  The Detail...

Enjoy the remote location of Kidlandlee in the heart of Northumberland National Park at The Old Barn. With the sky overhead that is renowned for stargazing and the rolling hills surrounding the property, this converted barn is situated on a 12th Century site which was also once home to the highest shooting lodge in England at 1400 feet above sea level.

Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, The Old Barn was painstakingly rebuilt in the 19th Century using original stone salvaged from the site. After entering into the hallway those staying are greeted by a holiday home that is modern and stylish, while still maintaining its traditional charm. The open plan living room and kitchen is the social hub, with a feature floor to ceiling window offering spectacular views across the hills of the Upper Coquet Valley beyond. A comfy double sofa and two armchairs sit in front of the flat screen TV and wood burning stove, while the kitchen is well equipped with granite work surfaces, gas hob, oven, large fridge/freezer, microwave and washing machine.

The Old Barn prides itself on its ethos of sustainable living, with logs for the fire from nearby forests, solar and wind power, and fresh water supplied by its own bore hole. There is a king size bedroom with another feature window to really feel at one with nature, with a further twin with zip and link beds that can be turned into a king if required. There is also a family bathroom with shower over the bath. Further flexibility is provided by the fact that inner-connecting doors link to the neighbouring Leyland Barn should a bigger group be staying.

Outside there is an enclosed garden to the front of the property with outdoor furniture and a barbecue can be provided in the summer months. For walkers and cyclists there are many trails to explore that begin right on the doorstep. The Kidland Forest and Upper Coquetdale in particular offers a great looped route that takes in many woodland and riverside tracks. There are also great opportunities for climbing at Simonstone, while for those who want to take it a little easier why not stroll to the nearby village of Alwinton and enjoy a drink at the Rose and Thistle pub.
