Directions

From the South:

  • Leave the A1(M) at junction 58, and take the A68 to Corbridge, the route bypasses Corbridge, (though you can go that way if you wish; quite a good "8 till late" Co-op, off licence & various places to eat, only 15 minutes from your destination)
  • Carry on up the A68 to Stagshaw Roundabout.
  • Where there is a pub called the Errington Arms, here you head North still on the A68 for about 6 ½ miles and turn left, signposted Hexham.
  • Travel 1.4 miles and turn right, signposted Barrasford.
  • At the tee junction turn right and go 1 ½ miles through Barrasford then you turn right to Gunnerton.
  • The cottages are on the right in the middle of the village just past the phone box.

From the North:

  • Take the A68 south, taking care to stay with it where it joins the A696 shortly after Rochester.
  • From this junction travel 12.9 miles then turn right, marked Barrasford Park (this turn off can easily be missed)
  • Follow this road for about 2 ½ miles into the village of Gunnerton, the cottages are on the left, the turning just before the phone box. 

From the West:

From the East:

"Beautiful cottage with fabulous soft furnishings. Our city feet enjoyed the under floor heating. Thank you for your extremely warm welcome and a really fun impromptu evening. Great place to see in the New Year."

A Living History

Southlands is a small, 37-acre working farm with a story stretching back hundreds of years. We believe the farmhouse is one of a handful of mediaeval Northumbrian longhouses built during the reign of Henry VIII.

These days, the cottages are a little more insulated than they might have been then, and a lot more comfortable for our guests!
