  • "Lovely cottage, layout is great, great location, warm and cosy."

    Quiet and peaceful. One little recommendation as it is very dark, a must for amazing night skies, a torch or sensor lights in bathroom and en-suite at night would be useful to avoid putting light on for anyone needing night visit

    Thanks for the great comments and glad you had a super break at Hemmel Cottage. We do actually provide torches, they are kept in the main kitchen cupboard for guest's use. Property Owner

  • "An absolutely terrific cottage situated in a really beautiful location."

    Everything about the cottage spoke of the owners attention to detail. Chatton village itself was wonderfully quiet, yet had the Percy Arms pub for breakfasts, dinner and drinks. And there was even a quaint post office and village shop. As for the cottage, it was great to have 2 parking spaces right next to the cottage. The cottage garden was very private. No issues with accessing the cottage keys on arrival. Inside the cottage we were surprised at the real quality of the place, yet so homely and quiet. Everything we might have needed was there. We highly recommend Hemmel Cottage and hopefully we will be returning next year.

    Thanks so much for the fantastic review! We're glad you enjoyed your time at Hemmel Cottage -it really is an ideal location for exploring everything that Northumberland has to offer. Our housekeeper does a great job making sure our guests have a wonderful stay. Property Owner

    The property is well appointed and the village a great base for exploring Northumberland. Guest information pack was informative and the guidebooks in the property helped plan some day trips. My wife is an avid reader and enjoyed reading the many books in the bookshelf, including one on the area of Glasgow that we reside in. Quite the coni coincidence.

  • "Really excellent cottage and location - kitchen living area and bedrooms all excellent."

    Would have been useful to have logs for the wood burner or access (key) to the shed for the outdoor cushions (the comfortable wicker furniture not available during our stay) . Just minor points since most days were out cycling, walking or sightseeing. The power cut on Saturday 30th April 8am did not affect us since it was our leaving day. May be useful to provide guidance on response for future guests - locals had indicated this has occurred in the past. Overall great accommodation and local facilities such as the Percy arms

    Hi, we are really glad you had such a good time at Hemmel Cottage and enjoyed the great local facilities Apologies for the garden furniture, unfortunately it was severely damaged in Storm Arwen and we have replaced it with a temporary set. You should have had access to the shed for the cushions, but apologies if the key was not available, this will be rectified. Power cuts in the area are a rare occurrence and other than Storm Arwen have been very short, but we take your comments on board. Kind regards Property Owner

There was salt and pepper in the kitchen cupboards, dishwasher tablets, lots of fresh clean tea towels, spare bulbs, extra bath towels, you name it. The fridge had a new carton of milk in it and there was a bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival. It took a while to find the ironing board (tucked away in the spare bedroom), but the iron was readily to hand on top of the washing machine.

The property

This wonderfully appointed barn conversion rests within the village of Chatton, tucked between the picturesque National Park and the breath-taking coastline of Northumberland.

Hemmel Cottage promises a heart-warming stay for a family looking to get away from it all and spend some time within an area filled with attractions and activities to keep everyone busy.

Rest your walking boots at the entrance, before stepping into this elegantly presented dwelling, offering everything you will need during your stay.

It comes with two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a charming twin bedroom, each promising a delightful space to wake up to each morning.

Completing the interior is a spacious, open-plan living room which boasts a wonderful blend of contemporary styling and traditional features to offer an idyllic space to spend your evenings relaxing.

Prepare a delicious home-cooked meal within the amply equipped kitchen before gathering the family around the dining table for a sociable evening where you can tuck into your meal and plan the days ahead.

Look forward to sinking into the sofa with a deserved refreshing beverage in hand whilst the warmth of the woodburning fire fills the space with a sense of tranquillity during those chilly winter evenings.

During the warmer months, spend time within the rear garden, where you and your loved ones can soak up the sun before heading out the day.

For those special occasions, a short stroll will bring you to the local pub which serves a superb dining menu and a welcoming atmosphere to complement, and for picking up the necessities, you will also find a local shop within a stone’s throw.

For those feeling active, venture to the Northumberland National Park where you can climb The Cheviot and discover the Linhope Spout Waterfall.

Alternatively, brush up on the local history by visiting Chillingham Castle or head to the coast and unwind on Bamburgh Beach.

Hemmel Cottage is a superb base for exploring all that Northumberland has to offer.
