These are eight very sympathetic conversions of one-time farm buildings within 36 acres of the Northumbria National Park, and each one feels private and self contained. All have baths, and almost all have shower too. There are deep-pile carpets, subtle lighting, solid beds (five-feet wide in some cases), expensive fabrics, excellent insulation, last-word kitchens. There’s an indoor leisure centre, a warm and inviting pool, an antique full-sized snooker table, a gym, solarium and games room.

The cottages range from a one bedroomed sleeping just 2, plus baby, to four cottages that sleep 4 and three that sleep 6 (one of those actually 4 ‘plus 2’). Two of the sleeps-six cottages have a communicating door, therefore sleeping up to twelve. All have baths, and almost all have shower too. Several have ensuite facilities; some have two bathrooms and several have a bathroom with a separate shower room. Some have farmhouse type kitchens with the dining area in the kitchen. There’s an indoor leisure centre, a warm and inviting pool, an antique full-sized snooker table, a gym, solarium and games room.

Holiday apartments at Seahouses (Farne House), in the same ownership, could make for a two-centre holiday.
