Downstairs the hallway has a WC room off and wide staircase leading up to the bedrooms. The kitchen/diner is very large with a fully integrated newly fitted kitchen with porcelain tiled floor and solid oak worktops and mobile work station.

To the front of Causeway Barn is a private access road that was built originally by the Romans and is known as, “The Causeway,” hence the name of the Barn. Here there is plenty of car parking and also a lockable bike store.

Outside the Barn swallows dart in the sky above and deer, foxes and buzzards form part of an abundance of wildlife that are often seen. In spring and summer guests can enjoy the cows grazing peacefully with their calves in the field beyond the Causeway whilst the sun rises over the sea beyond, one mile away. Here, long stretches of deserted sandy beach and the Northumberland Coast and Castle Cycle Route stretch southwards past Goswick Golf Course through the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve to Holy Island- an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About Rosalind Dryden

I personally look after and the manage Causeway Barn to a high standard to ensure the best experience for our guests. We are proud to have achieved a Gold Award for exceptional quality and service from Visit England.

We live one mile from the Barn so are near enough to be on hand if required during your stay. We are open, friendly people and nothing is too much trouble for us. We are happy to give local knowledge on Northumberland as we know and love our beautiful county!

Rosalind Dryden purchased this barn in 2013

Why Rosalind Dryden chose Northumberland Coast

The location is just perfect for holidays! The Farm is not far from the A1 but beautifully quiet, surrounded by fields home to cows and calves in Summer. Direct access south to Holy Island (10 mins) Bamburgh (15 mins) and all the other delights the Northumberland Coast and inland offers. The Barn is also well located to explore west into the Scottish Borders, (the market town of Kelso with Floors Castle is 20 minute drive) and north to Scotland's capital city Edinburgh (60 minute drive). There are views east towards the sea- Cocklawburn Beach and Cheswick Sands, (part of the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve) are 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk.

The walled town of Berwick upon Tweed is also a 5 minute drive north offering an excellent selection of supermarkets, shops bars, pubs and restaurants.

What makes this barn unique

The property is located a private residents only farm road off the A1167 so it is beautifully quiet and safe. We have a bike store outside the front of the property so it is perfect for children and adults alike. There are lots of walks near the Barn- to the Beach, over the fields or into Berwick upon Tweed. There are two cafes within walking distance open 7 days a week for breakfasts, lunches, coffees and cake- the one at Borewell Farm also has children's play frame, swings and an art barn. At the end of the farm drive is also an outdoor shop selling lots of items for holiday makers.

Superbly equipped. Very comfortable. Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The Causeway Barn is very well located for visiting interesting places eg Alnwick Castle and especially the gardens, Lindisfarne, Floors Castle, Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle, St Abbs (little fishing village), and Craigside where Armstrong was the first person to generate hydro electricity.. We could have easily visited Edinburgh and Hadrian's wall, had time allowed. My NZ relatives and I were absolutely delighted with our stay.

Quiet, peaceful, tastefully done with a comfortable homely feel.

  • 5 of 5

The whole property was tastefully done in pale modern colours, was clean and well maintained. The kitchen/dinner was bright, spacious and fully equipped with patio doors leading to a private, well attended sitting area which gets the pm sun. The sitting room had the calming effect, with comfortable chairs, ideal for reading, watching TV or savouring the peace and quiet. The bedrooms enjoyed lovely land/sea views and were, again tastefully fitted with comfortable beds. While the combed ceilings gave character, they proved a little challenging in the en suite (tall people). This did not spoil our stay.

The area is full of things to do, places to visit and things to see.

We would highly recommend this property and would like to return.

Had a wonderful week. The cottage is well placed to explore Northumberland and Scotland. We were spoiled with the cottage as it was so luxurious and comfortable. We hope to return.

Fabulous property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday at Causeway Barn. The property was of a high standard and had everything we needed and more. The amenities of Berwick are close by with very good places to eat. Edinburgh is accessible (we used the park and ride). Also Bamburgh, Holy Island and The Farne Islands are within reach. Altogether this was a great choice for the family and I'd recommend this property to anyone.
