Fantastic time in an absolutely beautiful house - flawless. Countryside even prettier due to the blanket of snow. Thank you. Hope to be back sometime.

What an amazing place to spend Christmas - we stayed in both the Barns & Cowshed. We couldn’t of asked for anything better. The kids faces lit up when the saw the Christmas tree. Loved the welcome pack - especially the cake. Stunning surroundings with lots of beautiful walks. Great food at the local pub - Kirkstyle Inn.
We all completely fell in love with the house and farm. Would recommend to everyone and we will certainly be back.

Hi Viv and Neville,
I just wanted to thank you for our week in your holiday cottage. We had a fantastic week and Northumberland blew us away. We honestly had no idea it was so beautiful. We enjoyed all the walks and managed to see Cresswell beach, Kielder Forest, Carlisle, High and Low Force and obviously a little bit of Newcastle. The countryside and your surrounding area is stunning. We loved it. The dogs had never had such a wonderful holiday before and loved all the walks around your farm.
The Cowshed was very comfortable and done to such a good standard ( you have lovely interior design taste !). In fact, we slept so well we took a photo of the label on your mattress and are planning to get the same one.
We will be back if you will have us back again! We loved it and I had to let you know. You have a wonderful setup and you have done it so well. Everyone was so friendly and we had a chat with Ben and his dad. I really liked the sheep and wanted to take a couple home.
So thank you for a fantastic week,
Sarah and Carmine Porpora - Sussex

Steel family - Scarborough, N Yorks.
A fantastic holiday. Stunning barn ticked every box! Thank you. Superb walks with lunch at the Kirkstyke Inn - superb chicken kebabs and sticky toffee pudding. Vindolanda A* and Houseteads good on the Roman Wall. Lovely tearooms in Alston. Loved every minute.
The Wing Family - Lincolnshire
A superb week in a great cottage. Well thought out walks with the bonus of not having to drive to the start. What was best was that the age range of 14 - 78 were able share time in this great location. The best part for us was the time and effort that Ben the farmer (and his dad, Paul) made - knocked on the door and said they would be shearing the sheep. Some lovely villages and great people, plus one of the best fitted-out kitchens we have seen.
Powells - Christchurh & Mei Mei family from Malaysia

This is one of the best holiday venues I have been at. Nice owners who made everyone most welcome. A lot of thought has been put into the building and design of the rooms. Thank you for a great holiday. I will return for sure.
George Kay - Glasgow
The perfect place for a family celebration - beautifully converted buildings in a dramatic location, and very comfortable. Loads of room for relaxing. The facilities are excellent: great showers and baths, large, comfortable beds, well-equipped bathrooms and kitchens. We went on some great walks and enjoyed a pub lunch at the Kirkstyle Inn.
You have obviously put a lot of love into creating this beautiful space in such stunning countryside. Such a lovely stay here in your beautifully designed home - a real jewel. We have all loved it and are loath to leave. The cake, marmalade, fresh farm eggs and beers were very well received. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
The Wrights - Suffolk
We had a fantastic time at Williamston Barns. It was ideal for the family party. Everyone had good comments about the space and the location. The large rooms were particularly good and the two kitchens allowed the children to be fed in one for their supper and breakfast and be able to rush about as much as they liked, while the more subdued of the party could get away and have a bit of quiet time!
You have thought of almost everything! My brother had his usual subtle comment about his stairs not having any heating. I had put him and his wife in the upper bedroom and sitting room and his humour can be a little strange but we all laughed at his mad complaint! So, all in all, it was a brilliant success so very many thanks. We also had a good meal in Alston at the hotel and on the Sunday two of us went walking to the pub and again had a very good meal so I would recommend both places and the walk to both well worth the trip.
I will certainly recommend the Barns to friends and family.

We have had a fabulous New Year here! The Barn and the Cowshed have been perfect for our party of 14 ranging from 7 months to 88 years old. You really have thought of everything - we couldn't have asked for anything else. We have enjoyed lazy mornings and exploring the local area which is very picturesque. Wishing all at Williamston Barns a very Happy New Year.

The Marshall Party.
What a wonderful space for our special break. We could not fault a thing, very well equipped.
We will endeavour to return very soon.
We had an amazing four days in The Barn, everything exceeding our expectations. Comfortable and luxurious, every need catered for, in a peaceful and quiet location. No need to move from here, with walks out on our doorstep, surrounded by unspoilt and beautiful countryside. The kitchen is well equipped and sociable, the two wood burning stoves providing the "wow" factor in the evening. A first visit and we have fallen in love with Northumberland and Williamston Barns.
The Kilduff's & The White's
I'm struggling to come up with anything to improve the service, from the booking to arrival at the houses and the weekend there, everyone has been amazingly helpful. Thank you.
I can honestly say that all 14 of us had a fab time. The thought that had gone into equipping the houses was great, and this provided the perfect place to celebrate two 50th family birthdays. The 2 properties and how they connected gave us the space we needed. The cake, eggs and beers were a lovely welcome and went down really well.
I have to confess we didn't go to many places during our stay, a brief trip to Alston was about it. We did go on one of the walks around the estate which provided wonderful views and amazing we saw 2 lambs being born, I'm sure my nephew won't forget that in a hurry!
We had a wonderful holiday at the Cowshed. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and the barn has been furnished to a very high quality. We just loved it; the bedrooms were very comfortable, the bathroooms spacious and we always had lots of hotwater. It was perfectly clean and warm and the kitchen was excellent; modern and equipped with a dream of a rangemaster oven and all the pots, pans etc., that our two cooks could have wished for as we love to self cater on a grand scale.
We went for the walking and we averaged about 13kms every day either on the estate or on sections of the Pennine way. We also walked along two sections of the Hadrian’s Wall which was one of the highlights of our holiday. Northumberland is a very beautiful and peaceful county and we were blessed with some wonderful weather. We also drove across the Alston moors for a visit to Barnaby Castle which is a lovely market town, popping in to see the High Force waterfall and enjoyed an excellent lunch at the Rose and Crown in Romaldkirk.
Our experience at the Cowshed was first class and we would go back and stay again.
