Welcome to the Old Hayloft

This cozy two-bed room cottage is a perfect base for couples or families with small children wanting to explore Northumberland. Providing stunning views of the Northumberland countryside, and close to the Northumberland National Park, the Old Hayloft offers some excellent walking on its doorstep. Walking guides and maps are available. The property is within easy driving distance of National Trust properties at Wallington and Cragside, the attractions of Kielder forest and reservoir, Hadrians Wall and the market towns of Hexham and Alnwick.

As a family with school age children we know how frustrating it is to find prices bumped up for school holidays, therefore for all half term breaks we have maintained the normal price for that time of the year.

We look forward to welcoming you to Raylees Farm.

From the south

Most routes from the south (A1(M) and A19) will end up going round Newcastle. From Newcastle you will need to take the A696 which is signposted for Jedburgh and the Airport. Raylees Farm is approximately 28 miles north of Newcstle on the A696. The farm is at the junction betweeen the A696 and the road to Elsdon. You will know when you are getting near when you see the radio masts at Ottercops.

From the West

If you are travelling from the south west via the M6 the quickest route to Raylees Farm is to take the A69 to Hexham and then turn off onto the A68 near Corbridge. After passing through West Woodburn you right to Otterburn. Passing Otterburn Mill you turn right again at the T-junction. This is the A696. Travelling south ignore the first turn to Elsdon and continue on the A696. About 2 miles later is the second turn to Elsdon and Raylees Farm. A more scenic route from the M6 is to turn north off the A69 at Haltwistle and pick up the Military Road (B6318) which follows Hadrians Wall and offers spectacular views over the Tyne Valley. This connects with the A68 after Chollerford.

From the North

If you are travelling from the North you can either use the A1(M) and cut accross country from Alnwick via Rothbury. Alternatively you could travel from Jedburgh using the A68 to Otterburn.
