about the cottage

a sunny kitchen with stone flags and a big wooden dining table...leads through a stable door to a pleasant garden...perfect for barbecues...

an open-plan sitting room with inglenook fireplace, cast-iron stove and a couple of comfy sofas...

two big bright bedrooms...fluffy towels and crisp cotton sheets, lovely wooden dressing tables and plenty of cupboard space...

an L-shaped shower bath - for a brisk hot shower to wake you up or a relaxing bath after a long walk...

We renovated and rebuilt this lovely cottage twenty years ago and hundreds of people have enjoyed it over the intervening years. It is full of character and homely details, thoughtfully furnished and beautifully maintained. You are guaranteed a warm welcome to a wonderful place from which to explore the many aspects of Northumberland. Plenty of local information is provided including maps and walking guides for your use.


We have had a wonderful time, enjoying walks with breath-taking views and the cosiness of the cottage. The hospitality and little details ( I loved the slippers!) made it a perfect holiday.

This cottage is the cleanest and best equipped place we’ve ever stayed in and we’ve stayed in quite a few !
