    “This cottage has beautiful views ...”

    This cottage has beautiful views and great garden. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the owner's welcome pack was appreciated. If 6 people are staying here then 1 toilet in the bathroom

    This cottage has beautiful views and great garden. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the owner's welcome pack was appreciated. If 6 people are staying here then 1 toilet in the bathroom can be tricky and the kitchen is on the small side. It would also be nice to have more local information available with maybe a few games and books for the children. Considering the weather was cold we were always warm and cosy, so thank you for a welcome break in this beautiful part of the North.

The property

Wooler 2.7 miles.

This delightful corner cottage, a former reading room, sits in a courtyard setting, and is ideally located in the heart of the Cheviot Hills, nestling at the foot of Akeld Hill and surrounded by beautiful countryside, on the very edge of the Northumberland National Park.

Boasting romantic rural views, this Wooler cottage offers spacious and comfortable holiday accommodation, ideal for families and friends to get together and enjoy a memorable holiday in an idyllic location.

Set over the ground floor level, this Wooler cottage has three charming bedrooms, each thoughtfully decorated to offer a soothing night’s sleep, while the cosy sitting room has French doors to the rear garden, and the dining area provides the perfect setting for a celebratory dinner or leisurely lunch.

Outside this Wooler cottage is a large lawned garden complete with patio, furniture and barbecue, ideal for family entertaining, alfresco meals in the sun or enjoying a refreshing drink at the close of an activity-filled day.

A short drive from this Wooler cottage will take you to a very good family-run pub and restaurant, serving locally-sourced cuisine, and from the doorstep, the whole of the Northumberland National Park is just waiting to be discovered.

A little further afield are the delights of the Heritage Coast, where castles and golden beaches are plentiful, or why not take advantage of a complimentary horse ride at the owner’s nearby stables?

This is a perfect Wooler cottage for a rural break in Northumberland.

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.
