Our Inspector's view

This ivy-clad country inn is located in the peaceful village of Barrasford, close to Hadrian's Wall, and is surrounded by the undulating grandeur of the Northumberland hills. Bedrooms differ in size but all offer comfort along with some thoughtful extras. The three dining rooms have rustic furniture and the walls hung with pictures of the inn in bygone days. Owner and chef, Michael Eames works to a modern English template, the emphasis firmly placed on produce from local estates and punchy flavours for his award-winning restaurant. Salmon fishing with a ghillie can be arranged on the North Tyne River.

About the area

Discover Northumberland

If it’s history you’re after, there’s heaps of it in Northumberland. On Hadrian’s Wall you can imagine scarlet-cloaked Roman legionaries keeping watch for painted Pictish warriors while cursing the English weather and dreaming of home. Desolate battlefield sites and hulking fortresses such as Alnwick, Dunstanburgh, Bamburgh and Warkworth are reminders that this, until not so very long ago, was a contested border region. The ruins of Lindisfarne bear witness to the region’s early Christian history.

Northumberland also has some of Britain’s best beaches. On summer days, and even in winter, you’ll see surfers and other brave souls making the most of the coast. Inland, there are some great walks and bike rides in the dales of the Cheviot Hills and the Simonsides – just hilly enough to be interesting, without being brutally steep. There's dramatic scenery in the High Pennines, where waterfalls plunge into deep valleys, and there are swathes of heather-scented moorland. Northumberland National Park covers over 400 square miles of moorland and valleys with clear streams and pretty, stone-built villages. It’s just the place for wildlife watching too. You’ll find flocks of puffins, guillemots and other seabirds around the Farne Islands, and seals and dolphins offshore.
