To the rear of the Barn is a beautiful garden that enjoys sunshine from before noon to evening in summer and is wonderfully sheltered by the larger courtyard formation.

Outside the Barn swallows dart in the sky above and deer, foxes and buzzards form part of an abundance of wildlife that are often seen. In spring and summer guests can enjoy the cows grazing peacefully with their calves in the field beyond the Causeway whilst the sun rises over the sea beyond, one mile away.

The location is just perfect for holidays. The Farm is not far from the A1 but beautifully quiet, surrounded by fields home to cows and calves in Summer. Direct access south to Holy Island (10 mins) Bamburgh (15 mins) and all the other delights the Northumberland Coast and inland offers. The Barn is also well located to explore west into the Scottish Borders, (the market town of Kelso with Floors Castle is 20 minute drive) and north to Scotland's capital city Edinburgh (60 minute drive). There are views east towards the sea- Cocklawburn Beach and Cheswick Sands, (part of the Lindisfarne Nature Reserve) are 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk.
The walled town of Berwick upon Tweed is also a 5 minute drive north offering an excellent selection of supermarkets, shops bars, pubs and restaurants.
The property is located a private residents only farm road off the A1167 so it is beautifully quiet and safe. We have a bike store outside the front of the property so it is perfect for children and adults alike. There are lots of walks near the Barn- to the Beach, over the fields or into Berwick upon Tweed. There are two cafes within walking distance open 7 days a week for breakfasts, lunches, coffees and cake- the one at Borewell Farm also has children's play frame, swings and an art barn. At the end of the farm drive is also an outdoor shop selling lots of items for holiday makers.

This was a great luxury barn conversion. Very quiet rural location. Lovely coastal walks and even the weather obliged. - November 2016
Arrived and welcomed with fresh flowers, thoughtful provisions and very tasteful furnishings throughout.
Wonderful temporary home from home, a joy to come back to every evening after savouring the delights of Berwick upon Tweed and surrounding area. Owner very helpful and was there within 5 minutes to help us when technology had us stumped.
Every amenity and appliance made living in the cottage a joy. Will definitely recommend Causeway Barn to friends and family.
great holiday home , everything you need and more ! very comfortable and cosy , will definitely be back
The Causeway Barn is very well located for visiting interesting places eg Alnwick Castle and especially the gardens, Lindisfarne, Floors Castle, Farne Islands, Bamburgh Castle, St Abbs (little fishing village), and Craigside where Armstrong was the first person to generate hydro electricity.. We could have easily visited Edinburgh and Hadrian's wall, had time allowed. My NZ relatives and I were absolutely delighted with our stay.
The property is of a very high standard with excellent facilities.
The whole property was tastefully done in pale modern colours, was clean and well maintained. The kitchen/dinner was bright, spacious and fully equipped with patio doors leading to a private, well attended sitting area which gets the pm sun. The sitting room had the calming effect, with comfortable chairs, ideal for reading, watching TV or savouring the peace and quiet. The bedrooms enjoyed lovely land/sea views and were, again tastefully fitted with comfortable beds. While the combed ceilings gave character, they proved a little challenging in the en suite (tall people). This did not spoil our stay.
The area is full of things to do, places to visit and things to see.
We would highly recommend this property and would like to return.
Cocklawburn beach is 1 mile from the Barn, within walking distance. Cheswick and Goswick sands that lead over to Holy Island is a 5 minute drive. Bamburgh beach is 15 minute drive.
