A lovely cottage over three floors, sleeping four people in two bedrooms.

Chestnut is a lovely cottage spread over three floors. With two en-suite bedrooms, a second floor king-size double and a ground floor twin, it sleeps four people comfortably. The cottage also has an open plan living area with a kitchen, dining area and sitting area. Outside, there is a private garden area, shared use of the owners' garden and off road parking. Chestnut can be booked with two other cottages on site, and together they make a great touring base for larger parties.


The cottage is a fantastic resource in a truly amazing area. Some great places to visit and a home from home to return to at the end of the day. The lower bathroom is straight out of a magazine!

A peaceful location and a beautiful cottage in a stunning area.
First time we have been to Northumberland. It's a beautiful place with lots of quaint villages, walks from the front door, friendly owners, it was a well deserved week break for us both and our jack Russell. I will definitely return, comfortable bed, good sky TV free view, Internet access, we did a trip a day, Hadrains wall, waterfalls, bbq, watched lambs being born on a local farm, forest walks.

I think that this is possibly the most beautiful cottage that I have stayed in. The facilities were superb and so comfortable. The cottage was secluded and private without being cut off. The hosts were welcoming, friendly and available without being intrusive. I have already recommended Chestnut to friends and family and hope to return for another visit.
