The property

This is a mid-terrace stone-built cottage in the centre of the picturesque village of Allendale in south west Northumberland.

This luxurious cottage provides the ideal base for a family or couples looking to explore this delightful area.

Retaining much of its original character, the cottage is comfortably furnished and has exposed beams in the sitting room with a wonderful open fire to sit by and relax.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with a good-sized dining area, making it a great social space to enjoy some good home-cooked meals after a day out and about exploring the area.

There is also a games room where the kids or even big kids can enjoy a game of table tennis.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both decorated to a high standard, one with an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom also.

To the outside is an enclosed patio garden with furniture; a good place for some alfresco dining or even relaxing with something chilled.

A few minutes’ walk takes you to the facilities of the village of Allendale with a number of shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy.

There is also a local hairdressers and beauty salon offering a range of relaxing treatments.

The surrounding area is perfect for walking, cycling and bird watching.

Further afield, discover the history of this former lead-mining area at Allenheads Heritage Centre or visit the bustling town of Hexham with its 7th century abbey and colourful weekly market.

The surrounding area is waiting to be explored with the High and Low Force Waterfalls, Killhope mines, Durham and Hadrian’s Wall all within easy reach.

If you are feeling more adventurous then Slaley Hall outdoor activities centre is a mere 18miles away.

They have a range of activities from quad biking to archery to clay pigeon shooting.

Once finished why not relax in Slaley Hall’s spa and pool area.

If heights are more your thing, then why not try Go Ape at Matfen Hall again a mere 23 miles away.

Closer to Allendale there is the Sinderhope Pony Trekking Centre and for the more sporty visitors why not have a round of golf at Allendale Golf Club.

A little further afield can take you to the Heritage Coastline or the Northern Lake District for a good day out.
