A newly renovated for 2020 barn conversation, one of three, set in the heart of the Northumberland countryside which is an idyllic spot for a family getaway.

Beautifully renovated to the highest of standards and commanding a fabulous location within the rolling hills of Northumberland, Blinkers Stables offers top quality accommodation in rolling countryside. Located on a traditional working farm, High Staward, is perfect for families and friends to meet up and explore this wonderful region. There is plenty on offer straight from your door such as walks or cycle routes with miles of countryside waiting to be discovered. Why not head for a day out to the roman fort sites of Vindolanda and Housesteads which are only a short drive away and get lost in some history for the day. A few miles away are the town of Hexham and Haltwhistle in either direction which offer plenty of shops and eateries. For those wanting to go a bit further the Northumberland coast isn’t too far away for a day at the beach.

Walking into the hall you will instantly notice the care and detail the owners have gone to create luxurious surroundings. You will find coat hooks and a spot for your boots which make the after walk clean up so much easier. The oak staircase will then take you up to the first floor. Before we head upstairs head along the corridor and arrive into the magical open plan living space. This really is the main hub of the house with built in kitchen across the left side and top of the range appliances and design. There is a retained stable wall that separates the lounge from the kitchen and a lovely oak table for those family meals anytime of the day. The lounge has everything you need from a large corner sofa with a single armchair to a wall mounted TV and a wood burner. On the first floor we have three king size bedrooms and one double all with en-suites and  WC's. You will notice the rooms hold some of the original beams and cute red windows which are part of what makes this property so unique.

Outside you will find a designated garden and patio area with seating, BBQ and private hot tub hidden by a stone walk.

Please note there is a refundable £250 security deposit for this property, payable closer to the start of your holiday.

  • 4 bedrooms - 3 king-size and 1 double

We spent our Christmas Holiday at the Blinkers Stables and it was amazing. Everything was exactly like in the pictures, we also had a Christmas tree and under it we found a gift for our 12 years old. The view was amazing, and the rooms were very comfy. The owners were very nice and helpful. We will definitely go back again soon.

Absolutely loved our stay in the beautiful blinkers stables. A lot of thought had clearly been put into the well equipped and gorgeous accommodation. The hot tub was amazing and loved meeting Boss the Labrador and the farm cat! Host was lovely and attentive, with nothing being any trouble.

Absolutely beautiful house and setting. Very well equipped and the hot tub was fabulous. The house is decorated to a very high spec and the kitchen in particular is very well done.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Blinkers Stables. This is luxury accommodation in a wonderful setting with super hosts. Lots of things to do and see in the immediate area. If you enjoy castles and want to learn about Hadrians Wall, join English Heritage before you come. Lots of great walks for all abilities and good food in local pubs.
