Hello Dick and Margaret welcome you to Hall Barns and hope you enjoy your stay.

Hall Barns was originally called ‘Thawle Barnys’ there was a tower here in troublesome days of raiding and a mention of it dating back to 1541.

We moved here in February 2006 and have had the house refurbished to 3 letting en suite rooms for short or long stay. There are 2 twin rooms and a family room which can sleep 4, also a sitting room with TV and a log fire in the winter, of which you can sit and relax after your day of walking or site seeing. In the summer you may sit in the garden and enjoy the peace and quiet, the scenic views around you have a barbecue or just watch the sun set. To the east you will see a large castle of which is Chipchase the Torday family reside there today.

This is a working farm belonging to a large estate the owners Allgood family live at Nunwick Hall. The village of Simonburn is a small hamlet part of the estate as is many of the surrounding farms. In the village there is a shop, a beautiful church, well worth a look, which is a 5 minute walk away. Surrounding areas is Hadrian’s Wall (with its many Roman sites), National Forest Park, Hexham Abbey and the historic town of Corbridge. We have easy access on uncrowded roads to Kielder, which is the largest man made forest and lake in Europe. Newcastle, Gateshead and the unspoilt Northumbrian Coast, Durham, Carlisle, Alnwick and the Scottish Borders are all within visiting distance.

This is an ideal location from which to enjoy the peaceful North Tyne Valley. You can go walking, cycling and nearby facilities offer opportunities to go horse riding horse racing, canoeing, bird watching or fishing of which the river North Tyne is renowned for its salmon.

Comfortable Stop for Tea

ELIZABETH B, Newcastle, United Kingdom
Driving through Northumberland we spotted a Tea Room sign and stopped of in the very pretty village of Simonburn. The tea room with its roaring fire is situated in the newly refurbished B&B, which also has a role as the village Shop. The delightful couple who run it took it on as a retirement project and it’s keeping them very busy. We didn’t require a bed for the night, but tuna melt paninis, salad and crisps and a pot of tea were very welcome. There is a varied menu and as we left three cyclists arrived for lunch. It’s a great place to stop off, dogs are welcome, there is a lovely outside area for warmer days.

Best Place We Stayed on Hadrians Wall

Tim C, Dorset, United Kingdom
We stayed here whilst walking Hadrians Wall, almost certainly the best place we stayed. We had had a day of bad weather and we cold and wet when Dick picked us up from Chesters Roman Fort. On arrival it felt that we had come home to mum. Margaret the owner greeted us with tea and cake, took our soaking wet footwear and stuffed them with newspaper before disappearing off with our shoes. The next time we saw our shoes they were dry and ready to wear. We enjoyed the home cooked eveni meal before retiring to bed. The room was perfect, warm, comfortable bed with en-suite which included a bath. Excellent breakfast the following morning before Dick dropped us back to Chesters Fort to continue our walk. Can't praise Duck and Margaret enough, really looked after us in their wonderful B&B. Thank you.

Warm, welcoming and engaging. Comfortable accommodation and brilliant meals. Run by lovely people. We enjoyed the conversations and the humour. It was no problem to he picked up and dropped off at nearby places. Would have been nice if we could have stayed longer.

Outstanding hospitality

Chris M, Claremont, California
Margaret, the owner, could not have been more welcoming. She dried out our wet boots, gave us hot tea on entry, and set up dinner for us at The Tea Rooms in Simonburn. Room was large, clean, comfortable, Wifi. Breakfast was great with healthy choices and good coffee. Highly recommended

Wonderful stay in June

RVoct2013, Ipswich, United Kingdom
Margaret is so welcoming and runs an excellent establishment. We enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal after a busy day walking Hadrians Wall. Extremely comfortable room overnight and an excellent breakfast the next morning. A good value packed lunch with roll, yogurt, biscuit, fruit and bottled water to see us on our way is also recommended for other travellers.
