Blue Hemmel | Off Grid Barn Conversion
Blue Hemmel is a former livestock building in the Northumberland National Park. A Hemmel is defined as ‘a simple shelter usually in a field for cattle or hay’. Blue Hemmel stood empty and derelict for years before we were instructed to assist in converting the property into a holiday let. Power is provided by a ground mounted solar array, an off grid battery pack and a back up generator. Fresh water is provided by a bore hole.
Blue Hemmel is an Off Grid holiday let in the wilds of the Northumberland National Park. The property provides peace, space and a chance to get away from the stresses of our day to day lives.
The property is a traditional conversion on the outside. All original features remain in situ, from the arched stone openings to the natural slate roof. The interior design however is open plan and contemporary. The property provides a large living space with kitchen, dining and living space. The three bedrooms are all doubles with the master being ensuite. The unsightly old steel barn has been reduced and re-clad and now provides a plant room and games room for visitors.
