Henshaw Barn is a luxurious barn conversion, serenely situated in the tranquil village of Henshaw - a mere 4 miles from Hadrian's Wall and within walking distance of Vindolanda. The picturesque market towns of Hexham and Corbridge are comfortably close, and the vibrant cities of Newcastle and Carlisle are well within reach. Sympathetically restored and oozing character and charm, Henshaw Barn has two delightful guest bedrooms, with supremely comfortable beds and quality bed linen (one ensuite, the other with private bathroom facilities) - both have stunning views - and ready acess to a cosy, guest sitting room. WI/FI is freely available. Guests start the day with a great breakfast - and superb evening meals are available on request.

Pauline and John are the perfect hosts. We stayed here 2 years ago and recently returned for a 3 night stay for my wife’s birthday. We were privileged to discover that although they wer officially closed, they were happy to see us again. John’s cooking is amazing. Everything was

What a super start to the new season! Thankyou so much for your very lovely review. And although you were 'out of season' so to speak - you were returning guests - and it was a real pleasure to see you again - and be given the chance to contribute and be part of the birthday celebrations. And what a lovely time we had....low key, convivial, pleasant and relaxing....and very much OUR privilege to be able to welcome you back.......And to know that 'everything was perfect' is the absolute best. THANKYOU! We hope you will keep in touch, and we send our thanks and warmest wishes to you both, Pauline and John.

I stayed at Henshaw Barn in November 2018 for 5 nights whilst I visited my daughter who lives nearby. Pauline and John were the perfect hosts and from the moment I arrived I felt at home. The accommodation is absolutely excellent; beautiful, comfortable, spotlessly clean and

And in turn - our thanks to you for posting such a fabulous review following upon your late season visit. And as you were travelling alone on that occasion, and we had no other guests at the time, we are glad that you quickly felt very much 'at home'. It was lovely to share some time with you - to meet your daughter - and to learn about your future plans. Such exciting and happy times ahead! And perhaps you WILL manage that second visit..........when it would be such a treat to see you again. It was our good fortune to meet you - and we very much appreciate your kind and gracious comments, and your glowing recommendations. Our thanks and best wishes, Pauline and John.

We stayed at Henshaw Barn during a break from Hadrian's Wall and arrived exhausted to be given strong tea and home-made scones. Just what we needed! That set the tone of the whole stay, with comfortable accommodation, superb food and a lovely welcoming ambience. We will

You contacted us from 'down under' well ahead of what became your two night stay with us, and it was such a joy to have your company so late in the season, especially as you did not regret staying the extra night - which then enabled you to expand on your original quite limited itinerary (a result of your initial quite tight schedule.) And what a lovely, and very relaxing time we had - and it was so nice to find how very taken you were with all things Roman, and with the majesty and grandeur of the surrounding area. We are so pleased that you felt comfortable and at ease in our home.........and certainly, it would be a great pleasure to see you again were you able to return....... Our warmest thanks for taking the time to write such a positive and upbeat review. With all our good wishes, Pauline and John.

I stayed earlier this year with Pauline and John and promised them a review but all I am going to say is my whole experience was excellent: from their initial welcome, the cleanliness of my room, the quality of the decor and fittings, and the tasty breakfast with its ample

I must immediately apologise for taking so long to respond to your lovely review. I have a very clear recollection of your visit, even though it was months ago. Sadly your busy schedule only enabled you a brief one night stay with us........but it was a real pleasure to meet you. And taking on board your wealth of experience as you transport visitors to so many wonderful places of interest within the U.K. it was a very special pleasure to be the recipient of your kind words - and very gracious of you to write such a direct, sincere, and honest review. With many thanks, and all good wishes from both of us. Pauline and John.

My daughter and I took a break from hiking Hadrian's Wall at Henshaw B&B, and the extra day was like heaven! Pauline and John were extraordinary hosts, making us feel very much at home, with great conversation and outstanding meals, the atmosphere very inviting and comfortable.

Heaven.....gosh! And one of the 'highlights' of your 3 week stay in the UK! Gosh! But we are delighted that you and your daughter so much enjoyed your stay with us - and that we were able to provide a brief and welcome respite from walking the wall! And it was such a great pleasure to meet you both; you were such convivial company; and it was lovely to learn something of your life back home. Many, many thanks for posting such a warm and generous review. And should you pay a return visit to the UK, then it would be a real treat to see you again. All our best wishes, Pauline and John.
