Barley Hill

The first ever Wild Plum renovation, this 19th century whinstone gem was once a shepherd’s cottage. Nestling in undulating Northumberland countryside amid barley fields and woodland, this hideaway is our best kept secret, with truly idyllic private surroundings and panoramic views stretching down the Bowmont Valley to the neighbouring hills of the Northumberland National Park.

Deep baths, fluffy towels and roaring log fire coupled with the trademark Wild Plum interior, it’s no wonder this popular cottage is top of the list with our many returning guests.

Acres of arable meet the patchwork of the Cheviot hills – the breathtaking views are what both our regulars and newcomers love the most about this wee gem of a cottage, “It’s so rare these days and so refreshing”.

“Wow indeed! Thank you Corinne and Andrew for a wonderful weekend in a superbly appointed and luxurious cottage with views to die for. Toby the dog enjoyed the totally secured garden to run around in. He definitely doesn’t want to go home and neither do we!! Thanks again.”
