Williamston Barns are centrally located in the upper most reaches of the North Pennines and many of our guests are visiting the area for the first time.  To help you get the most from your visit we have created a number of tailored itineraries which will take you to Hadrian’s Wall, local tarns, waterfalls and viaducts.  You will find maps and details for all of these guides in your information pack when you arrive.

Here are just a few examples:

If you need any help with other activities - canoeing along the South Tyne or Eden rivers, heading out with a bird and wild life expert, or a stargazing in a local observatories (the North Pennines has more Dark Sky Discovery Sites than anywhere else in the UK) then please let us know.
