Charming coffee shop whose owner was inviting some New Zealand holiday makers to her families farm for a bar-b-q because of how she was looked after when she was in New Zealand. There is an array of trinkets and goodies for the home which are reasonably priced considering the quality and uniqueness. Don't leave without trying the cakes!!

In a word, beautiful! Primarily a shop or perhaps l should say an Aladdin's cave of wonderful things, with the added advantage of delicious coffee & tempting cakes to help you along the way in deciding what to buy. The staff are polite & helpful, the atmosphere relaxing, the byre & outside seating beautifully designed. Loved it, especially the ginger... More

This is one of those little gems that you just happen to come across whilst driving the many country roads in Nortrhumberland. They do a nice range of home baked cakes, coffess and teas. There is also a little gift shop attached with some unusual items. Not cheap, but nice.

Popped in here having passed it a few times. Bit odd really. Lots of expensive things in a coffee shop. The coffee wasn't great so I still don't really understand why the place was there ! Hey Ho..

Visited Eleanor's 3 times during a week's holiday. Coffee/cappuccino/latte/mocha all superb as are the cakes. A very interesting shop to browse as well, out-of-the-ordinary gifts to be found here. Very friendly staff, lovely to sit outside in the sun. Thoroughly recommended ,we'll be back again.

Haven't visited Eleanor's Byre for over a year and was delighted to discover it as fresh and lovely as ever. A slightly different layout since last year, but the same charming, friendly service, quite delicious tea and cakes and the same discerning taste of decor and gifts. Quite one of the loveliest little places I ever visit. Somewhat surprised by... More

Sadly, what looks like a nice place for coffee and cake and a great range of goods in the shop area, is completely spoiled by the rude, unfriendly and unwelcoming woman running the shop. We visited with my elderly disable parents and have never encountered such poor customer service anywhere else. None of us would recommend this place, other than... More

A great place for coffee with cakes with a difference and they are all delicious, especially when eaten in the courtyard surrounded by fantastic lavender bushes. After eating there is a great shop with unusual irresistible gifts for all. We bought some quirky cuff-links and a beautiful candle in a terracotta pot.Definately worth a visit. We will be returning, very... More
