Incredible Holiday & Fantastic Host

The Old Barn is incredible, a beautiful conversion finished to a very high standard in the most idillic location on a farm. The photos here do not do it justice. The Barn is much bigger than we anticipated and bedrooms spacious with comfortable beds. The kitchen is well equipped and everywhere is beautifully furnished and dressed, the showers are are fantastic (water pressure issues mentioned in the previous review were rectified, the owner had kindly contacted us directly to inform us prior to our arrival). The owner was welcoming and very thoughtful, a pleasure to meet. Our family of 6 adults, an infant and dog could not have wanted more and didn’t want to leave. Waking up to see rabbits in the fields and the farm animals out in the yard was perfect, with plenty of space to run free and walks to the nearby river for the dog. This is the perfect countryside escape, Northumberland attractions are very accessible through beautiful scenery but also Hole House is a perfect location to hide away in and relax.

Luxury in a lovely location

We were a family group of six adults and two young children and this property could not have been any more appropriate for us. It is spacious with luxury decor and facilities throughout. Everything is new, clean and in very good condition. There are toys, games and books for children in the house as well as outdoor playthings for young children. It is a quiet location with an outdoor eating area that has lovely views. Our only minor issue was that the water pressure is sometimes poor upstairs, probably when water is being drawn elsewhere.
