    “Excellent property and very comfortable.”

    The owner is very approachable, friendly and personable. I would recommend anybody with a love of the countryside to visit. A quality place.

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.

For attractions, head to Belsay, where you can tour Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, or locate Kirkley and the Kirkley Hall Zoological Gardens. Travelling into the town, fill your itinerary with a visit to Morpeth Chantry Museum, a round of golf at Morpeth Golf Club, or a stroll around the pretty grounds of Carlisle Park.
