This charming, 17th-century, detached farmhouse, adjacent to the owner’s home, is situated in 7-acres of private grounds, with stunning views of the Rede Valley. Situated on the Pennine Way, on the outskirts of Byrness Village, close to the Northumberland National Park and only 5 miles from the Scottish border, this is a great area for walkers. The Byrness is also located in the middle of a gold award Dark Sky Area in the darkest patch, perfect for astronomers and star gazers, and only 12 miles from Keilder observatory and park. An ideal base for friends and family to get together for holidays or special occasions. Outdoor pursuits are a huge attraction in the area, and a favourite location for walkers and adventure seekers. For golfers, there is a golf course 17 miles away in the nearby village of Bellingham. The well equipped farmhouse kitchen, large dining room and living room ensures a relaxing evening after exploring the many visitor attractions in what is reputedly the friendliest county in England. Dog sitting is available by arrangement as well as fly fishing (available locally), and Dark Sky information can also be provided by the owner. Beach 40 miles. Shop 10 miles, pub and restaurant 5 miles.

    We all enjoyed our holiday in Northumberland. Our host was very friendly, the house was spotlessly clean and tidy, lots of kitchen equipment and an excellent location in Kielder Forest - ideal for walks and would have been ideal for star-gazing had the cloud ever cleared! I ticked 9/10 for local amenities because this depends on what you want. It is in a very rural area but there are restaurants and a small local shop only a short drive away. We had to travel further for a large supermarket and for fuel. But if you are prepared for this it is fine and would not be the peaceful rural location it is if there were too many amenities nearby. A very large house with character (the photos don't show how big the rooms are) making it excellent for large groups, but it is a little 'tired'.
