  • "Good location and comfortable beds."

    Lack of a garden to sit in, when plenty of scope to create one was disappointing. Living area surprisingly dark. The opaque glass in front door and at top of stairs created an oppressive environment. Cleanliness in kitchen could have been a lot better. Eg filthy old bread bin, stained dishcloths and a manky washing up brush. The welcome basket consisting of crackers, maltesers and cheap Proseco did not really achieve the feeling of being welcomed.

    Thank you for your feedback. I don’t agree with your points made other than the opaque glass in the front door which I’m in the process of changing. You are my first guest to complain on receiving a welcome pack, most people are grateful. Kind regards Camilla Property Owner

    Great peaceful location and ideal for everything we wanted to see.

  • "We came to Todridge Barn, to celebrate a 60th birthday."

    We arrived in the dark which meant the next morning we were welcomed with wonderful views all around. The location for us was brilliant, quiet & peaceful which we & our border collie loved. He settled in the cottage really well. The cottage itself is fantastic, the photos look good but the reality is even more wow! Everything you need is there & the showers are fab! The only downside for us was, we were only there for a weekend. We could have done with longer to truly enjoy the cottage & area to its fullest.

    Thank you for your really lovely feedback. I hope the birthday celebrations were a success and come back anytime! Kind regards Camilla Property Owner

    It’s set in a stunning and peaceful location with lovely walks on your doorstep. The barn is perfect and decorated to a very high standard. It’s cosy and warm with everything you need. The owner is super helpful and really goes the extra mile to make your stay perfect. I brought my younger son and my dog and we had the best time exploring this beautiful part of the UK and then returning to the barn, lighting a fire, watching a movie and cooking dinner. I left feeling totally relaxed and recharged. We will definitely be back.

  • "This cottage was perfect for a rural retreat, on a working farm with beautiful rolling farm fields with footpaths through them leaving straight from the cottage."

    We were a group of 3 couples and were delighted to find each of the bedrooms were identical sizes with ensuites. The cottage is finished to a high standard throughout with a cosy log fire in the open plan kitchen living room. The cottage is very well setup for dogs with a dog gate at the bottom of the stairs as well as a gated courtyard outside the cottage where the dogs could run around safely outside.

    Great views, beautiful barn, with everything you need for a great break. Very clean, lovely bedding and towels. The downstairs was perfect for our party of 6 adults where we could be together to cook, eat and enjoy the lounge area with the log burner, prosecco and chocolates. We loved our stay at Todridge Barn.

  • "A really comfortable base for exploring Northumberland."

    Lovely and quiet, a couple of miles down single track roads. Our group consisted of 3 friends so it was great we each had a double/ king sized room with en-suite, and having the downstairs area as open plan made it great for socialising. A larger tv is really needed for the size of the room, and some proper storage for clothes in the bedrooms would be a nice addition. We all agreed we would be happy to book the barn again, and one of us has already started making plans to return with husband and dogs!

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We have since put a 42 inch flat screen in the barn. We look forward to your return visit! Property Owner

  • "The location of Todridge Barn is great for local walks and scenery, particularly if you have a dog."

    It is also conveniently not far from the Vallum Farm wedding venue. It was good to have 3 en-suite bedrooms with very comfortable beds, but we found the single downstairs room very compact for our party of 4 adults, a baby and a dog (the area downstairs is smaller than upstairs). The kitchen is well equipped for cooking but the fridge is very small and there was no empty cupboard space for us to store our food. The owner very helpfully provided baby equipment with linen as well as a thoughtful welcome basket.

  • "The Barn is beautifully finished and we loved the remote location."

    The downstairs space is very snug for 6 people and if it had been wet we would have struggled with storage for boots and coats etc. Just enough space for one dog crate. Camilla responded to queries very quickly and we enjoyed the contents of the welcome basket.

    I wish you'd asked as the barn/stables directly opposite the property are empty and I'm happy for guests to use! Property Owner

  • "Cottage & location overall pretty good."

    Unfortunately and rather disappointedly we all found the beds to be very uncomfortable and could all feel the springs on the mattresses which made a noise and clanged every time you moved or turned over. Not sure if it was a mattress protector on our bed or an insufficient mattress topper. Was surprised that there were no pillow protectors provided either. Shame because the bed linen was good quality. The beds don’t appear to be old just poor quality and not what you’d expect for the cost of the accommodation. Think this needs addressing or perhaps decent thick mattress toppers would significantly help. Bedrooms very dark in the day with limited natural light. So better/stronger lighting in each room would improve this. The television in the lounge was far too small for the size of the room.

    Thank you for your feedback, we are glad to hear that you liked accommodation. We are however sorry to hear that you did not find the beds comfortable, all the beds are brand new, and all have mattress toppers and protectors, comfort is subjective, however I will be speaking to the company who provides them for hotels and see what they say. With regards to the bedrooms, there are sky lights in each room that needs to be opened to provide natural light as instructed in the welcome pack. We hope to see you again soon. UPDATE: All mattresses have been replaced and the previous TV has been replaced with a new, 42-inch flat-screen TV. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely holiday in Todridge Barn and would thoroughly recommend it as a comfortable and welcoming place to stay."

    Camilla was an efficient and friendly host and was very keen to help out with any queries. She provided a generous welcome basket of goodies when we arrived, which we really appreciated. The Barn was thoughtfully equipped with absolutely everything we needed, even including games; for example, we enjoyed several sessions of Articulate in front of a roaring log fire, all provided courtesy of the owners. Each of us had an en suite shower room and all the bedrooms were tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The surrounding countryside is stunning and the Barn is located in a peaceful spot, well away from main roads or villages. There is plenty to do in the area, and we ventured further afield too - to Alnwick Castle, Bamburgh Castle and a trip to Lindisfarne from Seahouses. If you are interested in Hadrian's Wall, Todridge Barn is definitely the place to be, as there are many Roman sites within an easy distance. We also had several meals out in Corbridge and Hexham, where there seems to be an abundance of excellent places to eat. We would definitely go back there again!

The property

Matfen 3.2 miles.

Resting in an idyllic rural location in the area of Great Whittington in Northumberland, this large and beautifully-finished barn conversion, lying on the owner's working farm, makes for a fabulous country stay.

Todridge Barn is the ideal choice for a group of six walkers, or a family who enjoy the outdoors, being within easy reach of the historic Hadrian's Wall and nearby to some great activities like Go Ape Matfen.

Park up on the ample gravelled drive before you step into the underfloor heating open-plan living space, a fantastic social hub for the group to gather in and relish the company of your loved ones.

Light the woodburning stove with some kindling and feel the warmth from it as you settle onto one of the soft sofas, with a TV with Freeview for entertainment, or simply enjoy some drinks with a hearty flow of conversation.

Be impressed beneath the spotlights by the striking kitchen, with a dark blue units contrasting well with the wood worktops and flooring, whilst integrated appliances lie hidden behind the cupboards, including a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

Gather around the dining table, which takes centre stage in this rich interior, and dine with your friends, making plans for the rest of your stay.

Discover the three lovely bedrooms upstairs beneath the traditional exposed beams holding up the apex ceilings, with beautiful features like the quality curtains and well-chosen furnishings.

All of the bedrooms offer a flexible layout thanks to the beds all being zip/link, so whether you're a party of three couples wanting three king-size beds, or a family needing two twin rooms for the little ones, you can find something to suit all.

Completing the property's interior are the three en-suite shower rooms benefitting each bedroom, with a classic marble-effect shower cubicle creating a luxury feel to freshen up in.

Take the time to sit out in the patio area where you can sip a morning coffee at the outdoor seating and contemplate the trip so far.

Head into the neighbouring village of Matfen to find a local shop and café, perfect for picking up any essentials, whilst the towns of Corbridge and Hexham a little further south can provide a wider selection.

Indulge in a spa day in the Grade II listed Matfen Hall, or delight in a day of golf on their superb 27-hole course with the beautiful grounds.

Discover an adventure in the treetops at Go Ape Matfen where you can travel through the canopy via the exciting rope course, not for those who don't enjoy heights!

An incredible activity not to be missed while you're in the area is to walk along the ancient Hadrian's Wall, found just a few miles from Todridge Barn, as well as being nearby the seven-foot tall Stob Stone, a prehistoric standing stone.

If you are looking for fine dining, the much publicized Michelin Star Restaurant Hjem is only 5.1 miles away, located in the small village of Wall.
