The property

Chatton 1.5 miles.

A stunning and cosy country cottage, situated in a chocolate box location just a short stroll from Chillingham Castle and the unique wild cattle park.

A quiet, leafy no through road provides access to a gravelled courtyard parking area, which in turn leads to this stone-built listed cottage.

Presented to a high standard throughout, this Northumberland cottage provides tasteful, comfortable accommodation.

The cottage itself is set over two floors and offers two cosy bedrooms, a ground floor bathroom with bath and shower over, a family sitting room with traditional woodburning stove, a spacious dining room and a well-equipped kitchen.

Your Northumberland cottage benefits from a fenced, private, lawned side garden with its own sun terrace and barbecue area, where you can wind down whilst enjoying the sound of the surrounding wildlife and trickling brook.

The pretty hamlet of Chillingham is steeped in history, offering walks, cycle routes and bridle paths from the doorstep of this Northumberland cottage, which provides a great location for exploring the coast and country of Northumberland.

The legendary coastline with miles of sandy beaches is located a short distance to the east and to the west lie the impressive Cheviot Hills, which provide bracing walks and challenging cycle routes.

The Percy Arms pub and restaurant, a Post Office and a village store are situated in the nearby village of Chatton, while the historic sites of Bamburgh, Holy Island and Alnwick, as well as Alnwick Gardens, are all within easy reach.

This delightful Northumberland cottage is an excellent base for exploring everything this wonderful county has to offer.

    • “Nice Week”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was easy to find, the instructions being easy to follow - good start! The cottage was well presented and clean and tidy. The resident caretakers were helpful when needed and unobstrusive when not! The private garden was welcome, with three dogs and the cottage was well situated for Chillingham Castle and the Wild Breed Park. Also a good touring centre for Northumberland and good shopping at Wooler. Recommended.”

    • “Ford Cottage is very cosy and all of the rooms were excellent. The enclosed garden was very useful for our dogs and the owners were very friendly.”

    Mr Keithley, Lymm, May 2015

    • “We were met by the owner who was extremely friendly and helpful, and showed us around. The cottage was immaculately clean, warm and comfortable. In a lovely quiet location but easy enough to get to places we wanted to visit. Had a nice secure garden for the dogs. The owners are real assets for the cottage, on hand to answer any queries and a wealth of local knowledge, which was both interesting and helpful.”
