We stayed here for 4 nights over Easter weekend. The whole family had a great time despite the wet weather you get this time of the year. The hot tub was just the pickup we needed after our long days enjoying the local activities. We relaxed in there for hours before transferring to a cosy night around the wood burner. The barn was suitable for the whole family, the kids would take themselves off the play area then we'd feed the animals. The grounds even provided a great setting for the Easter Bunny to leave Easter Eggs for the kids to find. It was very comfortable, even my mother who suffers severe arthritis had no complaints, which is unheard of.
It's in an ideal location, with attractions of Holy Island, Bamburgh and Alnwick Castles to the North and Beamish Museum to the South.
I'd highly recommend a holiday here.
We had a wonderful time at the Donkey Barn. Cottage feel with rustic exposed beams, stone fire place in living room, great decor with lots of atmosphere. Spacious for our family and friends to stay. A park just outside and horses and goats, our extended family and friends loved visiting.
Kim was very helpful and friendly, would highly recommend a stay here!!
Good location...barn converted to reasonable standard.....well equipped....bathrooms nice, good showers.....bit disappointed as "hot tub" was in fact an inflatable lazy spa....beds not really comfortable. ..sofa bed leg broke and we had to support with books....do buble bed poorly repaired with cable ties hence really sqeaky and uncomfortable. ...twin beds just acceptable but not very comfortable...childrens bunks were fine....owners were made aware of these issues during stay and made every effort to find solutions.....however we did have a lovely weekend thankyou
