We were driving to Budle Bay when snow storms struck. Our original venue was unreachable and the A1 was closed in both directions. Googling led us to Beacon Hill, just 4 miles away and Alun came to our rescue, they had just one cottage available.
Chris came in his pick-up to direct us through the snow drifts. They were so helpful. Oak cottage was gorgeous. Incredibly well appointed with a wood-burning stove and wine waiting for us. The whole place is beautifully done with spa, games room and stunning views- we couldn't have been snowed-in anywhere better!
It was so lovely, I've booked to go back in May to one of the Shepherd's huts.
... we still love coming to Beacon Hill for our annual family gathering! It must be nearly 11 years we have had the pleasure of staying. Over this time period the accommodation, facilities and grounds have been beautifully kept. Some years we haven't even left the location instead preferring to stay and take full benefit of everything on site, from the pool through to the trampolines, Megs lake and the famous sausage sizzle too! Already booked to come back next July (making it 12 years) and October too! In fact next year we're brining friends with us.
Just returned from a wonderful two night stay in Bluegrass, one of two amazing shepherd's huts located at Beacon Hill farm. Wow!! This hut really is something very special. It has been designed beautifully with attention to detail. It has been built and fitted out with quality furnishings and fixtures that really do make all the difference when away from home. Lovely comfortable bed, pillows and bedding and what an amazing view to wake up to each morning. We were lucky enough to have the sun shining on our faces through the open bedroom window, listening to the morning chorus which was heaven!! Fantastic little bathroom with a powerful and spacious shower with lovely large towels and a fab porthole window which I absolutely love! Great kitchen kitted out with high quality accessories and utensils and a spacious fridge. We used the outdoor firepit during our stay, fire lighting accessories were plentiful in the storage areas at the rear of the hut. We didnt need to use the log burner inside the hut as we had good weather. In the colder months I imagine the log burner and central heating makes Bluegrass exceptionally warm and cosy.
Little thoughtful touches like fresh milk in the fridge, lemon drizzle cake and fresh roses make all the difference. Alun is a lovely chap who makes you feel very welcome indeed and has something very special at Beacon Hill.
Thank you Alun x
My husband, our three children and my parents booked to stay at Beaconhill through a recommendation from someone who came into my workplace. The person who recommended it couldn't promote it enough and we found out why! What a fantastic place to visit. It has everything, immaculate accommodation, great facilities, breathtaking scenery and such approachable proprietors who were very accommodating. We used the Spa facilities, the kids were in the swimming pool at least twice a day. Everyone enjoyed spending time in the games room and using the tennis courts. Places we have visited before have never offered such a welcome and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

This is our 5th visit to Beacon Hill Farm. The cottages have everything you could wish for and more. The surrounding countryside is magnificent and wonderful to walk around. The farm itself is well situated for visiting the towns, cities and villages nearby as well as Holy Island. The spa facilities are wonderful and relaxing - go later in the day and you could be the facilities to yourself.
The welcome from Alun is always cheerful and he remembers details about you, that amaze me considering he has so many guests.
We left feeling refreshed, revived and ready to enter the world of world once more.
