quickly freshen up before dinner!

Find the first of two sitting rooms with three leather sofas, a selection of books to curl up for a quiet read, and a Sky TV to catch up on your favourite shows, all by the warmth of the gas fire resting against a stunning exposed brick wall.

Why not take a bottle of wine to the second sitting room and toast to your retreat?

Start the multi-fuel stove and sink into the sumptuous sofas, with rustic furnishings for a charming setting, as well as a Sky TV to host a movie night.

Guests will be delighted to find a surprise games room just next door behind a bookshelf; lift the small cat ornament to open a secret door into a splendid, billiard-style room with dark walls, arm chairs and a pool table to challenge your loved ones to a game.

Each guest will relish a delightful stay at Barnacre with each bedroom containing a sitting area with TV; head to the left wing of the house to choose from one of five fabulous bedrooms, including two king-size with en-suite shower rooms, a family room sleeping three, and another king-size.

Two more bedrooms offer a private space for a small family, with a king-size leading to a twin, both served by a sleek, contemporary shower room.

All guests have access to a separate shower room, complete with a spacious walk-in shower to rinse off the day in style, whilst your towel toasts on the heated towel rail.

In the centre of Barnacre lies a pretty, enclosed courtyard, which can be accessed via patio doors from the bedrooms and living areas; savour your morning coffee fresh from the coffee maker at the outdoor seating, whilst one well-behaved pet can wander around in safety.

Enjoy access to a shared garden with gravelled area and outdoor seating to make the most of the evening sunshine.

When it's time to venture out for the day, you'll find an abundance of attractions and amenities right on your doorstep; avid golfers have easy access to Longhirst Hall Golf Course to take their pick between two 18-hole lakeland courses, each surrounded by stunning countryside to escape the hustle and bustle.

Morpeth is a bustling market town just a short journey away for a range of shops and eateries, whether that's to pick up the essentials or take a break from cooking; find plenty of historic sites to explore with Morpeth Castle, a medieval chantry, and the award-winning Carlisle Park, decorated with formal gardens and ancient woodland for pleasant strolls.

Sun-seekers can relax on the beautiful sands of Whitley Bay Beach in the popular seaside town with all the traditional attractions, such as amusement arcades along the promenade and fresh fish and chips.
