This idyllic cottage, situated in a wonderful location, close to a working farm and stunning scenery, traditional and cosy everything you could want to unwind and relax.
Sleeping four, this quaint, traditional stone cottage on the English/Scottish border makes a delightful countryside escape for families, boasting magnificent uninterrupted views and an abundance of walking routes on the doorstep. Of course, no family holiday is complete without bringing the whole gang, so bring along the four-legged members of your pack too - they’re sure to love the pup-friendly garden and countryside beyond.
A bright and airy entrance hall offers enough space to kick off those muddy walking boots and clean dirty paws before you flop in front of the wood burner in the homely lounge. Throughout the cottage, rooms have been thoughtfully designed with your comfort in mind, giving a true home-from-home feel that will make it hard to leave. Wake up in the beautifully furnished bedrooms to garden views and spot the horses grazing in the adjacent paddocks. Enjoy breakfast alfresco in the enclosed garden, savouring the country air and inspiring scenery.
You’ll be spoilt for choice here, with plenty to see and do. Witness gliders soar overhead as you walk the dogs across the Cheviot Hills (9 miles), enjoying the breathtaking vistas. Here you can also cycle or horse ride, making it one of the area’s must-visits. Holy Island (21 miles) and Bamburgh Castle (26 miles) are also within driving distance, while Alnwick Castle - famous for not only its spectacular gardens, but also its starring role in the Harry Potter films - is 29.5 miles away, near the Northumberland coast. Closer to your homely accommodation, visit the nearby Mindrum Garden (0.5 miles), with free admission for cottage guests.
