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. It stands 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 Stable has beautiful open beams with a cosy and easy to use gas 'wood burner' in an attractive stone fireplace. Light an airy rooms enhance the overall effect of being in this fantastic part of the English countryside.

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.

"Great barn, great location"

Lovely accommodation with a real touch of luxury, warm and friendly welcome. Great base for walking and fantastic scenery. Dog friendly and excellent ground floor facilities which suited our needs. Would love to stay again soon.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure meeting you. Do hope to see you again soon.

"One of the most comfortable Stables I have ever stayed in"

A very comfortable conversion providing lots of space and lovely beds and seating. Just as good as we remembered it from 4 years ago. A most spectacular area to visit , missed by most people who go to the lakes and northumberland (coast) and do not see the beauty of the North Pennines. We failed again to visit all the places we intended to go to - so we will have to return again - maybe next year.

Thank you for taking time to write such a lovely review. It was a pleasure having you return to Broadmea Stable. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay and we would be delighted if you would visit us again soon.

"Would return at every opportunity!"

Second time we have stayed here. Perfect location, and wonderful accommodation. Everything catered for, even down to the right amount of cutlery and dinnerware! Patricia and her husband are very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Not rented too many holiday properties over the years, but this is by far the best one ever! Highly recommend!

"Fantastic accommodation, decorated to the highest spec."

My husband and I (and a group of friends) stayed in the Stables on 12 July 2014 for my husbands birthday. We found the accommodation to be impeccably clean, modern (to the very highest spec.), beautiful surroundings, and we found our hosts Tricia and Paul extremely helpful and friendly. We have also stayed in the Barn conversion, also very spacious, modern and again impeccably clean. PERFECT for family gatherings and celebrations, would definitely go back!

"It would be difficult to find somewhere better,"

We had a very warm welcome to a stunning barn conversion with all mod cons .Excellent accomodation with plenty of room for all, Surrounding countryside is beautiful with a variety of walks, one is on an ex- railway providing easy walking for miles with stunning views. Local pub ( Just over a mile away) is friendly and welcoming, serving good food and quality real ales. The cottage owners are really helpful and not at all intrusive. Would love to go back and perhaps take advantage of the fishing on offer.
