Latest Review of Millers Barn - Wonderful cottage break
"I've just returned from a fabulous break at Millers Barn, Ridings Farm. The cottage was clean, well decorated and had everything we needed - including for my 17 month old niece (stair gates/high chairs etc.). Louise and Angus were so accommodating and even helped my Husband sneak in some birthday flowers, a balloon and some food before I arrived. We were very lucky with the weather and there are some amazing views around the farm. We would definitely go back again and are very grateful for everything the owners did to make our stay so relaxing."
We stayed at Millers Barn for two nights prior to our son's wedding on 27 April 2013. Other members of the family and friends had also booked properties owned by Riding Farm. The cottages are extremely warm and comfortable with fabulous big beds, lovely bathrooms and very well equipped kitchens. Extra thoughtful touches include milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and biscuits, wine and marmalade. Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.
Home from home. Thank you for making our stay so easy and enjoyable all our family who stayed in the other cottages all felt the same and I know we will definitely be back
Millers Barn is home from home we found it very comfortable with quality and luxury throughout - excellent layout. Within the tranquility of the countryside yet surprisingly short drive to Newcastle. Many thanks to Angus and Louise for their warm welcome and fantastic recommendations
