This was like a new build property, but with oodles of character - it was absolutely immaculate, the rooms were spacious, the views at the back were beautiful, the furnishings were top quality and tasteful... I would love to be able to live somewhere like this! Just 25 mins from Newcastle city centre (ideal for our two trips to watch Newcastle United!), and very close to A1 as a launch pad up to Northumbria, and a couple of miles from the A69 and Hadrian's Wall territory. The next time I venture back north, this will be my preferred destination - I would even arrange my holiday dates around the property's availability to secure another stay there. RECOMMENDED!!!

The cottage has everything you need and the owner kindly left basics such as tea bags, sugar, washing up liquid etc and even a bottle of wine and cookies. We love Northumberland and this was a great base to explore it from.
