The Old Barn

Budle Barns, near Bamburgh

Elegant furnishings amidst a wealth of original features await visitors to The Old Barn. It was simply that – an old barn – now transformed into a tasteful and luxurious holiday retreat. The 3 bedrooms all enjoy ensuite facilities, so the practicalities are well taken care of, leaving guests to appreciate the rich colour palette, the divine soft furnishings and to relax into a holiday to remember.

And should you ever wish to leave the house, you’ll find Bamburgh village with its castle, beach and lovely little shops, just a few minutes away by car.  Holiday sorted.

Prices and Availability

Booking options

Monday 1st December

The Old Barn is available for booking on the following durations.


Situated around 2 miles from Bamburgh castle, The Old Barn is bordered by an organic grain farm on one side and open countryside to the three other elevations with views North to Budle Bay, Lindisfarne Castle and Holy Island from the site. There are some outstanding walks nearby leading to the open fields and coastal footpaths. The renovation of this cluster of farm buildings was completed in January 2017 and there are 10 holiday homes in total in this beautifully executed development.

The Old Barn is near to the road leading to the farm but the only traffic you will notice is the odd tractor or farm vehicle. Can be booked with neighbouring cottage Mulberry Cottage (sleeps 2) for larger gatherings.

Candid Comments

No lawned garden, but a lovely private walled courtyard for sitting out.

Old Barn kids bed

Stunning inside. It has the real WOW factor

Loved the quiet location and the feeling that we were really on holiday. The luxury touches were lovely and the kids bedroom was a delight. The kids loved it and we had no trouble getting them to bed at night.

Amazing Amazing Amazing. Coastal Retreats. You've done it again

Thanks for a lovely holiday and for sorting our lost key problem so quickly. We always feel looked after when we holiday with you. Thanks again for the lovely welcome goodies. I'm using the bag all of the time and everyone is admiring it
