Things To Do in Prudhoe
The property was a blacksmith’s workshop, built in the 1850s. Its solid stone construction is perfect for this holiday home conversion, and it retains its authentic feel.
This is accentuated by its location, which is hidden from the modern world up a private country lane. Just down that lane, the road leads into the Northumbrian village of Ovington, itself something of a hidden gem.
The village has a social club, and a restaurant if you’re feeling too lazy to cook. The immediate area is ripe for exploring, and your furry friend will be pulling on its lead all the way.
Past Ovington is the larger settlement of Ovingham, which has a small country town feel about it. Here you’ll find a pub with plenty to eat and drink, including water and treats for your four legged friend. Ovingham is one of the towns and villages typical of the Tyne Valley, which has its own main line railway line.
The nearest National Trust property is Cherryburn, which sits just across the River Tyne from Ovington. This important part of the area’s heritage includes block printing classes, if you get your timing right. Prudhoe Castle is a Norman fortress and well run visitor attraction, with dog friendly facilities and staff. On the other side of the Tyne, and criss-crossing it to the west, is Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. There are many places to visit along the way, with dog friendly visitor centres and planned walks.
To the east, a train ride or short car journey will take you and your four legged friend/s to Newcastle upon Tyne, or just a bit further to the coast at Tynemouth.
The Smithy is ideally placed to let you get away from it all. If peace and quiet is what you’re after, you’re sure to find it here.
The private lane which leads from the cottage gives you and your canine companion/s access to the beautiful Tyne Valley, with all its dog friendly visitor attractions and wide open countryside. The area is full of delightful towns and villages, with plenty of places to stop, shop, eat and drink.
For a quiet base to plan a holiday, The Smithy takes some beating.
