A delightful, 18th Century detached stone barn conversion full of character and providing stylish, spacious and comfortable accommodation for up to four people.

This is a stunning detached stone barn conversion that has been beautifully restored to a very high standard by the owners. The open plan interior has a light and airy feel with the original roof trusses and a natural limestone floor retained as original features. The sleek modern kitchen has granite worktops and an impressive ‘Lacanche’ French range cooker. A Scandinavian wood-burning stove separates the dining space from the sitting area and provides a cosy feel to the room. There is a luxurious bathroom and two bedrooms. An added bonus is the utility room. Outside there is a large lawn with outdoor games, a patio with garden furniture and a barbecue. This is an opportunity to experience a unique holiday home that is a fabulous base to explore the stunning countryside that Northumbria has to offer.


The location of the cottage was excellent; easy access to both the coastal landmarks and the national park. We had a very relaxing break.
Mr Price

Great location and great standard of accommodation. Couldn't recommend it more and have already told our friends.
Mr Duffitt

The location and quiet aspect of the cottage was excellent. Access to the owner was good and his knowledge of the area and local amenities was really helpful. The cottage was very comfortable and helped us to relax and really enjoy this beautiful part of the country.
Mrs Standen

Great place to stay and explore the region. The owners were very welcoming. We enjoyed our stay.

My wife booked Coft Cottage in Northumbria at the last minute for a Birthday treat for the two of us. Having young children we could only get away for one night but immediately upon arriving we were made to feel welcome. Jeremy and Elaine , the owners , had gone out of their way and bought my wife a bottle of wine and a Birthday card , which were waiting for us when we arrived. Jeremy popped over and explained how everything worked and asked if we had any plans , we said that we might have a walk into the nearest village for drinks and a meal, he explained that due to the recent flooding , the ground was soaked and offered to drop us off and return later on that evening to collect us. Such is the gentleman's genuine kindness .The cottage itself is simply stunning , it is generously proportioned and exquisitely decorated throughout. Whilst it looks like it came straight from the pages of a glossy magazine , it is so well furnished with its fixtures and fittings that you feel totally at home in its countryside comfort. The modern , stylishly-simple kitchen has everything that you would need for your stay (long or short ) and the cottage has a great range of dvd, blu rays , books and boardgames to keep any family entertained. There are 2 bathrooms /toilets (ideal for families with small children ) and both are immaculately spotless , as are the 2 well sized bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin). The double bed was amazingly comfortable and guaranteed a great nights sleep. The rest of the cottage comes very well equipped with everything you may need for a few days or an extended visit. The property also boasts a centre-piece wood burner and a very efficient central heating system. My wife loved our time there and it really did make her Birthday one to remember. Our only regret was that our stay couldn't have been longer. We would definitely recommend Croft cottage to anyone who wants a relaxing , enjoyable holiday with perfect hosts. Thank you both for making our short stay so special.
