how to get here

Taking the A696 from Newcastle, you pass Kirkwhelpington and the Knowesgate Motel; a couple of miles after these look for a right turn signposted Elsdon - this takes you onto a single track road right beside a farmhouse (Raylees). Townfoot cottage is the first house on the left as you come into the village. Go through the double gates and park in the drive in front of a wooden barn which is right beside the cottage. If you are using Satnav, the postcode is NE19 1BH.

A gorgeous cottage and a very warm welcome. Thank you so much, we have really enjoyed our few days and wish we could stay for longer...thank you for the wine and chocs, the tea and cake on arrival and the lovely Xmas tree.
