  • "A wonderful barn extremely well equipped and perfect hosts, there if needed but kept away when not."

    The directions were clear and very easy to follow. The barn was rated excellent with us and we have stayed in many lovely holiday homes, this was certainly one of the best.

  • "The Red Barn was one of the loveliest Cottages we have stayed in."

    It was so peaceful. The owners have thought of every thing to make your stay comfortable. We would go back again and again. The Northumberland countryside offers something for everyone.

  • "We had an excellent holiday at the Red Barn, it was a very relaxing & peaceful break."

    The cottage was warm, spacious, well equipped & comfortable. Lots of extras provided like tea, coffee, milk, cake, flowers & toiletries etc. Comfy beds, all bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, plus a downstairs cloakroom, separate large dining room & huge kitchen - meaning lots of space. Nice peaceful surroundings, yet not far to travel to all of the tourist attractions. Highly rated.

  • "What a fantastic find, we had a week at The Red Barn at the end of February and what an incredible week we had."

    It is a really lovely property, very clean and well equipped and ideal for a family. It had everything you could possibly need and was really like home from home. We were sad to leave.

  • "Beautifully presented with lots of lovely welcome touches."

    Everything needed was there and available. Lovely quiet location with good access to the coast and inland. Excellent property for 3 couples or 2 couples and 2 children. Highly recommended

  • "A beautiful property in a lovely location, the house is well equipped and comfortable."

    The only disappointment was the lack of outside space, it would have been ideal if we could have had access to at least some of the garden, but we were restricted to the patio area which had close proximity to the neighbouring house. Also, not comfortable with the owner accessing the house at any time they felt like it. Not had this situation in any cottage we’ve hired before. To sum up Red Barn is a great space for families or groups due to the ensuites but perhaps more of a winter retreat than summer.

  • "The property was a real delight, there was plenty of room for our family, the living room was spacious with ample comfortable sofas for everyone."

    The property had everything we required, even wine, milk, and cake when we arrived - and flowers on the dinning room table! The spacious patio outside was great to enjoy the welcome sunshine. The Wi Fi worked perfectly. The local pub & restaurants were friendly and served very enjoyable food Gillian was on hand to give any help required, and tips on places to visit We had a great holiday. thank you!

  • "This property is one of the best we have ever stayed at."

    Every little thing that we could possibly have needed was provided plus more. The house has three double bedrooms with their own en suites which our mothers loved. The kitchen had every pan and utensil that anyone could ever need. The living room and log burner ...amazing. The wine and cake when we arrived were lovely as well as the little bowl of chocolates in the lounge and the bubble bath/shower gel in each of the en suites. The owner Gillian checked everything was up to our expectations on our arrival and recommended local attractions. Lots of information in the house re walks etc In summary ....just lovely

  • "Excellent accommodation."

    Only one negative, the advert on sykes includes a picture of a garden. Which makes you think that the barn has a garden. The garden in the picture is infact that of the owners next door and not for use of the rental property. Very misleading. The advert would be more accurate by not including this picture of the garden and stating that it doesn't have a garden.

  • "The Red Barn is a very attractive property in a beautiful rural location."

    The amount of equipment in the property is exceptional. It was so good to be able to fill the dishwasher and still have some crockery to use. The garden is large and interesting and our 15 year old grandson was able to do his football training on the large lawn without damaging anything ! There are many beaches and places of interest to visit from here without traveling very far.

  • "The red barn is a fantastic holiday cottage which has been built to a high specification."

    This extends to the furniture and all finishing materials (granite worktops, real stone, etc etc). The showers are all high pressure and very hot. The kitchen is well equipped and the cutlery/crockery is also all high quality. The huge fridge is a great addition and makes it easy to have enough in for a week. The only thing which was a notable let down were the mattresses. With the exception of the master bedroom where the mattress was comfortable enough, the other double and both single beds were rather awful. They are old spring mattresses and are noticeably uncomfortable. This is the only issue in an otherwise fantastic holiday cottage. We would stay again if the mattresses were changed but otherwise the disrupted sleep doesn't make up for the brilliant rest of the house.

    We are a family of 4, (2 boys 5 and 9) The boys loved having their own en suite. The master bedroom feels really luxurious too. The views were lovely and the extra touches made it special eg wine and cake on arrival and toweks/bath robes. There was also loads to do and we had great day out at Cragside as recommended by the owners. We also visited the nearby zoo and had a bracing but fun cycle along the coast to Amble. Food at the Granby Inn in the village great quality for dinner and the Running fox was lovely too for breakfast or lunch. Thank you very much
