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. Jump in the car and spend the day in the fabulous city of Newcastle, where you can catch the changing colours of the Millenium Bridge from the Quayside, get inspired by remarkable artwork at Laing Art Gallery, browse the stalls at Grainger Market, or choose from a large selection of bars, clubs and pubs for an evening of celebration. Gather your loved ones for a memorable stay at Barnacre.
