The property

Lowick 3 miles. This delightful romantic retreat is situated in the charming, peaceful village of Bowsden, 3 miles from Lowick. Once the home of the village blacksmith, this pretty, 200 year old stone cottage has been lovingly modernised to a high standard. This welcoming single-storey, semi-detached cottage offers bright, sunny rooms, lovely home-made furnishings and an open fire for the odd chilly evening curled up in front of the television. Outside there is a furnished patio area and a well-maintained, south-facing sheltered garden, perfect for sitting out with a book and a glass of wine, whilst enjoying the last of the evening sunshine and reminiscing about the day’s activities. The perfect base for discovering Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, this charming holiday home is a great place to return to after a day exploring this beautiful county at any time of year. The causeway to Holy Island is 10 minutes away, the Heritage Coast with its wonderful vast, sandy beaches, and the impressive castles of Bamburgh, Lindisfarne, Dunstanburgh and Alnwick are also all within easy reach. The extensive range of maps and walking guides offer a multitude of ideas for rambles in the nearby Cheviot Hills, and cycle rides can be enjoyed along the quiet, picturesque roads of the area. A comfortable, homely cottage for couples or small families within this superb part of Northumberland.

    • “Relaxing retreat”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Very clean and comfortable cottage, with off road parking.We had a very relaxing and peaceful stay at the cottage with everything there that we needed.Only a stones throw away from some of the best beaches and coast lines you will ever see,and at night you could almost hear a pin drop.Only criticism is the double bed was a tad to hard and took some getting used to, but this is down to personal choice.The kitchen and bathroom were functional and the living room cosy at night.Overall a great place to stay if you want to get away from the hum drum of everyday life,a good place to recharge your batteries.”
