The detail

Venture deep into the beautiful Northumberland National Park and you’ll find an off-grid escape in the form of a stylish barn conversion. Situated 1,400 ft above sea level and surrounded by the rugged hills of the Upper Coquet Valley, this is a perfect location for those looking to get away from it all and relax. The remote location means that Leyland Barn is not connected to the national grid and relies on solar and wind power. There is a wood-burning stove stocked with logs from the surrounding forest and fresh water supplied from a borehole. The location also makes it one of the best places to stargaze in Europe and is located within the Northumberland Dark Sky Park.

Leyland Barn features an open-plan living space, designed to make you feel at home straight away and also take advantage of the stunning views over the Upper Coquet Valley. Cosy sofas and armchairs are gathered around the wood burner, the perfect place to put your feet up and relax after a day exploring the valley. There’s also a dining space with room for four and a fully equipped kitchen. A door leads out onto the patio and garden where you can soak up a bit of sunshine on warmer days.

The master bedroom has been furnished using neutral tones creating a relaxing atmosphere and has a sumptuous king-size bed with crisp, fresh bed linen. The second bedroom can be configured as a twin or a super-king room. The family bathroom features a bathtub, perfect for a good long soak after a long walk or bike ride through the Northumberland National Park. There’s also a shower and the bedrooms and bathroom have underfloor heating.

The location is a haven for walkers and cyclists who just have to step out of the front door to find an endless number of trails exploring the national park. For the more adventurous, there are some fantastic climbing and bouldering opportunities nearby at Simonside and Rothbury, while those in search of a more relaxing experience can pre-book treatments with Nicola’s Holistic Mobile Spa. There are charming villages to explore in the local area and Thropton has a 300-year-old pub which serves food produced in the Coquet Valley. Make a day of it and head out to the beautiful beaches along the Northumberland coast and stop off at Bamburgh Castle along the way. If you fancy a change of pace, you can hop on a train and be in the centre of Edinburgh within the hour. In the evening, retreat back to your secluded sanctuary, put your feet up in front of the fire or perhaps sit out on the patio for a spot of stargazing.

From Previous Guests

Have you stayed here?

Peter and Donna

We came for tranquillity and seclusion and found them along with comfort. Apart from a very short trip to the shop in Harbottle we stayed at Kidlandlee for the week, reading, quietly enjoying the countryside with our dog, listening to music (some streamed), and watching some DVDs or TV series (though sometimes the Internet was too slow for video streaming, which we'd expected). Everything was in very good order and spotless. The decor was complemented by quality furniture and interesting artefacts. The bathroom was as well appointed as any high class hotel. The double bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped although it didn't have a dishwasher (because that would drain too much of the off-grid electricity?) There was more than enough hot water. Kidlandlee is high up in a forestry area so the walking directly from your accommodation is mostly along forestry roads thought there are a few footpaths. Coquetdale is only a few miles down the hill but we didn't explore it on this holiday. There's also the remainder of the National Park. We stayed immediately after the UK holiday accommodation lockdown had been lifted. Terri, the manageress had implemented a thorough process (approved by the UK's tourist authorities) for minimising the risk of viral cross infection and we felt very safe.

Stayed July 2020
