The barn is spacious yet cosy, with views over the fields. Only sheep for company this is the perfect break from the hustle and bustle. You will have to hop in the car for shops and the pub, shopping stores only 15min away max and a short drive for a pub lunch, try Crinnions in Lanchester. Youre local to lovely rural walks, woodlands and Durham. ItRead mores an easy drive to Gateshead metro centre if you want to do some shopping. Wrap the day up with a dip in the hot tub and watch the stars Hide
