Description from owner

Formerly a byre at Longsyke Farm, The Goose Barn (4 STAR GOLD QUALITY IN TOURISM AWARD) was meticulously restored in 2010 to provide beautiful, luxurious self-catering accommodation in the heart of the rugged, unspoilt Northumberland countryside. Overlooking fields, and with a totally private garden for guests, The Goose Barn is the perfect rural retreat, a place to relax and unwind.

The barn's beautiful original features, such as flagged floors and exposed beams have been carefully restored. There is every modern convenience, including underfloor heating, and a wood-burning stove; French windows open out onto a secluded terrace where meals can be taken al fresco or a barbecue can be enjoyed.

The Farm is a haven for wildlife; its rare upland hay meadows, a botanist's dream, are filled with wild flowers in the summer months; curlews, snipe, owls and redshank are just some of the birds that can be seen in our fields. The Goose Barn is exceptionally secluded for a converted farm building,

The Goose Barn is exceptionally secluded for a converted farm building, facing away from the farmhouse itself, giving guests a rare privacy and uninterrupted views: Hadrian's Wall itself is your horizon – you can watch the sun rise and set across its crags.

The Northumberland region

Northumberland is the least populated English county, a tranquil haven of unspoilt vistas and landscapes rich in natural beauty and historic heritage. Famous for its Roman archaeology, the World Heritage site of Hadrian's Wall, salmon fishing and unspoilt wilderness, Northumberland is increasingly well known as a world class destination for mountain biking (Kielder Forest) and golf (Matfen and Slaley Halls)

Plan a day out to the beautiful sandy beaches of the North Northumberland Heritage Coast, visit the celebrated Farne Islands or explore the world-famous Alnwick Castle and Gardens – they can be reached by car in just over an hour. Kielder Water and Kielder Forest, with its incomparable walks, excellent mountain bike trails and watersports facilities are easily reached from The Goose Barn.

Visit the Farmers' Market at Greenhead, three miles to the west; discover the enchanting Lanercost Priory with its Pre-Raphaelite stained glass a mile or so further on. Or explore the historic market towns of Hexham and Corbridge to the west. Central Newcastle-upon-Tyne, with its buzzy quayside, celebrated theatres, Baltic Exchange art gallery, fine restaurants and Geordie hospitality is only 40 minutes drive away and well worth a visit. To the West lies Carlisle with a full range of shops, cinemas, museums and restaurants. Penrith, Keswick and the northern Lake District are within a one-hour drive from the Goose Barn.

Haltwhistle

The Goose Barn is situated inside the Northumberland National Park, in an area historically known as 'Once Brewed'. On the horizon and less than a mile away, is the spectacular jagged outline of Hadrian's Wall. This is an ancient, unspoilt, historic landscape and traces of the Romans are everywhere. One of our fields, now the home of ground-nesting birds, was once the site of a Roman aquaduct.

The most thrilling and important Roman sites along the Wall – Vindolanda, Housesteads, Chesters and Birdoswald – are in easy reach of our farm. Immerse yourself in history at the Roman Army Museum at Walltown, explore the extraordinary riverside Roman baths at Chesters – they are both a five minute drive, or a morning's walk away. Or catch the award-winning Hadrian's Wall Bus from the Once Brewed Visitor's Centre and travel the entire length of the Wall.

There are two pubs, both serving excellent food, within two miles – it was one of these that gave the area its memorable and unusual name. Further afield, there are innumerable historic villages and towns to explore, either to the east along the beautiful protected Tyne Valley, or west towards the Lake District and the delights of Cumbria. The nearest small town for provisions is Haltwhistle, designated 'The Centre of Britain'; just four miles away, it can be reached by road, or on foot from Goose Barn, via the newly restored Burn Gorge walking trail. It boasts a modern open-air swimming pool to be enjoyed when the weather is kind!

The nearest large town is Hexham (20 minutes drive), with its famous Abbey: there you can find a cinema, a golf course, a picturesque weekly market, and top-quality supermarkets, including Marks & Spencer, Tesco and Waitrose. Both Waitrose and Tesco will deliver to the Goose Barn if required. Horse riding can be arranged for guests at the local stables, two miles away in Bardon Mill. Shooting and fly fishing are available in season and coarse fishing is available locally.

“Little piece of Northumbrian heaven”

Reviewed 18 Jan 2013

We booked The Goose Barn over New Year with another couple for a relaxing getaway and it was definitely that. Lucy was great and the homemade treats awaiting our arrival were a lovely touch, and very tasty! The Barn was spotless and very warm with underfloor heating and a wood burning stove - we wish we could have used it more but we were just too toasty. The countryside scenery is to die for with no one else in sight. Hadrian's wall is right on the doorstep plus plenty of other sites. The Twice Brewed Inn does great food and is so welcoming. We'd all definitely go back there if even to buy meat from Lucy's stock as it's delicious. Big thumbs up from us.
