The property

A stone-built, semi-detached property situated in the Northumberland town of Wooler, just a short drive from the Cheviot Hills.

This lovely cottage provides perfect accommodation for families or groups wishing to sample a traditional Northumberland holiday.

In an ideal location for all local amenities, Motte Cottage retains many original features including beams and exposed stone walls, and is aptly named as the property dates back to 1870 and was built into the side of a 12th century motte.

The light and airy rooms, including a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a warming woodburning stove are traditionally furnished and decorated to a high standard to offer a very comfortable holiday home, whilst the four bedrooms are individually styled, with two set on the second floor and three having their own en-suites.

To the rear of the cottage there is a small enclosed patio area with seating and a small storage area within the courtyard that can be used for bike storage.

The Cheviots foothills are just a short stroll away with walks and cycle routes that will delight those seeking outdoor pursuits, whilst a short drive will take you to the Heritage Coastline, with endless beaches and castles galore.

Motte Cottage is an excellent destination for that long awaited get together with friends and family.

About the location

WOOLER

Berwick-upon-Tweed 16 miles; Bamburgh 15 miles; Alnwick 18 miles.

Wooler is a delightful, historic market town on the banks of the River Till, one of the tributaries of the Tweed, nestling in the foothills of the Cheviots which form part of the Pennine Way. Known locally as 'The Gateway to The Cheviots', Wooler has a selection of hotels and eating places and offers a magnificent location for exploring the whole of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. Situated on the edge of the Northumberland National Park, Wooler is just a short drive away from the historic town of Alnwick with its famous Castle and Gardens, and the well preserved Garrison town of Berwick-upon-Tweed. Chillingham Castle with its ancient herd of wild white cattle and Coldstream, just over the Scottish border, are also a short drive away.
