Longknowe Barn sits in a commanding upland setting, with views down the valley and within the Northumberland National Park, about 9 miles from Wooler. The open plan living area is wonderfully light and spacious with inviting sofas and a welcoming wood burner. There is a home cinema system and Wi-Fi but variable mobile signal, so this property is just perfect for an escape.
The ground floor bedroom looks onto the surrounding hills and the galleried area with a double futon bed is suitable for extra guests. Plenty of toys are provided to keep young children amused, and paddling in the small (fenced) stream is sure to be fun for all. Longknowe Barn is set within the enclosed grounds of the owner’s holiday home, and has a large, sheltered, grassed garden at the rear and a small patio area at the front. Hillwalking tracks pass the cottage and there are remains of a Roman period farmstead just below.
Wooler has a variety of local shops, cafés and pubs, and being close to the Scottish border, there are interesting towns and villages to explore throughout the area. There are glorious sandy beaches at Goswick and Bamburgh, along with castles and famous gardens in Alnwick. Seals and puffins can be seen on the Farne Islands and Holy Island also makes for a great day out. Beach 18 miles. Shop and restaurant 6 miles, pub 8 miles.

About the local area

Wooler is a small, stone-built town on the edge of the Northumberland National Park and at the foot of the Cheviot Hills. It is one of the main towns along the popular long-distance footpath of St Cuthbert's Way, which runs between Melrose in the Scottish borders and Holy Island.

Situated in the northern part of the county close to the Scottish border, Wooler is an excellent base for a holiday or for exploring the surrounding countryside. With quiet backroads and bridleways in the area is ideal for many activities, including cycling, horse riding, fishing and rock climbing. To the east is the magnificent coastline of Northumberland, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coast offers spectacular scenery from Bamburgh Castle and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to Seahouses and the birdwatcher's paradise The Farne Islands.

The town itself has interesting and specialist shops and cafes. There is an abundance of local food, grocery stores and a working pottery studio, making Wooler the leading shopping centre in the area. The rich flora and fauna are held in high regards.

To the North East you'll find the Ford and Etal estates, an area that offers visitors everything from its own steam railway line to Northumberland's only thatched pub. The estate is superb for outdoor enthusiasts and footpaths and bridleways criss-cross the area. Cycle hire is available locally and there are numerous pubs, tearooms and restaurants offering refreshment when you've done your exploring.

Situated to the west of Wooler are the Cheviot Hills marking the border with Scotland. They are the most northerly hills in England and cover some 400 square miles. A large proportion of these predominantly green, rounded hills lie at the heart of the Northumberland National Park. These hills offer a wild and romantic landscape to explore.
