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.

We stayed in Bowes cottage for a week and found it very comfortable. Downstairs had a kitchen diner and living area with everything we could need. Upstairs had a double bedroom and a single which we used for storing our luggage. Bathroom had a bath and good shower, space a bit tight but we got used to manoeuvring around. WI-FI... More

We stayed in the green room in the farmhouse for 2 nights for the great north run. It is very remote as you would expect a farm to be. The long narrow country lane approach was extremely muddy, my husband is cleaning the car as I write! We were made welcome by the owners and they were helpful in recommending... More

Stayed in one of the chalet type rooms, very well made with all the conveniences of a small bungalow. Close by Beamish which was our intent, long lane taking you into the country with the farm at the end. Nice to see a working farm and be in the centre of a busy farmhouse experience. Would recommend this to anyone... More
