This is a superb single-storey stone building converted into a cottage with sliding glass doors that light the entire property and allow fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. With wooden flooring throughout and a paved patio directly through the glass doors, there’s plenty of room for people and two dogs to move, relax and enjoy some fresh air in a breathtaking setting.
Nature lovers, walkers, bikers and hikers are spoilt for choice from this spot due to the network of paths left by disused railways, not to mention the local river network feeding the Aln. Spend the morning roaming the local hills and moors and end up in Alnwick or Rothbury for a good feed and some r&r. Take a short drive to Rothbury for real countryside produce and hospitality, or head eastwards to the seaside for some locally caught fish with superb chips.
The historic landmarks all around the area should keep grown-ups interested, while Alnwick Castle and Gardens is a place for all the family. Dogs and nature lovers will love the 64km long Northumberland Coast AONB. For other delights, Newcastle upon Tyne awaits just to the south. At the end of the day, come home to an exceptional cottage in a very special place.
