About this place

The Old Byre self-catering holiday cottage at Rye Hill Farm is part of a small, 300-year-old, family run sheep farm, with stunning views across the Tyne Valley. The Old Byre is attached to the farmhouse and has its own entrance. It was originally the milking byres but is now a beautiful stone-built holiday cottage sleeping up to 7 plus a baby in cot. The farm is just outside the village of Slaley and 5 miles south of Hexham, deep in the heart of the beautiful Northumberland countryside and is within the North Pennines AONB and is close to the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park. Our holiday cottage is ideally placed for visiting Hexham, Corbridge and Slaley Hall, Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site, and for walking or cycling across Blanchland Moor or beside Devil's Water river and in Kielder Forest or across the North Pennines. Kitchen The holiday cottage kitchen is very well equipped with cooking utensils, a dual fuel cooker, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave. Enjoy family dining on our long sycamore farmhouse table which was made for us 40 years ago out of the bread counters at the Hexham Bakery. Next door is a laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing facilities. If you prefer to eat out, then lunches and evening meals can be had from The Travellers Rest pub on the B6306 or the Rose and Crown pub in nearby Slaley. And of course, there is a wide choice of restaurants and takeaways in Hexham and Corbridge. Lounge The cottage with its underfloor heating, is wonderfully cosy no matter what the weather. Heating and electricity are included in the tariff. There are two comfy 3 seater sofas and two high armchairs for relaxing in and free Wi-Fi, books, board games and a flat screen tv. The sitting room leads out onto a fenced patio, safe for little ones and dogs, and great for sitting out in the sunshine and watching the goings on in the farmyard. Children Children are very welcome at the Old Byre holiday cottage. We have a high chair and travel cot available for our tiny guests. They are welcome to explore the farm with adult supervision and use our outside play facilities, which include The Mud Pie Kitchen and the Games Barn which has a skittle alley, table tennis and a pool table Pets The Old Byre holiday cottage is dog friendly and pets are welcomed, and we don’t charge extra. We only ask two things of you. The first is that your dog is kept on its lead while out and about on the farm. Rye Hill Farm is a working sheep farm (plus our neighbours also have sheep) and we have free range chickens that can pop up anywhere. The second ask is that dog poop is bagged and placed in the bins provided. This keeps grass and tracks pleasant for everyone staying on the farm.
