The Barn at Beal, as the name suggests, was formerly a cart shed/barn built in the early 19th Century. Disused, redundant and in need of repair, the Smith family who have been farming 1000 acres of arable land at Beal since 1972, saw the potential of the attractive building in its unique location. In 2008 they diversified and converted the shed into a Coffee Shop & Restaurant.
Barn at Beal Gift Shop
Within the Restaurant we also have a small Gift Shop selling quirky gifts along with home made jams & chutneys, local honey and honey products and the infamous Lindisfarne Mead! There is also a fine selection of artwork by local photographers and artists adorning the walls and some excellent cards and post cards.

Planning an Event?
At The Barn at Beal we don’t offer ‘packages’. We help to create a memorable experience for each couple who holds a Wedding Reception, Civil Partnership Reception or Private Function with us.
From the picture windows in the Restaurant – or from out on the patio, you’ll have the backdrop of Lindisfarne and the Northumberland coast for your Celebration.
The Local Area
The Barn at Beal stands in a National Nature Reserve (NNR). These are nationally important sites that are carefully managed on behalf of the Nation by either Natural England or other approved trusts such as Wildlife trusts.
The site is also in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). These sites are protected by law for the benefit of those who live and work within them, and for the enjoyment of their many visitors. The primary purpose of the AONB is to enhance and conserve the natural beauty of the landscape.
There are only two AONB’s in the North East; the Northumberland coast and North Pennines and Beal Farm lies within the Northumberland coast AONB. The panoramic view from the terrace at the Barn is second to none! On a clear day you can see from Goswick Sands to the North, to the East – Holy Island & Lindisfarne Castle with the Farne Islands behind, Ross sands and Bamburgh Castle to the South East, it is a breathtaking view.
