The Drum Barn - UK3279 Cottage
4 bedrooms, sleeps 8

Complete with a wood fired tub, this stunning barn conversion is perfect for a large gathering of family or friends.

This bespoke holiday home is located near to the village of Great Whittington and offers beautiful countryside views. Set on the owner’s farm, along with two other holiday properties, this semi-detached barn conversion accommodates up to eight guests. Here you will find reclaimed wood from the surrounding area used as feature walls creating a rustic feel with a modern twist. The large Scandinavian style wood burner is perfect for cosy evenings after a dip in the wood fired tub. The property is ideal for celebrations so welcomes couples, families or friends. Relax on the landing seating area and enjoy the views out towards Hadrian’s Wall and the Cheviot Hills. The property offers complimentary toiletries, Wi-Fi, an Amazon Echo and USB plug sockets in some of the rooms. Proud to be eco-friendly with biomass heating, it is always warm and welcoming. The Drum Barn enjoys a private garden with barbecue, and shared access to the paddock and children’s play area which is set away from the property so no noise interruptions! The peace and tranquillity around Rose’s Bower has to be experienced, the views are spectacular and the mod cons within will keep the most discerning guests happy.


There is plenty to see out and about in the area. The property is situated only 4 miles from the very pretty and upmarket historic small town of Corbridge with a good choice of pubs, bespoke shops, cafés and lovely church. Hadrian’s Wall has museums and Roman forts only 7 miles away, and a day can be spent visiting sites along the wall. Take your walking shoes and go over to ‘Sycamore Gap’ the famous tree which featured in the film Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The dark sky in this area is beautiful on a clear night for stargazing and perhaps catching the Northern Lights. There is a friendly pub 1¼ miles away in Great Whittington which also serves Chinese food and is popular with the locals.


Capheaton Hall and Matfen Hall, both popular wedding venues, are a short drive so Rose’s Bower would be a great base if you are visiting one of the venues. The vibrant city of Newcastle is only 20 miles away, and the historic town of Hexham is only 7 miles with plenty of shops and pubs. A day trip to the seaside is only 33 miles away with the stunning Northumberland Heritage Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty worth a visit, or Tynemouth with beaches and plenty of upmarket bistros, fish restaurants and wine bars for a coastal day out. Rose’s Bower is an ideal base from which to explore the many delights of Northumberland and the border counties. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1¼ miles.
The Drum Barn can be booked together with The Hayloft (ref UK3280) and Old Woodworker’s Cottage (ref UK3281) to accommodate up to 20 guests
