WELCOME to HENSHAW BARN - a beautiful rustic building deep in the heart of Hadrians Wall country.

During its agricultural life the barn provided storage space for hay and welcome shelter for cattle, now it is a much loved family home for Pauline and John and their two setters.

The focus throughout the barn conversion has been to remain true to the strength and simplicity of the building. Original A-frame beams have been preserved, and french oak beams added to the ground floor. Beautiful oak doors add warmth to the exposed stone, whilst a huge wood burning stove is an additional enhancement. Furniture is predominantly country pine and oak, complemented by opulent fabrics, and squashy sofas smothered in cushions.

Modern amenities matter:- The marriage of the old with the new arises with the installation throughout of super efficient under floor heating; fabulous power showers; ample hot water; wonderfully comfortable beds; snuggly duvets and quality linen; luscious toiletries; and the  luxury of fluffy towels and cosy bathrobes.

As an added enticement chef John provides fresh, locally sourced, seasonal food.. wholesome and substantial breakfasts, and very delicious evening meals....designed to excite the eye and please the palate. 

Henshaw Barn is within walking distance of all the major heritage attractions, including the Roman forts of Housesteads and Vindolanda. Annual excavations continue to unearth precious and often priceless artefacts, all of which can be seen in the museums dotted along the length of the Wall. 

The picturesque market towns of Hexham and Corbridge lie 12 miles along the Tyne Valley, and are home to delights such as Hexham Abbey, traditional farmers markets and a host of unique independent shops. Great historic houses and castles pepper the region, with beautiful beaches, wild stretches of coast and our magnificent National Park, all within easy reach.

Perfect down to the last detail

Maxine F,
We only stayed one night but were welcomed immediately. Pauline is a great hostess and John is a fantastic chef. We had a lovely cosy dinner with delicious home cooked food. Breakfast excellent. Great attention to detail everywhere.

What a gem ! We had an unforgettable time at Henshaw Barn - ideal location, first class hospitality, fine dining, and great company. Pauline and John gave us a door into the gem which is Northumberland, their attention to detail, enthusiasm and commitment to providing a complete memorable package made our stay at Henshaw Barn perfect. We could ask for nothing more, we will certainly be returning to recharge our batteries and experiences. Thank you both.

Simply outstanding!

Tanglewind, Birmingham, United Kingdom
This was our first visit to Henshaw Barn and it exceeded our expectations, even beyond all the glowing reviews. Yes, the accommodation is comfortable and spotless. Yes, the food is worthy of Michelin stars. Yes, the location is brilliant for exploring the area. But beyond all these things is the warmth and consideration of hosts Pauline and John who go out of their way to make your stay something really special. There is so much attention to detail, from the discreet providing of timely drinks to the supply of freshly picked vegetables from the kitchen garden or the sympathetic adaptation of the delicious menu to suit your tastes. This really is a special place run by special people and a perfect holiday experience. We are looking forward to repeating it!

The gold standard!

I am lost for superlatives. The cooking was amazing and the room was beautiful and well appointed. Fancy arriving after a hard day walking Hadrian's Wall to be greeted by warm, freshly made scones. But most of all, we were bowled over by the warmth of the welcome from Pauline and John, a welcome that was as warm as the North east is fabled for, Thank you. We will be back.

Very comfortable b&b with excellent food

Helen S, London, United Kingdom
We had a great stay with Pauline and John, who were very welcoming. We had a lovely room with a large comfortable bed, a well stocked ensuite bathroom and lots of hot drinks and biscuits in the room. Everything was spotlessly clean. The best bit was the breakfasts and evening meals - John was a professional chef for many years and produced fantastic meals on the 2 nights we stayed.
