If you’re a fan of converted barns, then we urge you to check out The Hayloft – a renovated beauty, just outside of Corbridge, within easy reach of Hadrian’s Wall and the market town of Hexham.
Retaining tons of original features, The Hayloft sleeps six adults and two children. The owners have managed to keep the original ‘hayloft’, which looks over the kitchen and, with reduced headroom, is designed to sleep two children.
Highlights include a wood-fired hot tub and wood-burning stove, a private and enclosed garden, paddocks and barn and five acres of woodland to explore.
The bedrooms are also impressive; you’ll find one double bedroom with king-size bed (5ft wide), a double room with a double bed and a twin bedroom with two three-foot wide single beds. There are two, good-sized shower rooms, too.
The master bedroom occupies the whole of the first floor, accessed via a spiral staircase. Up another narrow staircase overlooking the kitchen you’ll find the hayloft; a gorgeous mezzanine level with reduced headroom.
The kitchen is bright, airy and super spacious, filled with all the usual appliances, such as an electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, Nespresso coffee pod machine (bring your own pods) and a washing machine. The dining table seats eight hungry diners comfortably. There’s also an Amazon Echo available, which doubles as a speaker, with access to Amazon music.
Two steps down from the kitchen is the lounge, home to a flat-screen TV, comfy sofas and armchairs and additional dining space for four guests – or a great place to play board games or cards.
The lounge also benefits from beautiful views across the Tyne Valley, with dual aspect windows and a wood-burning stove (planned for late September). There’s a door leading straight out to a private patio, where you’ll find the hot tub. The patio offers views of Hadrian’s Wall and the stunning, southerly views of the Tyne Valley. Our kind of place.
