The Barn at Reedsford
Take a lovely escape to the great outdoors where the road will lead you to the blissful Bowmont Valley and peace, perfect peace.
Peace, perfect peace
Ideal for two, the Barn at Reedsford is a perfect gateway for walking and cycling in the pure, natural beauty of the Northumberland National Park or simply for pressing the pause button and taking life at a slower pace.
Inside, the overall look is light and bright with a soothing Shaker style scheme for easy, relaxed living. A large powder grey sliding door floods the main open plan living space with light, leading into a super enclosed garden where you can enjoy the views across the hillside or magical starry nights.
The bedroom features high quality linen from the White Company while a characterful original feature window casts a lovely shaft of morning sunlight. This is completed by a large walk in shower with hand crafted artisan tiles adding a decidedly Mediterranean edge.

Despite Reedsford’s rural location there are good local amenities nearby. The estate is 8 miles from the pretty town of Wooler which offers a good range of independent shops including two excellent butchers, a very good delicatessen, several pubs and cafes and the highly rated Milan Restaurant.
Cornhill on Tweed is 7 miles from the estate and offers an excellent village shop selling pies and delicious local goodies, and the Collingwood Arms which has a super bar and restaurant specialising in dishes prepared using the wealth of local produce on offer. More extensive shopping including a good range of independent shops, pubs and restaurants can be found in Kelso 14 miles away.
Sitting in the foothills of the Cheviots on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, the cottage is ideally placed for walking, cycling and enjoying the great outdoors. The outstanding countryside around the property offers fantastic walking in scenic surroundings, and the wider area enjoys a number of designated walking routes, including more challenging hikes amidst the dramatic scenery of the National Park. St. Cuthbert’s Way passes through Wooler, the 62 mile walk from Melrose Abbey to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, or enjoy walks to Linhope Spout and Routing Linn with their fantastic waterfall picnic spots and super wildlife spotting opportunities.
For cycling and mountain biking, you will find everything from gentle low-level meanders to big hill country treks including trails for family-friendly recreation, with bike hire available locally. For more challenging terrain, you can join long-distance routes such as the Pennine Cycleway, the cycle challenges of the Wooler Wheel Hub, or excursions which take in historical sites such as the Flodden Trail or St. Cuthbert’s Cave.
Horse riding is available locally at nearby Kimmerston, and fishing is available on the River Till or Wooler Water. Both have good runs of sea-trout and salmon throughout the season as well as good numbers of grayling and brown trout.
For golf enthusiasts, Wooler has its own 9 hole course with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside whilst Goswick, Bamburgh and the Roxburghe championship course are all within easy driving distance. For something a little different, gliding can be arranged through the Borders Gliding Club at Milfield where you can soar effortlessly on a rising thermal amidst the spectacular scenery of the National Park.
The stunning heritage coast is just a half-hour drive with miles of pristine sandy beaches, jolly pubs serving the freshest fish and chips, and picture postcard coastal villages with charming galleries and gift shops waiting to be explored. Experience the exhilarating thrill of kitesurfing at Bamburgh, coasteering at Beadnell or perhaps just enjoy the simple pleasures of a picnic and a game of beach cricket on sands which remain almost deserted even in the summer months.
From the lush green uplands to shimmering sea, the area boasts a hugely diverse and enticing landscape that is perfect for exploring on foot. From gentle rambles to long-distance hikes, there are a vast array of trails and waymarked routes for newbie walkers or experienced alike.Find Out More

"We had a fantastic stay at the Barn - it was a real haven of peace and tranquility, set in beautiful countryside with wonderful views. The cottage was spacious and tastefully furnished with everything we needed, as well as a large outhouse/storeroom for any additional equipment. The welcome pack was amazing, full of delicious local products- the cakes kept us going for several days long walks!! All in all a wonderful, relaxing break in the glorious Northumberland countryside. We will definitely be back! This is our second stay in a Crabtree & Crabtree property and we have found both properties to be of exceptional quality. We will definitely book further holidays with your company and would recommend highly to others."Testimonial - Dickinson

Many thanks and we will certainly be back later in the year."Morris Family
"We had a wonderful week at the Barn and have already recommended it to several family and friends since getting back. All our comments are positive, the barn is wonderful, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom superb. All the kitchen equipment was spotless which is not always the case when we have stayed in other parts of the country! We will be back with you very soon."Ms Bennett

"I found the Barn to be extremely comfortable to stay in. It was warm and cosy and everything was to a high specification. The Welcome Hamper was lavish and certainly very welcome. Arrangements for opening up and locking up were straightforward. There was a generous supply of logs for the wood burner. The place was spotless and everything looked new. It was certainly smartly decorated. I could not fault it on that score. The situation was quiet and peaceful and the surrounding countryside beautiful. In short, the Barn proved ideal for me!"Ms Glass
"What a wonderful recent stay at The Barn in Reedsford. Location was perfect (avoiding fireworks!). The lovely basket of goodies (and they certainly were good) was very much appreciated. It was a proper chill out mid week break in a fabulous location and luxurious accommodation. Adults and dogs highly recommend."Kerr Family
"A fabulous cottage in a stunning setting. We stayed at The Barn for a week in mid September. We wanted a holiday not too far from home and this looked a good choice, we brought our two Jack Russells with us and did lots of walking. The Barn was absolutely ideal, I loved the entrance hall area with coat pegs and bench, it was perfect for dropping all the stuff after a day’s walking.
We had great weather and had breakfast outside in the lovely garden most mornings. The cottage is well equipped, beautifully clean and a good size for a 2 person cottage. The little touches were much appreciated, the lovely fluffy towels, beautiful bed linen and the most comfortable huge bed I have ever slept in. It was just perfect to return here in the evenings to relax. The welcome basket with bread, home-made lemon drizzle cake, flapjack and good coffee was a great touch and much appreciated.
We wanted a relaxing holiday and didn’t venture too far from base, although we did make a couple of forays over the border, and the walk down by the river from the cottage was a great early morning stroll with the dogs. There are great walks and places of interest to visit within a few miles. We would particularly recommend a walk over Yeavering Bell, the views are to die for and we saw the wild goats too! For those not from the area a visit to the spectacular Northumberland coast is a must.
We would definitely come back to The Barn."Mrs & Mr Robinson
"Your firm have been very helpful and emailing me also when I have not just returned from holiday as some other firms do. I shall be looking to book future accommodation through your firm as much as possible. The Barn...what a place and how clean and tidy. Well thought out for guests and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. When we visit Northumberland again this will no doubt be our go to place."Ms Stringer
"We had a lovely break at The Barn, which was well furnished and equipped, spotlessly clean and with a very comfy bed. The stunning views were a real wow factor. A great cottage. Many thanks."Ms Lambert
