This was our second visit to Riding Farm. It's a great base for accessing the best the North East has to offer. Last year we stayed in Millers Barn, which was great. However this year Millers Barn was already booked, so I plumped for Riding Cottage. Again we were very happy with our choice. It has the added bonus of... More

We live in the south east but regularly visit the north east to see family. Over the years we have stayed in many different cottages so we're really pleased to discover Riding Farm. It's location was perfect for us, barely 4 miles from the A1 so really easy to get around, yet the farm is rural enough so you feel... More

I had been in touch by e mail and arranged to arrive at 3 pm with no problems at all. We had booked Beamish Cottage and were made very welcome by Angus and Louise. There was milk, tea, coffee, flapjack and chocolates waiting for us as well as bottled water. Nothing was too much trouble for Angus and both him... More

Our holiday at Granary Barn didn’t get off to a great start. We arrived OK, but there was no one to meet us and give us the key. Mine host was out delivering her daughter to swimming lessons. A kind lady from one of the other barns told us that there should be a key under a concrete animal outside... More

We stayed at Bowes Barn for four nights and had absolutely everything we needed in a lovely newly built well appointed barn. Angus and Louise were most welcoming and gave us lots of useful bits of information for our stay. Thank you Louise for getting our breakfast provisions and for providing two lovely evening meals that we thoroughly enjoyed. We... More

This is the best equipped self catering accommodation that we have stayed at. On arrival, we found that Pig Run Barn was immaculate. We had received an upgrade from Bowes Barn which was a nice surprise. We were very comfortable and slept well. The weather during our stay was extraordinarily hot and fortunately we had brought our own fan. Louise... More

We rented Granary Barn which is a well converted section of an L shaped farm building. The interior is great comfortable seats and beds, well fitted kitchen etc and really nice owners so all in all that is great. The only downside to this accommodation is the lack of privacy and the exterior area. Because the former L shaped farm... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we are glad you found the cottage comfortable. Granary Barn is one cottage within a converted barn, as it was an old farm building we were limited by planning restrictions on how we were able convert it into a holiday cottage.
