The Farm is well located, being in a rural setting but within a short drive from the Tyneside conurbation. It has a good mix of rooms in the main house and barn conversions in the courtyard adjacent. We were in one of the latter which was very well-equipped to cater for a self-catering stay if required. The overall accommodation was... More

We booked to stay here during the Great North Run for 2 nights and it was beyond perfect for what we needed for our stay. I felt so at home instantly which is often missing when you stay away. I rang ahead to confirm we would be arriving later than anticipated and Louise made sure that all was ready for... More

We stayed here Thurs to Saturday am, (2 nights). Arrived early evening to be welcomed by a most welcomed cuppa and homemade cake, a lovely touch. We stayed as its very convenient for our visit to Beamish Museum, only 4 miles away, approx 10 mins drive through the winding country lanes. The Riding Farm is a lovely warm and welcoming... More

I have stayed here several times, a couple of times as a lone traveller with work and then brought my husband and son for a couple of days. I stayed in one of the self catering apartments. These have been converted from old farm buildings and are just beautiful. They have been done to such a high standard with a... More

We arrived here a little early, after driving along a very long and narrow road, in fact we had just reached the point of "are you sure you have the correct address?" Being early and finding no one around we walked about and admired the views over the surrounding villages and the Angel of the North in the distance, and... More

Our main reason for staying in the area was to visit Beamish museum. So glad we found Riding farm B&B as it was 5 minutes drive away.
