A stunning stone barn conversion with those extra special touches in one of Northumberland’s most scenic areas. Set in Northumbria’s National Park on a working farm you cannot fail to relax here.

Set in the tiny hamlet of Rochester in the Cheviot foothills, this cosy one bedroom cottage is an idyllic retreat for a couple and their four-legged friend. With a working farm next door and rugged moors as far as the eye can see, it’s great for couples who enjoy hiking and exploring the great outdoors.

Inside, the converted barn is spacious and welcoming, with a fantastic corner sofa and roaring wood burner in the lounge, just the job for kicking back after long days outside. Step up into the farmhouse kitchen with a large table and exposed stone arch to the lounge, giving an open feel without losing that cosiness. Long lie-ins are a must in the four-poster bedroom with its large, stylish en-suite. Fido will love nosing around the enclosed garden while you sit back and stargaze from the private hot tub.

The location here is a dream for walkers and cyclists, with 400 square miles of countryside to explore on the doorstep. The Cheviots, around 20 miles away, have plenty more trails of varying difficulty – the more energetic will enjoy the summit hike from Langleeford which takes you 815m to the highest hill in the range. For a change of scenery, the coast is less than 40 miles away. Head to the fishing village of Amble and take the hound puffin-spotting on Coquet Island.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

As soon as we arrived it felt comfortable and cosy. Extremely quiet area considering being on a working farm. Just a short walk from being up on the moors with breath taking views and down the road from beautiful forest walks. Very central for most site seeing days out, especially if you like Roman history. Will definitely be going back.

Booked cottage as wanted a quiet location and a hot tub. Situated just off A68. Accommodation is very well clean and well equipped. Great location to explore Kielder, The Cheviots, The Borders andacross to the coast beyond Alnwick. Enjoyable days out particularly walking Windy Ghyll and great to return to the hot tub in the evening.
