“Brilliant new year holiday”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Just got back from a week at Broadmea, we rented the barn and stable it was a truly fabulous break, both properties were brilliant. There was 16 of us, ageing from 2 yrs to 39 yrs, and everyone enjoyed it. Local pub Kirkstyle is worth a visit, can't really walk there with young children, food lovely, book first though.

“Superb in every way - this is the place for a large group or family”
Reviewed 17 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Broadmea is beautifully designed and finished with great taste and attention to detail. The large communal kitchen and dining area is perfect for large groups of family to share, eat and have fun together.

There is plenty of room and the lay-out works extremely well, providing both privacy when required and space for everyone to be together. The top quality bedrooms, bathrooms, showers and the sauna were all very welcome after our days out walking and enjoying Hadrian's Wall.

We were all thoroughly delighted with the accommodation and the welcome and service provided. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in this area. My advice? Book it fast - great value and you won't regret it!

“Hen Weekend "spoiled"”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014
3
people found this review helpful

NO faults with property or location but we had booked for a Hen Party weekend, Arrived at 3pm on the Friday and were all home by 1pm on the Sunday. We had a good night on the Friday, dancing singing etc but then I checked my mobile on the Saturday morning to find a text, that had been sent on the Friday night at 11.20pm (hen party) asking us to turn the music down and close the windows in the barn, which was stiflingly hot especially with twelve people in it. Because I was so upset by the text I became really anxious about the girls making a noise on the Saturday night and also told them to keep the windows closed as I was worried the owner would get in touch again. This caused a lot of upset and even fallings out among our group, who were quite rightly in hindsight rather annoyed at the fact that Trish the owner had taken our money and the hen party booking and seemed to have expected us not to make a noise. This review is just to make people aware who are thinking of booking here for any large group, hen party etc that the place is not suitable. We paid a lot of money and are really devastated at how it turned out. As we said to Trish before we left , YOU CAN NOT TAKE PEOPLES MONEY FOR SOMETHING LIKE HEN PARTYS ETC AND EXPECT THERE NOT TO BE SOME NOISE. . Local pub Kirkstyle Inn, was very welcoming and served excellent food to us on the Saturday lunchtime.

Liked least: The fact that our long awaited hen weekend break was ruined, solely through owners actions as no one joined on next door had any problems with us

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you were happy with the Barn accommodation and location. With regard to the noise, my decision to send a polite text came after more than six hours of loud music and singing which I do not have a problem with. However, as a responsible owner and as midnight approached, it was appropriate to request the noise be reduced out of respect for others nearby who were also entitled to an enjoyable weekend. It is regrettable that members of your group disagreed. In my experience, all my large groups be they hen parties, birthday parties or other, happily show consideration with regard to noise levels and still thoroughly enjoy their stay. In fact, in eight years of business, I've never had a complaint and all those who've submitted reviews would highly recommend. I look forward to welcoming large groups whatever the occasion.

“Stunning! Couldn't have asked for better!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed here for the wknd with the whole the family, 13 in total as littlest was still in travel cot. There was plenty of room for all of us to fit extremely comfortably. The accommodation is beautifully and cleverly renovated and decorated throughout. Everything you need and more is within the barn, it's warm, cosy, comfortable, provides great areas for everyone to be together as well as having areas where you can get a bit of peace and quiet too. Couldn't find fault with the barn what so ever, Trish was incredibly helpful with booking, and a pleasure to deal with. Alston is 5 mins down the road and is convenient for a nip to the shop as well as restaurants and takeaways,
Amazing wknd, thanks very much!
