The Property

Chatton 1.5 miles. One of four beautiful, stone-built cottages (three of which can be booked through Sykes Cottages) in the charming hamlet of Chillingham, just a stone's throw from Chillingham Castle and wild cattle park. This Chillingham cottage is in a peaceful setting, which has a magical feel to it, with leafy roads and a babbling brook on the doorstep, and the imposing castle of Chillingham dominating the backdrop beyond. This Chillingham cottage would be just the spot for a small family or perhaps as a cosy retreat for couples wanting a peaceful break. This Chillingham cottage has two good-sized bedrooms, a ground floor bathroom, fully-fitted kitchen, and a comfortable sitting room and separate dining room, both with woodburning stoves for those frosty nights. To the front of this Chillingham cottage there is a shared garden area with furniture, and to the rear is a further garden; the ideal spot to relax at the end of a long day exploring. This Chillingham cottage is surrounded by numerous forest walks and cycle tracks, the Heritage Coast is just ten miles to the east with its sandy beaches and many castles, including Holy Island, Bamburgh, Dunstanburgh, Alnwick and Warkworth, plus Alnwick Gardens is a very popular attraction, and well worth a visit. Just ten miles west, the imposing Cheviot Hills can be clearly seen in the distance, a must for avid walkers and cyclists. This pretty Chillingham cottage is a perfect base for exploring Northumberland and all it has to offer. Note: This cottage is close to Ref. 13774 and Ref. 13776 and together they can accommodate up to 12 people.
