I booked here as my mum was keen to visit Beamish which is not far away at all. 10 minutes by car and Louise gave us a 25% discount voucher which was appreciated. We were booked into the main house for B+B and when we arrived we were upgraded to a cottage which was fab! It was really comfortable and... More

We stayed the night when at a wedding at Beamish, in one of the cottages. It was good value, the place was beautifully furnished, spotless, and comfortable. Breakfast is communal, in the farmhouse, but also lovely and really welcoming. Views of Newcastle across acres of countryside make the setting just so tranquil. Bed and breakfast with the sanctuary of your... More

I identified Riding Farm through Trip Advisor and could not be happier. Only a few minutes outside of Kibblesworth and at the end of a country lane, Riding farm is located in a peaceful and tranquil location only a short drive from all the amenities that city life offers. Hosts Louise and Angus are most welcoming, nothing appears to be... More

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

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

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.
