With a twin room and a double bedroom, this is an ideal property for a small family, a group of friends or two couples to enjoy a few days of walking and sight seeing.

Set in an isolated position on the edge of the Northumberland National Park is this charming, stone built cottage, just three miles from Otterburn and seven miles from Bellingham. This wonderful, single-storey property is peacefully located in the surrounding countryside whilst the open-plan living area and delightful lawned garden with patio are the perfect accommodation for a relaxing break. There are great facilities for fishing, horse riding and golf nearby, as well as Hadrian’s Wall and a variety of beautiful National Trust homes and gardens.


Just right
A comfortable, well appointed cottage in a peaceful location with stunning views of the moors from the garden. Sitting in the garden looking at the stars (I have never seen so many) while enjoying a glass of wine was very special. The location made it easy to get to Hadrian's Wall, Alnwick and Cragside. Looking forward to visiting again.

The cottage is clean, tidy, well kitted out & the owners were immensely friendly & helpful. I could not fault the place.

It was a home from home, cottage was perfect really enjoyed our week there. It is set in beautiful scenery and hosts Ann and John are nearby if needed otherwise they leave you to enjoy your holiday. Would definitely go back again

beautiful cottage
My wife and i plus a small dog had a wonderful weeks holiday, the cottage was well maintained and John and Ann the owners where so friendly and helpful without being intrusive , the scenery was outstanding the forest and mountain, the cottage is only 11 miles to Scottish boarder there where so many places to visit we didn't fit them all in so hopefully we will be back next year, thank you Ann and John .from Heather and Les .

The perfect holiday cottage for a family or couple with a dog.
Cosy cottage with expansive views of the surrounding countryside. Otterburn is only 3 miles away where you can buy supplies in the village shop then visit Otterburn Mill, the cafe is well worth a visit and you can take dogs in the shop and cafe. Hexham and Hadrians Wall is about a 30 minute drive on quiet roads, Hexham Abbey is well worth a visit as is the market. Keillor Forest is a short drive and there are footpaths all over the place. The cottage itself is owned by the very helpful, friendly Ann and John. It is light, very clean, welcoming and has everything you need for your self catering holiday. We cannot wait to return.
