Barn | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 12
This stunning barn conversion is situated in the beautiful, unspoilt South Tyne Valley on the Cumbria/Northumberland border. Skilfully undertaken and refurbished to a high standard the holiday property retains charm and character offering a mix of traditional structure and contemporary design. They stand proudly across the courtyard from the owner’s home and 1800-acre working sheep farm in the North Pennine Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The many footpaths (Pennine Way) and groomed cycle ways allow guests the freedom to explore the stonewalled fields and surrounding moorland. Trout and salmon fishing can be enjoyed on a quiet stretch of the South Tyne river running through the farm.
Broadmea is perfectly situated as a touring base for exploring a wealth of natural and historical treasures in the area. Hadrian’s Wall is only 8 miles away, with the Scottish Border and the Lake District 25 miles distant. Nearby Alston (5 miles), the highest market town in England, offers an interesting array of cafes, shops, pubs, steam engine railway and 18-hole golf. Cycle hire, pony trekking and trout farm fishing (15 miles). There is a village pub (1 mile) with good food.
The barn has a fantastic open plan layout providing a relaxing and comfortable environment. With natural stone and open beams the true character of the building is brought to the fore. The beamed vaulted ceiling incorporates a spacious dining area with seating for 12, a large kitchen and a split mezzanine with two galleried sitting areas which overlook the dining area below. From the patio you can view the glorious countryside whilst listening to the fenced stream burbling at the bottom of the garden.

"Hen Weekend "spoiled""
NO faults with property or location but we had booked for a Hen Party weekend, Arrived at 3pm on the Friday and were all home by 1pm on the Sunday. We had a good night on the Friday, dancing singing e… More
Thank you for your review. I am pleased you were happy with the Barn accommodation and location. With regard to the noise, my decision to send a polite text came after more than six hours of loud music and singing which I do not have a problem with. However, as a responsible owner and as midnight approached, it was appropriate to request the noise be reduced out of respect for others nearby who were also entitled to an enjoyable weekend. It is regrettable that members of your group disagreed. In my experience, all my large groups be they hen parties, birthday parties or other, happily show consideration with regard to noise levels and still thoroughly enjoy their stay. In fact, in eight years of business, I've never had a complaint and all those who've submitted reviews would highly recommend. I look forward to welcoming large groups whatever the occasion.

"Beautiful well-equipped holiday let in the heart of the countryside"
Stayed here for a weekend - 3 families with kids and dog. The property is great for a big party to socialize with a large, open-plan kitchen/dining area and separate sitting areas. The house is very well equipped and well furnished and the under floor heating meant it was lovely and warm!
The location was great for us to relax and go for walks. The scenery was beautiful with the autumnal colours and the river close by. Wouldn't suit if you want shops etc within walking distance but wasn't an issue for us.
It also has the added bonus that the owner lives on the same site if any issues arise (none did).
Would definitely recommend.

"Wonderful stay had by all, beautiful barn , would highly recommend."
We had a lovely family reunion at the barn, a surprise 80th birthday party, it was so comfortable and very spacious and had everything we needed. The location was great and had a nice walk along the old railway for the dogs. The sauna was great too, lovely relaxing break, will definitely be back . Thanks again for everything.

"A haven in the middle of remote Cumbria"
Such a stunning barn conversion. Excellent accommodation for a large group with plenty of space for everyone. Stylish and furnished to a very high standard - well deserving its 5-star rating.
Some great walks in the area with stunning scenery. Great food at the nearby Kirkstyle Inn and lovely tea rooms in nearby Alston.
