Broomhouse Farmhouse Accommodation

Broomhouse itself, has three rooms to offer guests luxurious surroundings in which to unwind. Large bedrooms, king size beds, sofa or chairs, ensuite private adjoining bathrooms or smaller ensuite with walk in shower. Relax in the grand drawing room, open fire, books, magazines, games, radio plays, or just enjoy the peace and quiet and stunning views. Enjoy the two acres of gardens, a mixture of wild woodlands, to formal lawns. We have beehives looked after by Chain Bridge Honey Farm, so much of the garden is left wild to attract the bees and butterflies. Should you want a bit of shade or shelter from a shower, there are two summer houses to choose from, as well as chairs and benches dotted throughout the garden. A large secluded fire pit, we are happy to light this at your request.

Don’t just take our word for how good we are, read some of the testimonials below –

Beautiful tasteful manor house set in lush grounds. Original sash windows with shutters, heritage wall colours. Room number 4, very spacious, large wardrobe and ample drawer space. Big thick fluffy white bathsheets and robes. Hospitality tray was good, including Lyons coffee bags. Genius and delish. Large bathroom with shower over bath. Garden view from bedroom. Close to nature surrounded by tall trees, shrubs and plants, and the feeders attracted birds including a woodpecker. We ate a pizza in the Summer House one evening overlooking the lawns. So pleased we visited Lindisfarne and later on watched tide came in along causeway. Still more we didn’t get to visit so look forward to next time.

The location is 300 yards approx. from the A1, however the setting is so quiet and peaceful, standing in its large gardens, there is NO road noise. We stayed 4 nights, from the 7th August, could have stayed longer and still found plenty more places within easy distance to visit. The house is a LARGE Georgian manor house, with Large rooms, and very well furnished, and spotlessly clean. Large bed, shower above bath, plenty of hot water, Big lounge at visitors disposal. Parking NO problem, just at side of house. Its was a pleasure to walk round the gardens, with 2 summerhouses and seating areas. Our hosts were Mandy & Bob, Very very helpful and with plenty of information regarding the area, especially places to eat on an evening. Breakfast, this we found to our liking it was serve yourself continental, with a good selection, from 7.30 am to about 10.00am. Weekends we were told it was Full English. We would both highly recommend Broomhouse Farm, for a one night stop for passing through, or more to really have a good look at the area.
