Tips from a local
For a fun day out for the whole family, take a trip to The Alnwick Garden, just 5 minutes down the road. There’s so much to do, from strolling the poisonous garden to the spectacular cascade fountains.

Owners of Apple Tree Barn
We asked Lisa and Richard what inspired them to have Apple Tree Barn and what they like about the local area!
“For us, nothing can beat the peace and tranquillity of Apple Tree Barn. Our love affair with the outdoors begins with pristine countryside on our doorstep. We love to lace up our walking boots and head out. Days of blue skies away from the crowds at nearby Boulmer beach and nights of colourful sunsets enjoyed with a G&T in hand from our cosy summerhouse”
