    Beautiful location and appointment. Beds, chairs, so comfortable. Thoughtfully chosen and generous 'welcome pack'. One of the very best furnished cottages we've even been to ... and we've done scores of them. 10/10!!

    Thank you so much for your fantastic review! Absolutely delighted you love The Byre as much as we do ! Really hope to welcome you again Kindest Yorkie x Property Owner

    Thank you so very much for your fantastic review. So delighted you enjoyed your stay an our animals enjoyed meeting you. Hope to welcome you again soon. Kindest Yorkie. Property Owner

  • "My daughter and I had a wonderful week exploring Northumberland with Tia our cockapoo."

    The beds and sofas were so comfortable and the house is so well equipped with everything you could possibly need. We were pleasantly surprised when we opened the fridge to see bacon, sausages, eggs, butter, milk and fresh eggs. How nice they were too and from a local farm. What a lovely touch! The garden was so pretty at night when the sun was going down and a sun trap. We adored the beautiful horses in their paddocks, they were very friendly and came to the fence to say hi each evening on our walk. The house is in a beautiful setting surrounded by fields and horses in their paddocks, it was so peaceful and just what we were looking for. We met the owners dogs a couple of times, one was a right little character who thought she was a guard dog which was so funny because she was weeny but a sweet little thing! Thank you for a really enjoyable week at The Byre.

    Thank you girls for your fantastic review! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The Byre & that you had a really great stay. So pleased you enjoyed our breakfast pack !! Yes our dogs are very inquisitive! They enjoy meeting friends in the Cottages ! Really hope you’ll come & visit us again soon ! Thank you again Kindest Yorkie Property Owner

  • "What a lovely place."

    Considering we were last minute in booking you wouldn’t have known it when we walked in to The Byre. The place was immaculate! Comfortable accommodation which is both homely and practical. The coffee machine and milk frother were such a lovely touch - when on holiday you actually have time for a ‘proper’ coffee! The Byre is a great base to explore the coast, the historical houses and castles, Kielder Forest and of course The Wall. We were out and about every day and loved coming back to our home from home. Popular with the children and dog too! The owner was helpful and friendly. Fantastic stay.

    Hannah & family thank you for such a fabulous review I’m so glad you all had such a great stay with us and found everything you needed. So glad you enjoyed the coffee machine. We think it’s a nice extra to add in providing Full strength & Decaff capsules Happy to always add a favourite flavour in on request!! Really look forward to welcoming you back to start with us again Kindest Yorkie ❤️ Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay and perfect location to explore Northumberland."

    Could benefit from a thicker rug in the living area as hard floors and to swap the two rooms as the twin room is beautiful. It should be the master.

    Thank you and delighted you enjoyed your stay The beautiful rugs over hardwood floors are there because we accept dogs It would be extremely difficult to clean if we had thicker rugs or indeed carpet down. Some dogs leave a lot of hair !! Regarding the rooms Thank you for the comment regarding the bedrooms. I agree the twin room is stunning !! Fantastic views ! Sadly the twin beds are too tight in the double room as it has the fitted wardrobe & vanity sink unit in there and you’d loose the dressing table too Hope you’ll visit us again soon. Property Owner

  • "What a wonderful property and setting."

    A lovely breakfast pack waiting on arrival and the most gorgeous cake too! We would definitely recommend this property for a relaxing break. The open plan lounge, dinning and kitchen facilities were great and the large wrap around (and fully enclosed) garden was just what our little dog needed. Lots to do nearby and a couple of great pubs/restaurants just 20 minutes away. Thank you for a brilliant stay.

  • "The Byre is a lovely, quiet location from where to base your holiday."

    We found it clean, homely and welcoming with a lovely breakfast hamper to greet us. The large fridge in the utility was very useful as an overflow for larger items, The double bed has fabulous bedding, it’s so soft and comfortable - like sleeping in a giant marshmallow! The garden was perfect for us and our two dogs who very much enjoyed the space. Cresswell beach was our favourite and only 30 minutes away with The Drift Cafe which serves lovely food. We would definitely recommend The Byre to anyone who asked us about our stay, and hope we can come back another time. Thank you Yorkie xx

    Lovely interior, all rooms very impressive and of high quality. Great garden which is secure for dogs. Beautiful surroundings with fantastic walks, so relaxing to be able to let the dogs wander off without their leads, they loved it! Great to chat with the horses too! Owners extremely helpful, and a lovely breakfast pack and croissants set up for us. Would thoroughly recommend for a relaxing holiday, a real escape. Supermarkets a distance away but just makes you more organised!

    Thank you so much. I’m delighted you enjoyed your stay. Was a pleasure to host you & your lovely dogs. Hope we see you again soon. Just a note for future guests re supermarkets - WAITROSE ASDA SAINSBURY’S & TESCO deliver to The Byre Property Owner

The property

Whalton 9 miles.

Located rurally in Longwitton near Whalton, Northumberland is The Byre, a delightful, two-bedroom barn conversion.

Enjoying far-reaching countryside views, an enclosed garden, and a contemporary interior, The Byre offers the ideal base for a family escape, resting between both the shoreline and Northumberland National Park.

Travel through the working farm to meet three off-road parking spaces.

Head towards the stone-fronted exterior of The Byre, firstly reaching the handy utility room, complete with space to kick off your boots and hang up your coats.

Continue through to the open-plan living space, adorned with A-frame beamed ceilings, a light-flooded feel, plush seating, a lovely woodburning stove, a dining table for four, and a fully-equipped kitchen; use this space to prepare meals, dine, socialise and unwind after a day of exploration.

If you'd prefer an alfresco affair, the garden is fully enclosed and private, where you can set the outdoor table and enjoy mealtimes as the sun sets over the surrounding fields.

Catch some rest in one of two bedrooms on offer, including a well-appointed double, and a delightful twin with access to the garden; both are complete with homely accessories and plush bedding, and are serviced by the spacious bathroom.

Awaken to an itinerary brimming with exploration, starting off with discovering the pretty grounds of Bolam Lake Country Park, or heading to Belsay Hall Quarry Garden, where you can also tour the interior of the hall, steep in history and beauty; Shortflatt Tower is also nearby, a popular wedding venue, making The Byre a perfect base for guests.

Continue into Morpeth for further attractions, including the Morpeth Chantry Museum, practise your swing at the Morpeth Golf Club, or discover Northumberland Zoo, a firm family favourite.

Round off your break with a day of hiking, traversing through the open countryside to reach Northumberlandia, or head into the national park, whilst the coastline and many golden beaches are within driving distance.

Experience all of this at The Byre.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
