“Magical!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our stay at the Goat Barn was wonderful. The location on The Sanctuary is fabulous and the children loved rushing out to feed the well cared for animals and playing on the swings and slides. The barn itself was very clean and spacious and we loved relaxing in the comfortable lounge and the kitchen was fabulous to cook and eat in. We also enjoyed the enclosed garden were the kids could play football and we enjoyed several barbecues. The owners were very welcoming and friendly; we cannot recommend a stay here highly enough and can't wait to go back!

“Lovely weekend”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our party was 6 adults, 2 children and a dog. The barn conversion is beautifully done and the layout is perfect for a group of people to relax and socialise together. The owners are very close but not at all intrusive. The other barn conversion is separate and does not overlook you. The is a lovely small play area right outside and the animal sanctuary is just yards away. The animals are well loved and friendly. This was perfect for a family weekend away. We too had a fab dat at druridge park and bay. The children played for hours on the lovely beach.

“Lovely barn conversion in peaceful surroundings”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were the first guests at the newly converted Goat barn. 4 adults, 2 teenagers and 1 dog.
Conversion has been done to very high standard, obviously everything was brand new for our arrival.
A car is essential as it's very rural, about a 20 min drive from Morpeth but other villages are nearer( widdrington station) has small co op , chippy etc.
Druridge bay beach is about 10/15 min drive, stunning and quiet sandy beach.
The sanctuary itself is just a few metres over a small patio area from the barn, the animals are friendly and well cared for. The owners are very friendly, their house is a few metres behind the barn but not overlooking it. There is also another rental property, the Donkey barn, a few metres away, but again not overlooking. We thoroughly enjoyed our few days here and would hope to return in the future.
