Great location - easily accessible and peaceful


,
Had a great week - the Old Barn is as advertised, easy to get to from the A1, handy for Berwick and shops/facilities but at the same time felt very remote in a lovely setting with great views - including the sheep in the next field. Good to have the garden space too. Friendly and helpful owners next door.

The Old Barn - High Letham replied: Good morning Jo, Many thanks for taking the trouble to review The Old Barn, High Letham,. So glad your holiday here a success and do come back soon! Best wishes Richard & Susan

Beautiful views, good location


_j_bailey560, Lancashire, United Kingdom
The property offers stunning views in a quiet location but only a short drive to Berwick, the coast and a range of supermarkets for self catering. The owners were very helpful and keen to make sure we had all we needed for our stay. We enjoyed some great bike rides, especially to Holy Island, and found the local lanes quiet and easy to use on push bikes. There are great beaches only a short drive away and also superb hill walking with brilliant views. The property was spacious and comfortable with a lovely sunny garden. We love the area and will definately return.

The Old Barn - High Letham replied: Many thanks for this review and glad that your holiday was a success. Come back soon! Richard & Susan

Super self catering holiday home with amazing views and lovely owners.


AnnieBoo2015, Sheffield, United Kingdom
Great holiday from the outset due to the warm welcome from Mr and Mrs Persse. The Old Barn was very comfortable with a good family garden, the sheep over the wall were a real bonus. The views were breath taking, looking over rolling countryside and the Tweed plus the sea beyond the estuary. It is a wonderful part of the world near to Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Paxton House and only a train ride from Edinburgh.

The Old Barn - High Letham replied: Thank you for this review and the beautiful card that you gave us on leaving. We were impressed by your whole family's cycling range - especially by the day when you all went to Lindisfarne, the first from here to cycle there! Delighted that your holiday was such a success.

Beautiful cottage, location and county


dh-preston, Preston, United Kingdom
Great location, very close to town but far enough out that you feel de-stressed as soon as you arrive. The cottage is a great size, with a lovely view from the upstairs lounge and the back garden is in the sun all day. Richard (owner) was very welcoming and gave us good tips for looking round the area. The Chain Bridge Honey Farm is well worth a visit, lovely coffee and homemade cakes on the bus! Recommend doing the Lowry Walk. Would love to stay here again :)

The Old Barn - High Letham replied: Dianne, Most kind of you to respond so warmly and much appreciated by us both. Richard & Susan

Ideal Location for the Borders


awpurchon, Kirkwall, United Kingdom
Great place to enjoy all that Northumberland has to offer. Comfortable and well equiped with wonderful views looking accross the fields to Berwick upon Tweed.The best of both worlds for self caterers - peace and quiet and a few minutes from supermarkets and the town ammenities.

The Old Barn - High Letham replied: Many thanks for your kind note left for us after your dawn departure for the Orkney ferry and now this. Richard & Susan
