This wonderful barn conversion in the Northumberland village of Horsley sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

The Cowshed is a superb barn conversion in the pretty Northumberland village of Horsley between Corbridge and Newcastle-upon-Tyne. This single-storey barn conversion sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double with en-suite and a twin, as well as a bathroom. This cottage also has an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and a sitting room with woodburning stove. Outside there's off road parking for two cars and a lawned garden with furniture and barbecue. With the Hadrian's Wall long distance path only a mile away and a pub within walking distance makes The Cowshed an excellent base.


The quality of the fixtures, the comfort and the location of the cottage are first rate. Privacy is assured yet the owners were always available on site if needed.
Mr Fletcher

This is a relaxed cottage which was very comfortable and well appointed with a funky colour scheme. The cottage is in an ideal location to explore Northumberland. The owners were helpful but unobtrusive. We loved it.
Mrs Farrell

Fantastic cottage containing everything we needed for a family break of 1 week. Welcome pack was much appreciated. Great location for visits north south east and west. Warm, comfortable and spacious. Much thought had gone into providing books DVD's , tapes and games for evenings in. The huge range of information leaflets about the area was really helpful. The 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite) and 2 double bedrooms were a real plus. Appreciated the extras (toiletries) provided. Loved the Smeg pink fridge and double ovens. We have had experience of holiday cottages over the years, and this one is really the cr?me de la cr?me. Intend to book this again for next year.

This is an outstanding cottage. The Cowshed is generous in size, quirky and an absolute joy to stay in. We were talking about going back before we even left! Just gorgeous!

The Cowshed was very clean, warm and cosy. It was very well located for visiting areas in the North East and Northumberland. We have stayed in cottages before however this one far exceeded anything else. Simply perfect.
