Latest Review of Bowes Barn Overnight stay, extended to 2 night Stayed here as for a stop off before heading to the nearby Beamish Museum. Very friendly host Angus showed us to our room and then gave us a tea, coffee and Victoria sponge. It was a lovely touch at the end of a long day. Our room had a huge kingsize bed that was very comfy. Breakfast the following day was very good with a good choice of cooked options as well as cereal and fruit salad. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in this area, I’d thoroughly recommend the Riding Farm Do you fancy doing the same ? and dont forget we have discount vouchers to Beamish Museum and other attractions in the area http://www.ridingfarmcottages.co.uk/our-cottages/bowes-barn-4-star-gold-near-durham-beamish-and-newcastle/ — Products shown: Short Breaks and Short Breaks in Northumberland.
