Fabulous food and set in a magical area of the Upper Coquet Valley. The food is brilliant and huge portions are welcome after day in the hills. The owner of the tearoom is Eunice Tait and she is just the loveliest lady you could wish to meet. Sit with a lovely bacon and brie ciabatta, a big mug of tea and marvel at the awesome scenery whilst having a wonderful conversation with Eunice's Husband and hill farmer Ian Tait.
Absolutely perfect.

Back to beautiful Barrowburn Farm Tea Room today. Excellent food and excellent service as always. A full English breakfast which would make a king happy and a wonderful home made lemon meringue pie to die for. The icing on the cake, as always, the nicest family you could ever wish to meet who run the tea room the lovey Taits.
If you want a genuine, friendly Northumberland welcome with whole and hearty food then this is the best place you could ever wish for. Thank you Eunice for your lovely food. And thank you, Eunice, Ian and James Tait for your friendship.

Another visit to Barrowburn this week, our first proper walk this year. Snow still on the tops so walking very claggy but we managed a four mile hike up from Buckram's Bridge onto Lamb Hill back down to Blindburn -the names are actually the give away, this is isolated drover country on the Borders. Four of the country's cleanest rivers are here, and I swim in the little pools when it's warm. Not this week, however, but mild enough with excellent views. Army on extra special manouevers on the ranges(artillery, aircraft, infantry) but no shooting at the weekends(check MOD info always) and always free access on the north side of the river. New treat is the Upper Cocquetdale Archaeological Society's excavations of a rare undershot fulling mill in the river just above Barrowburn.(booklet and cd available to buy in the tea rooms) We take a picnic to eat on the hills and then the real treat, tea at Ian and Eunice's tearooms(open daily Weds to Sun and Bank Hols, day time). This has to be the remotest, most picturesque tea room in the country -actually it is one room in their farmhouse, with four tables, open coal fire, georgeous views. There is a fully equipped outside lav, voluntary collecting tin for Mountain Rescue, car parking adequate for the numbers, outside seating if fine,info on the National Park, leaflets, postcards, icecreams and...Eunice's fabulous home made cakes, loads of tea and Ian with all the local news.The Taits have farmed here for five generations and what they don't know about the area isn't worth knowing. They are now also joining up with the local astronomy society, as well as these archaeologists, (in which there are two Fellow of the Royal Soc of Astronomers) to offer a limited number of night time events as the National Park now has Dark Sky status and this is basically the least (no) polluted part. They also offer basic camping barn, tent area , b and b and self catering deer hut to Pennine Way walkers , and everyone else who wants peace, quiet, fresh air and a dearth of people except for the friendly ones you just chat to over tea.
Thanks again, Ian and Eunice, hope you have a good season(they are of course, genuine hill farmers as well) and you know we'll be back.

In delightful place with stunning views. Owners very welcoming and friendly. Roaring fire going, and seemed really busy. Nice pot of hot tea but unfortunately cake was a bit dry. We will go back but hope food will be a bit nicer.
