Stayed here for one night. In the middle of the country so nice & quiet. Lovely house, lovely owners & our bed was very comfy. Breakfast in the morning was tasty, quite a selection to choose from & plenty of jams to sample. Very nice stay.

Louise gives a really warm and personal welcome to her 18th century farmhouse. The farm is set in lovely countryside that you can walk in, but is only minutes from the A1 an so is very accessible for Gateshead and Newcastle, Durham, rural Northumberland and for the Angel of the North. The room was attractively and appropriately decorated and furnished... More

We were visiting friends in the Newcastle area and wanted somewhere "decent" to stay for three nights. We stayed the first night at the Best Western Gibside but quickly decided it wasn't for us. I had wanted to book Ridings Farm but there was no availability for three nights, it was half-term for many schools. We decided that we would... More

We picked Riding Farm because it is close to Beamish and Newcastle and we didn't want to be staying in a chain hotel. It was a great choice. We were in the Garden Room which has views in two directions. Big comfy bed and also a sofa for sitting on. The extra touches of tea, real coffee and fresh milk... More

My husband and I stayed at Riding Farm because it is near to Beamish Museum, which we wanted to spend two days visiting. We stayed in the Garden Room, which is lovely. There is a huge bed - super king size and very comfortable; some lovely pieces of furniture, a good sized on-suite and everything was immaculately clean. There is... More

We needed a place to stay for the family for a few days in the north east and found Riding Farm on Laterooms for a very reasonable price. On the run up to our stay we got a communication from Louise with directions and offer of discount vouchers to Beamish Museum, (much appreciated on both counts), upon our arrival Louise... More

We spent 7 days at Riding Farm in the Garden Room on a bed and breakfast basis as our base from which to explore both the local area (Beamish Museum, Tanfield Railway, Durham, Gateshead) and further afield (Bamburgh Castle, Cragside, Wallington, Seaton Deveral, Bowes Museum and more). Swayed by the positive reviews on this site, we hoped our plans would... More

Our weekend to visit our son in Newcastle - we wanted to stay close but not in a built up area. The B&B was perfect for us. And we took advantage of going to a place I always wanted to go to which was Beamish. Great breakfasts and a comfortable clean room - perfect.
