A warm welcome
We are Mark and Debbie and we run Sycamore Cottage & Glamping from our Northumberland family farm. We are third generation livestock farmers who live on the farm with our three children.
We offer something for everyone, from couples to larger families. Please take a look at our accommodation options below to find the perfect stay for you. We love making your visit special, from our electronic guest guide to the locally sourced welcome treats, farm tours and our cosy BBQ hut - all little touches which make us unique.
Set in the heart of Northumberland, ideally located for the rolling countryside, dramatic coastlines and impressive castles, Sycamore Cottage is located in Barrasford, a pretty and quiet village which sits along the river North Tyne which runs from Kielder reservoir, an ancient village lying in the shadow of Haughton Castle.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us, we look forward to welcoming you.

What our guests say
The most relaxed family break we have experienced. Everything is so well organised, from initial booking, additional extras, online welcome information, self check in etc.
The Cedar pod was cosy, warm and comfortable and the kids loved the bunk beds. The showers were amazing and beds are so comfortable, we always had a refreshed nights sleep. Kitchen is really well organised, a spacious fridge and lots of utensils, pots and pans if you fancy cooking. There is ample decking space in front to sit outside and enjoy the views. One night, we spotted our first shooting star! Debbie has a lovely welcome pack organised which is a lovely touch and much enjoyed. We hired the BBQ hut on our last night and it was an amazing, unique experience. The Sycamore pods are in a great location, with so much to do in the vicinity.
Most importantly, Debbie & Mark are local, so warm and welcoming and have lots of personal recommendations of places to visit next May.
An exceptional stay...
