  • "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

    It was in a great location with a lovely garden. We were very impressed by how well equipped the cottage was - particularly the kitchen. We will definitely be recommending the cottage to friends and family.

  • "A lovely cottage that was well equipped and in a very quiet and beautiful location."

    The addition of Christmas decorations was a nice touch and made our stay all the more relaxing. The pub down the road from the cottage is a good place to eat and enjoy a drink. The local shop has all the essentials you need. I am sure we will stay here again.

    Thank you for such great feedback - glad you liked the cottage and the Christmas decorations! The village is great for all your essentials and the pub is so handy. Hopefully we can welcome you back to Hemmel Cottage again soon! Property Owner

    The cottage was spotlessly clean on arrival the sofas and beds were comfortable. Only slight disappointment was the washer was out of order. Not a big problem and I accept things can break down.

    The bath needs an anti-slip mat. A pole is needed in order to open velux windows, borrowed pole from neighbouring cottage in order to open.

  • "Hemmel cottage was delightful."

    Lovely quiet location. The Cottage is well equipped; warm; comfortable and a good size for our family of 4. We will definitely be back. We visited the Percy Arms and had a lovely evening meal as well as good breakfasts. The Cottage is well placed for visiting attractions in the area and a good base for a week away.

    Car developed clutch problems! But couldn't fault the cottage. Your usual high standard. Could have done with a sun umbrella. Good complaint to have. Had some glorious weather.

  • "Beautiful cottage within a quiet village which has a lovely local pub and small shop."

    We found it was the ideal location to easily access the surrounding areas- Berwick, Bamburgh, Seahouses and Newton all within a 20/30 minute drive. The cottage was extremely well equipped and we felt it was a real "home from home". We will definitely look to book again!

    Set back from the road it offered every comfort and also privacy. It has a lovely garden too which was unexpected. The area is great for walking and exploring; town, country and coast! Lots of good places to eat nearby too.

  • "This cottage had everything you would need including thoughtful extras, like a box of emergency supplies."

    So if you had forgotten your toothbrush, sanitary supplies or needed a needle and thread - there it was in the box!! Brilliant idea. 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. Probably the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in. Plus it was very comfortable, and had a private, well equipped garden so we could sit outside comfortably. To add to all that, we loved the location. Perfect.

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.
