Historical Hayloft Apartment

The Hayloft

Our first floor apartment, located at the east of the longhouse. It was originally, as the name suggests, used as a storage area on our family farm.

The main space is a wonderfully bright, airy, spacious area containing a modern fully fitted kitchen, dining table and comfortable living area with wood burning stove. This is a great entertaining space and has all the comforts of home. 

The 2 bedrooms are either side of the living area. 

The master containing a king size bed, has 2 wonderful picture windows with original stone reveals. The ensuite, with luxury roll top bath, has 2 feature windows with original stone reveals. This is the perfect place for a relaxing soak after a day exploring.

The second bedroom is a twin containing 2 single beds. It retains some of the character of the old hayloft with the stable door (leading onto an outside staircase) and oak roof beams. The roof light ensures it is bright and airy. The stylish ensuite has a toilet, basin and shower.

A really lovely place. Comfortable and I can imagine in the winter - cosy. I was there in the summer and the thick walls kept it lovely and cool. We loved our stay there. So lovely that you are dog friendly. Kathryn is a wonderful host. I would definitely stay here again. Very well equipped if you want to cook in. Lovely welcome basket, coffee, tea, biscuits and eggs from Kathryn's chickens! Hope to see you again soon.

A lovely, cosy property, superbly equipped for guests and in a good situation for visiting Durham and the surrounding areas. Clear instructions made the house easy to find, with easy checking in and out as Kathryn lives next door. We hope to be back one day!

We stayed in the Byre, the smallest of the three properties, and it was great in every way. Warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean and so well appointed. It was just as comfortable as being at home. We stayed there with our daughter who is a final year student at Durham University and would certainly recommend it to other parents of Durham students who need a few nights away from the stresses of univeristy life. Wish we'd found it earlier!

Excellant ☺ Quality of the premises and contents was really good. W☹ We could have done with a couple of small fans as it was a warm week in the UK and we had to keep the windows open in the night.

Excellent. We were able to book 2 apartments so enjoyed use of both with extended family ☺ Historical building at heart of pretty village. Lovely big lounge/kitchen.☹ Nowhere to kick a ball about. Bedrooms a bit small... but not a big deal.

Great property, but… ☺ The property is lovely inside, very well set up and has loads of space. It was clean and well provisioned. We found it a great place to relax.☹ Sadly I had expected the enclosed garden to be immediately accessible from the door of the property. Whilst there is a small garden it is at the other end of the car park and so it was not possible to just let my dog out into the garden before heading to bed etc. This did not spoil our holiday too much, but was not what I was expecting from the property description.

Lovely comfortable accommodations - hope you love the cows outside your window ☺ The interior fittings and furnishings are all lovely - very comfortable beds, and excellent water pressure in the shower.☹ Not keen on the ridiculous proximity to cows on the neighbour's property - can literally stare them in the eye through the windows while walking down the corridor. And they make a lot of noise.

Relaxing. As it was the first holiday in 14 months due to Covid, Perfect. ☺ Location was ideal for where we wanted to visit. 14th Century Barn was renovated to a high standard providing large spacious rooms. Master bedroom and en suite in particular. Though next to a working farm it was a quiet and peaceful place to stay. Local Village chip shop provided the best Fish and Chips we have had in years. Green close by to take dogs for a walk. Owners were helpful and thoughtful - would definitely stay again.☹ The weather. Cold and wet for May though the owners cannot be blamed for that. Though there was some green space around there was no garden that was specifically for the property. Again, the nature of the Barns means this is not possible to change.

We stayed for Christmas and had a really lovely time. The cottage is very easy to access, cosy, clean, spacious and very well equipped. You can watch the cows and calves in the barn out of the window which was lovely. Easy access to beautiful beaches and coastal walks.
