Falstone Farm, which forms the most attractive small estates, is in a marvellous setting with an early 17th century listed farmhouse at its core. It has incredible charm and character and, unusually, retains many of its original features. The farmhouse dates from around 1604 with further additions being made in the 18th and early 19th century and more recently with the addition of the expansive kitchen/breakfast room.
South of the farmhouse is the bulk of the agricultural land lies along the banks of the River North Tyne, whilst to the south east, grouped around a cobble court yard, is a range of a vernacular farm buildings, typical of this part of Northumberland, which have been brilliantly and imaginatively converted to create four unique and individual holiday apartments within the spectacular development which is known as "Falstone Barns".
Arranged around the courtyard are the four five gold star award-winning holiday apartments, together with the barn containing the laundry, office and garage/store space. Planning permission and services are already in place to convert this latter building to holiday accommodation which would add a fifth apartment to the complex.
There are also two beautifully presented shepherds’ huts accommodating two people in each, providing useful additional income. They currently trade as "Posh Huts".
