From butchers, bakers, bank, restaurants and many other little unique shops. The cottage is very spacious (4 adults and 1 child in our party). It is very modern, comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed. We felt right at home, from the moment we walked in. We took a few trips up to Wooler Common, this is accessible by walking or car. Was a lovely walk in the forest, with a stream and lake. We spotted deer on 3 occasions which was lovely. We ate at the Milan Restaurant in the village, it was a lovely setting and the food was amazing. I would recommend booking. We also ate at the Tankerville arms, this was again a lovely old style pub/restaurant and service was great. We went on a number of days out, Alnwick Gardens and castle is a must. Spent the full day here and you will not be disappointed. We drove across to Holy Island for a day out which was nice. The beaches around here are amazing. Also Bamburgh castle and bamburgh village is lovely, with free parking which was an advantage. We went to seahouses for the day, took a boat trip around the Farne Islands to see the puffins and seals. Well worth a visit. All this was within a 20 minute drive from the cottage in Wooler,so everything is close by. Thank you, we will be booking to stay here again (on more than one occasion), and would highly recommend to anyone who loves Northumberland. Perfect for families or couples.

There was plenty of space in the cottage yet it was also warm and cosy. We also enjoyed the outside space and found the location great for visiting along the coast and other local places. We also enjoyed a daytime to Edinburgh. The kitchen was extremely well kitted out and we all fell in love with the warmth of the Aga. Cooking on it was a new experience which we liked and made some delicious meals. Thank-you!
