Traditional beauty

This delightful detached property overlooks the Ingram Valley and St Michaels, an 11th century church, to the north and open hills to the south. As a three-bedroom luxury holiday cottage, it is a perfect choice for a self catering family or small group holiday in Northumberland, and was chosen by Visit Britain to set the example for its nationwide quality assessment scheme.

Built in the traditional style of an old Northumbrian farmstead, Barley Mill exudes period detail, with wooden flooring and tiling throughout, exposed beams, and at its heart a beautifully appointed farmhouse kitchen with granite worktops, American fridge freezer, traditional Belfast sink, cooker / hob, beech workstation, window seat, and a split stable door into its own enclosed garden.

Relax outdoors

The lounge is south-facing, with full-height windows and a door leading to the garden and patio, complete with teak garden furniture. Here, you can enjoy those summer evenings, sipping wine beneath the stars and listening to the sounds of the countryside beyond. There is a 40 inch flat-screen wall mounted television and DVD, and beyond the main lounge you will find a separate snug complete with sandstone slab floor, forge fireplace and log-burning stove – an ideal spot in which to relax and lose yourself in a good book. There is also a shower room with wc on the ground floor.

The first floor features a spectacular main bedroom with a king-size carved four-poster, an original working Victorian open fireplace and a south-facing arched window. The en-suite bathroom has an air bath and two doors, thus offering either private or family use. Two further twin bedrooms are located on this floor, one with a choice of twin beds or a super-king-size bed.

Thanks for making our stay so memorable! You could not have done more to make us comfortable. We had a lovely time and it was wonderful to relax in front of the log burner - such an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. We look forward to seeing you in the summer when our little girl can walk - she will love the swings and walks in the country. Would recommend to anyone.

Wow! Its almost as if we've been holding our breath since leaving the A1 and heading up the A697. Nothing could have been any nicer during our fabulous week, our first in Northumberland.  The people, the places, the cottage and even the weather have been absolutely perfect. We have to agree with at least one previous comment about the delightful lack of traffic. We didn't think anywhere like this still existed in England. One week is nowhere near enough to even scratch the surface, so we will certainly be back. Very rarely do you find somewhere you feel deserves more stars than its been awarded. This is a real gem of a place - well done Graham & Trysha and thank you for making it all possible.
