“Lovely property for those looking to get away from it all...”
I visited Broadmea with a group of friends ranging in age from 5 to late sixties and we all enjoyed staying in a lovely building. The multi-level layout brought a few challenges with it, but generally it's one of the best properties we've stayed in over ten years worth of group holidays. It was clean, comfortable and warm with pretty much everything we required to hand. Even in late October there was plenty to do locally, with the Killhope Lead Mining Museum, South Tynedale Railway, Vindolanda and Roman Army Museum all being within half an hour's drive. Newcastle is only an hour away if you fancy a trip to the big city too. We can also highly recommend the Kirkstyle Inn for food, although you might want to take a doggy-bag, as the portions are huge! The one frustration was the slow speed of internet access, but this is due to the rural location and there's little that can be done to change that... in fact it's one of the things that attracted us to this property in the first place.
“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.
“Breath taking, amazing place.”
A beautiful place, we stayed here for my 30th Birthday celebrations with family, inc my little 5 yr old girl and close friends and we all had an amazing time, the Barn is amazing with everything you will ever need and the finished to a very high standard. We are actually thinking of comng back for my fathers 60th later in the year or with the family at Christmas maybe. The owners are really nice and welcoming and easily approachable.
