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.


Picture Perfect
Had the most relaxing week in beautiful Northumberland! The Cowshed exceeded all our expectations. The photographs don't do it justice. It's spacious, and yet still so cozy. It's been so tastefully renovated, . A fabulous mix of old and new. We loved its quirkyness, the artwork and all the little touches that make it feel like home. It was lovely to find a welcome hamper with Prosecco, coffee and tea & milk in the fridge! It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, plenty of lovely handsoaps and toiletries.. it was also spotlessly clean. Margaret is a lovely host and was very welcoming, reassuring us that if we needed anything then we only had to knock her door. Thank you again for a super holiday. We can?t wait to return, hopefully later in the year. Dee & Tony Newman.

From the moment we arrived we knew we were in a quality rental
On the edge of Northumbria with Hadrian's wall right on the door step. Maeket towns of Hexham and Corbridge just down the road. Newcastle is 20 minutes away and the glorious North East coast is 35 minutes drive, Also good for visiting Alnwick, Bamburgh and Seahouses. Generous welcome pack, including fresh eggs, milk, tea and coffee, and a bottle of Prosecco. Margaret was on hand if any problems. Plenty of kitchen equipment, the best we have found. The forget me cupboard is a nice touch.The property was warm and cosy, we didn't want to leave. Have booked again for May as it is that good.

Comfortable accommodation in a great central area for exploring Northumberland.

The cottage was more spacious than it appeared in the photos on the website. Everything about the cottage was brilliant and we would definitely go back and also be happy to recommend it to friends and family.

This is the best cottage we've stayed in for a while.
