Prices and Availability
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.

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
